    I know why I don't really have many friends, its because i'm too harsh on people, when they do something I deem as wrong (even if it isn't) I often get quite annoyed and who would want to be friends with someone who is very critical? I think I am quite harsh because I don't have many people to talk to and so rely on those few people to be good friends and not annoy me all the time, although they fail at that I don't think I am always wrong and people genuinely do piss me off, but I need to find a balance.

    Somehow I need to figure out a way to be less harsh on people and not think the worst of them. This will only happen if people give me a reason to think good of them, though.

    We all need reminders once in a while.

    Ok, me. Yeah, I'm done. I'm so fed up of feeling horrible, tired and useless. I had a breakdown yesterday in school, was sent home at 10.30am. I had an emergency doctors appointment and they've taken me off the sertraline and I'm finding out my new antidepressant on Thursday. I'm freaking out about exams. I'm feeling very sick. I nearly fainted a few hours ago in the supermarket after eating because I'm making myself eat even though I'm not hungry. I feel like tonight I will have proper insomnia and I have a class dinner tomorrow evening and I'm freaking out and don't want to go and I can't get out of it.
    Damn, that sounds like you have a hell of a lot going on, sorry to hear that. :console:

    It took me 9 antidepressants before I found one that worked for me, so I know how frustrating it can be changing them around. But hopefully this will be the one that helps you.

    Could you try eating high calorie things just so you're getting enough calories even when you're not feeling hungry?

    Good luck with the class dinner (that sounds horrendous!). Do you have any friends you can attach yourself to while you're there?

    I'm just so tired. I just hate the insomnia. And eating is such a struggle. It sometimes makes me feel worse.
    I have one serious friend in the class and he is dreading it as much as me.

    Have you considered asking for mirtazapine (unless you've already tried it)? It can help with both sleeping and appetite.

    At least you have each other I guess, although I know that's still not great. Hope it goes better than you expect.

    I'm feeling incredibly fatigued, it's unreal.
    I often hesitate to tell people how I feel, because I think I fear that people will judge me for it. The most common response from a family member is "What have you got to be depressed/stressed about" with little awareness of how complex such an emotion is. It shocks me how my family shrugs off what I say to them about how I feel sometimes.
    Just think it's one of those days.

    It sucks that your family lack any understanding for mental health :console: You're one of many who have to suffer this, sad as it is. I know there are others here who have the same problem.

    Are any of your friends understanding and supportive? :hugs:

    Meh. I try not to depend on the understanding of others too much.

    I dont have any friends. Last friend I had I now only see about twice a year.

    Just want to curl up in bed. Came back to room from the library to bring out some stuff and eat only to read an email regarding accommodation for next year and ending up stressed out and worrying about which room I will be able to get since we get to choose tomorrow and I haven't managed to print anything or eat yet and I supposed to be meeting a friend and getting some work done since she is having MH issues at the minute and it's all getting to me a bit.
    Might see if I can see my tutor about it but a lot of it is just stress about exams and there's not really much he can do about that.
