    Hi guys! Wondering if anyone could give me some help/reassurance.
    I've been going to counseling through the NHS for anxiety, but I hate it so much because I really dislike the guy its with; we have the eact same conversations each hour because hes forgotten what we spoke about last time and he just prints me off random selfhelp sheets from the internet. I also just don't think that counseling in general will help me. I was wondering how I go about quitting because the last thing I want is to phone up and the person tries to persuade me to stay, I also hate phone calls in general! What do I say?
    When I wanted to leave the counselor I was seeing I called up a few days after and canceled my next appointment. When the receptionist asked if I wanted another one I said "let me call you back when I know when I free. Thanks! ".

    I also hate phonecalls and confrontation.

    Tornado warning has passed, apparently there was one not that far from here but were safe. No damage that I have seen yet but haven't left the hotel room yet.

    Hurricane hermine is currently passing threw so more damage could come. Most of central flordia is under a state of a emergency at the moment.

    Will try to keep you all updated, thanks for the love :hugs:

    Really shaken up. A security guard walked into my house, no warning or anything, and intended to stay the night. He didn't realise I had moved in, and I found him in the kitchen :/ no longer feeling safe here. I know he won't come back, but the fact he just let himself in is really unnerving

    Could you put like a chair under the handle so the door can't be opened from the outside?

    I feel so awful. Voices are really loud but mumbling and I'm only understanding a few words. They're definitely loud and distracting enough to stop me doing any work. I have an important test on wednesday which I'm dreading, I can't focus at all on the textbook. I just want to lie in bed and cry. I'm gonna fail this ****ing class a third time if I don't do some work. :cry2:

    That's a really good idea actually- thanks! sorry to hear things are worse for you at the moment. Do you think that taking a break could help at all?

    Hope it works for you.

    I've been having breaks - been watching episodes of Malcolm in the Middle on netflix and even finding that hard to follow right now. Then going back to the book and crying again. I cannot handle stress.

    Ya know that way when you don't feel right physically and you can't quite put your finger on what's wrong or what hurts? That's how I feel tonight. Feel like I've came down with something or whatever. HA is through the roof because of it

    I really feel for you This would set me off so much and I can only imagine you feel right now :hugs: putting a chair up against the door is a great idea. I know how unnerving it is to not feel safe in your own home/residence. Hope you manage to get a good night's sleep tonight and that this is just an once off you can out behind you soon :hugs:

    Why do I bother to dream? I wanted to be in the army (hemophilia stopped that), wanted to get really good at ice hockey (neither of my parents was willing to drive me to practice), wanted to be a police officer (stopped by my mental health), so I decided go to to nursing school. This time I thought I had it - 4 years and I'd be a qualified nurse able to make a difference to people, but no - I'm going to fail anatomy again because I can't ****ing focus. All these words and spellings and concepts and memorization are just impossible. I feel so stressed, I keep crying, and don't know what I should do.

    :hugs: to me this all points to you not getting the right kind of support/guidance and struggling with some very difficult problems. You are clearly not stupid that is definitely not what it is! What support have you received since you started your nursing degree/studies?

    I know you've probably tried this, but is there a different way you could revise which is less stressful/ more fun? Sometimes things like flashcards or pictures can be easier if you're finding it tough to focus... and anatomy is ideal for that.
    Hope you're feeling a bit better now

    Thank you putting a chair by the door did really help, and I locked myself in my bedroom for the night. Once I managed to get some sleep, I felt a lot better
    I've complained to the company about the security guard- it's out of order for anyone to walk in to a persons house without even knocking!
