    it's that time again kids new thread

    may the posting begin!

    ------------------

    Please note that our current policy is that any discussion of suicide or self-harm is not permitted, whether that's writing about contemplating it, or discussing methods. We also cannot allow code words to get around the suicide/self-harm discussion ban. It is important to note that this includes anything written in spoiler tags. The reasons for this policy are:
    We are not professionally trained to deal with serious, potentially dangerous issues like this. We feel that directing people to appropriate help is safer than posting on TSR about it.
    Often messages about these types of feelings end up getting replies which are at best well-intentioned but unhelpful and at worst downright malicious. We would never want someone to be made to feel worse for posting about their feelings.
    There is a real risk of both triggering other users and increasing dangerous behaviour by allowing discussion of self-harm methods etc.
    We do not want TSR to be seen to be a site which encourages or promotes self-harm.

    In reply to bytail, the reason I'm an idiot is I went cold turkey on my citalopram without consulting my GP. Now I feel awful.

    Ah, been there, done that If you feel bad mood-wise then I guess they must have been working, right? If you feel physically unwell then just take a dose and you should feel better. I felt like **** when I went cold turkey the first time, but this time I've been fine.

    New thread! :crazy:

    Back from holiday - had a really good time, but simultaneously still had some pretty worrying thoughts, even when around my sister. Getting a bit concerned about the way things are going, debating what I should say to my GP next week - could try and push for an appointment with the psychiatrist I was actually meant to be seeing, but then again I don't know that there's all that much they could do...

    Got a whole ton of posts to wade through in the old thread, but thought I'd say hi before making the attempt. :hi:

    How about setting yourself targets, like doing one chapter a week, or whatever seems doable. Might make it seem more manageable.

    Yeah, I will try that, thanks :yy:. I read some bits earlier this morning, and it was OK. I just need to make sure I have a proper go at it in order to really benefit.

    Nice to hear you enjoyed your holiday . Good luck with the GP :hugs:

    Hi everyone. Nice new thread. Hope everyone's doing ok.

    I had another appointment with my GP on Thursday and she directed me to this resource on low self esteem:

    http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Resource/...80/0023944.pdf

    The website has many more resources that look useful too:

    http://www.scotland.gov.uk/Publicati...03/22091556/31

    She can't do much more for me because I'm not home for long enough

    Just been in a bad mood for the last few days, same today. Mood gets better as the afternoon goes on, but then gets worse in the evening again. Very much lacking motivation for almost everything.

    Is there anything that doesn't require much effort but still takes your mind off your mood? I dunno....drinking or playing a computer game or something maybe? Once you get started it might be easier to continue although I understand it can sometimes be very difficult to get started. :console: I've been watching cartoons online a lot recently - takes my mind off things and doesn't require much concentration to follow the plot, perhaps try that?
