    I feel really bad for feeling this way because the person is quite nice but... When someone reminds you of a *****y time in your life or they are connected to someone who treated you badly and then they say bump into a family member and discuss how you are and say stuff about their life and send their wishes I just feel like...
    Shh don't talk about me, leave me alone please. And I feel bad but it's what I feel the fact their life is a lot better than mine and probably always will be 'adds insult to injury'. But I feel like a weak and *****y person for giving in to these kinds of thoughts/feelings.

    I've been on sertraline for about a year now and I've found that it works really well for me (previously tried citalopram, fluoxetine and St Johns Wort but none of them worked that well for me). I've had no side effects apart from some tummy trouble in the first few weeks (although I have IBS anyway so it may have been related). Feel free to ask me more.
    Sorry missed this! Glad it's helped you so much, yeah does seem a bit ofa trial and error thing. Most of the (non serious) side effects I seem to get anyway but yeah, IBS too


    Speaking of which... Has anyone ever had a really weird burning sensation on sertraline? It started off just in my hands and feet but going to other places now and getting stronger, it's odd. Other than that just felt really dizzy and sick but I'm used to them and knew they were likely, this is really annoying me

    This week has been absolutely awesome!!! It couldn't have gone better!
    My new medication has started to kick in and I'm not noticing any of the side effects that I was having with Citalopram (I'm on Sertraline now)
    The bullying was making me feel really down and depressed and was making my OCD go haywire! My confidence has disappeared too!
    Now I'm really happy, my OCD has calmed down a bit (it's still not great though) and my confidence has soared!
    I felt like sharing this with everyone!
    How I overcame this was by taking a look at myself and figuring out how to fix myself!
    So I went about solving the problems I've been having and my mood was lifted dramatically!
    Sorry if this isn't relevant to the thread at all! I just wanted to share this with people!

    Hey. Would it be OK if I joined? I used to have an old account and use this thread frequently. Recently suffering a major relapse and struggling again.

    I hope you're all doing alright.

    At uni the mental health support is good in my opinion. They have mental health advisors who act kinda like care coordinators within the uni. You can drop in and see them if you need to. There is mentoring support via an external agency and they are very very good. My mentor has been fantastic. My department have been fantastic with mental health support and I've heard the same about other departments in the uni.

    I can't comment on the mental health services as I live in Hounslow and commute to uni. However I have been to A&E in Kingston and the psych team are very professional and one of the best I've come into contact. My friend lives in Kingston and says that services are good, especially EIS (not sure if you are still with them). The trust that Kingston is in is meant to be good.

    Does anyone else feel emotionally and mentally exhausted after meeting up with people? I met my cousin in town this morning and we had a great laugh and I feel comfortable around her as she has panic attack problems too and ever since I left her, I've had panic after panic and on the verge of breaking down because I feel so worn out in every way possible even though I had a great time. Waiting on Callan picking me up in a few mins. Hoping seeing him perks me up a bit.

    Yes, will alert you all once it's up and running I think what we've decided on is that the thread will be locked and there will be themes (so like, this week, the theme will probs be 'relationships', as that is the theme of MHAW 2016). People will submit relevant entries to me via PM and it will be screen by relevant members of the TSR Support Team, for content, etc.

    Once a suitable blog post has been put together on the relevant theme, it will be put up with any necessary trigger warnings by yours truly or the ST. That way we don't have anyone randomly word vomiting and inadvertently triggering others on the thread, and people's contributions can remain anonymous if they wish

    The idea is to make it a multi-contributor thread but to maintain some control over what's posted, for the safety of everyone :yes:
