Jill, try first defence by vicks, I never go anywhere without mine and it hasn’t llet me down.it catches bugs in the nose and stops them at the outset...just squirte it into the sides of the nose wall. Not into the back because that hurts !
also clean all the door knobs every day and loo handles etc. Use a different towel and soap(I try and keep mine in a different room) clean your own knives forks and cups and try to encourage him both to sneeze cough into handkerchiefs and to wash his hands after the loo....if you have a spare room it might be good to sleep in there until he gets better
Hi Belle,Jill and everyone.
i now do a bit of reiki on myself every night and it helps...the other thing I discovered was that lush do a product called Sleepy body lotion ‘. You can get lush on line. I was wandering in just to get some shampoo...NEW shampoo which apparently renews you hair? But anyway got chatting to a lovely guy, who gave me a couple of free samples of the sleepy body lotion, which I spread under my nose and this works really well. I don’t think you can get samples on line, but only from the shop.
it smells wonderful, so I do my reiki, spread the lotion and dose off.
just wanted to say that I’m now on a change of treatment and had been feeling very much like you lot re sleep....also have had the McMillan counsellor...she is excellent.
‘’Lots of hugs to you all
Just popped in to say Helloooo. Nobody's here!!! Have never known it so quiet and since 22nd.
Are you all okay? No. Oh ecky pecky. Wish there was something I could do.
Rubes, I've just been shouting you on the fluffs thread - Here you are, causing trouble for husbands, you l'il rascal you!
Well, i'm just gonna have to send you all one of my big extra spesh Delly hugs then. They're very warm, long, and tiiiiight. Sorry, should have said they come with a warning for putting you ribs out of joint!
Lotsa love to you all
Jill, now that OH has flu, thought that you should give him a taste of his own medicine and tell him to stop his moaning and pull himself together!!!
Lots of love and hugs to all of you & apologies. xxx
Ohhh no, flu is contagious..... hope that you don’t catch it!!
Is your ME symptoms easing off? Are you resting as much as possible?
Good afternoon Jill,
Are you feeling better and calmer since morning?
I have been just relaxing, trying to stay mentally calm......by reading and listening to audio meditations.
Hope that you alright.
To do reiki course you need to find a reiki master teacher....so you need one near you. If you say you have bc, some will give a discount.
love. And hugsxx
Recently did a reiki 1 course....I'm using it on myself...it's really effective, I find.
still not sleeping very well tho
hope Belle and Jill are having a better day?HUGS,
Well that is brilliant considering the start you had today, to have achieved all that in one day is a big tick in the box for you lady
Sending you loads of hugs xxx
Well, had a facial this am and reiki this pm, but am feeling very tiredxx
am hoping both of you have better days tomorrow...sounds as if Jill has broken a couple of personal records today tho.
love to you bothxx
How are you doing?
Hope that you are having better days and sleep than us!!
Take good care,
Belle xxx ❤️❤️❤️
Am not doing well at all today.....been woozy the whole day.....just took my meds and have been just lying down!! Anxiety over the roof....
Ohhhh dear......sorry that you are not doing well today.....HUGS! HUGS! HUGS
Just ignore the OH for a bit....Try to relax!!
Sending you positive vibes.
Hello, lovely Belle and Jill.
still grotty days for you...so sorry,
i hope things change for the better for you soon
Yeah, me too....hot flushes been crazily intense.
Did asked OH about teeth grinding and he said no.....but didn’t think of jaw clenching....could be!! Does jaw clenching causes the teeth, gums and jaw aches?
Do feel like there’s something wrong with my whole body......one thing or another...obviously, the mental aspect is not helpful either
Not a good day for me, Jill
Slept little....looked at the clock every hour till I dozed off at 4am. Admit that I didn’t apply the oil last night..... just wanted to try the effects.....don’t know if it’s psychological.....
Been having a headache plus my teeth, gums and jaw feels tight and achey!!!
Been trying to be calm.....listening to a lot of meditation since morning.
Good afternoon Jill,
Hope that you are feeling much better.
Hope that you will be able to get some help with your week ahead
Sending you heaps of positive vibes and loads of caring hugs,
LOL.....Jill, never ever thought or wished for anyone to experience what we are going through...even if it’s for one day....
Indeed, we are putting loads of energy and efforts, hoping to gain some sort of normality. I admit that there are days that I feel it’s back to square one!
Thank you for sending me positive thoughts and empathy......likewise to you
Exactly, Jill....believe me, I am doing everything possible and I believe that you are also doing your utmost best! It’s really challenging., isn’t it??
Who wants to be ill? Who wants anxiety??
Sometimes OH statements or remarks do rile me up.....gets me upset and stress out.....like today, he said You are alright, there’s nothing wrong, it’s just a phase of life that you are facing !!!!........When I cry, he ask me why am I crying for!? Ahhhhhh........so it’s best to keep to myself ....
Hope that we will have better days....
To be honest, Jill, earlier on, I used to wake me OH.....as you said, he being the only one around and I needed the comfort and reassurance
Now, I don’t anymore as I feel that I am disturbing his sleep and it seems to him that I am not trying hard enough to overcome my issues......
Great to have a good cry......hope this made you feel lighter.
Dont despair.....we shall walk together
Hugs, Belle xxx
Just a thought and I dont know if it is something you have tried, but could you perhaps try going out with the dog walker, that way you are not on your own when you go out and if you need to you can go back home and the dog walker can carry on with your dog xxx
Having a pet can be very therapeutic...... but certain breeds do take up a lot of time and energy.
Do some homework before getting a pet....
Belle xxx ❤️❤️❤️
Unfortunately, I couldn’t get back to sleep as I was pretty soaked with sweat again and again and my skin started itching all over.....went to put E45 itch relief cream ....not a nice feel with sweat!!!
Been having the darn headache, wooziness and anxiety..... arrrrrgggghhhhhhh!!!
Sorry that you are also not having a good day.....not good having dark thoughts......try the positive affirmations!!
Ahhhhhh......the Hubs are having a difficult time handling our difficulties......I don’t want to even tell mine.....we will end up arguing and I don’t need any more stress.....feel alone!!!
Sending you loads of positive vibes.
Hugs, Belle xxx
Jill thank you so much for your pm xx
i had a lovely cat first time round, think I mentioned her before...she seemed to look after me! My q re your dog, was aimed at finding out if dogs too can give comfort as currently, I think it would help me a lot.
Ps I -pm.d you back too
