Some places have jigsaw libraries, or charity shops can be great for cheap jigsaws.

Ive becomes me a little bit addicted to them this year....I just find them a good escape and quite therapeutic.

You are a likable person. I know it is hard to see that.

Thanks xx xx

Relationships are so hard! But I guess that blaming myself and calling myself flawed and unlovable isnít going to help them be any less hard. It wonít come naturally but I know I need to give myself a break and try to see some positive things about me.

I really want to go back to the gym. I spoke to a girl I work with about gym stuff (she goes regularly) and she gave me some pointers. She suggested just doing say 10 mins on the cross trainer and 10 mins on the bike, or treadmill, or rower to begin with and build things up slowly. Joining is on my list of things Iíd like to do, Iím hoping to have started going by next week.

I am going to my friends for a coffee at the weekend. She lives by the gym so I could maybe do both things on the same day. Iím not seeing her tomorrow now as she has to do family stuff, but Iíve said Iíll pop over maybe Sunday.

Iíve started chatting to a man on an app. Iím not going to rush into meeting him or anything. Iím just letting myself give people a chance and get my confidence back that maybe I am a likeable person.

Little steps, small goals, Ďsafeí risks....

4head doesnít have ibuprofen in it, or any other painkillers. Itís menthol based. A touch of vicks vaporub could have a similar effect, but 4head doesnít smell quite as strong and goes on easier. I find the white tiger balm helps too, that one is also menthol based.

I think my massages were approx £40 a session, which admittedly is pricey, but it only took a couple of sessions to feel a real difference. My massage therapist was really good, in that she didnít make me go more often than needed to make herself more money. I didnít feel ripped off by her at all. I went back for a one off session a few months later as I had a niggle, and just that one massage was enough to stop it getting bad again.

All I want to do is sleep or drink alcohol. I also found that eating helps me. I am trying escape life. I took some zopiclone last night and even though it took a while to get to sleep I didn't wake up as often so slept better. I had a nap this afternoon and fell asleep for a couple of hours. I will probably struggle sleeping tonight and I am at work tomorrow. Life just seems so pointless. If I could sleep all day I would. I don't know how to change it. I spend more time alone now. I did olmanage a couple of 300 piece jigsaws. But I only own 2. I am thinking of buying more to keep me occupied and distracted. But I have to be careful with money. I feel like I am waiting for nothing. Just drifting through without really living. I wish I connected better with people.

Thank you  :hug1: :hug2:.

I think I'd struggle with a massage because I don't like people touching me much but if it works I might try to push myself. Is it expensive?

I've always thought things like Epsom salts were more mostly a placebo but if they're cheap it won't hurt to try them.

I'll check out 4head but I'll have to make sure there's no ibuprofen in it.

Thank you. :)

I've felt like dream life is better too (and often downright bizzare!) so I get where you're coming from. I know it feels crappy. I'm glad that you're not researching suicide now :hug1:

I think you are brave to admit it all. I struggle with relationships and I freak out if people get close to me. It's a lonely world isn't it.
