The last year hasn't been the best I've had.
I've had two accidents: the first (a slipped disc) left me unable to walk properly - I had five months of physiotherapy to get me back to almost normal (apart from a numb left foot which may be permanent). The second was a car accident where I had to be cut out of the car...
I've lost my job twice: The first (after being there 16 years) was a company which went bust leaving me penny-less for a month or so. The second (I was there only three months) was an accountancy partnership which started losing clients the day I got there... I got a new job (temporary) within two days of the last one - looks like that will be permanent soon
My father has been in hospital 7 times, three of those 999 emergencies (911 US?). The last time looked as thought he would not survive. He is now home, but not what he was. He was 88 last week. We do get some help, but I am sole carer.
I have very little time for myself (or WC).
Despite all that, right now I feel really good and positive. I am calm, relaxed, happy and content. Thing couldn't be going better.
All I can say about people who think they are having a hard time is get yourself a new perspective. Maybe things aren't that bad after all: life is what you
