granofoz that makes me soooo mad I own a bakery in mansfield oz which is on the way to one of our snow field so my customer's are anything from jag drivers to the old farm utes the farm boys come in covered in oil or cow poo but never if I've got a shop full they wait untill the coast is clear other shop's in town wont serve them and you know they are my best customers if they have muddy boots they leave them at the door. I once had a deaf couple come in they were looking around the shop.(Didn't know they were deaf at that time) so i went to see if they would like some help as you do there daughter jumped in and said mum and dad cant hear I just smiled at her turned back to her parents made shore they could see my face and got the fingers pointing they left very happy . everyone of us are diffrent and we all deserve respect its not the wrapping its the person on the inside that counts. best wishes to all

Irene, that sounds caring of you with your customers. There is far too much discrimination in this world, did anyone watch the programme the other night about the Dalits, previously known as Untouchables, in India? I was so sad for those poor people who through the fact that they were born to Dalits had to continue the lowly and scorned lifestyle.

I know o.h. won't be any better unless he has medication if diagnosed, he is always this way, one of the symptons of temporal lobe epilepsy is sudden and unexpected outbursts of aggression and agitation, which fitted him to a t, but when I mentioned that to the specialist, he poohpoohed the idea, saying that was a fallacy. Shame as I had been hoping o.h. had a medical reason for being so obnoxious,altho I do still think there is a link and someone else who has a relative with the t-l epilepsy, has the aggression problems badly even with medication. I am afraid o.h. killed any feelings I had a long time ago but for many reasons I am not in a position to leave at the moment. I think when I can leave I will feel less depressed and stressed.

Gran with Ruby Slippers, until recently I wouldn't tell anyone about my ocd, here there is still a big stigma to ocd sufferers. Sounds as if you have much more to cope with than me, well done for going out when you can and shame on such rude people that accost you.


Off to docs in a little while.

Hope all with doctors appointments start on the road to recovery soon.
Carolina will go back and sponsor you tomorrow when I have more time. Well done making the commitment to run. Something to focus on will be beneficial to your health, as well as for a good cause.
Thank you to all those who do not suffer but leave good wishes to those of us who do.

well good for you, how very brave of you - do hope you get the outcome you would like to have - what made you think they were all looking at you? Is this a feeling you often get or were you wearing something outrageous!!!! Only kidding. Keep us posted on what happens.

Love Ann X


AnnCardiff Report 29 Jan 2008 17:03

fingers crossed for you Dave!!

Carolina - have been on the website and have sponsored you!! never ever done that before - quite easy really


Julie Report 29 Jan 2008 17:44

Afternoon All....

Hope everyone is feeling ok today.

Dave...well done you, that would have been really hard for me to do too n know exactly where you're coming from in saying you felt like everyone was looking as you as soon as you walked in. I pulled out of my wedding to my ex (good job too!!) for that reason....I felt sick n panicked everytime I thought about standing up in front of everyone n having them all look at ME...!! scary. Hope you get a result :o)

Am having another 'Good Day'....2 on the trot...can't be bad. Wont pull out of appointment Thursday tho cos I know unless I get some help my 'Good Days' will soon be outweighed by the 'Bad Days.

Have arranged for another walk tomorrow night with the girl next door so that'll be good.

Patricia....have Pm'd you in response to your reply. Some of it I will copy below for others to read....hope it helps n makes some kind of sense. It's just how I see things when I have a clear head on..!!

'' can understand fully what your saying, often people think that a mother on anti-depressants is an unfit mother....but infact it's quite the opposit. It shows a woman with alot on her plate, understanding & seeking the help she requires to be able to function properly for herself & her family....there's nothing wrong with that. We all have to admit we need help from time to time which is what I didn't do until this thread was started............but since then I have felt so much better, knowing I'm not alone in my, sometimes, black cloud. Even tho I'm feeling better I'm still going because I know unless I really do something about it it won't last. The thought of self harming frightens me, have been there n done it n it didn't get me anywhere ''

Have a good evening everyone....

Julie :o)xxxx

Hello everyone, I haven't been on today as my chemo tablets are making me very nausious, and I have been in so much pain with my back and legs I didn't know where to put myself. I've just popped on to see how everyone is doing and I have been thinking of you all.
Well done Dave, that is my trouble, even worse now with the way I walk and hospital waiting rooms are always full, uggghhh.
Glad to see you are still positive Jules and I will look forward to hearing how you go on.

AnnCardiff Report 29 Jan 2008 18:11

Oh poor you Caz - are you OK just sitting by the computer or is it too painful for you? I think we'll have to organise a coach trip together - boy what a laugh we would all have, d'you think? If only I could win bigtime on the lorrery I'd take us all on a cruise


Julie Report 29 Jan 2008 18:19

Hi Both....

We can dream can't we would you take us...??

Caz......sorry to hear you're not good today. You're such an inspiration to others.

Patricia Report 29 Jan 2008 19:06

thanks everyone for the support and PMs its so good to see people slowly making small positive steps forward i learned taking a huge great leap one day setting big goals for the next few days overdoes it, you drop back again feeling like you failed. for me small steps to no timetable work better. going for a walk to the shop sounds good but too big a goal for me but if i get my coat on and leaving the front door i am happy....... getting as far as the postbox im chuffed. half way and a smile at a passer by is just as much a step forward and theres always another day.
take heart everyone lets take a few small steps together........ followed by a huge group hug


RStar Report 29 Jan 2008 19:24

That group hug sounds good Pat!


AnnCardiff Report 29 Jan 2008 19:26

a cyber hug for all and a world cruise for all if the lottery numbers come up!! If only


Carolina Report 29 Jan 2008 20:13

first of all i want to thank ann for sponsoring me i really appreciate it
now about the dr i went this afternoon and he as given me two lots of tablets the only thing is i am scared to take them i keep thinking i don't need them but i know i do if that makes sense
thank you all

carolina xx


AnnCardiff Report 29 Jan 2008 20:27

No it does not make sense young lady - you start taking them NOW or I'll haunt you and so will the rest of us!!! They will probably take a few days before they kick in but you should soon be feeling the benefit - I would not manage without my tablets and I am sure everyone else on here who takes them will tell you the same. If you find they don't agree with you go back to your GP and explain why - I was given Seroxat once and was awake all flippin' night - so he changed them. now you will be nagged and nagged until you tell us you are taking them, and you will also be receiving rather a lot of pm's. Got that!!

Love Ann XXX [it was a pleasure to sponsor you]


Carolina Report 29 Jan 2008 20:54

ann i haven't been called young or a lady in a long time come to think about it i have never been called a lady thank you
