    Moisturise them twice a day, everyday. Unfortunately there is no quick remedy but using a deep/heavy moisturiser will aid the skin in healing. Make sure you do not use petroleum jelly such as Vaseline, or that there is any used as an ingredient in the moisturiser. It will be labelled as petroleum or something that looks/sounds similar. Petroleum makes the skin think it is already moisturised, thus stopping the skins natural process of healing and moisturising. Really you should avoid it in all moisturisers anyway!

    Moisturiser has never really worked for me, I think because they're raised. Didn't know that about petroleum in moisturiser though!

    I was thinking of getting surgery/laser treatment to get rid of mine. Laser could possibly work on one of my arms but the other has too many scars for it to be effective. I still need to look into it a bit more like exact prices and stuff. Also need to make sure I don't do it again.

    Both of my thighs are covered in white scars (In the right light I look shiny :mmm:) and sporadically on my lower legs. Like you, I'm wondering if there's too many to cover. I've thought about laser treatment too but it would probably be silly for me to look into it now until I'm at least 6 months or so clean.

    can people here just make me re-read what I'm about to post whenever I am doubting it in future please?

    anyway; going to apply and do an access course so I can get back into education then go back to Uni, I want to do this, I need to do this. will give me something to aim for, will mean I am doing stuff, will mean I can meet people who share my interests, will mean I have a reason to sort out my sleep & anxiety which hopefully will help me with motivation to do so.

    but yeah. fighting bad thoughts and doubts already but gahhhh I should do this.

    Last night was good was very drunk for a time, right at the limit of how much I can drink. When out I seem to alternate between having a good night and having a crap night, well, at our SU bar anyway. Last night was one of the good ones . Then ended up talking to a girl, who pretty much gave me a lecture on her religious beliefs, not letting me get a word in! Lool

    The GP appt. went well, she said she wants me to keep seeing her on a regular basis though, just so she can keep an eye on me and help if anything goes wrong with uni. stuff (then she can help out with the extenuating circumstances for more easily I guess). We had a long chat about stuff and she's happy with the coping mechanisms I'm trying to employ with the help of friends, still really hard though. Said I seemed a lot more relaxed, but truthfully, that was only because I was dissociating quite a lot. Forgotten what else happened in the appt. because of the dissociation. :facepalm: Was quite long though, over-ran by like ten minutes. Feel bad about that. Gah.

    How's everyone doing? :hugs: for those who need/want them.

    glad your GP appointment went well! it's good she can help with your extenuating circumstances as well, I had to do those a few times & was quite stressful! could you not have told her you were struggling during it or? it's okay if it over-runs, sometimes things do

    im okay, had a productive hour or so, sent some emails, sorted stuff in the flat out

    thanks hope you're doing okay Scary? :hugs:

    ---

    going to a protest on Saturday, not been to one in far too long but they sent me an invite on Facebook & I can get on the free coach the Uni's are using so that should be good. gotta sort out my nomination forms for council elections which is scary but my mums gonna help me with it tomorrow then getting help from someone else later as well.

    positive things Rory, POSITIVE THINGS. (this bit is just to reinforce them to my brain so it doesn't start having a meltdown )

    See, didn't I say GP appointment would be fine? Sorry you dissociated though. Don't feel bad about anything - that's the mark of a good GP, overrunning/running late, imho :yep:

    Saw my psychiatrist and got prescribed a mood-stabilizer on top of everything else. I added them up; I'm now on 12 pills a day! That's more than my grandma and she's 89 :nothing:

    I don't know if the psychiatrist thinks I'm bipolar or what.... :confused: Really should have asked.


    Anyone here taken a mood-stabilizer?
