    Have you tried all of the sleep hygiene techniques?

    Could you go see your GP? You might get prescribed something (I love temazepam). Are you under a lot of stress or withdrawing from something? What's going through your head as you lie there? (if that's private don't worry about answering)

    I finally got the letter I need for exam arrangements. Only took 5 weeks. However, it's total ****, I'm 99% sure the uni won't accept it. They haven't given any information other than that I am seeing a psychiatrist and made some vague statement about "needing alternative time". WTF does that even mean??? All I wanted was for them to say my meds make me drowsy in the morning so I'd like to do exams in the afternoon. Is that really so hard? :banghead: I feel so pissed off. :mad:

    That sucks! Could you write a letter for yourself and just them to sign and head it?

    Wow that's wow I dont know what to say! Im shocked!
    Please tell someone asap! This is not right.
    He sounds extremely dangerous in his current state! I think the doctors he saw need to be sacked asap! Wow, hope you're ok
    Yeah :/ Unfortunately, there's not much we can do. I've told college and safeguarding, social services know, I talked to my GP about it, two different hospitals know, all of his mental health team knows, the police know etc etc. No one can do anything, because this doctor just keeps blocking everything. He is the voice for CAMHS in this situation, and with CAMHS saying 'there's nothing wrong with him he's just a normal 17 year old boy', there's nothing anyone can do. I think his regular doctor is back next week, so we might thankfully be looking at a section again :hugs: I'm okay now. Nothing kicked off last night, thankfully, but he's refusing to go to school or anything and it's just like walking on eggshells really because we're too afraid to upset him. Hopefully it's sorted soon :moon: :hugs:

    ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

    I saw the doctor at 8:20 this morning and unfortunately there was nothing he could do with regard to my current situation, which I figured would be the case but of course it was worth asking, and he's referred me to the CMHT because he agrees that it can't wait another 6 weeks. The referral will probably take a good few weeks to come through, but he's pushing for it to be quicker. Really glad I have him as a doctor. I was really worried when my old one left, because of the 4 doctors at the surgery he was the one I saw for everything because 2 of them were really unsupportive with everything and wouldn't listen, and I hadn't seen much of the last one (the one I see now). When I found out he was leaving, I tried to find out which surgery he was going to in case I could move with him, but later found out he was retiring. Thankfully, I've found another really supportive one. It's gonna be really upsetting to have to leave for uni and find a new surgery, tbh.

    I had to get a good couple of inches chopped off my hair at my hairdressers appointment there now. For the past few weeks my hair has been woeful; I run my fingers through it and so much comes out in my hand, and my hair bobbles, and the shower. Hairdresser says that it's probably stress related. She's probably right though, I can't stop worrying about everything. My sleep is horrendous, my mood is ****, and uni work is crashing down around me

    This is the second morning I have had Jack Daniels for breakfast to deal with low-mood...it is strange because they call it a depressant...but anyhow...I do not think this is the healthy way of dealing with things. Just a hunch.

    Im just thinking regarding this super santa if its a good idea. Some people can be dicks just saying....
    Sorry, knew there was someone I meant to reply to! There is an element of risk in it but we'll try and minimise it if we can, and hopefully the potential positives outweigh the negatives! If you have any ideas on it or whatever feel free to PM me but yeah, it's worked in the past and it's up to people if they want to or not. Hopefully be really good

    It's really not a good thing to do if you can help it- you might feel like it helps, in the long run it really won't though and very likely to cause more problems than you feel it solves. Have you tried speaking to your GP about what's going on?



    :hugs: anyone that needs them, especially chelseadagg3r and Airmed hope hospital's not too bad and clozapine helps again Noodlzzz

    I'm okay on the amitriptyline as long as I take it a couple of hours before I want to sleep and take those couple of hours easy, and then I don't let myself stop for too long during the day. Well of course with everything with my brother, I can't really go out anywhere unless he comes with, and he won't, so I'm stuck home doing nothing. I'm so so so tired :laugh: I can see myself just sleeping through the next few weeks

    My Gp wont do sh*t and I can't even remember how to go about gettig a quick appointment (at uni). GP wont care about non-issues like mine. Being a whiny piece of sh*t is not a mental helath issue, I am just weak and deserve to suffer for it.

    Does anyone here watch youtubers who talk about their MH.

    I've started listening to mytoecold (Drew Monson) who talks about his depression and comfort eating and it's so nice listening to someone else who feels the same way.

    Zoella often talks about her anxiety and panic attacks
    Doddle Oddle/Doddle Vloggle (Dodie Clark) often talks about her current mood struggles and journey to understand her brain. Thoughs not uploaded much on youtube recently but lots on her twitter and snapchat.

    I find Johnny Bejamin's youtube videos really helpful as a fellow psychosis sufferer.
