"A big one" hahaha oh you poor thing, hopefully it'll concentrate itself into day 1. Although if you've been unwell maybe your body has been delaying it to help you through this rough patch :( Do you think you've had covid? The loss of appetite is one of the symptoms too isn't it, apparently diarrhoea too. I thought of you when I went for my scan because one of the nurses there had it, had recovered & was now back at work... It's disgusting the lack of testing & support for HCPs.

Don't re: people, all a bunch of cunts, this is why I'm wholly isolating. There's a bloke who runs a building firm who lives in the close opposite my house, he had all the young lads that work for him out on the green having beers?! Groups of teenagers hanging about too - the thing is if they want to infect & potentially kill their own families that's fine w me, they've clearly thought this through and the pros of fingering each other down the local park outweigh the cons of ur 80 year old nana dying in strict isolation (with no ventilator) then her poor corpse flung into the new mega morgue they're building down the excel centre - but we're the mugs that'll be stood next to them in the fucking corner shop and contract it!

Sorry should probably direct this to the covid thread but that places scares me, would like to sleep again.
Ahhh thanks for the thoughts 😘 funnily enough when I had surgery last year it 'put things off' by a few weeks so possibly! At first I thought I had it then I didn't but then I did again - I think the paracetamol helps A LOT so I've stopped trying to ration it now and still feel fairly shite :( but my 7 days are up on Saturday and I'm due in Sun. Do not get me started on the diabolical way the private sector is dealing with this - they're no better than FOD when it comes to making money. They even advertised on twitter today for staff that may be short of money due to covid isolation! Swipe up here for a job 😡
And seriously I've just seen 3 little teenage hood rats go down the street with Big Mumma trailing behind 🤷🏻‍♀️

Must be a world wide 'thing', have never seen so many halfwits need to walk, jog, drag kids around as in the last few days, ffs STAY HOME, be grateful just to be breathing.😷. This is not a holiday, it's life or death for some poor sods. I just want to go punch them in the chops and knock sense into them.🤒😡 Hope you are feeling better soon Salad Dressing.😉

I also don't mind sending you sanitary products if you need them and I could get my younger sister to post you some paracetamol.

Just saw Tetyana Writes wrote "rest bite" in her caption & remembered it was a thing here - hey tetyana!

Yeppppp I really hope / pray for a bit of a shake up in society after this. It’s weird but I also hope even in over consumption and our way of living too, but idk if that’s too optimistic. I’m too new to the world to say that with any confidence we need a wise egg to tell us what they think! I might ask my 80 year old neighbour, but she doesn’t give a fuck about covid so maybe not.

I’m really struggling with work too because I’ve seen some hideous decisions being made by some really self seeking people. They’re not even greedy cos they’re not getting paid dividends from the business, so they must just be personally deranged. I can’t dox myself so can’t elaborate in detail about what I’ve seen but it makes me so sick I’m finding it difficult to lol at SODs and other things when I feel like... you know when you learn about the Holocaust at school and you wonder why people just complied with orders? Not directly comparing private sector’s response to covid to the Holocaust at all here but that’s the first time most children learn about such a huge & systemic social wrong (understatement of forever) and the question is always raised like well what would you have done / how could it have been stopped / the power of good people speaking up? And then you grow up and realise you’re a X at a company endangering (working class / poor, largely, it always is) people for profit during a time of national crisis and you’re not that different from the people who were complicit in maintaining the systems that allowed for the Holocaust to happen? Eg IBM and their data engineers computed the figures then and here I am in 2020 doing it now? No one else in management at work is from a WC background so I think it’s easy to see them / us rather than, that literally would be my sister / dad / me if I wasn’t simply luckier to date. I’ve spoken up repeatedly but it doesn’t get listened to, I’ve cried daily over it, I’ve rowed with my husband who wants me to quit, I’ve had grown men cry to me over it, I honestly think the work side has given me MH problems. Maybe we need a covid MH thread where we just talk about this stuff cos I think it’s all simmering under the surface in very different ways for us all, sorry to derail SODs...

I think if you report the post they can move it into a new thread for us.

It might be easy for me to say this, but no job is worth the price of poor mental health. I went to a very fancy smanchy private girls school in London but I was miserable and suicidally depressed and told to ignore it. That obviously doesn't work. It's only when your out of the bubble do you see how much you've suffered and the difference.

