    Hi and welcome. Well done for booking that appointment, thats an important step in your recovery. How old is your son?
    When all else fails, use glitter instead

    thank you for your time .my boy is 11 and at high school now ..its ment to get easier but its not its hard as he suffers with anxiety his self. which he does get help with ... I dint have babysitters so having some me time only comes once in a blue moon .
    i found writing everything down us3d to help me but im struggling to put pen to paper at the minute .. I wish i knew what has triggered me off and all i can put it down to is a bad dream ... I have been reading other peoples posts and its nice to know their are lots of listening ears out there which as made me feel a little better ...thank u 2 u both for replying to me xx

    Hi Zena welcome to DWD

    A lot of us use hobbies as distraction, whether it is gardening, jigsaws, knitting or listening to music, it all helps.
    71 and counting, less of the "Old" call me "Mike"
