View Full Version : Sometimes when I say...

6th March 2012, 11:42
How many people here say that they are ok when deep down you're not? I dunno about you, but I feel I am being weak if I say anything other than 'I'm ok or I'm fine', I feel I am the one who has to be strong and hold it all together for my family.

I guess many can relate to the below.

I'm great (rare) = pretty good
Good = about ok, but not going to moan about
Ok = not that good really, I probably need a hug
Not too good (rare) = Things are really shitty and need to let off some steam / finding it really tough

sadly most don't interpret these...

Ello Jeannie,

Yes we all feel like that at times, and i am fortunate to have someone who does hug me.

Have a hug from me as well.xx Derek.

I can relate to that, my other problem is being constantly asked if I am ok, I say yes then am asked if I am sure, again I say yes then 5 min later it starts again till I get annoyed and flip out and am then told "I knew there was something wrong". Aaaaaarrrrrrrrgggggggghhhhhhhhh

H Jeannie,

When people ask me how I am I always say Fine. As long as I say that ,I am fine but if people express sympathy it makes me cry. Likewise best to read books that make you laugh. I accidently downloaded one to my Kindle which turned out to be about a young paralysed guy who eventually went off to Switzerland to commit suicide - not the sort of thing you want to read when you are gradually becoming useless yourself.

Morning Jonesy,

Shocked to hear you say your becoming useless, Less able maybe, and crying just shows you have feelings , so never say your useless ,, i can think of many who are ,but they arnt fighting a battle against something that the odds are against us . NO USELESS is something you will never be . Hugs alround i think ?
