Just that really havent got a week to right down all that is wrong in my world other than RL is testing me far too much lately. My dd is poorly, my bro isnt getting any better, my eldest is going to die if no one gets their act together and I have a huge hit list that I would gladly go to prison for. Nuff said sigh so just one or two honks would be really good sad

Honk, Honk, Honk, Honk, Honk, Honk,

Have half a dozen, is there anything that we can do to help you?
DS used to keep a death list of people that were making his life hell. It used to help him control the rage, but the wanting to smash didn't go away.
What's up with DD, is it something temporary?

BeeMom Sat 29-Jun-13 15:15:57

Canada goose honks from across the "pond". When it piles up, it all seems so much more overwhelming confused

PolterGoose Sat 29-Jun-13 15:18:21

So sorry for you, sending lots and lots of HONKs your way

(((((hugs))))) and flowers and brew or wine

Take care coff we are here

Eyesunderarock Sat 29-Jun-13 15:19:24

So it does. sad

coff33pot Sat 29-Jun-13 15:39:00

Thank you all very much. No nothing anyone can really help with or rectify to be honest.

My brother is still blind with Dystonia/Parkinsons/OCD and now its looking going to the MS route but no one can confirm yet unless there is another attack. How they can work that out when he has attacks daily of all sorts I shall never know. He printed some beautiful pieces for me and has had to stop even that and has told me I can have the equipment as he rather it helped me. Lovely thought but so so sad about it all and angry as he doesnt deserve this shit.

DD well she is battling so hard but support promises fell through and lies were told. You know the usual professional bull. She had a massive fit yesterday due to starvation (anorexia) to top that as she moved her cpn (who never saw her at all bar twice) closed her file down so we have to start all over again. She is fighting asking and begging and I am fed up on all the deaf ears.

On top of this to find out that all those years ago I was sending my little girl on parental visits (no choice) to find out she was left with others and yes you can read between the lines......sad With everything else she has had to go through and deal with this is the last straw for me.

I am so so angry at the world and all that is in it right now.

Eyesunderarock Sat 29-Jun-13 15:57:57

Oh coff33, I was having a rant on a different thread about how angry and disappointed I was with my DD's uni and the pastoral care. Two years ago, I waved off a gifted girl to study a subject she loved and with all the practical life skills to live independently. Lots of Aspie traits, but they were all part of her quirkiness, not life-threatening.
Now I'd settle for her alive, sane and off the prozac. It isn't fair.

coff33pot Sat 29-Jun-13 16:08:11

I think you need a hug and a honk too thanks

Eyesunderarock Sat 29-Jun-13 16:14:05

She's sitting on the floor with a cinnamon bagel and her brother is draped on the sofa behind her. They are watching 'The Incredibles' and there is a complete lack of tension in the room.
I want to keep them in the safe bubble forever. smile

Honking for the pair of you. flowers

Nothing so serious at this end, but I do need to get the red mist to fade before I'm fit to be seen in public as the latest school shenanigans have emerged today.

wine all round methinks as my usual breadmaking (kneading and beating the dough is theraputic) just isn't cutting it.

Coff - is there ANY way at all you could get DD referred to the Bethlem Hospital as it's the best adolescent unit in the UK. (She'd have to be an inpatient). I think it's a satellite of the Maudsley if that helps.

frizzcat Sat 29-Jun-13 19:05:10

No advice or feel good words just
flowers wine brew and a big gaggle of honking honks for you all

hazeyjane Sat 29-Jun-13 19:10:06

Coff, I don't know what say, but I am thinking of you, and hoping for some good things for you and your family soon. Honks for you. X

TheNinjaGooseIsOnAMission Sat 29-Jun-13 19:57:18

honks and hugs for you coff, so shit all that promised help disappeared into nothingness brew

Flappingandflying Sat 29-Jun-13 20:42:20

Honking for you. You poor thing. Your poor DD.

lougle Sat 29-Jun-13 20:58:21

Honks for you and all that need them xx

MumuDeLulu Sat 29-Jun-13 21:07:01

Coff33. Just googled to try & find the unit boch is talking about. If its this one, website has an online referral form. Says they take GP referrals, so maybe you could get her wait listed now, then start arguing for local lot to fund it.

NoHaudinMaWheest Sat 29-Jun-13 22:27:33

Coff so sorry there is so much going on for you. I was thinking you hadn't been around much - no wonder.

MumuDeLuLu your link is for the Maudsley unit where my Ds was. They only take up to 18. I think Coff's dd is older but the unit Boch referred to is part of the same hospital and could be worth looking at.

Honks x100 for you Coff.

Oh no, coff33. I'm so sorry things are continuing to be so tough. (((Hugs))) and honks.

Honks and wine for you.

Please vent further about your hit list if you need to. The world is a horrible unfair place sometimes, hoping your world gets a little nicer soon.

coff33pot Mon 01-Jul-13 21:08:27

Thank you all been hectic. Went to reply now and just got call paramedic called ambulance as she may be having heart attack sad

PolterGoose Mon 01-Jul-13 21:16:33

Oh coff, sending more HONKs, positive thoughts and flowers

NoHaudinMaWheest Mon 01-Jul-13 21:17:06

Oh Coff so sorry to hear that. Do hope she is OK.

(((hugs)))) for you and Honks.

Honks. So sorry it has come to this. So sorry about what is being asked of you but hope you get an opportunity to break hell once there!

MumuDeLulu Mon 01-Jul-13 21:23:34
