Re: Harassed by repair person

I'm sorry you were subjected to this especially at a time when you were feeling lonely. I'm also sorry to say that I reckon most women have at some time come across similar behaviour. Do you have a friend that you can talk with and bounce this off. J was certainly overstepping boundaries. On two occ...

Re: exhaustion provides no reserve to deal with stress

fuz_mind - I was coming up to the age of 60 which was when I would get my Government State Pension. I never ever planned on fully retiring at 60 feeling that I still had plenty to offer as an employee, enjoyed my work and had a social side with my colleagues. This was 2009. The State Pension is quit...

Re: New to Site; hello to all

Interesting to hear how you think the Melatonin works for you. My doctor asked me to try it and so to be cooperative I used it for the 13 weeks at his request. It didn't work for me, I hope it is better for you.

Re: Moving Mayhem

When I sold my home about 12 years ago it was at the top of the boom era. I had moved in with my Partner who is now my husband. I rented my home out for a few years, my safety net so to speak. Eventually I got weary of renting out and as the house prices were soaring, I sold. There were several folk...

Re: Power Plate

Views, interesting that you mention your husband working from the bottom to the top. I am a voracious reader. Always books, I rarely read a magazine. However, if I have occasion to when passing time in the dentist waiting room etc..... I work from the back page forwards. This is always and I've no i...

Re: Power Plate

Yes, I prefer text, can quickly re-read a sentence/phrase.
Often videos are much too slow.

Alternatively if the video is showing how to physically do something it can be very helpful but that''s a different matter.

Restless Dragon - I'm one of those who have used the cold water method of calming my legs when trying to get to sleep. We're talking icy cold water in as deep a bucket/container that you might have. The kind of cold that takes your breath away for a moment. Get the feet in and draw the water as far ...
