      Loving your status Roy, making positive changes can make the difference :57439eb60db27_thumbup:

  18. If we help someone else today it may take the focus away from us and our issues. 

  19. When the OCD bites, we do need to carry on as normal,  not give it belief.

  21. Maybe doctors might soon "prescribe" OCD-UK membership to help their patients.

      Andrea

      LOL! It is so true :yes:

  22. OCD bags front seat and hogs our life. CBT helps put it into the wings.

      I follow my urologist's advice and drink a lot of water and squash as it helps to keep the urinary system in good trim (I have kidney stones). 

      So I am just drinking rather more than normal. And boy does it slip down right now 💦

      Oh yes, it's always best to keep well hydrated in this weather :yes: 

      I've just started drinking remix vimto squash and it's delicious :)

      It's cooler but still clammy, but not having to drink so much. 

      It was just the right temperature down at "The Cobblers" football stadium 🏟 last night, and the location (it's recessed and surrounded by high grass borders) was magical, as the grass had just been cut and the smell was divine. 

      And, of course, I had to have a drop of sponsor Carlsberg's ale (they have a massive brewery in Northampton).
