Raced back to house to get wallet and then back to store before it closed. At least I got a lot of walking out of it, which was partly why I went in first place!
I cannot wait for this hospital appointment!
I hope it goes well for you. may you be relieved of the pain.
Feel better Cindy
Impact on work and mood.
Sending you lots of positive vibes Cindy - sorry to hear you haven't been feeling too good xx
Yeah, I have those days when it just sinks in and holds on and I can't shake it. Sometimes, it's almost comforting. Hope it passes soon, Cindy!
Big hugs xx
ahh, da blues.
comes soon. Local post seems to take ages! Trying also not to think about what next steps might be - if any. Really just need to wait this out.
Hope it works out for you in the best way.
Hang in there. Waiting is a ****. Big hugs
I hope everything works in your favor.. always remember to stay famous cindy
South Africa 🇿🇦 doesn't get heavy snow ❄️. Man I'd love to have a snowball fight
Saw this on my weather app today, and was a bit shocked compared to the 21 degrees and sunshine here today. Hope spring will come soon for you!
So sick and tired of the snow! Had a rough commute to work today... It's 25+ degrees below the average. I need some spring for my mental health! Stay warm, Cindy!
Weather has been cold & dismal here, too. Blah.
feel crap. So, yeah, not great. Trying to believe tomorrow is a new day....
Poor Cindy, that's rubbish. I hope things pick up for you tomorrow
Tomorrow is what you make it. If better is what you want , better is what you shall get. Believe it . I know it's not easy ❤️
Big hugs Cindy 🙂 I hope you feel better very soon and fingers crossed for a better day tomorrow x
Tomorrow is always a new day. I've been eating badly lately too, and it's frustrating. Yesterday was bad for the same reasons for me, but just have to face today as a different day. Lots of strength, Cindy!
I hope it gets better. Could have written exactly the same post the last couple of days, including missing an officemate who has left a week ago.
Have a good time tonight :)
Thank you lovely Pandas! xx
Our fears often make our challenges seem much bigger and scarier than they are. Wrestling with this, too, time to time.
really must get that servant :)
Look after yourself today Cindy and get better. X
Hope your feeling better soon Cindy xx
I hope you feel much better real soon Cindy XXX
Get well soon!
Got a cold too! Ugh... Hope you feel better soon!
Jeeves: You rang, miss?
Haha! I can relate to that.
... or train your cat to make tea. If they don't pay rent, they could at least help with the household. ;)
And you want them to think you're really good at your job? Yeah, that. I can't believe I'm 50 and still long for reassurance and approval
I think I will long for approval as long as I live?! I guess it's something we need.
I can relate to this so much... Working with smart colleagues is awesome but sooo intimidating. :(
I'm with Esther. It won't be an age thing, it'll be lifetime. I know you are fantastic at everything you do though & I'm sure all those around you know it, too. 💖
I suppose averaging out to a 5 isn't too bad. I hate those exhausting days...
Not just at this job, but at all I've ever had. Have to keep remembering this is month 8, so there is still stuff to learn and a working culture to adapt to. I think things went okay in the end, but at the moment I would usually not work tomorrow, as
I'm only doing 4 days/week, but I have to work tomorrow morning. Would give anything to have a lie-in but just not going to happen!
Yeah, you're probably right, Jeff - it's just so unsatisfying!
That sugar thing is a constant struggle. Don't let work stuff get you down too much. Important to remember that a job is just a job, not your life.
with hot water bottle and chocolate. And cat, who likes to sit on top of the duvet with the hot water bottle underneath her. IT'S SUPPOSED TO BE FOR ME :)
Sounds good, Cindy!
What's your Goodreads name Cindy, I will friend you. Mine is scrittigirl - Penelope Pemberton :)
Mine is Albertine67 - Cindy Stubbs. :)
John, it will be good! I admire the energy you must have, to have a kitten - my cat was 4 years old when I adopted her and is now, like me, an old lady (ahem). Early nights, hot drinks- I was born to be old :)
Thanks Lydia - big hugs x
Sounds like the perfect evening to me! Sometimes I think I was also born as an old soul. :)
I'm not working, not even voluntary work at the moment, so I've got a lot of time. I'm wondering what type of cat he'll turn into, I hope he stays as affectionate as he is now.
Sounds perfect..Book cat and chocolate. As I'm typing this I'm in bed as well with my cat purring on top of me. How s the weather there Cindy? it's-6 out here
-6 here, too, with snow and some cold wind. I miss my cat 😁 she is at home while I'm visiting my sister
Woohoo! Enjoy your day off!
Yeah the weather is quite something!
anyway as public transport is shutting down, roads closed,etc interesting to see what tomorrow will bring!
Stay warm Cindy, it is actually quite a beast!
So envious, but also very happy for you! Enjoy it while it lasts. 😀❄️💕
Excellent, just be careful when going outside. The snow is amazing!!!
Sounds lovely. Glad you were able to enjoy it. xx
I've got three snowdrops out flowering next to my front door.
Some very good things happed today! ❤️ enjoy it
Well done Cindy❤
Tired from work Cindy? I'm happy to read you're in a good place cause you deserve every bit of happiness!
Youre good at finding beauty and noticing details.
Cat purring, Bach's explorations in counterpoint, wisps of steam rising and whirling, the Mad Hatter quipping, 'You used to be much more muchier. Youve lost your muchness.'
That sounds like a lovely way to spend a weekend... :)
Sounds great :) wonderful idea for a Sunday
Yay Cindy. Glad you're having a good evening to yourself xx
Lovely to see green, Cindy! 😊
What a lovely status update Cindy. So pleased for you
That is wonderful. Xx
happy for you . you deserve this!!@
Well done :)
I'm glad you're feeling better! I'm so happy for you xx
working 4 days a week, as fatigue/pain make it very hard to do full time. But sometimes even 4 days is hard. Will still be a few weeks before I see consultant again regarding result (don't have a date yet). Some days I cope with the uncertainty bette
than others. Just want to have 'normal' life - it's 7 months into my dream job, after being off work 2 years. They're being supportive but can't go on like this forever.
Oh, Cindy. How stressful! Sorry you're going through all this. Will send you happy and healthy thoughts and prayers that things turn out OK and you get the help you need to feel better!
It's been hard to think about updating on here, but I am really grateful for all the Panda magic of hugs and support. Right now supporting others seems easier than posting about myself. Much love to you all xx
Hope everything is ok Cindy
Thank you, dear Jeff - you are such a wonderful Panda. xx
Thanks Penelope - big hugs back xx

So sorry to hear what you're going through just now Cindy. It must be very stressful. My hopes and thoughts are with you.
I have been waiting to hear how you are, knowing you would post when ready. I understand the struggle of physical chronic illness very well and hope for a positive outcome for you.
I hope everything will turn out okay and you will get good news as quickly as possible. Thinking of you.
I'm so sorry, Cindy. I hope the results come out okay. I'm glad you updated though because it's always lovely to hear from you. You're the kind mother panda who keeps us all sane. I hope the job is helping somewhat, even if it's tiring. Sending tons
*tons of love and prayers. Xx
