OK, so I 'left' on Monday. I was having a very bad few days (still not quite better yet) and feeling very sensitive, up and down and generally not myself.
The penny only dropped this morning. I've been taking and am now coming off, codeine and valium, because of my ruptured disc. The good news is I am almost pain-free now, except for late in the day and when I do some of the exercises I've been prescribed, but the bad news is the side-effects. As I've been in a haze of pain, followed by a medicated haze, I didn't click that the overly-happy, overly-miserable, extremely sensitive thing I was going through was due to the codeine and valium cocktail I was on. Stupid in hindsight, but there you are, we're none of us perfect.
So, I'm sorry for being an idiot (insert insult of choice). I don't normally go in for dramatic exits like that.
Please, can I come back if I play nicely again? A quick viewing a little while ago gives me the feeling that the forum is a better place to be again and I would like to continue taking part.
Sorry once again.
