Hi folks, here I am in bed getting ready for yet another trip to the bathroom to do a technicolor chunda, I hate this, I have not had anything to drink or even my meds today. Also have a spectacular chesty cold. If I don't settle by tonight I will have to go to the doctor....which is pretty expensive. What a crappy day!

Hi Neb big cyber hugs for you. I have less colour to my illness but have been battling the flu for a couple of weeks now and I coughed so hard I now have a hernia. Feeling your pain!

It's very minor - have been told to go back in if I get any pain. Now the coughing has eased up it's not so much of a problem thank goodness.

Neb, It musyt be that time of year, I am at the end of that precarious tether and I just don't know what to do. I am lower than a snakes belly and can see no way of crawling out, othing is working. Strange isn't it one day full of wisdom , next full of hopelessness , where do I go, what can I do???. I wish I could say what you have just said but even though medication does not help you still swallow them with the hope that things will right themselves, I cannot see a way out. Maybe it will dawn once again on me or back into the looney bin again. Sorry to load everyone up.

it's a bugger when you're feelings are in charge, being lower than a snake's belly is no place to be..when you have expereinced seconds, minutes, hours, days or weeks like this, what helped you get though it? I am wondering if chatting to your Grandaughter might help?
We all have these days where it's just crap, but hang in there Loopy and if your usual strategies (medication, mindfulness, writing, whatever it is that got you through the worst in the past), try something different. Can you call a service you trust if it gets too tough to handle? The Suicide CallBack service is very helpful, @NikNik or @Karma or @Baloo or @ CherryBomb has posted the numbers of services like this in another post.
@moderators can you put a list of after hours numbers up like suicide call back service, lifeline, etc? That would be very helpful..
Thanks and @Loopy, use the strategies that work or try something new..keep us posted here on the Forum so we know you're ok...feelings are like the weather and the bad weather can't last...let time pass..
Virtual hug to you!!

Toall those poor buggers with that orrible flu, not yet had it, I know that it can knock your socks off as well as punish your lungs and belt the crap out of you tummy. Old remedy, warm lemon and water drink, aspro and get your core temp. up. The bug hates all three. Soon it will abandon you body then only memories remain.

@Alessandra1992, I'm not sure if you've noticed, (it is a little hidden), but lifeline is listed at the top of the forums? I like your idea though, I'll mention it to the others, maybe we could make it clearer, for easy access.
Thanks for all your contributions, hopefully you new business is a good state?
We look forward to seeing you back here when you can.
