Today is even achier than yesterday shakehead . It's getting really hard to move around the house :-(.

Not sure what to do about it being Sunday yet - will think on that.


* straighten sheets / make bed
* spend some time outside
* movement / stretching
* some / all dishes
* defrost meat

A few little jobs that can improve my quality of life:

* find a home for business card (frees desk space)
* put batteries in remote
* work on my weekly folder

Other optional extras:

* wipe bathroom bench
* thank-you note?
* Japanese note?
* put bleach or vinegar in toilet?
* budget - finish & envelope
* wrap gift
* order gifts
* prep books for sale
* put donations in car
* put away powder
* keep trying to dry clothes
* rug???

More big hugs to chocholic.

Ivy, sorry you're so achey. I hope it starts getting better. Maybe you should just focus on relaxing and maybe take a nice long bath tonight.

I need to go grocery shopping this evening. Running out of food in the house.

I got the carpet cleaning done yesterday and made $50, so I need to go through the ATM and deposit the check.

No plans this Saturday evening...but I don't feel like doing much anyway.

thanks guys, no sunday tlc's for me.

I've discovered a few things about myself this weekend, which i'm unhappy about. Hopefully this weekend will be a stepping stone to helping me sort myself out. Mum's fella has left, and i can finally relax. A really bad thing happened to me when i was young, and it has damaged something fundamental inside of me. I have no trust in people. Most people have this basic trust in people and they can take them at face value. I cant. I dont trust my mum's new fella, and i wont trust him until he proves that i can trust him.

Mum has tried to tell me to just accept him at face value but i just cant. I asked mum for a few things this weekend so i could feel safe. She didnt have time to do them. We've talked, and i have cried alot. I think we have figured a couple of things out, so hopefully when he comes back next weekend i'll feel safer and better.

I'm just so disappointed. I really thought i was over it. I knew i still had stuff hanging about, like i'm clostrophobic and if i'm in a bed with some-one, i have to be on the outside.

Sorry for the essay, i think i'm just exhausted and need to get everything back out so i can go back over it.

Hugs to Ivy, hope you start to feel better tomorrow

Choc, good luck.

If it helps any, I have no trust in people either. I keep my distance, always. Even with the ones that I like and do trust to a certain degree.

As for getting over past traumas, it's really not easy and sometimes it is literally impossible. It depends on so many different things whether you can or not, but virtually everyone takes a mind-numbingly simplistic attitude towards mental health, including the psychiatrists and psychologists themselves usually. (Sorry for cynicism.)

Anyway, not tlcs for me either...

I did get out for a long walk earlier, so my goal of going out for a walk/drive at least once a day was met. Usually a walk does make me feel better for a while, but disappointingly this didn't really. I'm feeling quite low this evening. Mind, evenings are, without fail, my worst time of the day. Hate the long, draggy evenings, where my stomach is always at its worse and most uncomfortable too. </vent>

Sorry guys. I'm in a right whinging mood... :-/

@Ivy - I hope the achiness goes away soon. I'm sure you've thought of it/done it already, but does a soak in a hot bath do anything to improve the achiness? :-/

Choc, I also had some bad stuff happen to me, but strangely enough, I do trust some extent. Down deep I always question people's motives though, and I get paranoid thinking that people don't really like me, but use me. We all have our issues, I guess. But you're not alone. The fact that you made it through the weekend and learned something from it means you're making baby steps. I'm glad the weekend is over for you, and you can relax again.

Ivy...It's now Monday your time and you haven't posted....are you ok? I hope the aches aren't getting worse :(

NCOT-It seemed to be one of those weekends for all of us. I didn't accomplish anything this weekend, besides the carpet cleaning Friday evening. I didn't even make it to the bank to deposit the check.

I've been sneezing all day, and feel crappy and slightly feverish. Hopefully this is just allergies and I'm not getting something. Took some nighttime cold medicine but it isn't making me tired, so I'm reading and trying to relax.

I hope Monday is a better day for us all! (((hugs)))) to all of you!

Yeah, hope you are okay, Ivy... *hugs* :-/

It's Monday afternoon my time now. Got a thankfully quite good night's sleep (it really does make all the difference; if only I could make myself sleep well every night). I did have a very morbid dream where, uh, both my parents died on the same day, so maybe it wasn't that good a sleep come to think of it... :-/

Monday TLCs are quite modest:

- Drive mum into town to do the weekly shop (I do this nearly every Monday anyway)
- Er...

Not sure. I need to think some more about moving out; it's a massive, massive step for me. If I go ahead, I know which step to take next, but I'm not sure I'm ready to do it right away, as in today. On a simpler but almost as agonising level, I'm also deciding whether to grit my teeth and invest in a laptop. I was gonna upgrade my desktop PC anyway; a laptop would be more expensive, but not miles more.

I hate decisions :-/
