Re: The Challenges of Mental Health Wellbeing

Oh of course it does! 'slapping her forehead'. Omg, I've been away from emergency too long! I think because it was out of context with nothing next to it, I didn't pick it up @outlander

Re: The Challenges of Mental Health Wellbeing

lol @Sans911 context is usually helpful! all it said on the paper was "write what these abbreviations/symbols mean" i have been reading and writing alot of abreviations today thats for sure.

Re: The Challenges of Mental Health Wellbeing

do you want to talk about anything at all @Sans911 doesnt have to be what is triggerring you if you dont want to. happy to just keep you company if thats what you need

Re: The Challenges of Mental Health Wellbeing

Keeping me company would be great lil Sis. I'd like that. Sorry if I'm not so talkative today or recent. Don't know where to start anyway. And I feel my world shrinking, getting smaller @outlander

Re: The Challenges of Mental Health Wellbeing

thats ok, im much the same @Sans911
will come and sit with you and make a hot chocolate. you can start wherever you like, say as much as you want or nothing at all. Heart

Re: The Challenges of Mental Health Wellbeing

How is your crochet going @outlander? Someone taught me today and I sort of got the hang of it. But now I can't find my yarn. I can see it in my head, but I've been through my places where I think it is several times without any luck

Re: The Challenges of Mental Health Wellbeing

its going ok, i finished a scarf yesterday (i can share it with you but i have to remove the pic once youve seen it)  and working on a baby blanket before moving back to my rainbow one. @Sans911
that is good someone taught you,it can take abit of practice to get the hang of it esp holding the yarn.
i hope you can find them, spotlights having a sale atm and quite a few rolls are only $2 if you wanted to buy another one. Bella coco is good on youtube if you wanted to learn some more as well. Did you enjoy it?

Re: The Challenges of Mental Health Wellbeing

I had lots of trouble with holding the yarn the usual way as my fingers cramped up @outlander

So I kinda found another way that almost works. I was using someone else's yarn so I couldn't bring it home with me. I'd love to see what you are up too. I was so keen to get started when I came home. I bet when I wake in the morning, I'll spot it right away.
