I have joined this forum because sometimes I need to chat, rant, cry whatever and reading the posts so far everyone knows what I mean or feels the same!
I care for my wife, 8 years ago she was diagnosed with severe Restless Leg Syndrome and more recently fibromyalgia, not long ago she was checked in for an Iron Transfusion which was supposed to help the RLS but half way through she started fitting and they had to stop, she took this very hard and attempted suicide by walking into the sea at 6am one morning, luckily the cold water snapped her out of it but a few weeks later, brought on by a lack of sleep she swallowed a load of tablets, luckily I got to her and called an ambulance and she pulled through.
I have my own business and staff so I don’t always need to be on site but when I am I worry what might be happening when I’m not there, although, she has assured me nothing like that will ever happen again.
We had tears not so long back when I let her know that finding her after she had taken the pills still haunts me, it’s not something I ever seem to get out of my head.
Now with the Fibro she can sleep for nearly 3 days at a time, she can go to sleep, wake up for 30/40 mins and go back to sleep for hours and is mainly awake through the night while I am asleep then is out for the count again when I wake up, when it’s like this I feel very alone and helpless.
So in a nutshell that’s me and my story, I’ll probably just lurk and read what everyone else writes but from time to time might have to just offload onto here, hope thats ok
