    Yay for secret santa will pm with details.

    Feeling bit Christmassy today because I bought bunch of gifts for my nephew. Heard first Xmas songs in a shop too.

    Meds making my mouth drier than the desert and bit agitated but more focussed. Able to do something other than colouring.

    Hope you're a all having a good Sunday and hugs for those that needn't them xxxxx

    I'm in. I'm allergic to lavender and bassically half of boots though so I think bath / cosmetics are off the list... (although Lush is a brand I can use a lot off if anyone wants to go down that route. :ninja:)
    Will put that in when I'm on my laptop! Still need your address and stuff at some point though

    I can't turn my mind off. I'm scared of seeing two of my tutors tomorrow. I really don't want to have to face them but I have to go in. I'm really scared and I don't know what I'm gonna do. I have to be up in 5.5 hours

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Biotene-Dry...ne+mouth+spray

    This stuff is INCREDIBLE. I don't know if you can get it cheaper elsewhere (I get it for $6 at a supermarket) but it works fantastically. My meds make my mouth really dry, so dry that water only wets it for like 5 minutes, and I used to chew gum all the time, but a spray of biotene lasts about an hour which is invaluable.

    Did a little searching and found this one: http://www.boots.com/en/Boots-Expert...-50ml_1215897/ quite a lot cheaper and has pretty good reviews.

    Quiet epically hurt my leg last night at work.
    We have a huge black cigarette box that is behind the counter and i know its there all the time as i put the **** out. Anywayvi always manage to walk into it, but last night it was really busy and i was tired and walked into it with such force i dinted my leg and fell over.
    Now got a bruised knee, ego and acreally sore shin thats all swolen.

    Wasnt my finest of hours.

    Also hada really strange dream last night that was so real. Not had one of them in a while. Think my subconsious is screaming out to me. Ill spoiler for talk of OD in the dream

    Spoiler:

    so basicall i was back in school, which i often dream about if im searching for advice or need support. But we had a compulsary assembly type thing that everyone HAD to attend, but i didnt have to as school had organised like a MH assesmrnt and a psych to come see me because id either ODed or was talking about doing it (i cant remember) so i had to go to that instead.
    And then i woke up but it was so strange. Is my subconsious saying i need to bd honest wirh the drs and try get help?

    I think your conscious should be saying that too.

    Do you have any medication you can take for anxiety?

    I would recommend taking that in the morning if you have it, but for now I'd suggest maybe writing down all the things running through your brain - then hopefully as it's on paper you can tell yourself you will deal with it in the morning and it's all there with nothing in your mind?

    I know what you told me about your tutor and I know that's really scary but you can do it. :hugs: do you perhaps have a friend who can wait for you outside the room?

    No, I only have my regular medication to take on a morning :/

    Thankfully I got a bit of sleep, but I'm exhausted. I only got a few hours, and I'm in 8:45 - 5pm today lol

    Thank you :hugs: I don't really have any friends at college. The only people that know are in my class, but they're not very supportive and only 3 will talk to me

    This might sound weird and way overthought but I've found something of a compromise. I'm going to get an extra couple of hours sleep and then go in for the afternoon at 2pm. That way I miss 2/3 lessons scheduled with the tutor I'm scared of, but I'm still going in. I found a few diazepam tablets that I had left over so as long as there is no reaction I can take some beforehand as well. I'm gonna call my progression coach at 9 and briefly explain and hopefully she understands. At least I don't have to deal with the 2 hour break right in the middle of the day either because that really stresses me out. I'm gonna go for the full day on Wednesday.

    Prsom- oh wow I didn't know you could even get something for this. I've been chewing gum and sucking mints/lollipops. Gum is still useful for tense jaw symptoms but would love to use a spray. So cheap too going to gets some later today when I'm in town. Thank you so much 😊
