    Most definitely not you - I broke myself, dw Hard to explain without explaining the whole back story, but the jist of it is that I appear to be reliving/going through the motions of my Oxford breakdown again, in spectacular fashion

    I'm struggling. I'm not sure if it's the government or a relapse due to stopping the clozapine, but something isn't right. I feel scared to tell my CCO and psychiatrist about what's going on for fear of section. I've been in hospital 17 times now, I can deal with it (I hate it though) but I don't see how I can do well at uni if a) I can't go to lectures b) they either take my laptop away from me in hospital or won't let me have the charger so can only study for a few hours a day. I really want a distinction this year for my masters. I'm in such a conundrum.

    On a positive note, I've been thinking of 'coming out' as mentally ill to my course mates soon. I feel it's the right time and the right people to do so. Maybe not publicly on faceboook or anything just yet, but still, a step.

    Sounds like a relapse, in all honesty Do try and inform the appropriate people. Your health, wellbeing and safety are far more important than any degree.

    Good on you for the last para, btw

    But is it though? If safety becomes an issue then of course I will seek the appropriate help (unlikely to get to that point tbh). But if I don't do well at MSc I won't be able to get onto a PhD, won't be able to do research, which is what I live for. I can get help anytime, I can't re-do a crap degree class.

    Thanks You have been part of my inspiration to do so!

    I spoke to my manager about a demotion and I think he's said thats fine. I can't cope with an manager role right now so something less stressful might help me big time.

    Glad to hear you didn't get sectioned. :five:

    With your degree, if things really do get bad then have you thought about taking a break from it? Or else just get extensions on everything? For my masters I got over a year extension on my dissertation and went from definitely wouldn't be able to write it to getting a merit. Universities should be understanding about health issues.

    And btw, I hope your "coming out" goes well.

    I told my new friend at uni and she was great about it!

    So is mine. Was meant to see him today but got a call to say he's off again. Not seen him in over 3 weeks and it's not good. :/

    Oh I see. Do you not qualify for benefits?

    That's really good that your friend took it well.

    I get low PIP (although have appealed for high as I was one point off and things have got worse since I was re-assessed) and might ask CCO about ESA next week as I don't feel able to work. But it's not enough to cover London rent + food + tuition fees, let alone the little extras like clothes and textbooks

    My masters is mostly self studied so I'm hoping that will help, not having to go into lectures everyday

    How are you anyway?
