I'm keeping everything crossed I seriously need a breeze , been advised today to get a dehumidifier and quickly it will make inside the house better for oxygen and less humidity in the house .

Hope you can sort quickly and not too expensive Dave

Somehow I can't really see it but I live in hope , this heat is causing problems with the Greeks aswell, too hot to be outside and just as bad inside

Daveyboy1963 in reply to madonbrew

Today as been a bad day and I just feel like I have hit rock bottom this heat making matters worse obviously . In a lot of pain today something I rarely talk about but I had some morphine to help something I don't like having to use . I'm getting to the stage where it's harder to cope with everything that is going on and you feel like throwing in the towel I sat this evening thinking what would it truly matter if I was here or not . It's a fine balancing act mentally and getting harder. I'm sure we all have these days but being here no family around and my health just draining away it's worse than being on a cheap rollercoaster ride. Hoping tomorrow is better for us all , 👍🏼👍🏼😬

madonbrew profile image
madonbrew in reply to Daveyboy1963

Dear Dave,Sorry today is feeling so crappy! Even though you don’t like taking the morphine, I’m glad you at least have access to it when you need it for times like now!

Days like that are hard to bare! I find the mental anguish worse to cope with than the physical stuff lots of the time. I understand the dark thoughts. You really are a valuable human being though who offers even us here, who you’ve never met, encouragement with your passion for you recipe creations, beauty through the photos that you share with us of serenity in a world that’s fraught. You have purpose so don’t chuck your battery out your cheap watch yet!

Daveyboy1963 profile image
Daveyboy1963 in reply to madonbrew

Think the mainspring in the watch is broken 😂 I keep going even though it gets harder . For me even with the beauty around me it's the pure emptiness, like you said it's not the physical stuff I can pretty much deal with that it's the fact Im here alone sharing a space with a shadow . Thanks for truly understanding where I'm coming from. And the cheap watch jibbs 😂👍🏼

madonbrew profile image
madonbrew in reply to Daveyboy1963

Dave…even when you feel like that, you find & see the funny side! Any good jewellers about to sort out that mainspring???

Seriously, a man with a shadow is better than a man without one!…sorry was supposed to be being serious!

Yea I guess it must feel pretty lonely sometimes! Please remember you’re not really alone though! Us lot here are here and I have made some really good friends with people from this forum! We get it…each to varying degrees, but it’s a safe place to be with friends!

Daveyboy1963 profile image
Daveyboy1963 in reply to madonbrew

I know the world is a scary place right now and difficult to find a safe place to be. Even my shadow agreed with that it's under the bed right now 😅 I guess for me it's the fact when things get bad it's comforting to hold on to someone. The night my stepfather passed away he held my hand and looked at me and guess had comfort he wasn't alone .

That is beautiful. You can come and take the breeze from here and give us a little bit of your sun. That will cool you down a bit. It’s quite dull here today. No sun and breezy.

How are you this morning?

Daveyboy1963 profile image
Daveyboy1963 in reply to Mavary

No sleep last night too hot no air and really hot today even in the shade locked the door and limping around the house nude and still hot 😂😂🙂🙂🙂

Mavary profile image
Mavary in reply to Daveyboy1963

I hope you don’t get visitors walking in. 😹🤣The trouble is there’s no getting away from it is there. Would you be cooler on the sea front? Maybe find a shady spot there. Water always seems to make it cooler. That’s if you are able to get there.

Daveyboy1963 profile image
Daveyboy1963 in reply to Mavary

I've locked the door and my shutters are closed 😂😂, it would be the walk to the beach that would kill me. Plus I'm on crutches. My friend is coming to pick me up in the morning so I can have a swim 😂😂

Mavary in reply to Daveyboy1963

Brilliant! That will cool you down for a few minutes. Have you go a scooter you can use to get down there.

Daveyboy1963 profile image
Daveyboy1963 in reply to Mavary

Didn't get my swim unfortunately, I had a extremely bad night and pretty much all day today been the same . Breathing problems to the max . Feeling so fed up with it still sat outside with another JD trying to make sense of everything. Hope you have had a good day 👍🏼

Mavary profile image
Mavary in reply to Daveyboy1963

I don’t think I would breathe in that heat. It’s bad enough over here and it’s nowhere as hot as Greece.

Daveyboy1963 profile image
Daveyboy1963 in reply to Mavary

It's totally unbearable day and night and it is not normal it really is like being in hell

Mavary profile image
Mavary in reply to Daveyboy1963

I’m sure it is. I had a brother in law who lived in Athens and they used to go away for the summer as it was so hot. They said it was unbearable in the summer. I don’t know how they stick it with all the buildings around in Athens. Is it a stone built place you live in. That’s much cooler than the modern ones.

Daveyboy1963 profile image
Daveyboy1963 in reply to Mavary

No it's concrete unfortunately and even though we'll ventilated the heat outside is so intense you cook inside and out. White buildings reflect the heat but when their all white they reflect on each other. It's 39 degree tonight no breeze

Mavary profile image
Mavary in reply to Daveyboy1963

You can’t really get away from it can you?

Daveyboy1963 profile image

No . In hospital at moment I collapsed on way home , 02 levels crashed to 82 blacked out in street . So on oxygen in hospital and being monitored.

Mavary in reply to Daveyboy1963

Oh Davey! I’m so sorry. I hope they’ve got some nice air conditioning in there for you. Maybe you should stay for the rest of the summer. 🤣. Just joking. I hope you are back home soon.

I hope it is cooling down a bit now Dave. I read yours and Madonbrews comments and totally agree with her. Although i would add although i have a husband and kuds nearby, sometimes i feel so so lonely.

Hoping you have had a skightly better day, did your friend take you for a swim 🏄‍♂️🏊‍♂️🐋🤽‍♂️

Daveyboy1963 profile image
Daveyboy1963 in reply to Suzie42

I didn't get for my swim I had a bad night, in honesty as each day goes by it feels like it is just one less and there are days when I long for it to all be over but I guess we all feel that way sometimes. I keep ticking though 😂

Suzie42 profile image
Suzie42 in reply to Daveyboy1963

Yes i know what you mean. I have been through it the last 8 weeks and now have the threat of going into hospital to sort me out tom. My list of ailments is getting ridiculous now and feel what is the point sometimes. I think struggling breathing must be amongst the worse Dave, but you manage to brighten our days with your cooking and sunset pictuures. Keep going even if its for all of us on HU and don't forget you have many wonderful friends in Rhodes 😊
