Hello sass

work continues to dominate at the moment due to manager and I not seeing eye to eye . We have worked together 15 years always got on like house on fire but she’s got herself into a toxic relationship that’s affecting her at work . Big time! 

Hopefully things will settle . 

How are you and what are you up to? 

I need to post to you and Anna . I’ve read all that you both post then jump off back to work. 

Partner not well at the moment he’s been poorly for a month  and hospital have booked him in for emergency colonoscopy  which Is this Sunday . Last few days he seems to be picking up so that’s good . I’ve been cooking for him and his two children of a weekend and Saturday just gone I took his daughter to uni to pick all her belongings  up to take home . So I truly haven’t had a minute . 

My grass needs cutting my house needs cleaning etc etc 

I’m not moaning I like busy but without the work stress . 

Thank you for thinking of me sass and continuing to post . 

Tell me how you fill your days 

do you have children / grandchildren ? 

Where abouts In Scotland are you my brother in law lives in Inverness Morayshire it’s lovely there and I’ve been to Edinburgh loads of times with family and friends different occasions. 

I haven’t forgot pics by the way they’re on their way hopefully later today ! 

Take care 😊

ps this was meant to be a short text before work !!!

Hi LRH

 

Hope things are improving at work, won't mention again  at present.

Is your partner improving?

You certainly have your hands full but remember you need a bit of respite as well, we all think we can do it until we can't and it is a horrible realisation.

Please take care and I can guarantee you the dust will still be there and so will the lawn.

I have no children and not sure I would have been much of a parent.

My first wife was a part time nanny and really wanted a family but following an infection and operation on her fallopian tubes ( not sure I spelt it right ) she was unable to have children.

We did briefly discuss adoption but she wanted her own.

I have never believed in looking back except for happy nostalgia,  so I just carried on spending a lot of time away.

When I was at home we grew more distant until we arrived at the inevitable not helped by her alcoholic father, her mother was a lovely woman.

It's fair to say I did not try hard enough to understand, but I was young and ambitious we learn by experience.

It is possible I had over 30 kids at some point ( what a man eh ).

Driver Keith walked into my office one day. I had a new tractor unit in the yard awaiting signwriting ( remember that before computer graphics? ).

Keith- I will have to take the new unit.

Me- Why?

Keith-The fridge light is not working on mine

Me- Is the fridge working ( he was going to Spain )

Keith- Yes but the light isn't.

Me- Its June,light 18 hours a day. Go away but in truck driver language.

This is just burble, so different from work, you can always hit delete.😁

Will answer other question tomorrow. What a cliffhanger.

One final thing, you have gone fron sassy to sass. If you abbreviate any more I will be SA and then I will never get off this site.

I know you are short of time so no long reply needed, just like to know you are ok.

 

Take care

 

Sas ( oh hell nearly there, help, somebody )

A kid in every port then ..!! You didn’t tell me you were a sailor !!! Ha that made me smile the possibility you could have 30 spread around !!! 

Yrs I’m old enough to remember sign writing ✍🏾 Oh dear and I’ve felt really old this week sassed f brereally don’t like it when I get  to be 39, 49, 59 as only iever a stones throw from the start of the next decade up in this case the big 60!!!!!’

I met my husband when we worked together I was 19. We got married when I was 25 had two children a boy and a girl who are now 30 and 32. The daughter is having her first baby in July so I’m going to be a nan for the first time.  Something I was always looking forward to being a nan but this wd is brutal and has suppressed all my emotions . But not forever !! 

Anyway my husband and I were together 36 years . I was happy. Then 6 years ago my best friend died of breast cancer her children were 8 and 12 at the time and I helped their dad look after  them. Long story short we fell in love and I separated from my husband . But the guilt remains and I am finding it so hard to get on with my life as my husband is a good man . I still try and do family things together with the children and my husband. Think the wd accentuates the guilt unbearably at times for me. 

My story in a nutshell.

@Altostrata

 

i wonder if if you could help with a couple of questions I have. Since the start of my taper I have been bothered with dry eyes and dry mouth with the corners of my mouth a little cracked and red. Is this common in withdrawal and if so why ? The reason I ask is that it sounds like Sjogren syndrome and I wonder if I should get it checked out at the doctors ? 

