I've had to catch up on a bit of reading but I'm sorry to hear things are difficult at the moment by eck. It sounds like you're a great mum and are incredibly supportive of your husband.
I agree with you that SOLB needs to be kinder to herself (I think we all do really). And you're right about feeling better means feeling more sometimes. I think also it can be that feeling crap when you seem to be doing better is sometimes a reaction to doing better. Sometimes the idea of doing better is incongruent with how you feel about yourself.
SOLB, by eck is right, you're honesty and care brings a lot to this forum. You seem to be doing an awful lot though and caring an awful lot for other people. I'm not saying this is a bad thing. On airplanes they do say put the air mask thingy on yourself, then your child. It's important to look after number 1 sometimes.
Patronising replies done!
SOLB The hair looks good, but never mind the hair, Love those cheek bones girl!
Bit late with that I know but, I have been busy for the last week so, I only saw the picture today.
By 'eck. any of those brownies left?
What's up SOLB? I'm glad you're still battling.
Had a 10k race today, it was hilly but I felt I put in a good performance (because I'm knackered now!).
Blowing bubbles is an awesome idea By Eck and you have a really nice rational for them. I just do it with my niece because it entertains her for a few minutes!
Thanks by 'eck that's very sweet. I think bubbles are a lovely idea I got caught hallucinating by the therapist today. She is going to talk to the doctor tomorrow - I suspect that means they will up the anti-psychotics
Well done on your race Ben-o ... where have your faces gone?!!
Thanks By 'Eck, I'll have a look into it when I'm feeling a bit less pathetic
Ha ha I think you're right, I don't want to go outside today so can't venture out for a slab of chocolate!
That said I am still half hoping I can be big and brave and go for a little bimble at 8ish ... not sure if it's a realistic hope though *sighs*
I've wasted today so far. Hope your day has been more productive darling
oops to the gluten in Moo, hope all is calm now - no one is perfect
Eeek to the dentist, do you know which part you are scared of?
that's true, today is no longer totally wasted cos I popped on here and I've sent a few emails that I've been putting off for ages
What you need is an emergency chocolate delivery service.
There must be some enterprising soul who can fill this role.
When I was a lot younger, people who wanted something from the shops, but could not go themselves, used to get a passing child, or youth to go for them, but perhaps those days are gone.
Perhaps someone with a soft centre?
(BD ducks in anticipation of slap)
I have tried dialing 999 but apparently they don't consider a no chocolate emergency serious enough to require intervention *tuts and shakes head at the state of the world today*
SCHHHHHLAAAAAAAAAAAP!! didn't wanna disappoint you Big D
I am sure they will understand By 'Eck, when I registered with my Dentist they even had a section on their form asking if you were nervous about the dentist and asking you to let them know what you're scared of and if there's anything they can do to help.
I suspect you are not the only one that puts of going to the dentist darling, they'll just be busy fixing you up they won't have time to sit in judgement.
Ewww to chaos and mess ... nawty nawty Mr By 'Eck!!!
Oo maybe Miss By 'Eck will be able to keep your mind of the dentist and keep you entertained ... should we send her a joke book or two?
I doubt that, you wouldn't be so concerned about the sort of Mummy you are if you were a bad Mummy. You can only do your best sweetheart none of us is superhuman x
Recovering from virtual concussion - I put "bad mummy" and Dentist in a well known search engine and got:
Ring any bells anyone?
*kisses Big D's head better*
Ha I've heard tales of honest Mummy's like these! I had a giggle with SOLBsis yesterday about the joys of being able to mutter naughty things under your breath when your toddler is driving you up the wall. SOLBsisMini is absolutely wonderful; she's spirited and intelligent, lively and full of life .... and just sometimes her poor sleep deprived Mummy would just really like to be going back to bed at 11am with a book and a mug of tea whilst surrounded by silence. I am in awe of Mummy's and Daddy's I think you do such amazing things every day.
The trick is to get the little dears to to grow up and leave home.
It can take some time.
Ewww good effort Moo *hides Eric the stripey knitted snail!* Nah SOLBsis doesn't get to sleep until 11, her Moo is nocturnal - she comes alive at night, they are cosleeping and Moo has taken to bullying her Mummy in the wee small hours, the bullying comes complete with pinching and face squashing! Though it sounds like they are making some progress with getting her into a cot so all will be well eventually..
