I'm sorry but I feel bereft after losing so many of the former posters. I don't need leaflets. I need human contact.I'm a physical and mental wreck right now. I tremble, feel sick, have to use the toilet far too often, cry every day--sob my heart out would be a more accurate description. I am light headed, have high BP and frequent migraines. There is no joy in any part of my life, only misery.I guarantee I am already aware of everything any leaflet would tell me but I need another kind of help. My condition is fast becoming unbearable.

I relate with what you have said. I have been falling apart over the last 2 years and it has gotten unbearable. I just joined this group this morning and the first post I saw asked what you are grateful for. I am sharing this with you because That small thing of sitting by myself for a second and to think about what I am grateful for did something for me. I am going to start my day with the gratitude list. It was hard to think of a few things but clean water was one of mine. It helped my mood so far. I just wanted to share that with you it’s not much but I know it helped me.

I try and focus externally and internally remind myself I’ve done this before and it will be alright. It lowers my anxiety for me but doesn’t entirely take it away. I’m trying to build my confidence back up too by facing my fear and it is becoming easier, although not yet as good as I would like it but every small step is a victory. Praise yourself for those small victories.

Hi this will be a 9 day wonder so don't let it get to you. Like Pam says we have all done this before. When you return to work my advice is to make light of it and if you can make it into a bit of a joke. You could say something like 'Well that's the last time I will have Shreddies for breakfast' or something similar. This will put others at ease and release any tension.

I rarely do this either but did a few months ago in my dart team. Had a bad day, then someone annoyed me followed by a couple more and I suddenly blew. I stood up and yelled in the pub 'Well if you don't ****** want me in the team I will ****** leave so you can all **** off! :) x
