    on the verge of treating myself to some very pricey boots that i can't really afford. they're classic black dr martens and i found them at a really good deal (£64 instead of £100), and i have thrown away loads of my shoes recently, so i don't have any flat boots to wear in the winter, which i kinda need to have because i go to uni in scottyland. but they're so expensive and I've already treated myself to a new laptop and other bits and bobs this summer and I'm worried that this sudden impulse to buy these boots is related to BPD? like, i didn't wake up wanting these boots but now its all i can think about. they are pricey but they're such good quality and they will last me ages...

    Urgh, that doesn't sound fun! At least then it's done though and you don't have to worry about trying to finish it off late tonight/early tomorrow, I'm sure once you've handed it over it'll be a massive relief!

    Ah, have they been helping with stuff? Other than sleepiness Yeah but if you're tired then you're tired, difficult to get stuff done at the best of times let alone when sleepy Though I'm never sure myself when I'm being lazy or it's MH stuff or what :dontknow: Considering I'm really not that bad MH-wise on the grand scale it's probably more lazy

    Well - pokemon fire red, just sort of to have as a keep-sake I used to have the 2 of them, and sapphire (among others) but I was a stupid small child and decided to sell them in to Game or some place Luckily have recovered/rebought most of the games I used to own, though still regretting my silly stupid mistake *glares at younger self "WHY?!"*
    Also Pokemon White/Black, because it's really high time I played one of them Haven't touched gen 5 yet. (Also need to finish their sequels and then I can have a need to get the 3DS to play X/Y and Saph/Ruby remakes )
    I dunno, it's hard to tell if the meds are helping, which I guess means they're probably not doing anything Got up at 1pm today I think it's pretty hard to tell whether you're lazy or it's MH stuff, can't really think of how you'd separate the two. :confused:

    Ah yeah, I did the same thing. At the time I needed money to buy new games/consoles but it sucks that I probably got hardly anything for them and it would have been nice to still have them. I even had an atari with the "worst game ever made" (ET). When/if I get kids I'm gonna let them "trade-in" games with me then when they're older they can buy them all back.

    Fire-red is pretty good, my favorite is the gold remake Heart-Gold. White/black wasn't great imo, I got bored of it pretty fast. I'm currently playing Y and it's pretty good but not the best I don't think - I'm not sure I'd get a 3DS just for X/Y it seems a bit of a waste.

    I saw your other post; try not to beat yourself up too much about not doing anything over the summer. It's nice just to have a break I think, you need to relax at least a little after a tiring year at uni. You could always try to do something at christmas?

    Had a nice few days with family, i just need to keep on top of my job seeking stuff. I wish i knew why looking for work makes me so anxious, i even get scared to check my emails or answer my phone when i am half expecting to be contacted. Also terrified about when i go in and what they will say to me :hide: A lot of the people that hang around the jobcentre make me feel so down, i'm sure you can understand why :|

    I'm planning to ask about a mentor and who the hell i see to get any support, if its even available. As scared as i am of it all, it's something i need to force myself to do, I've been jobless for too long and i have an overdraft i'm gonna be unable to pay off in time as it is.

    And hey, if i have a panic attack on the job i have a good reason to moan at DWP. This is assuming i find a job at all...

    Thanks PD. It really wasn't. My self pity was over 9000. It was also a struggle to keep the jealousy at a 0 and to be nice and supportive to my friends.

    Oh no. That is a shame.

    Thanks. I'm not really proud. If it's any consolation, I'll never be happy with my grades. Last year I cried because I got a B in Chemistry. If I got all A*s, I'd be crying I didn't get 100s. Though of course...I had due cause this year .

    Nah, not clearing. I need to take my gap years for my gran's sake.
    Oh yeah I can imagine, similar sort of thing for Jan results this year. Well done for getting through it then

    I think you're allowed to be upset about results if they're not what you were hoping/expecting Sounds positive with B in Chem last year though in that hopefully can manage a similarish level with retakes maybe? Though I imagine it's tough!

    Fair enough - I'm not sure what/how to say but that's really kind/selfless of you - as MM said, I can't imagine how tough it must be caring for someone.

    (Original post by Jean-Luc Picard)
    really don't know what to do anymore, just feel so lost, I hate so much about myself & the world & I feel so empty & sad all the time.

    I just want to stop feeling like this but I don't see how.

    I can't keep existing like this, it's too much, I just can't, I want out, but there is no way out.
    Sorry for not replying to this sooner :hugs:

    I'm sorry you had a rough night Not sure what to advise, but sending :hugs:

    Got any meets/socials to look forward to soon?

    (Original post by furryface12)
    Oops- pressed send before I'd even written the reply

    Not your fault! Are you feeling a bit better now?

