    Not looking good I think :sad:

    Last exam was today . That went well too. But now I've got a bleak future ahead. While many people are so excited for the summer and partying, going on holiday, and hanging around with friends, I haven't got anything :sad:. I do have my prom next week but for some reason I'm not looking forward to it :erm:. That is next week but after that it is all empty. Nothing good at all. I don't know whether it is my fault or not I didn't manage to make close friends during the last few years. Ok so my parents had stupid rules, didn't support me with it and those people in school weren't really my type and I was bullied, but surely it is my fault for not having in interest in music and football and trying to make sure I can fit in as well as I can? What 18 year old has no social life? Everyone my age spends a significant amount of time with friends whether outside or in, or with their cousins as an alternative. But here you have me with no cousins around my age and with no friends. On top of that my anger and violent thoughts are beginning to come back big time after suppressing them for ages. Doesn't make for a good summer at all. What will I say to people when I'm asked what I'm up to, or how my summer was? Or what will I say to my future children about my childhood? :cry2:

    Or am I being stupid yet again? :sad:
    Honestly I wouldn't worry about that - I had absolutely no social life, or even any friends, when I was 18: I'd closed myself off from everyone, gone off to a different college to isolate myself: things change when you get to uni, I've now got a great group of friends who really care about me.

    Don't get too worked up over your social life, because you've still got the best years of your life coming up.

    yeah i dont take a break, and never have had too, some months i dont have a period, some i have 1 but its VERY painful, and some i have more than 1. mother nature likes to keep me on my toes apparently

    Definitely see a female doctor! It's good to get a second opinion anyway. Wish I had done that a few months ago! Have you been checked for cysts before? I had them and they were causing really painful periods for me, although their solution was to put me on the pill which made them go away, so for you it might be more unlikely. They are ridiculously common though and quite harmless. Just means you have to have an ultrasound. If it is worrying you that much there must be something they can do about it. Painful periods are the absolute worst.

    I really don't want to see my counsellor; my body is making sure that I don't.

    When I think about going and telling the counsellor about my uregs and problems in my previous post, I get dizzy, hot and my heart beats really, really fast.

    I seriously don't know what to do.

    I plan to tell people I spent my summer playing Minecraft - which is the truth. If people don't like what I did the summer, **** them to put it bluntly. Do you not have any interest in music? And are you interested in other sports like cricket? You've managed to do okay at MH meets haven't you? Could you not look at taking something up to fill your time?

    Might aswell introduce myself again I guess; I have depression, anxiety, ptsd and aspergers. Talking about summer I finish college next week, then I'm going to do some volunteering, try and drag myself out for walks and bike rides, just try to keep busy I guess.

    Hello! :hugs: Long time no see!

    What kind of volunteering you going to be doing? I'm thinking of seeing if any mental health wards want volunteering for anything where I am - something along the lines of what fire2burn's been doing.

    I'm going to also drag myself out for walks/hikes! I'm actually planning a long-distance hike in Devon or Cornwall sometime. Really need to keep myself busy or else I'll just revert back to a bed-ridden mess now that school's over.

    Nice to meet you btw

    Our fridge freezer just packed in. Motor has gone. Great another thing to worry about. No food now - at least my mum could come pick the food up. But now we have to get a new fridge freezer. On top of the baby expenses... And we have no savings for this sort of thing. So not doing well.

    yeah, i might talk to the dr im seeing on tuesday, cos apparently she specialises in like gynocological stuff...
    no, i have wondered about it before though, i know my cousin had then, i think i need blood tests and stuff to see if there is an underlying problem, rather than being sent away with pain meds and being told its normal
    im so light now but its killing me, had a mefenamic acid about an hour ago and in pain already!

    I know , I've been trying to pass my AS exams for the second time.
    I'm going to volunteer for a charity book store that gives out books for free and in an organic allotment place where I can help package and sell the produce.
    Thats sounds good, I remember fire2burn talking about that, it sounded nice being able to support people like that, If I was in that situation I would appreciate someone understanding and more familiar to talk with so theres no harm in asking I guess.

    So my plan for tomorrow is to make a gp appointment, there's one at my practice who specialises in mental health but I can't remember her name. Annoyed at myself a bit because my mum made me an appointment to see her on saturday morning but I couldn't make it and was really annoyed since I told her the week before not to make any appointments for me.


    So yeah, calling to make gp appointments because it didn't give me a panic attack last time

    Hang on in there. There's time to work out what you are going to say. You don't have to say anything which makes you too uncomfortable.

    IDK just everyone in my life either ends up either ****ed up or more ****ed up. I shouldn't be around people.
    It's not your fault. It's a natural part of life and happens to almost everyone. The only reason it's happening to them is because they're the people you notice it happening to. Even if it is linked to you, if it wasn't you it'd be somebody else. You're a wonderful person and people appreciate you for it (take it from me). :hugs:
