Hello folks 👋

I’m new to this forum, joined a couple days ago. Feeling really lonely, Friday’s are tough for me. Hoping to find some company here if anyone is around.

Have been awake for maybe 2 hours, after a 5 hour nap, and mood is rapidly plummeting. Friday’s are so hard to get through. On my own. Son is with his mother tonight. Being alone with nothing but time to think makes it hard.

Feeling really down

I find being alone very hard too, and mornings and nights are the worst. I’m always looking for someone to talk to atm. When will your son be back? Is there anything you can’t do when he’s with you that you could do now? Pamper yourself maybe? I don’t know your situation I’m just imagining you have a little one. 🌸

Hey lonelycat, yeah he’s only 4. Thanks for responding, appreciate it. These days I don’t have a lot of motivation to do much of anything. Will just have a few drinks and smoke a bong. That’s about all I’ve got on the cards for tonight. What are you up to?

That’s ok, maybe try and see it as an opportunity to chill then, you must be knackered. I havnt slept since Tuesday so im just laying in bed browsing and trying to find others to talk to or try and help. How long is he gone for? Im sure he’s your world but he’ll be back in a flash. Why are you called hairy banana lol

Haha it was just the first thing that came in to mind. Making a username required too much brain power. I didn’t really think twice about it then someone on here said it was a bit porn’y haha whoops. Wasn’t intended.

How come you aren’t sleeping? I have trouble with it too, especially recently. Having nights where I can’t sleep but not for such long periods like yourself. The only time I went that long without sleep was in the early parenting days. Went I think 4 nights without sleep, shit got weird man. Hallucinating and shit. Wasn’t good. Are you coping ok with the not sleeping thing? Would be rough

Yeah he’s back tomorrow night, it’s just being alone and having time to think that’s an issue. Just fucks me up a bit

I get you, he must be your world, like being apart feels a bit lost. I left my fiancé of 14 years and am back with parents and I’m totally lost without him. Can’t sleep without cuddles. Sounds pathetic but I don’t know anything else. I have no desire to eat anything or do anything. Only thing that kinda helps is talking to people on here. Trying to express myself and help others if I can at all. Lol hairybanana I like it, made me laugh. Maybe it should be mandatory that we all have silly names to make us smile. I miss my dog too 😖 fiancé is trying to convince me I’m paranoid and I am so mentally unwell that everything’s all in my head and I don’t trust my own judgment anymore. I had a breakdown but I feel even worse here, sounds weird but I feel like I need to escape my own body.what will you do this morning then? 🌤

Ooph that’s a bit harsh of your fiancé saying all that shit. I mean who says that? That’s just… don’t if you should be questioning your judgement, but theirs.

Yeah forum friends help a lot hey? Got banned from my old forum that I’d been on for a year, definitely feeling it. Miss them all heaps. I hope this place can help both of us pull through.

I can’t say I relate to the missing cuddles part of it. I tend to be a crazy sleeper, screaming out and kicking things and what not. I tend to wake up dripping in sweat so now that there’s no one on the other side of the bed, I can just roll over instead of trying to sleep in an ocean of sweat. I like it.

How are you finding things being back at parents? Hope they’re a good support for you

Hi @hairybanana I am here if you need someone to connect with. Although I'm not much help ATM as not very well physically and mentally.

I woke up this morning feeling like my head was in a vice and the muscles in my body are in agony. Ear ache too.

I have been waiting for a call from my GP after he put the fear of GOD in me telling me to stay off work. He then said he would call me Wednesday and get me in to do my Obs.

It's now Friday and I still haven't heard so my friend suggested I call the practice. I did and following 68 redials and a queue of 8 I managed to speak to the receptionist and burst out crying.

I am now waiting for another GP to get back to me. I said to her I totally GET the NHS is a shambles ATM as I am victim to it (that's another story). But common courtesy costs nothing.

5 months wait for an echocardiogram makes me feel like I will be dead before it comes through. Sometimes I think this wouldn't be so bad, but then like you, I have children and grandchildren who need their mum / nanna well.

Sorry for ranting on your thread but I just want you to know I'm here and your not in this alone. Although I'm sure you know that already as it's priceless this forum 🙏:hug1:

Sounds like a very rough time for you Talula, sorry to hear it. Can take a long time to get anywhere when you need medical attention can’t it? It’s very wrong. I hope you get some answers soon

I’m struggling massively here. Had a crap childhood to be fair. They’re nice people and mean well but theyve always struggled financially and Ive always felt like a burden to them. it’s depressing watching them loose teeth and the place is falling apart, they love each other and that’s all that matters to them. i wanr to help them and would if I could but I have to help myself at some point.

yes I had a nervous breakdown and exploded, ran into a car. I genuinely don’t know now if was being gaslighted or I had paranoid delusions. Maybe I do, maybe I did hear things wrong. I hope so, I’d rather be unwell than my reality being the things they say about me.

sorry you were banned, could you stay in touch with any of them?

sounds like you have trouble sleeping too, can you take anything for it? Yeah I guess I’m too needy.

hope you have a peaceful day 🌸

Can't help anyone until you've helped yourself cat. And it's not up to you to help them, they're capable of making choices and decisions. Help out sure, but don't make it your responsibility. They are responsible to each other.

Either way, whether it was reality or not, still should be addressed. Kind of a big move to make hey? Reckon it deserves attention. Gotta take care of yourself cat.

Yeah cheers, I made a sneaky move yesterday and managed to reach out to them and let them know where I am so that's been good.

Yeah I don't sleep well, I get trauma related nightmares and shit which makes it difficult. And I dunno, have had some nights of late where I'm too wired to switch off. Just stress I guess
