Something’s not right

Re: Am Not Coping

Goodmorning @Faith-and-Hope @Shaz51 @Teej @outlander @Snowie and all who pass through...

I only woke up once last night but managed to get back to sleep pretty quickly. I am still waiting for the new meds to work at night but I have had enough sleep to function today. 

I will be watching the football today - don't expect my team to win but do expect it to be a good game. 

Hope everyone hs some light in their day Heart

Re: Am Not Coping

Thanks @Zoe7  .... 💚💐

You too.

Hi Hon @Faith-and-Hope Smiley Very Happy

It is cold here today and we have had rain overnight - so our garden has had a nice drink.

I am watching a movie and then going to do some more housework before the football.

Are you going to be able to catch up with any of your friends today or will you be too busy?

Re: Am Not Coping

Hi @Zoe7

hope you have a restful day today. It’s cold and raining here too. Take care ❤️❤️

Re: Am Not Coping

Hi @BlueBay Heart

How is youor rash today - any relief yet from the itching?

Re: Am Not Coping

Hi @Zoe7 the rash is subsiding. There are still red bits and itchy but much better than last week. Looks like this strong cream is working. But I would love to know what caused it. My asthma is playing up. Woke up once last night. 

I’m taking today very slow snd easy. I feel so worn out. Xxx

Re: Am Not Coping

Sounds like we are both having similar days @BlueBay - taking it easy and slowly.

I am so pleased the cream seems to be helping now - you have had that rash for too long!

I woke up once too but did get back to sleep quite quickly so that is a positive. Hoping tonight I sleep right through - I am doing ok this morning - watching a movie and then will attempt a little housework before the footy comes on this afternoon.

Hope your asthma improves and you are ok Smiley Very Happy


Re: Am Not Coping

Too busy with family / house commitments today @Zoe7 .....

Gotta dash to get the kids up and ready for breakfast with sibs.

Will be back on and off.


Re: Am Not Coping

I will be on and off myself today but will look out for you @Faith-and-Hope

Goodluck with everything Hon - I know it isn't easy for you - you are definitely in my thoughts HeartHeartHeart
