    My
    Husband can be like that, the rest of my family too. It is really hard sometimes when it feels like the hole world is against you, that why i like coming on here.

    Any way just seems like one bad day after another... today i took my car for an mot, they then called saying it had failed on a seat belt and their suggestion was to remove the seat and retest to pass... problem with that is... its a 7 seated car and i have 6 kids! Will i be driving round with a child in a faulty dangerous chair? Also i tested all the seatbelts as well as checked fluids and wipers and tyres before i took it in so knew it was a load of rubbish.

    On my way kids in tow, i was waiting to cross the street, i had to wait a out 5 minutes, it was busy but had no problem with that. A woman slowed right down and started waving, i checked the other way, to make sure it was safe, thanked her and crossed, she slammed on her brakes exaggeratedly and started with hand gestures, then as i finished crossing she rolled down the window and started shouting at me, i said "you waved me across". She had no one behind her so by law it was ok for her to stop and let me pass, though the hand gesture goes against the high way code and if done in a test is an automatic fail.

    Turned out she wanted me to go further back on the pavement... that however would also go against the highway code because people wouldnt see me or my intention to cross.

    Anyway i made them show me the "faulty" belt which wasnt faulty... just trying to scam me... pretended to try to fasten it saying it wont do up! I went in did it and pulled hard to show it was fine, he went back and changed it to a pass... just shows... no.1 go prepared, no.2 ALWAYS stand your ground. That seems to go with every subject in life. As to the woman i dont know what was wrong with her... if she was having a bad day or if she truly doesnt know the rules of the road! It does upset me, but i thought the best of her at first, thinking she was giving way, maybe she was in a rush for something important, maybe she was afraid for my kids (though well behaved and in control and not in danger at all) safety...it is hard sometimes to look at people in an unbiased, non judgmental way, we get angry that they dont understand us and what we are going through (though invisible) and yet we dont do the same for others... water babies comes to mind... (mrs doasyouwouldbedoneby and mrs bedonebyasyouwould)

    I dont think it is this forum! I havent had an increase in spam... there are groups doing this! I had my identity stolen last year and STILL feeling the effects.... they open a credit in my name, applied for these ppi and loan companies (though no loans taken out), it was done to [email protected]#& me off, i was bombarded with phone calls emails letters etc... this stuff happens... police said it was someone who knew me!

    Any way i sure would miss reading your posts if you left! I think you contribute valuable info @Galja.

    Not had a good week and today has been the final straw. I'm sat at home while it is raining like anything outside. I was suppose to go to the school I work at for their 40th anniversary. I was really looking forward to it. Realised that the weather was going to be dodgy I knew that I wouldn't be able to cycle from the nearest train station to the school as it takes nearly an hour. I put a request out to others that are going could pick me up from a station closest to them. Not had 1 reply. I can't justify the £15 train + taxi to get there. Feel so abandoned. I hate not being able to see. I hate not being able to jump in my car and get somewhere easy. I hate having to plan things in such detail before I do anything. And to top it all my 'h' on my keyboard is being temperamental. Arghhhh!

    Hoping today, Sunday, will be a better day for you, take care X I think the feeling of being put aside, ignored or abandoned is one of the worse and can hurt the most, some people just don't think of others, but you have lots of friends here X

    Most dogs gravitate to me. A greyhound there did not like being touched but he spent the 5 minutes whilst I was watching the golden oldie awards he spent behind me.
