Sometimes images are worth more ... and effective ... than mere words ?
This ought to be somewhere prominent for everyone to see!

What I refer to as Clapped out Carer Syndrome.
Agreed , BB.

A little difficult as we do not own " Our " board ... only the landlord can do that.

Come to think of it , we don't rent it either.
All but #8, I suppress everything without drink etc, which upon further thought I actually find more disturbing because we're not talking about a couple years.
I don't drink alcohol regularly, but do rely on coffee at times to keep going when my body tells me to give up and go to sleep!
I don't touch coffee, energy drinks, not had soft drinks for 20 odd years (since my teens)
I take tea but am actually becoming pretty responsible in my dotage and just have a half sugar in it
Drink plenty of clear fluids (water, very weak juice) mainly because I feel like it does well to keep IBS flare ups at bay.

Struggle to sleep though, big time, for days at a time even.
Though I'm told this was a thing when I was very small as well, with the not sleeping, it stuck with me.

You feel tired as hell though, almost dead inside even.
Bit like when you over stretch a rubber band, it doesn't snap, yet doesn't retract back to where it should