    I love beaches, wish I lived near one! Yeah I did it with d of e, and last weekend, and going away with my cousins next week which I'm really worried about but hoping it will be the same That said, was so worried about last weekends it kind of made me partially forget about results until a couple of days before so that was good!

    I haven't seen tangled! I remember jungle book, hadn't seen lion king until last year though I don't think but it's amazinggg

    Got ABC which wasn't what I needed but I'm happy Hopefully going to retake a couple next year as one of the physics modules (B) was a D and the further maths A2s (C) were CEU as they were at the end when I was really ill

    How are you?
    It's okay I didn't see I always end up doing that with fb messages

    Physically yeah definitely Still possibly a little more tired than usual, but pretty much fully mended Not queasy/anything, and managed to walk into town today - so can't be too bad

    :cool: I haven't been down to the cove or beach for ages now you mention it :eek: Should probably visit soon/get outside more. Hope it's the same too :hugs: Sure it will be Haha, that's helpful Always good to get something like that to do for results/nervous-y things.

    You should! :eek: Ah, haven't seen it in a long while now Probably should at some point - have a friend who's mildly fanatical about disney, so might well be roped into watching it some time next year

    Well done!! Sorry it wasn't what you needed, but yeah retakes'll be good. Yes - did very well considering ill-ness! :hugs: and I guess that's sort of comforting though that you can do them when not ill? if that makes sense.

    I'm odd. Not quite sure still Had today by myself, parents went off to spain this morning, and relatives coming to stay from Tuesday evening. Think I'll chill tonight, and deciding what to do tomorrow Might go walking, or chill here and maybe watch a film at the cinema
    How about you? :hugs:

    (Original post by lauraaaaa)
    It's okay haha. I'll make sure this year to name one penelope, just for you I still haven't bough ANYTHING for uni yet, but I only just found out on Thursday that ill be moving out (kinda scared), so now i can start shopping properly for things to take! Hopefully i'll have money for pretty stationary. Feel free to donate any unwanted stationary :lol:
    yeah I'm feeling pretty much fine now, just a cough! I was up ALL night on wednesday constantly choking -.- harry potter was really good too, but it would have been better if i hadn't have been ill, but oh well
    ooh i LOVE being home alone, suuuuuch a nice feeling to know that i can do whatever i want and there'll be no one to tell me off or whatever (not that i do anything i shouldn't ) hahah. I'm sure it'll be fine when your cousins arrive, but you can always rant at me or whatever I just say to mine 'you do know the door was shut on the way in' and that tends to get them to come back and shut it tehe.
    Sorry that you aren't feeling well, is there anything thats particularly the problem? :/ :hugs:I've been feeling relatively good since i found out my a levels and realised I'm not a complete failure so atm I'm in a decent mood most of the time, but I'm starting to get some anxieties about going etc.

    oh and, in relation to your other post about having done nothing this summer, that DOESNT MATTER. I've done nothing either, no job, rarely met up with friends, no organising for uni, and i honestly don't care, I've enjoyed myself and i've done the much needed relaxing before the next academic year starts. it honestly doesn't make you a failure or useless, you can spend your time doing whatever you want to do, and if that involves not feeling able to do 'normal' things, then thats perfectly okay! You're allowed to take time for yourself and hide for a while!
    :woo: Thanks Still got lots of time Plus everything's on sale now! (At least for Uni-y things) Let's hope so :yep: Well I have a few pens that don't work - That okay? :lol:

    Good Oh I hate it when coughs are bad like that. (if by choking you mean the cough that just won't go away/leaves you in coughing fits (?))
    Haha exactly (:hmmm:)
    Yeah I hope so - sort of thinking it might be nice to have company that aren't parents, though just as long as when I want time alone they give it me - luckily have the car so can always just drive somewhere obscure Thanks

    Thanks Don't really know Think it's just summer/feeling lonely/Uni approaching, (which while I love it sort of semi-scared about how it's going to be like) and also saying good-bye to my pet degu
    Woo good Glad you're feeling positive about stuff! Yeah I was quite scared going too but hopefully there are some excited nerves in there too as well as anxiety? If you ever want to chat about it then do feel free

    Thanks for that Nice to know I'm not alone in doing nothing much (Though just realised you went to scotland! :eek: ) Thank you though I guess I forget that it's there as a relaxation period between years, even if I've spent a long time doing/am still not really that relaxed

    when my boyfriend leaves me to go to uni i wont cope i know i wont
    i stroked a police horsey yesterday name bernie
    BERNIE
    kiss kiss
    Sorry things are getting worse Is it anything in particular/could you see GP if things are getting bad? :console:
    Might not help with life-plans at all, but could you try something like volunteering or something? I know I did some for my DofE award in a charity shop, though I didn't have MH stuff then, it was still quite a nice thing to do each week that was different from the usual - I was just in the top of the shop too, sorting books! Was somehow quite relaxing

    Is he Uni-ing fairly close by to you/can you visit him every now and then still?

