Strange one isnt it, you very very seldom see a gambling addict whos up, but you seem to think you will be the one who defys all odds
100% - you always walk into a bookies thinking you'll win.

I've had very good days, and very bad days. I try not to touch it at all apart from an odd footy bet here or there.

Luckily, I've got a mortgage within the last 5 months so that's deterred me from it I think. I very almost didn't get my mortgage because of it!

I have a friend who has always been a very capable gambler (he's a very astute mathematician), however even he realised that in the end everyone loses.

So, he turned from being a gambler up in the North to moving down South, opening a bookmakers and was one of the first people to lay bets on Betfair.

He's minted now which tells you absolutely everything you need to know.

Another job interview tomorrow, this time for something that is 100% legit and sounds right up my street. I feel calm, not particularly nervous. That in itself is making me nervous to be honest, I can't shake this feeling off I'm too relaxed and therefore that can't be right.
You'll be fine I'm sure they'll kick in once your in the room! Remember a little bit of nerves will do you good!

Being relaxed is nothing to be ashamed or worried about and as you said, you don't feel particularly nervous so it's not like you're totally blasé. Best of luck to you!

Meeting HR, on Tuesday. I spoke with the RCN,(who can't attend). Warned me that my job is at risk. I don't think that I will lose it soon, but now on half pay and really worried. My PTSD is starting to ruin my life. Hope the therapist can help me help myself.

Your condition was caused by what happened in work, yet your job is at risk !!!!

Have you thought about seeking proper legal advice from a solicitor who specialises in employment law outside of the NHS ?

I know from one of my old jobs, that a lot of the reps didnt really push hard for their members, as they didnt want to rock the boat too much, due to the fact that they were on such a cushy number with their expenses, cars etc.

In my last job the main union man was more interested in seeing himself in the newspapers and getting out of his duties on 'union business' than helping his members. Only when he left in the first wave of redundancies did we get a rep that fought our corner. Unfortunately this was to late. If it is an incident caused by work the company are duty bound to put procedures in place to support an employee back to work. I imagine even the NHS have to follow these rules.

You`d think that the NHS would be at the forefront of supporting their staff, due to their workload and the fact that frontline staff get dogs abuse and assaulted on a regular basis.
