    When I go back to uni im going to be seeing a new psychiatrist....

    What are the reasons I can give her for wanting to come off my CTO without it seeming like I want to 'break the conditions' once its gone?

    Always angers me when people say Mental Illnesses are disabilities!
    They're not (in my opinion) and more recognition is needed!
    They're more common than most people realize and they're a serious matter!
    We need to spread worldwide awareness for Mental Health and it needs to be taught in schools and workplaces!

    And my MH is improving. Had lots of depressive down spells recently but have had 2.5 happy days currently (hoping the rest of today is also happy!)
    The OCD is still the same though!

    For some they can be disabilities though. And sometimes it's called that for legal reasons such as claiming benefits or student support such as PIP or DSA.

    But I do agree with you on your other points of them being common and a serious matter.*

    Thanks. I'm really nervous. Thankfully it's at home and I'll have my friend with me.

    In some ways they are though, since they do affect many of us in day to day life. You do have a point about more recognition needed.

    Ok that's true, did think that through what I said. My bad! Sorry!

    And I'm glad you both agree about the recognition of it! There's just no where near enough awareness for it!

    Having a bit of a nightmare at the moment, part of my ceiling collapsed due to leak that my landlord never repaired, had to get fire brigade to break into upstairs tenants flat to stop it, and when he came back the next morning at 6am he was knocking on my door screaming at me (even though fire brigade fixed the lock after but not the damage) then he woke me up at 8am again slamming his door and speaking to other tenants about how bad I was for calling fire brigade out and basically how hes a victim!

    Im the one with holes so large in my ceiling that I can see the insulation and his floorboards, and walls black with heath damaging spores (already been coughing a lot and stinging eyes) and my landlord is making excuses at fixing it.

    Yet hes the victim not me, at least he has a property he can use with no damage.
