Just one of those days

For those with unwanted phone calls, how about buying a cheap extra mobile eg £10 and only giving new number to about 5 select contacts but use the original number only when necessary. Best with same network to allow easier Sim swapping. If work have your landline its a tricky one especially if you're not the bill payer.

Yes, one of those days today, the brake master cylinder on the bike sale project decided to fail along with the horn, so scrap yard for a horn and I have just rebuilt the master cylinder, and good job I had the remains of another bike for spares. So just wondering what is going to go wrong next, but to face it, there's not much given the bike is so basic. Here's a clue, don't poke about with stuff trying to make it better if it works already, but that's my problem I have to tune to precision before I am happy with machinery.

 

Yesterday it was re-soldering the engine kill switch and adjusting the pilot jet on the carb, the day before it was tackling lighting faults ( not my wiring that was faulty it turned out to be poor light fittings and they came off of a Suzuki Hayabusa), and sometime before that it was cluing up on slide carburettors to get it started. But it is nearly there now.

I've had a bad day I'm trying to help an old lady who fell on a damaged ramp for the disabled has been in Hospital for two weeks and had a fractured hip and can hardly walk.The shop manager has denied responsibility and says it's not his fault and has no accident book and was very rude to me. Do I help her and get compensation but then he could be a hard working man supporting his family and it could be the last chance for him and it could cost him his business. Is hurting one person justified by getting justice format old lady. I've had a shit day and so fed up.

One of those days. Those days where sitting in a chair at school makes you want to scream your head off, or walk out of the room? Oh yes, I have those. Also days where I don't want to say a word, and am forced into conversation. When something goes wrong, even just one thing it ruins my day and I feel physically sick from anxiety until I am home, sometimes later than that. What I do is get something to fiddle with, concentrate as hard as I can on something else and try to go into my bubble where the outside world can't irritate me anymore. It's not particularly easy though. I think sometimes you just have to accept that you won't always necessarily have a good day, and the feelings are part of having Aspergers which will hopefully get less exhausting as you age and get them more and understand yourself, or move into a different sort of environment through life.

 

Things do get a little easier as you get older, in terms of learning what is an issue for you and being able to control it more. But other things wade in to take their place and make it difficult again :( We battle through though I guess.

This is sad :( I understand your predicament. I suppose if it were to ruin his business and he did have children, and a partner, then it's more than one life ruined/not made better, anyhow.

Ugh, I have a lot of days where everything just seems to go wrong :( Me and Chris are very unlucky, especially recently. But we're just hoping it will all balance out when we launch our new business.

I understand that all to well it's good to be able to help but then you have this moral dilemma but I'm sure the right result will happen in the end thats what I'm hoping for.

Now that you think about it, days like that, or any day that involves someone's misfortune can sometimes lead to an increase in that person's insecurity. I think it's usually how depression starts. If stuff like that keeps happening to them, they'll fall into a deep state of depression, and eventually (if untreated).....suicide. That's why I try to find every method I can to keep myself from getting depressed after a crappy day (Like the stuff I mentioned in my topic paragraph). I also try to help out as best as I can with someone who has also had a crappy day.

Your right Jake it's very important to keep that perspective going if you lose track of that you can fall very quickly to a very low place thats very difficult to get out of once your there. Helping others is always a good way to go because you not only help them but also your own self worth and it's funny but by helping others you can find the answers to some of your own problems to so communiscion is so important even if your feeling like running away and hiding.

Oh boy did it go wrong this morning, I went to the doctors to get the nurse to remove te stitches from the surgery I had on monday but in the waiting room I fainted and ended up on an ECG because of, where blood pressure bottomed, the lowest it has ever been 80/70. They think I over heated, where I know it is not that because I have no issues with heat, it's cold I am scared of, but I do have a good idea what it is and I shall speak to Doc about it when I next see him as he has loads of data now including eye witness reports of what happened. But I have had this before many times, it used to come in the night and wake me with the pain, but now it comes exclusively in the day time and the process is the same every time and medical literature doesn't know what causes it and so there is no cure, but this thing is erratic you don't know it's coming until it's there and you just have to ride it out and hope when you faint you don't hit something nasty on the way down. But I want to know is it connected to xxy, because the majority of people that suffer with this thing are females and I ain't one of them.

I'm so sorry to hear you had a bad time this morning :( It sounds horrible. I hope they can find out possibly what might be causing it. I have fainted in doctors surgeries before a few times, and once in the car after I'd come out the doctors after I'd had a blood test. I had to have my blood pressure taken every hour at home for a while and several 24-hour ECG machines connected to my chest. I hated it :( They thought I might have some blood pressure or problem with my heart, but it really just turns out it's all down to my anxiety and having had panic attacks. I always said, whenever they take my blood pressure or pulse, I am going to be so anxious about that, the results are going to appear extremely high from the anxiety making my heart race. Now, I have a huge phobia of blood pressure, blood tests, anything medical related.

Good luck

When it comes to having bad days I guess I have had more than a few in the past 6 years, when the transplant failed (I thought I had a stomach bug) I was in hospital for 3 weeks and when they send you for an ultrasound and put a portable defibrillator machine under the trolley you know it’s serious!

I have spent days with head in the toilet being sick after dialysis, the needle sites have bled and I have lost countless shirts as a result (note to self – never wear white shirts on dialysis!). I have been depressed, and had some truly dark days.

I have to watch what I eat and how much I drink, I am constantly tired and I have seen people die.

 

And today I felt fed up, and tired.
