Hello Mixed up Mym,

Wouldn’t that be great if we could spend time together and support each other. A nice thought. Thank you for your replies. I did stay in bed a bit later this morning to try and catch up on sleep. I still can’t decide on whether to take antidepressants or not. I might see how I go. I took citalopram. After about 2/3 weeks the side effects are not bad, though I think I put on weight which I’ve only just started to lose which is a shame. They did make me feel tired, even though I slept much better with them. That was the worst one really. But the benefits were worth it I thought. Less anxiety. I’ll see.
That was the second time I’ve spoken to Samaritans, first was a few weeks ago. Before that I’ve emailed them, and years ago while still married, wrote. The first time I just cried for a lot of it. It was a man and he was very understanding. Yesterday was a man too. I decided I would ring before my girl came home and it got to just after tea time and I felt ok but decided to ring anyway to talk about all my worries sorry money and job etc. Again the man was very understanding, and relaxed and actually made me laugh. I did cry as well, but it was so nice to laugh! I wish I could speak to him every day! I felt so much better
Re.my ex I have to be feeling strong to make any change to things and I’m just not right now. When I am I will get him to drop her away from the house.
I’ve read on your other posts about your row with your son (sorry I didn’t reply, you are much better at that than me!!). I’m sure it had to be said and good for you for being strong about it. Rows are never nice though, but as you say, like me with my daughter, it’s worse when you’re tired.
I also saw its your birthday soon. All best wishes for that. Will you do something with your daughter if you can’t face contacting friends?
I hope you’re planning a bit of something nice for yourself.
Bye for now
