Re: July General Support and Chat

Hi peeps, I needed someone to talk to so here I am. Used to post on the SOS forum but my needs are less 'SOS' now, so I guess that's an improvement. Been off drink for about 3 months now thanks to the wonders of Antabuse. Am on the waiting lift for psychotherapy, by the time I get to the top of the ...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Hi guys, Thanks for the support. I post on this thread because I am in a very bad way emotionally and often come close to harming myself one way or another. I feel justified in using this thread at the moment. Hopefully, soon I will be stable enough to move to a more general thread. I am planning so...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Hi Guys, needed to talk so here I am. I am feeling really low. Still sober, obviously, cos I'm on Antabuse, but that doesn't mean I'm not craving alcohol. I'd kill for a drink, just to lose myself for a little while. I am feeling really overwhelmed with everything. Hubby has been doing a lot for me ...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Hi guys, Thought I'd drop by. You might remember I posted last week about having to give a staff member his notice and how awful I felt, and some of you said some very wise things which really helped. Well, this was to have been his last week, he would only have been working today and tomorrow as he...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Morning all, I have just been showing my staff member all my brill displays I did last night :) I think I feel a bit better today, which is odd cos I've actually had a hard start to the day with dogs playing up, car in garage so had to walk to work, had a v disturbed night with sleep etc so am reall...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Hi Linda, we both posted at the same time so I hadn't seen your post when I sent mine in. I do know what you mean about thinking of 'feelings' as a separate thing - a friend told me, many years ago, how she coped with her panic attacks - she began to talk to the panic, saying to it, 'ok, you do your...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Thanks guys ;)? It's true that it's an old habit of mine to think I'm to blame for everything and that I have no right to be happy or right or am entitled to stand up for myself, etc etc. I'm going to ask hubby to help me list my personal taskes etc etc - he is very good at not letting emotions clou...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Hi guys, I'm writing this feeling absolutely awful - not because of drink (I'm still on Antabuse so can't drink even if I wanted to, and, believe me, I do), but because I've just given one of my staff a week's notice to leave. I believe I had reasons to do this, but he still manages to turn it round...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Hi guys, thanks for the nice things you've all said :) I've just bought the book you said about off Amazon, tiptop, I might even bother to read it ;) I have to kind of fill my day with nice distractions that don't involve self abuse of any sort. It's hard tho. I have realised how much I'm in lousy s...

Re: SOS - Post here if you need Help (No General Chat Please

Hi guys, had to re-register here as for some reason my old login details wouldn't work (I was tetsmom2 so I'm not too far different now). Looks like someone has deleted masses of posts, I'm sure there were hundreds of pages here when I last logged in, hopefully it was intentional and not a breakdown...
