Saying No.

Today is going to be incredibly tough for me. I know my brother who I love with all my heart, is going to phone up and ask me to give him money again. I am going to have to say NO! and mean NO! My brother is hugely important in my life...and of course I still want him to be in my life..and I do want...

Re: Despair

Thanks, no reason to be sorry. Even when i'm not posting or replying..I find a lot of comfort and support here. Virtual hugs help, and just knowing that there are others here who understand.
I am feeling much better now, i've not been on here recently..because i've been hibernating.

My Dad just rang..He was ranting about my brother's flat..saying he had no heating, a hole in the front door, and no means of heating water to wash either himself or do the washing up. He was on the phone for 6 minutes..which is a epic phone conversation...

Re: Out of the frying pan into the fire.

Thanks guys, I'm feeling a lot better now. I was sooo angry and frustrated when I wrote that post this morning..I think I even scared away the Jehovah's Witnesses this morning :oops: , but it wasn't intentional. I guess my brother was overwhelmed as he had lots of things to get sorted. But he did ( ...

Out of the frying pan into the fire.

My brother has been on section for the last 9 weeks. It's not just me who thinks my brother's behavior has become increasing more strange...probably not surprising given the circumstances. He was supposed to be being discharged next Tuesday. It's almost funny...he been sectioned and discharged almos...

Re: Compulsory shift system.

I think I was getting myself worked-up. I admitted that I was feeling worked-up and worried, so I had someone go through what the likely implications for me would be. We are a large group of people, all with our own different lives. :) When I was thinking in panic mode, I could only see it as a one ...

Re: How do I help someone with suicidal thoughts

If you have tried talking, and encouraging him to go to the doctor..and he wont . You need to stop being so gentle..and act. It's not because your son isn't intelligent or lazy. Your son is ill and needs medical help. Obviously I don't know how your son is feeling right now..but I do know that when ...

Re: Compulsory shift system.

Thank you for your responses, believe me they are helpful! I am getting more stressed, worried, sleepy yet irratible at work. My colleagues who mean well, try and placate me...with "don't worry" and "worrying won't help". I feel ungrateful for their kind words, to be honest, I fi...
