Well this is all useful info for your solicitor should it get to that . Make sure that he knows about it. Also try to note down if you can how you were feeling at that time and what your plans were for the extra cash.

It would be a hard judge who stayed stoney faced against an argument of " My client thought he was dying and has since been diagnosed with Addisons. His sole intention was to get enough money together to pay for his funeral and other final bills. He deeply regrets his actions blah blah blah"

 

If you genuinely had a fear it might be x or y or that someone in your family had died from say cancer, again it will go to your state of mind.

Any opinion I give is from personal experience .

I don't know your situation, total amount of overpayment etc. But do remember being in the same state of mind, the publicity bit was what concerned me the most. I remember being at work (when I wasn't off in a state of panic) & working on auto pilot, whilst thinking of ways I could end it all with my kids still being able to get the life insurance. No idea if my policy doesn't cover that, I assumed at the time it didn't.

I'd had the IUC (which I was given Diazapam for) & my amount wasn't quite 2000 even, but I was convinced I was going to jail & it would end up in the news etc.

I wasn't prosecuted in the end, took a loan & paid them back. And afterwards it felt like waking up from a nightmare. It will end. Even though it doesn't feel like it at the moment.

Now I look back to (I think it was) 3 years ago & thank my lucky stars I didn't end up doing something silly. And think of all the things I would have missed that have happened since.

But it really was the closest time I nearly came to it. It's torture at the moment for you. Hope you can stay strong & come out the other side.

Yes we have thyroid cancer run in our family, some had thyroidectomies and others died. I actually had a series of tests done on my thyroid (scans, biopsies ect) at around that time.

Thank goodness you got through it all ok *hugs*

I don't have children and and if I am honest I really don't have much to live for. I must also confess that spending a long time unwell I ....well lets just say I know exactly how to end it all very peacefully and quickly. I think that knowledge might actually give me the courage to keep going as the saying goes 'a prison becomes a home when you have the key'. I shall just take it one day at a time I guess.

No this was my emotional thread and a bit embarrassing so I started a new one to enquire about more factual matters I need to approach pragmatically.

Thanks
