Sorry to hear this Lisa,these are everyday stresses that can happen in life that we have to deal with, try not to think about the future,i know financial worries can be a huge stress, i know i been there with £150,000 on top of my head because of someone putting me in this position,it wrecked my relationship,i was at war with liars and people trying to get money out of me,i nearly topped myself, how i kept going, i do not know, i had strong will maybe, i was a mess at that time 4 years ago for 2 years , i went through crap for over 2 years because of someone else, not because of me,one of the worst things in my life, i dealt with it, cost me all my savings, everything and i had nothing, i got through it in the end, what is wrong with your car Lisa?

shit, sorry about this Lisa, you been through a lot,yes my ex partner from years back went through abuse , i know the suffering, one needs support though its difficult, i gave my ex loads of support but, its not easy and she lost her father aswell because of it , i hope things will improve in the future,dont know what else to say as you been through a lot ,i am sorry you had all this happen to you Lisa X

Lisa. I know where you are coming from. Been there, apart from abusive marriage. I know what it is to be abused, to be a single mom, a dad whom never loved me, locked me outside in a dog cage, shitty job and no maintenance from ex husband to help with our children. All that stress. We can choose, to either sit back and let this stress devour us and let our children suffer, or we get up and fight back. Lisa, you ARE a strong lady. To be able to go through all of that and STILL STANDING, shows me how awesome you are. You are a fighter and you tell your P not to get too excited because you are ready for any flare. Stay positive and don't let anything bring you down.

Sorry to hear this Michelle,just adding to the mix,my childhood was crap ,stepmother who didnt want me,her sons gave me a hard time ,mental, physical abuse, i had learning difficulties that just added to more problems and insults aswell as being a very flakey weak child, my dad dismissed anything i said about the step mum hitting me etc, i am sure i had faults but, i was a child and confused, i thought my first stepmum was my real mum and she was okay, i thought i had real brothers and sisters, my first step mum had 2 boys and one girl , i had 2 step mums, my first step mum left when i was 6 years old, i was very confused then my dad met this one who is still with and her 4 children aswell as me the black sheep, my dad was useless, i expect he wonders why i dont bother with him, hes not a bad man but i dont know,my second stepmum said my dad was going to put me in a home she told me when i was little , i wish they did, i could had been happier :) seems a lot of us have a lot of crap,i moved on years ago though one never forgets

I'm sorry John and It must have been difficult while having Psoriasis as well. The way parents treat their children has got an effect on how they see the world. Abusement leave psychological scars. How does a child deal with such abuse? Like you said, you were young and innocent, what better did you know? I believe that every moment in life is an opportunity to grow, change, and transcend. God is my Saviour and I know lots of people don't believe in God but He has helped me through all the obstacles in life. We have grown to be strong. What doesn't kill us makes us stronger right? Black sheep or not John, you are awesome and you've turned out to be a great guy. Don't forget that. :)


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Ah thank you, you are a great and awesome lady too michelle aswell as everyone here , you been through a lot aswel,funny thing is, my second step mums children of whom my dads still with ,gave my dad and her lots of problems after i left home so all the crap continued ,my stepbrother hit my dad after my dad had leg surgery from his motorcycle accident ,all of the stepbrothers are alcoholics, one cant cant look after himself so hes pampered and lives at theirs and has been for years, though he was the best one out of the lot of her boys , i left when i was 17, best thing i did ,i was independent and struggled to live but i did it as one has too to survive, my step sisters husband at that time when i was 17,said you done the best thing,i remember that well,he knew i had taken a lot of crap, i think one does get stronger for sure and wiser maybe , i know its in the past, maybe why i understand and sympathize like you,Lisa and others,if i was raised with a silver spoon up my ass, how would i understand,,why so many people like psychiatrists and mental health professionals have had some sort of suffering in the past and understand :)

I was going to train to be a mental health worker quite a few years ago as many thought i had good potential to do this but, decided to be a plumber :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Thank you John. You made a wise choice and by that you became much more. You inspire people and maybe you should've become a mental health worker. It would suit you good. Now If you have become one, we would have never have met you on here. You job is here. On Flaym.


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Ha ha,well , i think i would had still come here, i am not good with paper work etc Michelle, i was always told by people since a young age i was good with my hands and thats not just with the girlfriends ,so i decided to stay manual in my jobs :) It was mentioned me doing this was because of my ex years ago, because i helped her in lots of ways get through a lot of her passed abuse and move on to a degree ,she thought and other friends thought i could do it as i am a listener and i dont judge which is a good trait i suppose to have for this,well a lot of us have inspired persons with this condition here, we have first hand knowledge and hope to help the new comers,they see us positive and maybe have a few laughs on the way, thats great to me as we all share the same problem but in different states with psoriasis, thank you Michelle , you are wonderful :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

hahahahaha not just with the girlfriends. Such confidence John! lol. Wonderful.

