    I'll do that Yep.

    thanks again



    Thanks. I'm 21.



    Thanks very much . I really don't want to be on medication TBH, I might ask for CBT. How long will I have to wait for before seeing a counsellor or something?



    Thanks . It's good to know about the questionnaire beforehand, thank you. Do I have much choice as to what I get offered? Again I don't want to go on medication. It is very serious though.
    Ofcourse you have a choice! Unless your on a section (which is unlikely unless your a serious risk to yourself or others) then you get a say in your treatment. The drs may suggest one way is better, but ultimately its your choice.

    Regarding waiting list, unfortunately MH services are a postcode lottery and some areas you may get counselling in a matter of weeks, others it may be months. So no one can actually say you will be waiting X long.

    Okayish - I had an awful day yesterday because this stupid, rude idiot was bothering me, but I'm feeling much better now (mainly because my Young Enterprise group just won the Regional Young Enterprise Competition today! )

    I'm still feeling kinda annoyed from yesterday's incident with the idiot, but I'm getting over it

    I have my Biology practical retake tomorrow so I'm worried about that ><

    How are you?
    Ohh, congratulations on the Young Enterprise! and sorry that you didn't have a great day yesterday, but at least you had some good news too!

    Had a decent day myself, but starting feeling a bit low recently so watched some Netflix for a bit, and now gonna watch some more

    What do you mean by "serious risk"? Don't want to go into too much detail but it has been severe at times. The last thing I want is to lose my rights as an adult or something, esp. because my family is abusive and controlling.

    Thanks. Is there anywhere I can go before getting treatment/during the wait?

    Basically suicide really, though if you havnt already read the OP on the rules on talking about suicide and self harm if your at risk.

    You can contact charities that offer the support or counselling, if your at uni you can access counselling there.

    Spent about 3 or 4 hours doing a piece of revision which should have only taken like an hour or so. Still, guess it's good I got it done.
    Well done That's really good - am exactly the same with taking ages over small stuff, but can be really difficult to concentrate - so try not to be hard on yourself about it? :hugs:

    idk if i'm even ready for uni. i'm so excited for the moving out part and meeting new people but i'm unsure about my course and the fact that i'm unsure now before even starting i feel is a bad sign, but I do enjoy the subject its just my own self-doubt thats dragging me down. im on my final major project on my btec college course rn which is feel is closer to uni level work and im having a horrible time doing it, ive spent too many nights crying and hurting myself stressing out that im so far behind. if im like this now what will i be like at uni?
    i doubt my ability despite my tutors telling me im good and getting offers from some great unis, i feel like the whole thing is a fluke
    idk how to just get on with it, because im currently too scared to do work because i think itll be awful and then it makes me further behind
    :hugs: Don't think it's a bad sign, think it's sort of difficult working out how Uni'll be, I know people who've been feeling bad before who've loved it, and then myself who was quite set on it and now isn't enjoying it quite as much (though Uni part definitely good, sort of/as you say moving out and stuff)
    Sorry, maybe that doesn't help
    I'm sure your tutors are right :yep: :hugs:
    In the exact same fear about being behind => too scared to do stuff => more behind loop, and think it's a difficult one/lots of people struggling with it, but :hugs:
    Also think it's common to be unsure about uni-ness, but I think just have to try it and see? Hope you're okay though! (and hi! Not sure I've spoken to you before )

    Got a 65 in the coursework test I thought I had failed! :eek: My average (not weighted, but whatever) is still 70 so I'm happy with that.
    Well done! :woo: PRSOM :sad:

    Finally got a job interview! Its for part time work at my local B&Q so I can still do my voluntary work. Nervous already! Never been to a job interview before :eek:
    Congrats! Though you were Odd Socks for a second there/was confused because I thought you had a job already (You are both scots in socks :eek: :teehee: anyway... :getmecoat: )
    Good luck for the interview! Sorry about nerves :console:

    :grouphugs: for all Sorry I'm not offering to talk to anyone here. Feeling a bit fragile post-Edinburgh. I was well for the trip but I think I might still be in a psychotic episode :nopity:
    :hugs:
    I want to go to scotland :eek:
    Hope you're not :jumphug: but :console:

    --------------------------------------


    Been to DofE, was good/better than I thought, definitely! I'd kinda decided to see how today went/if it wasn't horrible to not swap, so decided I won't. I mean I think I'd still prefer it if I'd started off in the other group maybe/think I'd get on well with more of them, but this group is good/everyone's friendly, plus the person I do know/got on well with is so friendly and nice, is really comforting sort of to know they'll be in the same group/to have someone there who's really nice!

    Semi-disappointed to not be in the other group, sort of (in that the current group isn't maybe the group I'd choose), but yeah, am glad this one'll be nice too, and I didn't feel completely isolated or anything *ramble* (and thanks to everyone being so nice about all this worrying about this I've been doing the past week :hide: )

    Also meeting went okay, though only 2-3 people turned up which was a shame :/ forgot to send out an email to remind everyone yesterday

    Got some nice food from tesco, and even cooked (sausages, potato waffles and peas ) and have washed up, so was feeling good, but now suddenly low. But oh well :/

    Hope everyone's okay :hugs:

    How have you been today? :hugs: Sorry I'm so rubbish at replying on here recently.

    ---------------

    Pretty successful day :yep: Handed 2 assignments in and revised a fair bit.
    Food
    Spoiler:
    Show

    Won a box of Celebrations and a bag of Haribo in 2 different lectures today for winning the end of module quizzes (there's about 200 people in each module, uber nerd I know :mmm: ). I just poured the Celebrations out on the table and everybody around me helped themselves but I ate some too, was quite proud of myself considering eating at uni has been a massive no for me since about November.

    Really really hope this goodness lasts.

    --------------

    feeling really low because something triggered me, but getting super dissociated (sort of getting tired of fighting to stay grounded - guess that's me being lazy). maybe i should go and sleep. or try to - stupid nightmares/hope my flatmates aren't loud all night, if not i'll probably go and say something. :shakecane: well. providing i'm not super dissociated like last night :argh: (was finding it difficult to walk/do anything, don't remember much of anything :facepalm:). anyway. don't know really. i'm triggered and this dissociation is difficult to deal with. hopefully sleep works :dontknow: probably won't :lol:

    :hugs: to those who want/need them. sorry i'm so useless. :sad:

    Hey guys :hugs: to everyone

    Spoiler:

    Feeling really rubbish right now - and I can see the strain its putting on my family when I go from pretty good days to this. I'm finding it really hard to remember other moods when talking to people so everyone has different ideas of where I'm at which makes me feel like I'm lying to them. CMHT care coordinator thinks I'm doing well and I don't know if the meetings with him are even helping but I'm too scared to ask about ending/other options. Doctor increased meds again and put me on a stupid pattern thats so hard to remember. My sleeping pattern is messed up and I cant concentrate and dont want to do anything except sleep and I'm soooo fed up of not knowing whats depression syptoms, medication side effects or what.

    I'm supposed to be going back to university next year and I'm really worried about that - the situation at home is so different and I dont know how well Ill cope looking after myself again. Really dont want another year out or to be where I was at the beginning of this year. I'm going to apply for DSA but I'm scared people will say Im not bad enough.

    Got a meeting with my care coordinator tomorrow and i really dont want to go but I cant cancel again but I dont want to talk to him and tell him that i havent done stuff hes suggested and that Im not doing well again. He'll ask me why and I dont know.

    Just wish people would stop caring what i did and then I could just stay in bed and not feel guilty about all the things they want me to be doing to get better.
