    Thank you everyone. I was ok this morning then super depressed and anxious and nauseous this afternoon. Tonight I was allowed extra oxycodone so am feeling ok. The pain and the withdrawals are making the depression so much worse. Next time I have an episode dh is gojng to call an ambulance and go from there. I have so many moments when I literally feel like I am drowning and cannot go on. I can't explain it. Why does this affect me?

    This is the first time I have wished that we had phi. Never needed it before and I don't have the two months to wait. I want and need to be well ok my recovery journey by then. Few weeks until full time work starts agajn. In that time dd2 has an operation, MRI and ECG and I have my op.

    It's really unbelievable how difficult it is to get some help! Hang in there, glad you have a plan, but NOT glad you need to have a plan like that.

    It is hey. My GPS answer was to increase meds and to admit she didn't really know anything about it. I nearly left in tears as I want slmeone to be able to help me. I need inpatient as it is causing friction between dh and I and that is the last thing any of us want or need. And it's just so so hard to deal with tjjngs while worrying about affecting the kids

    And people ask why others don't "just get help"- its really not that simple, is it? At least you and DH have a plan if needful.

    Exactly Atropos. I am fortunate in that I have an extremely supportive husband and many, many friends and easy children. Hubby is a counsellor to so while he can't counsel me, he has an understanding of what I am going through and tools for both of us.

    I cannot imagine going through this with an unsupportive or no husband, kids with behavioural or other issues, less money, etc, it would be even more impossible

    I think a supportive understanding, educated partner is absolutely the most important weapon I have in staying well. That and knowing when to ask for help, and where to get it.
    Thinking of you :-)

    Ill send you the workbook tomorrow

    Thats great you've got a plan for next time. My dh called an ambulance for me once and while they didn't take me in (my choice) they were wonderful and helpful just checking me out and reassuring dh.
    we only got phi when I got unwell which was a god send but have used it since for ds and dd's surgeries which was great as well ( no waiting and got to choose the surgeon).

    If you do decide to get phi I'm with Australian Unity (smart combo). It's only mid level cover but has great psychiatric cover ( even better than some top covers).

    Take Care French... Xx

    I think that time pressure of the pool opening on a set date must make this even harder to deal with. Are there any staff that know your job so that if you aren't on top of things you won't have to worry as much?

    It does add pressure. It's not a job that I can't be on the ball for.

    I had a great guy lined up to work full time for me, he knows the job and I am
    Comfortable leaving him there alone but he told me last week he has been offered another job down the coast and isn't coming back

    I have employed three young people but none I can leave there alone. Hubby can do it but he has his own job and there aren't any other qualified lifeguards around this little town.

    Thanks ripper Rita for the phi recommendation.
