I thought this might happen.

I'd like what I've donated to be forwarded to Cherry anyway. If she doesn't use it to move out, she can treat herself to something girly with it. Maybe a massage or a facial or something.

I think she needs it and besides, it'll replace the Christmas gift that went awry somewhere between here and there.

OK, SG previously gave me permission to quote more from her PM.

I'd rather tough it out here for another few months and see if the council can come up with something for me. It will give me the time I need to get me head together anyway.

So thank you very much for the thought - and thank anyone who suggested it to you - but I can't in all conscience accept a helping hand in anything but the usual Cellar way - people who read and listen and understand. And I know you know that's priceless.

You wouldn't want me to spend it on hair dye and pizzas would you

*smiles* she's a cool chick. Staying her hand might be the right thing to do just now.

And of course we'd want you to spend it on hair dye....your hairstyles add colour to all our lives!

Good for you SG! I think that is a very wise decision.

agreed. next time you feel weak and not in control, come back here and just read what you wrote and see how strong you are.

I want to say I am really flattered and touched that you would have thought of this.
Thank you so much.

What I wrote to UT (before I realised this thread existed) was the truth - my problem isn't so much money at the moment, as all the things I am trying to deal with at once. Namely, depression, being an adult living at home, family conflict, sobriety/ cravings and weight loss. I get overwhelmed sometimes. Money would help of course, but on ly in the way it would help every single other person in the Cellar.

Thanks again, you're an amazing group of people.

On the up side, if it weren't for the "being an adult living at home, family conflict, sobriety/ cravings and weight loss", you'd be dealing with depression all the time.

Seriously, your pictures and descriptions of your activities shows that life is not all bad. Yes?
Everything is interesting... look closer.

Oh it's not all bad at all.
Today isn't a very good day, but I certainly had one on Monday, and hope that I might have again tomorrow.

Mum & Dad go away at the end of June, which allows me to test the water as to how I cope on my own.

Good on you Cherry. You are a lovely lovely lady in spite of all you deal with on a daily basis. If I could be half as strong as you.......maybe I'll go dye my hair and see if it helps......or a walk in the countryside......hang in there beautiful!!!
Once, in an interview, Chuck Norris admitted that he was not the most awesome thing ever.
He declined to elaborate; but I believe we all know that he was referring to the existence of chocolate covered bacon.

I'd rather be judged by twelve than carried by six.

I would be glad to donate if SG ever needed it. Let me know how I can help her.

PM if you want. Good luck SG, don't be afraid to ask for help.
