Hi bernie,
It sounds like you have life experience which would provide you with valuable skills for volunteering. And you must have done the best for your son, if he has turned out ok.
Hope you feel relaxed after being under the blanket for a few hours.  :hug2:

just got an email for borough solicitor to say he was on a course Fri, as my email did not deliver. As he was supposed to send me the Council's witness statement on Friday when was he going to do it if he was on a course? Anyway. just seen a job for West Lancs Skem 18 hours. Have applied for it closing date today. They are aware of my circs re dismissal as I applied for a job a few months back. Didn't tick the dismissal bit though as don't know whether the council will change their mind if I don't go through with the Tribunal. Husb says it will be just like you to get a job (straight away) as he has been out of work for a year now give or take a few months in Asda  and working for the Banks. Feel quite positive though. Don't really want a job, but then again don't want to be moping about feeling sorry for myself and depressed and we need the money now as all the redundancy money has been spent.

Feel sh** had about 3 hours sleep. Probably worrying about Thursday. Husband on a downer too as he has not had a proper job for over a year now and feels useless and depressed and is coming to me for advice/comfort!  :sb:

I'm shattered. Sure I had about 6 hours sleep as well. Been to docs for meds asked her to put back up. Only taking 1/2 at the moment but may need to take full amt. care coordinator not happy dropped dose. Been trying to work out what I am going to ask council at tribunal on Thurs. Parrot has not shut up all afternoon so I have a headache. When I went to docs some old woman crunched her bmw into so else's car. I saw her do it and she saw me but she did not stop so I asked in the waiting room and had taken her number. Don't think it did my blood pressure any good! Saw my own gp she seems genuinely concerned. Thought all these Appeals were over once I was dismissed. Asked me how I am going to get a job with no reference!
Also one of the volunteers at moving on rang me to see if I wanted to see their counsellor as I have been waiting since November. Said it was ok as should be seeing them in the next month

shattered again, only had a few hours sleep head banging. Going for acup and alcohol misuse counselling today. That will take about 3 hours. Should be looking at my case really but don't want to. Big day tommorrow. Well may look the part as I have not slept well this week. Had bad thoughts yesterday, only cause I can't cope with it all.

If you feel like life is a dark, worthless place, please know that you have just fallen down a hole and that impossible as it seems, you can climb out again, and see that life is really a beautiful place to be
