Re: General Support and Chat

Avocado and Rachel, I can’t praise rehab enough! I was in rehab twice, once for 5 days and then 2 years later for 7 days. I have the best memories of those days! I learned so much about addiction and how to overcome it, plus a lot of self help lessons and so much more! The group therapy was the bes...

Re: General Support and Chat

Avocado, the being brave bit is doing things even though you are scared. You may find rehab goes quite quickly. I was in for 4 weeks first time round and they kept telling me it wasn't enough. (And maybe it wasn't as I went back several times.) Hopefully your children can visit at the weekends. Goo...

Re: Family Matters

The decree nisi is coming up soon and then the final divorce. He is deliberately doing and saying things to upset me I don't kno...

Re: General Support and Chat

Thank you Rachel and Martha, Sometimes I don't feel brave I feel scared but because this is such a big scary thing I'm doing maybe I am being brave even though I text my best friend instead of telling her in person. I'm worried as my husband is being so much more horrible to me since I filed for div...

Re: General Support and Chat

Where are you from guy brush? I'm from the UK and I got funded for a 2 week inpatient rehab. It took 6 months to get there but I did probably when I most need it. If you are in the UK I can tell you how to go about getting help. You're right, I do hate myself for how I've become but I've actually me...

I will just tell the others I'm not close to that I'm helping out my mum and doing stuff to the house and garden. Why do I feel nervou...

Re: General Support and Chat

Hi everyone, just popped on, read a few posts. I've been on numerous antidepressants but for some reason sertraline did not work for me at all. I gave it a chance and was on it for a good 6 months before I realised it wasnt going to work. Citalopram did work for me initially but this year since my m...

Thank you trojan, I was up late last night so worried but spoke to my husband this morning he has agreed he will ask his manager if he can work from home to take care of the children for 2 weeks.

Re: Should I let him go now to save the pain ?

Thank you everyone. I'm doing lots of research. I will let you know how it goes. Unfortunately there's no saving our marriage mostly for my boys sakes so they don't think it's ok to treat a woman the way my husband treats me. Also for me as I beleive I will be a lot happier without him.

Well done all of you. You should be so proud whether you're on day 1 or day 7. I'm doing rubbish. I spoke to my doctor today. I've gone from insomnia to sleeping 12 hours a night sometimes more, sometimes less. Tiredness and brain fog all the time. Dr said try vitamin D. Try exercising each day. (Wh...
