Hope your feeling better ow fairie. And your son to. I know its hard having others rely on you and having to put others first all the time. I do it aswell.
Good luck if you do try the soup diet. It was nice to begin with but gets sickly after a couple of days. Just dont eat a whopper like i did when you finish lol :lol:

Hi Fay - you are such a great mum and I'm sure your son really appreciates all the support you give him. I can only imagine how hard and stressful it must be to have someone you care so much about live with bi-polar and depression :(

And good on you for not turning to food as a comfort. Come and vent with us or take it out on the pavement with a brisk walk around the block. :)
Just keep moving! And don't be lazy...

Thanks Tanya & Milkyway, I would love to go for a walk but I can't leave him on his own. I can't get him into his Doc for another hour yet so I'm just trying to keep him calm but it's like talking to a brick wall. I know I will either have to take him to the Hospital as he is so dehydrated he will need a drip or he may need to be admmitted to the Mental Health Hospital. They won't put him on a disability pension because they say he doesn't fit the criteria and are making him look for work. Hello!! he has problems even looking after himself so who would want to give him a job?

Anyway I can see the rest of the day and into the night will be spent at a Hospital. :x

Can I just scream yet and go and find somewhere to hide.

I hate centrelink! they think that mental illnesses arnt classed as proper illnesses. i know coz i had heaps of problems with them. I found the only way i could get better was to want to get better. I hope your son gets some help at the doctors or the hospital and you can cope fairie. I know how stressed you must be feeling. :(

Hey fay you are a wonder mum your son is very lucky to have a mum like you. I have a very close freind that suffers the same thing at time it does get tough I support her & help my friend out when is needed. It does suck that plans get rouined but on the bright side being at the hospitial is the best place for you son to get the right medication & teament that is needed. I hate centrelink aswell I dont understand the system somtimes I think when you need help the most the system fails. If you ever need to talk i'm always here.

Thanks everyone, we were at the Doc's for 2 hours yesterday and they gave him some meds & needles to calm him down but said he wasn't bad enough to be hospitalised. :roll: I am so tired and have been up most of the night with him, he only slept for about 2 hours and that's how he has been for about a week. He has lost 6 kilo in a week (I wish I could). He could not keep any food or water in his stomach everything just came back up. I have forced him to eat today and he has 1 slice of bread with the tiniest amount of jam, 1 Banana, 2 triangle pieces of Watermelon & 6 slices of cucumber. His stomach has shrunk that much I have to try to get him to eat every hour or 2 to try & streach it.
He say's he keeps waking up because he can feel his stomach, do you think I can get through to him that if he ate he would be able to sleep. :roll: He has just taken a double dose of his med's that are to calm him and let him sleep, I thought if he sleeps throught till the morning I'll worry about getting more food in him then. I think sleep is more important at the moment. For me too, I thought I would just spend a couple of moments on here then head of to bed too. I am going to spend the day with Dad tomorrow so Gerry can "babysit".

Food wise I haven't done to badly, I was to tired last night to cook so I had toasted Ham, Tomato & cheese sandwich (with low-fat cheese & ham), cup of L/F Soup for Lunch and fresh fish & salad for tea.

Hope everyone is doing well I haven't had time to read everyone's journal.

hey fay

thats understandable that you havent had time to read everyones progress fay. you just need to concentrate on yourself and your family. im glad gerry is going to watch your son for the day so you can head out. what does gerry think about it all?

you sound like you are eating well which is great i think that when you are run off your feet you tend to eat better because you dont have time to think of food!!

Sounds like they need to review his meds if he's having another episode (manic I assume from what you are saying)

I don't envy you one bit, but I definitely tip my hat to you. You're doing so well in such a situation. I wish there were more services to help, but I suspect we're even worse of in Tassie that you are there :roll:
35kg lost. (November 2005 - October 2006)
15kg gained again (as at October 2010).
Back to the drawing board - Let's do this thing!

Well I'm sorta on the way back, what a week. DS has settled a bit still over the top but ok for the moment. We all came down with a chest cold then I picked up a gastro bug. I think I have lost almost 6 kilo's in about 10 days :shock: I don't think I will worry about going on Tanya's soup detoxt for the moment. I have only been able to keep in some watermelon and a bit of toast with vegimite since last Thursday. I'm not bloated anymore and my clothes a loose again so when I am able to start eating again I will have to be very careful on what I eat so I can find out what it is that is making me bloat so much. I have a fairly good idea that it may be too much cheese. :( I have noticed that there is not so much pain in my knees too so that's good. It is so B***y cold here at the moment I had to dig out the woolies again and when I put them away they were very tight on me. Now they are so loose. :D

Hope everyone is doing ok, it will take me a few days to catch up.

Welcome back Fay. I'm glad to hear things with DS have settled down a bit, but I'm sorry to hear you've been sick! Sounds like it was a nasty bug!

Hope you work out what is causing the bloating.. must be so frustrating!

Good luck with your continued weight loss :)
