Re: Trying to stay Sane

@Anastasia glad you got to spend some time with your boy today... I'm sorry things are so hard for him. He is very lucky to have a Mum like you. Also glad you managed to sort things out with your other boy. Your a lovely lady 🤗

Re: Trying to stay Sane

Good evening to you lovely @Anastasia 💓

 

Its a few days since you last posted here, and I'm wondering how your Boy is getting along now.  

 

One thing I will say is that if your Boy is anything like you ... then he will be a very beautiful soul indeed. 😊

 

Really pleased to hear that what you found in your other sons room ... was not his.  I'll bet you were very relieved about that.  All those thoughts about yourself being a bad mum etc .. were totally unfounded.  🌼🌺

 

I hope you managed to have a fairly restful long Easter weekend.  Though I guess you are back hard at work today again.  Hope that went well.

 

Sending you lots of love and strength dear friend.

 

Emelia 💕

Re: Trying to stay Sane

Hello dear @Emelia8 

Thank you for your message. Yes I have been a little run off my feet. I saw my boy today and he actually looks pretty good. Still Si pretty strong but working on that and staying an extra week. So ETA home end of April 😔

God I miss him. Any way...some pretty "ugly"other news which I can't share here but just have to work through it emotionally and support the others involved the best way I can. Sorry it's vague 😔

I've gardened and "moved mountains" today, found homes for zillions of things that seem to end up on any flat surfaces, changed my linen including he cover so now I have a beautiful dusty pink and white room again, and I'm cooking a baked dinner which will be ready about 630. Then I'll sit. It's been a good day.

 

Tomorrow I have my naturopath for 2 hours!!!! A spoil but since my pdoc cancelled on me it is my mental health appointment instead. Can't wait!!!! 

 

What about you beautiful? Tell me how you are, and Holly? Of course your darling Dad too? Haven't stopped thinking about you. Perhaps tomorrow I can join you for a cuppa if you have time? Love you more my dear sister and miss you loads xox

Re: Trying to stay Sane

Re: Trying to stay Sane

Just calling in to say good night @Anastasia  and to thank you for coming with me this morning.

 

I am trying my best but it’s hard. I hope your boy is starting to pick up and that his admission is helpful.

 

You are a wonderful mother and I treasure our friendship very much.

 

Here’s hoping for better days to come.

 

💖💖💖

Re: Trying to stay Sane

It's my pleasure dear @Eve7 

Thank you for dropping in. I treasure our friendship very much as well 🙏

I know you are trying your best and yes it is bl00dy hard, I wish it wasn't. I've just sent out to the Universe for good change for you Eve... 🙏

My boy is okish. Depot starts today, little bit frightened but if something doesn't work then change is needed so again, Universe...

 

Better days ahead for all of us ✔️🌻🙏💞

 

Re: Trying to stay Sane

Thinking of your boy today and I’m sure he’ll be fine. I’ve been having that for the past year.

Enjoy your day my dear friend. ❤️

Re: Trying to stay Sane

@Anastasia 

My mothers heart was heavy when my son first went on depot.  It is a huge step, but may help with stability.  

With my son, he is processing family history around life, death and sexuality, all the big questions.  It is not in completely the way I would have preferred, but somehow he is integrating stuff rather than it being a confusing despairing miasma.  We reflect on scenarios in movies etc. Or whatever he wants to bring up.

@Eve7  @Snowie 

I do not have personal ect experience and am respectful of what I do not know.  My mother said before she died that she was grateful for hers. She had it in 1960s while I was in orphanages.  She was not good at processing history, trauma or MI issues, but still ... I hope you benefit and your families understand and support you both.

Heart

@Bow @Emelia8

Love to you both.

I am alright, quiet, a little stretched but quietly forward thinking.

It is so good to be among people who understand and communicate and share with consideration.
