Re: Lu and Judith x

It depends on the recipe, but here's a recipe for one with real bananas in it: http://allrecipes.co.uk/recipe/8729/eas ... -cake.aspx. I haven't tried it because I really hate bananas, hugs Judith xxx

Re: Lu and Judith x

Thanks for asking. I'm feeling really tired and struggling to do anything - if I do something, like have my friend over, I need the next day in bed. The cats are ok though: they don't mind fireworks and are happy curling up near me. Take care, hugs Judith xxx

Re: Social skills-what does it mean?

Hi. Most of what I've found relates to people with Aspergers, but you might find http://www.succeedsocially.com/allarticles useful. I think social skills are about how you cope with other people e.g I know you have problems with "chatting" and you worry about going out in case you get lost...

Re: Irrational x 10

You can leave the skins on and put thinly sliced potatoes on top: in that case, I suggest you wash the potatoes well, halve them and part cook them in boiling salted water (about 10 mins). Drain, cover with a piece of kitchen-roll while the potato gets cool enough to handle. Slice thinly, cover the ...

Re: how to cope alone?

Is there a Citizens' Advice Bureau near you? They can give you advice, help you fill in forms etc. At the moment you have no income, therefore you qualify for free prescriptions: whatever is going to happen in the future, that's the situation now. You really need to get that form so that you can get...

Re: Dating sites = Abuse

Alcohol is a depressant so you're best avoiding it if you have depression. That's number one. The second thing is that maybe you'd be better off looking for friends rather than romance: widening the circle of people that you know makes it much more likely that you will meet someone special, who will...

Hi ooby - sorry I haven't been around much, but just haven't been able to do much. As an alternative, you could substitute a tin of baked beans for the veg (for the quantities you've given, a 15oz tin would be right). Hugs, Judith xxx

Re: Some dreams I don't even want to come true :( poss trig

It's worth trying for ESA - you never know. Your grandad sounds difficult: perhaps, rather than confronting him, you could write to him and explain how you feel. If he carries on hassling you, the best thing probably is to accept that you have different opinions. Do you have to go to see him? Someti...

Re: Everything's gone into slow motion!

Make sure that your National Insurance number is on EVERYTHING you send to the jobcentre - preferably on every page. If you can't get someone to help with your form, http://www.benefitsandwork.co.uk/employment-and-support-allowance/esa-glossary/1486-what-is-esa is a really helpful site: look at the ...
