I'm really glad I went. Was really good. Think I've finally come up with a cracking plan to get a few issues that have been bugging me (and I've been trying to ignore.) this week. Fingers crossed, I hope I can get it all done this week YAY!!!

Doikers 18-04-2010 06:29 PM

*Hugs Helen* That sounds really positive ! :)

*hugs everyone*
april sweetie, whats up?
i had a great time! we got ice cream and sunbathed, then we went to the lake thingy, and it has like a beach bit with sand and stuff, and we went paddling, and there are trees over it, and we were walking across them so we could sit and dangle our feet in the water, and i fell in :/ lol

nicole94 18-04-2010 07:29 PM

everyones arguing, i want to go to a meet in manchester, but my mum wont let me, she treats me like a child! urgh. it bugs me so much!

SoMuchMore 18-04-2010 07:57 PM

I am. A pathetic failure.

*hugs everyone*

Doikers 18-04-2010 08:02 PM

*Hugs Laura* You are not a failure mate , whats made you think that?

nicole94 18-04-2010 08:02 PM

you're not a failure sweetie *hugs*

SoMuchMore 18-04-2010 08:12 PM

But i am... b/c I cant seem to figure anything out and i'm not getting anything done that i am supposed to do. And all i can think about is SI and suicide but I don't want to SI anymore, its not like its actually going to help, but if i dont SI the suicide thoughts will get worse... and i need to talk to someone, but my friend is avoiding my message about needing to talk and i hardly talk to anyone else... and its pathetic b/c the only other person i can think to call is my ex and half of all this is his fault anyway...

nicole94 18-04-2010 08:17 PM

you're not, really hun.....x

jonikd 18-04-2010 08:51 PM

*pokes head out of dark hole*

Laura, honey, there is so much more than SI and SU, but when we're fighting urges the thoughts take over everything else. Keep fighting sweetheart, you've had a big weekend with your Relay for Life, and cos you're physically tired you will be emotionally tired as well ok? When I used to run marathons I would completely fall into a heap of tears at about the 32k mark, the body/mind relationship is a complicated one, be gentle with yourself. *hugs Laura tightly*

April, love, what's happening? Keep talking to us and we'll try and help drag you [gently] out of your hole and keep you safe. *clambers down to cuddle April*

Hugs Kahlia, I know you're still struggling, keep going hun. *hugs gently*

*hugs Mark, Lindsay, Oliver, Helen* hope you're all doing OK, and nice to see things are/were a little bit brighter for you Helen and Mark.

*jumps on Nicole* welcome back sweetheart, I missed you x

I'm undecided as to how I am today, have called in sick to work and will stay in bed for a while and see what the day brings.

Love and strength to you all

nicole94 18-04-2010 08:56 PM

*prizes JK off her and hugs* hey hun. thanks :D i missed you too xx

Doikers 18-04-2010 08:59 PM

*Hugs JK*

jonikd 18-04-2010 09:01 PM

lol, thanks Nicole, my first smile for the day
How you Mark? Things still OK for you tonight?

Scarletdreamer 18-04-2010 09:26 PM

Thanks for the cuddles, guys.

Just arguments between my husband and me. :(

I feel like ****. It feels like it's all my fault. :'(

I'll give more details in my r/v thread later... :crying:

MammaMia 18-04-2010 09:42 PM

*gives everyone lots of hugs*

Scarletdreamer 18-04-2010 10:41 PM

frenchhorn 18-04-2010 11:11 PM

* cuddles you all then collapses in a heap in a corner*
what a day, full of mixed emotions. this morning was ok, up nice and early to leave on coaches which were an hour late, then off to london, rehearsal in venue which went on for ages because of concert being so crap last night, then it was the concert, it was AMAZING such a buzz after, nailed my solos again and played them even better and loads of people including conductor and several staff from the course said how amazing and beautiful they were and that they sounded like a pro.
then off to train station with my parents, mum is trying hard with my transition, was going on about me being a grown up girl and then said oh sorry person, which is better than nothing, then train back to manchester, not so good, felt really ill, then got anxious and then felt really faint and dizzy and was burning up, but a kind guy took me to a cooler area and we just sat and chatted about music which was cool and now I'm back in halls, absolutly knackered from walking from the station with 4 big heavy rucksacks.
anyway I'm gonna shut up because i am going on about my boring lifewhich no body wants to hear about.

