Just to say.............

Postby Beantighe » Sun Dec 21, 2008 10:18 pm

Sorry I haven't been around much lately. I haven't been feeling very well and I've been so so tired. I've been feeling very stressed out and when I get stressed, I itch all over and it stops me from sleeping. I've been taking anti-histamines for years because of it, and now I'm having to take an extra one at night to try to stop the itching so I can sleep. Xmas is always a bad time for me because of the dark days and long nights. I just feel so drained and shattered all the time, I have a job to put one foot in front of the other, and the extra pressure associated with Xmas just makes me feel worse. I've got to the stage now where I just want to go to sleep and not wake up till it's all over. There'll only be me and John on Xmas day, so it'll just be like a normal Sunday, with a roast dinner at about 5pm and nothing to do but channel hop on the telly till bedtime. I'm just feeling really down. Sorry guys............................. I know I haven't answered some PMs, but I just haven't felt up to it. Just thought I ought to explain..................

Sorry to hear you're feeling under the weather Beantighe. At least the promise of the nights getting lighter from now will hopefully bring some cheer to your life :D It is rather depressing, going to work in the dark and coming home in the dark.......starting to feel like a vampire :!: :roll: :lol: :lol:

Hope things start improving for you and you get some sleep :D

Hi Beantighe :) I was a bit worried about you, but didn't want to hassle you with loads of PMs. I hope that you feel better soon and that John looks after you ans takes good care of you.

Look after yourself

I think it'll be better now he's home for a couple of weeks. He's been working every weekend for the last two months, and I've been alone at home 24/7 for all that time, going stir crazy and climbing up the walls.........

This isn't a funny question, hon, but do you drink the nettle tea, or do you sponge it on externally? I understand the homeopathic principle of like cures like, so it's not so daft.

I know it's definitely SAD, hon, I've had it all my life, but this is the worst I've ever known it.

Seeing a doctor isn't an option - my doctor would only laugh at me, he's done it before. I'm so scared of doctors I just turn to jelly and get the shakes even at the thought. I'd rather jump out of a plane at 30,000ft, even with a parachute, than go near a doctor. It's a phobia I've had all my life, and doctors themselves were the cause of it.

Much love to you Beantighe and I know that we will see you here with your wicked sense of humour intact when you are feeling better. :D Sending you lots of hugs and love from me and let John do some pampering of you for a little while. You can recharge and fill up on the returning sun.

This has been a tough year for you and something has to give at some point and better now than getting really really run down and very poorly.

Lots of love

Sujee xx

Beantighe

I fully understand about the Doc, I have said before a vet is much better & I stick by that. I stay away as much as I can too, waste of my time & waste of theirs :roll:
A shower sometimes helps with itching but not always, hope you can sleep tonight.

I know of damiana, hon - and that's not all it's good for! :twisted: It's sleep I need, rather than night-time physical jerks! :twisted: :wink: Although they do say exercise helps you sleep - maybe that's how it works! Then of course I'd need something for pulled muscles and a bad back......................... :twisted:

Oh, I think you'd better just shoot me and have done with it! :lol:

Sorry to read you are so low, and there you are caring about cats, amongst your own troubles. You sound like a friend of mine who has M.E she sometimes barely has the energy to get out of bed and she gets really low in the Winter. I do sympathise about doctors too,I'm to drag in a strait jacket if I'm forced to go.I had really bad reactive depression after losing my disabled mam to cancer as I'd been her carer for many years,but I didn't get much help from him and ended up going through agoraphobia, anxiety and panic attacks, for years. Until I discovered an alternative therapist who helped me, with EFT and Reiki. We became good friends, but sadly she died of breast cancer a few years ago.
I do hope you feel better soon, be kind to yourself.
BIG hug xx

Thanks hon! [smilie=msn_heart.gif] At this rate, I think we should start a commiseration group for fellow sufferers! :)

I think when you suffer like this, one of the greatest helps is to know you're not alone, because the worst thing about it is the feeling of isolation it causes.

Wouldn't it be lovely if it were possible to all get together every so often just so we could all give each other a great big massive hug, and distribute tea and biscuits? Ooh, and compulsory CHOCOLATE!!! :P :P :P
