Hi mad world.

I find that sleeping pills have no effect for me when high. During my last high i had to take pills called zopiclone ( a hypnotic ) and lorazapam to knock me out, they certainly helped - i was out like a light for 16 hours. I would not recomend taking these meds together, i only did as i was desperate for some sleep.

my wiring is a bit wonky

nope, me neither, sleeping pills help sometimes but if my mind does not want to sleep it wont...zopiclone good though and less addictive than temazepam i ..no sleep is not fun...had a bad week and awake all night two nights ago after a good day strangely and then a very bad morning and a good friend talked me out of it all and calmed me down...the finding yourself in a different country must be so scarry...what can you do..always have a bif of an emergency kit with you?...mobile phone..money..credit card...maybe a tracker ...sounds a bit dramatic but so a friend can see your whereabouts on the net and then make contact with you so that you are safe.
How are you now? Poor you and yes we are all on here cos the wiring is a bit wrong but it is helpful to know others suffer in similar and not similar ways, take care and rest up if you can

thanks all and ellamental .well some times round about my local state iv had the police bring me back home and carm me down instead of taken me to the sole called nut house for a week or two its good job father new them as for the cards,pass port have bin taken from me even at 41 some what sad at my age but this seams to make it more interesting to me to run,and at times have bin naked in the street around my way not nice for me and every one eles but at late thank god its not bin that bad.the phycs say it's was the abuse from when i was young that makes me run.this is worrying me again as thy keep bringing this matter up at late.and at times i think iv bin given a gift from god to say i can see the big picture.things happen that iv already seen and all that. just wish i could relate to people on the same wave length.:confused::grouphug:

we all have strange thoughts and experiences

Hi Madworld
it sounds like a hard and confusing world that you are in just now and as Lozzi says..riding it out might be the only way but make sure someone knows where you are so you stay safe wont you. This might sound a bit patronising but would running...as in running with trainers and a running partner...rather than running away...be some help..perhaps thats a silly suggestion. Are you on other meds for the bipolar as weel as sleeping tabs? Does the week in the local bin of loons help or make no difference..a freind of mine said he slept like a log while he was in there. I cant imagine sleeping anywhere unless I feel totally comfortable and secure and my head is calm and thats hardly ever. I know you said you didnt like talking about what happened when you were abused but maybe talking to one counsellor or writing it in diary might help or maybe not...what do I know...my stuff is still in boxes waiting to be opened with counselling and psychotherapy soon! You take good care and don't worry about relating too much...you are doing fine here..better out than in :grouphug:

hi ellamental that said

ride it out ends up me in bother well it did do at the British embassy trying to get home etc with no pass port and money at time i look back at that stage as funny but not at the time,but as for the local nut house i say that as it was not run rite at all ,people's being left in the own vomit,Fess's etc and not being attend to.not humane at all .also when am in i get some one in tho the door to bring in nicker,socks,pants,fags etc to sell to the other inmates. security was early bribed with a packet of fags etc.so i end up running the place so to speak.as the people that work there just care about the people its just a job to them....running i cart do all that much as i did my ligament in my nee,yet i hav a good exercise bike that help out and my own gym.as for hear there is know group like mind etc in this area,just aa or drugs this needs to be addressed as well with the local mp or the rite people.i just i do worry at times about the boxes as you said the abuse that i cry.and try and keep away.....um anyhow time for my nite zopiclones,then i will take my lithium and fluox in the morning not nice at all sorry about my selling as its not my forte :grouphug::cool:
