    Hi Bikerjools49, I am really sorry to hear about your Day, are you there on your own or do you have a friend/Family members there with you? Try and remember that your Body is going through alot at the moment and your Head is bound to be all over the place, things will get better. Try to remember that the anxiety and depression are a symptom of the Battle with Booze, just like a sneeze with a cold, it's just something the body does, try to ride that for a while. I would also advise that you take the Diazepam if you are feeling like this, that is what it is there for. What you are doing is great, but you don't need to punish yourself. Are you seeing any specialists at the moment? Sorry about all the questions, hope you feel better soon, AL.

      Well That's a permanent solution to a Temporary Problem. I'm also guessing that you are thinking to much about others and think they are more fragile than they are. I don't know what your relationship with your Son is like but if I were him, I would much rather have a Mother who recognises a problem and is trying hard to make things better, than a Mother that has taken her own Life and left me with so many questions that can never be answered. You don't have to mention the Alcohol at the moment, or you could tell a little white lie about how the Alcohol is making you feel a little better in the here and now, you are aware that it could become a problem. You do need to speak to someone face to face, otherwise things will just go round and round, that's not fair on you. I know it's a Time when you really don't feel like seeing anyone but please, take that first step, you can't bottle this one. x

      Excellent reply Postal. Interesting how bikerjools should chat with her son. Very sensible and sensitive for certain. Nothing more to add but The Samaritans are also a good heaven to reach. They can guide and assist you I think. I do wish you all the best. Robin

    I know what you mean. I often feel it would do me a favour if the booze meant I just never woke up again. I can’t believe how messed up life has become 😢