*goes off into a quiet corner to watch Dr Who*

Kahlia1981 18-04-2010 11:22 PM

*sneaks in, hugs all, and disappears back into the darkness*

MammaMia 18-04-2010 11:52 PM

*cuddles everybody* I hope we're all doing better soon.

I'm still happy but yet I feel so sad. Haha, how pathetic?

Kahlia1981 19-04-2010 12:03 AM

Hels: I'd probably say "conflicted" instead of "pathetic" ... but each to their own, right? :p *big hugs*

*hugs everyone*

MammaMia 19-04-2010 12:14 AM

True it is conflicting emotions.....

BAH >_> I'll hopefully feel better tomorrow? I hate this.

frenchhorn 19-04-2010 12:18 AM

*curls up in corner* feeling ill again

jonikd 19-04-2010 01:12 AM

*hugs all my lovely ward friends*

Oliver, you have the most non-boring life I know! Performing is something I wish I could do. Keep telling us all about your very impressive talent and knowledge on all things cultured.

April, Helen, Laura, Kahlia...my dear wee buddies. Look after yourselves, its tough going right now but we are all going to be wonderful successes real soon. *cuddles, and cuddles some more*

I'm OK, supposed to be at work but couldn't do it today. Went to my doctor and changed my meds round a bit. She checked out my wound from the weekend and she got all teary when she saw it. Wow, made me feel real stink, but she obviously cares and I've promised not to do it that bad again.

*makes a nice tuppa tea and sits quietly*

MammaMia 19-04-2010 01:51 AM

*cuddles everyone*

I really don't feel well, maybe I am coming down with something after all :(

jonikd 19-04-2010 10:11 AM

*checks in to see how Helen is feeling*

*leaves hugs*
*leaves rockmelon* nom nom nom

Kahlia1981 19-04-2010 10:38 AM

*huggles everyone*


jonikd 19-04-2010 10:48 AM

*cuddles Kahlia* what's up hun?
*waves at Oliver*

Doikers 19-04-2010 11:10 AM

*Hugs everyone* Good (Late) Morning , I've only just managed to get up , ugh , I feel so lazy , NO energy , NO Motivation , NO concentration.

OOOh JK I've never heard of rockmelon before , * grabs a slice *

Doikers 19-04-2010 11:19 AM

*hugs Oliver* I'm glad that you nailed your solo yet again , you must be so talented :)
and it's good that your mum is trying to accept who you are :)
I'm sorry you are feeling ill though :(

MammaMia 19-04-2010 01:04 PM

*cuddles everyone*

Still not feeling too good, am really dizzy >.> Trying to get ready for my boyfriend to pick me up, but don't even know when he's coming. Be good to get stuff sorted today though...

Scarletdreamer 19-04-2010 02:09 PM

*cuddles everyone*

Am feeling a bit better this morning but must admit that part of that is due to me having some Reese's Cups. :-X Chocolate + peanut butter = WIN... lol. But anyway...

Had therapy... it was okay, I guess. She couldn't believe all of the stuff that I have to do in the next 2 weeks. I can't even fully believe it myself. :-/ Saying it out loud made it sound like even MORE... :'(

*cuddles all* Sorry no individual replies... hope we all feel better soon. :'(

CrazyHayley 19-04-2010 04:01 PM

*rubs head from where she knocked herself out with saucepan 13pages and 4days ago*.....hmmm.....

