    Just thought I’d bring this back - guess who took her codeine too early so fell asleep way to early and is now wide wake 😂
    Sometimes all you need is one person to believe in you , for you to begin to believe in yourself.

    heyyy am I allowed to bring this back up? I get scared to make my own threads these days keep deleting them lol

    anyway since a lot of people have messed up their sleeping patterns through lockdown it can feel lonely at night so thought this is good for a general chat or support 
    “And when they look at you, they won't see everything you've been through. They won't see the **** that turned to scars that began to fade with time. They won't see the heartbreaking things that shook up and changed your entire world. They won't know how many tears you cried or even what it was you were crying about. They won't see how strong you had to be because you had no other choice. What they will see though is how compassionate you are because you experienced pain. What they will see is how kind you are because you experienced how cruel the world is. What they will see is how good you are because you've seen how bad things or people can be.

    Ahh @Shaunie ! I keep telling myself that too haha. I've set an alarm for 6.30 tomorrow though. I really want to try and have a walk and see the sunrise. I've been feeling really unmotivated recently so I think that's a bit of self care n' all that :tongue:

    Comedies. Anything that Is easy watching that I don’t have to use my brain so much makes me feel clever lol.  I recommend watching back to life. That’s quite funny in it’s own way. 
    Atm I’m watching it’s kind of a funny story. Literally 2 mins in and it’s triggering Af already lol 
    he’s suicidal

    Oh yes I really need to sort my sleep out too :joy: I’m not doing too bad at the moment going to bed at about 1am and waking up at 9 ish, but any moment now (maybe tonight because I’m not remotely tired) I’m going to stay up really late again and then wake up late and that will be that lol.

    @Shaunie trouble is I have no real reason to keep that routine, so I always let it slip. I can keep a better routine for a couple of days then I just sleep all day again loll

    @Shaunie these are some that I found funny:

    - the let down 
    - drifters
    - dead to me
    - the IT crowd
    - fresh meat 
    - the job lot
    - insatiable
    - Derry girls
    - after life
    - can’t cope won’t cope
