Why can't life give me five bloody minutes to get back up before kicking me in the face again........

It was all going pretty well.

You may know we are hoping to get a house next week.

One of dp's deals just cancelled and he's lost £1300. Our deposit. Fuck.

The company i got a loan from ages ago couldn't get hold of me over £16 so they called my Mum and my Nan who now aren't talking to me for getting them 'involved'.

I've F*ing had enough.

Sorry for swearing.

On no! Poor you SF.
Life is a sh*t at times isn't it?
If its any consaltation, I am having a VERY horrible day too.

stressedmummy Tue 10-May-05 20:42:04

swiper what have i told you?????? dont let the bas*ards grind you down...............

fairyfly Tue 10-May-05 20:46:35

Personally i'm under the impression that its because
one day lots of wonderful things will happen to counteract it, my mother thinks thats heaven, i still have a sneeking suspicion it's going to result in my clothes falling off at a firemans convension

sorry your having a rough time of it, hang on in there, remember if things can go horribly wrong then they can go wonderfully right too

stressedmummy Tue 10-May-05 20:47:23

See the thread titled "Not having a good day & want to run away from everything"
It is a long post!

stressedmummy Tue 10-May-05 20:49:03

Alcahol is helping me a tiny bit ATM!

swiperfox Tue 10-May-05 20:49:35

but its the mouse house Angel!!!!!!!!

Things have gone very badly for us for the last 3 years. I thought in the last week that this was it - everything was coming together and we were finally going to get a break for once. But no. Some F**er has to go and ruin it all again.

stressedmummy Tue 10-May-05 20:51:32

I don't know what to suggest.
Life is a sh*t at times, that's 4 sure.

swiperfox Tue 10-May-05 20:52:22

Isn't it just!!

fairyfly Tue 10-May-05 20:53:37

it's hard when you get a kick and your still reeling form the last kick. personally i just try and not put it all together in one unit anymore and deal with each new problem seperately, let the past go a little it makes you a little stronger

stressedmummy Tue 10-May-05 20:55:27

I have only stopped crying in the last 30 mins, since I began at 3.30pm & that is only thanks to the alcahol!

Jzee Tue 10-May-05 20:57:34

Yip, I used to get down about day to day stuff, but that was before I was diagnosed with a critical illness. Honestly, the little blips in life are not worth getting you down.

almostanangel Tue 10-May-05 20:58:09

swiper i dont have any faoths ,,,but i belive in fate if your meant to get that house you will if not then its not the right one so wait hunny ,,,,,,,,,,listen the sh*t i have been though in the past year must be for a reason,

I did prepare a post telling you that these things go in cycles........with loads of examples from my life from the last 4 years..then I realised I was self counselling and I had prepared a massive post that was F**K all help to any one, not even me

So take it as read, I know where you are coming from.

swiperfox Tue 10-May-05 21:03:03

Thanks guys. You're all so right. It's just because I've been a bundle of nervous energy since Saturday and that's why I'm feeling this 100 times more than i normally would.

I'm a big believer in fate and thats why i thought this was going to work out..... DP got his biggest deals ever the other week at work which meant we had the money to move - it was a last minute decision on Friday to move. The mouse house came on the market literally while he was in the estate agents so the agent offered it to him, we went to see it and its perfect.... its all too good to be true so i guessed that it was fate the way it worked out.......

almostanangel Tue 10-May-05 21:06:08

imagine your on a beach and you walk into the sea ..........try to stop the waves coming no matter how much you push scream shout and cry they still keep coming so relax and ride them,,,,,,,,,,,eventually you will get where you are going

fairyfly Tue 10-May-05 21:07:12

tbh the best thing we can learn is how to deal with ups and downs ( not major tragedies) because they will never ever not hit anyone, its part of being human

AngelCakeUmm Tue 10-May-05 21:11:32

AAA i like your example i will remember that [sile]
