    hi all, just a brief PS to everything thats happened.
    My health has gone sour, due to stress and stuff I put aside while loking after mum but I am getting help with it.
    I got a solicitor over the house and today the council caved in and the house is now in my name :D
    Now I am looking forward to building a life and giving myself a proper time to reflect, I will still be around and still read the boards

    hugs to all

    David

    Hi David,

    I don't post often but read other people's posts all the time. Sorry to hear your health has suffered, glad you are getting help, SO pleased you have the house in your name now. Good luck and take care and stay with TP.

    David, so good to hear from you. Sorry that your own health has been suffering, not surprising really, but so pleased to read the news about your home. Take care of yourself, and take some time to just maybe enjoy some 'me' space.

    Big hug, love Connie

    Hi David

    I did wonder what was happening & whether you still had a roof over your head, as I'm sure many other TP'ers did too.
    Thank goodness sanity has at last prevailed and you have your house, and can begin to get back to something approaching a normal life again. Isn't it silly, I don't really "know" anyone here, but I feel so relieved for you, as I do when any of our select group achieve something, seemingly against all odds! Why does life have to be so bloody, when we have enough to cope with already for goodness sake!!

    I know you'll be welcomed back anytime (even though AD must be something you'd rather forget about)
    Good Luck & God bless
    - today's the first day of the rest of your life, as they used to say in the old hippy days.

    Great news!

    Now take things slowly, build yourself back up and at the end of all this, you will find you have a new respect for yourself, for what you have accomplished throughout.

    Nice to have some good news!

    They couldn't have put it better, David. From now, every day, do at least one thing that's just for you. Not only do you deserve it, but it will make you feel so much better - and stronger.

    Lots of luck - and lots of happiness too.

    In life we get many opportunities for a "do over". I hope this is your time to "do" whatever your heart desires.

    And speaking of "being done over" ...

    I've just been made redundant at 56. What Fun! :rolleyes: Troubles never come singly, do they.

    Oh Lynne, I'm so sorry ...

    That's awful :-( Throw all the cushions round the room, call them every name under the sun and swear about them for paragraph after paragraph on here if you want to.

    And then tomorrow morning, tell yourself you're worth more than they obviously thought and that you deserve better. (You do.)

    This happened to me last July just as everything was starting to go pear-shaped with my Mum, and it felt really devastating at the time. Just when I really felt like I wasn't coping, all of a sudden I really wasn't. Not to say you won't feel stronger, but it will get better - and I hope that it does really soon.

    Lots of love, and a big digital hug -

    Dave

    I am so pleased that youy have managed to keep your home, hope you get better really soon and have many happy times ahead of you.

    Lynne

    Poor you, both my Dad and my husband were made redundant in the past, both went on to new jobs and looking back, redundancy was the best thing that could have happened to them. I sincerely hope it will turn out to be the same for you too.
