I'm OK but have lots of catching up with ordinary jobs (--and the Irishman--) as my stomach bug went on all last week sad Time and a large pot of yoghurt seems to have done the trick, though.

Doubt and uncertainty are a real pain, especially with regards to health. So thinking particularly of vicar and snowy, with waves to all.

Hi all,

(((Hugs))) snowy really hope you are being well looked after and manage to get some rest. Thinking of you.

dumdum and silvery hope you're both feeling better this eve and next week is a healthier one.

ed massive congrats on starting back at work

lem how's things has your anxiety calmed down?

vicar hi any chance of an autumn type thread - falling leaves in the village...?

I think week and weekend has caught up with me, not good today. But tomorrow should be better.

Take care all

very busy week and weekend

LEMisdisappointed Sun 20-Oct-13 20:30:36

Hi CiQ good to hear from you. Sorry you have had a bad day, but like you say, tomorrow is a new one. I am ok, i had my last counselling session, my counsellor left to work in a prison grin I do feel a bit shakey about it really as the friday counselling session sort of gave a full stop to the week, so something to work towards and a line drawn if the week was pants. I can see that i am getting better and i certainly don't feel so hopeless as i did. My anxiety is still there - its like a friend who is a pain in the arse but you don't have the heart to dump so you sort of put up wth them. I think i'll always have anxiety in some form or another and maybe i'll have to be on medication more than i am not. I keep forgetting to take my meds and as a consequence wonder if maybe i should try wihtout them. I don't want to slip backwards though.

This thread is quiet these days, i look in on it every day even if i don't have time or have nothing to post. It is still such a comfort to me. I know that others are lurking and not posting so i wish you all well and really hope that you don't feel you cannot post because you haven't posted for a while. I consider folk on this thread as my friends (soft cow emoticon) and friends can be away for ages and just slip back into our lives like they were never gone.

LEMisdisappointed Sun 20-Oct-13 20:32:12

Oh and i forgot to say, snowy, thinking of you and i hope you are doing ok xxx

ColouringInQueen Sun 20-Oct-13 20:41:28

lem big hug emoticom. I too find this thread a real comfort and like you now am very fond of everyone.

Can imagine finishing with your counsellor is tough. Do you have anything in mind to do instead?

I am def better than I was at the beginning of the year. Tho days like today are very demoralising. I am hoping some of my anxiety is actually fluoxetine related. But having said that am still having some pms break through which does make me apprehensive about coming off it!

LEMisdisappointed Sun 20-Oct-13 20:43:47

I have a mirena coil so i don't get PMS, i'm not entirely happy about the coil but it is the fear of PMS returning that makes me keep it.

ColouringInQueen Sun 20-Oct-13 21:07:42

Glad that does the trick. Any sort of hormonal contraception just does not agree with the women in my family sadly. I have pretty bad pms usually. Didnt realise til this year that fluoxetine is sometimes used to treat severe pms. Will bear that in mind as I've had months where I've been very depressed for 8 days of the month. ..

LEMisdisappointed Sun 20-Oct-13 21:59:34

My PMT was scary bad when i wasn't depressed and struggling wth anxiety - i am not sure i would survive it now if im honest. sad With this coil i don't hvae periods, i do notice some slight pms symptoms from time to time but nothing lke the homicidal maniac i am sure i would become wthout it.

ColouringInQueen Sun 20-Oct-13 22:12:45

Oh that sounds rubbish. Glad the coil is working for you. I know what you mean about homicidal maniac (wink] I would have moments of pure rage...

Now my main symptoms are bloating and carb cravings which aren't fun, but better...

Really should get an early night tonight as haven't slept too well last couple nights which never helps... but can't quite face it now dp has gone up. Should have gone up when I could have had the place to myself for a bit...

Really nice to chat tho. Like you say the thread's been a lot quieter recently, but I would really miss it if it wasn't here.

ThatVikRinA22 Sun 20-Oct-13 23:25:52
