So much has happened since that last time I spoke to anyone.
My Fibromyalgia has caused me so much trouble. I ache all over all the time with burst of pain here and there. I've had trouble getting people to believe me as I look fine. 
My son wont help me unless I pay him so I have had to manage on my own... my moods as got lower and lower as the things I cant do have got longer. 
It came I a head last month when my 15 year old granddaughter ran away from him...
She turned up at her over nan.. I've felt left as to what is going on as I cant get to the other man all the time, my legs right give me problems,  I'm now using a mobility Walker. 
Anyhow, my GD has moved in with her other nan, I feel totally shut out.. my moods have dropped rock bottom to the point that I took an overdose last Wednesday. The following day I woke up to my cat telling me how cross she was with me. 
All weekend I suffered from the effects of the pills I took. On  plus note I hardly had any pain over the weekend so I got all my jobs done... today though I'm feeling it..
Thank you for reading this... netty

    HI @AlisonNetty
    I am so sorry to hear you have had such a tough time, did you seek medical help after taking the overdose? It sounds like you are very low. If you are having thoughts of suicide, it is important that you discuss them with someone who is qualified to help. Please call the Samaritans on 116 123 (free) or email them at [email protected]

    You might also benefit from reading MIND’s information on how you can help yourself 

    If you feel that you may be an immediate danger to yourself, please call 999 or go to your local hospital right away.

    Thank you for your advice. It was a moment of weakness. It wont happened again. My dr told me to step back and let others sort out my GD matters. He wasn't happy that I tried to kill myself... we talked fir a little while. Thank you once again. Netty

    You have a lot to deal with and speaking to someone who is trained to help can be a real support. You don't have to be suicidal to call the Samaritans, they are there to listen to anyone who is going through a difficult time.

    I've done that with my daughter and grand daughter netty, I always used to think that raki g action for a ptoblem was the right thing to do but I've learned that sometimes doing nothi g is better for us and for them
