That all sounds so positive mabel, I'm really pleased for you and it's lovely to have you back  >hugs<

Have the cats all acclimatised to your new bungalow now or are any still thinking the flat along the road is where it's at?

Good to be back.  I probably am still doing too much but I am trying to cut back.  I'm involved with fundraising with my local male voice choir which is actually quite fun.  I go along to their concerts and we have singing sessions in the pub which are great.

I am also in the early stages of a new relationship.....

Hello back to you, Mabelcat - good to see you posting again!

I think the being realistic thing is something we all have to face up to at some point - accepting limitations instead of constantly fighting them to the detriment of our own health.  Hope you can find a balance that keeps you as well as you can be - and nice to know the cats are still part of your life and that you're living somewhere better  >thumbsup<

Disability Talk / Hello Again!

I realise it's been a very long time since I posted so thought I'd better say hello.

I'm still plodding along here in Cornwall with my cats.  I moved house at Christmas from a flat to a bungalow partly to escape trying neighbours - it's much quieter on the whole and it's much easier being on one level.  I think the cats prefer it as well.

Mental health wise I've had a recent blip and have been off work for a while but am hoping to return soon.  I've been seeing a private therapist for the past couple of years which has really helped me to sort things out though it's been a huge struggle financially.  My physical health too has been challenging.  My asthma has been much worse recently for no obvious reason and the fibromyalgia and chronic fatigue are still there.

Generally though I'm ok I think and working on being more realistic about how much I can do.

Two weeks?  They seem to think they know what we're going to get in two months!!

They've been right about the past five days or so, anyway - very humid (and up to 24C in my home).  Yesterday evening I partook of a second bath before turning in, and out came the 'heat sheet' again, duvet being pushed to the bottom of the bed until further notice...

The therapist said given that is my main pain, she worries how I will feel at the end of the compassion focused therapy when my pain is still there and just as strong and painful.

I'm surprised at this, I thought the whole point of this therapy - which the CMHT decided would be most beneficial to you? - was to help you with that, to have some sort of a life (with reduced depression) despite the actions of your offspring, through learning to forgive yourself for not leaving abusive ex sooner, and all that >confused<

Families can be so cruel to each other  >thumbsdown<  I still think your children are being totally unreasonable, particularly as there are grandkids involved.  Talking of families, we've had a bit of a happening - my favourite aunt (mum's sister) in hospital with myeloma - a form of bone-marrow cancer, which thankfully is treatable.  So cousins and I are blitzing her house while she's away from it, and I've sort of taken charge of deep-cleaning the kitchen.  Scrubbing the tiled floor today, I discovered muscle groups in my legs that I didn't know I had  >yikes<
