Re: Far and Away

Thinking of you and sitting close by @Sherry Heart


Re: Far and Away

My Mum wanted to call me Sherry when I was born. But when the nurse asked if it was sweet or dry she changed her mind. And so I got another name instead.

Re: Far and Away

Well she got her wish in a way by you being Sherry here Hon - makes your name here even more meaningful @Sherry Heart

Re: Far and Away

@Faith-and-Hope I suspect there are some feelings coming up for you too tonight Hon.

Love you both @Faith-and-Hope @Sherry Heart

@Faith-and-Hope Missing you tonight Hon - hope you are okay Heart

Re: Far and Away


Hi @Gazza75 Smiley Happy

Your welcome. I am struggling to get the words out atm. But basically just going over the same stuff that has happen in the past. It leaves me feeling quite anxious and uneasy- its not a nice place to be. Thank you for taking the time to write to me. I find it hard to move on and let things go too. 


I will tag you in a post that I wrote to Hams it explains what has been happening. I had a friend who has said hurtful things to me- she basically said I was a nobody or that is what her mum thought of me. I am not sure that is true- her mum has passed away. I asked her about it today and she said she would never say that but that is not my reality and it has left me confused. I think my friend lacks emotional maturity at times. 


You're right about sleep- I have had quite a negative spiral from the lack of sleep. 


I am trying to write it down but its hard because there are a few things playing on my mind and I find it hard to get my thoughts onto paper and if what I am writing makes sense. Thank you for listening..

Re: Far and Away
