Eva, I let my hair grow out. it was one of the first cost saving measures made, I had to get it cut every 4-6 weeks it grows so fast

I felt happier with my hair once the fringe was grown out, I was beyond bothering to cut it monthly. I have had foils put in 6 - 12 months ago & I use either of 2 shampoos by Redkin, 1 it puts a slight hint of pink in amongst the hair by picking up on the previous foils and prevents the dreaded skunk line regrowth. It gives a hint of pink & looks like it's been done professionally. The other is purple colour that picks up the platinum highlights and really makes them pop (silver /white gleam) - looks as though I've just come from the hairdresser. I did this for 12 months, had my hair cut, styled & foiled. My hairdresser was so impressed she's sticking & selling both products now. .... I don't use it every wash, just once a month and I alternate. Plus with my hair longer I only need to wash it once a week - what a luxury from short hair daily washing.

Default Finding me

Default Finding me posted in General mental health & emotional support
Iíve grappled where to post this topic, itís painful to me, but not like the chronic pain I suffer from. Itís depressing and while I acknowledge I have depression itís about a journey from depression to living a full life again, and nor is it a topic for alcohol, addiction and recovery. Well it is, but itís no longer my need to document his journey backwards.

So, Iíve opted for the forum General mental health & emotional support, I hope and pray NTírs can continue to help me and offer support as I embark on this journey to finding me. Iíve used other forums on here and have always taken comfort in knowing I could turn to NT and itís emotional support I need right now. I need to be able to write my journey and have advice and support from the community I turn to in need. I am need of emotional support. https://www.neurotalk.org/forum85/

I have no idea how to move forward in terms of making arrangements to be sure I am financially secure. And as I keep telling my family who tell me how easy it all is. I am still supposed to be in hospital, I am unfit and cannot bend or twist. I am emotionally ill, Iím suffering with severe depression and anxiety so my mental health is also unstable. Iím trying to work from home so I can at least have some semblance of income come in, Iím struggling to work and concentrate, Iím struggling with just living. Some days I eat, others barely anything at all. I have cared for this man for 25 years, I have put his needs before mine always, I was the good wife. Now Iím just a fool, discarded when I am at my weakest.

So Iím inviting you to join me on the other forum and share your experiences and advice as I move forward. I understand if itís too hard a topic for some of you to join me on and if you are unable to do so, please know, the advice and love you have shared with me over these last 2 years will always be treasured.
