    Do I have to keep calling out the regulars on this thread? I'm in quite a mentally distressing situation and very few people have anything to say and when they do it can be because I bring attention to how little support a mental health support society offers to those who need at least some comfort. This thread is basically support between "the regulars", the accepted members of MHSS. But when I've been trying to break in and when I ask for help it proves hard.

    Chances are my university course will be terminated and I'll be kicked out of university. I have a ****ty home life I don't want to go back to for the sake of my mental health. I have sleep problems, I have social problems, probably aspergers. I have next to no real friends I can rely on. Especially around me. I've received very little to no help from the NHS to help me with these problems that have made life so difficult for me. I don't really fit into British society on the whole and don't know what I would be able to do if my university course is terminated. The idea of getting a job in retail frankly fills me with dread. I need mental stimulation, at least. Probably more. Like people on my wavelength. My life is at bit of crossroads and I'm terrified of what the future holds. I want to be happy, I want a network of people who care for me, love me, want to be around me and vice versa. I want to prove to myself what I'm capable of and find my place in this world, even if that's in a different country. I don't want to do a job just for the money, I want to do a job that I can look forward to.

    If you really want to know, personally I don't often answer your posts because you write long paragraphs which I find hard to focus throughout. :dontknow: I also find repeatedly being told we should be paying more attention to you a bit of a turn off.

    Its a support group. I need support. What's the point of a support group if you're only going to offer it to the regulars? Don't you think I'm going to be upset and annoyed when my cries for help go unanswered?

    I've told you why I personally don't answer your posts very often. I can't say I've noticed you offer me much advice when I've posted either. I restrain myself from getting too upset about this fact.

    I've answered other people. And sometimes I don't know what I can do to help. Don't know the situation well enough, think there's nothing I can add that others haven't already said.

    Posting long paragraphs shouldn't really discourage a response.

    I also struggle to read long paragraphs and also try and give some support where I think I might actually be of some use, which I don't think I can be I don't always read all the posts on here either, often just replying to anyone who've quoted me, and I've been either busy or struggling a fair bit recently which means I'm a lot less likely to be of any use to anyone Either way it's not you specifically I've been ignoring, sorry!

    Sounds reasonable - why can't other people reserve the right to not know what to say to you either?

    With your last point I completely disagree though. I have difficulty reading long paragraphs because of my mental health issues (big impact on concentration). Many other people suffer from similar issues, some to a much greater extent than me. With all due respect to your chosen writing style, why should it be us doing all the work to pander to your distaste for paragraph breaks?

    A little brevity can work wonders. :fyi:

    I don't reply because I am terrible at giving advice that isn't stick your head in the sand and ignore it or run away, neither are helpful. I also sometimes feel anxious about replying to people I don't know.
    For what it's worth: if your course terminates can you change course within your university? Can you do the course at a different university? Maybe get a part time job for this year so you don't have to move back home and you can work out what to do next. No one knows what exactly is going to happen in the future, and that can be scary.

    im really really upset this is not ok. thinking over about ACT I've been doing cause the last session is on Monday. I haven't seen any improvement whatsoever and I tried really hard. its so disheartening. I cannot go on like this and I have a plan. im not really sure why im doing this. its so pointless. there is no hope. I don't see how it can get better. I wont just wake up and be ok. but nothing seems to work. I have countless numbers of people who are all 'stuck'. im fed up of people feeling 'stuck' and then abandoning me. I am so upset and alone.

    I very much agree with wolfie, if i see a large paragraph i will generally ignore it because i struggle reading, and cant concentrate enough. Yes i could read it but id only be able to reply to the last sentence as id genuinly have forgotten what iv read...

    Also i struggle to give advise if i cant relate to much, or if i disagree with some of the stuff being said. Or if i dont have time or are doing bad myself.

    This IS a support society, if it wasnt for this society i wouldnt be where i am right now! I wouldnt have my boyfriend, i wouldnt have had the courage to go to the drs or resit 3rd year. So YES IT IS A SUPPORT SOCIETY!!!
