    Hello all! It's been a really long time since I've posted in here but things are getting bad again so I thought I'd ask for some advice. I've got a lot to ask so any responses are much appreciated

    Basically my anxiety is getting bad again. It started about two years ago, and I had a few CBT sessions. My counsellor suggested that I may have depression in addition to my anxiety problems, which I agreed with as I was in a really bad place. I told my mum about it and she went into complete denial, and took me out of CBT. I didn't want to do it but I wasn't brave enough to stand up for myself. (I was 16 at the time so she had the authority really)
    Fast forward two years and I'm feeling like I'm drowning again. Something needs to be done. So, few questions:

    1) if I go back to the doctor and get referred to some kind of service, will there be correspondence via post? It's easier if my family don't know about this for the time being, and if I have suspicious post I'm going to get awkward questions.

    2) I'm also applying to uni this year. Would a diagnosis of anything be beneficial/recommended? I'm not sure what support, if any, I could get. Obviously I might not get a diagnosis, but I think it's worth finding out.

    Thanks for reading the essay

    1) Nope, not necessarily at all. You might not even have correspondence but if you do, you can ask for it to be emailed to you.
    2) I would say that it might be recommended, but not necessary at all. Others on here might disagree and say that 'they can prepare for you and put things in place' but really nothing happens until you actually get there, in my experience. Certainly at my uni, anyway, regardless of whether you have a diagnosis or not, you go through the same process in order to get proper support as everyone else.

    I know they mean well but those Barclay's lifeskills advert are describing everything I would do and making me feel like ****.

    iv seen a couple of them adverts, and i think there a waste of time. iv met MANY young people who are very similar to what they describe, but they get jobs and everything.

    remember your at uni, youv done amazing to get to uni, youv got life expreience FROM uni, please dont let it get to you.

    Sorry to hear you're feeling unwell again I'm pretty sure you could ask your GP surgery not to mail anything to your home. You can ask them about it at reception or by phoning up, I'd have thought :yes:

    As for uni stuff, it does vary from uni to uni but it's good to get hold of a DSA form early, as the application approval and then assessment and then assessment approving can take a little bit of time and the longer you delay applying, the longer it may take for you to get help. There are lots of ways in which your uni could try and help you, depending on what your diagnosis ends up being and what assistance you might feel you may need

    I am though, I cannot tolerate my own fatness any more. woken up this morning and it literally feels like someone is gripping my heart, feel in so much despair. and I remember when I was heavily restricting and purging, that was the only time my mood improved a bit and right now I literally would do anything to take this away right now. :cry: but also I feel really impulsive and want to eat everything. ****ing horrible but I know I need something to take this away cause its unbearable and its gripping my heart

    hun, i know, i understand how you feel, you feel so awful and i wish i could come over and wrap you in a fluffy blanket and take all responsibilities and scary thoughts away from you :hugs: you are not all those horrible things you say to yourself, not one bit. your body is amazing, its stuck by you all these years and its still going. restriction and purging may feel good now, but they're all just temporary solutions to the problem.

    thanks. I didn't even end up doing it cause I am so so weak. I ending up binging a lot and then didn't even have energy/motivation to purge which meant I had to sit with that horrible feeling and then I hurt myself. which makes me weak and silly on all counts. I am just a waste of everything, honestly

    Its hard, when someone verbalises what you're already convinced everyone else thinks, but doesn't want to say. :cry2:

    I know it is but you mustn't think that that's what we all think about you. Anyone who thinks you're vaguely bigger than you should be (including that idiot psychiatrist) needs their head tested :mad:
