It's been a while

Posted on November 22, 2010 at 7:11am 5 Comments

hi everyone,

I'm feeling very proud of myself right now, I've logged in for the first time in months!! I have had a rough time of late, not that I'm justifying anything, just want to share, if that's ok...

I tried to commit suicide a couple of weeks ago, I even tried to inject my 16 year old Down Syndrome daughter, adamant not to "leave her behind". Please dont judge me, I know it was a silly, desperate attempt at trying to get away from the…

Therapy...?

ok, so my day hasnt been great but it's also not as bad as it was yesterday. I had a strangely therapeutic argument with someone I dont even know and it made me feel quite liberated.

My DP (diabetic policeman) went overseas for a couple of weeks and I used that to let my hair down and tried to… Continue

Sunshine after the Rain

Posted on November 22, 2009 at 11:13pm 6 Comments

hi all,



I admit, I have been avoiding the site. I've been so down and I couldnt bring myself to "share" with all of you AGAIN. I imagine you getting irritated with me (I think I would, to be honest) and I dont want to lose any friends so it's better you think I'm doing FINE. That, by the way is the "F" word in my house. Anyway, today I actually do feel a bit better, I'm not as tired as i have been and after a whole week of solid rain, we have sunshine today. That always… Continue
