    Getting used to the aura that comes before a down or anxious phase, and I'm starting to get that down feeling. Any good ideas on how to keep spirits up/ prevent it getting worse?
    I really want to keep my mood under control so I can enjoy going to London this weekend :/

    Feel I may be slipping into another depressive episode.
    So I'll sleep to avoid that.
    Night all.

    Finally dared to e-mail my teacher about my choice to continue her class and asking if I could change an experiment for an important assignment. Got an e-mail back saying that it was such a pity that "the holidays have not (yet) given [me] the work and confidence to continue" with said class. At first I thought that she had misread my email and believed that I would discontinue with her class, but with the whole paragraph that followed, I believe she replied to the fact that I told her I had not yet started on my experiment. I have been trying really hard the past few weeks to do all the school work but honestly, my concentration in just really *****y. But I have been trying and I have been getting up early and I did try to work on everything pretty much everyday for the past three weeks and on a few days in the two weeks prior to that (but I was in France, so I wasn't even able to work all day, every day, though I did do some things) and all that I have been working on was related to the class taught by said teacher. Her reply makes me feel so crappy because I feel like even though I'm trying it's not enough and like I have done something terribly wrong and like I should just get over myself. But it also worries me that I don't really know what she means by the whole email (there are multiple things she said in the email that I am really confused by)... Damn, sorry, needed to get this of my chest.

    Try to do things you like to get your mind off things and not slip into the downwards spiral. Talk to people about what has been bothering you; is there any particular reason you are feeling sad? Meeting with good friends whom I feel comfortable with usually does some good to me, as I can get my mind off things by talking, appreciate the fact that I can be around those people and I can just have a fun time. Also allow yourself to feel whatever you feel at times and to take rests, but don't spend the days lying in bed. But I guess these are all quite basic things, sorry :/ Enjoy your weekend in London!

    I'm really struggling at the moment with everything.

    BS brain ramblings about microchips.
    Spoiler:

    So, i was out of the country as some of you may or may not recall and obviously that means metal detectors. Went through fine every single time, though my parents got pulled over 3 times haha. Does that really mean that the microchip doesn't exist? I'm not sure anymore. What if they're ****ing with me too. **** it, I have no idea what's going on anymore. I was 100% certain before, despite everyone else telling me otherwise. Now I don't understand what's happening? i wish I knew.
    ED ****

    Finding it really difficult to eat daily (or even drink), and also doing stupid **** like purging liquids, because obviously I'm a genius. :facepalm: Then I wonder why I pass out and keep having heart palpitations. Well done, me. 10/10 for you - have a gold star. So ****ing smart. I don't know how to stop this and I'm frustrated, don't see the point in getting help though either. I'm probably not ****ed up enough for them to deserve help. Having said that, they did basically say I was too ill for them to help me with regards to the PTSD...haha, maybe I'm just doomed to this existence until my body gives out. I'm so tired of this ****.

    Finding being back home really difficult, isolating myself a lot from friends/they're also not replying when I reach out to them (??). Not sleeping very well, and I'm having flashbacks daily. Dissociation is really bad and my mum keeps getting mad at me because I "never listen" (because I'm too dissociated, sorry).

    What the **** should I do? I have no idea. :dontknow:

    The council randomly showed up to install the intercom for the buzzer door system in my flat and as glad I am we are finally get a buzzer downstairs, I'm a nervous wreck that they showed up at my door unannounced and I was just planning to go out to my mum's since I'm very anxious today and could do with a hug from her and now I have to wait until the council are done and I can't leave Callan in the flat and go out alone because of my panics so I just feel trapped

    Thanks for this it's a bit harder because the friends I'm most comfortable with were at uni, but you're definitely right about talking to people. I've been spending too much time in the house lately, so I've made a lot of plans for the next few days
