Sorry is the hardest  word to say  and I am sorry for any upset in some instances maybe I was out of line I would like to be given another chance I am not one for falling out I usually make friends quite easily I am a people person

This group at the moment is my life line  along with alotvof people I live on my own in the countryside  most of my neighbors  are shielding so I don't see anyone  and my suport worker talks to me more  on the phone as he isn't allowed in my house and its to cold outside 

I have made a few friends on here and hopeing to make more  so here I am asking for that 2ndvchance

    Hi @lisathomas50, I was just going to bed when I noticed your post on my phone...
    I think the current ongoing restrictions are probably making a lot of us irritable, anxious and even impatient. The lockdowns are not "normal" and have been affecting people emotionally and mentally.
    Personally, I've been housebound for 6 years due to chronic illness and disability and it's not pleasant to be confined in this way. 
    So I understand if you feel frustrated. We all say things we don't mean sometimes.
    I'm sure the lovely people on this forum will understand. 
    Wishing you a peaceful night.

    @lisathomas50 I agree, it's an extremely stressful time we're having to deal with and not being able to go out when we want, where we want isn't helping either. Even more so for those that haven't been able to see their loved ones.

    I'm not the sort of person to bear grudges against anyone, that's really not the reason i'm here. I'm here to help others claim what they're entitled to. We have had a few members in the past that didn't like me but i think the friends i've made in the time i've been here certainly outweigh all those and for that i'm very thankful. There really is some wonderful people here on the community.

    I live quite a secluded life too so i know what it feels like not to have many friends, although i do have my daughters and grandson. So, lets start again, put the past few days behind us!

    It's been a very long day and i'm so tired. Night night :)

    Thank you, Lisa - of course you can start again. I also try to help people in my own way. I stayed here because of the support offered, & finding members so friendly. Goodnight. :)
