    My attendance is already 86% for having 3 days off due to me having a chest infection and being sick :/
    if i take days off my work will be overdue then i will get emails from my lecturers and then they will be threatening to throw me off the course and it just goes on on as you can tell the work load is so much sometimes but i suppose thats what i get for choosing Level 3 early years diploma
    i just get stressed and anxious and i have a diagnoses of autism
    What's made you feel like poop this evening ?
    Its friday tomorrow then the weekdend, so dont worry about it too much.

    Its very difficult for schools/colleges to kick people out, trust me i tried my bloomin hardest when i was younger!!
    Do you get any extra support?

    Im back on my meds after hoping to start 2017 med free, but things started going down hill, and my new drs doing me a MH referal, last time that happened i ended up on antipsychotics!
    And im on day 3 of a period from hell as i have polycystic ovaries and not naturally had a period in 10 months.
    And to top if off my nephew went to his dads instead of me having him, which im a lil bit upset about cos i love seeing him, but j know he needs to spend time with his dad

    Hello pals, I'm more of a lurker here but I need your advice. I'm applying to university during these upcoming months and I wanted to ask - should I mention my depression anywhere besides the little space for disabilities on the UCAS application? Like should my referee mention it, should I briefly mention it in my personal statement? My mental health struggles have definitely impacted my grades (they're okay ish enough to get into a half decent uni I guess. hopefully). I'm really clueless here, so any help would be dearly appreciated! I figured you guys ought to know something about this.

    i get extra support in my maths because i asked for it like that in september because at the end of year 11 i wasnt really having that much support and i dont want loads of support because i don't want to become dependent on it

    Peroids are the worst straight up i get the most painful cramps i cant even walk sometimes

    You'll see him soon he has to spend time with everyone x

    If your school can verify your depression independent of you (i.e. you have supporting evidence form a dr and have passed this on to them) and your depression impacted on your grades, then imho it should def be mentioned briefly in your reference. I wouldn't draw attention to it in your PS -it's so hard to fit in everything as it is without losing an extra line or two :eek:

    I have some good news for once, due to my anxiety issues and problems with neighbours and the house in need of repair I have been offered a council flat.

    Shocked it only took about 6 weeks! Only thing I am anxious about now is I don't have a move in date, and its close to Christmas and I may have to buy own carpet and blinds (have all the rest of furniture)

    Yeyyyy thats super quick!
    Try not to worry too much about stuff, i moved into my flat in july and still only have a poorly fitted carpet in my bedroom nowhere else (its one a collegue of my mums happened to not need anymore)
    And my curtains are just hooked up to my bedroom windows using like cup holder hooks, they arnt permenant sollutions but they work until i can get money to do my flat up.

    :hugs: Please make sure you're safe. You deserve it as much as anyone else, and you work harder and through more than most as well. Is your wife around, or anyone else you can talk to? Maybe you can ring one of your team? I'm not too sure who you're involved with, I'm sorry. Honestly, you're still pushing and I think you did really well on that test as well so congrats with that. That's something to be proud of. The way you still had time for me the other night as well and how supportive you were was amazing. You're a real credit to yourself. Don't let the voices control you :console:
    Thank you Chelsea. I'm sort of safe, My wife is at home but I was planning on taking a bath but well...it's a bathroom so there are certain things there. So maybe I'll skip the bath. I don't want to or think I will do anything, I just am getting to the end of my tether with these ****ing voices. They've ruined all my dreams and now I'm lost with what I want/can do. I have no direction. My wife keeps saying that if I fail my anatomy class it's no big deal because I can do it again in the spring. But really, I don't want to take it 4 times and I don't know how to tell her that. Everytime I even hint at it she gets annoyed and questions me about what I can do other than work in mcdonald's and I have no answer to that. :sad:

    No college for you tomorrow, right? (and no problem the other night

    Hugs to you tonight saber <3 i know i haven't experienced this but i know how it makes you feel when someone is speaking about you meaningfully its horrible
    Don't let them voices control you
    Speak to your wife or someone close to you who is supportive to you <3
    My wife isn't the best person to speak to about them. She keeps telling me I should be used to them by now and I'm stupid for hiding and crying as she doesn't think they're real. I went to the uni counseling service for someone to talk to and she said she was in over her head so referred me to this other non-university connected guy who I saw today and he seems great but otherwise I'm pretty low on actual RL support.

    So I'm currently inaptient and just did a recovery group where we given an outline drawing of a person and asked to reflect on ourselves and our strengths.

    One person coloured the person in blue. One person said they felt ok to every question and I wrote that I am a motivated person who doesn't give up despite advercity, which is why I'm currently writing essays for my masters program and applying for PhDs from hospital. I really don't fit in here

    Edit: oh and one guy just drew a penis on his :rofl:

    Anyone got any experience with schema therapy? Just back from visiting the CPN and she said she thinks that will be the type of intensive therapy I get after I finish my work with her.

    Sorry I've replied so late. I hope you ended up sleeping okay :hugs: If you don't want to take it a 4th time, you don't have to. You've still got a decent amount of time to figure things out, so don't feel too rushed. I hope you find some answers Maybe your new guy could be of help?

    Nah, no college today. I'm only in Mon-Wed thankfully

    Don't worry about my sleep; 1000mg of seroquel would probably knock out an elephant.

    That's the bit I'm doubting. I know if I fail my wife is just gonna make me redo it. I'm just not sure that I'm in the correct mental place right now. Though I am getting on a bit in years so I definitely need to work out some kind of plan. But I don't know; the voices have destroyed so much and it seems like there's no paths left.

    And yeah, the guy I'm seeing questioned me quite a lot about uni etc and said it's something we can discuss so I'm hoping I get somewhere with him.

    Ergh...sorry for the ramble.

    I hope stuff got worked out with your brother. That sounds like a really challenging and scary situation to be in. :hugs:

    Haha, that sounds like a lot. At least you slept :laugh:

    I hope the guy you're seeing can help you out a bit with your uni situation. The only thing that helped me when I was in that kind of position was taking a year out before revisiting, which in my experience definitely helped, but we're in different situations so it may well not be an option for you :s

    That sounds good though. I hope he really helps you

    No apology needed. You had all the reason in the world to rant a little :laugh:

    Kinda, I think. Fingers crossed :laugh: He got sectioned yesterday, but is still at home lol. They just got him a bed on a PICU he's been at before, and should be going tonight. Here's hoping they can help!

    Massive hugs :hugs: :hugs: :hugs:

    It's simple biology. I can't ever succeed because I do not have the necessary assets of looks, strength, height, ambition, confidence, etc.
    But I have to keep going because otherwise other people will be sad, to say the least.
