I wanted a place where we could get advice and support.

Erm, a little. Moo had a short nap but woke up a few minutes ago needing mummy cuddles. We are about to watch the grand prix together
Miss by eck is pre-puberty so has the mood swings etc but none of the other signs. Oh joy!

Ahhh sit down by eck, I'll make it *wraps by eck up in a blanket*

Arggghhhhhh! Miss by eck woke her brother when she was doing her best elephantii impression. Now he is crying/cross and she is cross because she can't sleep.
I am trying to write birthday cards and letters of condolence. Daddy by eck is planning 3 funerals at the moment

Oooh bless you, pandemonium at by eck towers doesn't sound like much fun, it'll pass though honey and calm will be restored ... til the morning anyway

I am trying to decide whether to take moo back to the drs. The cough is still bad, to the point that he now coughs until he vomits
Solb, how are you feeling now?

Poor little man he's had such a rough ride lately. 

I'm OK, the cold like symptoms are much better but I've ben throwing up a bit too. Mostly just tired now, hopefully I'll be better by morning.

Sadly Solb, this is 'winter normal' for moo. Last winter he had 6 courses of antibiotics and spent over a month in hospital in total.

I'm glad you have support, I know it's a stupid thing to say but I can't help but wish you didn't all have to go through it

Thanks hun. I did my 3 things today
25/11/2012 at 21:44

I'm afraid I didn't do any  of mine today. 

I'm busy wondering about therapy tomorrow, I want to go to discuss my discharge plan but I don't want to give Vicky my bug especaially as I'm not sure if she has a weakened immune system (she's well beyond retirement age but continues to work as she feels it's her calling - I wouldn't disagree, what she has done for me is just incredible!) 

Will see how things look in the morning 

25/11/2012 at 21:47
Give her the option. Has she said she has a weakened immune system?
25/11/2012 at 21:49

No but she has mentioned avoiding catching stuff before, not sure if it's general, in relation to her or even someone she lives with ... I'll email her in the morning but not sure if she'll get it cos I'm usually the first patient she sees and I live 40 minutes away.

She sounds amazing. You've really worked hard together.
25/11/2012 at 22:08

It's her though, she's right about it being a calling. It's more than just intelligence and being good at her job, though she is. She is the only person I've ever come across in mental health that retains her compassion and empathy. She has a genuine respect and understanding for her patients that I've never seen before. 

I'm not explaining it very well

I know what you mean because Alice is the same. She is an RMN by day but does accouple of CBT patients privately. She knows when to push me and when I need time to deal with something.
Andrew's CBT person does something in mental health and is also excellent, tho he would drive me potty. We each have our own needs. I did see one guy who was horrendous. I just sat on the sofa and nodded cos he kept talking and his body language made me feel on edge and I didn't think he listened to me. Alice lets me sit in silence if I need to.

I met one lady in the CMHT who wouldn't let me talk about the voices, she felt it would validate the experience if she listened to me talk. It was horrific I felt really persecuted and scared and felt like there was no where to turn

Erm........ But it's part of you and how you deal with things. Would she tell someone she wouldn't listen to them when they were crying, or self harming?
