We always read that we live in an increasingly disconnected world, each of us floating along in our own bubble.
I couldn’t disagree more.
I had a pretty traumatic day on Tuesday. I went home alone, tired, shaky, emotional.
But I wasn’t alone. For me, the online community has been a godsend, ready with comforting words and good wishes. Some came from people I already knew, some from people I met through social media, and others from people I have yet to meet, but would very much like to.
Imagine the same scenario just a few years ago. I’d be going home alone, fears swirling through my mind, facing a long evening of torment and worry.
Without wanting to sound too dramatic, the support I had made all the difference. Even yesterday morning as I was waiting for news about my mum, I had lovely messages on my Twitter timeline.
So where am I going with this? Really, just a quick post to say a huge Thank You. You all picked me up and I am beyond grateful.
The good news is that my mum was discharged from hospital last night. My blog has taken a distinctly depressing turn this week, but it’s not a real blog if I’m not honest. In other news, I will be trademarking the Stress Diet (TM). Not to be recommended, but boy, it sure does give results. In celebration, I have bought myself a rather large bar of chocolate.
Hope you can have a good rest now. Pleased your mum is on the mend
Definitely! Am a bit zonked today so taking it easy as back in work tomorrow 🙁
Such GOOD NEWS, say “Hello” to your mum. We are glad to here the news. So now you need to make sure you do not forget to look after yourself, as we no such stress, normally bites us in the bum later. PS don’t forget to save us some chocolate x x
Thank you! I will. She seems much better. Now the adrenalin has gone, I’m a bit tired, lol. What a week. And it’s only Thursday!
(Choc’s long gone, but can share out my mince pies!)
Phew, so pleased for you all. How frightening.
Without being nosey but will your mum be okay now?
We are having an extremely depressing time but today I found out my cousin is pregnant which is such welcome good news 🙂
She should be ok as long as she looks after herself. And asks for help!
So sorry to hear you’re having a lousy time – hope things will look up soon? But good news about your cousin!
The Stress Diet sounds SOOOO much better than the Swank Diet. Mostly because you can eat chocolate.
Glad everything is on the way to being better!!
It really does work wonders! I nearly fell off the scales in shock 😉
(It won’t last, meh)
really glad to read she is out of the hospital 🙂
now both of you need to take it easy 🙂 (and eat some chocolate :p)
It’s been one of the longest weeks of my life. But hopefully all is looking up.
