I've found it to be true as well, make a wish, so much so that I think the doglet is a better judge of people than I am these days :shock: :shock: :shock:

hi to all

I'm totally housebound, and have been for a very long, long time. I feel extremely lonely alot of the time (shrug), even tho i have my girls and my other half. I just don't have anything to say. The Q how was ur day? Is always the same, i hurt had a couple falls, looked on line for a little while then had to lie down. I haven't got much variations to work with really. Always the same. Soz, oh woe is me is over not (typed that is). When i needed some help and support it was found here with lovely members and outstanding mods who do everything to make u feel welcome.

What i'm trying to say is, if its difficult socialising, try when something arises to go, unless in a whole flare. The trade off has to be worth it surely ? When at home and need a virtual hug, theres always some1 around that will try and life ur spirits

soz for the waffling, not my best time of day to fight against my fibro fog.

loads of soft hugs and i hope all is well in ur world/bubble

i hate going out and wont go viisit ohs family even as am conscious of my disablement now. it is worse as i have a driving phobia too so cant even sneak out soemtimes etihter.

on my cbt i have had to do facing my fears so gone out once or twice on a short drive up the road to a macd. when me and little lad were coming back on tuesday it was the warm day so i had windows down. still 4 layers for me scarf and hat but finally took my coat off. :lol:

i had a flashback and remembered what i use to feel like, i could not imagine ever having confidence to go out or do anything again. i remembered i use to drive everywhere without a 2nd thought as family 50 miles away, be a real go getter running a b&b wiht 6 bedrooms, realising i was pregnangy after we bought it, cooking breaky in between sneaking out the back to be sick :lol: :lol: , chaing those rooms on a daily basis, renovating, buying more properties. etc, etc,

i was a reall go getter. what a difference a few years can make, i don;t recognise that person at all now, a few weeks ago i was suicidal but it has given me a lglimmer of hope.

so i am realising that the cbt is working really well for me without me realising it when i am told to judge my fears all the time other thoughts are sneaking into my brain.

i too really love this site, have tried to push myself out soemtimes and get too distressed so a hapy balance is whats needed and a friendly word on here.

take care. :-) :-)

Oh poppet my heat goes out to you :blowkiss:

I have a huge history of depression and i normally lie on the boundary of depression alot of the time. I'm really glad that ur therapy is working and that u are stretching urself 2. Something to be definitely be proud of in my opinion.

I had my licence revolked when 'they' decided that numb feet aren't a good idea while driving. God no's where the DVLA's sense of humour went :lol:

As long as u are inching forward and not standing still thats definitely a show that u r doing something right

loads of soft :hugs: and a :woot:
