    We went out to Leicester Square today for ice cream . Had a great time there and also got The Perks of Being a Wallflower on DVD :woo: :woo:. But when I came back home my eczema flared up really badly. I have a feeling it is because of alcohol. I'll be honest, I shouldn't be drinking because of the Sertraline but I am and it acts really quickly and makes me feel bad in the morning. I think I should just stop, I actually seem to be doing it because it is rebelling, but I shouldn't do that. I have seriously been put off now :yep:. At least the itch from the eczema has calmed down now . Also cleaned the kitchen earlier, not that it needed much cleaning anyway as us lot don't make much mess . My room is worse than the kitchen :ninja:. And I didn't get my act together and wash my clothes so I've had a couple of people ask why I'm so dressed up (right now it is only trousers and dress shirts that are clean, or really casual clothes that hardly anyone seems to be wearing. All the in between stuff (jeans, casual shirts etc.) are dirty right now, not that I had many to start off with (1 pair each of jeans and chinos). I went and got some more but they still need to be washed (do have enough casual shirts I think).

    :console: I could send you some of my herbal tea you admired so much? Anyway I doubt you're addicted, since you're not wanting to take them all the time. You might have built up a tolerance though, which is different and less serious.

    :hugs: Is there a back up plan in place for if things get bad again off the haloperidol?


    Got my meds by the way. :yy:
    Yeah...think I'll pass on the tea. I'm not so sure I've got tolerance to the sleeping tabs as when I take them I can still sleep fine, it's just if I don't that there's a problem.

    No back up plan. She told me to call her if things get bad but I hate calling her so I don't see myself doing that. I don't know what to do if things turn bad, I've got to get off it so if things do go pearshaped I guess I'd just have to put up with it.

    Glad to hear it. :five:

    Oh wow! :eek3: That must have taken ages! What did you do for your international octant? :ninja: I was a bit stuck on what would count for that.
    Yeah, I can imagine. :hugs:
    I can't for the life of me think what I did, my stuff is at home, I think I did something about fair trade, and went to a 4 nations camp

    I think i'm getting a bit stressed and anxious at the moment. My boyfriend leaves for uni on friday and i've been so used to his support ove the past few months that I don't really know what i'm going to do without him. I'm sorta worried i'll just fall apart again and go right back where I started (i was in a rather bad place around the time we started hanging out but i've been getting steadily bettter).

    My friend said to me a while ago that I was demanding (of my bf) so now i'm also worried about that. I don't think I am but i'm always second guessing what I do now incase it comes off as mean or demanding. He doesn't say I am and was actually very defensive of me and I think quite mad that my friend said it when I brought it up, but still I worry.
    I don't want him to have any bad impression of me and he's recently come out of a bad relationship so i'm not sure if he'll be more sensitive or if he's the sort of person who's easier to push around and doesn't notice so much when it's happening.
    I mean lets face it I can hardly be a low maintanence gf considering all of this **** i've got going on so maybe I am too demanding and he's accepting it eventhough he shouldn't.

    Stressing out quite a bit about uni too. Will I be able to cope with all the work? Will I make friends with my flat mates? Will I be able to settle in and take care of myself? Will I get to see my bf much or will we end up distancing from eachother? - All of that stuff.


    ----------------
    Anyway I hope you're all doing fine. Much hugs and good wishes to anybody else who's just starting at or going back to uni x

    Proper update time.

    Had CBT yesterday. Was properly terrified because I knew that after emailing her about really hard stuff I was going to have to actually talk about it. Having Nut. here beforehand was really helpful though. Stopped me going crazy with anxiety on Tuesday night/Wednesday morning.

    Nut. came into the actual room with me, which made me feel kind of.. secure? Therapist was appreciative of the email communication, which is good because I always feel kind of guilty for taking up her time outside of session. She said that it helps her to have the time to think of questions to ask me and an approach to take, so that's good, because emailing makes it a lot easier for me. We talked briefly beforehand about how I would communicate to her if talking was getting too much and I needed to stop.

    Talking about horrible stuff was really hard. Lots of crying and brief feelings of tactile flashback, though I only went into flashback 'proper' for like 5 minutes towards the end. T was very sensitive and everything though and she said she didn't think it made me disgusting or that it is bad to talk about. Even though I don't exactly believe her, it's still sort of reassuring just to know that there's not horrible stuff about me in HER head (unless she's lying. And N said she wasn't lying and that she'd be able to tell).

    T asked me to drop her an email if I have any post-therapy thoughts that I want to talk about, or if anything comes up over the week. N is still here atm and I'm doing OK, but maybe once she has gone home later I will start to go "****".

    Anyway yeah just wanted to post because trauma therapy is really hard and I've spoken a fair bit about how anxious I was about this session. So just wanted to say that I got through it and actually feel some level of relief.

    Can't help you i'm afraid but good luck. I've never had CBT like that but from my experience with other therapies it will probably be a bit wierd and maybe somewhat hard to fully understand to start with but when you get past that it will be fine. my dad had CBT in the same sort of way and he found it really helpfull for his anxiety

    Maybe try google if nobody else can help x

    Can you get a doctor's note (or similar) saying that that requirement/condition is unreasonable?

    It may be worth either you or Rory(contacting them on your behalf) contacting the disabled students officer in your student union, and see if they can help. My disabled students officer was helpful when I was helping Superwolf with some uni problems.

    The rules certainly seem to not be helpful for people with long-term mental health problems. It seems they don't recognise the different between chronic and acute depression.

    trying to apply for helping in my department...can't think of a single good reason why they should choose me not someone else. :facepalm:

    I wish I was better at the whole talking yourself up thing. Would actually really quite like to do it cos think would be helpful for me to feel more engaged in my degree and make me feel more like im not a complete waste of space, plus some of it just looks really interesting, but i dont think 'please choose me I really want to' is quite gonna cut it. gah real world adult communication is not my forte lol.

    Exactly what Iv bolded...
    THAT'S why they should choose you, because it will be helpful, interesting, which means your more likely to interact and get involved, and it will give you a purpose.

    You can big yourself up, it's just finding the right words to put it in
