I live in an all girl block, just that should explain it, apart from the fact that there is one girl who is just poison. Talking about it helps, i kinda hope i get offered counselling. Talking helps :redface:
Haha, that does explain it! Man, I hate living with girls. I had an all-guy house in my first year, it was great. All drinking and making mess and being rowdy, with no gossip or politics to spoil anything. Ah, I miss it. With girls you have to be sensitive and nice and actually think about what you're saying.

Just got back home from one of those nights that actually makes you feel popular. Wasn't even anything big, just a wander around a bunch of bars for St Paddy's. Randomly bumping into unrelated groups of friends who go out of their way to include you and make you feel wanted, and best of all, offer to buy you drinks. Awesome. Plus I had some shisha for the first time in months. Wooo.

I have uni tomorrow, sleepy time is in order methinks.

why did you come off?
because I was sick of feeling depressed, angry, and suicidal on a drug I was prescribed for anxiety, and because the paraethesia and brain zaps were unbearable. Oh and I gained 10kg and I'm sick of being fat.

That said I'm not all the way off, I've made it from 30mg to 15mg so far (came down from 40 to 30mg over summer). I'm still getting fairly horrific withdrawal; paraethesia, awful mood swings, vertigo, muscle pain, generally wanting to vomit, lack of concentration- but those will pass in the end... hopefully.

no one understands anti depressants either. I'm so sick of doctors smiling and nodding because they clearly don't believe the side effects I describe. It's beyond irritating 'oh no those potent psychoactive drugs couldn't possible cause the symptoms you're describing, it's obviously just you being crazy despite never having these symptoms before you started taking it'

i'm still to be convinced antidepressants work. antidepressents cause anxiety, anty-anxiety drugs cause depression. seems like a pile of crap to me. it's putting me off ever bothering with medical help.
hope you pull through!
although i presume that means your anxiety will come back.
depression and anxiety have always gone hand-in-hand for me.

I hate inconveniencing my friends.

I also hate revealing myself to them like this.

So instead I drink alcohol alone.

I don't care if it does. I'd rather be anxious than put up with what I have done the last 18 months. Plus i know how to deal with anxiety- I have no coping mechanisms for dealing with depression.
