Three days not smoking! Thanks to all you 'good guys'! Nicorette gum (5 a day: now a sore on the tip of my tongue). So, gave in to an e.cig. Yes, finally. Viewing it as interim. Would be really grateful for some information on that which, frankly, is what this site should be about. Not dealing with bullies. Health matters, eh. Fortunately, didn't hear from the 'bad guys' which would have been a bit annoying because I would have closed down my account had I done so. And, no, I'm not joking.
Avidly avoiding people on the tube/bus who are coughing. I think I'm looking like a complete nutcase, moved seats this morning and left a seat to stand on a packed bus this evening. But, frankly, don't care what people think. Anything to avoid catching someone's horrible bug and have it develop into something awful... Dreading the onset of Bronchitis or something more sinister. Crossing fingers and constantly moving seats (oh, and, covering my mouth up with my huge black scarf!).
By the way, I'm fantastically unaware to the bullying so many people have mentioned and was so shocked to read what goes on for so many people. Please, all of you guys, look out for it. Newcomers need to feel welcome (and I know you all know that - given your response to me - but... it shouldn't be happening anywhere, not least on a site like this.
Anyway, off to bed. Work beckons again tomorrow. Slightly irritated. Work normally two days a week. Worryingly been built up to three days over the past couple of months... Arrived home this evening to a cold house (boiler packed up, apparently); rats in the bloody loft and 16 year old daughter with homework needing to be printed out and printer not going on line. Ugh.
