Just back from my evening out and feeling a bit calmer. Thank you all so very much for listening and for your comments and also the lovely PM I received. Rosemary mentioned letting my anger out and I know 100% this is right, problem is I need time to let it out! http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_w...
I've just got home from a shopping trip with DD. She has special needs (as regulars will know! http://dev.carersuk.org/j3/images/icon_wink.gif ) and she goes off on her own for a while and we meet up later. Anyway, I was in a charity shop and 2 staff members were talking. One was the manager and the...
Get some of that bubble wrap (the bigger bubbles the better) lay it on the floor and jump up and down on it!! Image I also like putting some music in my ears and going for a long brisk walk by myself.
Vicky - you're going to be having a busy time then!! Do you want to tell us about the private treatment centre? Just sounds interesting but don't feel you have to. http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_smile.gif Hope it proves helpful. Will send you some positive vibes! http://www.carersuk.org/images/...
Laisydaisy - I was like you, I enjoyed having my kids about. At this time of year I was always looking forward to the school holidays. I really enjoyed having my kids at home. People used to think I was mad but it meant we could relax the morning routine, have a bit of a lie-in if we wanted. Have da...
<t>Do you know Pixie - I was thinking just that the other day. Most days a man walks past our house taking his little girl to school. She's about 7 and seems a happy, bright little girl. She skips along and is usually a fair way behind him.<br/> <br/> He always has a cigarette in one hand and talkin...
I understand most of what all of you are saying. I get very envious of people who can go shopping for the day, go to work, concerts, weekends away, holidays, weddings, christenings etc without thinking twice about it and I just wish that sometimes I could join in and be normal for a while. My Mum a...
Maybe it was a good thing I did this thread then. http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_smile.gif I want you all to know that I have read every single word of all your posts and it has helped me and reminded me that I'm not the only one. I am also very conscious that some of you are having a much toug...
Stacey - I can hear that you know how I feel exactly! Don't know about you but I coast along for ages and do pretty well and then something happens to remind me and I feel sad and kind of empty for a period. Praise the Lord I'm not like this all the time. http://www.carersuk.org/images/icon_lol.gif ...
I am very out-going, chatty, sociable etc but I honestly feel that not one person (other than hubby) really knows how I feel about being Mum to someone with special needs. I tend to keep a lid on things and don't share my innermost thoughts and feelings about my DD. I have found though that just wri...
