    Yeah, haven't told my parents either It's good that you're still getting support though
    Fairly sure when I needed a letter from my doctor a year or so ago he didn't charge me anything at all, but there you go!

    The school decided when i first started to get help, that i was old enough to make my own decisions about who knew and therefore didn't push me to tell my parents, although at the beginning they encouraged me to say something, however they understand why i don't want to and respect that. Which is pretty good because i started accessing support in year 10. College is going to be difficult but I'm going to be getting transition sessions to help me with getting used to the place, and luckily i know people there already so therefore i won't be totally alone, right?

    I've heard of docs charging up over £40 from students, which is totally ridiculous.

    Anon - that aside, Saber is totally right. Ask and see what can be done :yes:

    Furry - thanks for the kind post. Laptop being strange so typing on my phone

    It was crazy, i know. They didn't even tell us they were charging for it until my mum went to go and pick it up for me...

    can't sleep, have all the thoughts going around my head still... Unsure how to deal with this...
    Thats redic! Pretty sure they are meant to tell you before so you can chosse to not do it if beeded!

    I needed a not from my drs for uni once, and they did it as a statutory sick note rather than a proper letter as it meant it was free

    atleast youll be with people, thats the important thing hun.

    Let atleast 1 person from the group know your plan so if you suddenly dissapear they know why, and perhaps make a deal that you either drag someone with you, or phone someone asap when you disappear. :yep:
    Its ok, guess iv got to put up with it! :hugs:

    Sadly they noted it down as college paperwork and therefore charged me.

    Said college sent me a letter home about the support I need once, and that was hard to explain to parents without giving stuff away. Luckily now they (the college) know about that situation I have so therefore hopefully they won't do it again.

    I think I've hit a new low... Cant make this stop and everything's ramping up and making me feel worse.

    Only hope I have right now(in terms of off the internet) is a friend that kind of understands my issues, but I'm not sure if she's awake right now and don't want to wake her if she's sleeping because that'll make me feel worse.

    When I get really anxious I sometimes cry. Pretty sure it isn't that normal but it is for me.

    Sorry to hear you fainted but glad your father took it better than expected. My dad only acknowledged last year that I hear voices, despite me having been seen at my mental health hospital for voice hearing since 2010 So it's good that your dad's reaction was much better than that! :hugs:
    Thanks. :jumphug:

    On the medical notes subject - my GP (who I'm not a fan of anymore) told me that the practice I go to don't usually give out medical notes, so the one I got for my school so I can get rest breaks is a "one off". Um, I smell bs.

    Dreading taking my medication this morning. I have to study today as I have an exam on Tuesday afternoon but I couldn't study yesterday as I was so bad. :eek:

    How can I take my tablets when it's becoming a chore to eat? I'm not hungry anymore and I don't like it.

    You might as well give it a shot. A doctor's note costs, what, 10 pounds? Either they'll accept it and you get the extenuating circumstances or they refuse it and you're not different to what you are right now.
    Do you know what they could write? Like 'so and so experienced X throughout the academic year, which is believed to have hindered her performance'?

    One of my drs notes said I had been experiencing it for several years, and that it affected my ability to sleep, concentrate etc. But then I have had other drs notes that have been less specific and just confirmed I had X, was taking medication etc.
