DD15 nearly 16 has been very difficult( think drugs, police, violence etc) she has been so good the last few months though.

However, in order to keep the peace I have found myself tiptoeing around her. Thinking twice about what I say , being careful not to even bloody sigh as it can set her off into a screaming fit. I'm sitting here tonight thinking ' what the bloody hell am I doing ?' I'm fed up of walking on egg shells just to keep her happy. She asked me if I thought silver hair would suit her. My reply was 'Weeeeell I'm not sure if it would' cue shouting and screaming that I don't care and I think her hair is shit.

I can't carry on like this. I want to leave home( yes seriously ) and see how she gets on without me.

I'm really glad you're back with us, Doin. smile

You will probably feel quite rough. Zopiclone is powerful stuff and you took too much of it. Please don't take any more.

You will prob get some withdrawal symptoms, which could be quite bad because you took so much, but shouldn't last long (a couple of days) unless you have been taking it for a while.

Here's what the NHS Choices website says can be the withdrawal symptoms:
"These include headaches, musclepain, extreme anxiety, tension, restlessness, confusion, irritability, rebound insomnia, tremor, sweating, agitation, palpitations, faster heart rate, delirium, nightmares, panic attacks, muscle cramps and gastrointestinal problems. If withdrawal is severe the following may occur: derealisation, depersonalisation, numbness and tingling of the extremities, hypersensitivity to light, noise and physical contact, hallucinations or seizures".

Like I said in my PM, I do think you need to get yourself checked out. Can you get a taxi to A&E? Tell them everything, if you can face it. I mean everything that has been going on with DD, as well as all the medication you've taken.

If you can't face A&E, here are some other places you could try...
Your GP (except you said they were useless... sad )
NHS Direct
The Samaritans
Family Lives (formerly Parentline) - 0808 800 2222
A local women's centre, if you have one.

I. Glad you are still here, Doin. I was worried about you. I still am. Please seek some help.

McFox Sun 02-Feb-14 14:16:45

Glad to hear you're back with us, please take some of the advice and speak to one of the agencies highlighted below. You need help just now, as we all would, and that's what they are there for. Please look after yourself.

I can't be arsed to call anyone I feel like shiny

flow4 Sun 02-Feb-14 18:45:18

Please do, Doin. None of us here can help you in real life, however much we'd like to - and I really do think you need a bit of real life support now.

Ah crap, Doin, I missed how bad things were for you over the last couple of days.

How are you today? How are you feeling?
I hope you have somebody to support you in RL - MN is not the place when you are really low.

Thinking of you thanks

Doin, you really do have to call someone. You must honey! You can't cope on your own and you need help but you have to SHOUT for it. Really make a tremendous effort to make yourself heard, even if just to a rl friend. Infact, particularly a rl friend or relative. What about the boyfriend's mum, do you feel able to talk with her at all?

Doin i echo everyone else. Please get some RL help.

flow4 Mon 03-Feb-14 22:54:50

Doin has PMed me to say she's in hospital.

CouthyMow Tue 04-Feb-14 00:17:55

Doin, if and when you read this, I'm glad you are getting some help. thanks

WynkenBlynkenandNod Tue 04-Feb-14 07:28:11

Thank you for letting us know Flow. Doin flowers

Maryz Tue 04-Feb-14 19:16:42

Thanks for letting us know, Flow.

I didn't want to post again here because I didn't want Doin to feel we were all getting at her.

Doin, I'm so glad you are finally getting some help. You have coped with life chucking things at you in a way that none of us should have to. It isn't surprising you have finally cracked up.

I hope they are being nice to you, and that you can gather your strength. flowers and I'm thinking of you.

Ah, flow, thanks for letting us know.

Doin, I am glad you are in a safe place. Please be v kind to yourself and let yourself be looked after.

flow4 Fri 07-Feb-14 14:55:42

Just a quick update to let you know I've heard from Doin again, and she's feeling a bit better.

WynkenBlynkenandNod Fri 07-Feb-14 15:52:39

Really pleased to hear that Flow, thank you for letting us know. I've been thinking of her, as I'm sure everyone on here has been.

CouthyMow Sat 08-Feb-14 00:29:55

I'm glad. Pass on that my thoughts are with her. thanks

flow4 Sun 09-Feb-14 12:07:35

Doin says thank you for all your good wishes. She's home now. smile

Maryz Sun 09-Feb-14 12:10:32

Doin, if you are reading this, I do hope you are ok.

I would kick her out the house if I were you, if she continues treating you like crap anyway. Just because she's your daughter doesn't mean she should get away with this sort of abuse..
