    I wish I could offer more than just cyber-hugs and a few words ... you are such an amazing person. You CAN get through this. It is hard, but you can.

    I wish I could make it easier for you

    My mum admitted herself. She found it like a holiday once she left

    She enjoyed her experience.

    She has substance problems, booze etc so i am trying to get her there again!!! I think mental health work better with you if you volunteer and aren't from hospital. Just personal experience. My friends brother has been admitted then let out two days later.

    If your there to sober up its about your control as they can't hold you under laws do you smoke etc? Your not allowed canned deodorant razors etc. (sorry I have only read first post) are you going by choice or hospital doing this. Best of luck and hope your okay xxxx

    I have no advice to add, but just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you. You have said a couple of times throughout this thread that you are embarrassed. Please don't be. Be proud!! you have nothing to be embarrassed about or ashamed of.

    Good luck, I hope you get the help you need, for you and for your family who you clearly care so much about.

    Ugh.
    I understand your concern about keeping your job etc.....

    but what is the point of having a job if you are so ill your life is falling apart.

    i know it's hard, but what is worth more? The town pool or you staying alive?

    Thanks ris yeah they are my everything.

    About my job, if it were hust an ordinary job in an office or one i can replace i would agree with you but I have to find a way to do both. I can't explain how important it is both the me and a whole community. The fall out would put so much extra pressure on me I would cope even less than I am now. Work is important to keep me out of the house and it is important for my children. I can't tell you how much it's important for them and why but just trust me.

    Also the financial pressure of being on one wage will kill me. I already panic about finance. I am much much better when I am working, it ensures I am around people 12 hours a days. I would be SO unlikely to get a job opportunity like this again, especially where we live, it's remote and there are no jobs, I am seriously blessed and believe I am supposed to be there. I have an amazing job that i can take my children to and the older ones get the chance to learn work skills and can swim before and after school. I just need to find a way to get help in the next few weeks and put ongoing support in place more than just my counsellor and my husband.

    Staying at home and not working would drive me further into the ground, I get swallowed up by house work.

    I say this with love Ffrenchie but you're making excuses. You say having no job will kill you but you're wrong.

    Bulimia WILL kill you. Drug addiction WILL kill you.

    You need help. You owe it to yourself, and your kids, to do whatever it takes to get that help.

    Omg, I explained nicely how important it is, i am not exactly in denial here, im quite aware of what i am dealing with. I am not making excuses AT ALL, please don't tell me I am. Please don't tell me I am wrong about my own circumstances! We are drowning in debt, I am depressed being at home. I love my job and my mental health is much, much, much better when I am working. My counsellor and my husband agree. Not working feeds my bulimia and my addictions and depression. It is a situation that if i pull out of this contract, i wont get the chance to work again for a very long time, you can come and see where i live if you dont believe me. Our debt keeps me up at night, we cannot afford to be down $70k a year. I WANT and am going to get help, that's why I started this thread and have put a few things into place. I am extremely frustrated now. What reason would I have to make excuses omg.

    I may be ill but I'm certainly not stupid.

    Cicer, great idea about payment plans, I will call a couple tomorrow. Just this morning I may have found a public place (pa hospital) that would be suitable. A friend of mine went there for similar reasons.

    I'm in a chemical handling course all day today.