"This is clemmie & she's currently having a well deserved insta holiday. This is the woman I fell I love with 12 years ago & who changed my life forever. She is the mother to our 4 children & has dedicated her professional career to caring for others & bringing life into the world. Through building a community on instagram, she's helped scores of women across the globe whether it be through talking about real parenting, mental health, child birth, body positivity or other subjects that she's discussed honestly & openly. she's a published author, got an eye for design, has a mean sense of fashion, a smile that can light up the darkest room & a laugh that it more infectious than the common cold. She's true to herself & spends her days setting an example for our girls by supporting them in being the best version of themselves they can be. She's not perfect by any means, but no human is - she vulnerable, anxious and emotional like all of us, yet meets everything coming at her head on. In short she is my everything. I'm incredibly proud of her & I know a lot of you miss her but she'll be back shortly. "

@mother_of_daughters is back and I, along with many others, are pleased as punch. For the last several weeks I've been the boy in the back of the class passing on love notes to the girl in the corner while trying to stand in & fill the void Clemmie left by answering questions (poorly, I might add) on midwifery, parenting, fashion & home décor - It gave me an understanding into how much she contributes not only to my familie's life , but also this place we call Instagram & to those people that follow her. It felt strange on here without my wife as we give eachother the strength & support when it's needed while showing perspectives from both sides of parenting team but she needed that break as it's hard to pour from an empty cup, so please go give her a hello if you can. #shesback #modandfodtogetheragain #Fatherofdaughters #dadlife #fod #instadad

Yes, this! Who cares about the SODs really? Or ‘derailing’ threads? I mean. The whole point of us being on here moaning about the SODs is that they’re selfish, self obsessed cunts. If you’re feeling understandably anxious @heretoreaditall2019 and @SaladDressing is not well, we’d be as bad as the SODs if we all just carried on shouting about #ads and #gifts!

Lmaooo I love you guys (also CCing @Bizziebody & @PoorPatrol agels) + this post detailing out our Disney villain's past, for a moment when I was scrolling on phone I thought she'd announced coming back today and thought fuck me that's a brave move but also we're in chaotic times so makes sense? Maybe she should come back now??

Yeah sorry for the whinge it is ridiculous when you've got NHS workers being put in actual danger & being forced to contract covid don't you, I'm just whinging about working for someone I don't agree with, sorry guys and thank you for checking in. I love this thread and it's lovely and homely which is why I said it I appreciate these are really privileged problems to have. Also I'm crazy and hormonal and crying a lot anyway, in nicer news though found out we're having a little girl on Sunday!!

What are you guys all up to in quarantine?? How are you finding it? How many of you are home schooling?! x

Aww congrats on your baby girl. 🥳 Have you got a name already chosen?

This is what I was always told by one of my old ex best friends "there's so many other's worse off than you- you have a lot to be grateful for".

This is what my therapist taught me: (I also saw him today on skype) - "pain at the end of the day is still pain. Talking about it is not complaining. You have the right to feel the way you do, just because someone else maybe struggling with X or Y doesn't take away what you're going through."

I'm making a movie list and am going to start going through it.

Day 7 of being a indoor cat for me.

Congratulations!!! Baby girl! Ahhhh that’s lovely. I have two boys and always coo over girls (not that I’m disappointed that they’re boys but you know what I mean!)
Homeschooling and drinking a lot more! Lucky enough to have a garden during this lockdown situation. It’s slightly painful the sun’s out and we live in Cornwall but staying close to home and not driving to exercise!

@heretoreaditall2019 and any others with Covid anxiety. I was the same at the weekend, feeling very anxious about there being no end date to it all - I also think I should needed lockdown to start as all the fannying around just meant it would go on longer.
My coping strategy is to break it into smaller chunks so it’s less daunting, looking at it as the 3 weeks Boris stated even though I know it’s probably longer. I have colleagues in China who have given positive news about how life is getting back to normal there and lockdown was lifted a couple of days ago so it’s good to know it will end. Hope that helps

Aww thank you!! & YES but we're referring to her by it now so I'm scared of 'ruining' it ahead of the time? And people say they had to see the baby before they 'knew' the name, how did you guys (with kids) do it??

And omg therapy on Skype sounds amazing, and he's right but you still feel guilty don't you!! I do gratitude lists and I should do them more when feeling like this but it's hard.

Also MOVIE LIST please do share - I watched the Platform the other day, it's really dark/a bit gory (had to look away) and there's definitely implied sexual violence so proceed with caution but it was quite an immersive experience? Like I'm not a film person and was 100% captured by it the whole way through, no tattle checking at all?!

You're right & that's actually what they say in early recovery, one day (or hour / or 15 mins) at a time. Today's news (not that any of us with anxiety should be watching it right now) said how the 12 weeks is a huge ask for anyone to step out of society and how they're considering MH during this period so they are aware of how difficult it is?? Although as she said the reduction in stress from commuting is good, and tbh having the flexibility to do the washing up / clean the kitchen whilst you make ur normal teas in the day is nice. So not all hell !!

Thank you for being here though I'm so glad we have our SOD tattle fam xxxx

Thought we might have a clapping video from FOD tonight but then that would be recognising and crediting his very own fallen angel 👼- more importantly he’s just realised his posts just lose him followers and his silence means he’s clinging on to that’s 981k for maybe just one more day...also Iran won’t understand 🙄

Well he did try bless him 980k 👏👏👏👏👏 one man clapping
