    People are only meant to be in the EIS for 3 years maximum before getting sent elsewhere for help, so my time is almost up (I started there properly in July 2010, after a one-off January 2010 appointment) :emo:




    Thanks lovely :hugs: Yeah, this one apparently specialises/is interested in mood disorders, so maybe she'll take me more seriously and be more attentive :yes:

    That said, I do feel like I should give this psychiatrist a present. He's written lots of doctors' notes for me at no charge :ahee: But what on earth do you buy for a male psychiatrist? :dontknow: :confused:

    Maybe he can just have a card
    I hope so, it might be nice to have a female too :yes: :hugs:

    Eeek! Men are so hard to buy for! Short of an x box game I wouldn't know what to suggest :lol:
    I think a nice card is one of the best gifts someone can give though, actually :yes:

    If you don't mind me asking, what happened?

    I know what you mean when people ask for money, e.g. in department stores, or people in the street. Even when I imply I'm not interested at the moment they continued to hassle me.

    I don't agree, I think you are a lovely person and stronger than you give yourself credit for. :hugs: I'm doing okay but I've had a pretty lousy day. Found out my gran is back in hospital and probably doesn't have long left, and my mum will probably be getting the sack from work despite them being the ones who caused her injury in the first place. :mad:
    Oh my love, I'm so so sorry :jumphug: That's an awful lot to take on at once. Have you got any support at home?

    New drug for TLG, after nearly 2 years :crazy:



    Also, my psychiatrist remembered that he's supposed to be kicking me out of the EIS, so next month is last appointment He threatened to just leave me with my GP again but I was like, "hell no!" so hopefully will get a new psychiatrist (forget the name but sounded potentially like a lady doc :gah: ) with the CMHT :yes:



    Tell the voices to eff off coz TLG says they're wrong. And TLG has an Oxford degree, therefore TLG must be right :p: :smartass: :smug:

    Do you know who is supposed to be in charge of exams for your department? Maybe take it up with them? Or go to your personal tutor/academic tutor and let them sort it all out :hugs:[/QUOTE]

    Hope new meds and new psych are good for you :jumphug: How are you doing? Thank you for your posts, I'm really grateful.

    I emailed my department various times about the exam (which was at 5pm) and they replied to me at 6pm. And all they did was just give me forms to fill out that I already have. I told my personal tutor and he's being nice about things. Had to do the exam in the end, went horrendously. Just feel like a huge failure at the moment, like I'm faulty.

    Trying to work is just draining me so much. Feel like maybe I'm not well enough to be here doing my degree atm, but I'm also SO close to the end of the year and I don't want to have to do it all again. So I'm trying. It's just like as I'm writing the essay all the energy from my brain is seeping out all over the paper and I'm all wobbly and barely standing up as it is so by the end I might just be all collapsed from the effort. It shouldn't take so much effort to do this and it's worrying me cos I thought I was doing better and now I'm wondering if I'm slipping back deeper into the depressive episode. Been at moderate for a couple of weeks and I don't wanna get all severe again but my voice is slowing down and my appetite has gone which are bad signs. It doesn't make sense though. I swear when you get better you're meant to travel up in a vaguely straight line not all oscillate and wobble all over the place and keep slipping back down again (even though my therapist did say that's how she expected it to go. So I guess I should have listened to the voice of experience). Bleh.

    :jumphug: Are you able to communicate to tutors and things about this? And any of the MH support you're getting? The fact you've felt things have been slightly better for even a few weeks is something positive, even if it unfortunately happens you feel yourself slipping again, it's not your fault, it's one of cruel things about depression. If your appetite is gone, do try and stomach something simple like porridge or soup or something, it's so important to try to do the very basics. Not eating can make everything feel 10000x worse, especially with energy, so try and keep some sort of meal time routine it. I know it's hard but I feel positive for you that you've seen an improvement for a few weeks, that's something to give you hope if you do get into a bad period. :hugs: :console:

    :jumphug: Is there anyone around you to keep you calm? Try and keep as relaxed as you can, maybe try some gentle distractions and focus on breathing? Hope you're okay :console:

    It's one of the worst things I think, the constant up and down. :hugs: What's today been like? :hugs: Have you got any support from your 6th form or anything like that?

    Thank you, I really appreciate it. :hugs:

    My mum but I don't wanna b other her as I've kept her up with these constant panic attacks all week and she's getting sick of it. I'm trying to distract myself, it helps until I have to sleep and then I get a rush of morbid thoughts. Thanks :hugs:

    Can you try some deep breathing and focusing on a spot in your room? This sometimes helps me. Has something triggered this? :hugs:

    I had a blood test lasyt week and ever since bthen it's spiked, but medical things are an issue for me because I had a bad experience when I was a child in hospital and it's messed me up. I also have a terminally ill family member which has given me a morbid fixation on philosophical questions about death.

    I'm trying to use the calming braething techniques, it helps a bit but it keeps coming back.

    Keep trying, every minute you can do it, you're eventually pushing it away :hugs:

    :hugs: I just seem to feel as though I get to rock bottom but then somehow things get worse :dontknow: Today I've been jumping between teary hopelessness to complete emptiness. Things have definitely gotten worse in terms of functioning, I barely go to sixth form any more, but I don't really get any support from them. Exam stress is really getting me down though and I regret not saying anything to my sixth form. I am on Mirtazapine now though and am getting a little support from GP and CMHT so yeah. There's hope I suppose? Thanks for being so lovely, though hun :hugs:

    :jumphug: I understand, though if things get worse I would definitely reach out to her, it's good there's someone at least :console: I wish I knew what suggest. Are you on meds for anxiety? :hugs: Try and keep your breathing under control if you can :console:
