Misery - hope, scales not weight related!

Hi folks

I always worry when I start pondering. I’ve devised a scale not weight related, so how are thing today on a scale of 1 - 10? It’s a 6 today but recently I’ve been hovering at 3/4. The sun is shining and the hole in my roof is fixed, much better than raining and the hole in my roof NOT fixed! Is pondering the same as waffling? This light banter thing might be irrepressible or terminal, I’m not even going to apologise.

Have a good weekend and take care, M

Cheers Sarah, have you seen the ‘domesticgoddess’ post on her recent holiday. I’m so glad that I am not alone in my madness I think I will have a 6 today, I’m talking myself into that as a 4 is more realist. Not having a good leg day more wobbly than usual - is it all in my head? Courage and be positive, 5/6 here I come!

Take care, M

If I were to use a scale, I think in general it would be at about three. I retied three plus years ago, (normal retirement age), and hate retirement, as work was my whole life, I lived to work, not worked to live, have never been on holiday, or socialised, so now just like a race horse put out to grass to see its days out.

A grumpy, bad tempered old git.

On a more positive subject, my (PPMS), on a scale, would range from, five to eight, five being at worst.

Progression since diagnosed in 2003, (symptoms long before that), would be just a four.

Sorry, have to complicate things and have more than one scale, will have to formulate a spreadsheet to keep track.

Take care.

I know its going to be a bad day when I get out of bed and miss the floor, today is such a day.

Hi, well I seem to have gone from 1 to 10 and back again all in one day.

Right now, in bed, cosy, cup of tea, I would say about 8.

Antiques Roadshow and Downton Abbey later so I’m aiming to stay around 8 which is a good place to be.

Hi Chris

I like the cut of your jib, have as many scales as you like. I loved my job and my colleagues ‘forced’ to retire April 2009 AND still miss it every day!! Is there any hope for me? Yes there damn well is this website! I didn’t use to visit very often because it made me sad, I’m trying to do my little bit with waffle/rambling AND never being too serious. What do you think?

Take care: I’m having a 5 type of day. Take care, M

Yes, go for it.

Hovering between 2/3, this is not good! Get yourself a cup of coffee, okay obviously not just waffling and rambling now I’m talking to myself.

Have a good dayTake care, M