I also have pain in my left hip again this came on at the beginning of my taper is this a coomon wd symptom too? 

Thank you for your help.  

 

Hi is there a moderator that can help with these questions please ?

Hi LRH

 

I hope you have had a day off today and all went well over the weekend.

No use feeling guilty we cannot control our hearts anymore than our brains with this WD, but I know it is not that easy.

It sounds as though you have all made the best of the situation which says a lot about the personalities of yourself, your husband and kids.

Georgie is adorable and in great condition, does she get a shower and blow dry every week. You do know you cannot perm a dog?😁

As for Keith. About two months later took a container to Tilbury and rung me to say he had got a job Dawn Sarf and the truck was at

L.I.F.T. ( London Iinternation Freight Terminal ) keys in office, forward his cheque. Sent his cheque less cost of driver to get truck about £3.50 left for him I think.

He could have left it at Manchester International Freight Terminal then I would really have known how he felt. Bit obscure but I know you are clever.

Dog pics are, Danny GSD, Mac prick ears as on my profile pic, Tango underneath on settee and being savaged by Mac in the snow, Sunny died Oct 2017 badly abused rescue who only came alive when he discovered balls and water.

Beach pic is Moray coast looking towards Sutherland Hills.

Not good news on colonoscopy front . They took 17 samples for biopsy different sites and swelling in area meant they couldn’t get camera past . Referred for emergency CT scan. 

Wasnt told what it could be but he went to doctors today armed with paperwork from hospital and dr said she doesn’t think it’s cancer from what she has read.

Hi LRH.

 

Thank you, can I have some of your energy please 😎

Don't know if the mods have replied but I have had dry mouth, cracks in the corners of my mouth/lips and a foul taste for a long time.

The taste has gone but dry mouth has not and think yourself lucky you do not have to shave.

Hair is very thin on top but growing everywhere else including corner of mouth. Shaving is interesting !!!!!

Hope you enjoy the movie and keep everything crossed for Paul.

Tough on the kids, you must be god sent for them.

Take care and look after yourself.

Feeling much better today.

Was the movie good?

When is Paul's scan?

How are you and Georgie coping?

So many questions ( born nosey )

Thinking about getting another dog but not sure ( I used to be indecisive but now I am not certain 😁). Mac is a hard act to follow. We all think our dogs are special but having had so many collies I know he was.

Keep up the good work, as if you knew any other way.

Glad your feeling better oh kind one :)

movie was great better than bohemian rhapsody and I loved that. Funny how songs can transport you back in time . “Don’t go breakin my heart I couldn’t if I tried..” Elton and keke Dee remember? I was sixteen and on my first girly holiday to Waymouth in a caravan. I had a great time.  

waiting for date of scan to come through even though emergency they said up to 4 week wait .

me and nut job (call her this because of her big round brown head) doing ok.

I bet you’ll end up having another best friend . Once a dog lover always a dog lover and collies are so beautiful. Where’s the other pics I was promised? 

You off on yr hols this year Sas? 

Whats a typical day for you? What hobbies do you have do you play golf? Do you like cooking? 

Or cleaning !!! Ha!

take care Sas x

Work better this week . Sam and I back to talking so life is a little easier but at least it took my mind off me for a little while if nothing else. 

Have you read the daily mail today the headlines “Victory on Pills that Devastate Lives Of Millions “

major u turn as psychiatrists say patients must be warned of depression drugs risk. Doctors have been told to warn millions of patients about the severe side effects of antidepressants. 

The Royal College of Psychiatrists today admits for The First Time that antidepressants can cause side effects lasting for months. 

 

That last bit should be years not months but oh my ! times are a changing and perhaps we will be heard. This is a start  people like us shouldn’t be going through the nightmare of wd because of Doctors ignorance

I remember Keke Dee, she was so sexy,  Olivia neutron bomb and Bonnie Tyler.

I have a very eclectic taste in music, radio cd player always on.

