    Looking for someone open-minded/non-judgmental, preferably feminist, and not triggerable from reading stuff about CSA.. If you have these qualities and are also able to proofread, I'm looking for someone to rip apart something I've written (not so much the content, but any grammatical/ordering things).



    You are awesome and literate and totally fulfilling the above criteria, right? (No problem if you're busy or whatever, just figured you'd be more likely to see if quoted and I'm fairly sure you're a lovely non-judgmental person who I haven't spoken to about this stuff before so would be able to see it with a fresh eye.)

    I also can if you need ^^

    Went to a hockey game last night. During the intermission a group of 5 year olds played, they were so incredibly cute in their little skates and pads I never normally feel broody but seeing those kids made me realize how much I want to be a parent. My wife and I have agreed none until I'm off the medication and also once we have decent jobs so I'm gonna have to wait a few years yet. Lowering the haldol isn't going so well, I've spent all day in bed avoiding the living room where the walls are louder, now on my laptop in bed feeling really scared and useless.

    Thank you so much


    Kind of relating to what I said in my post on the other thread, I'm starting to feel incredibly threatened and scared by people banging on the flat door. I think one of the halls representatives was banging on my actual room door earlier, but I'd been crying my eyes out and I didn't want anyone to see that. I don't know how they got into the flat, but they were trying to find people to go out clubbing. Waah

    Aw no. :console: Why are they banging on your door? :hugs: Is clubbing not your thing? Really hoping they stop soon for you. :yes: Remember you can keep posting in here- someone is usually up. I know it always makes me feel alot safer. :hugs:

    That's a cute smiley and one I've never seen before
    I like any music really. I listened to the song - it's so cheery and nice to listen to.
    Oh gosh that seems like a very difficult thing to do - my ears could hardly keep up with it
    It's my favourite.
    Glad you like it! I'm a big fan- have all their albums on my mp3 player. It usually cheers me up/calms me down. :yep:
    Yeah, I doubt I'll ever be able to. But it's something to aim for.

    This is what happens when two shy people want to speak to one another...they don't haha It's a huge pleasure to talk to you too :grin: :hugs:
    It's worth a shot! So...if it means that you;re the best in the world at picking up a pencil, at least you acknowledge you;re good at something haha. Do it for like 5 minutes and you may find yourself having a little more confidence and maybe laughing at yourself in a good way
    For now i'm doing content so neither happy or not happy How about you? :hugs:

    Psst, check your rep bit on TSR homepage :mmm:
    Yeah exactly. :five: Sucks to be shy.
    I'll definitely give it a go. :yep:
    Glad you're okay! :hugs: I'm panicking slightly about having to go into school tomorrow. It's only for a couple of hours and I wont be in classes but it's making me feel sick just thinking about it.
    Psst, check yours... :ninja2:

    Yeah and tell me what you think...now that we're talking to each other
    Thank you!! :hugs: Aww noooo, could you not inform the teachers or head of sixth form (I assume that's where you are) that you're not feeling well? What I did when I was having an off day (I wasn't suffering from depression back then), i'd sit quietly by myself with music in my ears and try to do work If you're not in classes, perhaps you could try that or something that could make you feel more at ease. I hope you have a great day tomorrow hun :hugs: You can always pm me if you need a chat too

    Psst, I did and it made me smile like a Cheshire cat. I think me and you will get along juuuuuust fine

    I definitely will. :yep: Have written myself a note to remind me to do it.
    Yeah I'm in sixth year. (final year of high school up here). They already know I'm not coping. That's why I'm only in for two hours in the pupil support classroom (which will have one, maybe two other people and a teacher or two. That's a plus because then it's not as embarassing/unfair on others if I start crying or something. It was suggested that I take a packet of cards in so I can try that if I'm not up to doing anything else. I think I might do that. Just feeling so sick about it all. :sad:
    Thank you. :hugs: Hope you have a good day too! What are you up to tomorrow? :ninja:

    I'm sure you'd make an excellent parent! Thinking about that and the future may help you come off the haldol

    Was looking forward to doing some stargazing tonight, until I got told I weren't allowed to go out with no good reason not too - I only wanted to stand in the garden and look at the sky. I'd been looking forward to it all week long. Thanks parents for screwing up my perfectly lovely evening.
    Aw no. :jumphug:
    Is there something else you can do you enjoy to take your mind off it?

    They said they were going to bed and that I had to as well. They totally did it on purpose cause they've been staying up till 11 every night for 2 weeks, and now they go to bed a whole hour earlier. I am going to sneak downstairs and look out the window there - my blinds in the way in my room.
    That's not very nice Well I hope you get to see some stars from your window anyway I find them really calming and pretty to look at, although I cant say I'm into astrology :P

    I'm going to gaze out my window instead - not really as good but still better than nothing.

    That sounds like a plan. Is it a nice clear night for it where you are?

    I wish I didn't feel so alone. I can't cope. The pain I feel is so strong it's just overwhelming. Does anyone else get like this? But everything seems so bleak.

    Have you spoken to a doctor or a family member/close friend about it? I feel like this quite often and have been diagnosed with clinical depression. Please don't give up, you can do this! And your not alone, the mental health thread contributors on TSR are a friendly and helpful bunch :grouphugs:

    Clubbing is my literal idea of hell! I was told on another thread that the banging is because they just want to get people involved, and it dies down after Freshers - thank god!! Really not great for shy people like me, though. At my sixth form, while I was still introverted, I always spoke my mind and could be very very confident when I wanted to be! I really didn't think I'd be so terribly nervous, afraid and upset living in halls. My mum told me I wouldn't like it and she was right. I don't have any other options though, can't afford to rent a flat alone. I'll give it 6 weeks (my halls don't listen to any accommodation problems before then, they say we need to give it time) and reassess the situation. It's very early days, I'm just saddened by the way I feel right now. It's such acute pain

    Will definitely keep posting in here. Thanks for the hugs :hugs:

    How are you doing?
    I'm feeling really sick with nerves but the voices are quiet tonight, but that's because I fell back on a not so healthy coping strategy. Feeling really guilty now.
    How are you? Hope you're having a nice night. :hugs:

    Ah, it's my idea of hell too. :five: Really hope it all calms down for you soon. :hugs: Are there other ways of meeting people that might suit a shyer person, like through clubs and societies and stuff?
