    Definitely take the tissues. I was almost a complete emotional wreck. And I have never in my life been so attracted to Simon Pegg. And I'm gay. I was just swooning throughout the entire film and today I am mostly wearing skinny black jeans and my doc martens. The film was just so good and tragic and heartbreaking. I'm taking my little sister to see if at the weekend too

    I read for the first time in years yesterday! It's weird how the ability to read/write/do art just disappears for us.
    I thought it was really good... maybe not the likes of Shaun of the Dead but a trilogy is always hard to finish!

    I definitely did not see that coming :erm: I thought at the beginning it was a cancer support group... Took me a bit by surprise. His little monologue about just wanting to be happy had me in tears, the only person in the cinema I think! Been thinking about it a lot this morning in a contemplative way (not bad contemplative) which is strange for me but I think it's just because I didn't see it coming. I thought the first reference (to the car accident) was going to end up talking about a drugs problem because you really don't see the other kind brought up very often IME.

    The end bit with the alien deciding to just go was hilarious though, the whole cinema clapped and laughed at that bit. Very good.

    I had a twang after he wouldn't show his elbow and he got really defensive about it. His monologue broke me and I have a weird thing about seeing bandages so I think that's kinda not helped my brain.

    We did the whole trilogy so we were locked up together for 7 hours so there was lots of cheering and everything at pretty much everything. And each film had a special recorded intro. The first one asked everyone to clap and cheer whenever they heard the f word. It was hysterical.

    Going to see it again tomorrow with my family I think. I think we missed a few bits because of the general noise, the fact it was a midnight showing and we'd been there since 7 and it being so incredibly hot throughout all three films.

    See, I think I was so stuck on the drugs thought process that I thought maybe it would be because of track marks or something... Really didn't occur to me at all.

    Yeah, I find that kind of thing quite hard to look at/think about, it probably didn't help that there was a girl out in the lobby whilst we were waiting who was covered in scars It's so selfish and hypocritical as I'm not one to cover my bad bits up most of the time but it is really odd how it affects those of us who struggle with it. Reinforces in my head that it is definitely an addiction.

    That sounds immense, I would love to go to something like that!

    feeling the lowest I've ever felt
    What's up?

    I'm here if you want to talk, on here or via PM :hugs:.

    (Original post by avhhs)
    :hugs: Things have slowly been getting worse for me and it has been over a year since I felt this impulsive :eek: How is Ramadan going?

    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Oh no I'm really sorry to read that :hugs:. When I was last hovering around, based on your posts, you seemed to be doing better I think?

    Is there a reason why things have been getting worse? What do you mean by impulsive?

    Spoiler:
    Show
    What makes you guess I'm Muslim lol ... because of my ethnicity or have I mentioned it in the past? Ramadan is going ok although I tend to feel super weak and headachy in the evening. A couple of days ago I got a migraine and it was horrid, felt like I was repeatedly being stabbed in the eye!

    It's a weird time for me because it's the only time my family and I do anything remotely religious but then my rebellious brother (who can't fast for health reasons but never used to fast anyway) continues going the pub and staying out all night lol despite my mother asking him so many times to behave this month. My view is he can do what he likes... I kind of admire the freedom he has!

    How's it going for you? Are you fasting?

    I assume you must be quite young right? Because you present yourself as helpless, getting swept along by your own thoughts with no inclination to taking responsibility for them.

    You'll learn in time with the help of your therapist to identify the unhelpful ways you think and perceive the world around you, thus handing you an option to take control over how you feel.
    If 21 counts as young then yeah.

    Im helpless in the middle of a breakdown yes because A) i never know what sets them off B) i dont actually know why im having a breakdown and C) i cry uncontrollably with out knowing when ill stop crying. Sometimes il cry because someone said something nice to me.
    In a breakdown i cant control my legs or my arms, they do what my body says not my brain. I have to be calmed down and then do something to take my mind off it all and something to focus on.

    So yeah you could say i was helpless and getting swept along BUT my body doesnt do what i want in a breakdown, i dont want to not be in control. I guess its hard to explain over the internet

    So yesterday I managed to break my home computer. My brother updated it and ever since then the speakers don't work. He mentioned something about needing to install drivers (no idea what that is haha) so being the technical wizard that I am I thought I would do it.

    Long story short I somehow managed wrongly follow advice I read online and managed to delete something I shouldn't have and when restarting the computer nothing would load. Repair, recover, safe mode were just not loading and starting Windows just got stuck on a black screen.

    Another long story cut short I managed to fix it!!!! Moi, the person who has managed to break her laptop screen twice within 5 months haha.

    I'm feeling proud of my achievement... although as my other brother points out, I broke it in the first place :getmecoat:.

    I have no job and there is no point to anything. I'm here spending money that is unnecessary and feel like everyone is taking advantage of me, the stupid foreigner.

    I have a job for September but what do I do in the meantime? It's not easy to go home and I'm lonely and feel worthless.
    Do you have any hobbies? or even a sport

    I thought I was doing better too, but things have gone rapidly downhill since then. I'm always bored for some reason. By impulsive I mean wanting to do something bad without properly thinking it through, and not caring about the consequences.

    Spoiler:
    Show
    You've mentioned it before :yep: . That's a shame about how you are feeling :hugs:.

    I think you are lucky to be in such a family I'd love to have such a family. I suppose they fast because of a pressure to conform :rolleyes:. My family are always religious anyway so I really hate this month. Don't see why your brother has to behave, for him it is like any other month . Do you think the freedom he has is because he is not religious?

    I'm not fasting. I don't consider myself to be a Muslim either, and as a result I really hate this month so much because everyone else is not bothered to do anything because they are fasting.

    I think that I thought that I had recovered and then to have it creep back to the only thing I've thought about for over a week. I even went to my nan's earlier in the week without my sleeves on (I'm still completely recovered for over a year SH-wise) and she doesn't know and I could feel her looking at me. I forget that it's even a thing sometimes.

    And I'm recovering from various other stuff that came up in the film so the whole thing felt a little bit too much along the lines of "look how brilliant all this bad stuff is!" even though the whole film was about how dreadful his life because of his addictions. I know that it was my brain making it feel like that - not the film but it's scary that I can see those things and want them all over again.

    If it's any consolation, yours truly may or may not have deleted Internet Explorer off her laptop entirely upon arriving at uni. First conversation with my to-be tutorial partner was "hello, I'm TLG. I seem to have deleted the Internet. I don't suppose you're any good with computers?" or something like that.

    Wasn't the best first impression I've ever given

    Hey thanks, that seems a fair price, everywhere i had previously looked has been around 8-12 quid.

    Any idea if it works or not?
