Hi

Hope you don't mind but thought I would start a new thread.

Tess the flowers sound great.That was very nice of your Dads friend. I planted sweat peas in the spring and I have managed to have a constant supply in my lounge since June.

Tess how is Claire?

Linda how are you? How is your Mum? How did your last CBT session go?

Lin are you going to join us here? Sorry to hear you didn't manage to get out shopping.

Tomorrow we take Alison to Birmingham. So today I plan to get all her washing done. Not really feeling up to it as these last few days all I have wanted to do is sleep.

Wishing you all a good weekend.

Lizzy

    Hi Lizzy!

    Good idea to start a new thread there was a lot of messages on that one.

    Its awful when you feel so tired. Thats how I am feeling at the moment thnk with everything going on with funeral etc. Woke up this morning feeling really tired and throat still no better. Hope it is going to be ok for Funeral on Friday and Claire's party on Saturday. Think it could even be due to my acid reflux as my throat went like this once before. Started taking my tablets to see if they help.

    Going to send you a private message shortly. I hope you get things sorted out for Alison in Birmingham. It is a worry until they are settled for you. I still worry about Chris now although I have seen where he is living and it is lovely. It is because it is a strange town to us.

    Linda I hope you are ok today. How is your mum now has she put some weight on?

    Claire is doing ok at the moment. Pneumonia has cleared and she only has a week and half before she can have ther NGT Tube out and have soft foods. She is getting fed up with it now and I told her to just last out for the final bit. She has put some weight CT scan but she only had one a month ago and is worried about to much radiation. She is going to find out if it is really necessary so soon after the last one.

    Take care.

    Hi everyone,

    Yes, Lizzy it`s a good idea to start a new thread, we had been using the old one for quite some time. Hope Alison gets sorted out, know what you mean about only making two journeys, driving really tires me out!

    Tess, its good you were able to enjoy your wedding aniversary and am so glad claire seems to be on the right road at last. There must be so much to do at the moment, but at least you now have your other brothers and sisters to support you.

    Well. decided I would try to be positive at the last session of the CBT, in case she extended it again! It soon became quite obvious that she hadn`t really taken on board half of what I`d told her and seemed to think she had said things which I`m sure she hadn`t! I know I have bad days with fibrofog but mostly she just read out of a booklet she had given me. Well, at least I tried it, but I think next time I see GP I will mention that it wasn`t quite what I expected and some of the things she suggested were way out of our budget. Just so he knows if he refers someone else.

    Well Have finally sorted out the things Ann wanted to leave here but wanted to keep and they are now all in one cupboard, also sorted out my craft stuff, so hope to get back into some of that soon. Chris is off work for 2 weeks soon and is going to help me get his room sorted and store what he wants in the spare room. Wow! Put like that it sounds as if I might nearly be there!

    Well have a nice weekend,

    Linda

    Hi Linda

    Good to hear from you again. Will be really good for you to finally get everything sorted with the help of your son Chris. Bet Ann has settled in really well now. Does it still seem strange not having her around.

    Like you said about the CBT course you gave it a try but half the time they don't listen to us. It is a good idea to tell yr doctor so other people know what it is like.

    My throat is still not very good today but slowly improving. i have a blood test tomorrow at 10.30 and Claie going to take me. We are then goling looking for some material to go around her disco booth for her party on Saturday.

    Well Stewart on his last night! So pleased that shift is over at least I was able to give my voice a rest lol.

    Hi Tess and Linda,

    Well Alison is now in her new home for the year. We got stuck in a traffic jam on the way and just managed to collect the keys before the office closed.

    Alisons room is small, but I'm sure that when the lads arrive at the end of Sept. she will be fine.

    Linda I bet you feel more relaxed now that you have managed to get the house straight. I do hate it when so called specialists read out of books at you. My rheumi use to make a diagnosis and then give me a booklet and say all your answers will be in here, not once did she discuss or explain my conditions. How is your mum?

    Tess I do hope your week won't be too upsetting for you.It took me months to sort my Grannies bungalow.

    Wishing you a good week.

    Hi Linnor,

    Can I ask what the new tablets are that you are not taking? I couldn't take Amitriptyline.

    Wish you all the best at your blood appt. I hope its an early appt. for you.

    I spoke to Alison last night and she sounded like she had had a good day. The shower set the smoke alarm off, it was very very loud. that will be fun if it goes off every time they shower. :lol:

    Tess how are the party plans going?

    Linda hope all is well with you.

    Wishing you all a good day.

    Hi everyoe,

    Linnor, I have Tramadol for pain, but only for a very short time when its really not bearable, because it just knocks me out, and has other not very nice side effects. Otherwise I just have amitrityline, to help with pain and sleep pattern. To be honest its the constant fatigue that bothers me the most.

    Hope alison, settles down well, Lizzy, I`m sure she will enjoy herself when she gets into the swing of things!