John Denver to Meatloaf, Tammy Wynette to Charleen Spiteri.

Nutjob, should report you to RSPCA for mental cruelty😂

I did not see Daily Mail, make a point of not reading or watching news any longer, by the way what is Brexit?

Did download a copy of the report and am am going to ask UK members to send a copy to their local practice manager for distribution to the GPs.

Wondering about whether a letter should accompany it pointing out is being sent in the interests of " health and safety ", usually grabs the attention these days.

Would that be too naughty?

 

Got to go will finish later.

Hi LRH

 

I am sorry to hear you are feeling down but you have had a tough couple of weeks.

If things are improving at work give your batteries a chance to recharge.

I have missed chatting to you too.

Answers to a couple of questions.

Golf, good walk spoilt, my sports were rugby and rowing at school, rowing and rallycross in my twenties. Oh and discovered girls at some point.😈

Cooking, beans on toast. Used to cook but my wife spent most of the time telling me what I was doing wrong so got out of that one.

Holidays, fancy caravan sat on drive unused for the last two years because I have not trusted my driving during that time.

Bet you like the sun.

If you show me your bikini I will show you my trunks, just be careful not to get caught in the panic!

I have seen Anna's post. It is disappointing I had hoped she had improved.

I have just had a rough weekend with someone else on here so will chat to her tomorrow.

I am posting the pics next, honest.

Anything to cheer you up.

Hope Paul and the kids are ok.

Thank you

not sure why I feel bad but as you say lots going on so could be that or just another phase Of wd. Not much chance of a re charge have an open day Saturday so just got back from painting at the nursery Paul helping too

hes not good waiting for his biopsy results and CT scan appointment. 

Millie Pauls daughter off to Spain for a week. Just had her eyelashes (extensions) done She asked her dad what they looked like and he said “awesome “ couldn’t think of another word they’re just so “out there” he said . Have to say you can’t miss them ! Honestly why do this generation do everything to excess . 

Hope those beans are Heinz!

whats wrong with your driving? 

I do like the sun and sunbathing seeing different places and good food and wine. those days of wearing a bikini are fast coming to an end. And “trunks” are so “yesterday” Sas I’m presuming the panic will be people running away ;) ..

I’ve read Rs thread it’s horrendous what’s happening to us all. It’s torture. So hard to keep finding the strength to continue but we have to find the end of the rainbow and peace. 

Yes well I’m not holding my breath for the pics you’re too busy helping everyone and that’s ok by me ;) 

rugby rowing and rallycross did you go to Grammar school? 

What have you decided about having another best friend ? 

Take care Sas 

by the way what’s in the name keep meaning to ask sassenach?

Guess you never went out in a miniskirt then😀. Behave yourself Sass you will have a heart attack!

Trunks and yesterday, that's me.

R is having a really tough time not helped by other half who is a GP.

Archbishop Holgates Grammar School, did moderately well but not good enough for my mum.

Driving. About two years ago my eyes started to tire very quickly when driving. Tested twice by optician and photographed, physically they are good.

Realised since WD started  they got much worse very quickly accompanied by  lack of balance and nausea.

Also had poor spatial awareness for a while, not great towing 8 metres of caravan, this has improved.

I am hoping the rest will follow ASAP, really need to get down to York to see my parents.

As for the best friend I keep looking, even picked the phone up to enquire once but did not do so.

As with you and Georgie it is sometimes better to wait until circumstances bring you together.

My dad rescued his last GSD when two farmer's sons were going to shoot him for fun.

He was on their land but no stock around and he was just lost and frightened.

My dad told the police and RSPCA but noone ever claimed him.

So he was spoiled rotten for the next twelve years.

Your pics are in the post ie. your inbox, or should be.

Sassenach. Chessie is right. I am english and living in Scotland. There is now a somewhat derogatory side to the word now.

But, I don't care what they think😈

About any meet with Anna. You said before you could cope but you have had a rough time since then.

I know you are tough but please be careful.

We actually live in a small village and they were welcoming when we arrived and are great neighbours.

Answered in a nutshell, no nutjobs here derrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr
