      Hi Tina, don't go for a drive if you are upset, a fast walk around the block to clear your head maybe?

      Tina, it sounds like you need to visit the hospital emergency department. The last place you need to be is behind the wheel of an automobile. Please take care of yourself. PLEASE TAKE CARE OF YOURSELF! You are in a crisis situation right now, let someone else (hospital) make decisions for you. David

      i#ve onl y got 5mg I suppose i could try and cut them in half but would that be enough. The only thing in my mind at the moment to to tey and stop these images and thoughts make then go away---options is take drugs to calm down, go out for a mad drive or actiion them which I don't want to do deep dpwn but  they wont go away at he moment.

      I cut my diazepam in half, and sit in front of the telly and try and focus on that. Don't drive, please! Jump up and down like a jumping jack, drink a glass ofncold water, look at the tv screen and focus on it. Write back to us, we will try to help as much as we can. Do you have a friend who could come over?

      Hi Tina, good to have a vent and let it out. I hit those places too. Porridge sometimes helps me in the evenings, comfort food and something warm inside. Hope you feel better soon.

      Well, I guess you know how much others care, and you are not alone. Don't think that you are bothering anyone when you ask for help. And, I live in the US, and spent my life working in the medical / rescue field 31.5 years. I think, and would give advice based on our way of handling emergencies. And injuries of the "mind" are just as much, in some cases, as any other injuries, and need treatment as well. I don't know what your religious beliefs are, but I just had a prayer for you. David

      Back from my walk, its getting dark here now, still crying but not so up tight the thoughts are still there but not as vivid. Thank you David for your prayer and Cintapoppy for your concern, I think I wil be able to speak now so I am going the ring the Samaratins who have helped me too in the past when I have been in very difficult positions. Thanks you so much for your support you don't know how much they mean to me as I feel so alone....

      Thankyou 

      Tina

      Hi Tina, just picked up on your posting, glad to see you are getting support here, and some good advice. Driving after taking benzo meds is not advisable so glad you took the walk instead. One thing to remember is that exercise can have similar effect to a sedative medicine, and it is obviously preferable to taking a med. It doesn't necessarily fix things but provides some relief. I am trying to get out on my bike or running and although it is not something I am enjoying like normal it does help calm things. If you are in the countryside are there good places to walk? and Maybe take a music player with you and pop the headphones in. Planning the walk before you go out gives you something else to focus on too. Maybe there is someone you know who has a dog that needs walking? Hang in there Tina.

      Hi I didn't take the diazapram in the end, as still unsure about mixing them. I have loads of places to go walking living in Scotland, quite often have my music playing too, but I do enjoy hearing the birds singing or the peace and quiet. Cycling or running is not for me, never been a runner even in my school years. I do attend the gym several times a week and swim.Do you run or cycle long distances or just for pleasure. 

      Bed soon as got to get up early tomorrow to catch 7.30 bus for a days training. What fun!!!

      I am feeling a lot calmer now thanks to everyone these things just seem to hit me out of no where. Cheers Tina

      I'm glad to hear you are ok and hope you have a good nights sleep. I have run marathons before and done some bigger cycling events. Right now as mentioned it's a little bit of a way to clear the way I am feeling. I would be reaching for a sedative some days but not keen on taking them, 3.5 weeks since I last took one and not keen on taking them again.
