• Thank you for all your replies. It is also like feeling hungry but unable to eat anything. I saw my doctor a few weeks ago, but did not mention these symptoms. I should have, really. But – alas – I didn’t. I see my doctor again in a month or so, so will mention it to her then.

    But it has always been this way. I am on medication for other health…[Read more]

  • I’ve always steered clear of women’s gossip magazines: they aren’t my cup of tea at all. I don’t buy newspapers, either. However, I do enjoy reading “Good Housekeeping” magazine every month. I used to read all the monthly women’s magazines, though: Marie Claire/Cosmopolitan/Red/Glamour/Woman & Home/Good housekeeping/Company. As a teenager, it was…[Read more]

  • Thank you for your reply, SpinningJen. I don’t use a credit card online, either: I stick with PayPal.

    I am seriously considering to change my passwords again. Although Mircosoft noticed the intrusion within minutes: they were that quick to spot the hacker. They advised me to change my passwords, which I did. Someone also tried to hack my…[Read more]

  • I don’t know why, but I often have a headache and feel nauseous. Sometimes I feel like vomiting and just lying down. I can feel queasy, too. Just to clarify: I am not expecting.

    Anyhow, I often feel vaguely unwell and just sick to my stomach.

    What could I have?

  • I agree,  SpinningJen: we are all human, whether rich or poor. And just because someone has reporters outside their door, does not make them super-human.

    As for what people talk about, we can’t control. But often issues are no one’s business. I mean, I wouldn’t announce on Twitter my mental health. I wouldn’t go on a talk show telling the…[Read more]

  • Autumn has to be my favourite season: as mentioned above, I enjoy walking in the park at this time of year. Just breathing in the fresh air and having cooler weather is wonderful.

    As a kid, I didn’t go trick or treating: I was upset about this at the time. All my school friends went out trick or treating. Poor me, eh? Anyhow, I will make sure my…[Read more]

  • I have been informed by my email provider that one of my accounts has been hacked: there is sensitive information in these accounts and I can’t afford to have them exposed.

    I have changed all the passwords, but wonder what the hacker wanted to gain: obviously information. But I am still wondering why I was hacked and not someone else. Again, I…[Read more]

  • I love celebrating Halloween and all that jazz

    I enjoy the cooler weather

    I love walking in the park in autumn

    I love wearing boots and autumn clothing

    I love decorating my apartment in an autumn inspired way

  • I love those boots, SpinningJen! They’re gorgeous.

  • You’re absolutely right, TestDummyC. It is usually assumed the more attractive the person, the more intelligent they are. Unfortunately, no matter how attractive a person, when they have to pass an exam, they need their brains. No amount of makeup can take someone to university, either.

  • I understand what you are all saying: suicide is a complicated subject and isn’t black or white.

    Those statistics are heartbreaking.

  • I have found all your responses interesting. Mental health used to be a taboo subject, but nowadays it is more accepted. It can still be difficult to discuss it with someone, but talking to a doctor does ease the burden. Because I am glad to have the treatment and the support. One-to-one therapy is my choice. I would feel too uncomfortable in a…[Read more]

  • I know exactly what you’re saying, cassandra. Having people pry into others personal business drives me up the wall. It is NO ONE’S business what a person – famous or not – is going through or what they’re feeling, or their bank balance or how even they live.

    I’d tell them very clearly: get your nose OUT of my business and never pry again. I…[Read more]

    I read your post with interest, SpinningJen: I felt that way a few days ago myself.

    I had been to the supermarket and the suchlike, but after coming home, felt down. I had been happy talking to people, yet on my own, felt miserable. Now, I do get along with people, but my mind can twist things. This is part of the reason for seeing  a…[Read more]

    I see the doctor regularly and – due to emotional wellness/depression – I shall be seeing a psychologist and counsellor. My doctor and I both feel this will keep me dealing with issues that always crop up. Because I have suffered depression in the past. I wouldn’t do anything bad or the suchlike, but I can feel down. I feel a counsellor will…[Read more]

  • I am sorry to hear of your accident, cassandra. I’m afraid I have no advice, but it is good you’re being treated for your injuries.

    Take care, lovely.

  • Funnily enough, I bought a pair of leather boots today, which are gorgeous. They’re the same size as my other boots. They pinch slightly, but this is only due to the leather needing stretching. Do you find this with boots? My sister and I spent 20 minutes in the shop choosing between sizes, so I am very happy. I do love my footwear!

    Anyhow, which…[Read more]

  • This sounds terribly negative, but it seems some people don’t care about a person’s emotional wellbeing until they commit suicide. The fact someone committed suicide is awful and it is absolutely right to be upset. But surely there should be caring before someone ends their life? Some kind of intervention? It is all too easy for some to say “It’s…[Read more]

  • It is nice to wear nice clothing. But casual clothing can also look stylish. Clean, fitted, ironed jeans look good with the right sweater/blouse. Boots can be clean and stylish, too.

    It is nice to enjoy fashion but I never walk about competing with other women. I think if you’re suddenly comparing your dress with someone else or your shoes with…[Read more]

  • You’re right there, SpinningJen: the small print is exactly that: small and glossed over.

    Always check what you’re signing thoroughly.
