    Currently on the train atm to go and visit Callan on his last ever day at college. Nervous as hell. I used to make this journey a few times a week about 4 years ago and in the last year, I've only managed it one other time than this. Feel sick with nerves :cry2:

    As it turns out, I've had OCD my whole life!
    I was thinking earlier that I've experienced these symptoms before. Then I realized: Throughout my whole life, I've always been washing my hands after being in situations I don't consider clean.
    I was shocked but it's true!
    If you don't know about my OCD, please feel free to ask me about it.
    But now I'm depressed that I'll never get rid of it
    Life sucks at times!

    Having my condition has psychologically scarred me its annoying bc I think I'm whining now and people are taking even though I know they don't want to and are listening just to be nice

    I just really badly overreacted and lost control for the first time in a while, I was crying so hard that it woke all of my family up :s I'm worried how they will react tomorrow and I just feel completely awful for getting upset over nothing, and the situation that set me off was kind of my fault too

    Been seeing a counsellor for the last couple of months about my depression. One of the things I've discussed is my lonliness from not having enough close friends or even a decent social circle, as I rely on my boyfriend a lot. I've made many attempts over the years to reach out to people, most of them failing and the rejections getting me down. Even staying in student halls has been really disappointing for the social life. I was worried that maybe I have some sort of social disorder, but my counsellor thinks I put myself down too much and that I probably just keep meeting the wrong people. Maybe my suspicions are right and the world just isn't as lovely as I'd like it to be :sad:. I dunno what to think really, but I just want to stop feeling lonely and depressed all the time.

    :hello: I'm sorry to hear about your depression :hugs: I think that a lot actually but I've only recently come to realise that I'm not really lonely and that bc I keep thinking that I am is why I can't really see the support I'm getting. :lovehug:

    I hate palpitations :cry2: I always seem to get a lot more when I don't get much sleep and I got none last night because it was so warm and I kept having panics and felt restless. As drained as I am, I am ok today, just hate these palpitations. Even though I've had them all my life, they still stop me in my tracks

    Awww can relate to that a lot :hugs: hope you feel better soon x

    Apparently I have been worrying someone in real life. I literally had no idea this was the case but apparently they could tell I wasn't right because they brought it up and said so.
    As I say people know more than they let on I feel..
    Anyways feel ok for once, a bit excited

    Thanks for the hug :hugs:. I guess I just have to accept that for whatever reason, I'm just never gonna be a popular person, and I'll just concentrate on my relationships with my boyfriend, family and my one female friend, as well as my hobbies :yep:

    :hugs: I know how you feel. I don't really have friends either, I generally just do things with my spouse all the time. I started a new university course in January and although I made like 5 friends we never went anywhere, they were just people to talk to during/before class. It often upsets me that I'm not more popular but I think you have a good plan here - concentrate on your boyfriend and family and try to enjoy things that way.

    I've forgotten (sorry), what are you actually doing at this stage in your life? Are you working/uni?

    I'm so glad to hear that, it's really awesome.

    I'm so scared that my MH diagnosis will get in the way of my career.

    I'm exactly the same. I haven't seen my friends in years and I'm not sure they are that bothered in seeing me any more.

    I just keep my self occupied now. As pathetic as it sounds I get most of my social contact through the internet these days. Talking on IRC and via forums and stuff keeps me in touch with people which does the job.

    Same. I'm doing a course in nursing atm and although it's not yet specialized I think mental health nursing interests me most but like you I have a lot of scars.

    I had three courses of laser treatment on my scars and it really helped but the guy who did it is from out of town and said it's too far for just one patient so I have no idea when/if he's coming back.
