Especially mine but on their terms of course. I don’t know what triggers anxiety and panic attacks with me or my teen, sometimes it just happens. Last night around 10.30pm I had a tearful, shaking 16year old rush in, jump in my bed and hug me. I held her close and told her I wasContinue reading “Teens need hugs too”

Silence is Golden
Not all the times of course, simple pleasure comes from sound. Silence of the mind however is worth more than any gold. Being able to turn off the internal monologue and chatter, such a beautiful thing to do. To be completely at peace. I’m working on this but it eludes me. Eventually I actually endContinue reading “Silence is Golden”
Eeek, honest RNY post.
Off to see my new Bariatric surgeon who has been assisting me in the UK, Leeds, with the post operative issues I’ve been having. To say I’m nervous is an understatement. I’m unsure whether I will need another dilation to the stricture I had at my stomach exit, or maybe my current issues could beContinue reading “Eeek, honest RNY post.”
I took my teen out today, look round some Christmas decorations, garden centre, hot chocolate and sausage roll. Bought a few special items. I had a lovely time ignoring the sulking from the teen. The whole time. The hating the crowds. The sausage roll is disgusting. The hot chocolate was rank. The shops were boring.Continue reading “Moody teens”
Nordic Light Candle Holder
What reminds you of your Mum? For me it’s this Nordic light candle holder, not because she is Swedish or Nordic although she certainly could be with her green eyes, blonde hair and height; no, because she bought this for me and she loves dragonflys. So every time it’s on, and I see the soContinue reading “Nordic Light Candle Holder”
Cute moment caught!
I don’t think anything else needs to be said.
It’s raining, again.
The UK is usually thought of as grey, rainy and cold but for a few years now it’s been quiet the opposite. So the recent heavy rain has been a bit of a shock and caused flooding all over the country. My garden looks like a mini lake. Today is volunteering day at the RidingContinue reading “It’s raining, again.”
I’m not sure how to deal with this. When the nightmares are trauma related. There’s very little support for teens with PTSD. I’ve tried happy thoughts before sleep, taking control on dreams by telling her to see me their saving her, talking about them; nothing so far seems to work. So now I lie awakeContinue reading “Teen nightmares”
Or just blind? I’ve lost 6 stone, I’m now 13.5 stone but can wear size 10 jeans, size 12 tops. I’m still in the Obese class 1 category and my goal weight is 10.6 stone, which would put me at a healthy BMI and allow me to go horse riding at any stables. So farContinue reading “Unsupported?”
Gastric Bypass Complications
Can I start with, if you are at all concerned about sickness, fullness after liquids, not being able to eat; do NOT ask in the online forums if it’s normal. Contact a GP and request an endoscopy to rule out blockages. You see I, having chatted online about my surgery was assured it was normal.Continue reading “Gastric Bypass Complications”
