    I'm glad you're doing okay :yes: Ah, me too hun. I didn't get to sleep until 5am this morning, then woke up at 8am :nothing: Are you just not tired or is there something bothering you? :console:
    Oh gosh. I went through a couple of months before Christmas where I was getting to sleep at 4am and waking up at 7am so I know how bad that feels. :console:
    I'm exhausted, just my head has chosen tonight to be especially loud. :nothing: Which I really didn't need. :sad: Are you not exhausted too? :eek:

    Hey I'm well thanks, been feeling a bit weird the last few days but it seems to have passed, I'm sure I'll feel better when my essay's done.

    How are you doing?
    Glad you're feeling a bit better!
    I'm okay thanks- just tired.

    Ah no, it's not nice at all! :shakecane: So sorry to hear that :console: If ever you feel like you'd like to talk to anyone (no pressure whatsoever) then my inbox is always open so feel free to PM any time :yes: I hope you manage to get some sleep soon! I was tired earlier, for sure, but now I'm wide awake I swear I'm nocturnal - but then that would involve sleeping in the day I guess - which never happens :nothing: :lol:

    I know, it's so horrible. Although it was better than the next few months where I was only sleeping on average once every three days. :facepalm: I really hope it changes for you soon- sleep deprivation is a horrible thing. :console: Makes everything else a hundred times worse. :sad:
    Thank you very much for the offer! :hugs:
    Currently watching old episodes of Have I Got News For You which usually makes me sleepy but it's not working tonight. My head is so loud

    Oh my goodness! That's awful :hugs: Thank you! Sleep hasn't been great for a fair few months and it really does make things worse:sad: Sorry to hear that hun, it's never nice Could you try something else to relax if that isn't working? Listen to some nice music, take a bath, or read? There's also some relaxing online games out there too - there's one called Music Catch - it's basic but quite soothing and relaxing :yes: It sometimes does the trick

    I wanna get tested for any brain illnesses cause I get called dopey a lot and I get annoyed if things don't go as planned and I just don't like crowds of people. Where do I go to get tested? I understand if I come off as a bit of a pretentious prick who is arrogant, but I'm sick of thinking there could be something wrong and my grandma suffers from dementia and general depression, I feel like I am to have the same fate as her!

    Oh I'm really sorry to hear that. It really does- it's horrible. :console:
    Nothing seems to be working tonight- I might take a cup of tea and go and sit on the back step and see if that can calm me down slightly. The only thing is, that worries my mum and I obviously don't want to do that.
    Oooh I've never heard of that- I'll have to look it up! Thank you. :hugs: Hopefully something will work- dont fancy an all nighter.

    :hugs: Don't be worried to do whatever you think will make you feel better: you could just tell your Mum you want a bit of air? Ah no worries, it's very simple but I play it when I feel agitated/stressed and it kinda helps me to focus my mind off of whatever is bothering me :yes: :hugs:

    Thank you Rory :hugs: I hope that they won't be too angry at me. Just family things/huge anxiety really, getting there would have required a 3 hour coach journey before the interview, I just couldn't

    I can't spoiler but in response to yours big big :jumphug: Remember you've got lots of support here and IRL if you need it. Take care of yourself :hugs:

    that's okay, if you explain to them that you had some personal issues am sure they should understand, especially if its a long journey for you! anxiety can be awful I know, do you have things you can do to help you stay calm and stuff?

    thanks, I know

    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.

    I've never been referred to a crisis team or anything, just had counselling and mental health advisor at Uni. I don't really know how I would go about it and doctors have never mentioned it. I just feel like the whole thing has been a complete waste of time and there's no point to even bothering.

    Oh, I didn't know how little support you have in place. No wonder you are feeling as if you can't get heard or proper help. No wonder you feel lost and frustrated. To be honest they are letting you down a bit as your GP should really have referred you to the proper local mental health team in order to make sure you have all the right support in place both now and for when the baby is born and to make sure you do have all the right numbers. Does the GP realise how depressed you are feeling?

    You can make an appointment again with a GP and this time explain that you need a proper referral URGENTLY to the mental health team in your area as your depression is worsening. Ask your mental health advisor at uni whether they can help get you referred by speaking to your GP or whatever is appropriate.

    If all else fails then there are a couple of other options:

    1. Get a relative or friend you trust to go to the local mental health outpatients clinic with you directly and ask to speak to the person (nurse) on duty (there will always be one). Explain the situation to them and that you need help.

    2. Look to see if there is an advocacy service locally. Advocates are people who help you by telephoning people or writing to people or accompanying you to get things sorted. There are lots of mental health advocates across the country and these work for advocacy charities so are free.

    3. If nothing works then PM me and let me know.

    Its horrible feeling like you're not getting anywhere but don't give up just yet!
