    Had a fantastic evening yesterday Watched a great film, wrote in diary, and had fun times on chat/with scrabble with MHSS peeps :ahee:
    Today's been more relaxed/slow, but feeling more comfortable with Auntie and people here definitely Not sure what to do tomorrow, might go to cinema or something
    Sounds as though they're going to be having early starts/before 10-11ish (my wake up time), so won't be getting breakfast/getting in their way or anything
    That's really great! I enjoyed the scrabble/chat too! :ahee: I made a big mistake not bringing my diary with me on holiday and now I have to subject you guys to my ranting. I didn't realise how useful it is for destressing until I didn't have it.

    Seeing a new doctor tomorrow, kinda scared. I need to ask about a letter for mitigating circumstances, something to help with anxiety, and stuff for my eczema.

    Boring update: I finally got changed into my pyjamas and am in my bed. Plus while changing I noticed that my weight loss efforts have been working and so I am feeling a bit better.

    Yeah :sadnod: I have the worst sleeping pattern, it's a discipline problem, I need someone to enforce a sleeping schedule on me haha

    I'm ok I guess, issues with a supposed 'friend' but I'm hoping it'll end with us not being friends any more

    Not up to much, just finished watching a series of a tv show and now I'm trying and failing to sleep haha. Got to be up by half 8 tomorrow so need to get to sleep at some point

    What about you?

    Thanks for the hugs, I don't blame you not knowing what to say, I don't know either

    Glad to hear you had fun with the chatting and scrabble yesterday, I enjoyed it too.

    What you planning on seeing at the cinema?

    I am on holiday but I will when I get back. I am sick of this and clearly my efforts at "fixing myself" have so far been not as effective as I had hoped - I've only managed to get worse over the years and there is a limit to how much self-help you can do. I am so crap at asking for help though and that is what got me in such a mess.
    Good luck with talking to your doctor. I know it's really difficult to take that first step of talking to a doctor but if you've felt this way for a long time it's probably not just going to disappear on its own. If you're unsure what to mention you could try asking people here what's important - I'm sure many of us would be able to help clarify things for you.

    Has any non-medication stuff worked for you at all in the past? What with it being 8 years, i guess you've tried more or less everything. Have any of the things you've tried attempted to confront the voices, as opposed to making them go away? I may be speaking out my arse here, just trying to be helpful, somehow.

    ------

    Had the first bath for a long time, don't have one at my normal place but at my mum's currently. It was so hot i thought i was gonna fall asleep/pass out! :fan: Hands were shaky and legs were giddy when i got out x] So worth it though.

    Yes I do shower on a regular basis, i'm not that dirty A bath is a luxury for me.
    Nah, you're not talking out of your ass I think it's definitely worth trying as much as possible. I'm currently getting CBT but it's more for anxiety than getting the voices to shut up. I did a mindfulness course a few years ago and it was, imo, such a load of total bull**** that I quit after like 5 sessions.I went to a hearing voices group a couple of years back and it made me feel so demotivated that these people were mostly like 40+ and still hearing voices. And yeah, I've tried confronting them a number of times (usually when I get so frustrated that I can't do anything else) and me getting upset like that makes them laugh and encourages them to be even more nasty. Now I just silently put up with them I really don't know what else I can do.


    Sounds good! I love baths, I like watching cartoons on my laptop whilst in the bath It's so warm and relaxing. Currently working my way through the last 10 years of the Simpsons.

    Aaaaaaaaaahhhhh! Being reckless and impulsive does not work with being anxious yet I am all three. Can't do this anymore and need to make positive changes in life.

    Hope all you guys are having a great day

    I think I'm in the same situation. I keep going to sleep between 6 and 7 am. Last couple of nights I've had an hour or two sleep just after midnight and then woken up. Can I join you? I really ought to see a doctor about it myself.

    Fingers crossed. Good luck. Stand up for yourself.

    I need to sort out sleep soon. I need to study, I have resits. I need to get a train up to my uni town at the weekend, see a gig. All time reliant things over the next 3 weeks-ish. I keep trying to find stuff to entertain me which isn't very productive really. I now have my computer setup where with luck it will be useful. Should mean I shouldn't have to rely on my phone most of the time or be too quiet at night. It should also mean I'll get my arse into gear and get a bit of work done overnight instead of nothing, although I'm not sure that will happen with the time I have left before I go to my uni town.

    Ramble below:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Bit low on cash, been meaning to send an email to uni about finance but haven't got around to it. I should have done it 2 months ago but I had to find a way to get home before my accommodation contract ended(my Dad made his excuses) or decide if I was going to stay at uni, it was all a bit last minute but I had 3 things I wanted to do at home(it's convenient to go travelling, go to a gig and go on some bike rides). And then I went travelling and then I haven't had full access to my computer and I have this horrible habit of putting stuff off. Mother's been unhelpful as usual which is probably putting it kindly. Threatening to kick me out for the, I don't know, I kinda didn't bother counting. I just ignore her these days. It's not that I don't think she'll go through with it, I'm just past caring. Even after I deal with all this stuff I have to get all my gear up to uni provided I get back in next year. Can't ask my grandparents, my Dad always has an excuse and often it ends up that I have to get a lot of my gear up to uni by public transport which as you'll know is impossible without multiple trips which is a huge amount of effort and very costly. I can't drive. Literally the only reason I could really do with knowing how to drive is to get to uni. I can deal otherwise. No friends to take me either. Not sure I have any alternatives. I'm going to investigate blablacar nearer the time. Might still need multiple journeys but multiple cheaper journeys by car is better than multiple journeys by train carrying 30kg+.


    PS: I really should have set my computer up here sooner, been all kinds of things that stopped me but it's nice and quiet, I'm alone. I can do what I want, I can be productive. All things I haven't been able to do for what seems like ages.

    I feel you dude! :') I knew about Bastille around 2 years before they'd even released a proper single and they had about 10k views on some of their video's; Pompeii comes out (which was their third released single) - get's a huge push on the radio and on the tv music channels and suddenly everyone loves them. I've been to see them four times and I swear 50% of the people there only know Pompeii -.-

    Rockstar is right up there with Pompeii for overplayedness too. Don't know why people dislike Nickelback so much too, they're incredible live and their music is damn good too.
    I don't understand why people hate nickelback either! I love some of their stuff! And ofc bastille <3

    I think the fact that you recognise she's trying to make you feel bad is important. Hold onto that, you're not a terrible friend. I wouldn't worry about apologising too much for not being in contact. It's nice to wish someone look but it isn't something you are obligated to do, especially if you're struggling yourself. Likewise talking about an exam afterwards, if you don't want do talk about something then she should respect that.

    In other news I messed up one of the hostel booking for Croatia, luckily my friend sorted it out but still feeling a bit :/
    Won't be online until the end of August now so hope everyone is okay.
    I went to Croatia as a kid, it was great! Have fun :]