Please forgive me but my brain is not up to going through all of what has gone on in the past few days, so no individual replies. Sorry I've avoided here - I couldn't even cope with this as a form of socialising. You have all been in my thoughts and prayers though. My PMDD is starting to fade away and in just a few days I'll be able to enjoy my week of sanity and be able to be upbeat and supportive again...til next time. Its so draining, apparently I was the worst I've been yet and I thought I was coping quite well, I was completely oblivious to the fact that I was mega moody, a bitch and a hermit! Whoops.

Anyhoo, I'm tired and drained as had busy family day yesterday, so not sure how much I'll be on here and how much I'll be napping. But just wanted to let you know that I'm ok and around and giving you all lots of gentle hugs!

*group huggles fellow inmates!!!!!*

frenchhorn 19-04-2010 04:02 PM

ewww, chocolate and peanut butter sounds horrible!! although i did have jam and peanut butter sandwich when I was in America visiting my cousins and I liked it, but I was about 8.
*cuddles April* you will get through the next week, just take it one thing at a time and try not to panic.

back at uni today, keep having random periods where I feel really ill, was in a good mood but now got a decision to make, I know what I want to do, but its not that bloody simple, wish it was. severe chest and back pain and got to walk to supermarkt to get food and dont feel well, but I'll look weak and pathetic if I don't go.

Scarletdreamer 19-04-2010 04:37 PM

*cuddles Hayley & Oliver* I'm sorry that you two aren't feeling the best... Hayley, good to see you back around!! I've missed having a fellow WoW-player to chat with... who actually understands what I'm talking about. ;) Get the rest that you need and catch up when/if you can... don't worry about it if you can't. *more cuddles* It's funny, isn't it, how we don't notice how awful we are until someone points it out? (although I'm sure you weren't THAT bad...)

*more cuddles for Oliver too* I'm sorry that you feel ill... why would you look weak/pathetic if you didn't go to the grocery store? *is confused* Congrats though, on the wonderful performances - you sound absolutely brilliant!! :D And we love hearing about each other's accomplishments, so please don't feel badly about posting yours. :)

You don't have Reese's stuff over in the UK? *gasp* Or the ice cream that's vanilla with chocolate peanut butter cups? :-O I don't know if I could survive over there!! lol... just kidding. But really, chocolate & pb is amazing. And pb&j sandwiches aren't an "in" thing in the UK either? Geez, we Americans must seem awfully odd!! :P

Hels, JK, Kahlia, Crimson, Laura, Mark *cuddles lots and lots* How are you all doing?

Just got back from the booksale (remember, the one I was telling you about last week? where it's cheap and lovely?). I spent ~$30 on books, but I got two bags full instead of your "average" TWO BOOKS from a place like Barnes & Noble or Borders. So yeh... am happy. It is mostly light reading stuff, but I also got a book of essays by the author of The Bridges of Madison County (dunno if you've heard of him, but he's pretty well known to the scholarly types, at least by name). Anyway... I'm happy with my purchases and plan to go back (GASP!!!)... hopefully not spend quite as much though. :-/

We decided to do the refer-a-friend account thing on WoW... so we get a toon on the RAF account to level 60, then she can grant 30 levels (total) to whichever toons I pick on my normal account. :D Plus, I get an awesome "zhevra" (basically a unicorn/zebra cross) for my main toon, which is awesome. Hehe. My first RAF toon, a priest, is already level... umm... 23? I think, and we just started yesterday. Leveling up with my mage right now (who just dinged level 29). Woohoo. :D I'm loving it... although it basically means running through dungeons again and again and again. BUT - I'll stop waffling about WoW. Soz to those who don't play or understand or care about video games. :o

*cuddles all some more*

Kahlia1981 19-04-2010 04:48 PM

*huggles everybody*

So damn tired. It's 1:42 am and I can't sleep. Our downstairs neighbours are playing music and talking so load that I'm sitting here and I could probably transpose what they are saying .... My Dragon program could probably pick it up quite clearly. And with what they are talking about they really wouldn't like that.

