    Yeah she is, and yeah she's being different, but not so much BAD different...yet anyway
    I guess now would be a bad time to tell her about your flashing escapades?

    What am I going to do in the future:
    What do I want to do? I want to go to university.
    How much are you revising for your AS exams? Not really.
    Do you think you'll get in with this attitude? No.
    So what do you need to do? Start revising loads and concentrate on doing really well.

    Yet I can't find the motivation :cry: . I know these exams are important, but I still don't want to do any work :sad:

    honestly, last year i stopped thinking about university or my career. i still concentrated on those As, but i was more focussed on getting them so that this year (A2 year) was easier for me. sometimes i find that if i focus too much on the bigger picture, and less on just what i need to do to get to the next stage, it all becomes overwhelming :hugs:

    It was meant to be a joke. Seemingly I fail at that too.

    Eh, sorry didn't mean to make you upset. I'll just go and be depressive elsewhere.

    The mirtazapine? Don't worry, the tiredness does wear off after a little while, it's just getting to that point that's annoying. :console:

    I can't understand why wanting to die is considered to be wrong. I don't mean to insult anybody when I say this but I can't see the point in anyone's life, not just my own. We're born, do stuff that is pointless in the grand scheme of things and then die. People we meet along the way are going to die too so being close to them will hurt us in the end and that grief far outweighs the good times in my opinion.

    I feel really alive but there's this heaviness in my chest that won't go away. They both cancel each other out leaving me with an indifferent numb feeling. I don't know if this is a side effect of fluoxetine or it's desired effect or neither.

    Yeah I think that may be easier. I really need to think of the shame if I failed.

    This time last year, from the days leading up to study leave until after my prom, I was having the time of my life. I was having a lot of fun in school, I did well on my work (even if at times I left things to the last minute ), and, most importantly, I didn't really worry about not having a social life. I did well in my GCSE's. Then in September when I started Sixth Form, I started feeling very down because I didn't have a social life, and leading to as-of-yet undiagnosed depression in November after I became friends.with a popular girl the previous month. My parents did seek help. Meanwhile, in December it led to suicidal feelings, resulting in me running away from home in the evening on New Years Day to go to A&E. I hadn't told my parents and my phone's battery died, so they couldn't contact me and called the police who eventually found me..Then I started feeling quite good for about a month, but all this returned and slowly got worse, now to the point of not being able to cope at all again. Meanwhile, once regularly missed lessions in school, getting into trouble on various occasions. So I really am stuck

    Can also get less sedating/more stimulating as the dose increases, never did hugely for me but does for some people. I'm just one of the unlucky people that found the sedation never really wore off, just got very marginally more manageable

    I was actually thinking something along these lines too today. Not that I ever feel suicidal or anything, but after all this stressing about what to do with my life, trying to get a job, trying to do all this education, stressing about all this stuff when why does it really matter in the grand scheme of things? In 100 years time we'll all be gone and then that's that :dontknow:
