    I feel you ChloJakes. Work is doing my nut in too becuae of certain issues ongoing and then having to clear up people mistskes. Grrrr.

    What a nightmare about your washing machine, can you cancel and order elsewhere?

    Why are your family getting involved with you getting a kitty. It's up to you surely and it will be your responsibility.

    On the plus side its past midday on humpday so thats atleast a small bonus.

    Yeaaaah I'm not clearing up anybody else's mess thank goodness. It's just the company organisation I'm having a bit of an issue with!

    Washing machine wise - I bought an older house I'm doing up. I'm discovering after my washing machine packed in, I don't think it's a normal '3 pin socket plug in' so Argos don't wanna deal with it!

    The kitty has just sent my mum bonkers haha. They already have a cat (he's technically the family cat). The one I'm getting is an Asian, house cat. She's basically have a winge saying I won't have time and he'll get lonely. But they sleep for hours a day and I'll entertain before I go to work and when I get home!

    I know, I'll be running out of here at 6 towards the wine haha! Xx

    Strange its not a normal 3 pin plug... maybe look at getting an adaptor to save having to get a new socket/different washing machine.

    We have 2 cats.. i want a dog but the wife won that battle. Cats are lazy as hell and they do sleep soooo much. Our cats don't even play.. they are the massive assholes. You can get the cat little boxes that semi clean themselfs so it won't be a massive issue you being out at work. Most people have to work and keep pets that are happy.

    I finish at 5 and heading for the beer and vodka. Lol

    So around 7 last night i got a call asking me to be on call during the night incase something went wrong. This normally involves absolutely no work and you get paid for it so was more than happy. Turns out to be one of the busiest nights so managed to get just over an hours sleep before my 4yo comes into my room pokes me a few times saying he felt sick.. starting to stir when i heard the retching and boom my face was plastered in acid vomit. Not only that but my mouth was slightly open.. you get the picture. Anyone that knows me will know that my gag reflex is outrageously strong and my nemesis is vomit. Instant scene from the Exorcist and i projectile vomit straight back at him covering him from head to toe.. INSTANT KARMA. As cleaned up now and bathed clean. Now i have to start work again with another 10 hour shift.

    Hope you lovely lot are all ok sending big hugs to anyone who needs them.

    So this week's been a bit pants for me. My counsellor had to cancel our appointment this week. And I really needed to see her. I've slipped back alot this week with binge drinking that stops my antidepressants from working so just kept getting down and lonely all the time. We started to work on my horrible past as a child and it's been really hard this
    week with really bad flash backs And I just needed to get it out my head and she helps me do this. Although hubby knows what happened I've never gone into detail. He would 100% be supportive and listen but I just can't get the words out I don't want him to pity me or have images in his head.
    So I've got till Tuesday to be able to talk about it all. Just hoping for a better weekend.

    Hope u all have a lovely weekend xxx

    I really, really hate menstrual pains. Last 36 hours = zero productivity despite popping ibuprofen and paracetamol like candy.

    My sincere sympathy for everyone else who are going through Shark Week agony.

    I'm feeling low.

    I feel stressed, disproportionally stressed. Yes we have the challenges of putting mother in law in a home, but this is worse for OH than me.

    I just feel overwhelmed with life at the moment. I know that sounds stupid, but is a like being in free fall, and your just waiting to hit the ground. My life feels out of my control. I have felt starving recently and I have eaten all sorts of rubbish, despite being desperate to lose weight, I'm gust not able to right now. I'm fact in struggling to feel like a person at all. The thing I find hard is not being in control of me. I know I am ( or should be) but right now it feels like I'm a passenger in my own life.

    I feel numb and lost and just can't see a way back to normality.

    You see it hits me like this, like a truck, just when you think your ok, just when things are going well, or at least only minor issues, then bang! All hell lets loose and your left floundering like a fish out of water, flapping on the lounge carpet.

    why can I not just be happy, thin and contented? Why must my head be my own worst enemie? Sabotaging my hopes of weight loss, of happiness.

    Sorry I should probably go I'm not being constructive of productive and my negativity might be bringing others down.

    Can I have a little rant please?

    I REALLY need to see my GP but today is the 9th (working) day in a row I've rung and having finally got through, have been told all the appointments are gone AGAIN.

    At least I have the weekend to simmer down. I nearly broke the phone in frustration this morning!

    Tazzy - without going into details, you sound like we share similar experiences. I have an absolutely fantastic counsellor who I've been seeing for the last four years. I get the same reaction if he has to cancel - it's like he's my life raft/security blanket/safety release valve. My OH knows I've been through a prolonged bad time from my early teens and never pushes, but I can't go into detail with him either. I hope you manage to get through til Tuesday okay.

