Hiya all,

Just to let you  all know I'm feeling much happier today, yesterday I was over tired and in pain with my knee as it locked the night before while I was asleep but feeling much better now :smile:

How is everyone? xx

    Im glad after a nights sleep your feeling more positive today. Sleep is so important, Iv got insomnia, and when your tired everything seems worse.

    May your happiness continue x

    thanks @susan48 & @thespiceman i live on my own but have full-time care which drives me mad as never feel like the house is my own, I never used to have full-time care only used to have a few hours a day as my hubby was here but even before that i just had carers popping in and out all day but no-one here 14 hours a day i used to be ok with it but now i'm like go and do your own thing and leave me be is that awful? i'm sure i will get better at it well i hope so anyway.

    Hello @Helenc44 Thanks for you reply.  Sorry about that.  No it is not awful. You are right and you need some privacy.

    We as a community understand your situation, I am the opposite.

    See no one for days , even months have been to. Try now to get out most days, my garden.

     I wonder if it possible for you to say to your support. Need some time for myself.

    I know that is not easy, I have been there with friends who have had carers.

    How to say what we want and not to be insensitive. They have a job looking after your good self, yet you need to express and enjoy your own private little space.

    Always a challenge.

    Please take care

    Am here as all of the community
