Worries & troubles that affect Forum friends.

Gemma not selfish at all !!! To look after your OH you needed to be able to sleep.

Lyn we can feel the grief in your post and your efforts to sound pragmatic are brave of you. Like others if I could help you I would. Think Fidget is probably thinking the same things as you. You cannot do better than your best. The time does come when self preservation needs to kick in x

To all who are in awful situations I send my best wishes.  We can't help in practical ways but can give our love and emotional support.

Lyn you can't keep doing what you are currently doing.

Some jobs will have to be left.

This is meant with kindness, I suggest if mum wants to stay in bed you let her I'm sure she understands the consequences and why you want her to be mobile, but it is her choice. You can't keep doing all the physical things and the emotional strain you are under is huge. I understand your love for your parents is driving you but you will be very ill if you continue to battle alone.

Joke entry from me 

Outdoor medium sized cherry one called Dave no idea of it's real name but have continued it each year from saved seeds and it's delicious   Dave was the chap who gave me the original plant 5yrs ago but he lost the label when he grew his  I have passed on seeds and others think they are really tasty. 

Washing fleece

Last post I'll make on the subject. My friend repaired washing machines and the biggest earner for the company was people getting things stuck in their pumps.

Laundry bags aren't great!  Wish he had a quid for each bra wire that escaped the bra and the laundry bag and blocked the pump.  So bits of fleece reduced to pulp won't do the washer any good, think what happens when you leave a tissue in a pocket.  

Hand wash or chuck them away
