One week will the next be any better

Hi all

whoopeee 1 week today, so why do I feel so bad, has anyone else gone through a totally irrational phase.

Im giving my hubby some real stick and blaming everything on him, I feel like my body is about to explode, can't concentrate, cant sleep, hate everyone especially me and I can't see myself ever being happy again.

Make it pass please. send me a joke or kick me up the backside.

Hi Caroline :)

One week is great Big Hug you're doing fine

Sorry you feel bad just now but it does pass Promise

Most of us go through a period like this, we feel bad, emotional, irritable sometimes all at the same time this is normal as well but it gets easier in time as well just be patient you need time to adjust to this new way of life and it will be far better than the old one

Ok Caroline my dear, you asked for it:

What do you call epileptic lettuce?

Seizure salad.

What does an agnostic dyslexic do when experiencing insomnia?

Sit up all night wondering if there really is a dog.

I told my girlfriend I had a job in a bowling alley.. She said "Tenpin?"

I said, "No, permanent."

I went in to a pet shop. I said, "Can I buy a goldfish?"

The guy said, "Do you want an aquarium?"

I said, "I don't care what star sign it is."

I was in the jungle and there was this monkey with a tin opener.

I said, "You don't need a tin opener to peel a banana."

He said, "No, this is for the custard."

I fancied a game of darts with my mate.

He said, "Nearest the bull goes first"

He went "Baah" and I went "Moo"

He said "You're closest"

I visited the offices of the RSPCA today.

It's tiny: you couldn't swing a cat in there.

Do you still want kicking? I could probably manage that as well ;)

Seriously, chin up love, you've made it to one full week! Congratulations :D I'm really proud of you :)


I went through exactly the same, I feel really unhappy and just want everything to be o.k. again and find myself wondering whether I will ever be happy with everyone around me including myself. Me and OH have quit at the same time so I suppose he feels exactly the same just doesnt tell me. But I agree, giving him a good punch might help.

It does get easier in quitting I am on week 2 and its far easier than week 1 but just cant help wondering like you.

Heres a letter that Billy Connolly wrote with regards to chain letters:

Hello, my name is Billy and I suffer from guilt for not forwarding 50 billion f*cking chain letters sent to me by people who actually believe, if you send them on, a poor six-year-old girl in Scotland with a breast on her forehead will be able to raise enough money to have it removed before her redneck parents sell her to a travelling freak show.

And, do you honestly believe that Bill Gates is going to give $1000 to you, and everyone to whom you send 'his' email?

How stupid are we?

Ooooh, looky here! If I scroll down this page and make a wish, I'll get laid by a model I just happen to run into the next day!

What a bunch of bull.

Maybe the evil chain letter leprechauns will come into my house and sodomise me in my sleep for not continuing a chain letter that was started by St Peter in 5 AD and brought to this country by midget pilgrim stowaways on the Endeavour.

F*ck 'em!!

If you're going to forward something, at least send me something mildly amusing.

I've seen all the 'send this to 10 of your closest friends, and this poor, wretched excuse for a human being will somehow receive a nickel from some omniscient being forwards about 90 times. I don't f*cking care.

Show a little intelligence and think about what you're actually contributing to by sending out these forwards. Chances are, it's our own unpopularity.

The point being?

If you get some chain letter that's threatening to leave you shagless or luckless for the rest of your life, delete it.

If it's funny, send it on.

Don't piss people off by making them feel guilty about a leper in Botswana with no teeth who has been tied to the arse of a dead elephant for 27 years and whose only salvation is the 5 cents per letter he'll receive if you forward this email.

Now forward this to everyone you know. Otherwise, tomorrow morning your underwear will turn carnivorous and will consume your genitals.

Have a nice day.

Billy Connolly
