General Discussion / How is everyone doing?

Hi everyone,

 How is everyone doing.

I must say it has been a roller coaster for me. Things have happened in my family that have left me very sad and upset. I am working through it with the support of many people. I will be okay.

 This weather hasn't helped either. Spring is on the way and that always makes me feel better.

I agree with you momfellinglost. I shouldn't be political either however it sickens me as to what the new ontario government is doing. Cutting back on services that are very needed. Care for autism, day care, prescription drugs for children and retiree's. I could go on and on.

Someone who is rich. Not very educated in government matters and doesn't know how the middle class and poor live. In it for himself and his family and friends.

I will probably get flack with my views. That is okay.

Hi Peter,
Maybe I don't make sense. I find that I procrastinate is because I can't do things that I used to do. It is very frustrating. I should ask a family member or professional to help me. I is hard to admit that you can't do certain things anymore. So I procrastinate.

Yes,
 some people are hypochondriacs. I know a few.One of my husband's aunt was like that. She got prescriptions that were not needed for imaginary ailments  which harmed her health.

Unfortunately when something is really wrong it is hard to believe them. When his aunt was dying I thought oh it is not serious. It is some complaint that doesn't mean anything.

Hi Peter,
 I hardly use salt also. As you say there is a lot of hidden salt in foods. Should make food from scratch to watch salt intake. At this stage of the game being older and mostly on my own I can't be bothered.

Hi Peter,

 I am sorry that you are experiencing anxiety due to your age and what you have experienced with your brother.

I am turning 68 next month. I have a number of health issues. I voiced to my daughter the other day that I worry about my kidney function which is not good. I fear I might eventually have to go on dialysis. My daughter told me not to worry at the moment and to take it one step at a time. I try not to dwell on my health issues and enjoy each day as much as possible. Her advice is really good.

I am thinking of you.

Welcome comfortably numb,

My mental illness has spanned over many years. With great support from my family, friends, medical professionals I am now quite stable.
I am saying quite. Not always believe me.

There are certain triggers for me. Becoming overtired is a big one. Then the negative thoughts start to come in. I ruminate a great deal about what people have said to me that seem unkind. I analyze some of the things I have done in the past as being really bad and effecting my loved ones. As a woman I think hormones play a large part too. Being an insulin dependent diabetic also effects my moods. The weather definitely makes a big difference. Especially spring and fall. Although sometimes it can be the sunniest day and I still feel that heavy mood of depression setting in.
Regular diet, rest, routine help a lot.
Expecting to much of myself definitely does not help. I want to do too many things at once and have them done yesterday. I have to pace myself.

We are very friendly, non-judgmental and supportive here. Please post anytime. What you have to say can help us all greatly. I have learned much from this forum. I feel I have found friends here.

Hi Peace,
 I am glad that you are doing better. It sounds like you are feeling better about yourself. I have been thinking about you and how you are   doing.
Hi Peter, Hope you are feeling better.
I am doing quite well. I am excited. I am going to be an Oma (grandmother) again. My son and his partner are having a baby boy. Due date is supposed to be Feb. 14. The second name that they are giving him is after my deceased husband. I am very sentimental about this and feel very honored that they have chosen my husbands name.
I am going camping for the last time this year. It is for Thanksgiving and the campers have halloween there. We decorate the campsite and the kids dress up and go around around for candy. Even me and my daughters dress up. My son, partner and 3 kids are going. As for myself and my two daughters. We have turkey dinner there. It is a yearly tradition and is always fun.
I have been lonesome in the past. Now due to some circumstances my youngest daughter is staying with me about 80 percent of the time. She goes home on her days off to be with her sister to their place.
I cannot complain.
I hope everyone else is doing well.
Have a Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
