Stress stress stress

my other half has just gone down for his operation we have been at hospital all day have a few times thought about a cigarette but wouldnt have one i suppose its a new trigger to face

i just feel like i wanna go and walk and walk and walk that seems to be how i cope with stress these days

i think cause wen i first quit if i was having a bad day i would go out and walk for miles till i felt better so its like the first thing i wanna do in times of trouble

the other day had an argumant with my teenage son instead of thinking right i am gonna smoke the first thing that entered my head was to walk and i did was gone a good two hours

well writing this has took my mind off of worrying about my other half should be back soon its not a long op bout half hour and nobody has come to tell me anything bad has happened so he must be ok

Hi Boo,

I'm happy to hear everything went ok, and sorry nobody was around when your posted earlier. It is indeed very stressful to be on those hospital situations. My mother was diagnosed with cancer last September last year, and I remember very well how nervous I was at the time.

Hang in there, and don't give in to the nicodemon!



he is back all ok phew

Wooohooooo. If you feel stressed again, just poke his sore bits :D

Hope he makes a speedy recovery.....I hate hospitals, spent far too much time in them
