i'm feeling the same as always. on edge. had massive problems with my mum earlier but they seem to have quietened down. meant to be going car shopping and have to tidy my room as well but i feel drained and just want to stay home and vegetate. but if i do that, i'll end up thinking too much and getting down.
look forward to the car hunting!

i've had some crap with my parents too. my mum came up to me yesterday with a bent breadknife and accused me of ruining it, and i don't know anything about it at all. still going on about it. sick of their bickering. ah well, i finally fly outta here tomorrow.

Bread knives gradually bend over time - the only way to avoid it is to swap with someone left handed (or right handed if one is a leftie) every so often, as they bend a different way depending which hand one uses.

More importantly, though, it sucks that you're getting crap from them.

Yay! That's good isn't it? And eurgh, I hate it when you get blamed for things you didn't do Don't worry, she'll forget in time. Or just offer to buy her a new one. They shouldn't be too expensive and it will shut her up.

I'm so annoyed guys I went to the college to apply for the course and I should get an interview next week, however I can't get any financial support whatsoever. And on top of that, the internet says it costs £360, but it costs £650 I'm so upset as I can't afford that. I need some serious financial advice and help and a job and no one wants me :bawling:

Not sure but I don't count as having a disability Such a mess and my family don't care. Mum just tells me to discuss it with her after we've been to the cinema. She doesn't even know what course I've applied for and no doubt she'll get nasty about it all when I tell her.

My joints have started swelling up from stress. They're so painful and then I'll end up unable to do the 101 things I have to do over the next few days and I won't be able to get a job and my family will pick on me and all sorts.

Just want to hibernate and get away from it all.

What course was that? Are there any others you can do?

It can only be a good thing that you're getting out, asking people, applying for things and trying to get on your feet again. You're putting the effort in. That's good. Look at it that way!

Thanks That made me smile. It's an Introduction to Marketing course run by the Chartered Institute of Marketing. It's only part time for 5 hours on a wednesday each week for 12 weeks. Just so gutted about the money. Why does everything have to come down to money?

Bleurgh! That sounds mildly boring if I may say so. They did you a favour by asking you for too much! I suggest, like I have to others on here lately, that you get a job in some kind of social place so you can build up a new friendship group. Not necessarily a good, lifelong job. But one that gets you friends. And from there you'll find out about more opportunities. Does wonders for your self-esteem when going to work becomes a social event.

I'm not too bothered by what the course is. The reasons I chose to do it are...

1. It will give me an insight to something I know nothing about.
2. If I like it, I might consider carrying it on.
3. It's a qualification.
4. It's a short course so if I don't like, I'm not tied into that much.
5. I want to stay in education and keep my brain in gear.

We'll see.

As for the job, no one will employ me I'm volunteering at the Marie Curie shop in town but the people there aren't really the kind of people who socialise. Meh, life does suck at times Just want something in my life to go right for once. Something substantial, not just getting my new car or a 3 day trip to Germany for my Germany. Something that matters. Does that make sense?

Of course it makes sense. You want something that brings long-term stability and happiness. I guess. You just need to know what matters to you. For me at the moment at least it's gaining/rebuilding a big diverse strong group of friends - people I can rely on (and hopefully live with!). On both sides of the Atlantic. Relationships and decent jobs and all that come later. I'm just trying to take it slow.

Ha, everything I say seems to be hopelessly vague and vacuous. I'm in an odd mood. Ah well. If it's of any remote help...

No, it wasn't vague! It made sense And yes, it did help because you summarised my ramble...long-term stability and happiness

As for the friends thing, I'm rubbish at that as I never know what to say to people. I've got my close friends back home but they're never there for me in emergencies or times of difficulty. Don't think I'll ever get a friend like that either

I'm paranoid. I'm thinking about visiting the college today and how I stuck out and now I'm thinking people will pick on me and scratch my new car when I leave it in the car park. Pathetic, I know, but I'm terrified my new car will be ruined

Just found a copy of the letter I wrote Gavin when he moved and didn't get upset or feel stupid by what I put. Not sure whether I should be happy I didn't get upset or feel like a prat for saying what I said. Odd that I don't regret it....yet.

It does - you'd need a letter from your gp, but that's not usually a problem.
