    Are they amateur if they've been to a doctor multiple times about it etc...?
    The doctor just infuriated me, refused me sleeping pills and to cap it off gave me a leaflet that said to do stuff like go for a walk before bed. Totally not taking me seriously at all. Anyway long story short I've been self medicating co-codamol to sleep. It barely works anymore but of course I can't up the dose because that's how you get addicted. I have other reasons for taking it such as anxiety and it still works for that though. Right now I'm kinda sleepy but not much, I could easily stay awake even if I did lie down.

    Oh don't get me wrong, the vast majority of doctors I've seen have been absolutely awful! Yeh, it really ****s me off when they say, "why not go for a run before bed" and stuff like that... as if I've not been told that before..

    Yeh, obviously if it's helping with your anxiety and it's at a manageable dose, then sure, but just be careful with it! I've had problems with codeine based medication before, and it's not nice!

    Yeh, the joys of 2am :/

    Finally someone who understands my choice of medication. Another doctor further pissed me off because when I told her she accused me of being a drug addict! This is after trying three of the doctors anti-depressants which messed me up in different ways. I tried co-codamol knowing it was an opiate and it worked wonders. Helped me sleep and helped my anxiety. As I said I'm careful to not take too much and not for too long but that ***** compared me to a junkie.

    I'm not even sure why I can't sleep now. I'm not depressed right now and I have a plan for the future.

    Well, I guess I understand it, but still wouldn't recommend it I do get why you take it though! Yeh, also always get the accusatory glances when asking about medication!!

    Mmm, sometimes just can't... Usually I just don't even bother trying for at least a while so that when I do try, I'm somewhat tired...

    It's good that you're not depressed right now and have a plan for the future :yy:

    I found out today why I'm malnourished, when you have tea it's supposed to be food, not a cup of tea...

    To be honest, I've never understood why people call it tea, rather than supper or dinner...

    I personally prefer the word tea... I guess just because I'm used too it though, but yeah, whoever started it needs a slap for being a confusing mofo...
