So sorry to learn that you are having so much trouble and so much pain. Hope the chillies work for you and soon.

Christmas with your ex could be difficult but remember the other people there and keep your moaning to this web site. Christmas when I was a child were not happy my great aunt always came and moaned and complained all the time and I am still upset about that.

Gentle hugs.


Thanks Hun I will enjoy it my hubby is really ok we are really still quite close think he just had some sort if breakdown so anytime spent together is good just cnt stop loving someone after all the good times we had not one year was bad he changed my life when we met although it's changed big time since he left too but thankyou & I hope you have a good Xmas too xxx


I agree about loving people I broke up with a boyfriend of 7 years because it was not progressing but I did care for him, Remember he sent me a card when I got married saying how disappointed he was. :-D


I've heard of these creams with chilli in them, but have not tried them myself. Hope it helps, x


Four flights of stairs would stop a lot of people going out more often than absolutely necessary can anything be done about that for the sake of your knees if nothing else.


The thought of you having to climb 4 flights of stairs makes me want to lie down with exhaustion.

The capsicum cream can be good unfortunately mine was prescribed for my back where the skin was already very tender so I had t stop using it as the effect was too harsh but I have heard it really helps some people it will certainly warm your joints. Make sure you thoroughly wash your hands afterwards as there is nothing worse than being not thorough enough and then rubbing your eyes.

I think this time of year everyones brains feel like they are disolving.

Hope you have a lovely Christmas.x


Hi suwie

I am so sorry to read that your knee has swollen up in this way, and I genuinely hope that it is much better for you for Christmas. I also hope that you have a wonderful Christmas despite your ex being there?

All my hopes and dreams for you
