  • Hi Rollie, this site is a god send for all these lonely nights of not sleeping! Hope we both manage a few more hours tonight. It helps to get through the day. Look after that back of yours, make sure you get some treatment!

    Big hug to you and Madeline.

    Lots of love

  • Hi Peter

    Don't often write on here but read most of the postings everyday. Unfortunately my Tony (PSP sufferer for over 5 years) has been in a nursing home now for the past year so I don't have anyone here to hug. Due to my own deteriorating health (I have lung cancer) I am not always well enough to visit Tony every day, but we always, and without exception, have lots of hugs when we are together. Hopefully I shall be up to visiting him later today so I will make sure he has a "special" hug and I will tell him of your idea. The nurses and Carers in the home where he lives are amazing and over the last 12 months we have built up an incredibly close relationship which always involves a hug when we meet. Tactile behaviour is very important I feel, particularly as Tony is not able to do much else and he responds really well when we share our usual hugs. I see your postings on here all the time so I'm sending you a virtual hug to say thanks for taking the time and trouble to put your thoughts down for others to read. It is now 07.55 so I hope I haven't missed the boat with the "hugging"time! Kind regards and take care......SuzueQ x

  • Hi SuzieQ,

    Sending you a huge special hug! Hope you were able to get to see Tony today, to give him yours!

    Lots of love

    Heady

  • Hi SusieQ, it's so good to hear from you again. I often think of you and your dear husband. I hope you did get to see him today and give him a big hug. It must be reassuring to know he is being cared for in a loving environment and that you have been able to build a good relationship with the nurses and carers. It is important to have hugs.

    Take care SusieQ.

  • susueQ well thanks for your input mate it was good to hear from you \\well mate you have had some rotten luck all round haven't you but stick with it mate I am sending a special peter jones hug for you today matey

    they do not go very often so it will stand you in good stead until you see your husband mate kind regards to him and you take care of yourself peter jones queensland Australia psp sufferer

  • Hi Peter, I'm not much into hugging fella's but for you I could make an exception. It's likely your day has drawn to a close whereas with me it's about to start, I guess I'm still catching up on sleep or have got into the habit of strange hours. Hope you knees have started behaving themselves again, with your spirit I reckon they wouldn't dare give you grief for too long.

    My very best wishes, Jerry.

  • Hi Peter Jones, I missed this post earlier but just read it to Colin and he laughed and put his arms out for a hug. I'm sending you a virtual hug to start your morning.

    Have a good day and hope the appointments go ok.

    Nanna B

  • hi nanna b wellmy day has just started it was about 345when i woke up but layed in bed until 5-45 then I got up and showered i hope you was ok after your drop of red mate it seems like colin enjoyed himself mate that makes me happy I am glad\\\ so see yer nanna b and colin take care both of you peter jones queensland Australia now must rush

  • Hi Peter Jones, hope your appointments went well and you had a good fall free day. The Rose did go to my head a bit as we had a late lunch but I thought I'd have a doze in the afternoon. Just sat down and my brother and sister in law turned up and 3 hours later, as they left, a friend arrived. I'd revived by then and do love callers so all in all with party and visitors, it was a good day.

    You are probably off to bed again now so night night, sleep tight, don't let the bed bugs bite. If they do, get a shoe and hit them til they're black and blue.

  • NannaB I have never heard the "hit them til they're black and blue part of that rhyme.

  • I'm not a violent person really!

  • My dear Sharyn is in heaven but I'm sending her a spiritual hug!! Jimbo

  • Hi sweetie,

    I've sent one up to my lovely Mum too. Sending you a big sqeezey tight cuddle too my lovely.

    JoJo

  • Thanks Jo-Jo I'm hurting with the loss of my dear wife Sharyn at the moment. It's been three months and things aren't getting better thus far. Jimbo

  • My heart does hurt for your loss Jim, I still miss my Mum greatly since she passed 10 months ago. I know it's a totally different type of loss with a spouse. Have you thought about grief counselling at all? I know it was a great support to my Mother in Law who lost her husband very suddenly.

    Warmest regards my friend

    JoJo xxx

  • Oh Jimbo, get outside and take a walk in the fresh air-she would want you to. I know you are at loss now as to what to do if you are not taking care of her. It does become who we are doesn't it? Write. Put in all down on paper. The good and the bad, even the mundane (if such a thing exists with PSP). I will be extremely cathartic and help you focus on the happy times. All the best.

    GC

  • Hi Gramps

    What a wonderful idea. I'm sending special hugs of course to you and Stella along with much love.

    Also sending a huge virtual cuddle to all our wonderful PSP community.

  • my opologies to,everyone I failed to answer to last night im only a one finger typist im afraid so if I missed you out it was purely unintentional I can assure you but keep battling on peter jones queensland Australia psp msufferer

  • Hey Mr. Jones, I think how you manage with one finger typing is true prestidigitation genius. (Did I spell that correctly?). Pure magic! And good day to you on the other side of this little blue planet! Best, EC

  • hi eastern cedar and mr cedar well I do not \ know if

    \\you spelt it correctly or not because I could not even pronounce the word mate so we are pretty even how is mr going along now withy hes word BIG I have that every week the phsio lady put that in the program especially for me because it gets your voice up another level as well as the exercise you get out of it but I do not think the other members of the group were to impressed

    because they had more exercises to do on top of there normal workload because she really puts you through your paces when you gp there every week matey I am the only one with psp the others have stroke and MS and general lasiness I think and me included at times as well to be honest about it you see I still have the good letter still but oi like this old puter mate oh are oh he argh that was my country cousin talking to you wekll my wife goes for an enderscope and colonoscopy on weds that's tomorrow boy where has this week gone to

    she had her main artery done last year the on the one that goes to ,the brain is that the carotid or cartoid

    she had all the plaque taken out she is much braver than i mate she goes back for the other side to be scanned to see if it is ok i hope so with me as well boy she has had her share well you two cedars standing tall like pines tell mr c if he bends down or does any exercise not to let hes nose go past hes feet if you know what i mean because he will lose balance otherwise well with those words of wisdom I will say see yer take care mr c im counting on you and you mrs c look after that arm \shoulder wont you don't go bashing mr c around will you or shoveling piles of snow although it should have all gone by now see yer take care peter jones queensland Australia psp sufferer

  • PJ, I wish I could give YOU a big hug! I love your attitude and I must say your Missus is a very lucky lady.

    I know you posted this awhile ago but I just gave my guy a good bear hug after a very rough day today and he fell asleep with a smile on his face.

    Best to you and yours
