    Before contacting "Lifeline" and after when I was trying to sleep I was tormented with subconscious thoughts and feelings of rage and grief. In truth I wish my consious would just check out or go into a coma. I kinda mentioned fears of going mad to lifeline and the thought of suicide was pretty much the only thought in my head during the night. I estimate that it was 5 hours of madness whilist going to sleep then 5 hours of sleep.

    Anyhow I've looked online to find articles on madness and discovered thats its quite a rare topic.

    The best i could find on youtube - Mad King of Britain: King George III

    Any ideas on a midnight quick-fix?

    All good ladys...Just experamenting with the buttons on the forums. It's also comforting that this site has troll control. ole facebook is big but I left that platform for (my) good in 2015. The dream of that working became the reality of their ads working.
