    If you want to talk about anything, feel free to PM me (or here of course).

    I'm at my dad's house with very little internet but it's great to see him, this is the first time in nearly 2 years. But mentally not doing so well, I have a lot of work to do but can't concentrate over the whispers.
    thanks

    That's quite a while, it's good you're getting round to seeing eachother though! Sorry to hear about the voices, not really sure what to suggest to help you concentrate over them... maybe music? Although I know that can sometimes be a distraction from work in itself depending on wha kind of music.

    Definitely asking for a new pyschiatrist. He spent my 15 minute appointment with him (which only happens every 2/3 months) not discussing treatment but instead the recession in Dundee after I told him I would be job hunting this summer.

    Ugh. I'm bloody done. No wonder I'm such a ****ing mess. http://static.tsrfiles.co.uk/images/smilies/cry2.gif Who cares if I'm paranoid and hearing things and sleeping badly? There is only so much my CPN can do with my diagnosis in helping me.
    Sounds pretty annoying that he was waffling on about the recession rather than offering any advice... Maybe change the topic next time if he starts going on about unhelpful stuff or ask him questions about what he recommends?

    And with your CPN try to voice these things and how hopeless you're feeling about what they can do to help I'm sure they'll change their approach.

    He either waffles or doesn't tell me a thing. He's useless. My CPN knows that I think this but there's not much he can do. My treatment plan is meant to come from the pyschiatrist.

    Ah right it's definitely worth being a bit firmer with your psychiatrist next time then make sure you get the care you deserve.

    Today was the last straw. How do teachers think its acceptable to join in with the entire class taking the piss out of me... And then not let me leave when i was basically freaking out... :cry2:

    Hate teacher's like that, they are meant to be the mature professional ones and urgh it just enrages me :/ ik from experience there is nothing anyone can say to make it better but if it gets too bad seriously think about reporting them..

    No point. I only have one lesson left with them now. Ended up walking out of my next lesson because people kept going on about it. I knew it was a bad idea to go in today. :sigh:

    Today's therapy session was the best I've had. I finally spoke up and told her that I haven't seen her nowhere near as regular as I was told by my GP as I should have, that the type of therapy isn't helping and that she may not be the right therapist for me and she agreed with everything I said and is changing what therapy I'll have and I'll be seeing her once a week instead of once a fortnight or more like once every 5 weeks and that if I still don't feel like getting anywhere with her after a couple more sessions, she'll personally see that I get someone else more suited to me.

    Feel like a weight has been lifted! You know I could talk to anyone but I hate confrontation or dealing with people in authority so it was quite a nerve wracking thing to do but I'm glad I got over my fear and done it. Sounds silly but I am quite proud. It was for my health so it had to be done, even if it did take me weeks to do. Just hoping that's me finally on the right path now

    I have been called in for an 'emergency appointment' with my consultant psychiatrist today. I have never met her before. I am anxious that this is code for mental health act assessment :afraid:

    Not feeling well at all. Hope you guys are doing better.

    think i've basically ruined any sort of a future i could have potentially had. idk why i even bothered tbh. thank you though.

    did get some other coursework back and got a 68, so that's good.
    I hope you haven't ruined your future with that exam! I am sure you did better than you thought anyway! :hugs: and congrats for the coursework mark! That's a really good mark

    (Original post by Lizzipth_Floyd)
    Thanks for your reply. I guess finding a purpose and having direction. Currently trying to find some part-time work because I think that might help. Difficult thing is that at the moment even the things I love and am passionate about I'm not getting much enjoyment out of
    I understand what you mean! It is incredibly tough especially when you are really struggling, but stick it out and hopefully the feeling will pass really soon! :hugs: Are you currently at university?

    Am doing a module at university one evening a week. Waiting to see if I have an interview to do an access course starting September. Hoping that might help me feel like I exist for a reason, or something

    Ah okay. Hope you do get accepted onto the access course in September, because that should help you That is still a few months away though but hopefully you find something else that can keep you busy and can just help you in the meantime!

    I went to Glasgow today with my mum, stepdad and Callan for a day out and I did have a great time but holy moly, I am beyond drained now. I don't just feel tired. I feel exhausted physically and mentally and I've turned into a right cow. I'm snapping at Callan for pretty much nothing and not feeling that bad about it which isn't like me. I'd like to think its just tiredness but my panics and OCD especially have been high today and I kept it all in as I didn't want to ruin the run the day so I think I'm in another setback which sucks because I'm not long out of one but with everything that's happened in the last week, I'd be surprised if my OCD and anxiety didn't take a turn for the worst.

    Hoping that watching Top Gear might perk me up a bit
