I just wanted to say two things –
1. What a absolutely lovely bunch of people you are. Your antics, fur babies and positive, spiritual, technical, medical, kind advice, love and support here - (which you give freely and unselfishly to all) has literally saved my sanity, soul and self. So a very big thank you to you all(other sites can be cruel, mean and patronising - must be all their pharma sponsors and ulterior motives ) you should all be very proud of yourselves Very
2. Secondly, I had to rehome my house cat and was heartbroken...I’m sure contributing to my depression.. so I took all of your advices and adapted and accepted
This took the form of making a few garden snails into pets.
I expected to keep them for a few days, but then I discovered just how fun and relaxing they were to watch; with their own unique personalities and characters.
A lovely lady recommended (hidden?) that I distract my self with creative endeavour, so I have spent the last few days setting up a YouTube channel for them; and feel a lot better for doing so.
The analogy is not lost on me - snails are considered pests and revolt most people.(it’s how I feel about myself and my useless body most of the time) But I have found such comfort in them and their funny ways - slow, leggless and pointless - they have nevertheless delighted and surprised me at every turn
To my utmost delight; I found that they had laid eggs (I was at my lowest point at the time). I also asked you guys for some advice, and a rubbish day became a bearable one because you were all so kind, supportive and understanding to me.
So I wanted to give you and them my utmost thanks, love and respect; and not hide said love any more (for you guys and the snails).
Here is my snail family if u are interested
Distraction and unconditional love is indeed the keys to coping, in whatever form that takes✨♥️🐌♥️✨
Thank u and bless every dear heart here
