Why is it small things wind me up

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi all again....

i managed my aqua aerobics last night worked myself really hard to try and wear myself out and empty my head. Slept ok, only woke a couple of times. day at work was ok, still got slightly upset but carried on all day. Home and relaxing in front of the fire watching TV. Phone rang at 9pm, thought it might be my sister but one of these selling calls told her not interested and take me off their list and don't ring me again, she started trying to talk to me again so the phone went down. Now I am all wound up and crying yet again. Why does something so stupid as this wind me up. Apart from the support i have received from you all over the last few days I have been feeling very alone and deserted. I have not heard anything about my next appointment when I was told I would be contacted by end of this week, I've got this new medication which i am having doubts about as they seem very hard to come off even worse than cit. My head feels empty just won't concentrate on anything for long. Is it because it's the week end again. I'm meeting up with a friend on Sunday for a walk just got to get through saturday. sorry for the rant but I am totally fed up with everything.

hope everyone else has a good week end.

Tina xx

    Morning Tina,

    Rant, rant on, or share, either way we're here for you!

    Cold calling is being dealt with by the watchdog, but this has not come soon enough, in everyones opinion.

    One way people deal with them is by having a phone where the answer phones kicks in after a couple of rings and you can, at the same time, also hear who the caller is, that way you decide if you wish to talk to them!

    Don't worry about little things setting you off that will happen again, unfortunately, it is something we all try to deal. However, gotta say BIG UP Tina! For the aqua aerobics and be able to take yer mind off things, even for a short while, but it sounds like it helped getting a good nights sleep the other night. Made work a little more tolerable too.

    (Re the big up, we tend to listen to Lisa Tarbuck, Radio 2 on Saturday evenings, sorry, but hers funny).

    I had a wobble yesterday evening, just before going out felt queezy and shakey, managed to push on just, but it made our stroll to the store shorter than intended.

    Have house work, art work and ongoing research for a book to keep me out of trouble today, hopefully I shall manage it all and if I feel alright, may go out later. Weather down here is calm, but damp, grey and dull. Not to worry tring to sing along to sounds of the 60s on Radio 2 - I think I hear dogs howling! Strange!

    Enjoy today the best you can and that walk tomorrow.

    Sending positive thoughts to the windy North.

    Best Regards,

    David x

      Thanks David you always sound so upbeat and positive. I wish I could too. Good luck with your research for your book, that will take a lot of dedication.

      I'm lying in bed working up the enthusiasm for today. It's windy, raining but an invigorating day to go out somewhere instead of moping around the house. You have a good weekend and keep going on those wee trips out.

      Plucking up the courage to start my new medication tomorrow, keep putting that off too.

      Anyway better get up, put the loud music on and get motivated, maybe in a while....you take care.

    Hi Tina. Always sending you strength and positive vibes through these awful days! Catch .....................! x What you feel is "normal" we have been told time and time again.Yes, but we don't want to feel like this do we/. So what do we do? We cocoon ourselves. We have to allow ourselves to be cocooned. In time, OUR OWN time, we emerge from this cocoon, transformed into a new us or perhaps our old us, feeling excited about life once again and before not too long taking flight and flying again.We are transformed. You WILL get there Tina. We ALL get there my love. hugs x Something just came to mind re these blinking calls. I trust this will make you smile Tina and y'all reading this. When an Uncle of mine passed years ago, my Aunt started receiving abusive 'phone calls. One of my Cousins bought her a REFEREE'S whistle. Yes a ref's whistle. Now you imagine what happens to your tympani when it receives a blast down the phone from a ref's whistle!!! These abusive calls soon stopped. Now am not suggesting you buy a ref's whistle but food for thought perhaps? Hoping this brought a bit of laughter to you Tina xxxx Lots of cuddles and love coming your way xxxx
