@Pudding i am on antidepressants low dose and they are helping me I am sure . Not wanting to be on them forever but they are surely helping the knot in my stomach and helping me sleep well
I lost my husband 6 weeks ago and the pain at times is overwhelming. I am not great at crying but find myself welling up on a daily basis. I find everything reminds me of him and I have just been in bits again clearing out the biscuit cupboard. I can’t sleep for longer than a couple of hours and food is a no no at the moment. It is a relief to be able to share on here as at least I am not so alone. Take care and hugs.
@Billie7 it’s so hard to bear its your heart has been cut in two . The horror of it is too difficult to describe. I had to get some diazepam for the first few weeks. I am on anti depressant now and that has calmed the knot in my stomach. They help me sleep as well . To lose my soulmate at 58 is too much for me to comprehend. It’s 4 months now and he has left a big hole in my life
I am going to see the doctor this week. I don’t want to go on sleeping tablets but the lack of sleep is making me quite weak. I know how you feel I feel cheated, I am 50 years old and we were together 26 years. I feel like my future has been stolen.Thanks for reaching out.
I have just got an air fryer. I put a sweet potato in it with sausage. Kept opening it and prodding it as I wasn’t sure how long to put it in. I put in two spring rolls and vegetable samosas. They were crisp I. Outside and middle frozen so put in microwave as thought is is quicker.
So glad as if used microwave to start doesn’t crisp
I find some timings on line for the air fryer. Still a lot of things are guess work, I would prefer things over cooked rather than under. Did some sausages. They came out lively. Xx.
Yes I wonder if I can use my silicon cupcake moulds to put cake mixture in or if it will melt them
It won’t melt them. I use silicon liners to stop having to wash the drawer every time.
@Enorac the air fryer is good if you have a temperature probe then u can see if hot in middle . I got one from Temu
I was given low dose anti depressants side effect sleep but when used more because on lot other tabs decided to cut back again as kidneys not doing well. It is always balancing act. I ought to do more exercise to make me sleep.
Was copying exercises in TV this morning so we
@Enorac most things are quicker in the air fryer than the oven. Some packaging now gives times for air fryers too. It is a bit trial and error to start with. You can use silicon, tin foil or any ovenproof container in them. Hope that helps.
Yes it does help thank you I will use all with confidence now. Cooking is therapeutic at least feel achieved something when try new things. Trying to sort out things need doing with house. Feels like climbing a mountain which is nuts in one sense but I get so far then seems energy goes. Today huge puddle again bottom of fridge. Alexia said filters need cleaning. He would have done that. So all new for me. Ended up mopping up with towels for now.
Yes ought to get one of those then be useful
Oops I meant get a temperature probe
@Enorac I sympathise having to deal with stuff our husbands would have. I dread something breaking down. So far I have learned how to cut the grass (including buying a strimmer as the old one packed in), a leak in the roof, broadband not working and getting tyres on the car. A pat on the back to all of us navigating this
That’s really good going. I have sorted car insurance and tax but now need to find a roofer as I have a small leak in the utility room. I am going to tackle that tomorrow. I will be honest anything to do with the TV is flooring me so I am going to read the instructions I am determined to do what I can myself. Xxx
The internet is a godsend when trying to find how to videos.
It is indeed but I do find myself scrolling for hours when I get started. It’s a distraction. X
There is a facebook page air fryer recipes for beginners worth looking at. Gives some good ideas
My husband had left our hob locked before he went into hospital. I needed the internet to unlock it. Still haven’t reset the click on the oven but then not really bothered if it has the correct time or not.