Oliver: Your talking about your concerts makes me want to pick up my flute again. I loved travelling with all our Orchestras, performing in shows for a huge variety of groups and, of course, competing when I could. I really hate the fact that I may never play again due to one of the medications I was put on in the past. *sigh* Sorry, you don't need to hear my woes. I hope you start to feel better soon.

Sorry guys. I'm really not feeling all that well this morning/tonight/whatever you want to call it, and am not really up to individual replies. If you've ever heard that saying If you get to the end of your rope tie a big knot and hang on ... then I'm gripping that knot so tight that I'm getting blisters.

Sometimes all you can ask for is for the pain to stop and everything to just end...

Scarletdreamer 19-04-2010 04:50 PM

*hugs Kahlia* Keep on holding on... never heard that saying before but it works for me. :) You'll make it... we all will - but I do understand what you mean. Wish I could do something that could help you. :( *cuddles*

Just updated r/v thread with what happened over the past while... :-/

MammaMia 19-04-2010 05:53 PM

*cuddles everyone and then hides*

PoisonedApple 19-04-2010 06:36 PM

Sorry for no individual replies but my eyes are bothering me a bit this morning so I thought it best not to read through all 5 pages I since I was last on (hoping to stave off a migraine)...

Yesterday sucked... The library didn't send me a notice to renew my books like they usually do then sent me an overdue notice 5 days after they got over due so now I owe 1.25$ each for 3 books... I'm gonna talk to them about that this afternoon because if I had been sent my renewal notice (like every other time I've checked out a book in the last year) I would have renewed it online like I usually do. And I found out that J said something racist referring to the president while talking to my 7 yr old 1/2 Thai daughter yesterday... *points to self* NOT HAPPY *stops pointing* I explained to her after I found out and in private why not to say it and what it means and such and told her if anything like that is said again no matter what word is used or what race it's about to tell D (I work he doesn't) so we know - in case my sister in law isn't there next time- and told D about it. We don't let family talk like that around us (let alone our kids... G is oldest at 7.5) so we won't be having a friend do so either. D let M know if J does so around him he'll just haul off and slap her and that that will not be tolerated at our place and even though M and V were both there when it happened when he told M anything racist that comes out of her mouth is unacceptable M goes "why?what did she say?" and then acted like saying "don't tell anyone but I don't think a n****r should be president" was acceptable to say to a 7 yr old child... she really didn't see how that was a problem. I know people can get blinded by friendship and want so much for someone to be a good person they become ignorant of their wrong doings but that's a bit too much for me. If I catch her say it myself I'm gonna tell her the baby can stay until she has her own place and a way to take care of her but J is gone. I won't put an infant on the street but I have no problem putting it's mother there in certain circumstances.

Today went from super shitty to managable or even good. This morning I couldn't find my wallet (with my bus pass and my tokens in it, thus no way to get to work without it... so I thought I was going to have to call in and not show up.) but then I found it in my mother in laws car and she gave me a ride to work. And here at work a coworker that home schooled her little one for kindergarten this school year was giving away the old books.... my 3 yr old really wants to learn and do school work with her older sister but since she isn't old enough to be enrolled for kindergarten they won't let me enroll her or use G's extra allotment money for kindergarten books for the younger 2 *pouts and frowns at the fighting that caused* but since T was giving away her old ones I grabbed em and now my younger 2 can do school too (they're 3 and 5) so that's picked up my day a bit. My work is about caught up and it's the beginning of admin assistant week in the office so there were bagels brought in for us this morning. *yay* and after work I'm hitting the gym and then the library to drop off my "overdue" books and pick up one I had on hold... (food's in the crock pot so I don't need to be home for people to eat dinner). Today could be a good day after all.

*huggles everyone hiding around the ward*
So how's everyone else doing?