    Tess, I hope your coping ok with sorting things out from Dad`s flat and with your daughter`s party. Try not to overdo things, I`m a fine one to talk, but I have suffered the consequences of doing to much myself!

    Been to Mum`s today and she seems ok, a bit strange, in a way I haven`t seen before. All the staff seemed to think we had been on holiday and not sent her a card, she`s been watching for the post every day!!! Now both are arms are out of plaster/sling she seems aware that she can do more for herself, but is going back a long time and trying to do things she hasn`t done for ages. So am hoping all will settle soon so we can get back to normal too.

    Have a good evening all,

    Linda

    Hi Linda, Lizy & Linnor

    Linda I hope your mum gets on alright. Lizzy your poor daughter with the smoke alarm going off when she has a shower lol.

    Linnor I hope your blood appointment goes ok.

    Well got the funeral tomorrow at one o clock. Dad was in the D Day landings during the war. He was a member of the British Legion. They rang the other day and had asked if there was anything they could do. They are going to come with their flag and walk in front of funeral car just out onto the main road. When we get to the crematorium they are going to do a Guard of honour. Going into Crematorium going to play the revel and the last post on going out. We are having the white cliffs of dover played also on going in and We will meet again on going out. We are also having a union jack over his coffin with his war medals on top with his blazer with his badge on.

    Going to be a really strange day with everything going to do with my brother taking his money. There are a lot of angry grandchildren as well as adults. My brother is going to the funeral but not to the funeral tea as he will not be welcome.

    We are getting all sorted for Claire's party the day after and will need some like that to make us all feel happier. Got both Chris and Andrew home this weekend and Andrew's financee Zoe. Will be good to see them both.

    Well going now as hoping for an early night. I have had lots of aches and pains more especially early in the morning so should think will be up really early tomorrow.

    Take care everyone and talk soon.

    Good Morning Everyone,

    Tess I hope you managed to get some sleep last night. Wishing you all the best for today. The funneral sounds really nice.

    Tess have a good weekend and hope the party goes well.

    Linda how are you? How is Ray? I hope your mum is ok.

    Linnor I wish you all the best at your ENT appt. Is paradise park a theme park?

    Alison is coming home tonight and off to her boyfriends tomorrow. She seems to be a little happier and has managed to sort a lot of things with her landlord, she hasn't backed down as she is paying £70 plus bills a week for a room that only has room for a bed, wardrobe and a set of draws and about a foot round the bed.

    Alan has an interview this morning it will be the second one for this company so I am praying that he gets this job. Money is now begining to get really tight our savings are almost all gone.

    Take care.

    Lizzy

    Hi Lizy

    No no a very good nigh sleep and have been up since 5 lol. Has been so long waiing for the funeral. Just hope the sun comes out. It is out here at the moment but weather gave some showers.

    I really do hope that this is the right job for Alan and with second interview really do need to keep my fingers crossed. I do hope it all works out for you all.

    Thats a lot of money Alison having to pay for a small box room. They always charge so much money. It is good she is getting settled and is home for the weekend.

    Have to go now. Chris has left his shirt for me to iron. Was in bed when he got home last night.

    Take care everyone! Linda and Linnor hope you are both doing ok!

    Hi, everyone,

    Tess, be thinking of you today, what the British Legion are doing sounds lovely. They really are a wonderfull organisation, we have had lots of support from them during the years since Ray has been disabled. I hope your brother realises now what he has done and all the upset he has caused, not just to his siblings, but the grandchildren as well.

    Lizzy I do hope the second interview is good for Alan, I know what its like to watch your savings disappear and worry about what will happen next, especially when you have dependant children.

    Well, just got to put some shelves up (well chris has!) for his DVD`s and Games and get his books and things out of the boxes they have been in for ages cause of lack of storage space and then sort what`s left in his room. I don`t think I`ve ever got so close to having my home sorted how I want and to feel that with a good routine I will be able to manage it. It`s been a dream almost for so long, I hardly dare write about it never mind talk about it in case I put a jinx on it! lol

    Linnor, I hope your app went well and you are doing ok today

    Hi Everyone!

    Linda the funeral was a lovely tribute to my Dad! All went well and was really lovely of the British Legion to to the Guard of Honour. Was a difficult day but on the other hand a day Dad would have be proud of us for organising especially under the difficult circumstances with my brother.

    He was at the funeral and made his own way there. He didn't sit with us in the front row and was advised not to come to the funeral tea. There would be too many members of the family annoyed with him! The last thing we wanted was any trouble.

    Got Claire's party tonight so should lift all our spirts tonight! Probably what we need after all the things going on this last month. Its really good your house is more manageable for you now.

    Lizzy hope Alan's interview went ok and you get some good news!

    Linnor hope you are ok and your appt went alright.

    Tess

    Linda how are you?

    Linnor hope all went well with your appt. yesterday?

    I am begining to think that the Vit D is actually helping. My muscle pain seems to be much less. :lol: Back to the doctors on Tuesday.

    Alan should hear about his interview next week.

    Take care.

    Lizzy
