    Good for you Kim!! This is an excellent post. So positive. I have been on these meds for 12 months and they do tend to flatten out the highs and the lows. I hope one day to understand this debilitating condition enough to leave the chemicals alone, but for now they keep me functioning if not fantastically at least well enough to recognise that I want to get better.

    You have a good sister. Hang on to family, open your heart to your friends here, keep posting and you will help and be helped.

    Take care of you too. xx

    Hi Melbi. You have not been pathetic! This is a natural part of the condition from which we all suffer. Please don't be so hard on yourself. But you must realise that the anxiety/stress is a problem which needs to be addressed before you return to work. Hope your time with Nigel was full of affection and I know he supports you. He may not know how to cater to all your needs but he cares, of that I am sure. Hang on to that Melbi. And as for delivery people, they are just doing a job and they meet all sorts of people all day long. Why should you be boring/run o' the mill/ dull?

    Anxiety is debilitating. I have swuffered from its extremes and it is very unpleasant. But you can outrun it in the end by trying to concentrate on the positives in your life and letting go of the things which create anxiety for you. And you are lucky to have Melissa and your daughter there to keep perspective. Hang in there Melbi. You are a good soul and a loving, caring person. xxx

    Hey Melbi. Just re-read my post and realised how sad you would be that I'd \"swuffered\". It's really bad! lol! I feel pretty good tonight as I've been able to help the daughter of my partner. She's a great kid and it is absolutely wonderful to be able to give!

    You have given heaps to all of us here Melbi. You've made a difference. That is remarkable, given your own problems at the moment.

    Have you heard from Katy? Last post I saw she was upbeat and it was great to read her posts. Katy, let us know how you're going!!

    And PJ, how are you? Being upside down in Australia I can't keep up with everything all the time, but it's 28 degrees in my loungeroom, 10% humidity, all windows and doors open for the light breeze, cockatoos have stopped arguing for the night, and all's well. Take care children. xx

    I've just received a phone call from work! 5 minutes later 2 text from work asking how I am and to say everyone sends their love and asking after me.

    Amazing isn't it how it can help us if people just show us they care.

    Just tried to make myself and daughters some lunch and ended up making an absolute mess! Now in bed because I feel all stressed because the kitchen is a mess - how can making a spot of lunch create such a mess?

    Washing and ironing really piling up and that is making me panicky and stressful ~ thnakfully daughters have both told me to come to bed out of the way ~ not to worry about house etc and they will deal with it. Will they?

    Then they suggest when I wake up I go for a long soak in bath then they will give me a make over ~ oh my giddy aunt :shock:

    Yes. Best thing for me right now is a sleep ~ close my eyes to the world ~ to my stresses and panics ~ to my house getting in a bigger mess day by day!

    Well ~ I am happy that some people at work have made contact ~ that means a lot to me and will, I'm quite sure, help me get better quicker.

    I do worry too much! :oops:

    Breezman ~ if we can't help each other ~ who can we help ~ I have found so much help, support and comfort here ~ I want to be able to offer it back to others.

    Stay strong everyone ~ together we can fight our demons.

    Kim, I'm with Melbi. Join the chatroom and chew the fat! Melbi, we've got to have a release valve or we explode. If the Codeine gets you sleep, you're better off with it than without. As for me, I've had a beer now and then but you really did catch me at a point before I had gone too far with the whiskey. Thank you. It is comparatively a lot easier for me to stop drinking whiskey when I can have an occasional beer, than it is for you to cold turkey the only things that brings you relief with no substitute. I'm happy for you that you've been able to cope as well as you have.

    If it were not for sleep, how the hell would we stay awake? That sounds so deceptively beguiling and simple, but it ain't!!

    Hang in there Melbi. W care for you. xxx
