Hey all, im sure I’m not the only one who
feels like they’ve been beaten with an iron bar, all this prep for Christmas is a nightmare for those of with ‘hidden’ disabilities, everyone around me anyway, expects me to take my morphine and smile while I clean and clear out and generally wreck myself for one meal. My kids are late teens early twenties so they are dutifully lifting the sofa or fridge when told so i can scrub underneath. They think I’ve lost the plot!!! Owwwww fraggle bleep I hurt. Nerves are pesky buggers!!

    Hi @Darksoul welcome to the community! 

    Sorry to hear this, do your children know the full extent of how this affects you?

    Hi @Darksoul

    Welcome 🙏 it’s great to meet you today 👍

    Yes “Hidden Disability’s” are more of a “Hurdle” than “visual disabilities”

    Please please let me know if there’s anything that I can help you further with??

    Hello @Darksoul Pleased to meet you welcome.

    Thank you for joining and sharing. I do understand as I have an addiction history.

    Been clean eleven years from alcohol and drugs. How can I be a friend?

    I am one of the team of community champions who guide new members with information, advice, plus support.

    I know this is a difficult time for any body. Especially those with addiction histories.  No matter what they are.

    I do think if I can offer anything always here to listen .

    Anything you require or need relevant organisations to speak to.  I know I can help if you wish to.

    I have included the below organisation deals with drugs.  As you mention morphine in your post.

    Talk to Frank might be useful just a suggestion.  You re not alone with the issues around family.  At this time.  Been there so many times.

    https://wwwtalktofrank.com.contact.

    Helpline 0300 123 6600.

    If you feel you need to talk.

    The hardest part is to remain not stressed and find a way to cope.  Which is the most difficult part of any thing .

    Please take care.
