Hi! You probably haven't heard from me because I usually post on Social. But I wander over here from time to time too.

I know what you mean about telling yourself something over and over, but not believing it until someone else says it. I do that all the time. Maybe we have to be at least one step removed in order to see a situation clearly.

I was thinking about what you said about having the sleeping pills 'just in case'. I'm by no means an expert in phscholgy (I can't even spell it right), but to me that makes a weird kind of sense. It probably calms some of the anxiety to know they're there. Kind of like if you keep a candy bar in the freezer when you're trying to loose weight. You know its there, so the craving doesn't seem as bad. But since its frozen, you would have to wait a bit before you could eat it which gives you time to think (I know that's a bad analogy, but the only one I could think of). I was wondering if you might could do that with your pills. Like maybe put them in a safety deposit box or bury them in the backyard or something. That way you know they're there, but you have to put out a little more effort to get them, which would give you time to think and maybe keep you from acting on impulsively.

Anyway, I just wanted to through that out there. I hope you're having a good day.
