Today has been a difficult day. The person who caused all this grief for e wanted to meet up either I'm daft or plain stupid I agreed to meet and it ended up with more pain and heartache and I'm in tears again

I just guess I need to get a backbone

I've been having internet problems so haven't been online very much but I've been thinking about you and willing you on. Sorry to hear you have another infection - all these things do pull you down, but hang on in there and you will get better, even if it takes a little while.

I've never been in as bad a place as you but others on here have and really understand what you are going through. So try out all their suggestions, you're sure to find one or two techniques that help you along the way. And just keep reminding yourself that you have lots of cyber friends on here and lean on their support when you need it.

I'm still in a pretty dark place right now tho I'm not in tears much now

I am still thinking bout taking one day at a time

I woke up with a flipping water infection so will have to call in the doctors this afternoon for the walk in surgery

I've finished the scarf I was making so will have to think of something else to keep me busy

I started digging my tree stuff out but give up cos I couldn't concentrate so maybe after the new year if I'm feeling stronger ill go and get lost into my history as I've not done out in ages

I still feel pretty numb and feel so lost

Tinkers I so pleased to see your posts. I know you are still having panic attacks and feeling low. But keep practising your breathing exercises and relaxation. Why not see if there are any groups in your area or ask your DR for a referral to a group to learn relaxation. I went to a group at a local mental health support clinic. Also did a short course with another mental health support group with psychologists. They were very helpful. Shame the course didn't last longer as everyone was sad to say goodbye.
Have you any rescue remedy yet? When I was having panic attacks and having to go to work.....while waiting for my lift I found a little trick I'd learnt at one of the clinics helped. I put half a dozen tiny things in my pocket, button, marble, bead, safety pin, tiny rubber (end of pencil) and a penny. I made up a sequence in my head and searched for each item in my pocket in sequence. It can be done slowly to bring down your tension level, and there fore relaxing you. Let me know if you try this how it goes x

Thank you so much ann


AnninGlos Report 7 Dec 2013 15:03

Maybe you need another course of antibiotics. Just keep practising what Carole told you to do. Copy and print it if you can so you have it to refer to. <3
