Hi linksy,

I have to try so hard to get out of bed every morning, its so bad, that i need my alarm set for an hour before i need to be actually up as it takes that long to physically get out f bed and get dressed.

I have this site as my passing time lol. This is my excuse i need for rests. :)

hugs, kel xxx


hiya we are so lucky to have this site i have found more support on here in a week than i have for the last year. i suppose the only people who understand are those who are experiencing the same things.

hope you are having a reasonably good day.

hi it is awful isnt it when you get up feeling worse than when you fell to sleep lol if you read i could reccommenrd an e reader as they are so light to use i was struggling to hold bookks but not anymore mine was £89 and at min i have 41 books to rae on it plus about 40 ordinary books in the cuboard lol i will get through them some how if you want to know what e reader i go pm me we not allowed to advertise things on here now love to you diddle x


Hi diddle

the e reader is a good idea as i have tenosynovitis in my wrists so it would be easier to hold i will have to wait for my birthday or xmas at the moment though lol with two children they always need money for something what type of books do you like i used to buy the richard and judy selection just to try new things. I go to the library now as i get sick of sitting in all of the time. hope you are having a good day x


Hello again, I know that feeling in the morning. I feel like somebody has nailed me to the bed during the night. lol Slow days are just fine - most of my days are slow days at the moment but I do have good days when I can get a lot done so I make the most of them.

Reading is one of the greatest pleasure of my life as is listening to music. I can't read a book at the moment because my attention span is so short that I forget what I've read and end up reading the same page umpteen times! Then there are times when I am less befuddled and I get really into a book and read it in one go! What kind of music do you like? In my old age I have gone very retro and listen to a lot of 70s stuff, old blues and a lot of Johny Cash and then through him - I've got into blue grass and gospel too.

Other than that I play mindless games on the computer. I do everything on line like banking and ordering groceries so I usually have something to keep me going.

I hope you are liking the forum and have met some nice people on here.

Hi Christine I love all kinds of music i just click on you tube and see where the day takes me i found a load of sinead o'conner videos and didn't realise how many songs she did a really varied range from rants to soothing songs i use them to suit the type of day i have been having i have rediscovered songs from the 70's again from my childhood bread and loads of others it brings back memories of carefree days as a kid which helps on bad days. I could talk for hours about music nina simone i hope you are having a good day i have just got up and still in my pyjamas seems i have gone into a blip of needing loads of sleep oh well not to worry it will pass and i will surrender to having a musical day. thanks for the message you described exactly how i feel as if i am nailed to the bed it feels like i am semi conscious and can't open my eyes. I think i may start internet grocery shopping as well good idea as i can't carry the bags and it would probably save me money as well.

Thanks for the support Lesley x


Sorry I wasn't online much yesterday - took my Dad food shopping in the morning then comatose for the rest of the day! Hope you enjoyed your music day. I love nina simon too. I'm in my pj's still this morning. Waiting for decorator to come from local charity but looks like I'm going to be disappointed again! Christine x


hi christine no need to apologise i haven't been online much either i think the damp weather is getting to me. aches and pjama days last week but hey it's a new week so start off on a positive note and i will switch on my music tomorrow again.. Hope your decorator arrived.
