  1. I’m overthinking again. Why can I not just relax and be happy to chill on a Sunday. Is it wrong to watch movies, listen to music and perhaps make some banana bread. its wrong in my head, and I’m left feeling guilty if that is what I do.
  2. Made my day, you used the maple leaf of the Canada flag we are well into fall now, so its time to start consuming our maple syrup and raking in the leafs.
  3. Hey Cherryapple I hope you could feel the love and energy from this group, hope it ishelping you get through it
  4. I used to do annual reviews of each of my team. The scale was 1 to 5, 5 being the very best, 1 the very worst. I never gave a 1 as I knew what that meant for employees, I always boosted to a 2 and worked with the employee to help them get tasks they could perform and obtain better results. However I know that I was not applying the system as others did, not caring about the effect of the results. i was appraised using the same system too. I guess because I now live the boredom of being on disability, I miss to an extent the routine of a job. I know however I couldn’t survive for even days back in the workplace under the system you describe. For me the jury is out as to which side is better for my health.
  5. I am on disability and the cut off point is zero. If I work then I must pay the disability back, so if i try to work I will interrupt the system and give myself a problem with getting back onto disability. Sounds great until you realise how much boredom influences depression, and with no motivation….. i am of course grateful for the disability, just unsure whether it benefits my long term mental health
  6. Long term is relative to many…… long term for me means to the end, worth working for to overcome differences and ailments….. not sure everybody gets on the same page these days. i don't want to get hurt again, so I am almost paranoid about relationships, despite the loneliness that also brings which I cannot deal with either….
  7. It is optional and highly appreciated but optional. You can join and chat with any of us at any time. Don’t feel that this is a barrier, you are welcome, as are any donations to ensure this great place can remain open to everyone needing to chat.
  8. Since I started on Seroquel I have been able to sleep 12 hours compared to less than 4 before. I wish you find a balance which will help you sleep and get about
  9. Yeah, I think its wrong but as you have just described how I feel, then you are not alone. I wish I could pull out of this funk and do something useful, but each effort seems to leave me with further disappointment. I know there is a way out, I just need to find it.
  10. I guess I am just north of you in Quebec, Canada. Just have to make it through to june, lol
  11. Ugh….. its dark way too early tonight, And raining…
  12. I been told the universe likes us, and the universe is a ‘big’ like, so think about that, not the minions who surround and crowd you
  13. How about a coffee shop, eat a chocolate cake and some lovely British tea…. Ironic I would call it a coffee shop and not a tea room…..
  14. As a victim of emotional abuse myself, I understand that the support centres can assist in many ways but they prioritize physical abuse, in my opinion. It took them weeks roget back to me, but a friend of mine who was in a physical abuse situation was helped straight away. The fact they told yoy to call back Monday suggests that they do the same over there. They will offer talk therapy but wont move you to a shelter unless its really, really unsustainable. Thus I’m suggesting focus on your identified solution with the new place, and try to set aside the emotional abuse you are currently receiving, by distracting yourself. I know your mobility is limited at present. Hope this is clearer, my writing skills change with the wind.hugs
