    Guess who doesn't have to go back on clozapine?!*

    Only because I can't be trusted to comply with medication and apparently stopping clozapine without supervision (which I've done twice already) is dangerous. Oh and psychiatrist is thinking about changing the olanzapine to a different AP that doesn't have as much weight gain and sedation so fingers crossed for that. Oh and my PIP is being re-assesed.

    Went skateboarding along the Thames today. Was so nice to get out and feel happy and not paranoid in public *

    The bit in bold; the first few weeks of 1st year will definitely be like that as they try and let everyone settle into new surroundings? People just look like they know what they're doing on the outside but on the inside, they'll probably be incredibly nervous too!

    With the friends thing; are you living in student accomodation? Also societies are an absolutely brilliant way to meet new people and make friends - alot of the people I talk to regularly and socialise with outside of my flat are people I've met through them
    is it like that for a lot of people? not knowing what to do in the first few weeks? i hope i'm not the only one. I live in student accommodation and i like my flat mates but i'm not super close with them. im going to some society meeting thing next week so hopefully i meet some nice people there

    Hey all,

    Just wanted to share my story if anyone is interested. I have a disgusting condition that I don't wish to go into specifics about, but its constantly ****ing up my life. i failed a levels twice, lost all of my friends,I have clinical depression. it comes in waves and last year it was the most potent. I've been actively seeking help, talking to therapy and helplines but it doesn't have the help i need. I do have regular doctor appointments every now and then but my mental state is ****.

    I don't know what the future holds for me because i failed consistently and haven't actively looked for alternatives , but i'm still continuing to live this *****y life. I'm not moved by pointless motivation quotes and etc. I just found a way to disconnect from everything. I know that long term this will hurt me but I have no other methods, as ****ed up as it sounds i'm too scared about suicide.

    Hi

    What is this method... I kind of have good times and bad times luckily I still have some good times. If you need any help we are here for you.

    This is my introducing thread http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...4#post67693286. I aim to get help and help others and hopefully get through this together. Sometimes reading certain stuff makes me upset so I am sorry If I can't be of help.

    P.S most of us are scared of death it is just how we feel

    Work today was a mess. Barely coped. Spent most the shift wanting to cry. Was thrown in at the deep end and making mistakes just means that I get shouted at. :cry:

    If there's anyway to jump out of your own head/skin I'd love to know how...

    Literally a mess today. Cannot focus on anything without feeling super angry and wanting run away... No where to run. No life to get on with.

    I think my housemates think I have a drug problem. I get a phone call at the same time every night, leave the house and pick something up from the car across the street and back in 2 minutes...

    I am actually seeing the crisis team who are giving me meds (didn't want them coming in my house, not ready to tell new housemates about my mental health just yet)*

    Out of interest (please tell me to piss off if I'm being too nosy) why do you need the liquid form? I was on the liquid form for stelazine as they'd stopped making the pill form and it was such a pain in the ass.

    Hope it helps you once you eventually get it.

    Was meant to attend a revision session at 5 but I came home to lie in bed. The voices were being so vicious that there's no way I'd take anything in. Lay down and started seeing loads of bugs all over the walls and ceiling. It wss disgusting and frightening. Took a pretty big dose of klonopin and hid under the blankets until I felt more relaxed. I hate this so much. I haven't been getting much sleep this past week as I have a terrible cough which makes me feel like my lungs and throat are burning. Notjing seems to be helping with that either.

    If it's aripiprazole, I warn you now it tastes grim. I had to take it with the wee syringes you use to give toddlers liquid meds because I just couldn't make myself swallow it.

    They can probably but with all medication I take, there is absolutely no guarantee it will work. This is my 7th attempt.

    I guess if it does work I will collect the repeat prescription a week before I actually need it in order to give the chemist time to get it in. I'll just have to explain that to my doctors.

    Trazodone's lowest dosage in capsule form is 50mg. They don't come scored as they are capsules. My dosage is 25mg a night. Hence liquid. It's all because I'm super sensitive to side effects.

    It's not. Been on that in tablet form. I collapsed. This one is apparently "sugar free" because I have to keep my weight down. ****.

    Therapy is kicking my butt at the moment and I'm a bit cross with my therapist. He struggles when I dissociate (which is fine, it's hard to focus when I'm in that state) but then he wants to poke on the very thing that makes me the most dissociated. I slur and struggle to speak. I know the point is to eventually poke enough that the dissociation lessens but I hate making him angry/frustrated. I also hate how much this is bringing out child parts. I don't name my parts. Sometimes think would be easier so we all know when someone new is in charge.

    Anyway. I'm overwhelmed and worried that I won't be able to do uni because, you know, a 6 year old can't do uni. Well unless a genius.
