    Feeling really low. Last day of college and I'm going to a different uni than my bestfriend. I feel sick with regret and now I have an offer to study at Oxford and I feel really overwhelmed. Really anxious, I'm scared and miss her already. I feel so frail
    :hugs:

    I did my undergrad at Ox. I was the only person from my school to go, but I managed to keep most of my secondary school friends and am still best friends with many of them, 9 years after leaving :king1:

    I hope you have a good time at Ox

    Brain is wide awake but my body is tired.

    Let me sleep, I need sleep. I have work and I can't run on hardly any sleep. :cry:
    #1

    Feel so wretched tbh, crying as i write this because feel so alone which has been confirmed by the people around me in real life who just seem to pick me up and drop me as they choose.
    Also feel so hideous i'm so ugly it isn't even funny, honestly hate myself and then i realise why people don't seem to want to be around me, i don't blame them cos i wouldnt either because i'm such a *****.
    Sorry everyone if that seems ungrateful and insulting to people with real issues, just had to rant

    :hugs: I always feel really tired after I do marathon sleeps too. I know sleep can be a great escape but I'd advise trying to cut back a bit and hopefully you'll wake up with more energy.

    Really can't deal with the voices right now. I've taken clonazepam several times a day since Monday. I took it 30minutes ago and the effect is so muted, dunno if I should take a couple more, I'm just so scared of what they're saying and this is the only thing that helps. I'm aware it's extremely addictive but I have about 200 pills of it so taking more is possible.

    They're getting louder and louder and more persuasive and I don't know what to do. I start a summer class in a little over a week. I have no idea how I'll cope with that. I really need to pass; this is my second attempt.

    I tend to either not sleep for days or sleep too much (and wake up a lot in the process). But yeah you're right. Hope you're ok.

    It's a right pain in the ass trying to get up if you're feeling *****y but perhaps try setting an alarm and sticking to it? If you sleep less some nights it might help you get to sleep in those days you're having trouble. I don't know if that'll work, but perhaps worth a go?

    Alarms don't really work as I tend to sleep through them. And I'm not sure it will. Usually when I'm staying up 3 or 4 days in a row it's because I'm too scared to sleep, so I avoid it...I dunno. Which is probably why I end up sleeping for 15+ hours when I do sleep. Plus at the moment I don't really have any motivation to do anything, so I tend to stay in bed a lot (not necessarily even sleeping).

    I hate sleep, but I hate being awake. Sucks.

    Thanks for the advice though.

    Sorry to hear the voices are getting harder to cope with. When do you see your psychiatrist next?

    Hope you feel better soon. Personally if it were me I'd take the clonazepam. If you combine it with your normal meds it should knock you out pretty effectively and allow you to rest.

    Whenever I am in your situation I find the most important thing is to calm down quickly because the stress is what makes it feel 10 times worse. So just try and calm yourself down ASAP.

    I took your advice and took another clonazepam alongside my evening meds. Just gotta hope it helps as yesterday evening was really awful. I'm considering having a beer but that's probably not the best idea. :/ Do you find that your symptoms get worse at night? And yeah I'm trying to calm down; had a hot shower then a cuddle with my spouse but I don't think she gets just how much **** I feel like I'm in.

    I don't know if this will help, but when I've been too scared to sleep in the past I lock my door and pile a load of **** against it so no one would be able to get in without waking me up. Combined with a knife under my pillow, I found it worked pretty well

    I have a psychiatrist appointment on thursday but he's no longer in network for my insurance so probably gonna cancel and go to someone else who is in network. Dunno how long setting that up will take.
