I'm back at 'my' house. It is so lonely without mini lion and I feel almost frightened to be here after everything that's happened. Anyway, fingers crossed I get a decent amount of sleep tonight. Not sure if that's gonna happen but I'm here and I'll try 😬

Good morning Nifhtjar!    I hope you had good sleep.   I am guessing ‘mini lion ‘ was your noisy neighbour?   Is she/he gone ?

I got given lorazepam again thankfully 😮💨 I’m at a very low point again, I know it’s not smart to abuse benzos and I haven’t been given enough to do that, but right now I wish they could take me away in the floaty heaven they provide 

Sorry to hear you are feeling awful.   My doctor started me on Clonazepam again.  (Rivotril). I rarely take it because it makes me sleepy.

aw ive never taken clonazepam, do you take it at night? Would it help the anxiety the following day? Lorazepam just relaxes my whole body and mind and I dont feel so anxious, I had a pretty good day today in the end, I even ate in dinner with my flatmates and chatted and I never do that. Why can this drug not be apart of my regular cocktail 😞

Yes I take it at night.    Many years ago I was on it daily but my doctors have reduced my dosage.

Morning duck! I slept ok thankfully, but my neighbours weren't on their early shift this morning 😬 Mini lion was my furbaby who got very ill this year and is no longer with me 😢 I loved her very much. 

How are you doing today?

Good morning Nightjar and Duck.❤️I wish I wasn't the weirdo that woke up for an early shift even if I don't have to work.  I've been awake since what 4:30?😒

Oh no! I hope that it's not an ongoing thing and that you feel ok today :hugs:It feels like crap when you can't get enough sleep 🙁

I layed back down for a nap.  What woke me up?  A nail on my big toe was sharp and cut a big hole in the fitted sheet when I was sleeping so my leg was sticking through the hole of the sheet.🙄

Ha! I couldn't help but laugh at that one. Well, at least it's easily managed.... Get snipping and sweet dreams for you! 😉

Freddy Krueger had hold of that leg, and was trying to drag you into his world.  Lucky you woke up!🤠

Everyone who has the strength to pull away from the cravings and addictions are amazing people. I’m one of those who cant 🥲

I pulled away for a long time -- never came close to perfection, since cravings do transfer from one thing to the next, but they generally became less dangerous things.

Until lately. This summer has been so bad that I texted a suicide hotline for the first time. They asked about self-care, and the only two things that came to mind were ones that others would consider addictive / unhealthy. They honestly felt like my least bad options, like pressure valves that prevented something worse. I'm not proud of it, it's just how things are right now.

I get it, we all have those not so great ways of coping, but whatever works at the moment to keep us from doing something worse

Good morning Nightjar!  It’s 3 am my time.   I just clipped my toe nails.  They were long.  I barely have motivation to do things.   I did laundry as well.   I slept from 4pm to 9 pm last evening.  I wish I had more energy to do things.   How are you this Monday morning?

Good morning duck!  I know what you mean about the motivation. It sucks.. I struggle with that in winter time especially like sober says. I haven't been too bad with motivation at the moment. The house and I are doing pretty well..... Lonely though 😞 Wish you would all come and visit already 😊
