hi all. jamie here.
 
first something funny that works. when you do a big load of washing, and it is ready to spin, grab the sides of your washer and put your front as close to the front and yeah get a good massage!! it's funny eh!! but it works. esp on the big spins!!
 
did 2 days of gardening, slahing, racking and mowing. my mate loaned his mower, sat at the porch and watched me, did not offer any help, thus when he got back from visiting my neighbour i packed his mower into his van and told him to bugger of. he and bob have been around all week long, thus i told them both to leave me alone for at 4 days. i haven't had time to scratch myself. i also put up 2 blinds, real hot today 37c next few days will be over forty. i need to finish 3 big assignments, the government has cut my study money and i am trying to get into the approved course to have it reinstated.
 
am sore and tired. felt good to do some hard yakka. more to do.will see the lady next fri, she has been on respite. okay, be good. a tad less withdrawn, still depressed but managing, a tad disassociative still, but less cranky as i have had no visitors today to bug me!!! much to do....so see you all in the soup and i will see ya later. jamie.
 
with healing compassion to you all.

Hey Jamie,
 
It sounds like you have a lot on your plate right now.  But you sound to be managing well.  I hope so. 
 
Know that we are always here for you.  No matter what, or how you feel.  You have been on top for a long time as far as moods go.  I think we all have a time where we sink a little, I think that is normal.  I guess we can't feel great all of the time.  I myself am going through a difficult time.  I got my meds adjusted, and hope to feel better soon. 
 
You take care of you, one day at a time.  You are a good person Jamie and know that we are all here for you, always.
 
Hugs, Karen

Jamie,
 
It sounds like you are really staying busy.  You are right, slow and steady wins the race. 
 
I will trade you some of my cold for some of your warm.  It is freezing here. 
 
I hope that you have a good day/night.  I think it is night time there.  It is just beginning of the day here.
 
I have to work today.  And tomorrow.  Then I am off until spring, I think.  They want me to continue to work, but I need a break.
 
Have a good one.
 
Hugs, Karen

Hey you two!!
 
How are you?  Jamie you sound like you are busy and doing better....it is so nice to see some zip in your notestongue   Karen I do hope you are hanging in there you mentioned having a rough time.....I do hope that has improved and today finds you feeling better!
 
We could definitely us some of your heat Jamie.....has been bitterly cold here of late.....although a heat wave coming.......30F by wednesday!!  Better dig out the shortssmilewinkgrin
 
I think you guys can maybe tell me if this is good or just DH pretending.......DH was still not real well ....still on cymbalta,xanax and perphe****ne..........a week ago saturday I was having a suprise 40th party for my sister and if it wasn't for that I don't think hubby would have gotten out of bed.......but then by tuesday he was saying he was feeling better and would be giving the cymbalta another month.  He has been on the cymbalta dose he is on now for about 7 weeks.......he was insisting he wasn't going to stay on it as it was not working and it's cost is $100 per month....that's our cost!!  Not cheap.  Can a drug just kick in that fast after being on it for weeks and noticing no affect what so ever?
 
Other than that.....nothing new to report.  Dreading the cold!!  Hugs to you both!!   Jennscool

Hi there Jenn,
 
So glad that you posted.  I am glad that your hb is feeling better.  It sounds like the med is working for him.  I am so happy for that. 
 
I am feeling better too.  Upped my pristiq to 100 mg.  It seems to be helping.  I am off work now until spring.  Cant handle it in this winter weather.  Too hard on the fibromyalgia.  So this is my puppy leave as I am getting a german shepherd pup in March.  I am so excited. 
 
It is going to warm up into the 30's here this week too.  I am looking forward to that.  It has been really cold lately.  I stay inside most of the time.  Hope to get the nerve to cross country ski this winter.  It always does me a world of good.  But it is hard to get started. 
 
I hope that this finds you having a good day today.  Take care, keep in touch with us.  I always love reading your posts.
 
Hugs, Karen

So glad to hear you are feeling better Karen!!  I remember when you talked about getting the puppy......That sure is coming up quickly!!  Mine will be 1 in march she is a devil!!  But I love her to death!

I am crossing my fingers that the meds truly are working .....I am very leary as he has "faked" happiness many times in the past only to blindside me later with his anger and depression.  So I am being cautious.  It would be wonderful if they are doing something to help him. 

I will keep in touch definitely!!  Can't wait to hear about the puppytongue

 

Hugs......Jennscool

seen the lady tonight, was good. i noticed she is wearing the ring. made me smile. we spoke about future stuff-she was worried that i was going to take everything on myself. i debuncted that quickly. i said you need to have your carers when i am not at home, etc and that you need your girl time with them also. these nice carers are her mates as well, she has been with them for some time. i also said that at home and when out together that i want to recognised as her partner and carer. this will help stream-line services for us, including centrelink-our pension provider and in terms of either having the house upgraded and or put into a new house that has everything we need. i was told from a friend about how to go about it, this helps. tired but happy. cheers, jamie.

Hi Jamie!!  Dude you need to sleepwink

Dh has been working lots of hours at work so I rarely see him these days.  He seems ok I guess.....however I remain on guard as I am used to him pretending and then blindsideing me a couple of weeks later.  He sees his MD on monday and I guess will be staying on the cymbalta for another month to see how it does at least that is his plan.....we will see what MD says.  I would guess he would agree.  I have heard that MD will no longer be seeing patients he is going to concentrate on inpatient only.....so I am not sure how DH will take that having to start over with a new MD.  I am hoping that maybe he will continue to see a select few patients and Dh will be one.  But I doubt it.  So hopefully that is not a backslide.

DH has continued however with some of his disrespectful behavior towards menono   I have kept my mouth shut and not said a word.  He knows how I feel and what is acceptable I won't tell him again.  With that said, with every comment made about other women I move a step away........eventually if he doesn't grow up and act his age I won't be close enough to catch. 

That is about it....I guess.  I am so glad to hear you had a great day yesterday!!  It certainly sounds as if everything is moving in a positive direction for you my friend!! 

Now go back to bedtongue

Cheers my friend!!  -Jennscool

jenn, i hope he smartens up his act real soon. yes, continue to be wary, but don't take his crap. this behaviour is not good, especially as the meds have had time to kick in. maybe just moody, maybe not. hey, take care of you, will be up a while longer go shopping at 8am!! darn insomnia!! have a nice w/e. thx, things are looking up, her mum will be a different kettle of fish though. can't stop true love!! remember i am here for you. with compassion and kindness. jamie. here comes the second wind!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You are correct......nothing can stop true love...not even a stubborn old batturn   I will remain wary and I am doing pretty well on taking care of me.  I want to say something to him when he pulls his crap but whats the use.  He's heard it a zillion times.  However thats why I said everytime he does it I step on step away and will eventually will be to far gone.  His loss if that happens.

Second winds are awesome.......there are times that is the only way I get anything donesmile

Enjoy your weekend as well....relax and take some time for you and your lady, sounds like that brings you so much joy!

Hugs my friend.....Jennscool

Hey you two,
 
I am just butting in and wishing you both a wonderful weekend.  It is different for me, I don't have to work.  I am so use to working on the weekends.  This is what I call my puppy leave.  For the pup I will be getting in March.  I will go back to work in the spring.
 
Have a great day!!!
 
Hugs, Karen
