  1. Past hour
  2. If I use the goats and sheep way people will still come here. If I leave the grass high the yard will be loaded with copperheads and rattlesnakes because the place will be loaded with rodents. So they won't be coming here.
  3. Today
  4. hey @duck Much damage after your storm, hope not. We just had 5 days without power from last weekends storm in Quebec, and there are people who may noy get it back for another two weeks. Sucks big time
  5. hi cent. Depression unfortunately does ruin parts of our lives. You are not wrong. If you have explained to your friend what you are struggling with and they are unsupportive then they are either not the friend you thought they were or maybe suffering with their own issues and unable to be supportive. I think you should follow up with your friend to ensure they are OK and accept some distance in the relationship temporarily. you will quickly discover the truth and you will know what to do at that point. Or chat here again.... Hope this helps you feel that you are not alone, and that you are reading the situation as would any other adult.
  6. Yesterday
  7. Goats or sheep are the answer, then the neighbours can only complain about the smell and crap, so they will wish the lawn was left longer, lol. We strive to have beautiful grass because that's how we think the neighbours judge us. Reality check is that it doesn't do anything except load us with more tasks to do, which could be achievements or unfinished work depending how you look at it. my grass is nice but inside, oh dear.... hugs to all whether you have grass or not!
  8. Sounds like you have no perfectionist neighbors who constantly worry about local property values and attracting the right "element." They're worried for nothing, though, since this area is full of grossly overpaid tech workers more than willing to overpay grossly for anything. Maybe this will change if this bubble ever deflates enough, but I'm not holding my breath.
  9. That sounds like my kind of place. Around here, I was wondering what would happen if I told the complaining neighbor something like "If I mow my lawn, where would I set up my sniper nest?" Most likely, they would call the SWAT team on me...
  10. Well we lose relationships when we're sick because everyone abandons you when you're sick in this world because they don't want to help unless they think we're really sick and we're about to die. Then in this world everyone comes around.
  11. Showered and washed hair, got some forms from post office, filled out online form, booked a viewing, called estate agent, collected parcel for new house owner chatted with my neighbour, tidied up garden, vacuumed upstairs and rinsed my recycling. And now, bed
  12. Most people with bipolar disorder reject help. That's the truth most people won't say. If we're going to call this a family issue they reject help because there are no options at this time that exist that help everyone involved so it divides the family most of the time.

  14. Yeah the only neighbor I ever really see is just like me. I saw her today. We both had the same oh no look and we head for the door. I've been here what 5 years and I don't have any idea what her name is.
  15. Hey gang, today's not so bad though sleep was pretty awful last night after my angry motor got running yesterday. I was miserable. I've been bit tired but busy and busy is usually helpful to my mood. Lots of bits n bobs to sort for the moving deadline (7th June). Just one more mow. Lol. Started looking for houses again and going to see one on Monday. I don't think it will be long now and I'll get one
  16. Yep, yep.... I've got a system which works for me now though....I leave wild patches for the insects so it's good for them and good for me... I also only mow the rest of it once a month which is a win win for all concerned
  17. I talked to her for a few minutes a couple weeks ago she’s really nice I don’t talk to her tell Tuesday I got a really good feeling about this
  18. Anger for no reason must have an underlying cause, sometimes atm we just dont see what it is, was your therapy apt productive
  19. Nobody will ever make you mow your yard here in a place like this. Two of my neighbors haven't mowed yet. It's common around here for someone to say the hell with the yard and sometimes mow it with a brush hog or some other type of field and brush mower a couple times a year. There aren't any rules here. None. You will never get a complaining neighbor in this setting.
  20. As long as we need to interact with other humans, this can never be possible
  21. Hello, I think with men who are bipolar and have mood swings like this you need to command respect. It is never okay for your brother to physically harm you no matter how he is feeling. It is a difficult situation because you don't want to escalate to police where force is used on him because thay is family no one wants that but you need to be very firm and establish his respect for you so he remember that respect even when he is having an off day. You are doing a lot of things to try to help him and it seems like he struggles with guilt. It would be better if he just respected and accepted all of your help without the need to feel guilt.
  22. This is really good advice, Also I would just monitor what makes you go up and down? If you go to the park one day does that make you feel better? Look for patterns and try different strategies. Generally, you want to find a balance between coventional wisdom.and what works for you personally
  23. Hi Cent, Here is my two Cent(s) The most important thing for having good relationships is good mental health. People lose romantic, friend and family relationships because of mental health. The huge problem and I mean really huge problem is that when people are down and out we tend to ignore them even more when that is probably the time when they need the most compassion and acceptance. Instead we are forced to wrestle with our inner demons and claw our way out of a deep pit of misery and despair which some people don't make it and some who do become profoundly changed from the experience. This is a tragic pattern I have both seen and experienced myself. Life is so easy for some and so difficult and bitter for others and it is difficult to improve your mental health when you are down and people begin to abandon you. I am going to try to explain how best to recover from this type of situation. The first thing is to focus on gratitude. I once hears a story about a man with a private jet, a man in a yacht envied that man, a man in a sports car envied the man with the yacht, a man in a sedan envied the sports car, someone on a bike envied the sedan, someone jogging envied the bike and someone who could not walk envied the person jogging. It is good to always be grateful for simple things and have this perspective. Be thankful for even having a friend even if they are distant, some people have no friends. This could be for food or anything, it does not mean we strive to improve. In my honest opinion, I think you might need a better friend but you should still appreciate what you have and you can make new friends and still keep the old. One is like silver, the other is gold.
  24. Okay well first of I would try melatonin and then as of paralysis goes I make sure I can breath and try not to fight it makes it worse I just try to think am okay I can breath and everything will be okay I used to get so scared and fight it it would last longer it’s not easy but just figured it might help best wishes
  25. @cherryapplez2020Sure I'm open to advice
  26. My brother is bipolar among other difficult life circumstances and disorders. My life is all about revolving around him while trying to hide the fact that I am, because he will feel selfish and reject help. So it has to be secret help, setting him up for success, even in little ways because the good small things build up. Sometimes his anger and moods get the best of him, he will flush the toilet when I shower, he will hug me really tight when I have a coughing fit, say something mean about an insecurity. But when he sees my face he feels terrible, I know it eats at him he goes into my room at night teary eyed to hug me and apologize. I am not upset when he does something out of a mood swing, I know it isn't a reflection of his true character, I wish he would believe me when I say I'm not upset. It gets hard, but I believe he can improve, I must be patient. Everyone works at their own rate, there comes a time when you must accept it
  27. I`m just chewing on ice cubes right now.
