Hi Murlo,

You're a kind, loving and compassionate woman. You bear testament to the fact addiction can infect good folk as well as bad people. Despite this you chose a career where dedication to helping others has obviously been your mission in life. I, as i'm sure many others do, see you as the kind & wonderful human being you are.

Best Wishes

AL

Dirty Stop-Ups. 

Oh my gosh, no wonder I slept in. We were all up till like 1am. Naughty boys and girls. I see what you mean now. If I see you up that late, I shall give you a heads up to climb that wooden hill. 

Have a good day. Might wanna put your big coat on if you go out. It's blowing a fair breeze. 

Drama x

😂 Apparently I was up until 2ish. That gave me far too much time to enjoy a drink or two. I was up at 7.

I did really enjoy the games and the playlist tho 😊

Dear Diary. Day 104 gamble free.

Oh dear, I am very tired today.

My hubby came over last night to be with me and my friend and he has booked a hotel near the hospital for the weekend so that I have somewhere to retreat to for a bit and to get some sleep. Last night he said I should try to relax, have a drink in the bar and watch the rugby while he spent some time with our friend. I did that but ended up drinking far more than I should have and staying up really late. What I should have done is tuck myself up in bed and fall asleep to the rugby. Anyhow, I probably felt more drunk than usual because I haven’t slept much at all for a couple of days. Hubby went home this morning to look after the moggies and will be back again tonight.

I got up at 7 which felt far too early and popped onto the ward. I got a right rollocking from my friend for getting drunk. She can tell me off like no-one else I know! She says she would be really happy if I was going out, having a good time and a drink but not because I want to drown my sorrows. She’s right as always. I did really enjoy playing Drama’s game and listening to lots of music though so I think I ended up not so much drowning my sorrows.

Anyway, my friend is staying in over the weekend. She would be ok to come home today but the team would like to make sure I have the right support available and they can’t do that until Monday. My friend agrees this is wise and is quite content to wait which is good. The staff here are amazing, I feel like I am being looked after just as much as my friend.

I am very tired now. I am not going to repeat last night. It doesn’t help to just try to block out what is on my mind. I just need to work it all through and can only do that with a clear head.

Time for a bath, trip to the see my friend and maybe another cheeky takeaway.

I have appointed Drama to be my moderator tonight and send me to bed if necessary 😊

Morning, it’s just a bit breezy outside 💨 

I did manage to get to sleep nice and early last night. I literally just crashed to be honest. I wanted to be with my friend because she became unwell but the doctor told me it would be better for me to get some rest and come back fresh in the morning. It seems as though my friend slept well too, we both look and feel better for it. The doctors seem to have got on top of the fits my friend has been having fingers crossed, she hasn’t has one since last night 🤞

Have a good day all x

Dear Diary. Day 105 gamble free.

I have found today really tough so far. My mood has been low, I haven’t been able to sort out my thoughts. I am glad that I have this opportunity to see how I respond and pull myself together while my friend is still in hospital. One of the nurses spotted that I was a bit unsettled this morning and offered to go for a walk with me. We had a good chat about what was on my mind. She was so easy to talk to. So calm, no reaction or judgement, just a good listen and bit of reflection.

I am lucky. I have people looking out for my mental well-being. I get the feeling I am being man marked today. Every time I go to leave the ward, a member of staff offers to accompany me. That is a really lovely thing to do.

Joining chat at lunchtime helped, spending a bit of time with such wonderful and inspirational people makes all of the difference. I am just a big bag of emotions today so glad to be able to chat through type rather than voice.

My hubby is on his way and I am looking forward to seeing him.
