Hi Everyone,

It's time for our weekend check-in thread :-)
This is just a thread for everyone to check-in and let us know how was the past week for you.

Let us know how did you get through the week? What are your upcoming plans for the weekend?
How's everyone doing? Share anything you'd like with us.


No plans for me. Work today and I have to catch up on some reading for school. It is hard work and it's only just started. I hope I can get through it.

Wishing everyone a great Friday!

been mediating intense family stuff. my fiancé has been dealing with some stuff dumped on her from various people and I have been helping my sis with her cervical lumbar and stenosis stuff. she got some major neuro going on. falls, her gait, feet and pain / twitching. me, now that I caught up with my fiancé last night till her internet pooped it'self I slept good. my sis gave me some Naprosyn, really helped and with the sublax shoulders. had to get a new microwave. the other was rusted, stopped spinning and was a dinosaur. visited mum and sis, mum is somewhat stable, but inevitably will decline. she is very marginal. I am not going to discuss the boys. that is a expletive mess. I am playing the best of black Sabbath, it is a double album with the best stuff.

omg, iron maiden are back, bruce has rejoined, a new album is out and are touring. I have never seen them. sis getting the album for my birthday. awesome, can't wait. judas priest came out and I missed them $ ! there new album rocks, that was last year. they were hear jan / feb. my sis is having a birthday as well. we are born on the same day, but exactly a year apart. new year children as mum laughs with a big grin!!! I was 4 weeks late, like I don't want expletive out!!

weather has been alright last few days. yesterday was nice. been cleaning, cupboards fridge and stuff. well, I miss my beautiful lady, and she me. love is a beautiful thing. I have been wrongly burnt many times and had invested a lot, always a gentleman, loving, giving, never done wrong. it puts a smile on my dial and warms my heart when she says I have you and it is there loss. I told deb early on that I have been loving you before I met you. even that tears me up, for it is true. I never knew it was going to happen, esp after a brief relationship where she passed away. she was basically killing herself. it was 6 years of pain.

the w/e I have been writing out some painful things, ripping them up into tiny pieces, putting them in a wet can for the rubbish. cathartic. my sis has moved house, another sis, I bought her a house warming gift. I got myself a cool cup. i will do some yard work during the week. sis has a ladder i never knew of, so i have loaned it as i will prune the apple tree whilst it is bare, and pull down the apricot tree; does not help with the mice, something i am always combating. not this Monday but next mum and i have my bro's second meeting, he will be in attendance, and a rude awakening when he sees his big bro there.

a neighbour moved in. i had three lawn mowers that needed little repairs, he has not got much so i gave them for free. he is loaning my brush cutter, we will see the trust level on this. i give people only one chance nowadays. i am a little worried that mum will soon be pushing up dasies. i am ready, but the rest of the family will not be. i have seen too much death the last few years. 4 in the last year and a half, my best mate, another mate, who was a user, but still my mate, he stayed here for quite awhile, and buttons. a year before was a dear dear family friend. i said good bye at the hospital, gave her a kiss told her good bye and walked out. she died peacefully a week later. a cousin a few years ago and dave 13 years ago who died in my house. he was living with me. so i have been immune to it now. i guess i am no longer shocked. i mean i nearly kicked it a 2 times and once intentionally.

well i am off for a walk or something. i guess this has been the longest post by me ever on this forum. my shrink has sort of dropped me, oh well, my therapist is in 2 weeks and my gp. i am awaiting on basic blood results for sugars, vit d and hormones. i have been getting vit d, it is important with the diabetes and because there is brittle bones disease in the family. i think i will make an earlier apt for my therapist after this one. thx for letting me say a few words. i was sort of in the zone, and whilst in it i thought, well write. love you all i do. x ttys.

many mistakes I know. see ya soon.

Hi Jamie,

You're got a lot going on. I hope your test results will be good. Sorry about your shrink dropping you. Don't worry about it. You've got us :-)!

It sounds like you got a lot of cleaning done. I have to clean the house before mom arrives. Thursday's a public holiday here so I will probably do it then as her flight back is in the night.

Writing thoughts can be helpful evening if it's discarded afterwards. My therapist thought me to write letters to people who hurt me telling them how I feel even though I don't give it to them.

You and your sis with same birthdays, just years apart. That's cool! Any birthday plans?

Take Care and know that we are always here for you.

Where's everyone else? The forum is really quiet...

Have a good day my friend!

Thinking of your Jamie.

Caren, it sounds nice indeed. Hope you had a good time.

No plans for me this weekend. Completed most of my assignments for this weeks units for school. Just plan to read up and learn some stuff. Mum is off to Tobago for the weekend with friends.

Wishing everyone a great weekend.

What's everyone doing for the weekend?

I'm up late doing an assignment due Monday. This one is a bit challenging. I completed it but still have to review before submitting. Since school started, I feel like the weekend just goes by quickly. No time to take a break. My weekends are not filled with completing assignments and doing my usual chores.

I'm starting to feel a bit down again. But I am occupied with stuff for work and school assignments so it is distracting me.

I hope everyone is having a good weekend.

Hi Cilly & Jamie,

Sorry you forgot your password. I too have problems remembering passwords. I use the same password for most things. Like turtle, I also save mines in my notes on my PC. Remembering passwords is not one of my strengths.
For work, I have all my tasks set as reminders. If I don't have it, I'll forget what I need to do.

How was you movie Cilly? How are you feeling now? Any better? When you're getting frustrated, remember to use some of your distraction techniques. Try to stay away from what is getting you frustrated. Try some deep breathing as well. This helps to get your mind calm.

Thinking about you turtle. Hope your mom and bro is doing okay.

Hope everyone had a great weekend. I was down so the weekend in bed. Got some assignments done for school though.

Wishing everyone a great week ahead!

Glad you got an okay sleep ppm guy. How are you doing today with the decrease?

Slept 6 hours straight, so I'm good. My Pdoc isn't very helpful, so I do all my own research.

I also have severe ms. Long term side effects can cause exacerbations
Of ms. I'm 65 yo. And I never took a pysch med until dr felt it would help me accept the cards I've been dealt. I'm also OCD ADHD(overfocused). Very difficult to treat. My twin has same diagnosis, and he's had a challenging life. He always told me, don't ge started on psych meds. I'm going to slowly stop all psych meds. I bed to be slightly manic to be productive. I've started an organic diet with daily exercise program.

I can tell I'm off a little by rereading this post, but I feel OK!!
So enjoy the day

Glad you got some sleep. Sorry about your doc. If they're not helpful, I would suggest you try to find another doc who will be supportive and listen to you.

You have a twin! That's cool! cool
I think taking things slow is the best. Take it one day at a time.

I hope the new diet and exercise program will help you.

Deep breathing helps me sometimes when I feel out of control. I did a lot of mindfulness in therapy.

I hope you have a good day!

Hope your black Friday was safe HT.

Sorry about the flu cilly. How are you feeling now?

It wasn't just a black friday here, it was a black weekend for me. Sad to hear about Paris and the attacks. Then, we has our work anniversary party. Things were good but fun doesn't last... I've been down and out of it, hence why I'm MIA. Stay away from work for 2 days. Spent it in bed.

I hope everyone is having a good week so far.
