    Boo, thank you for your little support messages they made me feel less lonely sat waiting in the waiting room

    Went to doctors, scariest thing (even though I've gone before when I was younger) he said I have anxiety and depression and prescribed me with Prozac and I have to see him again in two weeks, I've told a few of my college friends and my boyfriend and they're understanding and my parents are doing a BBQ tonight (they hate bbqs) so hopefully things are starting to look up, anyone else on similar medication?

    Hope everyone's well, take care :-)

    I'm on that. Made me feel really queasy for a couple of weeks but that wore off. :yep: Don't feel it's done anything for me so far but I'm still on quite a low dosage while they sort out my other medication (they dont want to change both at the same time). Hope it works for you! :hugs:

    You're definitely right about having less time to think when you're busy. :sadnod: The only thing is, I'm not really managing much without bursting into tears at the moment. I'm at the stage where even brushing my teeth this morning was totally overwhelming.
    Dont let the fear hold you back! :hugs: NOTHING is unfixable, there will always be a way back if you need it. Can you sleep on it and decide tomorrow? :hugs:


    :jumphug:
    Really hope you're okay.





    Thank you! :hugs: I'm so nervous.
    Is there a chance you can do things in steps and if things DO get to much you can have a rest or something?

    If only i could sleep. Third night in a row now but i know as soon as my boyfriend wakes up and texts me ill fall asleep straight away :/ its like i need to know hes there and ok if i need him when im asleep

    I think that's what I'm going to have to do. :yep: Try and break it down into tiny chunks and do it bit by bit. Luckily my mum is taking me for a coffee in between appointments so I'll have time to melt on her if needs be. I'm so pathetic at the moment. :cry2:

    Oh no sorry you're not sleeping. That's rubbish. :console: Lack of sleep makes everything else worse. :hugs: And there's nothing wrong with that at all, I'm the same with my boyfriend. :blushing: I text him until I fall asleep most nights.

    Struggling with social interaction today, sat locked at my desk with two very nice people either side of me who all I could say to was hello for two hours.

    Thanks.


    Sorry to hear that - I've had that kind of problem myself before. Nice people like that are generally pretty understanding though, and will be happy just to talk another time. I also find it helps to have something specific to talk about, like asking for help with something (can be pretty minor, just something to get you started).

    :console: I'm planning on doing some baking later, and maybe some crochet, to make up for lack of dissertation effort. Have you ever made a list of activities you can try when you're feeling like this? I used to have an actual physical list, but now I just keep it in my head and go through it when I'm at a loss what to do. Can be something small and relatively pointless, like looking up origami online, or you could go to the park, write a letter/email to someone, make plans for the next few days etc.

    Hope you find something you can do soon.

    Yeah I managed to say hi when one of them came back which for some stupid reason I was even nervous about. So far I don't have much to do here at work because I just started so there isn't much to ask. I pretty much just sit here waiting for something to do.

    I'm too afraid to go into the staff room because that many people I don't know or have much in common with makes me really panicky.

    You'll get into the swing of things I'm sure, and be overworked before you know it!

    With the staff room, maybe once you've got to know two or three people outside of it then going in won't be so scary, cos you'll have people you can talk to.

    Yes most likely haha

    Yeah I know some names and things, hopefully I will have something to talk about soon, breaking the ice is what I'm bad at I start to panic and it gets even worse. My voice goes shaky and I hate showing that I'm nervous.

    Yeah, I get the same, my mouth goes really dry usually and then my voice comes out all funny. One other thing that helps me is having an exit strategy - like making sure you have something you need to get back to in five minutes' time.

    still waiting on my sister having a baby which im getting so stupidly excited about, i just want to meet my nephew now, this whole waiting 9 months malarky is silly!

    ALSO sent off an application form for a job yesterday :eek: first one iv sent off this summer, so im quite pleased with myself :yep:
