    I'm alright, I'm kind of bored which for me is often a slippery slope into feeling **** but I'm just going to read my book and maybe watch a film.

    Also still haven't told my parents about my depression. I don't know how. I can hide it, I'm hiding it fine at the moment but that won't be able to last that long. I probably should tell them but everytime an opportunity has come up I've bottled it.
    :hugs: yeah, distractions are good!

    fair enough, can be hard to tell people I know, hopefully the right time for you will come though

    Hopefully I'll work out how to do it. I know I should, it's just quite hard.

    that's okay, isn't ever easy to tell people, especially if they care about you, but hopefully they will be supportive so is worth doing

    I couldn't tell my parents so what I did was hand my mum a letter from my psychiatrist to GP which explained everything. Then I just sat back and waiting for the inevitable questions. But sure as hell beat telling her myself.

    Yeah, I might wait until after my counselling appointment when maybe my head will be clearer about what's actually happening to me.

    Just feel like I deserve to be put in my place. Hating being alive right now, in a dark and twisty place contemplating evil things. :crazy:

    I've tried this a few times. It's kind of worked until I sober up then I feel worse. Also my problem is that often getting drunk just exacerbates whatever mood I'm in at the time so I'd feel very very wary about getting drunk when feeling particularly low.
    True, you're right. But, personally, in my circumstances where I've come close to 's', getting very drunk seems to have effected a subtle change. Of course, it may well be just a case of it masking and covering up serious issues but as long as it'll keep me from the edge until the academic year finishes, then I'll have to continue.

    Okay dear ima just reply as Helenia is currently offline. In these circumstances a mod (usually a supermod or admin) would say something like:

    Would you consider speaking to the Samaritans or Nightline? Their details can be found here: http://www.samaritans.org/ and here: http://nightline.ac.uk/nightlines. They both offer a range of different listening services so if you don't feel able to speak to them on the phone, you can email them and they will usually respond within a few hours, or Nightline even offer a 1:1 instant messaging listening service.

    They are the people best equipped to help you in terms of listening to you and helping you feel supported and able to cope with the stress you're under, so please get in touch with them hun. On the other hand, if you PM either Helenia or fleur de lis (http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/member.php?u=54773) they are able to have the Samaritans call you with your permission if you feel unable to call them. Good luck, hope you're okay and that it works out for you. :hugs:

    Just to note though that the moderators who make these referrals are specifically Samaritans trained moderators. It can't be any moderator/supermod/admin, they must have been trained to deal with those posts/threads, and it's not always a supermod or admin, it is often area moderators who are trained as well.

    :yep: That's what I meant, though I can see why that might not have been clear

    Cool I only specifically said that because you said the mods (which implies all) and said usually supermods/admin but area mods do provided they are trained. :yep:
