    Ffrenchie is obviously going through an incredibly difficult time right now - and while some posts may be well intentioned ... they are not actually helping.

    Arguing with her, and making her re-explain her circumstances several times is not constructive for her.

    Please think carefully about how she may receive/view your advice before you offer it.

    thanks

    and best wishes Ffrenchie

    Im sorry if u felt I was questioning u ffrenchie...I was just trying to get a clearer picture of your circumstances and was worried working so much would be detrimental at this time. Its hard to know exactly how things are for you.

    I admire ur strength and drive. Im sure u will succeed in getting well whilst maintaining ur new position at the pool. I understand now how important that job is to your mental health - its actually part of your recovery.

    Again im sorry if I upset u in anyway, its the last thing id want to do

    How are u feeling today? Xo

    That sucks. People with a good hubby and friends can need help too! Fingers crossed your counsellor is wrong and you would get accepted.

    Thanks Katie's mum and everyone. I feel so embarrassed, I seem to always come back to bubhub when I need help and support and it ends up as a debacle. I think that's why I've been accused of being narcisistic.

    I've just gotten home from class reading in dd1's class,
    It makes me so happy be able to help out and dd2 and ds3 love coming into the classroom as well. Dd1 just impresses me out everyday with her kindness and perseverance and intelligence. I so wish to be like her, she is an amazing child. Anyway, babbling now.

    I'm really low today. Had a terrible day with my ed yesterday, I look awful today, my eyes are dark and puffy, I feel
    Gross and fat. Not getting any pain relief from the tiny 60mg of endone/oxy I'm allowed but the gp won't increase it and said ill have to live with it. It's my fault for pushing my tolerance up too high but the pain is still real it adds to the depression living like this. And I still get interdose withdrawals.

    Had a bit of a manic episode this morning, I just woke up not wanting to face the world and just needed love from dh. He has been so
    Amazing, researching bulimia and my other issues for hours on end, emailing me stuff etc and just putting up with so much. I'm really grateful but I try to tell him that when I'm in a super dark place, quoting facts at me isn't going to help, I just need hugs and affirmation. I went a big psycho and pushed the couch and slammed the door (kids didnt see) I just felt so lost. He said he wants me to have something arranged by this afternoon.

    Sorry for rambling, just getting it all out. I simply cannot believe this is my life.

    It's ok. Thank you for taking the time to post to me.

    I've been doing my job for three years now so it isn't new, I just have the winter off when the pool is closed. The grade ones and twos who come to me for lessons were all excitedly talking about coming back to lessons this morning and asking me how many sleeps now. So cute and it gives me hope that I might actually be good at my job

    I worry about working so much too, but really it is the time spent at home when I struggle the most, especially with my ed.

    I haven't commented as I don't feel that I have anything constructive to add, I feel for you tho.

    I just wanted to say that it's perfectly understandable that you retreat here when things are hard. Many of us use the (somewhat) anonymity of an online forum to help us get through things we feel we can't or shouldn't burden in our friends we know face to face.

    I can see the rock and hard place that you are in and it's awful. Perhaps ringing some services to see what you can access.

    It's one of those times when the health system really fails those living rural and remote in Australia and its not fair.

    Big huge cyber hugs, I wish there was more that I could do.
