I am at work... I took the tube on the Victoria Line to Euston then had to walk quite a way to the office. I was dodging camera crews and police tape around Warren Street... mum called me and said she thinks she saw me walking in the distance on Sky News... lol

Susan, hope your trip in was okay today too and that there were not too many problems at the station

^ Yeah we just heard that too - Stockwell, South London - Victoria and Northern Lines. The tube is all shut again ...

They have also said that a Mosque in Hackney, East London has been surrounded by armed police.

I hope they find these f u c k e r s.

I was just talking to someone here about how ppl feel differently in situations like this. I think part of my anxiety is the fact that I don't know how I will get home again later ... I might just go back to Liverpool Street again and get the overland train.

I also just at my desk... I had my counselling session last night (for depression etc) and I did say that I think that in general I have been on a high, yet the events of the last few weeks have had a knock on effect. Because I am vunerable to suddenly break down and have that black cloud above me, things like this almost double the effect on those feelings...

But anyway, I should stop blabbling because I know you are all getting fed up now of reading this stuff... blah...

Gilly, and the rest of you, stay strong, and stay safe. My prayers are with you all. And please, don't even think you need to stop "blabbing". When I heard that something had happened, I couldn't even find up to date news reports, but TCS had everything. So if it helps you to keep posting about your fears, and everything that is going on, it also helps us in the "rest of the world" know what is really happening.

That was yesterday, there were two incidents - one outside Downing St on Whitehall, the other outside Warren Street in UCH...

This is something different today down in South London. Nothing has really been realeased about yesterdays shootings/arrests though from what I have read. Just waiting to hear more news on todays stuff.

Thanks guys

I just read about the man shot.

Gilly, I'm sporting my British flag shirt today in support of you guys!

Praying for you...and all of us...that peace will come.

They have a bag that was blown open but not destroyed.. so they will get clues to who is making the bombs, there could be DNA on it..

Gilly,

We care and want to know. You have been under tremedous stress and if talking to us help relieve some of it, I know all of us will gladly listen. I normally stay away from forums while I'm at work, but during the first week and this week, I have had to check in and see how you are doing.

I know that feeling of wanting to get home. We've had blizzards here (starts the day sunny and then the storm clouds move in). I'm listening constantly to the weather reports trying to figure out how or if I'm getting home. Listening to road closures, delays, etc. The anxiety can be brutal.

How is your foot doing? Is it getting better or is all of the walking these last two days affecting it?

We will do everything we can do help you find the strength we know you have.

Jana

PLEASE FEEL FREE to turn to us TCSERS for support! That's what we are here for. ...

post #141 of 149
Hi Gilly,

I don't think you should ever feel like you are babbling to us.

These past two weeks have been stressful for you and I admire your courage.
I look forward to reading your version of the events going on in London. I can read all the news to get details- but you are there and I marvel at the technology that allows us to get instant news from half way around the world.

I think all us TCS'ers support each other and I appreciate everyone's advise or comments.

Hang in there its Friday, go home rest the foot, enjot Harry Potter and lots of beverages AND RELAX!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take care.

Ok well, I have lost my bottle... I have been on and off this afternoon and also, my tummy is badly upset now

My tube line is working this evening (with delays and two stations closed) but I am no way as confident as I was this morning. I am going to leave here at 5pm, get a cab to Liverpool Street and take the mainland train. I can't face it tonight considering yesterday there were suspected bombers on my tube line at my station, then today on my tube line someone was shot dead.

Thanks guys again

Gilly stay strong chick! I'm leaving now but i'll text you on the way!

Thanks Susan, if I don't text back too much it's because I want to save my credit just in case I need it. I feel like I am slightly over-reacting but then I spoke to a friend who uses my line home too. I asked her what time she was leaving, could I go with her etc (but she left earlier on today and took the tube) she said she does not blame me if I am too scared... and I just tried booking a cab but can't get one - so many ppl want out of London tonight, yet so many ppl will stay and carry on.

My journey home was okay really. I managed to flag a cab to take me the 1/2 hour ride to Liverpool St. It cost me £12 mind you but I don't care today. I could have taken the tube home on my normal route but it just didn't feel right this evening. I got on the overland train, no problems. Then just before we were due to pull into my station, came the announcement that Walthamstow Central (where I live) was closed because of a security alert... So after another diversion and a local cab to take me to my front door, I finally go home (picking up a tub of Hageen Daz on the way).

I went to see my neighbour and she made me a strong coffee with a rather large helping of brandy added

Just to pre-warn you, I don't think I will be online this weekend. In fact, I want some time out from internet/tv/newspapers etc. I have also just spoken to my sister and a few friends because I am feeling pretty depressed tonight.

Thanks everyone, you have been truly wonderful and I know I keep saying it but I really, really do appreciate it (and so does the rest of London and Britain!)

Gilly xx

Gilly - have a lovely pleasant weekend - you're so right, you need to take a break from all of this.

I'm so relieved to be able to say that my son phoned us today to ask our opinion and we said that we would avoid travelling through London today because traffic is unlikely to be going anywhere fast. Thankfully he devised a work around and is picking up the coach much closer to Dover - not going into London at all!
