So glad you started this basset - I was going to, if you hadn't.

fluffy I have come to think of you as a friend, sending usual [hugs] to you and yours.

fluffydressinggown Thu 28-Nov-13 17:16:13

Sat in A&E with self h arm again. I don't want to be alive any more. So tired of this shit.

SnowyMouse Thu 28-Nov-13 18:05:43

Oh fluffy sad You can get through this...I hope they treat you ok and you're out quickly with appropriate support.

I am back home, the doctors who stitched me up were very nice. When we got home we discovered that the bloody boiler is not working. So no hot water or heating for us. Grrrr.

In the hospital I had a big cry, I want to cry in front of DH and tell him how sad I am inside but I can't seem to do it.

SunshineSuperNova Thu 28-Nov-13 22:57:40

Big hugs Fluffy xxx

Finding it hard not to cut, DH is home this afternoon so I only have to hold on for a few more hours.

SnowyMouse Fri 29-Nov-13 10:22:15

Can you take it step by step? Distraction etc.

TheSontaranPussycat Fri 29-Nov-13 15:11:20

fluffy even if you can't cry in front of DH, you can tell him you would like to. He already knows how sad you are inside. I expect he is trying to share your sadness by feeling it himself sad

And also, don't forget the cat - it is alright to cry in front of the cat, and to tell her how sad you are. (Some cats will even let you bury your face in their fur)

bassetfeet Fri 29-Nov-13 15:49:38

How are you doing Fluffy? I hope your Dh is home and the boiler will be fixed soon. That must have been awful to come home to. We need warmth and a bath when vulnerable .Fingers crossed x

Yes to crying with your cat and finding solace in the comfort they can give . She is a beauty . I look after a hound with huge ears . I cry at times and when upset I dry my tears on xxxx ears and make them really wet . There is poetry hmm But truthfully I do. A hound with snottered ears . Cats would never allow that but their fur is perfect for that cuddle and support when so low .

What have you got for distraction Fluffy? Nothing helping at the moment?

Sending a hug to you and hope you have a peaceful weekend thanks

fluffydressinggown Fri 29-Nov-13 16:00:58

I didn't cut which is good.

The boiler can't be fixed until Monday which is very annoying.

Thanks for your kind words.

bassetfeet Fri 29-Nov-13 16:08:02

That is good . Sorry about the boiler though . x

NanaNina Fri 29-Nov-13 21:03:28

Oh so many MN friends here........FDG I remember you well and your back story and so sorry you are feeling shit again. Glad the drs were nice to you. There are new guidelines for drs and nurses on SH aren't there - just hope they adhere to them. Mental health is a bugger isn't it because it never really goes away does it..........sort of lurks about to lay us low again whenever.

Hello dear bassetfeet and Snowy and TheSontaranPC

bassetfeet Fri 29-Nov-13 21:51:37

Hello lovely NanaNina ....hope all well with you thanks. Sleep well and sweet dreams Fluffy .

Hi everyone - and especially you fluffy.
Iwas thinking about you yesterday because I got a new navy blue glittery nail varnish from No7 at Boots. I love it but theyve got loads of other great colours. I remember reading the book about depression 'Sunbathing in the rain' and the author said that at times changing her nail varnish really kept her going. Hope you have a peaceful weekend x

fluffydressinggown Sat 30-Nov-13 14:52:36

Thanks for their good wishes. I'm safe this weekend, and trying not to worry too much about the week ahead.

NanaNina Sat 30-Nov-13 15:37:37

Yep that's the way to go FDG one day at a time or when things are really bad I sometimes reckon on one hour at a time, or even one quarter hour at a time.

Hi kizzie not sure nail varnish is going to do it for me! Are you still "blipping" - I am - never know when the bad day(s) are coming nor how long they will last (between 1 and 7 days usually..........ggggggrh) Why didn't I appreciate my life before the bloody depression descended, but I guess that's true for so many things.

SnowyMouse Sat 30-Nov-13 18:12:53

That's good that you are safe this weekend fluffy. One step at a time.

kizzie Sat 30-Nov-13 20:46:29

Hi Fluffy - glad you are safe this weekend. Take care

Nananina good to see you here. I'm n

kizzie Sat 30-Nov-13 20:48:42


I'm not sure I'll ever be completely confident re blips - always slIghtly cautious that just round the corner. But I do really try and make the most of good days.

FreezingFingers Sun 01-Dec-13 05:33:14

Am scared to gatecrash but I totally understand not knowing when the blips will happen
I had an unexpected apt with my cons. psycho last week & felt OK on the way there & he even said I looked calmer etc...
On the way home I passed 2 funerals , an emergency ambulance flashing the blues & twos & another sign I've forgotten (sorry sad ) hence the shit hit the fan that night
I have followed your threads for a while Fluffy (always been more of a reader than a writer.. well until now LOL) I empathise with everything I've read, send you much love & just go grab your kitten & give her a cuddle smile
I have doggies not cats - they are the only reason I get out of bed every morning - even though I wish I didn't have to & am usually calling them all the names under the sun at the time & wishing they didn't exist....
Don't mean it tho LOL
They don't deserve me - bless them - but I would be in an even worse place without them & try to repay their love when I am up to it, tenfold!
I am nervous to send this - and only hope it's received in the way I intended - I need help myself & don't wanna upset anyone ... and I know how ( apparently hmm ) I can take some comments the wrong way myself ..
Well - that's FB - The Devil's Work for anyone paranoid sad
Sorry - have just seen how much I've waffled - never ever wanted to but it's kept me out of trouble for a wee while
Hope you all have a safe weekend & I am really sorry if I've said anything I shouldn't have - I hope I haven't sad
