Re: Fragile

How about some Pumpkin Soup, for a cold windy evening (here it is) @Shaz51 

A huge big pot of it, with plenty for everyone - That's what they do at my fortnightly MH Social Lunch function.

@Shaz51 

I really appreciated your first response and that you slowed your brain enough to make some sense of my long post. We have known each other for years. I am glad you had the closeness of a cousin/sister. It would certainly be difficult growing up with a rejecting father.  I think my mother was the more rejecting parent for me, but really both were very unavailable   I was used to being invisible. Somehow felt safer than being seen.

I guess there are many different types of blended families and step parenting.

It sounds like your little brother may have been a SIDS baby or died in childbirth.  Did your mother talk about him a lot? It would have been hard for you both.

I managed to steam black beans in the pressure cooker and cut and glued the felt letters onto the little aqua bag, but not up for much else today.

 

Feeling quietened and sad. Time to pull my head in.

 

It is very cold and blustery here.

Re: Fragile

Learned a new word today @Zoe7 

Alexithymia ... which fits me and is something I have spoken about before ... apparently it is normal in my kind of circumstances!

Re: Fragile

Re: Fragile

Had to look that word up myself @Appleblossom - interesting thought ...DBT certainly helped me be able to recognise and name emotions.
