Seems like you are connected via the wires, network 2 should just mean which network you are connected through which I'm guess is the wires rather than wireless. You shouldn't be connected with two computers (unless you have more than one computer?). If you are still having problems I think the best thing is to try TalkTalk again and if they can't sort you out ask if an engineer can come and look at it.
How was everyone's weekend? It was grumpy city in our house They had the final board meeting about Mr TSTs wages on Friday and still we are waiting to be told what's going on. Am sure the HR guy is doing it out of spite as it highlighted he'd not been doing his job when Mr TST and his collegue refused to let the issue go. I know one more weekend after 4.5 years doesn't seem much, but we so need to draw a line under all this now as it's so stressful Will let you know when I hear anything.
Hope you are ok Trigger, thinking of you at this difficult time. And yep, reckon I must be a bit nuts! Making up for all the time I wasted drunk by cramming it all in now I reckon!
Your mind has a lot to process Sinbad and the only way to get through it is to let it do it I'm afraid. When I quit drugs and booze I went through the same thing and you just have to ride it out really. I still get it if I've been on a food binge for a bit and then come off it. Try doing a little exercise every day even if you don't feel like it, it will give you a boost and tire you out a bit which will help you sleep a bit better. You just need to let your body adapt at it's own pace to the new situation it's finding itself in and that will take time. If it's any comfort once the disturbed sleep phase is done you will sleep like a baby most of the time Perhaps see if you can find a local relaxation or meditation class as that may help you calm your mind, it's helped me a lot. It may not work for you, but you have nothing to lose from trying things. Try and eat as healthily as you can and drink lots of water too; if your body is well looked after than it's easier for your mind to try and sort things out. Keep plugging away, it may feel like you are in the middle of a maelstrom at the moment but you will come out the other side.
Still trying to get sorted with a pilates course The Wednesday one is full so I'm waiting to speak to the instructor who does the Tuesday one as that's not a total beginners one but should be suitable. Just means I miss my Tuesday meditation class and can't go back to boxing until July, but given I could hardly walk 3 miles on Wednesday maybe that's sensible! Eight weeks today until my sky dive!! Woo hoo!!
Have you been to your doctor and asked to be referred to counselling Sinbad? I think the only way you will deal with your past is to confront it with someone who can help you do that. Round here you can self refer to the mental health service, which is what I did and how I've got my counselling. I have to wait for it but just knowing help is around the corner helps.
Very well done on the PB at Milton Keynes AG, you should be very pleased with that even if it wasn't quite the result you wanted
Well done on not having a drink today Sinbad. Just take it a day at a time, or an hour at a time if needed and slowly but surely you will learn to do without. It's not easy and takes a lot of work but I think you are getting to the right place and you are doing so well. A few months ago you wouldn't have been able to go in there and just have a soft drink and leave so you should be proud of that achievement.
Saw the boimechanic chap yesterday and things are looking good. Turns out he's a runner/triathlete so very much knew where I was coming from and was really positive in what he thought I should be able to achieve which was lovely. He said I have hypermobility in my joints and it's really bad in my left knee which is most likely the cause of my problems there. He also said my core was totally rubbish which won't help either! I have to really work on building strength in my body, not only in the muscles but the ligaments as well so they will support my knee properly. But if I don't strengthen all over then my body won't be held right and I'll continue to get problems. He's given me some exercises - lunges, squats, core stuff - and if I work hard then I can look at starting to run again in about a month. We had a little chat about weight and food but not much as I know what the issues are there and that now I can train again that will help me. I should also do cross training three times a week, so am doing a walk, a cycle and a swim for those. I will do the exercises and some of the physio ones twice a week and use my TRX once a week as that's good for strength too and will give me some variety. He also said I need to go to a pilates class for my core, so am trying to find one of those but gosh they're expensive! They don't do it at my gym so we have to pay for it seperately (Mr TST is going to do it too as it'll be good for his arthritis). He did say we could do a six week course and then work from a DVD so at least that's something. Still going to cost about £90 for the two of us though
So onwards and upwards! Mr TST is going to do all the training with me until I can run again as he needs to do strengthening stuff anyway for his arthrtis, then he'll find something to occupy himself while I'm running as he's not allowed to do that. We are going for a walk tonight and am rather excited about it, it's even kept me off the junk!
The original thread called Giving Up The Booze in the beginners section and started back in 2004 by Egglett. It disappeared when they made changes and now you can only access it if you have posted on it previously and have an email link or it comes up in your search bar. It's still active, but only to those who know where it is, so it must still be on the system so those of us that use it don't understand why they can't reinstate it again
