Hi All,

Would just like to share with you that i am having a good day apart from being at a funeral this morning! sad

My aches and pains have subsided, so it just goes to show that rest works smile and staying away from the Nintendo Wii :P :lol:

I could have slept on this morning, mind you! :zzz:

It's days like this when i feel i could be at work and i feel guilty :grrr: and sometimes when i feel good i do lots of housework but not today, i want to be fit for tomorrow. :diva:

I am going away tomorrow, overnite with the girls (all nurses :nursesmile so may not be feeling great after that but there's one sure thing, i won't have a hangover :ale:

Hope you are all well.

    Hi Teedie

    Glad you are well apart from the funeral.

    Rest does work when you can do it, its making time for it thats the problem! :roll:

    It is the chicken and the egg scenario, you feel well enough to work cos you are rested but if you did work when you felt well it would make you ill

    Damned if you do and damned if you don't... :weird:

    We are on Chippy for tea cos I am tired :wink:

    Have a lovely weekend and :bleep: to the pacing!! :twisted:

    Hi there Teedie

    Have a great weekend with the girls!! :diva:

    Yes, resting up sure does work and really is the only answer, but it's so boooring sad We all have so much we want to do and can't damn well do it. :wah: )

    But, as I am always saying - we just plod on.

    And please don't feel guilty about not working. I had to pop into my office yesterday to see a colleague and after an hour of phones ringing, residents popping in and out wanting things (how dare they!) and 101 other things going on I soon realised that there was no way I could do my old job - my brain was totally frazzled and I felt really poorly - still do.

    Just about managed to drive home. So that says it all really .......... sad

    Take care and have lots of fun

    Oh boy! School hols! sad :weird:

    My sympathies really do go out to you guys with children - it really does make our condition so much more difficult to cope with.

    My daughter was only four when I had ME for the first time and as she was an only child she nearly always had a friend or two round to play.

    I became known as the 'cross' mummy I discovered later, and as my daughter grew older I then became the mummy all her friends found 'scary'. :shock:

    So guys, I know it's really, really hard at times but try to keep your patience and good humour with your children even if they are driving you round the proverbial bend! I obviously failed miserably as a mum during those years and I still feel really guilty about it now. sad It was mainly the noise I just couldn't cope with ........

    ME is hard enough to cope with on your own without having to consider others as well ....... :cry:

    It's the noise i can't cope with either, no-one understands that part of it, i've tolerated them for 2 hours now, can't take it any more :evil:

    My lights are shaking on the ceiling :wah: I'll need to get them to leave - they're leaving now that's my daughter crying now. :cry:

    My head is thumping - i know i spoke too soon :grrr:

    I know what you mean Katie, i have lost my patience and sometimes i feel bad sometimes i lose it. :cry:

    I am absolutely shattered now, shoulders and arms are aching. sad

    I'm waiting for hubby to come home from work and i am escaping to Asda for some me time.

    Hi Teedie You break up early in Scotland dont you? Mine doesnt break up until 18th July and I have 2 weeks booked off with her. How old are your youngest? My daughter is 13 so she is pretty much self sufficient. It is easier when she has friends round as she has a converted attic that they can retire too. :lol:

    MSN and DVDs are great, or she will go out to Hollingworth Lake which is a local beauty spot where it takes an hour to walk round. I give her money for an ice cream and her and her mates are gone for ages :ok: (It is a safe area, I am not that desparate for a rest that I would put her in danger!! :? )

    Katie I am sure you were not a failure as a mum, children adapt and love you anyway. You are looking back with guilt glasses on! Try some rose tinted ones and give yourself a break :cheerup: Your sense of humour prevails on here and I'm sure it did when your daughter was young. And as has been said before, here endeth the lesson :nahnah:

    Hi Dale, I'm hearing you in stereo today :lol:

    Tell me, what is a goo weekend? it sounds fun :lol: My boys used to love messing about with goo, it was a sort of greeny slimy plasticine that stuck to the walls when you threw it. :shock:

    I wish I was back in Basingstoke, but I am so glad to be with you lot again.

    Hi All,

    Back from my travels, feeling a little sore but nothing major but tomorrow may be worse, who knows. :evil:

    I had a nice time and a good chance to chill out, I had about 5 drinks throughout the day and felt quite normal :D but had problems sleeping so i'm rather tired. :zzz:

    Katie - hears hoping i am able to take a few drinks again! :bubbly:

    Alicia, Dale meant "good" weekend but that "goo" was good fun too! :wink:

    I'm glad you had a nice break Alicia smile

    Dale, my children are 18, 9 and 6, :roll: so still have to entertain the wee ones. smile Yes, we finish early in Scotland and go back to school middle of August.

    13 is not a bad age but wait another couple of years and she'll be wanting to go further afield and the attitude will start, :x Good luck
