    12 Hour shifts

    Hi there Not the same thing I know but wife of someone who does 12hours shifts from time to time (next one on Sat funny enough then Tues 18th) and for me they are shattering & I'm not the one working.. Its hard on even the ones that haven't had a SAH and all the challenges that goes along with it.
  3. Hi Vicky welcome to the site, glad you found us. Oh what a horrible ordeal for you to go through, the chances of you actually having another are low but that feeling is horrible think everyone feels like that in the beginning it will ease - honest. of course you had to make a complaint that was terrible and no-one should have to go though that. I hope you get some sort of resolution to this.. hope you find the site helpful. take care

    Welcome to the site so glad that you found us.. The guilt thing is horrible but know that it wasn't your fault and there was nothing you could have done, don't bottle it up speak with the family how you feel. This all takes time and you've been blessed with that sending my warmest wishes... All the other replies are great as ever so making this short...

    I have to agree take their advice - as for excersise I think your getting plenty just with day to day life stuff. Do listen to your body and keep well hydrated and remember your in early days take it easy.. take care

    SAH, 14 years on.

    I wobble too but have to say nobody's said that to me 'yet' but I'd be like SM and just laugh it off I have been told 'your slow' when a jokes being told or something like that I just laugh that off to my brain works slow...

    Welcome Angela, wow! scary but each day is a gift it takes time to get over something like a SAH, slow and easy, listen to your body when it says had enough rest, keep hydrated and more so when its hot. writing lists, keeping a diary are all good I still do that and with Christmas looming there will be lists, and lists of lists its crazy but it keeps me on track, hope to hear more from you..

  11. Hi there, my BP goes up and down like a yoyo. sometimes when you focus too much on it, it doesn't help it. keep hydrated and rest if your doing too much maybe its your body's way of saying 'slow down' take care
