    Re: November Army Thread

    Morning all! Quick post during morning break. Well imo the only way to keep the thread alive is to post daily...all of us..I know I've done many a disappearing trick and am guilty of logging in and out if no one else posting..but as of now ..I will commit to posting at least once a day...for the rest of 2021. If we all commit to that for now..we can look at 2022 when the time comes....that a plan??

    Re: November Army Thread

    Afternoon everyone.

    Yes that is definitely a plan Molly and I commit to the same. We can all feel we have nothing to say but you never know what sparks an interest or strikes a chord with someone.

    Right better get my act together and go into work. Alarm guy was here at 8 am and is still busy at it. We had very basic cameras with memory cards so now getting the more up to date WiFi ones. Will be a break getting away from here. So far I have walked the dogs for an hour and a half, gone grocery shopping for the week. Made lunch for everyone, did the ashes and lit the stove. God I miss the days when I could light the stove and put my feet up and crochet for the afternoon

    Re: November Army Thread

    I'll try and post everyday. I want to make 40K posts (most of them drivel).
    I got my phone call from the counselor spot on 9:15am. I was sat on the settee with my heart thumping so hard I'm surprised you didn't hear me.I thought she was actually going to be my actual counselor but it was just an introductory chat to see what kind of therapy I need. Normally they're about half an hour/40 minutes. An hour and half later we were still talking. Now I sit and wait until they match me with a counselor that will be a match with me....................for want of a better phrase...............my crap. Ooops I should have said my issues.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.

    This struck a chord with me --- I'm 65 and except for the lockdowns in the last 2 years I have never had time to just sit at the fire and do whatever I want to do -- be it reading or knitting or watching Netflix -- I can squash in an hour here or there --- but I was always either at work or looking after small ones... as soon as I stopped having small ones I was back at work.... really looking forward to that!!! We are signing contracts on the house on 6th December - and 28 days later we should own it!!! Feels -- really real now -- and quite exciting tbh!! My belligerent sprog has even come around -- he rang me last night and he's coming up with the boys on Sunday (of his own accord) and for Christmas --- so yeah -- last worry over -- for now!!

    ahhhhh Jacks --- we'll get you to 40k posts if it kills us
    And well done dealing with the introductory counsellor! I do know when we aren't emotionally in great shape - anything like that can seem like a monumental hurdle (getting out of bed can be a monumental hurdle ffs!) -- hopefully this is the beginning of your turn around -- would love if you were here every day - but don't put pressure on yourself -- whatever you feel up to --- the 'every day' was for the other lazy layabouts

    Great to talk xxxx

    Re: November Army Thread

    Cord struck here too. Maybe that's why I liked lockdowns, fewer demands.
    Granted I have myself to blame for the running, but thats my headspace and I think I'd quite possibly be back drinking if I didn't have something else to focus (obsese) about.
    I will post daily too.

    Can that lady not be your Councillor @JackieClaire? She sounds perfect for you

    Re: November Army Thread

    Good morning everyone. So sorry to hear about your depression/anxiety situation Jackie.The right Counselling can often be the right solution. I do hope you find your way out of this soon.
    Hope everyone else is OK.
    Satz a dog sounds like a perfect solution but I couldn't cope with looking after anyone or anything else. as I need the freedom to be able to be able to go away as and when I can. Also dogs have such a relatively short life I couldn't cope with more grief or the thought of it.

    Still having the evening drinking thoughts but delighted to wake up hangover free each morning.

    Thank you for the support of you lot.

    Re: November Army Thread

    Good morning everyone.

    It is miserable this morning. Did not find out if I was working or not until 8 am (my job share partner tested negative but wasnít sure last night if she would be well enough to come in) hit the woods at 7.15 with headlight, friend and dogs and got the message I didnít have to.

    Well done Brit on not giving in. These long winter nights are hard. You are still very raw, be gentle and give yourself time.

    Enjoy your trip to garden centre Molly. That used to be our day out during one of the lockdowns. Lucky you finalising your sale. We are still waiting on stuff re LPT and there is commonage etc. not stressing over it at this stage.

    Going to do a bit more cleaning. Doing the Xmas deep clean bit by bit, donít have the energy to attack it in one go.

    Re: November Army Thread

    One day at a time..............eh?
    @brit..............you are an amazing woman................never forget that.
    @IamMary..............the woman that rang me was a sort of the chief of counselors. So they must have had a meeting to decide who's good match for me.
    I was flabbergasted when I got a call from her about an hour ago and I've already been assigned one as their website said they were backed up for months so its all been a bit quicker than I thought.. I should hear from her (or him) with in the next week. CBT was mentioned but after our chat with this woman decided a better fit for me would be one to one. She'll start with little tasks and as the weeks go by they'll get bigger.

    Believe it or not I got dragged out last night to a curry and quiz event at my friend's gym. On a scale of anxiety I was pretty near the top and on the verge of just sending Mr. JC. on his own with our two friends. I'm glad I went...........we won. Only problem was the prize was 5 bottles of wine.
    It could be worse, I could be filing.
