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

2034 - that's less than two hours time so that's not too bad!!!

Thanks Frodo.  I certainly do have to make keeping going at work the No 1 priority.  I do know that if I can get to point where I'm able to enjoy things outside of work more though - that it can make keeping going at work a bit easier.  The crucial thing is for me not to get more depressed when things don't work out.  Glad you're doing better now.

As someone who ended up going off work (and still off) I'd definitely try sticking with work as long as possible; being off in a way makes depression worse.  Not that I could stomach work at the time but I'm wishing there was some less stressful option - the same now really

Yes, I would agree.  I'm sure I would be worse if I didn't have work to go to.  All of this means I should actually good about being able to go to work tomorrow.  Easier said than done - but it is vital for me to cope as best I can whilst I'm there.  It must be difficult for you once you're off to make it back - assuming the job's still open - or finding work again if not.

Yes that's pretty much the stage I'm at now - need to go back but don't want to start at the stressy level of the full job

Hope you make it back to work Ok then.

I'm waiting for a volunteer agency to contact me - think I'll chase them up this week.

Urghhh I have loads to do today and not enough time to do it *bounces out of bed* had better get on with it then. Coffee anyone?

Is it really morning? Moo thinks morning starts at 6am and needs to be welcomed with the cry "mummy,mummy,mummy,mummy..........." until someone appears and gets him up. Mr by eck thinks I need to start planning on getting up at 6am so he doesn't wake little miss. Erm, that'll mean 9:30 bed for me and him being super quiet coming to bed.

Sorry to hear that Bricki. My day starts to get a bit chaotic in 15 minutes. Oh well, I'll he walking about 4 miles...

Sorry to hear about the back Bricki


In good news my baking book has arrived, plus I've managed to book to teach anatomy next week


Just to make things tough it's a revision session which means I could get asked about anything they've done so far.  One of my biggest source of wibbles is not knowing an answer, so this is going to be a challenge to me, but it'll be great to get back to having a purpose and feel like I'm doing something useful.


No opening pressies until tomorrow SOLB

Is this it by 'eck?

Yes. I didn't sit in A&E but so much of it is sadly true.
