    No, what is it?
    Zopiclone is a non-benzo sedative, or "Z-drug", prescribed for insomnia. It's probably a better bet than the benzos as it's specifically for sleeping, not just used off-label — the benzos were designed with the idea of the user being able to function at the time, so they're deliberately not that sedative.

    One thing is that I've always had to sneakily take my father's spare zopiclone, as they're very stingy about prescribing it to minors.

    Oh right, I might ask about that. I've only tried benzos! I'm 18 so not a minor, but they were still weird about giving me diazepam

    Lunch time :/ I have no idea how to feel about it tbh.. But I'm guessing its good if I don't have the voices in my head telling me not to eat it or purge right? I think that's good

    That's definitely good. I wish they'd get out of mine, too! I don't hear a voice per se, but I have such strong intrusive thoughts that they're sometimes almost audible.

    I feel the same, i get such strong thoughts that i can't get rid of, and eventually it feels as if someone is shouting them at me.

    I also have a habit of giving my thoughts visuals, even if i don't want to. Stuff like me being in agony and being torn apart by shadows, or being posessed. I know that's probably really weird...but they are thoughts that go around in my head constantly.

    Thanks guys

    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Had a pretty awesome day today :yep: Parents came to pick me up at 9, then went into town for a bit cause I needed to get a few things. I got a wee dongle thingy, so now I have proper internet at the hospital and can now use my laptop, instead of using my phone :woo:! Then went down to the beach (I have a thing for beaches I looooove them!) and had lunch there... I ate a bit of the lunch, and my parents were saying how proud there were of me for eating... It's been so long since I've seen them this happy before, and I hate breaking their hearts I really do :/. It was nice though I loved it! No arguing, or fighting just peace. Then went down to the beach and I just sat there staring out into the sea.. it was so calming and peaceful one of the reasons why I love going there. I just sat and thought about stuff.

    And now I'm back home for a few hours... finally I can use my laptop! Absolutely shattered though, kept getting so dizzy and breathless.. but hey ho I enjoyed today It's been a while since I've enjoyed a day out with my parents like this!

    Hope everyone else is alright! :hugs:
    Sounds really fun But it started raining here not long after.

    Finally got my referral to CMHT today.. Really scared but really hopeful that this will help. Can anyone explain to me what the original assessment is like? Could do with some reassurance.. Trying to avoid panicking!

    I missed today's chance to get out of the hospital, and am feeling awfully claustrophobic. I'm consoling myself with the vastness of the Internet.

    Ah okay. That would be nice to get some leave on Sunday. I was always banned from going on the Walking Group when I was hospital (they didn't trust me not to do a runner :emo: ). Have they given you daily Sec 17 leave?

    No such luck, I'm afraid. Just one short supervised walk, and, depending on which nurses are on duty, sometimes I'm judged too much of a risk for that. ;;

    Bleh so just went all melty melt flashback on bedroom floor. Bright side is it wasn't too long or intense (most likely due to having diazepam in system from taking about 2 hours before) so that's good I guess. Still icky and urgh.

    Thanks for getting me to bedroom. Would have been far less pleasant to go all dissolve on pavement.

    Had two supervisions today but both of them went pretty well. Now only academic thing left is revision before exams start in a week and a day (scary). Gonna do a bit of work tonight, but then have a couple of glasses of wine and relax I think. Has been a tough day and I think I need to give myself a break before the next week kicks in.
