    Hello,

    I was just wondering if I could join this thread to make some new friends and just to generally talk. I was bullied through secondary school which sprung up panic attacks and social anxiety after I left but I'm trying to get better. It would just be really nice to talk to someone sometimes as I always feel like bothering my friends when I bring up the situation (though a lot don't know the true extent to the problem). I had a bad spring up of memories today which is why I decided to post on this thread, I hope you don't mind.

    It's lovely to meet you all

    Thank you for the warm welcome! I just haven't had a great week. I was doing well socially and emotionally for the past few weeks but I have to pick myself up again. It's just been a long recovery from the incidents from my old school so would like a place just to talk about stuff.

    My friend has invited me around to another friend's house tomorrow, I don't like doing this but I am trying to get a gym session in, as every day I aim to I don't get the time or lose motivation (last time I got there and didn't have my trainers ffs). If I don't keep on top of it my mood gets worse and atm I feel like I have laboured breathing, tired a lot and I'm not getting to bed at a sensible time, 5.30 am last night. I already have obsessive thoughts that my mum doesn't want me to go to the gym and wants me to put on weight which led to ED behaviours. I also have things to do around the house. But I feel like I have to please friends as the only way they are judging my recovery is coming out to every social, and they will see me as weak/lazy etc. if I do not go. What do I do?

    This would be HUGE step for me...small deal for others, but massive for me as this is/was one thing that is like a no-go zone for me
    Well I'm proud of you for considering it and thinking about giving it a go :yep:

    Hi maew! Nice to meet you, though sorry to read about what brings you here I'm Shan, the yodelling goatherd :musicus: You are very welcome in MHSS!

    Thank you. I am trying - although, I am still concerned about how my exam on Wednesday went...My disability adviser said that I will be able to apply for extenuating circumstances, just wish I didn't have to (feel bad about that too). But I have been really struggling lately. And having panic attacks/flashbacks the night before and panic attacks during the exam did not help at all.
    Yeah, I hope so, just not sure what the clinical psychologist would be able to do? Feel really stupid because I feel like I'm beyond help.
    I can't imagine how awful having panic attacks in the exam must be I don't think you're beyond help :nah: It's just no one has tried to help you properly yet! A clinical psychologist could engage with you in trauma therapy and/or cognitive behavioural therapy and/or that eye movement therapy thing (I forget the acronym ), depending on what's deemed appropriate :yes:

    Well done! Hope it settles a bit soon (preferably in a good way) :hugs:

    I should know by now that the more I let myself be hyper, the worse I am afterwards. Yet I still never seem to pay any attention and regret it later. Need to actually do stuff tomorrow and right now I'm struggling to even stand up. Sorry, I'll stop whining, it's my own fault

    Thanks :hugs:

    Definitely not your fault, hope you're ok :hugs:

    My girlfriend is too emotionally dependant on me and it puts so much pressure on me. I can't live up to the image of perfection she has of me. When she says "i love you", i hear "i need you" instead.

    Question: Has anyone experienced more frequent urination (particularly at night) when on antidepressants? I I've tried looking it up but not found anything. I've been on the antidepressants for over a month and this has began to happen within the last two/three weeks, and that's the only major change I can think of.


    Sending hugs to all that need it. The last week has been pretty good for me up until yesterday, but family arguments are sending me back on the downward spiral.

    Oh no. I'm so sorry to hear that TLG. Could you call your psychiatrist and see if maybe they can make a medication adjustment or something? :hugs:

    As silly as it sounds, are you drinking more at night?
