Yup, I'm hearing it and feeling it.
I have lived through previous recessions, Lost everything back in the 80's, Worked like proverbial trojan, Got it all back, saved our home bla bla bla, Last year closed my business, processed the big picture, moved on, did the whole focus on quality of life and close to home important issues.
Took on board and put into practise all the positive speak, such as, walk or cycle off the stress/anxiety, cut the expenditure, which i did very drastically, I am in our home over 30 yrs, only mortgaged it 8 yrs ago for renovations.
The level of anxiety via extreme anger is lodged like a lump in my chest, I do daily battle between anger, fraustration and pretend I am keeping despair at bay.
For me its about the " GULF " the massive yawning gap between logic and the insanity being put forward in visible behaviour and non reasoning by Politicians, Last night when I read Mary Harneys statement " The amount of cuts in the Health service will be between 600k and 1 Billion " I just gave up.
I cannot emigrate, I'm trapped, Have a family member with life long illness, I no longer trust my own capacity pitted against such blatant insanity, Sorry if rant is too long.
No rant there. Similar position here, at work at mo (tg) stressed at lunchtime avoiding looking at the bills in my handbag that need to be acted on, a partner in and out of work (self employed construction), childcare fees, mortgage/ o/draft, entitled to no help etc. Feeling really low today not helping that I am now on the nico patches..fags have to go, nothing else to cutback on.
I HATE THIS COUNTRY AT THE MO, TRAPPED, F IN TRAPPED...
where is the LEADERSHIP.
