Yep - and I want details.

Describe where you are - the room - what you can hear.

Describe every detail so the Hobo rail rider and I can picture you as clearly as seeing you on television.

You've got ten minutes to paint us a vivid picture of your now. In that time, I'll make a cup of

coffee...and Parayana will probably jump on a train somewhere....

...and type quickly...before the super-strength antihistamine kicks in :hug:

Rofl, time for coffee. My old support worker used to say the title of my autobiography should be Hashish, Hobos, Hookers and Hackers. Lol. :D

I'll sing - as a musical interlude.

I've battled demons that won't let me sleep
Called to the sea but she abandoned me
But I won't never give up, no, never give up, no, no
No, I won't never give up, no, never give up, no, no


Urgh! Out of tune....I'll let Sia take over


(the lyrics are on topic ;))

Mayfair, as a meditator, I will have to disagree with you, it requires training but it is really that simple. To paraphrase Mooji - "Your thoughts are like a friend that when you go out on the town with them you come home in a police car!".
Yes, all people different. I can't do this. My comments were purely subjective, and more based on myself. I think worth sharing thoughts though, that's why I use internet.

I think soul's meds have kicked in, so I'll give it twenty minutes to see if he comes back and then meditate. Soul, matie if your up in a bit I'll be around.

I think they returned his call...but he'll be shattered by now, after strong antihistamine.

Soul - crawl into bed, sweetie, if you're tired. Hopefully, your phone call has helped.

I'm around for another half an hour x

Mum asked me if her bff was alright and when I said I didn't know mum thought this was weird but mum never asks me how I am because she doesn't. want me to be well. Her bff was not alright but you couldn't ask, her face was as black as thunder and her mood was appalling. She's one of those people to whom whatever you do is not correct and is liable to bring on a rage from mum's bff plus mum's bff once hit one of her colleagues at work and doesn't like people going out.

Thinking about my awkward response to "what's up" at work. Sometimes I really don't know how to respond to that. It seems obvious that they would know the answer, with the fact that I am coming into work and nothing is going on, aside from that. But I realize it is a common greeting and that I am way too literal at times.

How are you today @soulsearcher, your crisis team seems about as useless as the one here in Notts.
