    hey gals,

    my menstrual cycle has been all over the place in the past few months. I have been stressed (havent we all) with the pandemic but I was wondering if that would be enough to cause my period to stop for a while?

    I had a period at the end of March, same as usual, around 5 days long with some cramps etc. Nothing out of the ordinary. But I…[Read more]

  • How are you all coping being stuck at home over the past few and next few weeks? do you think people in your area are abiding by the guidelines and rules for keeping safe and trying to stop the spread of Covid-19?

    I took my girls out on their skates yesterday and I have to say, dog walkers were very rude. I had my 12 & 8 year old girls on their…[Read more]

  • OMG this is still going on and is getting worse and worse and is stressing me out so much. I know, in light of everything that’s going on right now in the world it should not be worrying me but its gotten so insane now that I am really upset

    The insurance company for the other driver admitted the accident was her fault and they wrote in an email…[Read more]

  • This horrible, stressful situation is still not resolved. It has upset me so so much. Its hard to believe insurance companies can stoop so low….though, I probably shouldn’t be surprised, since this happened to me I have heard so many stories about how awful it is to go through a car accident claim.

    I just don’t understand why it has to be so…[Read more]

    what age are the children? do you use water wipes, they are very good for cleaning. and how about hand sanitising gel? that’s a good thing to use too to make sure hands are extra clean

  • Sabbi replied to the topic Kids and poop in the forum National Chat 4 months, 3 weeks ago

    I’m a little confused – what ages are the children? are they wearing nappies? if they go to the bathroom, are you helping them get cleaned up? are their pajamas getting soiled?

  • Anyone seen it? Was thinking of going this week. Is it good?

  • I wasn’t mad about it, thought it was ok but nowhere nearly as good as the first one. The songs weren’t catchy, nothing like the previous film where the songs were instantly catchy.

    Kids enjoyed it though and that’s the main thing really

  • Sabbi started the topic Feeling so unfit!!! in the forum National Chat 6 months ago

    Oh, I am feeling so unfit at the moment. I’ve really enjoyed Christmas and it’s been lovely relaxing and eating and drinking and watching movies etc but I feel like I could be rolled out the door at this stage.

    I really want to get back running next week, once kids back to school.

    Now all I need is someone to come and make me get out for a…[Read more]

  • Oh I so need to get back onto my skates. ..I’ve eaten so much this Christmas!!!

    Next week the health kick starts!!!!

  • Sabbi replied to the topic Silent miscarriage in the forum Introduce Yourself 6 months ago

    Oh Leanne,

    I am so very sorry for your losses. It’s awful not knowing if they were girls or boys; I don’t know if they can tell you or not.

    We went through 2 miscarriages ourselves and they were heartbreaking experiences for us. We lost first one through complete miscarriage at 12.5 weeks. We had seen a heartbeat but the baby was very small and…[Read more]

  • Dept of Education have been beyond useless. No help, no support at all. Its sad tbh and very frustrating too.

    We got some good advice from Dyslexia Association of Ireland, they’re on and we got lots of good advice from Brian at Compupacit, he has been really nice. We got a scanning pen from Compupacit and this is really helping her.…[Read more]

  • Its a mass but not a holy kind of mass if you know what I mean – its more about being in a room with other people who have suffered a loss and remembering our babies. There is music and also, tea and coffee afterwards. I remember the first time we went, we felt awkward going in but soon realised it was actually a nice way to honour our babies…[Read more]

  • Each year in November the miscarriage association host a non-denominational remembrance mass. Anyone who has been through a miscarriage is welcome, whether you are religious or not doesn’t matter.
    It’s a beautiful, poignant service with lovely music and tea and biscuits after. The thing is, everyone in the room is dealing with the pain and loss…[Read more]

  • Oh Ccboobie, I am so sorry for your loss. You are so right when you say that everyone’s experience is different and I can understand why you would feel angry and upset at anyone assuming they had the same experience as you and your husband. Your trauma was awful and you are entitled to grieve for your baby. And not just your baby but all the hopes…[Read more]

  • I have to keep thinking that its not personal to the insurance company. To them, its about not paying out for accidents and its not like they are trying to deliberately upset me, they are just mean. So, I’ve got to try not let it get to me.

    hoping it will be settled soon. I have thought about dropping it but I know I did nothing wrong and I would…[Read more]

  • I have a really good solicitor now and she is helping me. Its ironic I deliberately did not get a solicitor involved for a long time because I didn’t think I would need to. The insurance company admitted liability and I had doctors notes for the few weeks I was off and a letter confirming my average income from my accountant and I thought that…[Read more]

  • This nightmare feels like it will never end. Last night I just cried my eyes out, I’m not sure I can take much more of this.

    Almost 11 months ago a woman crashed into the side of my car, while I was waiting in traffic for the lights to turn. She hit me so hard, the impact broke my air bag reel and left me with quite a stiff & sore neck. She…[Read more]

  • Sabbi replied to the topic Feel like busting our crying in the forum National Chat 1 year ago

    Go see your GP, it can’t hurt to talk to someone. don’t be nervous or embarrassed, we all feel down sometimes. please talk to someone close to you that you trust and let it all off your chest, it will help.

    a problem shared is a problem halved….

    please let us know how you are.

  • It just seems so stupid to me. they gave us a ‘report’ stating our daughter really very badly needs support and learning aids but they say she did not score highly enough to get any help from them.

    its just so frustrating and annoying. I am literally raging about it.

    She is a great sleeper, always was ever since she was a baby. She is the…[Read more]
