He is much older than her, and the relationship began in one the worst ways; lots of lies on the part of my daughter..

Home network safety in a share house

written () ago

I live with up to 5 other housemates when the house is full. A few weeks ago I got a notification from a social networking site that someone logged in into it and the IP address they reported was for my house, and it was a different browser to what I ever used. I was not using that social networking site at that moment.

the new me ow.

So, sorry to learn about your health issues, NacthoMan, and the impact not only on your finances, but your whole lifestyle.

I can relate as my daughter's had various health issues for well over a decade, and I work with kids with various health issues, disabilities, and autism etc.

I have to admit that I find it much harder to deal with my own daughter's disabilities than those of the kids at work. I have plenty of patients at work, but with my own daughter I struggle to have enough patience for all the adjustments that impact our lives daily. And it is much harder to watch own child suffer, being constantly in pain etc.

I do hope that you will have enough support, NacthoMan, and depending which diabetes you have, although inconvenient, it can be managed by food pretty well. Counting carbs is a burden, but it will get easier as you will get to know the food, and it will become your second nature.

Hope you will adjust well, and will be able to stay positive for the future.

Working with kids with so many health issues, was extremely rewarding for me and humbling as well. I've looked after a boy who had been fighting a brain tumour for over 5 years! It returned three times within that period in different parts of his brain.

It affected him in every way you can think of. After the first surgery, although successfuly removing the tumour, left him without the ability to walk, to talk, or to swallow. It also affected his sight, and hearing. He ended up in a wheelchair, communicating through sign language, being fed by a tube, on chemo for years, and the boy did not complain once!!! He was so amazing always considering other people and their feelings, often putting others before him, and always full of joy and making jokes. He touched lives of everyone who encountered him. So, it is possible to shine through impossible as this boy's proven; hope you will, too.
All the best x

For those of you on mental health medication...

I have never taken any meds for my mental health for the same reason. The side effects, and tiredness, outweigh the benefits, but for some people some meds work.

My daughter takes meds for her anxiety, especially when she has a panic attack, and those do work. Perhaps you should ask in a forum that specializes on depression; people there will have more experience with meds and side effects.

I do hope you will find the right solution soon. Battling depression is tough.

What helped me to stop depression some decade ago, was a Biblical Counselling book by Ed Welsh - Depression, Looking Up from the Stubborn Darkness.

Oh, thank you, @BA1 xx

i don't know what happened to the links, and honestly I don't remember what they were exactly.. I can't view them now either. Something along the lines of narcissists and freedom after dating them.

And thank you, i just needed to get the pain out of me..
Sorry, you had a similar experience lately :(

I hope i won't fall for another narcissist ever again.. but that never ever worked with me; so probably i'll be pouring my pain out some time again. But wish you all the best, and hope you will have that 'happily ever after' soon.. x

I'm a loner, but stupidly always think that im not and try again..

PS: Hope this one works -

Are you still being affected by covid19?

My goodness, that is awful! :((

Yup, & right now she's applying for MAID because of her severe & unrelenting pain. The medical system (& the government in general) failed her here in Canada, as it does many who are disabled.

I am really sorry to learn that @BigWilly!! I do hope that she will get the right support.

Are you still being affected by covid19?

I still wear a mask at work. I work in a primary school. Not only to protect from covid, but any other bugs. I work one-to-one with kids with all sorts of additional needs who have zero awareness of hygiene/safety etc.

And it seems that since I had covid in February 22 I became really prone to getting sore throats. (Sore throat was the only symptom that I had when I had covid, but it was the worse sore throat ever. I lost my voice completely, unable to make any noise whatsoever for several days).

Since September when the school started here in the UK, I had a sore throat for 2.5 months non-stop. Then it stopped for 10 days, and I got it again for a while, then I caught some different bug where I would have a temperature. I never had a temperature as an adult in the past 27 years!

So, not sure how covid related it is, but I had never been this ill before covid started.

I dunno if its me

I have a problem driving at night as well, and dusk and dawn are even worse. There are all sorts of car bulbs these days, and in my area there are lots of hills, so when it is a different angle, the car's headlights are also more dazzling. I also live in a rural area, so most roads don't have street lights.

I've just got a new glasses with a coating that should help while driving, but I have not driven enough to tell the difference yet. I'd done some research before buying my new glasses, but apparently there isn't anything 100% approved that would work to reduce the glare. You can read reviews for some anti-glare glasses online to see what people say. And if you find a solution, please report back! ;)

So i like beans.

Cregyn wrote:
I make a similar dish, @Lano. I just add chopped canned tomatoes and some spices (dry veg seasoning, corriander powder, and cumin powder), veg stock cube, and eat it with basmati rice.

Ah, I've just made it today. I don't add corriander and cumin powder, that goes into my lentil curry. This bean curry takes red paprika powder! Bon apetit :)
