    I get what you mean about wanting to play but also not wanted to ever show up again - I had that problem with hockey.
    Worse thing in that position: You can't make any right decision, or not for yourself (in my case), but for the others.

    Is there any way you could give it a rest until next season? Although obviously you won't improve at rugby in that time, you might be able to go in with a clean slate and try your best again. Dunno, just an idea
    Don't know either...only plan so far is to do at least some sports.

    Hello guys How are you lot? Things are about to get busy here, wedding starting on Saturday and tomorrow my incredibly cute little cousin is coming to stay . He moved to Birmingham in December and while I did visit him twice, I have also missed him. Looking forward to both things.

    Meanwhile, uni isn't as good. Again no revision so I was diabolical in my mock exam. And I missed a practical this morning and we were to start an assignment that is due next week Friday. Going to another group's practical tomorrow so I can get it started and know what to do :yep:.

    Didn't go SU last week because I was feeling really tired (but then stayed up beyond what I would have done if I'd gone) :/. Will be going tonight but first I need to change my bedsheets, been 2 months since I did that.
    :woo: Hi! Long time no speak, sorry, have meant to reply when you've posted before more recently, but just kept forgetting/have been in and out of posting sometimes :hide:
    I'm doing okay, been prescribed citalopram a few weeks ago/am going to start on it soon, though not sure when exactly yet was going to start today... :erm:
    Hope wedding and seeing cousin went well!

    Sorry Uni's not going as well - is just a mock remember? Don't know :console:
    Hope you're having fun with going out and stuff still Will need to change bedsheets when I go back too - always forget D: But yeah, hope you're okay :hugs:

    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.
    realise this is late/I've already vaguely spoken to you, but :woo:/bump

    Went out for lunch to try and get away from the cacophony in my apartment. An agent on the bus kept looking at me and taking pictures, made me feel like **** - especially as my wife refused to believe me.

    Almost April and it's snowing again. Not enough to settle but enough to make it ****ing cold.

    I keep getting images of what I need to do to myself in my mind. Doesn't seem to matter what I do, no distractions are working, just sitting bearing it.
    :jumphug: Sorry for not replying to your PM from quite a while ago was having another odd period/week of not being sure how/what to write on here, and yeah Really sorry you've been struggling still Hope the new meds work out okay/help - jealous of snow! :eek:

    Realised I don't have the social life I want to have anymore. Friends dropping out of contact and dropping out of shared hobbies and stuff. I'm not really getting much fulfillment from that side of life right now.

    Anyone got any tips or discussion on this? I've lost the ability to find new hobbies and friends and really just don't know how
    (Original post by james1211)
    Oops this was me
    :hugs:
    Would ditto what TLG's said, I think.
    For new hobbies/friends, I don't properly know/am worried about that side of things post-uni myself/with losing contact gradually with school friends, but I think just through work and stuff partly? and joining clubs and things in your area, sorry, that probably isn't the most helpful but :dontknow:
    Sorry you're finding it difficult atm :console:

    It's fine, thanks. Not too sure why I even posted, was just having a moan. Dad's come back now so at least that made me move/try and look normal I guess. Sorry you're spaced out, glad you're better than earlier though- around if you want me :hugs:

    I've thought about these things. Problem is i may be unemployed for some time after finishing uni this year, and i've looked into clubs locally but they all seem populated by older or younger people than me. No it is helpful, don't be silly!

    Missing home/where I used to live a lot Want to walk the same footpaths and stuff, just be free outside, and just go back 2 years - even if I've realised that low moods and stuff probably started then/I felt lost a lot during then/on the walks/when I started walking more, but don't know. Miss it, and miss home, and just feel a bit pensive and sad about it
    Could ramble for ages (and have done, probably ) but just one of those pensive moods where thoughts don't seem to end/they just keep going on and on.

    Anyway.

    Might write in diary I think! Was reading yearbook earlier too/messages people left behind and just lost contact with lots of people I shouldn't have/people I used to be close to/talk to lots at school, and is odd and sad.


    Going to start citalopram some time the next couple days, got to soon as exams in 3 weeks/want side effects to wear off in time, but keep getting scares/worries about it/going back and forth about it.

    Hope everyone's okay :hugs:

    How much older? Think it gets difficult now we're grown up and confusing to meet up with similar ages, though I understand if by older you mean like 40s+ and such Don't know.

    I think there *must* be ways to meet other people, but is just confusing! :eek: I try and think what my parents did, but they were married by the time they left university/got jobs, and then also had church, so I suppose that's where they met people - but not much help if you're not religious!

    Hope you work something out though - that said I'm sure you'll be fine

    I'm okay thanks - bit pensive I guess, done no work again but will start soon. Or I hope I do Trying to start citalopram/got the box on thursday, but chickened out this morning :hide:

    Like anything down to five years younger or older and more. I feel like there isn't anything for people ages 20-24, at least not that i can find outside of uni (i can't really be in a society when i've left and i never liked uni societies anyway). I think church is used by a lot of people as a way of socialising and forcing themselves to meet other people, clever really although i was never religious i can see the appeal of church in that way.

    I'll find something, it's more that i don't want a breakdown between now and then

    Ah. I still have two boxes of citalopram sitting in my room. It was fine for me i guess but never worked for me theraputically so i stopped it. I didn't like how i couldn't drink on it haha.

    Doing alright. Just a bit stressed and lonely i guess!

    Sorry for taking so long to reply to this Tried to yesterday (admittedly still late ) but was stupid and accidentally deleted :facepalm:
    No :/ hehe, thanks Trying to focus but time just seems to disappear Tutor knows about it, as does Linton (if you've spoken to her before?) - though I mean tutor when I told him last year/when I mentioned it the start of this year (I think I did anyway?) that he can't really do anything/just to keep people updated with any treatment I'm getting or something? I guess for when/if I fail something/for evidence :dontknow: Tempted to ask for an extension but then really have no clue
    All I have atm is "Something about rubik's cubes?" and nothing else So stupid. Sorry for rambles...

    Yeah :/ at least I suppose you shouldn't need it *too* much, at the same time? Though must be annoying, yeah Can you report it lost? I know you can for National Express/I think they just reprint you one for a small fee (like £10-20? :dontknow: maybe? Not sure about stagecoach/leam, though) That's good that you can get a replacement student card that's okay! :eek: Glad it's fine/you got what you needed is it a requirement of your let to be a student? I know that ours will be next year.

    thanks :hugs: Yeah, I probably should try just cinema being really busy atm, and even without that time just seems to disappear I swear and just don't know :/ Got a terrible sleep schedule now too, which isn't good either. Sorry, such a moan! Thanks - they've vaguely sorted now I think, and I hope so too!

    How're you doing?
    Wow I'm so sorry i didn't reply to this before! I've been up and down, had a bit of a rough spot when I was visiting leamington and the week after but things seem to be going better now *fingers crossed* so I'm trying to actually do some maths again to get back into it. My sleep pattern is pretty shocking though and concentration is not good, so I was looking at DSA stuff for next year maybe :dontknow:

    I see you've been prescribed citalopram and just wanted to say that although some people get horrific side effects on their antidepressants for the first couple of weeks you might be lucky like I was and get almost nothing - pretty much just dry lips and possibly some sleep stuff. I would definitely start them a few weeks before exams though to be on the safe side.

    I hope essay stuff went okay and you're doing alright? :hugs:

    Aww, are you at uni? Maybe going back to that place with someone will help you feel less low and sad and at the same time you'll feel less homesick as you would have visited it

    I've considered going back to a diary too :yep: Or a journal where I can freely just pen my thoughts. Writing is really cathartic. It's horrible thinking back to people you used to be close with but remember you have yet to meet so many more! Also, there's nothing wrong with trying to get back into contact with people you miss An old friend messaged me the other day and although it wasn't a massive conversation (was just about anime ) I felt happy that they still remembered me :awesome:

    I need to start taking my medication too and haven't yet as I've been scared and chickened out I think we just gotta convince ourselves that it's for the better, the positives outweigh the negatives

    Also, haven't spoken to you in a while so hi Ducky :hugs:
