    Is there another doctor you can go see in the meantime? I completely understand why you're worried about this, but there'll be a solution. :hugs:
    they won't let me see another doctor because of my autism and i don't like new people they said they'd rather me see the same doctor so they already know the information or background on me as i'm quite a complex person, they will not let me see another doctor. *hides*

    Yeah :o
    I'll see what GP says, I think I'd only go on any if I was told to/recommended.

    Oo I was thinking of the ones at bristol zoo, yes! :) When we were younger we used to walk past the zoo from nursery/reception, and apparently we had a year pass and went in each day for a bit :$ That'd be awesome though :D

    )

    eek[/s] Sundae's always look so awesome!
    Ah yeah We went on a walk round a (small ) bit of windermere Didn't see Keswick! Apparently it's really nice though
    oo we saw a tour boat thing when we went
    Yeah, inwent on meds due to being suggested to by my dr :yep:

    Wow im SO jealous, i love zoos. The one by my mums does entry by donation over winter, so its really cheap i love it.
    These ones are MASSIVE because they dont buy the icecream in, so for like £5 you get 3 massive scoops of whatever flavour you want(its more like 2 scoops of each flavour!!), so i tend to go for 3 different flavours, then i tend to get chocolate sauce, flake and cream i think. Its amazing!

    Yeah windermere is MASSIVE though remember that it isnt a lake :yep: the town is just very touristy! Keswick is really quaint, but nice
    Yeah they do loads of different boats and stuff, its amazing, were going on the island tour, cos theres loads of islands in windermere! Atleast 1 has a house on it! Its mad.

    That really isn't right - they want you to see the same person, but that person's refusing you treatment?! Maybe try looking into getting yourself a mental health advocate who can fight for treatment on your behalf, because you really shouldn't be going through this ****! :console:

    I'm going out now, but if you reply later I can tell you a bit more about getting and having an advocate if you're interested - I researched into it for my partner a couple of years ago.

    Awesome, which college is it - Telford, or one of the unis? Good luck for that interview! :hugs:



    :console: I'd definitely talk about it with them - fortune favours the brave! :horse:



    I know how it is - my first doctor was horrible. But the majority of my (many) GPs have been lovely, and have totally made up for her being an *insert expletive* from hell. Remember this is something you have to do for you, and you don't need anyone else's approval, so go see another GP and prove the old one was just as **** as we think they were!



    I can understand if she didn't want to start prescribing you new medication, but to not even want to see you to keep an eye on you is disgraceful!

    In that case, have some more! :jumphug: :jumphug: :jumphug: You seem totally lovely, and I think it's great that you're starting to take charge of your life like this - keep on like that and you'll go far!

    Edinburgh College, Milton Campus. I'm trying for an HND, which can eventually lead to a degree, so hopefully it'd be good for me. Thanks

    Been doing a very last minute application for college this year. And yes, it's in Edinburgh where my boyfriend lives. The course I've chosen sounds pretty good though, and leads to jobs I'd be interested in so hopefully it'd be good for me. Have an interview for it this week, so hopefully all goes well and I'll be there studying next week, fingers crossed . Kinda nervous and excited about the thought of returning to education. Will hopefully stay in halls and get that social life I've been dreaming of . I've been starting to have more of an idea of what I'd like to do career-wise, although still nervous that I may fail, but I guess all I can do is hope and try. And I won't let depression get me down this time :yep:
    Very proud of you for taking this big step hun :yep:

    i have a question...do you think it would be reasonable for the university to provide me with sensory breaks if i get overwhelmed or over anxious? I wouldn't use it as a excuse to get out the class / lecture but i need sensory breaks due to adhd and asd otherwise i struggle a lot
    Do you mean for exams? Not sure what your uni's policy is but at Oxford you can get rest breaks if a doctor insists upon it and you have a good reason for it. Has to be approved by 'the powers that be' and all, but generally straightforward :yes:

    So finally get home to find my mother has taken the opportunity to completely reorganise my room. Not even the retwnce of tidying it or similar. I can't find anything and suddenly have a pyjama drawer where I used to keep documents... She also, ever so helpfully, placed all the items she disapproves of in the middle of my bed. I'm going to be a mature sensible adult and ignore the complete invasion of my privacy. Four weeks til I go back to uni, if I ever doubt that I am better away from home I think it will be this moment that reassures me.

    Hey guys!

    I've struggled with mental health issues for a few years and am now going into Year 13.
    Should I mention them on my UCAS (ie in the disability box)?
    It has made things a lot harder especially around exam time but it doesn't show because I got 10 A*s at GCSE and 5 As this year. Wanting to apply to Cambridge, Bath, UCL, Edinburgh and Manchester.
    Is it worth mentioning anywhere? I'd ask my tutor to put it in the reference, but only one teacher knows and I'd rather the rest didn't.
    I would 100% recommend ticking the box if you have evidence (which you've said you have). Especially because you are applying to Cambridge and it's not wise to try a Cambridge degree without the proper help in place. It will make your life much easier if you declare it :yes:

    I could really do with some help if someone is willing to read this.

    I go to University on the 13th of September and am incredibly nervous about it. I was diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia in 2011 and was suffering from it for about 2 years before it was diagnosed. In that period of time I have literally lost all my friends and basically live the life of a recluse. I had a job for a year last year but ended up relapsing three times due to the stress, but during one of my better periods I thought I could handle university and so applied and got 3 unconditional offers. Now though I feel very apprehensive about the whole thing and I'm not sure how I will cope.

    I've come to the conclusion that I probably won't make that many (if any) friends while I'm in halls and I'm OK with that but I'm still really nervous about the whole thing. The course I'm doing is something I've wanted to do for years but never felt like I had the chance. Now I don't want to relapse again because of the pressure so I'm concerned about what I'm going to do. Has anyone got any advice for me at all?
    Hi! I see you've already had some good advice and got DSA in place - that's great! If this course is something you're passionate about - and it sounds like you are?! - then do give it a go.

    Also what Panda said about how few people come to uni with any friendships established there is very true! :yep:

    i do not think i want to bother anymore about seeing mental health professionals, they just cause anxiety and stress which is not helpful and they don't seem to care anymore...my social worker is not answering her phone, but, i need to talk to someone

    Edinburgh is meant to be an amazing place to live! Glad you've got some voluteering lined up! My annual volunteering starts up again in a few weeks - nervous but equally excited

    Thanks very much
