paperchain Wed 30-Jul-08 15:51:53

i have just baked 30 fairy cakes that look like mini pancakes the moral is remember to whisk after the two year old stirred the mixture

copingvquietly Wed 30-Jul-08 15:53:23

oh not nice.

ok where are you in the house?

jes74 Wed 30-Jul-08 15:53:56

though my eldest appears to think it is not funny and mummy needs cooking lessons

paperchain Wed 30-Jul-08 15:53:58

oh jes....

when I read your post I thought you were going to say they looked like nipples

copingvquietly Wed 30-Jul-08 15:54:30

jes74 Wed 30-Jul-08 15:54:53

well i wish but alas not even little nipples

jes74 Wed 30-Jul-08 15:56:24

maple syrup theres an idea i knew i should not cook with no sleep

paperchain Wed 30-Jul-08 15:56:33

I am in my bedroom

there are children playing somewhere making lots of noise and being very rough with each other

I want to do myself some harm

I HATE these feelings. Just when I thought I was on top of it and doing well it hits be wham bam in the middle of the eyes again

I dont think I am ever going to lose it

and in that case I cannot cope with it

copingvquietly Wed 30-Jul-08 15:58:32

its made you uptight yes?

is there anyway you can put on some music just loud enough to drown out thier noise?

jes74 Wed 30-Jul-08 16:01:37

when we move forward sometimes as cvq knows too well we get knocked off our feet again but time does heal and it sounds as though you are just beginning to get the support needed to allow the healing to begin

acutally no - it has nothing to do with them - other than they naturally over the years have contributed to my stress levels, but that isnt their faults

no, this came on suddenly

I have been swimming along for aabout a month and now sunk deep to the bottom of the ocean again with nothing to hold on to any more

jes74 Wed 30-Jul-08 16:03:03

i have read some of your threads and my own childhood was traumatic to say the least but i am here in a good place now

paperchain Wed 30-Jul-08 16:04:48

chameleon that made me lol

jes - thank you for your considerate post. But nothing significant has changed iykwim - with my therapy etc. I dont get any other support. I dont qualify. So I doint think ti is that

I am so bloody despondent

the reason ther are 3 children in teh house is purelyu and selfishly so I can hide

smurfgirl Wed 30-Jul-08 16:05:24

Just don't think for a bit (easier said than done), load music on, clean the house, sing a long as you clean.

When I can't SI I try very hard to not think - tbh I think sometimes when I am like that MN is not necessarily a good distraction - too quiet in my head.

paperchain Wed 30-Jul-08 16:06:07

hope that dint come out rude jes - didnt mean it to be rude

jes74 Wed 30-Jul-08 16:08:36

no not rude at all i have never had formal therapy i never asked but i have a great husband and good friends i have found time has worked for me and sheer stubborness on my part. I am sorry the support has not been there for you x

paperchain Wed 30-Jul-08 16:15:30

I am pleased for you jes

unfortunately it isnt workin like that for me