I'm sure it wasn't easy on you as well by helping your ex. You've done a great job and you've shown courage and strength. Plumber or not, we are happy you're here and I have to say that since I've been on Flaym, I have never EVER heard you or other Flaymers on here (apart from one) being judgmental and that's what I love. Everyone is spreading love and that's what makes this site so great. The inspiration and motivation that comes off of here is amazing and it doesn't matter how scarred one is. Even though we have P, we have a lot to say thank you for. Thank you John.


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

No no michelle thank you :) It wasnt easy your right michelle, it was very traumatic,She became very confident with me and said a lot about her passed which no one else knew ,her passed boyfriends were very nasty so she couldnt move on ,it was a shame as we were friends before we got together years ago in 2006 and had been friends for 3 years before that,she was the person who put me through hell with the house we had and she messed up and all the dept was put on me aswell as myself doing building work on the house, the miles of traveling to work, i still helped her out then with stuff and let her have a room in the house for storage for longer than should had been, it didnt help my relationship with my last ex,i wanted a quiet life,my past ex before wanted to be friends on facebook but, i was so angry at that time and was best not to, i may add her now as its a long time passed, shame we didnt remain friends, who knows we could still be friends its passed :) thank you michelle , yes its a great site , i have seen so many come and go in this year and a half i been here, Thank you Michelle :)

Michelle @michelle1021

Sometimes it's better to say goodbye John. Get it over and done with and move on. You've been through a lot and now...It's 'John time'. Have a blast and enjoy your single life. The right woman will show up. Someone whom would not take advantage of your kindness. We just need to be patient.

😢❤💜 Got teary eyed here. I am sorry for the hardships you have each endured. You are warriors! ❤ I just Love Y'all and admire your strength, grace and determination.

I think Lean on Me, would be a super theme song for Flaym..

🎵Sometimes in our lives we all have pain
We all have sorrow
But if we are wise
We know that there's always tomorrow
Lean on me, when you're not strong
And I'll be your friend
I'll help you carry on
For it won't be long
'Til I'm gonna need
Somebody to lean on🎵🎵


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

@ John. How was the movie star wars? Good? My daughter would love to go watch that movie. I always go early as well, I deps the better seats. While grocery shopping, did you have some of it while browsing ? lol


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Yes i thought it was quite good, though to me , Han solo is harrison ford ,the actor seemed more like a teenager to me, i would say it was a good film,chewy was great as always,i was nibbling on my nuts and drinking water throught out the film as always , well worth to see it thanks :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

I'm glad you liked it. Well you would love all the star wars movies anyway! lol. When I go to the cinema I have to have popcorn. I don't care about the sweets, I just want my milo power (which I buy myself before going to the cinema) and poppies. I want to watch black panther.


 john,Chewweeeeee
john,Chewweeeeee @chewbacca

Cool, the movie Venom will be out soon i see on adverts :) i was reading about bad foods on the net, popcorn was put down as one of the real baddies, it surprised me ,dont let it put you off though michelle,i am gonna have enough bad stuff this week,i got my shopping,got a lot of good and bad, 2 large bottles of diet coke, only cheap ones though, they are all bad , to go with my vodka, a crate of beer,burgers, buns, and i will do a huge salad to take aswell as rice and maybe some gluten free pasta thrown in just to bulk it ,yes should be a good movie :)


Michelle
Michelle @michelle1021

Oh I would love to watch Venom. I'm a Marvel fan. I know that popcorn is bad but for some reason it does nothing to my P. The only time I will itch or my P get inflamed is when I ad flavored salt, like cheese & chives but I don't. a little bit of plain salt is enough. I don't always eat popcorn but when I do....I do it with a bang. John, you have a lot of bad food there, but more alcohol than food! lol. Apart from that, You will have an awesome time.

I used to do 4x4 off roading and we went to Kgalagadi in Botswana Africa . It is a transfrontier park. There is nothing apart from wild/tame animals and there everyone is for himself. We were a convoy of 4 vehicles. Mostly men of course and we were only 2 women who went with. The men packed, 6 cases of beer, 8 bottles of brandy, 4 bottles of rum, 10 cases of coke, and 2 cases of WATER. If I did not perform about water, we would not have had any! Now ALL of this was for 1 week only. Let me tell you, before we got to our camp, 4 bottles of brandy were finished already. None of the people were drunk as it was too hot. John, you should've seen it. You would've loved t be there lol. all that beer!
