Hi,

I have been feeling low lately with stuff in life and finding it hard to shake off the gloomy feeling :thumbsdown:

Hopefully can have some Disney magic from you all guys!

Just wondering if anyone have good tips or advice to deal with ad hoc feeling of 'doom and gloom'.....

ahh that's a horrible feeling, it all just gets a bit much sometimes doesn't it? :hug2:

Do you need to go shopping for any holiday gear?

Don't know where you live but perhaps you can get out for a relaxing day in the countryside/beach/parks? Take a bite to eat and drink, turn your phone off and relax. Take a good book maybe. When the sun is shining of course, that always helps!

:hug1: Jeff. The only thing that works for me is a huge bar of chocolate! But then I feel bad for eating a huge bar of chocolate.

Watch something funny, I really do think that laughter is the best medicine.

I know the feeling :sigh: the thing that always cheers me up is taking Niamh out in her pram around the park. Perhaps you could take your dog on a nice walk somewhere you don't usually go :yes:

I've read an article or two about the correlation between eating something one likes and the relief of feelings of depression and sadness. All chemical, eh? If it works, do it!

Just make sure you enjoy it and don't look back. :hug2:

Is it particularly rainy or grey where you are? Sometimes that adds to it.

Plan your holiday! :yes: Where will you eat? What will you do in a given park? Those sorts of things. Hopefully that would help too. :yes:

Things been difficult at work etc.

Today was sunny which helped but my dearest hubby is away for whole weekend and be back tomorrow, so I guess I miss him......

Calories! :shocked:

Well goodness, Jeff! That's enough to make anyone have a low day! :hug2:

Calories? As in higher butter fat, better cream calories? You know, the luscious factor kind? :D :D :D

I don't know what the difference is, it tastes different to other high cream ice creams iyswim. Kellys is my favourite, it comes from where my Granddad lives, child hood holidays .... Sigh

My favourite ice cream is from a local(ish) dairy farm. Don't know if they sell it across the country but I've seen it for sale in loads of places locally. The Chesire 'Ice cream farm' :yes: They make the best ice cream and sorbets :yes:
Cheshire Farm Ice Cream: Home Page (http://www.cheshirefarmicecream.co.uk/)

Kiwi Sorbet, or summer berries are my favourite flavours :yes:

That's part of the strength of this site, Jeff. :hug2: We put caring about one another first intertwined with that love of Disney. :yes:

We have a raspberry sorbet available here that is very good, tart and nice not overly sweet. I forget the name though... :embarassed:

After this thread last night I had an ice cream craving, so Jade and I went to the ice cream farm today :yes: We only discovered it last year when I took Chris (From Hong kong) there when he was on the international exchange, it's greatly improved since I was last there :yes: There is loads to do for little Niamh too :yes: Plenty of other children to 'talk' to in the toddlers area and she even sampled some ice cream :yes: She started mooing at everything that moves.

She can't say 'Josh' Yet but I've taught her loads of animal noises :unsure: Maybe she is like Dr Doolittle :rotfl:

She had her first proper taste of ice cream, too :yes:

Hi,

I have managed to book one 'counselling' session tomorrow so hopefully I can start work out what is bothering me and come up with some strategies etc....

Hope you are feeling better soon :hug2:. A tub of Ben and Jerrys yogurt brownie tends to do it for me :thumbsup:

Helping with identifying what's bothering you is a useful service for a counselor. :yes: That way, you can then go to work on that issue, eh?

Hope it's resolved soon. :hug2:
