    It's psychosis, similar to schizophrenia but not the same thing!
    Yes, I know that. :rolleyes: But the paranoid element of the psychotic delusion sounded similar to schizophrenia to me.

    Actually it was. I think you'll find.

    You can't come in here and insult people (and certainly not our Panda) and take your temper out on us.
    Nope, it wasn't. Provide evidence to support your assertion.

    Thanks - really unstable at the moment and I'm getting tired of it all. How are you?
    I know the feeling of instability. :/ I am pretty weary of life too at the moment. I really hope we can pull through this and beat the crap out of depression. If only a positive and optimistic thought like that could change anything...

    I really don't understand the whole "triggering" thing. It sounds like just an excuse to act overly dramatic just because you disagree with someone. I understand it in the case of childhood trauma/complex PTSD, but otherwise it seems a bit artificial to me.

    Ok, I don't post in here often, I read through on occasion and ask for advice when I need it and am always met with welcoming people and good sound advice from people experiencing similar problems to me. However I feel I just have to say that, you are posting in a support society. The idea is that you offer and receive support when you or others need it in a safe environment for all posters. People in here have a very wide range of problems and something that may seem like nothing to you is a huge "trigger" as you put it to somebody else and can really bring them down or make them remember something that has happened/been said that has previously hurt them. While I absolutely appreciate you have your own problems, it is in no way constructive to demean anyone else's feelings and call them over dramatic for something that has hurt them. You, and anyone else who needs it, are more than welcome in this society to be part of the supportive environment MHSS prides itself on.

    That's odd. Obviously I'm not a professional but I'm fairly sure it's a treatable symptom of psychosis. I can only speak from my own experience, but when I'm on the right dose/drug I don't think those kind of things at all. Have you told your psychiatrist? He'll be better trained in this area.
    Yeah my psychiatrist knows and my team have decided to treat it as a psychological matter not a psychiatric one.

    Please stop acting like a smart arse- it wont get you far in here.

    You said..

    I already mentioned that self-diagnosis isn't particularly valid, so why you felt the need to add that into your reply is beyond me.
    ... which was rude.

    Think Sherlock has covered it, tbh. People in here can get triggered by all kinds of things, some which may seem slight or nonsensical to others at first glance, but it doesn't make their anguish less valid. Lots of different issues, sore points and triggers in here, which is why we all try to be gentle and diplomatic with each other :yes:

    I understand your confusion regarding that 'trigger' is maybe overused on social justice campaigns of late and technically refers to the activation of suppressed trauma flashbacks in those with PTSD. However it is perfectly possible to 'trigger' someone on this thread who hasn't got PTSD.

    OK, well as an example you've probably seen that I have social anxiety caused by trust/intimacy issues (to the extent of paranoia) and body image issues (which are atm going back to an eating disorder phase). And yet on other parts of the forum I am talking about needing to reduce one's body fat down to 10% in order to be an attractive alpha male and it's your own fault. Then I disregard what is told to me in therapy in favour of this 'rational' natural selection/Social Darwinism/evolutionary biology model. Specifically I'll say something like "I didn't go to the gym today I'm a lazy beta **** virgin who will never get laid"-this is triggering in so many different ways, hurts those who are relapsing with depression, insecure about their attractiveness, have been cheated on, anorexics, bulimics, EDNOS, anxiety sufferers, sexual abuse survivors, etc. Samba called me out on it.

    I didn't make the philosophical argument in the Mental Health section regarding depression being a sign of stupidity because it would be major triggering would it not? I upset PandaWho a little with that too :/

    Once again telling someone they're being "overly dramatic" is invalidating their feelings and please consider we are fighting mental health stigma where us guys may get called lazy socially retarded pussies and fat-asses and the girls may get called ugly, psycho, drama queens-am I using enough triggering terms yet?



    I understand you find it hard, since your NPD makes it more difficult to empathise (and so do I because I have super-logical rants). I don't judge you for that. But TRY to understand that what you say may remind someone in a bad place of something they wanted to forget and be safe from around here

    As a Cambridge student myself I sometimes doubt that they take the very best. The ability to perform in exams and at interview doesn't make you better than others.

    Yeah my mates mentioned her rant at the pub a few weeks back, I'm not quite as bad as her but yeah something similar

    Yes it's a proper addiction now haha, I brought it up with my counsellor the other day. We will look at it slowly

    Idk I keep getting the niggling feeling Mum cheated on Dad and that's why they broke up and my ex cheated on me but lied about her religion and just uh I don't know how to trust like that anymore :/



    I'll reply to you and Furryface soon I haven't got much energy atm but it's good to hear you're busy and doing OK PD :hugs:

    Wasn't meaning you silly - she was just rude/sort of patronising/so eurgh just generally - not really meaning her viewpoint just her whole manner IMO - was rude to RICHARD AYOADE :eek: (:love:)

    Trying to cut down myself tbh Has definitely been an addiction at times/tbh probably still is :erm: (no reason for it to not be anymore - just trying to cut down, though I've tried before :sigh:) Not sure whether I'd mention it to counsellor, just because I'm not sure how they'd react at all/feel as though it might make other conversations with them odd - how have they been about it? Is yours a gal or a guy? (sorry for q's )

    I can understand then I guess having more doubts about it - I mean I can't say at all about your parents (though I think plenty of divorces will happen because of things other than cheating/any necessary wrong-doing - just incompatibility and stuff :dontknow:) I also can't properly say about your ex, but I guess I'd say from what you've said in the past that she probably wasn't. But I obviously can't properly say.

    Don't quite know what I'm to do with relationships either Last 2 people I asked out, one said yes and we texted lots for 2 weeks then she said she couldn't/didn't properly like me that way, at least close to Uni starting - felt quite like a rebound, and then the second went out on a date with, then she said she didn't want to go out, then she said just not now, and then she said finally no after like a month or 2 :erm: I mean it's neither of their's fault and I still love them very much as friends (were close friends before I asked them out), but is just :erm: about how relationships ever start/continue.

    Sorry for the ramble and no worries about replying - I need to get going anyway myself

    I'm not even sure what they're going to do tomorrow - the A&E doctor just said to ring the surgeon who did it and explain A&E said to ring them because it's infected. I've already got antibiotics, i'm assuming they just want me to ring them to check that there's not going to be any complications arise? Who knows, i don't do medical things very often

    I'm looking forward to going back but i want to feel better before i do so, i can't imagine being able to focus in any lectures like this
    Sounds confusing, but I'm sure they'll sort it out fine! No, me neither

    No, that's true Have you talked/emailed to tutor/support services or something to say you're (both physically and mentally) ill at the moment? They might be able to record lectures or something? or get you a recorder for the time being :dontknow:

    It's fine tasha Thanks though lovely :hugs:
    Was semi-rude, but I guess more just blunt/straight-forward rather than rude rude

    How is it rude? I'm just being honest. There was no need to reiterate the point. :confused:
    I just thought I'd maybe say to everyone that maybe it's best if we all left this alone for now Maybe. :dontknow:

    Don't like this conflict tbh/might be better that if anyone has nothing nice to say to anyone, then best to just move on/ignore.

    :dontknow:

    :hugs: to all though

    So she is dyslexic? It was implicated that if she did have dyslexia, I'd just move on and ignore the difficulty I had in understanding her posts. Sorry.
    no im not dyslexic, so i do appologise for my awful spelling and grammer. it is something i have struggled with my entire life, i have tried my hardest, but it is something i struggle with. so i appolgise it has caused you an inconvenience.

    She did start by insulting me...
    i have quoted myself below, and i feel i did not insult you once, i merely stated i dont care what uni you go to purely because to me it doesnt matter, i treat everyone on equal grounds unless you insult myself, my family or my friends.

    (Original post by PandaWho)
    if im honest i couldn't give a **** if your a Cambridge student or not. it really doesnt impress me at all. people go to uni for different reason, and apply to different unis for different reason.
    i think this elitist *******s should be removed from the university system.
    there is not better uni as each uni specializes in different things.

    I really do and I'm sorry for upsetting Panda and the others. I just really get pissed off scrolling down Tumblr and seeing *trigger warning* plastered everywhere. If someone had a phobia of clowns would you tag it with a trigger warning? It seems like a ridiculous precaution and just another means of censorship to protect oversensitive individuals. And I say this as a ****ing oversensitive wreck!

    You come in here, insult 99.9% of the population (those of us not at oxbridge), have a go at my friends, trigger my friends, are rude to my friends and generally piss people off and you expect us all to just sit here and take it without telling you how out of order you are?! :confused: Don't think you can see how much damage you're causing- and I'm one of the ones picking up the pieces.
