Hi awrinkle in time. This is my first time of posting and I came on here as I'm feeling pretty lonely and a little desperate. I'm sorry you are hurting too but you are not alone and I am here for you. I hope you got to talk to someone and that it was helpful. I have been dealing with anxiety and depression for some years and I have that feeling that I just want to run away (not possible 2 small kids and a husband) but I'm also thinking about leaving my job as life is feeling too busy and too much. Even though you don't feel like it now know you are loved 🙂

Hello awrinkle in time..

Im sorry, I really hope that you are ok.. I didn't mean to make you cry....Did you manage to get some sleep last night awrinkle in time...it's hard sometimes isn't it..but we really need it..

Awe really awrinkle in time, can you try to eat something, even if you cut up an apple 🍎 and take it with you in pieces then maybe while your watching your tv show, you might be able to eat a few pieces....I've never heard of jack Irish..you said you enjoy watching it, that's great for distracting your thoughts...Well done there....

What kind of genre do you like..I like anything that about fantasy, dragons, fairies, Magic...

I certainally won't push you away, I'm reaching out to you to try to help you, and be here for you if you need to talk at all. I have major problems speaking face to face and I can't get myself out my front door most days, but here on these forums I can talk to people like you and be the person I really am..

I hope the rest of your day is better then earlier...

Kind thoughtscand caring hugs ...🤗🤗.

Hello awrinkle in time,

Thank you for your kind words yesterday, I'm really pleased to hear that you were feeling better yesterday, I hope your even better today...

Awwe, I'm so really sorry sweetheart about your shoulder have you been to your gp about it? Maybe they can help with the pain...

I don't watch much tv, as I'm easily triggered, so I try to read up or know what the films are about first. But I think it's tonight, a Jackie Chan Movie, I like him, he is funny, and the movies tonight is funny, The Spy Next Door..or it could be tomorrow night, I'm not sure. I'll find out soon enough I suppose..

I really came in here to check in on you and ask you R U OK? .....and to drop of a beautiful relaxing scented Lavender and mint💐 Candle 🕯...for your coffe table , there relaxing when you light them..

I'm hoping your days continue to get better daily for you..Wrinkle...(I hope it's okay to shorten your name ).

love and hugs 🤗.
