Hi there. Welcome back
Before I Reply I do find text spelling arduous to read.
Lets picture what it was like to be born in 1900.
Poverty worldwide, the Spanish flu that killed 65 million, World War One, the Great Depression. World War Two, the Korean War, the Vietnam War ....
I understand and accept the - out of our comfort zone- distress but we really need to acknowledge How lucky we have been for several decades.
Many people have not come to grips with Covid19. They feel jailed and are under financial strain. Well better to adjust to this new world crisis than to turn a blind eye.
Your message is a good one- seek help and try to appreciate what you have in life.
Welcome back, it’s so nice to have you here on the forums again! You've posted in the right place, looks like you've settled right back in 🙂
Thank you for your kind words, I think many people like myself find your message really comforting and uplifting to read. You’re exactly right. For a lot of us, our way of life has been completely changed and it’s been so difficult to cope with when so much of this feels out of our control. I think that self-care is often the first thing that gets sacrificed when life is busy or stressful, and your post is such an important reminder for us to be taking care of ourselves during these challenging times.
It sounds like you have been having a hard time at the moment yourself, having just lost a family member and also dealing with the diagnosis of your friend. These are two very major and emotional events, and it is completely natural to be experiencing the emotions that you are. It seems this experience has been really distressing and overwhelming for you, and I understand that it’s really impacting you even from the moment you wake up, does that sound right? It takes a lot reach out, particularly after being away from the forums for a while, and I’m sorry to hear that things have been difficult for you at the moment. If you’re comfortable in sharing, I’m wondering how are you feeling today after making this post?
Like you’ve put so nicely in your post, there is always support here. Please know that you’re not alone, we are always here for you. Once again, it’s great to have you back and please do keep checking in with us here and whenever you’re up to it.

Hi something missing,
Thank you for checking in, I’m so glad to hear that you’re feeling better after your previous post. It’s lovely to see that you’re finding comfort in music and by connecting with others in the forums. In your previous post, you mentioned that you were dealing with some grief and sadness over the loss of your family member and cancer diagnosis of your friend. How have you been coping this week?
When reading your posts, what strikes me most is your optimism. You sound like a very determined and resilient individual, with such an insightful and empathetic view on people and life. I truly admire your strength in getting on with your life, despite all your hardships. I hope you also remember that it’s okay to be feeling stuck, you don’t have to dismiss your struggles just because other people are also going through tough times. How you feel is also valid and important, and if you ever need to chat some more, please know that we are here for you. I’m hearing that you are feeling a bit stuck in routine in your life and that you’re longing for change- is that right? What would that look like for you?
I hope you also have a great day and please do feel free to update us on how you’re getting on if you feel up to it.
That’s so great to hear that you’ve had a good week! Amazing that you got some rain down there, I’m sure everyone would appreciate that much needed rain for the crops!
When life gets a little repetitive, I think it’s only natural that we yearn for change- though sometimes it can be hard to figure out what that change should look like. When I feel a bit stuck, I like to set small goals for myself on things I can do that make me happy, like starting a new hobby. I hope that you are able to find and implement the changes that you are searching for.
Thank you so much for continuing to connect with and help others in the forums. I’m have no doubt your support and responses are very much appreciated. Remember if you ever need, do feel free to reach out too- we’re here to support you just as you are for others. Hope you have a wonderful day!
