    Lovely, lovely! It's nice and bright here, too - a pity I'm stuck inside. I'll be out for most of the day on Sunday, though.

    May I ask, are you expected to eat when you're out? I'm expected to have a 100-calorie "afternoon snack", leaving after lunch and getting back before dinner, but I usually just drink a cappuccino - Starbucks's and Costa's add up to the right amount, and make me feel less guilty, dirty, and degraded than most eating.

    Possibly triggering re blood tests

    Spoiler:
    Show
    Just gave the first lot of blood for my glucose test this morning. Cos I had to starve the nurse couldn't get any blood so the needle was in there for ages and I felt so woozy. I'm feeling really woozy again now. Got to sit in the waiting room for 2 hours with loads of other people. I'm so glad my bf is here. Might have to get him to tell nurses how dizzy I feel cos they said if I did I could go in a room on my own. I don't know why I'm typing this instead of telling them... My hands are numb. I'm just scared of being carried out and all these people in here staring at me. Gonna suck it up and ask my bf to tell them cos I feel like I'm about to cry

    I sympathise. When I was first in the general hospital, I wasn't eating, and they tried all sorts of things to take blood from me, from an infrared scanner for veins, to putting my hands in a basin of warm water. I ended up with an extra cannula specifically for taking blood... which didn't work. Even today, I have trouble giving blood for tests.

    I've run out of propranolol and I have an exam in less than two hours. I'm trying very hard to avoid a panic attack... I guess at least the uni has put exam stuff in place so if I have a panic attack in the exam something something I don't remember.


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    I find that I'm more likely to have a panic attack if I expect to have one. It's very difficult, when they're on your mind, but my advice would be to try not to think of panic attacks. I know it sounds insipid, but it's all I can say.

    I think a few people on this thread dont bother with FB anymore because its too triggering, and i kinda feel it is for me too. So you're definately not alone :hugs:

    For me it serves as a constant reminder that i haven't been in a relationship for around 5 years now. It makes me feel terrible that seeing other peoples happiness makes me depressed, but i can't help it.
    Thanks, it means a lot to me that I'm not alone. I know what you mean, I see other people taking pictures with their friends and having fun and it makes me feel awful. I might just get rid of it, I think it does a lot more harm than good anyway.

    I'm like that too a lot of the time :sad: I know it isn't good to think like that but I can't stop myself :hugs:
    Thank you! :hugs: It's nice to feel like I'm not alone.



    Today I'm feeling nervous because I'm going to work again tomorrow, it's only my second shift back after being signed off for almost 6 months, so... :<

    Feel so awful. Got an exam tomorrow and was meant to go in for revision. Only got about 2 hours sleep so didn't go in and now my mum's having a go at me.

    I'm gonna fail the exam and no one in this house cares about how I feel

    I should be used to it by now. I have had to do blood tests all my life but I've never had to fast for one before. It felt horrible being in the waiting room but they said it is perfectly normal for women to feel faint after a glucose test because pregnancy drains you so much. When they had to do the 2nd test I managed to hold it together enough to let her take the blood but had to give my right arm which is rubbish for veins and that scared me a lot. Still feel a bit queasy but at least I can eat now.

    Does anyone else constantly wish they had a more 'normal' life? Literally every time I go on facebook I feel awful because everyone else has friends and hobbies and is successful and things. I don't know, probably a bit tired / hormonal but I just feel really upset this evening.
    I get like this a lot so I feel your pain. It's bad at the moment for me because graduation and "I passed my exams and am en route to *enter success here*" statuses are starting which always set me off so much

    Yeah, mine's all full of people graduating and doing exams and getting accepted onto postgrad places. Always a surefire way to ruin my day.



    I've finally received my letter from my CPN for my University accommodation! I've sent it off now so hopefully I'll hear back soon about whether I've been accepted and whether my gerbil can come with me. I'm feeling quite nervous about it but also quite good because if it works out then next year will be a LOT less stressful.

    I've also started looking at Ocado and I'm now feeling much better about the idea of living on campus next year. I'm weird when it comes to food shopping and the big supermarkets near campus made me really anxious last year, so I was a bit worried about it. Now I'm happy that I'll be able to order all my food online. Saves me time too!

    Haha I know! Thankfully I didn't have one. I also now know how the whole DSO exams thing works - I can take breaks when I need to and the time will get added back on. I think that just knowing that I can do that helped me avoid a panic attack.

    It seems that feeling horrible, depressed and hopeless increases proportionately with the closeness of my exams

    It's really making me tired....I mean, studying for the past days has been fine, and I've pretty much followed my schedule, but whenever it crosses my mind that my exam is after tomorrow, I start to get into a horrible panic, and feel so desperate and scared. And there are times when I even just start crying. The tension I keep on feeling with the dawning of the exam just hinders me really but the problem is that I can't help it no matter what I try doing.

    When I've still got time before an exam, I just try to keep calm and get through studying by forcing myself to imagine that I'm living just another normal uni day and that I've just got a little quiz coming up or something (since I've managed to get rid of the horrible fear and panic I used to get out of quizzes as well *_*) so that makes studying a bit less of a nausea, but that just doesn't work one or two days before the exam, so I turn into a horrible, under-performing mess It's just tiring, very tiring
