What homework have you got by 'eck?


Mine was to make a list of steps to tidying up my flat

I have to do some thing based on the wizard of oz, and then come up with a scale of distress for the trauma work we are about to do. I have started thinking about it but that is making my head think about the trauma stuff.
Bear, I bought a really cheap 'to-do' book from Wilkinson's. It helps to break things down, has space for working out timings of your day ( including planning breaks) and space to doodle.
Mr by eck has been asked if he would help his therapist write up his case for a medical journal because the progress he has made has never been noted before. I am so so proud of him.

Fabulous news


I may go and see if I can find that book - I'm lacking motivation to tackle stuff  though . Maybe I need you guys to yell "wake up Bear" if I haven't checked in by 9am each morning

Maybe you could come up with 2 small jobs, 1 medium sized job ( taking 20-30 minutes) and a big job each day ( over 45 minutes) and aim to tick off 2 things so even if it's a bad day you might be able to get something done. For example, on a bad dat I might aim to take the post out of the envelopes and stick the unwanted bits in recycling, or gather up the towels and pit them through the wash.

That sounds like a good idea. I'm making a list of tasks but I'll organise them by sizes too so I can do what you suggest

Proud of you all
Brilliant news about Mr By Eck

Gym was OK I was brave

Solbtitchysis is ok, she was very high on morphine though

I had a chat with MummySOLB about my sexuality on the way home. She's known for a while but we've never discussed it before. Was kind of nice to clear the air

Arghhh really really horrible nightmares that I couldn't wake up from. I'm trying to wake myself up enough that I don't go back to sleep. *does nekid starjumps*

Did you manage to go back to sleep
09/11/2012 at 08:11

Yes but the nightmares came back so I gave up and took my duvet into the other room instead. Might try again now it's light I feel unreasonably tired

*whispers, so not to wake SOLB*
I'm feeling just a little more normal, more strong, today. Little by little, moving on
The only weird thing is that I have woken up with that feeling that you get after you've been crying. I mean, like really crying, so hard you're left exhausted and slightly snotty? (Which to be fair, is what was happening last week)
But there were no tears last night, so maybe I dreamt it?!

*gives Frodo a sleepy cuddle* that is a bit odd. I'm pleased you are feeling a little stronger darling, please keep being kind to yourself a little longer though.

Bounces in! I've just done a school assembly on remembrance. Woo-hoo. 100 kids aged 5-7. Now I'm making gingerbread people with Anastasia. I have had a busy day and I got really worried about it but I have survived.

Sorry to hear you had nightmares SOLB, well done on the chat with SOLBmum.


Glad you're feeling stronger Frodo


Great stuff by 'eck


I'm getting frustrated because the drug change hasn't got through to me GP yet so I can't start the new pill dose.  I did get mummyBear off to her exercise class though

Drs can take ages to sort out prescription updates. Sometimes they will fax it thru if you ask really nicely
09/11/2012 at 22:01

I did ask but they said they used a linked system so it should go through pretty much immediately


I guess I just get on with the other stuff regardless

09/11/2012 at 22:03
Ha! The infamous nhs computer systems
09/11/2012 at 22:11
How is Tue other stuff going bear?
09/11/2012 at 22:39

i'm doing small stuff BE, and some big stuff. Found some interesting volunteer bits as well. Need to get properly on top of it though

How is everyone doing today? I''ve been quite busy with cooking and shopping. Moo has been grumpy so he might be getting poorly again. Time to get Christmas organised in case it's another bad year
