Looking after ourselves

Re: Supporting my wife who lives with Borderline Personality Disorder while maintaining self care.

hello @Determined , how are you and your family today

Re: Supporting my wife who lives with Borderline Personality Disorder while maintaining self care.

Yikes @Determined  there is always the one sensible one around who gets called the party pooper ... stings.

(And ain't it often the way that later on your safety precautions are acknowleged as being the right thing to do and are grudgingly appreciated.)

Not often is it acknowleged @Darcy 

That meme is about right... If I say or do nothing and something goes wrong then it is still my fault because I should have done something. 

So often it could go so much smoother if I had some support rather than opposition.

Perhaps I should rephrase to "On rare occasions (and sometimes only after a horrrendous story in the news) ....."

Re: Supporting my wife who lives with Borderline Personality Disorder while maintaining self care.

Doing ok @Darcy 

Children all on holidays now.

Went for a bike ride by myself yesterday and spent today in the boat just me and all my friends 😊

Managed to bag enough fish for a meal was a bonus 😁

Trust all is well for you.
