    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.
    Is there any chance you could see a different one then? Most places you can ring up or call in and book at reception, they'll at least tell you how if you can't anyway. You're not weak or whiny at all though, and you definitely deserve help- apart from anything else everyone does :hugs: I do think it would be worth trying to go before things get any worse though, trust me when I say the longer you leave it the harder it gets and yeah

    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
    Oh dear! I found the tiredness never went away. (side effects generally do) I had to come off it for that reason. Whilst a decent nights sleep is appreciated, falling asleep during music practise or whilst talking someone, (and no, he doesn't bore me that much!) isn't.

    Aw no, that doesn't sound good! I'm kinda happy on it for the moment, because I was hardly sleeping at all anyway so I do feel a lot more refreshed. I just nod off in classes and stuff a lot more, but if it helps with my back pain and everything else I'm totally willing to accept it at the moment :laugh:

    I was on the lowest dose. My mum takes it at a higher dose and called me a wimp. :lol: Charming!

    Haha I used to get the same with my mum and painkillers :laugh: I'm on 10mg, which I read to be the dose you might give to a 6 year old with a bedwetting issue :laugh:

    Hi everyone! Just thought I'd update you on my situation.

    My brother is being picked up by ambulance in 4-6 hours to go to Sheffield, where he'll be sectioned. He'll be sectioned initially for up to 28 days, but they could choose to extend it (and often do in his case). We're all very very happy, him included. I feel bad to be so happy about him going away, but I can actually feel safe again knowing that he's not here to do anything, and he's being taken care of. This happens every time they mess with his meds out of hospital, so finally they will hopefully settle on something while he's there. Huge relief

    Is it possible to feel addicted to feeling bad and anxious.

    Because I seem to keep finding new ways to torture myself. I've worried about a guy I went on a couple dates with, accommodation, friendships and other random things since I started uni. And today's gripe was worry about my future because I didn't get a first in my first essay.

    It seems like I just can't stay on a good level. I constantly have to have these stupid dips to obsess over.

    That sucks! Could you write a letter for yourself and just them to sign and head it?
    Not sure if they'll agree to that, but it's definitely a good idea if the disability services don't accept the piece of crap they wrote.

    Just had my first session with the retired psychiatrist I'm getting therapy with. He's so nice and really easy to talk to. Hoping that he can help me, he seemed optimistic that he can. He did make some interesting points asking why I'm doing a class I hate and keep failing when there are other options. I didn't have an answer to that. :/

    It's worth a try! When will you know if the current letter has been accepted?

    Not yet, I'm hoping tonight. If not tomorrow night. I think they're just waiting on baseline bloods.

    So sick of my health anxiety, feels like I'm going round and round in circles and pissing off all my friends and family in the process by sharing my worries with them again and again.

    I know but it just angered me because I've waited so long and if I didn't get the letter I wouldn't be seeing anyone (I May not be yet anyway).

    I know I can get 'used to' being psychotic and feel very weird when I'm actually functioning. I wouldn't go as far as to say I induce the psychosis or enjoy it, but I do kind of miss it when it's not there. Not sure if you can relate. Hope you managed to sort your worries out :hugs:

    That must be tough. I'm sorry it's your struggle. I occasionally do get health anxiety but it's just one of GAD manifestations.

    Well there might have been a time when I enjoyed the darkness. That's no longer the case thankfully. But when I have a new thing to worry about, it feels so overwhelming and it's only when I'm given help or reassurance and I'm feeling unmuddled that I realise that it's just my brain torturing me again.

    GAD?

    It's really bad, it's been going on for 5 months now and I'm actually mentally exhausted. It started when I found a lump in my armpit, now the size of the lump has decreased and all the docs I've seen have said I shouldn't worry but I've read way too many horror stories on the internet of people not getting a proper diagnosis and this whole thing had driven me insane.

    It really upsets me, like a lot and it's mostly because I have no control over my irrational thoughts which cause me anxiety. However today I did tell my self to stfu this morning in an aggressive way, and it helped my brain calm down a little -_-
