    Thanks. I will do. I wasn't too happy that after 2 sessions they said I was fine.

    I've just made the mistake of reading up my diagnosis on Google. (the muscles in my neck are tight)

    Apparently unlike you, I don't spend my entire night on the forums.

    You knew it was a sensitive subject and you still brought it up. But that on top of what you said in the other thread about her using her autism as an excuse, is just not on.

    CWTA: Sorry about that, you and I posted only seconds apart it seems. I'm happy to drop the subject if DX2 will agree to stop needling BCS.

    It's not remotely childish; that you think attempts at mediation to be such simply shows you up as you are. Leave her alone, and she will leave you alone, then the entire thread will be happy and calm again and you won't be stressing out the rest of us.

    Either that, or take it to PM.

    I know very well that I have a tendency to jump in and attempt to defend other people, and it is not something of which I'll ever be ashamed, so please don't try to make me feel that way about it, as it won't work. Plenty have tried and failed over the years.

    BCS is not the only person in this thread you happen to be irritating at the moment. Seriously, quit it. Go make yourself a cup of tea or something and chill out.

    This was a lovely, supportive thread and it appears to have been taken over by sniping brought from somewhere else on the forum.
    Leave it at the door and remember the basic rule of MSE "Please be nice to to all".

    I hope in the cold light of day you'll all be ashamed of yourselves, for your words to each other, bringing them here and spoiling this safe haven for people.

    Well said. Hope you sleep well! I've got a couchsurfer coming tomorrow afternoon, so I think I'm going to curl up in bed with my current e-book. (I love e-books. So much easier than lugging half a dozen books AND my laptop when I go to visit family for a few days...)

    I started the day full of energy and I was really motivated. I've applied for three jobs so things were going quite well, then suddenly my mood just dropped and now I don't want to do anything. I was going to sit in the gardens and listen to the birds but I can't hear any?!?

    Well, my arm is now fine. However, my neck really isn't. I now have more limited movement than I did when I went to bed on Sunday.
