    I know it might feel it but I promise you there's still reason to be optimistic about it :hugs:

    My psychiatrist this morning was like "you drank A BEER yesterday??? You are not supposed to drink on these meds! it gives lots of side effects! I told you this last time (me: no you didn't). I think you have a bit of a selective memory there. No more beer".

    So I guess cider's ok.


    On a positive note she's going to be writing me (well, one of her underlings will) a letter to give to the disability services. I'm not confident that it's not going to have something wrong, but I got the ball rolling.

    I think there may have been some confusion - I told her before that I drink a couple of hard ciders a week. In the US, cider is basically apple juice, whereas "hard cider" is the alcoholic drink so it's possible she thought I meant apple juice? :confused: :iiam:

    How come you're up at 4am?

    Americas strange why not just have cider and apple juice?

    Because my bodies decided insomnia is the way forward atm. Either that or its because im reducing my venlafaxine? Which reminds me i need to take it :facepalm:

    Thank you :hugs: I'm so sorry to hear about your pet, if you want to talk feel free to mail me anytime :hugs: I lost two last year and it broke my heart so it was all brought back tonight :cry2: Rambo got on ok at the vet. The vet said the lump is too small to biopsy atm so we've to watch it for a month or two and if it grows, then he'll take a biopsy but he said don't be concerned right now. I hate the watching and waiting game

    Thanks, you too :hugs: I'm glad the vet isn't too concerned right now. Hopefully it doesn't get any bigger

    yeah of course. It wasnt a plan, just nice to know that options are available. My mental health can be really unpredictable because it depends which of my parts is in control. Not just my mental health like mood and stuff but a real cognitive struggle. Ive sat down to read research papers and ive not had the foggiest what any of it means because ive switched into child mode. Or I cant drive to get to uni. Or even if I can get to uni and understand the lectures, my speech is slurred like a drunk person, i have no spatial awareness and what speech isnt slurred is often back to front!

    The reason a therapist will try to bring you into the present is because theres no deep input with a dissociated person. Theres no recovery work available. Same is true for complex input elsewhere. Its better for me not to attend that day than deal with social exclusion, embarrassment/shame/guilt/triggers. But i often go in regardless and just record the session.

    Massive triggers were thrown at me consecutively.
    I feel worthless and I feel like nobody would notice even if I just disappeared right now. (which I know isn't true but it feels that way...)
    I don't know how long more I'll be able to deal with this before I go completely insane or...yeah.

    Idk if anyone can help with this (probably end up deleting it ) but does anyone know anything about sleeping because this is getting like beyond stupid.
    it isnt even the nightmares that bother me that much anymore, never 'tasted' anything until last night tho, that is a new one.
    it is the waking up that really pisses me off.
    like once i can deal with, but repeatedly consectutively at 4am is really annoying especially bc lets say i go to bed at 12am ish then i get woken up at 4 then i only have 3 hours then before i have to get up again and sometimes i cant fall asleep till five and then ill have a nightmare at about 7 so it feels like i acc never sleep :/
    any ideas/advice/idk what pls fix me

    It sounds like you're going a really tough time :/ I think the people here in this society would notice if you disappeared :hugs: Does anyone in real know you're currently feeling?

    Hmm I'm working with a therapist so she knows I suppose. None other than her though. A friend knows about my conditions but I never tell him about how I'm feeling because I like to hang out with my friends as if nothing is wrong and all is well :/

    I feel like there's no way out of these feelings, and nobody who understands

    Every night this week I've felt suicidal - less so tonight, but it has taken a lot of effort to pull myself up

    I just want to look forward to something, and feel something for someone

    My feelings have been dampened for such a long time that I'm starting to think I won't get them back

    What's wrong with me?

    Gone off anon to try and get a response. I don't know how to feel better any more

    I don't know your situation so I'll start with the basics. Have you seen your GP? Are you at university - could you go talk to a counselor or have you asked your GP/psychiatrist for a referral to a psychologist for CBT?