    Salina - Ugh. Really hate period pains, too. Have you tried different painkillers?

    Fun Louise - Don't apologise for having a rant about how your feeling, the best thig to do if you are having a bad time and are feeling low and stressed is to let out all your frustrations don't keep them bottled up as this can make things worse.

    Losing weight, maintaing a deit and excercise regime is difficult at the best of times, but when under stress is near impossible so don't be hard on yourself, everyone has times when the feel they need to resort to rubbish food I've done it myself, my rubbish food saviour is kebab they make me feel happy!

    Dealing with elderly parents/inlaws is difficult especially when it gets to the time when they need to be put in a home and seeng a loved one struggle with this makes it even harder but it will get easier.

    Head issues are the worst and can be the most frustrating things and I know how you feel with this, I have just put out an advert on ebay for mine.

    Dont give up normality is just around the corner, if you feel the need to rant then go ahead, if you're not being constructive or productive then so what, to have a rant is a good thing.

    Hi guys,

    I'm sending virtualhugs for all of you who are going through hard times right now.

    I'm too in need of a rant because I'm going out of my mind with me teen girl. No matter what I do everything is wrong and I'm fed up of sorting problem after problrm at school, at home, at socialising. Do teens ever consider that we - parents - have a life as well? Well I know there's nothing what I can do besides what I already do, give 99% of myself and my time do bringing up this adorable and horrible creature, but sometimes I get exhausted. Ok I feel better now for letting this out, sorry guys.

    Depression sucks! I got myself into a state before, terrified that my children may inherit this ridiculous chemical imbalance that squishes every bit of joy you have in life. Naturally this kickstarted the anxiety and then a visit from my father in law just boomfed it up to the max.

    I know I haven't been myself lately, I've been shutting myself away again which I know I shouldn't do. I sleep in the afternoons as I just can't seem to stay awake for more than a few hours yet I can't sleep for more that a few at a time either. I try to stay awake but it doesn't work. I try to sleep for a reasonable amount of time but again it doesn't work. I need to book into see a Dr but having moved it will be a different one and that scares the crap out of me.

    Mr Cheeky Monkey, thanks for the reply.

    I am trying very hard and I'm still excersizing so that is helping.

    I spent 5 hours yesterday hand sewing name labels into mother inlaws clothing yesterday (underwear, towels, dressing gowns, nighties), but I still have tops, skirts, trousers and cardigans to do, oh and her coat. As she moves into the care home tomorrow, I have to do this today. It's not that I left things too late, but that the move is happening fairly quickly, and the name labels only arrived Friday.

    Im not sleeping well at present, but I'm hoping that if I can get to the end of the week things will get better, as we are away next week. Wales again, overlooking the sea, and it will be very good to unwind. Things have been very stressful recently for both OH and me and we really need the rest.

    Rosy, your half way there, you recognise the symptoms of needing help, and honestly that is half the battle.

    When you go to the Dr take a stress toy with you, something you can squeeze and fiddle with, to help you get through the visit. (A soft ball will do if you don't have a stress toy, or even 2 pairs of socks rolled up together). I hope things settle down for you soon.

    Aw, Lu - that's teenagers for you.

    One day, hopefully sooner rather than later, she'll grow out of it and become the same loving daughter she was before the teen demon took over.

    I did, but only when I found out my mum was ill. I'm so glad I came to my senses in time to look after her before she passed away. I'd have never forgiven myself if I hadn't.

    Back to your problem, though, hormones are awful. Just take a breath and tell yourself that it's not her, it's the hormones.

    Also, file under "future consideration" that if she ever goes on to hormonal contraception, get her to try several types, but I know there's one out there that gives you a period once a quarter. This would have been ideal for me as I finally twigged that it was the hormones giving me periods that turned me into a monster so I took my Pill for months without a break and turned back into a nice person!

    Ok so today's counselling session really opened up a huge can of worms and set me back soooooooo much. I've ended up giving in to the drink tonight despite my husband hating the fact that I am independent on drink at times to escape my head. Was a very thought session bringing up lots of childhood memories I've been burying for so many years. I know I'll come through the other side soon but at the moment I just need to escape my own mind block it out.
    I don't expect anything from this rant

    Tazzy, you do not need to apologise at all. It doesn't have to make sense to us, if it helps you even the smallest amount then that is what matters. I hope that things get better for you very soon x
