  • Thank you Bernadette I know there are people in a worse situation than me but I can't help feeling alone even though I got my husband and some people don't have anyone but I feel a burden I see my son a couple of times a week but other than a odd visit from niece or sister in law 2this year I see nobody I desperatley need to get a life before it to late I move from bed to chair that's it xx

  • Please try not to feel alone, but I do know know how you feel. I only see my husband, and I see my daughter a few times a week, but apart from that I see no one. It is hard, but I decided to take an open University course which has really helped. There are no groups I can go to near me, so like you I'm stuck at h pop me and at times I feel lonely and unwanted. But I keep smiling, and I know you can do it too, and you are certainly not a burden to anyone. If you ever want a chat just let me know. Keep smiling, and let me know how you are. Take care 😊 xx Bernadette

  • You will be fine, try not to worry. Let me know how you get on .have a nice evening 😊 xx Bernadette

  • I'm sorry that you didn't accept your telephone counselling call, T2D, as it may have been helpful to you and I know they have quite a waiting list. Their calls are made by appointment, as you will know, so I hope you can be fitted in again. It can be difficult to do, but sometimes we need to make an extra effort to help ourselves cope a little better.

    I wish you well. xx

  • I didn't refuse the counselling when the lady rang and asked if I was on my own and able to speak I just told her that my sister in law had unexpectedly turned up with flowers for our ruby anniversary I wasn't expecting her l have had counselling today best wishes x

  • I think /T2d did accept the telephone call it just happened that her sister in law arrived with some anniversary flowers at the same time, she was in a very awkward situation. She couldn't speak to the counsellor whilst her relative was there and she couldn't ask her relative to leave. T2d makes a lot of effort. Regards Lilian
