Stacey....very sorry to hear your cherry bombs are the size of golf balls and going black..........is it very painful?or does it only hurt when sitting down?
Hello folks I'm back - glorious drive south in autumn sunshine - ploughed fields and berried hedgerows - piddling down on the way back
Been "pidding" down here too Dove
Gilly, you are a naughty girl (I assume?!)
So, massive panic attack (my first) at work today. Not fun. Don't ever want to have one of those again. Was back home by 9.45. Found relief walking round my garden. Mum, Dad and OH very supportive. Lots of hugs and hot drinks. Mum even brought me chocolate Not sure I'll make it to work tomorrow. Taking each moment as it comes.
Finding a lot of solace on here. Keep up the good work! You all make me smile so much, and lets not forget how much I'm learning
Definately a girl Panda,well at least I was the last time I looked!
Chocolate always helps
Hugs panda x
Talking. For panic attacks I think talking is essential. Never had one myself bwit experienced it in others a few times and calming, soothing talk works. WorkIng through it....maybe why it happened etc. I guess something has happened 4thPanda.....illness, death, crisis or crises. First encountered this when my young sister ...aged 30....had months of chemo and radiotherapy and it was when all that finished that she suffered panic attacks. You learn fast that talking and comfort is prob only relief. I,think its the mind's way of dealing with trauma much like our dreams recycle our daily lives.
Yes, 4thPanda you do,have support here willing you to smile, relax and "take each day as it comes"
Oh gilly the tears of laughter reading that post!!!! hugs for making my night xx
Verdun which chilli Are you saying sounds good? If its my chilli sauce then pm mme your address and I will get some in te post to you ........
Ok, thanks will do that
4thpanda, you clearly have close support there but the Samaritans is also worth considering. They are strangers to you and you can say how you feel, what your concerns are, what your fears are without affecting anyome else. I mean that you don't have to worry about upsetting your family, etc. You can ring at any time of day or night. Simply to speak out to a "listener" is surprisingly healing
It will get better ((hugs)) - my daughter's been there and out the other side
Panda hugs to you ...... It's happened now enjoy chocolates relax... Talk about what triggered it when you are ready ......... Btw you rock for tackling it head on strong woman ( even strength has weekness) xxxx
Panda a friend sent me this quote when I was diagnosed with cancer..... It served me well xxxxx
I find references to people who are ill needing forgiveness offensive. They are not to blame for it. Dark parts, demons, angels, balderdash... medical conditions need expert rational medical help not claptrap.
Thank you all. I am touched. Will remember the Samaritans Verd.
So, lets lighten this up. . . OH still thinks 135 bulbs were too much. Now I have 235 he is flabbergasted. I told him Bob the Gardener has 660 tulips on order and he nearly had a fit. Didn't like to tell him that I was thinking about doing Mrs G's idea of daffs down the path! Will need considerably more to achieve that! Hahaha!
How many bulbs do you/did you have to plant?
Woody I was I'll and it helped me gather the uuummpppphhhhh I needed to get through.....and of course there is no substitute for expert medical advice and guidance .... As for needing forgiveness I see where you are coming from but I didn't take it so literal( although I did feel guilty when I found out case my lo was only 6 months old and I felt I had failed as a mother cause I could die) these words helped me centre when the world around me was falling apart.May if you have never had to cling to anything in a remote hope lucky you......I quite frankly find your words offensive and dismissive but that is the wonder of being able to express your views
Massed ranks of flowering bulbs in spring never fail to cheer. But, it's still late summer so let's enjoy that first. And after 1 November there is A***** to enjoy too.
Face your fears, and live your life.
