Re: KEEPING IN TOUCH ON FORUM

Hi everyone, <:)> I haven't been around much lately, I think my new medication is messing with my head somewhat especially since I had to increase the dose. I feel kind of here, but not here, and kind of numb. Not sure I like it, but then again it's better than the alternative, so I guess the numbne...

Star <:)>

Take it 15 minutes at a time if you need to. Are you getting help from anywhere else for your drinking? I'm sure your friend wasn't trying to humiliate you, just showing some concern. Keep posting, you CAN turn this around but you need to believe in yourself a little more.

Re: The Confession Parlour...

Hi all <:)> I haven't been around much lately as I've been back to work full time, and also trying to adjust to my additional bipolar meds. The result has been an episode of mania, and a few cans of lager with a very old friend on Saturday night. I think the lager was as a result of nostalgia, catch...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need help (NO GENERAL CHAT PLEASE)

Ben, one of my favourite quotes of recent times is this: "perspective is a luxury when your head is constantly buzzing with a swarm of demons". It stopped me in my tracks when I read it. It's good that you're thinking of the future, but it does sound a bit like it's overwhelming you at the moment. T...

Hi Maxxi, <:)> I'm so glad that things are working out for you and huge congratulations on being 5 weeks sober! As for work, I was in a similar situation to you not too long ago albeit for slightly different reasons, but I'd been off for 4 months too and was worried about going back. It had nothing ...

Re: SUPPORT/CHAT/GENERAL - January 2009

I haven't posted much over the last week or so, I'm a tad bit manic at the moment and my concentration is shot to bits! The EAF has been hanging around a bit too for the first time in a while now, so I'm trying to take my mind off it by doing stuff in the house that I've been putting off for ages. I...

Re: The Spirituality Connection

Bupster <:)> I'm sorry you're struggling with your anger and inability to forgive your ex. It is completely understandable that you feel that way. Forgiveness is so hard when you've been so badly hurt. It is totally a cliche, but time is a great healer and one day you will wonder why the hell you wa...

Re: January Hop

Hi Midnight, hope you're feeling a bit better today. You are so right, crisis services for mental health problems are either non-existent or virtually impossible to find. A&E don't tend to give people with thoughts of self-harm much priority, but that's mainly because they only have minimal training...

Re: I can't stop.

Ada, not much to add to what's already been said. You are so much a different person to when you first joined BE, you've had a couple of slips and that's all. This is all part of the recovery process, and you're continuing to learn more about yourself along the way. It could happen to any one of us ...

Hi Kevin, well done for getting through last night. Day 5 is always a bit of a bugger for some reason, but you did it! Bupster, your post resonates with me so much I could have written it myself. I've been catching up with loads of old friends on Facebook that I used to get drunk and stoned with. A ...
