I’m so sorry to hear about your Nan. I lost my Granny over 30 years ago and I still miss her, she was definitely one of a kind and I bet you feel the same way about your Nan. There’s a special bond between us and grandparents. I made Christmas puddings a few weekends ago and it brought back memories of Granny making hers and we all used to stir and make a wish. You never forget all those special times.
The next 6 weeks or so are the hardest time of the year because the days have drawn in so much. It’s dark when we get up and dark again before teatime. I know it makes me want to hibernate and my fatigue is always worse at this time. I always have an afternoon nap before cooking tea but it’s getting harder to drag myself out of bed to make the tea at 5 o’clock. It’s also hard to get out bed at 7 in the morning and it’s going to get worse before it gets better
I agree with you about stress although I seem to have a delayed reaction on this one. I hold it together for ages and think I’m doing well and then BAM, it catches up with me. Last year, I my mum died, then I moved house and then a very dear friend went to prison. I thought I was holding it together really well until March this year. Then I had two relapses back to back … The thing is how can you avoid stress? It’s always there and we can only try to stay calm.
Like the others said, keep coming on here and talking. A problem shared is a problem halved and all that … We do understand and we can try to be there for you
