    Hey guys. I'm new to the forum. I have been diagnosed as Bipolar II disorder though I can get quite psychotic at times but I'm not schizoaffective. I've also been misdiagnosed as Major Depressive disorder, and autistic.
    Welcome to MHSS! Toilets are down the corridor on the left

    ----------------------------------

    I WILL get some work done today, really don't know what's up with me. Going to see my best friend at uni later, it's 40 minutes away by train to a place I've never been before so I'm a bit anxious but I'm sure it'll work out.

    To me getting a job right now doesn't cure how I feel. It would make things easier. The way I see it is that I am doing voluntary work, gcse maths and English, open university, access course and a levels what more can I say. But does it make me recovered nope nope nope not interested

    Oh great I have to go a pointless recovery bull**** therapy for you apt.
    Why can't people just understand my view point I see recovery as broken leg cure I don't do mental health recovery
    I hate myself so much to care about recovery I see as something I am suffering with/learning to live with. I have had it for 8 sodding years I have been through thousands of tablets, had therapy, done the usual thinking positive bull****.

    Now I am accepting it comes and goes and its chronic not short term

    I'm only going to shut my bf, Dr Kate and gp up and I am refusing all meds.

    You know, I don't think hating yourself is healthy. :no: And therapy might be really helpful if that's your mindset and you agree to try and change it. :console:

    Welcome :wavey: Though sorry to hear of what brings you hear. That's a lot of misdiagnosis right there :eek:
    Thanks ^_^ Yeah, Australia's health system isn't very good... I've been on a ton of drugs as well. Was once taking 8 different meds a day...

    My halls are so boring. I do say hello to some people and make small talk in the communal areas sometimes, but there's no party atmosphere and I've not been invited out to nights out with anyone here. Plus, it's a college rather than a uni, so there aren't really any societies or anything here. I'm quite bitterly disappointed with how boring it is here compared to my sisters' uni halls, and it's making me feel a bit lonely.
    This sounds like a university in Australia. You're not the only one that struggles establishing inter-personal relationships as well. I wonder how well I will do in England once I get into a university... if I get into one...

    Hey, welcome to the society. Hope you're doing well today!


    I'm doing okay, just not feeling 100%. Feel completely exhausted, and tired. want to sleep lots... but I've gone about 4 days without sleep so it must be catching up on me. I was napping already.

    Posted this in another thread, though you guys would be interested too (it's an email I got from Mind the other day):



    Today, Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg announced the introduction, for the very first time, of mental health waiting time standards.

    For us, this is an important landmark in our campaign for better access to talking therapies. Your support and campaigning has helped make this happen and we’d like to say thank you very, very much.

    The announcement is part of a five year plan, which sets out how mental health services will be treated equally to physical health services by 2020.

    From April 2015, 75 per cent of people referred for talking therapies through the Improving Access to Psychological Therapies programme will start their treatment within six weeks. Everyone else will wait no longer than 18 weeks. People experiencing psychosis for the first time will start treatment within two weeks of referral, which brings it in line with cancer treatments.

    Just last month we found that 40 per cent of people have to wait over three months just to find out if they can get talking therapies and shockingly, 1 in 10 people have to wait more than a year. This isn’t good enough and it’s why you’ve been helping us campaign on this for years. It’s also why waiting time standards is one of the six campaign commitments we’ve been calling for in our Mind Manifesto.

    Today’s announcement is a welcome first step and acknowledges the unfair imbalance that has long existed between physical and mental health services. We now need to see these important ambitions translate into tangible improvements for everyone trying to access the help they need. If you want to continue to fight for better mental health for everyone, take a look at what else we'll be campaigning on over the coming months.

    What today shows is that we’re stronger together and we can make things happen.

    Thank you,

    Paul Farmer

    Chief Executive, Mind

    Are you Australian then? I hear there are no hamsters in Australia, and this saddens me. :sad:

    I hate going without sleep - you a regular insomniac, or is this unusual for you?

    You mean, you've been to university in Australia and experienced this? Funny, I found backpacking in Australia and staying in the hostels there was an amazingly social experience for me - it was so easy to get chatting to lots of friendly people and constantly get invited out to stuff instantly. Sadly, no where else has been as exciting ever since, not even summer camp work in the USA. Meh whatever, I'll try and rely on myself more to make my life exciting :p:

    I'll definitely read it later - sounds like it merits more attention than a half-asleep wolfie can give it!

    Your AMA seems to be going really well, congrats.

    Yes, I'm actually British-Australian. Born in Britain, lived 11 years in both Malaysia and Australia. I speak with a rather posh london accent so I am told. I think it's Received pronunciation though. Yes I'm a chronic insomniac I take sleeping pills but they don't work lol. I was on seroquel for it, now I take a combo of Mianserin, Zyprexa, and Valdoxan. Oddly I've found mixing liquor with this combination makes me hyper at night... So no drinks.

    I've been at Curtin university for 3 years, and have only meet about 2 people that are on a similar wave length for me. Its probably me though, I am a very serious person and sometimes I am aloof, and clinical. I get along great with Americans though.

    Thanks It's coming along very slowly, but it's coming along! Congratulating myself with soup. :drool:

    EDIT: SOUP EVERYWHERE. I pulled the ring a bit too enthusiastically and it ended up on my face, the walls, my elbow and my dressing gown (not ashamed to admit I'm still in my pyjamas on a Friday afternoon ) Didn't even know a soup explosion was possible.
