    G'day Warm welcome glad that you found us. It is early days in your recovery, cut yourself some slack, it all just takes time. Gardening is therapy for some. Good idea using a table for the planting. It is whatever works best for YOU. Take things easy, rest when your body needs it, keep well hydrated... Take care.
  6. Daff I could never get my head around the spoon thing, however I'll often say 'there's few sparklers in my box' or my sparkler box is empty that works for me anyway.
  7. Hi there Warm welcome glad you found the site. Sorry late on this just wanted to wish your Mum well just do what your doing keep talking to her it really does help... take care

  10. Hi there warm welcome, we cant give medical advice really but from what I'm aware the constant pain maybe the disperse of the blood, a way to ease that is keeping well hydrated... again lethargic could be lack of food and de-hydration - Keep on encouraging him its the only way I know its a pain but keep at it. Take time for yourself men (I think) are the worsts patents ever... take care

    Hi there Warm welcome to the site, glad that you found us. I'm with SM he should be entitled to benefits I'm glad you've taken the step to find out good for you... Yep a trip to the doctor would be a very good idea, or get the doc to call stress to the receptionist it is urgent... It does take a lot of coming to terms with (& I think maybe men are more infected that way).. take care
