    No worries! No need to be scared - as TLG said, no one bites (except me - but only occasionally :ninja: :teehee: )

    Oh tiz always scary posting on a new thread. In a state of psychosis, I posted on the LGBT Chat thread then panicked and deleted it. Except Mazz had already replied to my post So then I replied, but he deleted his reply! Then I deleted my reply but he had already replied to it! We went round in circles for a while :teehee:

    Oh poor Mazz! :eek: Bless him. I imagine he was panicking when he realised!

    I get this from time to time. I tell my mum I feel "on edge" and she'll be like "why?" and I'll be like :dontknow: or say something that sounds really trivial to her but isn't to me.

    Not sure what to suggest to help you feel safer but please know that you're not a wimp AT ALL :hugs:
    Thanks for posting at least I'm not alone. I agree about the trivial thing too last night I thought I saw a shadow looking through the door it took me ages to calm down and sleep after the worst thing is that not giving an answer tends to make my wife angry which makes me more upset.

    How're things with you? Still in relapse? Hope not.

    :hugs: I'm sorry your wife got angry. My mum doesn't mind too much when I don't have a reason. In fact, usually it's my reasons that make her cross, coz she thinks I should get over myself :emo:

    Wasn't proper relapse in the end, just a blip. My boss was very nice and gave me time off work, which made me feel like a skank, but hopefully it means I can do the last week of my internship and finish in one piece :yes:

    Hey everyone. :wavey: Have never posted in here because I've never had the guts to but I've read the thread for a long time. Now seems as good a time as any to post. I hope that's okay!







    I get this quite a lot, I'll either be really paranoid and on edge or be totally terrified of nothing what-so-ever. Spent the whole of a holiday sleeping on a sofa in the living room where my dad was because it was the only room I wasn't curled up in a ball crying because I was so afraid. And there was nothing to be scared of- I was literally afraid of nothing. I couldn't explain it to anyone- it was just pure terror that rushed over me and seemed to come from nowhere. Sometimes I find it helps just being around other people, other times the only thing for it (for me anyway) is to curl up in a ball and wait for it to pass. Sorry that isn't much help at all but I do know what you're talking about so you're not the only one! And it doesn't make you pathetic or a wimp at all. :nah: Please don't think that! :hugs:
    Welcome to the thread.

    It's nice to know I'm not the only one although obviously bad that someone else is suffering. Right now I'm feeling really scared, it's 4.30pm and I've only left my bed for cereal earlier otherwise I'm doing your curl in a ball tactic.

    I've got work to do I shouldn't be giving in to my fears.

    You're right actually she probably would have got more angry if I gave a reason as she thinks my theories are stupid. *sigh*

    I'm really glad to hear it was just a blip :five: good luck with the rest of your internship.

    If you're having those thoughts you should definitely mention them. There is no negative to this really. It will help the therapist assess the situation. If you hide them from her she is really working in the dark a bit and you might not get the right treatment. If you also mention these to your GP then he can adapt your medication which can really help deal with these thoughts too. If they are pretty constant then it means your meds are not sorted properly yet.

    In the meantime a big HUG.

    Thanks for replying I'm not on any antidepressants because the GP feels it is too risky due to my age and increased suicide risk with their use etc. So not sure what she will do if I go back

    That was a big fat waste of time. I knew it would happen. Doc can't prescribe anything like diazepam because of pregnancy so gave me a prescription for a tiny amount of sertraline. I couldn't explain it all to him because of numbness. All anger has gone. I feel hopeless and scared and I knew it would be a ****ing waste of time. I felt like I wasted his time too. He said he didn't know why 111 booked me an appointment because there was nothing he could do. I don't know what the point of anything is. If I can't get help then how am I supposed to function like a normal person. So ****ing helpless.

    So sorry you're feeling so rubbish. I can understand why it's difficult to talk about things like that :console: I think going back to the GP is a very good idea though. :yep: Do you have anyone (friends/family) who you can talk to about this? I hope you feel better soon, sorry I can't give much advice, but hang on in there, things most definitely can get better :hugs:
    Thanks for the reply I don't have anyone I feel I can really speak to about it. I live at home with my parents and brother but my mum has to shoulder listening to them about their problems so gets upset when I talk about feeling down. There's no way I could tell her what I really think about

    Hey!


    Hope everyone had an okay weekend. Was feeling awful today but the acting class really lifted my mood which was good. Staying with my dad really isn't good for my mental health though but saves me travel money as its closer to central London. Going back to my mums tomorrow though as I want to get this essay done and its stressing me out.

    The GP is right that various anti-depressants are not approved for use under the age of eighteen. However there some approved anti-depressants for this age group and if your GP is not confident in prescribing and monitoring these then they need to refer you to a psychiatrist who is a specialist in these meds. Could you mention that a referral might be good if they don't feel they can prescribe meds themselves? Its just that the risk of meds has to be balanced against the risk of those particular thoughts becoming overwhelming. At the least, if you can't take meds, they should be seeing you regularly via a CPN if you are having these thoughts. It shouldn't be up to you to be having to make GP appointments and the like to get through.

    Great that you are able to talk on here though. It can get much better. Hold on in there.

    HUG,

    Thank you! :hugs:

    :penguinhug:

    Sorry you're feeling so bad. Don't beat yourself up about giving in to it though! Sometimes there is nothing else you can do- it doesn't make you weak or anything. :nah: I hope it passes soon for you.

    Oh that sucks.

    These night time doctors aren't really up to dealing with this kind of thing.

    I wondered if you had been given the crisis number for the local mental health team. At the very least the person on duty would understand the nature of your feelings and situation better.

    Hang on in there. You're so close to having the baby and then you'll be able to get meds.and things will feel so much better.

    No worries! Sorry I can't be of much help Really sorry to hear that though - it's tough when you feel as there's no one there :console: Feel free to PM any time if you ever think getting it out would help. Please just know that you are in no way alone, and people care for you more than you could ever imagine - I think that's something people often overlook that fact when they feel really low. Really hoping you feel better soon :jumphug:
