    That sounds very serious.

    Please talk to a professional about all of this ASAP.*
    My parents are taking me in to see my GP tomorrow.

    My anxiety is at an all time high. The last time it was this high was before I had my first psychotic episode. I had a nightmare last night that I was seeing flashing lights and shapes in my vision and hearing horrible things being shouted at me. I'm not sure whether this is because i'm worrying or is the start of something more serious.

    I phoned the samaritans yesterday because I was seriously considering doing something and the guy was really nice but talking about my problems really made me feel worse. I guess this is why my mental health coordinator doesnt want me to start counselling again.

    I feel like i'm going to fail my degree. I am not going to lectures because i'm too anxious. Luckily the information from each lecture on evision is pretty good but still i'm really worried. On top of this student finance are awarding me minimum support because my dad sent in a council tax bill as marital evidence but cause my brother lives with him it doesn't count.. so now we have nowhere to go with it. It means I can't afford my accommodation next semester and i'm just a mess :cry2:

    I'm a bit of a mess right now

    I feel really anxious tonight. I was getting on with my work and I just kinda started remembering everything that's been going on with me over the years that I've blocked out and forgotten and I don't really know what's happening there

    You've probably answered this on here before (sorry, crappy memory); are you seeing a counselor/psychologist/someone you talk to?

    I would recommend writing down each of these things and telling yourself that you will discuss them with someone. I find it difficult to block out these kind of thoughts too but if you tell yourself that, in the near future, you'll entertain them then it makes it (for me at least) more able to get on with what I was doing.

    Does anyone have any experience of IPT? Got my first session on tuesday and don't really know what to expect, I know nothing about it and really ill physically at the minute which doesn't help. I'd never even heard of it before they offered it to me so just said yes

    Feel like I've asked this before but can't for the life of me find it so sorry if anyone replied! Hope people are doing as okay as possible

    Haha I'm not sure I've talked about it so much around here actually. I saw two counsellors in school when I was like 13/14, nothing since then. The first called me names, and the second said I just wanted attention :laugh: I know they're not all like that, but I just didn't feel like counselling was for me. I can talk about my problems all day, but I need a lot more guidance and stuff than that. I haven't seen a psychologist or anything. My GP gave me medication and just made sure it agreed with me for a couple months, and I've always dealt with it through him. I do plan on going and asking for a referral to someone in a few weeks though. I know I need to see someone at this point, I just need to make sure I actually do it. That's a really good idea though, I'll have to note it all down. I'm terrible for forgetting information when I need it so at least I'll be able to refer back to it as well

    Hi, sorry! I saw you asked this when you'd heard about it and I meant to reply, but it completely slipped my mind! I haven't had it myself, or heard a massive amount about it, but from what I hear it can be quite helpful. I spoke to someone once, and they said it was like making links between things and there was a lot of focus on relationships as well. I hope you get on well! Sorry to hear you're unwell

    Keep hearing people call my name over and over again. And they are strangers because they keep calling me Francesca, and my normal voices never call me that, they usually call me Cesca, like everyone does, so I don't know who these people are. And I went to the gym today and nearly threw up in my fitness class, and I saw a woman on one of the rowers who so looked like my mother, and my head is just ****ing with me, and I don't know what to do, I'm just sitting here listening to music trying to drown it all out, and talking to Ethan, but my head hurts and so do my eyes, and they won't shut up.

    Don't worry! Yeah that's pretty much what I've heard. Will give it a go and see what happens, hopefully it'll help a bit. Thanks, CFS sucks but you know that as well as I do :/ hope you're doing okay, thanks for the reply

    Thank you both :hugs:

    The lump has gotten a little bigger and changed from round to kind of oblong and there seems to be another little lump next to it. I'm not taking any chances so Callan's at the vets with him now and I'm waiting at home with the rest of the cats and eagerly awaiting an update
