Holiday

Sunday, July 06, 2014

We have just come back from a weeks holiday in Torquay(for the Americans it is on the South coast of England) and we had a great week. the hotel, food, weather and the coach company were all good. We visited Plymouth, Exeter, several beautiful churches, had a ride on a steam train, visited Agatha Chisties holiday home, a model Village and several great museums.
The only problem was the taxi coming home they forgot about us and another couple but a quick phone call solved the problem.
I did eat loads but don't think I have put on to much weight but will see tomorrow at the gym.
I did worry that the holiday would not come off as Michael was not good the week before but I kept say that I would not cancel the holiday so would go on my own if needs be.

    So glad you've had such a wonderful time. Maybe you need to be a bit more firm with Michael in the future. lol

Holiday

Saturday, June 14, 2014

Not really sure what to say as every time I am on here I seem to be moaning but I am usually a happy sort of person, I don't seem to be coping as well as I use to.
My main problem is Michael's mental health is my main problem as find I get tired so easily now and he takes a lot out of me, also when he is like this I get nothing back from him,
I had a melt down a couple of weeks ago when a friend let me down over a ticket(London trip) that I thought that I had sold her, the next time I saw her I had a real go at her(it was at my art group) and I still feel bad about it.
We are due to go on holiday in a couple of weeks and I have been told by a support worker and Michael's CPN that I must go for the sake of my own health, it is a Sunday to Saturday holiday which I am really looking forward to.

    When you are on an airplane, and there are difficulties and the oxygen masks come down, you are supposed to fit your own on first before you can take care of someone else.

Don't be reluctant to feed and lift up yourself FIRST! You will be a lot more able to take care of him if you enrich YOURSELF first. Being the responsible one is hard work!

    Hi Elaine; emoticon emoticon

So happy to hear your continuing on with your holiday plans. I understand that Michael gets you down & wears you out, yet as I've told you in my letters You have to keep doing things for yourself, You have a life to live, You deserve to be happy.

Take care & be well, continue to do things that make you happy, life is for living being down all the time is a waste of life.

Many Blessings Always Debby

Good Times

Sunday, May 25, 2014

I have 2 brilliant days out in the last week the first was to Bakewell on Monday and the weather was very hot, I love to walk around the market, I also went up to the small museum and the church.
My 2nd trip was to London yesterday, we did have some heavy rain on the way down and a couple of showers while there but it did not spoil the day, me and a friend went to Camden Market(a little disappointing as there was a lot of new age type stalls) but I was pleased I went, we then went to Covent Garden and had a wonder round but did not buy anything as it was too expensive, we then went to Trafalgar Square and had a look at the Church and the galleries.
The only problem was coming home as there was a problem with the M1 so we came back to Nottingham via the M40 and Birmingham.
I am doing quite well with my weight and last week I lost 2 pounds( I did a lot of walking) so may not do so well this week but I am feeling positive.

To my friends

Friday, May 09, 2014

I had what was to be my last counseling session today but it has been extended by one week which is good.
I have not lost any weight, well I did but then I put it back on but at least it it is still a lot less than I was, I am trying my best to stay on track but it is not easy as I feel so low and very stressed, I am trying to stay positive so I keep telling myself that I will lose it.
Michael was up for nearly 10 weeks so it is even more disappointing that once again he is very depressed once again and it is so near to our holiday which has to be paid for in the next few weeks or we will lose our place. I do have two day trips coming up one to Bakewell and the other is to London but it is not an holiday and I so desperately need it.

    It sounds like Michael's return to depression has taken more out of you than normal this time, probably because he's been so much better for longer. I hope nothing stops you from going on your holiday but make sure you enjoy your two day trips. I know you like going to Bakewell, it is a lovely place.

    We are cheering you on. Keep hanging in there and do as many nice things for yourself as you can.

I am pretty low energy when at home, but on trips I have plenty of energy all day. It makes such a big difference for me.

Praying that you can lift your spirits and your husband's too.

Meal out

Thursday, April 24, 2014

We had a meal out yesterday of fish chips and mushy peas which was lovely, we usually go to a cafe run by Mencap and some of the services users serve in the cafe.
We then went to see Dial M for Murder which was very good.
I hope that you understand that it is just a slight blip in my diet plans as I am still very determined to get there but probably later rather than sooner.
Thank you for all the support.

    i love raw peas fresh from my garden. sometime the occasional meal out is still part of a healthy eating plan. as long as you remember portions and stop eating when you are full or dont like it.
