^ You and your little family knew your mother best, you shouldn't let this person who clearly didn't care that much when your mother was alive to get in to your head.

They should keep their nose out of your business and you carry on with what you think is best, not what they want you to do.

^^ If it was that important I think your Mum would have told you. It sounds more like this relative's wishes than your Mum's, to be honest.

I'm not feeling too bad. I've just been for a blood test, which went fine. I may have some good news tomorrow regarding the work situ, so that's promising. And i'm committing myself to a family thing on Saturday evening.

^ It's good to hear that you are feeling more positive Rocket Spud


I'm feeling apprehensive. I'm going to be chatting to my birth half sister this evening but although we've talked on the phone a number of times before I still feel nervous. She doesn't feel like a sibling (whatever that feels like) but neither is she a friend in the 'normal' sense of the word. However, she's a lot more than an online acquaintance. I can't think of an appropriate word
I'm starting to wonder if we might even meet up someday. She knows that I suffer with social anxiety so that shouldn't be too much of an issue but I've got it into my head that I need to look more presentable first as I don't want to be an instant disappointment. This will require me to lose some significant weight. But the only thing that brings me comfort these days is food. Quite frankly it would be less daunting to climb Mount Everest

Getting out of the house sounds like a good idea and I'm sure you will find something that will suit you re volunteering. One day at a time

Thanks Consolida, I was also sorry to hear about your mum too, it’s always hard to lose a loved one especially a parent.

^/^^/^^^ Thank you for the support everyone.
I think I shall possibly wait a year before deciding what I should do with the ashes. Hopefully my head will be clearer by then and I will be able to come to a decision that I feel comfortable with.

I'm feeling just a little more positive tonight. I had a nice long chat with my half sister on the phone. Although we are very different in many ways we also have some similarities especially when it comes to our insecurities and wearing our heart on our sleeves.

^ Good to hear, Consolida.


A good serving of dread, despair, desperation for me this morning. Life isn't suited for this modern existence. I'm definitely not suited.

Anxious

Naturally though as I’m walking around Oxford Street. Because I’ve worked near there but haven’t had to stay in the area I haven’t really walked on Oxford Street recently. So crowded.

On one hand though I think because it’s so busy it’s easier to disappear in to the background so I don’t feel too judged for being overly anxious.

I hate walking in over populated areas though it does feel better sometimes as you can sort of sink into the crowd it doesn’t seem so overwhelming. I always wear a large coat and a cap so I look like I’m hiding away.

^Yeah I couldn’t walk without my coat zipped, well I could, but was too anxious to. At one point also felt like crying, probably panicking or something.

All right. I have Covid, hope it won't be too bad. It's causing some kerfuffle over our Easter arrangements though.

^ Hope you feel better soon. I've been waiting this week to see if I develop it after having some contact with people who were positive last weekend. But so far I seem to have been lucky!

^^^ lots of liquids and rest for you, choirgirl. Hope you're feeling better soon

^ it's going to be exactly how you want it to be. Take it on a piece of paper so you don't have to look up.

This long weekend is everything I've bloody needed and it's only just begun. I got loads done today and there's still three days to go.

Roll on a few months when I'll be cutting my hours and condensing my week (if they let me (they better)).

for some weird reason (I'm blaming the sun) I ordered a a chocolate milkshake today and I think they must have made it with whole milk because I've got a dicky stomach. Curse you whole milk and your evil putting dicks in stomachs powers.
