    Feeling stressed out tonight Feel like nothing is going right; uni, boyfriend, job, friends :/. Is anyone available so I can have a rant by PM? Or know how to spoiler something so I can post it here? Could be a bit triggery for some people, especially if you're sensitive about uni/academic issues like I am at the moment.
    Spoiler stuff by typing [SPOILER] your text [/SPOILER]
    Im around if you want to PM, but probably wont manage any long reply.

    Put [ S P O I L E R ] at the start of what you want to hide and [ / S P O I L E R ] at the end (without spaces), or click the : x smily at the top of the text box if you're using a PC.

    You can PM me if you want though I dunno if I can be of much help. :hugs:

    Thanks for the reply He's a psychologist and he started off trying CBT but I wasn't really making much head way with it so he thought a mindfulness approach might be more helpful. But he repeatedly says to me that he's not really an expert in it and so it's a learning experience for him, which tbh I don't find all that reassuring. I'm actually seeing him privately because my CMHT doesn't have a psychologists atm and the only therapy they're running is a STEPS program which I don't qualify for, so the up shot of that is that I can't be referred to anyone else so it's kinda this or nothing :s
    That's really interesting. Shame about having to pay. Personally I think CBT, while brilliant for some people, can be a total failure in a percentage of cases. Mindfulness is very Zen really and again, its probably something that clicks and appeals to someone as their way forward or not. It certainly isn't very re-assuring to be told he's still learning the technique! However to get to be a clinical psychologist is very tough and so I suppose he probably has the ability to try something out like this. It sounds as if he is a little nervous!!!

    I suppose you could look at psychotherapy instead. That has to be paid for of course and there are schools in that from Jungian to Freudian and every other kind of '-ian' A good psychotherapist would be worth their weight in gold but of course they do vary. They usually work in private practice rather than the NHS.

    It does depend on your symptoms and your personality needs. What works for one person might not work for another as I'm sure you know.

    Sometimes though it isn't one therapy but a culminative effect of the journey through them, taking what is useful from each one and learning about oneself as it goes on (even the ones that don't work as such can be useful in this case) and that can make a real difference in the end.

    I really hope the mindfulness techniques do start to make a difference or if not, you find another way forward. Perhaps you should tell him that his nervousness around this is a bit discouraging. He needs to have faith its going to be effective too.

    possibly physically cos not only have i been out today, but been looking after a 2 year old, but also mentally cos i have so much going round my brain i dont even know where to start just need to hide

    baths scar me, its often a place where i get bad thoughts, and out bath here is a bit dirty (step dads a machanic and uses the shower) and not very big, and we dont own hot water in this house, but its a great idea other than that 1 of our things for our last uni house was that it had a bath and we had one in halls aswell

    yeyyy, iv had 2 lots of chicken today :ninja: but not a roast, id like a roast chicken :yep: you dont well haha, i usually manage half a chicken :ninja:

    hope your well
    Ohh sorry bath is a bad idea then. Snuggle up in bed with a hot water bottle and book? It's awesome that you've done so much though that's an achievement in itself especially looking after a 2 year old! I know how challenging little kids can be, my oldest half brother is 2 and a half and youngest is 6 months
    mmmmm chicken haha
    I'm ok very up and down but nothing new! Seeing my psychiatrist again tomorrow - hopefully she can do something about the horrifically vivid dreams/nightmares I've been having since she put me on anti depressants again because my sleep is pretty much pointless as I wake up constantly and then wake up exhausted. Some of the dreams have been pretty disturbing too :/
    I read your post about SH. I will probably be on here all night so if you want someone to PM then I am here :hugs:

    Not really I think, didn't revise much at all as I couldn't concentrate.
    But you did SOME revision and you SAT the exam that is a lot better than doing zero revision and not sitting the exam, even though I know it doesn't feel like that but it's an achievement you managed those two things. I'm sorry to hear it didn't go as well as you'd hoped though :hugs:

    I feel like if I could overcome this I could overcome everything but if I can't overcome this I can't overcome anything. I don't think I can do it. It's too much. I can't talk to anyone about it and it's eating away at me. I want to hide from it, I try and try, but it always has a way to find me. I can't keep running but if I stand and face it I won't win

    Got a lot on my mind am...also im pretty sure i have a crush on this girl at our letting agent's office. We often go in there to pay rent, get stuff fixed at our house and she recently took us around a bunch of houses. I wanna try and get over it though since i have no self esteem whatsoever, and im certain it'll end badly and just make stuff awkward in the future. Theres a reason i havent been in a relationship for about 5 years.

    Also anxious about everything atm; leaving the house, answering phone calls, and a number of other things coming up in the next 2 months. I just downright hate myself at the moment and have no faith in myself about anything.

    I've often thought that im just supposed to be depressed for the rest of my life, and that i need to reach some kind of zombified state where i feel no emotions anymore so i can no longer be in so much agony, i wish i could do that but i dont think i can.

    I will worry :hugs: I can't relate to the flashbacks, but you seem to get them regularly which sucks:console: i really hope they stop soon, even if its only breifly to give you a break.

    I'm in a very bad place myself at the moment, tho i don't feel like sharing atm, which is very strange for me, since im normally very open.

    This is a hard one. Either apply for extenuating circumstances or withdraw but it will be a tough decision either way. From experience, I would recommend trying to find someone you can speak to about this (friend, auntie, GP/counsellor) to help you deal with the situation and talk it through. (When I did my most important school exams my dad had had cancer all that school year.)

    Hope that's of some help to you, hang in there
    thank you i don't really know who to talk to. i just want to sleep
