    just had to take another zopiclone because I have a super busy day later on today (Friday) and I need my sleep.

    I need to tell my nurse and therapist this later on today. Stupid insomnia is back.

    Ugh. Couldn't sleep and ended up going casino and blowing another couple of hundred quid. Just got in and now I have to get in the shower and go to work after a frantic night of gambling and no sleep for the second time this week.

    I have my money paid into someone else's account to help save me from myself and I already had to go to them once this week and tell them I blew it and needed more cash and now I will have to do it again tomorrow because they are going away and I need to pay for travel.

    It is horrible in the casino too. At 4am on a weekday morning, it is only really the full-on addicts and we are generally an unpleasant bunch when in action. So disgusted with myself yet again. Getting out of control. When I feel like this, self destructive and compulsive behaviour is all I can focus on.

    Totally get the unmotivating thing about a battle scar degree...it is not you walk around with a medal. (Though probably no one is happy he had to fight that hard, even if it is admired. Everyone would have prefered not to.)

    And you are never to old to learn new skills! Most people who think they are to old regret it later... I have no idea how it works with apprenticeships and things like that in the US, but it is worth to have a look. Maybe there is something for you?
    You're right. I don't put my mental health on my CV or cover letters either so I assume that employers look at that grade and throw it right in the trash.

    I'd have to convince my wife. Right now she doesn't see any of this a problem, but I guess it's not her that will be working the crappy clerical job - which is all I can see in the future at the moment.


    What's this project you're having trouble with? Could you go see your personal tutor and talk it over with him/her? Happy to hear you're doing fine otherwise though

    I feel you with the whole self destructive behaviours, i also have my own that i tend to focus on in the night time when thoughts are swamping me.

    Any more thoughts on ways you can deal with the gambling thing? Good luck at work today, im sure you'll get through it even if its a bit rough :hugs:

    I put up a photo of myself wearing the lipstick and I'm getting likes for it on Facebook. It's making me feel a little bit better.

    Sorry to hear that, I can honestly sympathise since my relatives are the same. It's unfair but at least your mum is supportive and understands. Hopefully after a frank discussion your nan will understand more? Perhaps you could try and talk/explain to her?
    You're right at least my mums supporting me and trying to make her understand . I think I'll leave that to my mum, don't need to be trying to persuade my gran of my problems.

    How're you? Did you manage to make your appointment?

    Before my granny knew I was ill, she got onto my daddy for me not eating. And now she knows, she keeps trying to interfere. I'm sorry she doesn't understand.
    Yeah it is difficult when you need support and help (I don't have ED problems but it's the same with all MH issues) and some people just can't understand that you don't need a kick up the butt but instead patience and care. Hope you're having a okay morning

    I'm sorry to hear that :hugs: sometimes sadly one thing leads to another when it comes to MH difficulties. I know I've found myself spiralling through all sorts not really knowing whether I'm coming or going and the doctors feeling the same 🙈.

    I know the feeling. I always had internal, different voices from my own and now 2 of them have materialised to be external voices as well. And the doctors have no idea too. It might be a psychotic thing.
