So done with today. Too overwhelmed at the moment and hubby won't be home for who knows how long. 2 kids won't stop screaming (one screams then the other does it for fun it feels like) and the 3rd kid won't stop shouting "I don't know!" when asked a question about a book he supposedly read for school. I can't do the homework for you kid, sorry. Then there's my son's anxiety med fiasco. I'll save that for another post :/

*crawls into her fort to hide from it all*

I hope you get decent rest Annie.
And I hope everyone else is doing alright too. *offers hugs to all*

It's sort of weird to me how important RYL has been as far as affect on my life because I haven't been active on here in a long time.

But I met my (now ex)partner here, who introduced me to my best friend, who I love very much.

It just makes me think of the intricate webs that form between people through time and space and how if I never turned out the way I did and never ended up here both the worst and best parts of my life would never exist.

And then, inevitably, I get anxious about the opportunities I've missed and the possible paths my life didn't go down. I start to feel like it's too late to be everything I want to be. It's like going from the top to the bottom with a loud crash. I wish I could enjoy the adventure.

I have been enjoying coffee flavoured ice cream this week though, so that's something.

I'm sorry things are overwhelming right now Kathryn_Anna. That sounds unbelievably frustrating. Offering you hugs. Let us know if we can help somehow?

Kahlia1981 07-04-2016 08:47 AM

Annie: I'm so thankful QLD got rid of daylight savings because it really didn't work. Here's something for you. *gives huge mugs of coffee and a coffee maker* Feel free to share as you see fit. ;-)

Mark: The world really is odd.. And for you *gives a mug of English Breakfast tea*

Kat: Sorry that things have been overwhelming and that you are having problems family difficulties. I am really hoping that the problems with your son's medications are resolved quickly.

Drew: RYL really does have an important role in a lot of our lives and we don't realise it until something causes us to think of it. Just like you I get stuck/caught in the what-ifs, and thinking about opportunities missed, different life paths and the choices I made that I could have not made. But you still have time in this life to make choices of what you want to be or do. Also, what you've been through has made you who you are today.

My head's really not in a good place right now. My pain level is really high and I am badly wishing that I could just get up and start walking again. I've been able to self-propel around the unit including in and out of the unit onto the patio which is not easy. To get out I have to go backwards across the rails of the doors and, immediately, down a slope so you have to get your hands from the wheels to the brakes very quickly. Going in means going backwards up a slope, over the rails and not hitting the coffee table. Fun.

I hope you guy and gals are doing well :)

TY for the tea Kahlia :)

Today is not going to be a good one , I got up late as I am low , which means I won't be able to sleep well , so I get to mull that over all sodding day whilst feeling crap.

*hugs for Mark and Kahlia*
I'm in a weird space. Rather numB. Low-ish, but feel like nothing can touch me.
Last time I was like this, Aphazriel, one of the hallucinations, encouraged me to cut to come back to a feeling being. I'm on anti- psychotics so only quiet voices usually. But no visuals.
I could do an awful lot of damage to myself like this. But without the encouragement I probably won't. There's a want to, but I lack enough motivation, if that makes sense. I'm not sure I want to feel.
I miss my hallucinations. Is that weird?

Doikers 08-04-2016 01:13 PM

I don't know what to say Annie , but I don't think that it's weird *Offer Safe Hugs* ( Sorry if I got your name wrong )

Drewbles 08-04-2016 08:00 PM

I don't think you're weird.

Today I find out if I got into residence for college so that's kind of worrying/exciting. I'm a little worried that if I do get in I'll end up living with someone significantly younger than me and I envision that being a problem as far as maturity level and quiet studying goes.. But at least we'd only be sharing communal areas and not bedrooms. I guess this is what I get for putting college off by half a decade after high school :p

I'm sure I wont be the only one though. It'll be good for me to move away from where I am now regardless.

I woke up with a migraine that has since gotten better but I called into work because of it and I feel guilty.

I hope everyone is ok. Sending peace and more snowflakes again, as it's been snowing for a few days straight..

Doikers 09-04-2016 12:02 PM

Just wanted to wish you all a nice a weekend as it can be :)

Kahlia1981 09-04-2016 01:15 PM

I am really struggling with being in a wheelchair when I could walk perfectly fine only nine weeks ago. I know my appointment with the spinal surgeon is only next Friday but that might have to be delayed because my husband is worried he will go psychotic. If I trusted the local public ward that might be an easy situation which just cost me an appointment but I don't and, without private health insurance, we can't put him in the one private ward we have, so it'll all be up to me. Really don't need this now.

*disappears into her pillow fort to cry*

*Squishes Kahlia* *Offers Hot Chocolate with mini Marshmellows*

Kahlia1981 09-04-2016 04:05 PM

Thanks big brother. *takes hot chocolate, says thank you, and sits down next to Mark enjoying the hot chocolate with mini marshmallows*

I've finally transferred from the wheelchair to the bed and my legs and ankles are thankful but the leg pain, plus the shoulder pain, plus the back pain is more than I can handle.

CaiteeBug 09-04-2016 04:14 PM

*flops on couch* Last night's Paranormal investigation totally drained me

Doikers 09-04-2016 06:15 PM

Hi Caiteebug :) I'm Mark , I dunno if we've met??

CaiteeBug 10-04-2016 12:51 AM

Hi Mark, I'm Caitlyn. I don't think we met. Nice to meet you. I don't usually post on the forums much, more of a chatroom person.

Doikers 10-04-2016 01:46 AM

Hiya Caitlyn . I can get really freaked out by chat :/

Kathryn_Anna 12-04-2016 02:28 AM

I swear my body hates me. Twisted my ankle, hurt knee still and both are on the right side. 2 kids are sick and down for the count. Hubby has a cold but he acts like it's the end of the world. I get a cold and life goes on as normal because it has to.

Sorry you're in so much pain Kahlia. *offers safe gentle hugs*

Hey Caitlin. Nice to see you out of chat :) It's been awhile!

Any update on residence Drew? Sorry to hear you had a migraine. I know when hubby and I get them we need a dark quiet room to nap for a bit to feel remotely better. I can't imagine working with one. Hopefully it's gone now for you.

Eir 12-04-2016 03:11 AM

Migraines look horrible. My partner gets them, and if he doesn't treat them in time he will throw up for hours. Most definitely wouldn't work with one, but I can understand the feeling horrible about calling in sick. I always feel bad about it, and because of some people calling in regularly we now need to contact the manager for approval to be sick. It's horrible.
Every sore person can have a heat pack shaped like a smiley face from me, if they think it might help.
Odd thing for the day, my phone auto corrects ruinl to think. Which is good cos that's what I was writing.
Still in weird space.

Doikers 12-04-2016 11:12 AM

Hello :) How are you all today?

Kathryn_Anna 12-04-2016 12:17 PM

I didn't get enough sleep. 6am and the day is just starting. We'll see how it goes.

How are you Mark?
