Just caught up, but hope you all had a good Christmas. Emma is doing so very well, and so lovely to see all of your smiling faces. Hope you all have a healthy, and happy new year, and that Emma continues to improve. Very good wishes to you, your wife and son. x

I think Emma had the equivalent of Ď buyers remorseí on Boxing Day having done so well on Christmas Day
But it has proved that she can do it ( as a one off at least) if she really pushes herself.
Itís now just trying to get her to do it more regularly

Wishing everyone a happy and healthy New Year and throughout 2020

So , three months have passed since my last update.
Everything was quiet initially. Everyone was busy working in January.
Then we had a lovely break in Tenerife. But panicky on the way out as Storm Dennis threatened to hijack us on the way, we then had a lovely few days with fabulous weather before the sandstorm hit creating an eerie atmosphere followed by an anxious 24 hours seeing if we could get safely home on time. We got lucky both on the way out and back.
Emma showed she still has a way to go eating wise. We visited Tenerife 2 years ago and even though we went to many of the same restaurants for familiarity, there remained anxiety and she really struggled to move away from kids menus .

The morning after we landed was when it was announced someone in a hotel in Tenerife had corona virus. Little did we know then how things would develop.
Emma is still working at M&S , but now in the food section and doing less days. It keeps her hands in and she seems ok with the risk element , which is encouraging. It also stops her from being at home with the rest of us ( I am WFH and DS off college) all day everyday . We all need a bit of space. There have been some anxious meals, she has more eyes making sure she doesn't fall short in her eating. She cannot get away with missing snacks etc so much as if she was in work more.

Her OCD with routine is showing through. We watched a film as a family on Saturday ( rare event ) and a panicked cry when realising that with just 10 minutes of the film left, we had to stop it so that tea could be prepared so as it to not run beyond her 7pm ' comfort zone'

The biggest issue is the supermarkets. Getting what she wants when her regular things aren't available is difficult. Our daily walk on Sunday was about 4 miles round trip to get crumpets from Aldi !

On the whole we are coping ok . Not quite so sure though how we will get on for a stretch of weeks in a run. But we will try.

Thanks for the update. This situation is difficult for everyone especially those with MH issues. My ds has gone into total shutdown, even going into the garden is almost impossible for him with his anxiety. I wish you all and Emma best wishes to get through with hopefully only small steps backward that will be overcome just that bit easier when itís over xx

Thanks for the update. Fingers crossed things get easier once the new routine settles. Itís a big change for everyone. If there are any non perishables that Emma has that you canít get hold of I would be more than happy to see if they have them in my supermarket and post to you. Just let me know.
