    Jacques i am so pleased things turend around for you.. remember there is rehab options for a lot of people too if ever you need it.. a few posts back you were considering taking your life, see how things change and improve, that would have been disaster for anyone around you and would have affected them for the rest of their lives.. I had a close friend who suicided, everyone was impacted forever. It plagues their minds for the rest of their life. Believe me it ruins people that are left here and cuts lives short when you never know whats just around the corner.. now your life is improving, there is always a solution, there is always another option. Always remember that. However bleak things seem, there is always always something else.. you maybe cant see it at that excact moment but it changes, nothing stays the same, its temporary.
    So relieved you are here to tell the tale Jaques..

    Lizbeth i am so pleased you are going to ban.. well done.
    Dont beat yourself up too much about this slip. If you can get back on the horse now thats great and just continue on now you can only learn from it.
    Youve been under a lot of stress, i have had to look at different ways of dealing with stress, i found a meditation app so i have been trying that , you just play one and lay down and shut your eyes and listen to a guided one its great… anything that helps.

    Hi there
    I am so glad to hear that your family have been so supportive to you that is wonderful. What i am concerned about is your talk of suicide and how after you mentioned to your doctor you couldnt have the anti depressants incase you take them all then she let you come home? I am amazed that you are feeling this way and someone from the medical profession just let you go. Mon from the way you are talking about suicide i would suggest you go check in with a professional and tell them exactly how you are feeling, i dont think its wise to be listening to you talk of suicide and then just ask how your day is it seems a little alarming to me and i am concerned for your safety right now.
    I understand where you are at and have been there myself before mentally. I cant see someone talk of suicide on here and not say anything.
    Please seek help. I am really happy for you about your family helping and happy for you with your gamble free time…
    Please seek help and if you are about come to chat

    Funny

    i dont cope well with christmas, i dont cope with the whole time from December till January, it does my head in.
    I know i sound like the spoiler of holidays or something it just makes me crazy. I find it just chaos and kind of deal with the normal days so much easier

    Well done on starting your new thread, i am glad you started one and didnt leave.
    I dont want anyone to leave ever!! haha, the little community we have here has to stay together.
    I am sorry to hear of all the thigns going on with the family. This thing with your mum has been going on a long time with her being abusive. Its awful for you to go through.
    Wonderful to hear you are with the grand baby..
    I hope all sorts itself out ok soon. Good thing is Lizbeth you are not resorting to gambling.. stay safe
