Jem, I'm so sorry. It sounds like you may have already psychologically distanced yourself from her, but the mind is a funny thing and you may find yourself feeling upset when you least expect it.

Either way, if you need anything, you know where we are. :luv: xxx

I'm so sorry to hear that Jem. Grief has a way of biding its time and ambushing sometimes. Thinking of you, and sending hugs. :luv:

Kovacs, Zardoz, my sympathies for your losses as well. Hugs to the both of you too. :luv: :luv:

What a grim week for the Nay! thread. :(

It's horrible to lose a parent, Jem, my sincere condolences. The death of my Step-Father took a few months to register completely and I'm still trying to recover from it some 12 years later. Don't be afraid to talk to someone if you need to unburden. xx

My mum died yesterday morning after being in and out of hospital lately.

My relationship with my mum has been virtually non-existent in recent years and I kinda feel like I've grieved that loss a hundred times over. I had decided to visit her regardless of the state of things but was an hour too late.

I just feel ... nothing. I have a feeling it'll hit me at the funeral maybe. I don't know. 2020 has been a rollercoaster.


I am so sorry to hear this.

Really sorry to hear this Jem. Whatever you feel over the coming days, weeks and months, all of those feelings are valid so don’t feel expected to feel a particular way.

So sorry to hear that Jem,

Pauline had similar experiences when her Dad died (she kicked him out of their family house when she was about 12, and had very little to do with him since then).

I don't think there is a "normal" way to deal with the death of an estranged parent, so just do what feels best.

Sorry to hear of your news, Jem, and may I echo SDG’s words. It sounds an emotionally confusing time. Make time to care for yourself x

Kovakc’s and Zardoz, sorry to hear of your losses and the circumstances in which you found out, Kov.

Erk! So sorry to hear your news Jem.
I suspect you may be in shock, and you’re right, if the funeral doesn’t hit home, then it will sometime after. Hope you’ve got some good friends to unload with.
Take care

I shouldn't complain too much, I have a few calls so I won't be sitting in a freezing van all day, unlike my team mate yesterday.

That lost filling has turned into a root canal booked in for next Monday. £282.80... Pah.

Sorry to hear that. Try to think of it as money to prevent future pain and I hope it all goes well.

Ouch. Dental things are never pleasant, either in your mouth or your pocket. Fingers crossed it's fast, quick, and relatively painless.

My one and only crown fell out ......... last March, I think it was. I know my dentist wasn't open at the time and when they did open later in the year they were only dealing with "emergencies." As I haven't been in any pain and it wasn't visible because it's round the side, I didn't attempt to make an appointment. It's been a bit of a nuisance as there is quite a hole in the root in which detritus tends to get stuck, but I'm able to get it out with a cocktail stick.

Then, a couple of weeks ago I got a text telling me that my dental appointment was confirmed for the following Monday, which was odd because I hadn't made one. As it came at the weekend I couldn't call them until Monday morning.

I called them on Monday morning first thing and they said they were sorry but it was a different Mr Hargreaves. I took the opportunity to ask if I could make an appointment about my crown, so I have an appointment next week I'm on leave. I don't know when I would have got around to dealing with it if you haven't texted me.

No specific event that I'm aware of and it's not painful. I've not even been peeping through any keyholes. If I hadn't seen it in the mirror I wouldn't have known anything about it. I assume it'll sort itself out in a couple of weeks.

I didn't even spot that looking on my phone. :facepalm:

Hope it clears up quickly. :)

I didn’t notice it either. A woman I used to work with had exactly the same once, but it was over the entire white of her eye. It was back to normal about ten days later.

I just assumed that was a photo of you in the waiting room to have your COVID jab or something, didn't even notice your Rage infection.
