Hey, tis me, Mouse

I'm in a very dark place right now after suffering a psychotic breakdown on Tuesday night.

I'm in a Chrisis Rehab house and will be for a while.

Behave yourselves and share the opal fruits, feed Barry wink and I'll soon be back to tell you all how fab you're doing and catch up with you all I hope. Sorry to let you down Babes, I just can't do life right now.

Mouse xxx

laladidah Sun 16-Oct-16 01:11:12

Oh mouse!! Silly thing thinking you have let us down.

Seems stupid to ask if you are ok? Sending lots of love to you.. I've not been in a chrisis rehab before, but I have been in a private type rehab, and the food was awesome.

Anyway; not being a dick, and hope you are ok xx

dementedma Sun 16-Oct-16 09:20:16

Ohmouse sweetheart. You have so much to cope with and have had for years. I'm glad you are somewhere safe and getting help. I saw the recent pics of nemo on FB and was so proud of him getting stuck into activities with the other boys. You have done such an amazing job with him and your beautiful daughter. And mrmouse loves you. grin . All will be well

lookingforhope Sun 16-Oct-16 09:42:10

Oh, lovely Mouse, you haven't let us down. Or yourself or anyone. You have so much to cope with and now you are in a safe place to get your strength back. We are all rooting for you and will be popping in to the centre (virtually) with gifts of cheese. Just concentrate on resting your lovely self and get better soon. Massive hugs and flowers lovely lady xxx

Sober love the pic by the way. I have often felt an allegiance to Sissy and Ada and it is only growing as I get older.

Pissing down here. Just cancelled a healthy walk in the park with my friend in case we drown! Doing coffee later instead. Lots of work to do today as computer not working Thursday / Friday and of course my two clients just have clashing deadlines - presentation for one / website rewrite for the other!

Hope all babes are safe and warm this stormy Sunday

laladidah Sun 16-Oct-16 10:09:08

hope pissing down here too. Dog is whinging to go out, but I can't face it yet, still snuggled in bed. We did have cuddles earlier though, v naughty as she is not normally allowed on the bed but she had a bath last night and mr L is away... glad the job is going well, you seem to have taken it all in your stride and sound very business like! Hope the rest of things is ok?

mouse, what is your (virtual) cheese of choice? I have some Red Leicester in the fridge, but can stretch to some Brie if it will cheer you up? Lots of love.

Hi ma, how's tricks?

Hello everyone else, hope you are all warm and cosy in this rubbish weather.

dementedma Sun 16-Oct-16 10:21:12

Hey*babes*. We had our rubbish weather yesterday although still dreich today. Am off to the recycling centre this morning - such excitement - and then to a local craft fair.
That's about the limit of my plans for today, other than some ironing at some point. Ds is into the second week of half term and hasn't moved off his xbox for a solid week, so might try and force him out for a walk.

tismesober Sun 16-Oct-16 10:21:51

mouse just wanted to add my good wishes for a speedy recovery.
Hope that you are getting all the love and support which you deserveflowersflowers

laladidah Sun 16-Oct-16 11:20:24

Two weeks of half term, ma! Lucky ds! Local craft fair sounds like fun though... I am taking the wee one for a walk, then riding the ridiculous pony (I look like such a tit on her as she is so weeny, oh and grumpy), then awaiting mr L's arrival back so we can have a serious 'talk', that I am not looking forward to...

Life is a bit rubbish at the moment. Love to mouse again!

dementedma Sun 16-Oct-16 13:52:09

Bought dd2 a beautiful mirror for Christmas at the Craft fair. Hand made with glass all around it. I want one...

laladidah Sun 16-Oct-16 14:12:19

Sounds gorgeous ma. I want one. Pic?

I had a crappy time on the crappy pony. Gave up after about half an hour and am now in the cafe by myself, with a latte and a toasty. Bliss. But I miss my horse.

walkerandtexasranger Sun 16-Oct-16 14:12:44

Long time lurker. Struggling with my alcohol intake and have been a heavy drinkers for nearly twenty years. My toddler ds is driving me crazy at the moment with typical toddler behaviour. My DH is very stressed with work and we are all trying to settle after relocating a few months ago. We are arguing a lot. I want to run away and hide. I can't do that so I drink.

dementedma Sun 16-Oct-16 14:13:48

Welcome ranger and well done on de-lurking to join us.
How much are you drinking?

walkerandtexasranger Sun 16-Oct-16 14:17:54

About a bottle of wine a day. Sometimes more. It is affecting my sleep very badly. I tend to pass out and wake up in the early hours, unable to get back to sleep.

I have drunk the same amount since uni. Weirdly, barely had a drop when pregnant (odd half of shandy and a tiny glass of wine at a wedding). I actually lost 10 lbs in the first three months of pregnancy and ended after gave birth was lighter than before I fell pregnant. I think it was all alcohol related. I just feel like I need a crutch - alcohol is such an easy choice. Cheapish. Everywhere....

dementedma Sun 16-Oct-16 14:21:18

I'm a bottle a day at my worst. Still drink pretty much every day, but now about half a bottle on average, and a bottle on a bad day. Have tried switching to G and T as I don't feel so crap afterwards but lapse back to wine by default..

walkerandtexasranger Sun 16-Oct-16 14:23:26

I try and do the same with gin! It doesn't quite work- I tend to have the gin and then a bottle wine ... not good

dementedma Sun 16-Oct-16 14:43:34

lala photo of mirror. Colours are nicer in real life, more golden

laladidah Sun 16-Oct-16 16:20:38

Welcome ranger, it's not a nice place to be, but you are in the right place, iyswim....

Had a lovely afternoon with my mum doing gardening after a less than productive ride on psycho pony. Now having a bath and doing some work before mr L comes home for the 'talk'. Can't wait, not.

ma that is beautiful!!!! Where can I get my hands on one?!

Love to the rest of you, especially mouse xx

dementedma Sun 16-Oct-16 16:29:05

I have her business card lala so will send you the details. I have asked her to make me one in blues and greens. £20.

dementedma Sun 16-Oct-16 20:10:33

Grrrrrrrrrr how can I diet when dd has just baked the most luscious smelling cake and the whole house is redolent with freshly baked cake smells....