    Haha I like horses - Even if they're sort of scary

    I'll use the disclaimer from the beginning that this will be erratic so hopefully that won't dissuade you too much from reading it.

    Today - I just realised I go into moods for no reason and get annoyed with them when they blame themselves. I am sorry but I should be able to retreat into myself without being made to feel guilty.

    I am an introvert which people don't realise because they still confuse shy and introverted so when I need my space they get upset with me. I am in the thrust of an anxiety attack and my chest is still really tight. I removed myself to his sister's bedroom and now he is throwing a strop and playing Goth rock loudly.

    This summer - There is only one place in the world that I care about: it's my sanctuary. I sullied it - I drank and did stuff with people I had no business doing it with. I was sexually assaulted but everyone thinks I am a skank and easy so probably I deserved it.

    Life - I make people promises I can't keep. I give false hope yet I am just a mess. I am in a ridiculously intense relationship and he has me on a pedestal - I know I'll disappoint. No one should depend on me because I am flighty. It'll be long distance in 9 days and I don't know what I'll do.

    I write on this thread often and it's actually different drama this time but still anxiety related tbf. I am genuinely scared I am pregnant this time too.
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Really sorry to hear that things/people aren't being great Especially the sexual assault! :hugs: No-one deserves something like that.

    I'm afraid I can't advise at all about relationships really But hope it goes okay with them

    Can you take a test to check? Or could you visit GP just to make sure? :hugs:

    (Original post by Danny the Geezer)
    I've come to accept my situation-single, mateless and jobless. And before you say "change it" I will tell you I have been trying-I started working volantrary (as I am signed off work) and I thought it woiuld make me mates-no.I thought it would give me a purpose, But now I'm looking to step up into paid work and I know I can't because of my health. I dropped out of uni three times. Good courses too. I can't get a gf as I am restricted to online dating (simply just don't go out enough or know enough people or work with anyone) plus prefer getting to know people online. And I have looked online but its a minefield. The guys just want one thing so I've been told and the girls are too picky. That's if you meet someone with your personality and looks criteria that lives near you-and even then they'd have to accept and understand my problems. And I just don't see it. That's even if I really want a relationship. Then there's the mates. Most people in my experience aren't true. I met a mate through my music hobby and we went to nights and worked on music but he just started blanking me. My uni mates have long moved on literally and metaphorically. I don't have anyone where I volunteer or where I live or from school or college. Then there's the health, namely depression and paranoia. I know my situation is largely circumstantial and I don't take anti-deps but tbh my care has been atrocious. They keep changing doctor and social worker. They misdiagnosed me for a fair few years. They keep cancelling appointments. They haven't so much as hinted about offering me therapy which can quadruple the effectiveness rate when combined with meds. So what do I do? I know I can't live like this much longer but what do I do? I just envisage a liffe of unhappiness. It's what I've come to know anyway.
    Hey Sorry that doctor's have been pretty rubbish, and also about jobs/mates :console: I guess could you ask GP directly about meds as well as a referral to therapy? Sounds as though they're not the best GP, but maybe worth a try? Or could you change GPs even to a different one closeby?
    For friends could you try joining some sort of club/hobby thing near you? You mentioned music, I know

    Sorry I'm not much more help Hope things improve for you soon though

    Ah Hope they kick in soon or something They were a dose increase, right? That's not too bad What time did you get to sleep? No, I'm never sure I think in general I need to be trying harder to fight the MH/make more of an effort for a routine/getting stuff done, it's just difficult, and the fact the MH is there makes it difficult to know how much to blame yourself

    Yeah - I think my mum was saying that my grandparents would buy me a £30 pokemon game for christmas or something, and then she'd watch on horrified as a year later or something I was selling it for £3 :eek: And now games like Blue and Yellow sell for like £15-20! Unfortunately the atari/SNES and things were past my time :sad:
    Haha that's an awesome idea

    Yeah I'd have to agree with you there Well, I have SoulSilver but same thing - originally of the 2 I had gold Currently close to the end/got 2 more kanto gyms to go, then elite 4, then Red Ah okay :/ I might just give it a go so I'm not too out of the loop of new pokemon, plus they're fairly cheap even brand new on ebay - like £10 or something!
    Yeah my friend sort of liked Y but also thought it was too easy/help is thrown at you. No, maybe not

    Thanks I guess I just need to think of this as a long extended relax period, and I guess not everyone does something with their summer either. Most people do something though Yeah I hadn't thought as far ahead as xmas really - maybe should start planning some things now or something
