GOOD FRIENDS

GOOD FRIENDS

Hi Guys, me with three wonderful friends, who made Steve's and my life, so much more bearable, during his journey. We spent the evening at mine, reminiscing and laughing, over several(!!!) glasses of wine.

Thanks so much for coming, NannaB, Katiebow and Georgepa, it meant so much to me, to finally share that bottle of wine, that we often dreamt of doing, during the hard moments of PSP.

Lots of love

Anne

Ps, sorry about the quality, but it was way past our bedtime and George was trying to work the time lapse on my iPad!

Aww I love it!! You all look fabulous!!!!

I wish for all of us that we hadn’t had to experience Psp, but, if we hadn’t, we’d have lost out on some truly beautiful new lifelong friendships, all made through this amazing forum!

Thank you for sharing Anne, this has quite made my day.

Much love

As many of you will have experienced , it was often Heady ‘ s robust responses that kept a lot of us going through our dark days . Thank you for inviting us and yes it was a pleasure to meet up and be able to put faces to familiar names and no Marie of course I didn’t behave myself , ratio of three to one you must be joking ! 😇

Hi Doreen,

Kevin has had a challenge with Liz and the care facility, and needed to conserve his energy to sort things out, so decided to take a temporary break from our site. As we all know, Kevin gives so much of himself when he participates here!!

I'm sure he'll check back in from time to time.

Xx. Anne G.

Heady you look different but I think it's because you were wearing glasses last time I saw your photo. This is a lovely photo of lovely people who have made such a difference to our lives. It's also good to know that there can be joy post PSP.

Thank you.

Lots of love to you all, Nanny857xx 🍷

Thank you so much Anne for hosting a wonderful evening, dinner, bed and breakfast. I dozed a bit on the train coming home and then realised I shouldn’t be surprised as we actually talked and laughed (and drank) continually last night for about 8 hours non stop; and what an amazing 8 hours that was. It was good travelling down with Kate and staying a night with her lovely family and it was great meeting George for the first time and it didn’t seem like the first time as I have “known” him for several years.

Maybe others who have seen the photo and are able, will now be inspired to meet up with friends from this site who have so much in common.

Thanks again Anne.

Lots of love

Thanks Bev. It was a wonderful evening, was it really 8 hours?

And yes folks, meeting someone from this site, that you have been in contact with for ages, is just like meeting family.

Lots of love

What a really lovely photo. You have all 4 been on a personal rollercoaster yet have also been there to support others.

PSP brings so much pain and sorrow but also incredible friendships and support. What an inspirational bunch you are. So glad to know you through this site

Oh what a lovely happy photo. It made me smile too. It was nice to put names to faces.

The friendships made on this site are very special. We rarely meet the person behind the name and yet we all have such a strong bond.

Love to you all.

Anne, it's a beautiful photo! So glad you all got together. Funny how initially it's the anonymousness of this site allowed us to open up. Once we did the desire to connect was so strong and refuses to be broken. Fun to see you all in one place!

Best, Jayne

Sharon, how are you? Lovely to see you are still reading. Just been quite (!) close to you. Spent 3 weeks touring Namibia with a friend. It was great being back in the continent, not ready for SA yet. Maybe next year. Hope you are doing well.

Sending big hug and much love

Lots of love

Hello Anne, I still pop in and lurk around the edges of the site. It's tough to read some of the posts, and I find it hard to go back to those dark days sometimes however much I want to give back to this wonderful community. And yet this site keeps pulling me back time after time. It is a balm of sorts to be in a group that just understands.

Lovely that you've been travelling. Mom and I went on a road trip (our first!) in April, and we're hoping to do another next year to Namibia, so any travel tips are most welcome!

Hope you're well? Sending you love and a big hug!

Sharon xx

I undestand how you feel, struggle myself at times.

Love to give you some travel tips, email me when you start your planning.

Lots of love

So happy that you were all able to get together. I'm out of wine, so I'll toast celebration with a wee dram of scotch.

Dear Anne (Heady) thanks so much for a memorable evening, lots of laughter and sharing of our PSP journey along with copious amounts of champagne and wine. It was great to finally meet Georgepa after enjoying his country ramblings and funny anecdotes, he certainly lived up to the image he had created on the forum, definitely has a naughty streak. A wonderful time had by all and hopefully Anne and George will visit Bev and myself in East Sussex/Kent in the near future.

Love Kate xxx

Or was it just the wine, Anne?

Lovely to hear you are all still able to enjoy life after the horrors of PSP.

I’m getting there, slowly but surely. I still think of you all and how you helped me in some of my darkest hours.

Much love. Rx

Hi Robbo, I am sure George was absolutely fine!!!

Glad you are doing OK. Again, like before, we have no choice but to get out of bed and try and learn how to live again. Some days it's easy than others. I actually find my bad days, I am more positive than so called good days. I coast on those. The dark days I really push myself to do something. Like yesterday, feeling very down, so my credit card got a serious workout. Just got to clear the wardrobe now, for the new clothes to fit in!!!

Sending big hug and much love

Lots of love

Anne

Coasting is just the right word to use!

Thank you for the words of advice, Anne. I think I’ll put some energy into that kind of therapy. At least, ( hopefully) , there will be a positive outcome and also, my son keeps reminding me, “ there are no pockets in shrouds” !

Sending a big hug. Rx
