    For sure I still haven't worked up the guts to ask for a code thing and password :getmecoat: Well done you for doing that though - can't have been easy! :rave:



    I get a bit embarrassed about it sometimes coz I'm really too old to be having my mum phone up for me. I just remind myself that I'm mentally disabled and that I need to be kinder to myself about these kinda things though :o:
    It was scary! I was in an upbeat moment though and I was feeling productive so I just went for it before my anxiety took over again .

    Don't be embarrassed about it, I get my mum to do the same for me too, phone calls are absolutely terrifying. It's not your fault :hugs:

    It's enough to put people off. Yay for recognising that people have phone phobia.
    It really is, phone calls are really nervewracking!

    Just to butt in here, I agree telephone calls are ****ing terrifying. I've made more phone calls in the past year than my whole life together and it really hasn't got any easier. I still have to practice beforehand

    Same, they're just scary and I have to rehearse what I'm going to say a lot and then build up some courage to use the phone

    Replacement laptop? Most shops will let you take back laptops/change things round, I'd think
    Also - I meant to reply ages ago - but massive well done's on your results from last week or something - is amazing and should be so proud of yourself! :hugs: Really happy it all turned out okay
    :woo:


    ---------------------------------------------------


    Was having an alright day I think, then talking to mum after watching bake-off and she starts talking about this summer/how next year will be, and how they're disappointed that I've not done anything this summer, and that I haven't gotten a job, and then asks about dofe and work placements for next year and what I'm going to do to keep up next year. Says she's proud of my results this year, but still just so and just reminded me of it all. Sort of just want to say "I've had a horrible year and summer and getting a job's difficult and super scary" but can't.

    Sorry for not posting in ages - I hope you're all okay :hugs: Got people to reply to, I know :getmecoat:

    Moving back to Uni in 2/3 days - scary! Going to do some packing tonight, but generally about if anyone needs a chat/PM/scrabble

    :hugs: about your step dad, hun.
    My dad is being similar, even though I told them the reason I'm resitting was MH stuff he thinks I was just lazy and out getting drunk all the time

    And I had a look at the bit of the email you posted, and I'd say you read it right, it seems positive :jumphug:

    Oh yeah, I know what you mean! I've been known to stay up all night if I have a super important phonecall the next day just because I get so scared.

    My wife has been forcing me to make all the calls as she has this strange idea that I'll hate them less if I have to make millions. :sigh:

    I think I can see where you're coming from with it meaning the opposite but I think that would be incredibly cruel of her to phrase it like that so I would be inclined to believe your first interpretation.

    also, I saw your post about antidepressants. I really don't get their reasoning normally it's too easy to get them. Is there no one you can ask for a second opinion?

    I just seem to have it in my brain that shes telling me to get my hopes up but its a big lie! I just know

    Yeah i dont understand their reasoning either considering they didnt want me on quetiapine for long, so thought theyd want me off that not on more!
    Well its up to me, my dr said shed only go with it if i agreed but i worry if i say no ill be left with nothing as she kinda goes with the MH team as guidence...

    Ever feel like you want to say so much to someone but your anxiety gets in the way? I mean someone who you really like 😍but you go to speak to them and you like... shut down😩And it makes you feel like the worlds telling you it just isnt meant to be. You wonder "what if I had more confidence"😢
    And the phonecall thing ? ... Damn I will sometimes shake with anxiety after coming off the phone

    There is some evidence that quetiapine can help with depression as well as psychosis and paranoia, although it's generally as an add-on rather than by itself. So maybe they're hoping the increase in that is enough to help your depression?

    Was getting more and more annoyed at myself for being completely incapable of doing anything like a normal person, or anything at all. Plus parents having a massive go at me for not being able to concentrate or remember anything (do they think I can help it? It drives me mad far more than them!), tired and feel generally crap and just got in a complete mess over it all and didn't know what to do with myself! There's a load more going on too but can't really say on here, not sure as I really want to go into it anyway

    Sorry about the rant, really not had the best couple of days sorry! Don't feel you need to reply to any of it, kind of just needed to get it out of my system How are you?

    awww .:hugs:. Sometimes people just don't understand. They aren't trying to wind you up or anything, its just they don't get it.

    Don't worry about the rant! :hugs:.
    I've been good thanks . Felt a little down about the whole being single stuff, but I get that from time to time.

    Same! I hate it when job interviews wanna have a phone interview because that's just not a good idea for my MH at all!
