Just watch what you're doing, like I said it can be a dangerous combo...

Vodka might taste nice but it only makes things worse. I know this from many years of drinking. But as Rorschach says be careful of the combination with the pills - some times they can react together in a bad way. Next time you get to that point ring the Samaritans 08457 90 90 90 or come on line and just spill the whole lot in a blog. Even if no one is here someone will read it and answer you. It takes time sometimes but it always happens. :hug:

Hi scottishhappy,

Glad you are feeling a little better.

I would echo Dollit's comments,the samaritans are good listeners.

I have also been in the same place and would advise you speak to your GP about the situation,they should be able to point you in the right direction.
