I'm sorry I have been away for so long. I suffered a breakdown and have been in hospital for the last 11 weeks. I am being open and honest with you all as to why I have not been here because I feel that what I have experienced over the last 3 months will help me to help others.
Els has done a great job keeping the forum going and thanks for all supporting her as its not an easy job. I will pop in as much as I can and try to catch up with everything and everyone.
Ive missed you all and its good to be back. Im taking one day at a time at the moment. It has not been easy but Ive had good support from my boyfriend and family. The breakdown has been a long time coming....I have never let myself face the past and what I went through when I was growing up. It got to the point where I couldnt control it anymore and I couldnt cope.
Im doing a lot better now but it does take time. Im giving up nursing and changing to a less stressful job and my boyfriend is joining the police force so he will be the career minded one out of the two of us now. I need to reduce the stress in my life and those of you that know me know that my job took up a lot of my time and stressed me out as I never left work at work and always brought it home with me.
I'm only 23 so I have enough time to do something else. A fresh start is what I need I think!
Hope to hear from you all soon
Take care and keep smiling.....its good to be back
