    Hope you get a good nights sleep & have a better day tomorrow :-)




  • Thanks bev,iv been downstairs twice to keep refilling my hot water bottle ,so on edge even now,

  • Hope that you had a good sleep eventually and that Friday will be a better day for you. Love Julie xx

  • Thanks Julie ,woke up feeling sick ,o dear

  • Hi meg

    Why do we do this to ourselves? We worry about something and it completely takes over, then our day is spoilt by us worrying that we've forgotten something and then we worry about that! !! Damn and blast this anxiety! ! We will beat it though. One fine day we'll get up and we'll go about our daily business without a seconds thought, and the next day and the next day and so on. ....... I keep hoping that day is today! !

    Still, don't put yourself down girl, take a deep breath count to ten and get on with it, maybe that day will be today!!!

    Hope you have a better day today anyway Meg. X

  • Doubt if it'll b today though,feel awfull

  • Hi Meg how do you feel now hope you are feeling better. Hope your results from your doctor are ok. You take care. Xx

  • Leaving in a few mins

  • Hope your tests are good. Xx

  • Got fairly high cholesterol ,so been put on statins

  • Hi meg , I have answered this in the message :-)


  • I dread having mine tested last year it was 6.1 the doctor put me on different statins but they made my joints very painful so I asked if I could try without tablets which I did and after 6 months it came down to 4.5 but the last few months with my anxiety I have been eating all the wrong things. What was your reading Meg . Xx

  • Hi cloggs

    Sorry for butting in but mine is high as well , I am trying to get it down without the meds , just wondering what kind of things you ate to help yours to come down if you don't mind me asking

    Thank you :-)


  • I was going to ask that as well

  • Hi why why I cut out biscuits I just wouldn't eat one I would eat the packet, fresh cream cakes, hard cheese and fruit pies. All those I would have lots of.i am greedy. I was told by my doctor that in the next 10 years I had 20% chance of having a stroke or heart attack because my father died at 65 with heart attack. I stopped eating white bread ate hovis oaty bread oats for breakfast and I drank a small bottle of benecol after my main meal. And just ate more fruit and veg ate more chicken and fish. I ate more healthy but as I have said I'm sure it's crept up because with my anxiety I have ate all the wrong things. I must try harder take care and thank you why why for your advice when I was in Hong Kong Christmas. Xx

  • Have to admit before Christmas I was doing really well & then slipped with all the goodies

    Even before that I didnt eat to much cheese because I am not over keen , was good having no sweet things , even though I still dont loose weight !

    I dont eat white bread only 50/50

    Eat fish twice a week

    Think my salads start healthy till I start on the salad cream


    What a mess really !

    But I have a meds fear so I tried statins & couldn't cope the fear took over but I also suffer with migraines & the short time I took them I was having a migraine every day !

    I will have to have another test in the next couple of months & dreading it !

    Oh it is always a pleasure replying to people if I can :-)


  • I allways get migrains with them
