    I'm feeling anxious and tired. Not that I've been doing anything today really, I've just been browsing TSR and reading some application information about Cambridge. I've been trying to find some books to read, too. I tried reading one I found on the shelves of my bookcase, but the language was really off-putting; complicated and "fancy". I just want some easiliy understood philosophy books. Maybe that's too much to ask for. *bummed*

    Sounds like you'd really enjoy Alain de Botton's publications.

    Have a look at 'The Spiritual Teachings of Seneca'. Someone gave me a second hand copy that I've been reading this summer - really engaging little read.

    That's good to hear! although not to hear about your dream! It must have been scary, I have had a few flashes of some sort of something like that and it is horrible. Yeah, I have been feeling quite good for the last week or so. Just want it to carry on for as long as possible haha.

    Yeah, I have never studied business before but did do Economics at A-level and didn't really enjoy it :lol: can I ask why Psychology didn't work out for you? I also really want to do Psychology at uni I'm sure Business isn't too bad, but at times probably can be a bit boring (like everything in life haha).

    Temporarily is the key word there. Wish it would be for much longer, at times.

    That's nice of you Have only got two exams left (one of which is tomorrow) so should hopefully be okay until exams finish! but thank you I am always here if you ever need to talk or anything too!

    Yeah, using others to inspire or even the internet can be really good! The only problem (I find) with the internet is that you can then go and search the completely wrong thing and make yourself feel worse. It can be really quickly too.

    I just tend to not really talk about depression with my parents that much, because you know that there is a chance they will just make you feel worse and it isn't worth it. We just have to be extra careful with the things we watch, I guess. I sometimes can't stop myself to watch a documentary about suicide etc and I think that is because I find it interesting, more than anything. I have even asked one of my friends if I should watch it or not lol. Definitely true. We just have to ask the right people at the right time, which can be very hard.
    :hugs:
    Alrighty, I'm feeling much better today Here's my reply - sorry it was so late but I'm thankful you understood!

    I'm happy you've been feeling good for the past few days! Positively is essential Haha, having dreams such as those - the proper dark and deep ones, are really quite frightening.. in the dreams I usually go through with the act and then see the aftermath which is even more distressing

    Aha You ain't an Economics fan then?! Ooh go for Psychology! Well, the reason was that the competition was really quite high so I had received an offer to do Psychology at several universities but I missed the offer by 2 grades and they still wouldn't let me in :cry2: So I was very upset but opted to do Business because that was the only thing there that a) had a relatively low entry requirement and b) it was a local uni. Aha oh man, Business is not too bad at all; I've got 4 out 8 modules at a 2.1 level - surprising considering I've never touched the subject I once swore I'd never ever do :lol:

    Awh man, now me being a numpty, I didn't get to wish you good luck because that's kinda when the depressive episode happened But hope it went well! Thank you so much; you're really caring

    Oh yes absolutely! Sometimes I can search up the totally wrong things or watch a saddening TV episode or video online and that's it - I'm gone (into depression mode) :/

    You know what? I think the same exact thing And also about watching certain videos online; I've done that In fact I got so interested in this particular documentary about the Suicide Forest in Japan after watching a Buzzfeed video on the scariest places on the planet.. I dunno why I found it so intriguing, god I'm so weird But it was the thought of the history behind The Suicide Forest that got me going. Oh yes, so true. But you'll notice that not many people understand and often think it's due to hormones or for a female like me, premenstrual symptoms :facepalm:Not many people understand that you can get depressed WITHOUT a reason I explained to my mum that I was depressed for no reason yesterday and she came back with "In this world, you cannot have 'no reason' for anything, there's got to be something behind the problem'.. true, but it's not always like that!

    Apparently, being social is good but all it does is highlight the times when i'm alone and make them seem even worse

    Tired but not willing to sleep. Also, slightly bored with life and the feeling of loneliness. Not that loneliness is ever fun, only that this is so common I'm actually finding it tedious haha.
