I can cope with its physical manifestation but, out of the blue, I find myself confronting its emotional aspect.

It's far worse.

It arises from the NPower nonsense about which I've been posting on CC, but seeing as how that is supposed to be amore light-hearted forum this doesn't seem to fit that criteria. We can all moan about the conglomerates, yes? :wink: I cannot be light-hearted about this so crave your indulgence.

Today I received from NPower a cheque made payable to my late Ma. I also received copies from my lawyer of Ma's death certificate plus a cheque from the Inland Revenue refunding my overpayment of inheritance tax.


Mr DD is being very patient with his weeping heap of a wife. I'm off to watch London Grammar on catch-up: their music is so very apt. DD

    So sorry, sometimes a cry is just what is needed. Not surprised it's all got on top of you, big organisations are so impersonal and insensitive. Just hope it gets sorted soon so that you can start to heal emotionally.

    Thank you everyone who replied, I appreciate your messages. This morning things are somewhat better and a sense of proportion has been determined. I think it was just the shock that, more than a year after her death, it is all now complete, done, finalised. There is nothing else to do (until NPower write to me demanding another £500 or so because once again they've mucked up their accounts :wink: ). DD

    I have nothing to add to my comments on your CC thread except ((((())))) That was a very powerful emotional package for one day - indeed, one evening when our resources are virtually used up anyway. I am pleased today seems a little brighter.

    Thank you - this morning I employed retail therapy as an aid to my emotional recovery :wink: and my masseuse has just been round to beat me up - my shoulders are a deal easier now, as is my neck, scalp and feet. I am oily. 8) DD
