    Everyone always says that the north of the country is cold but I'm literally too hot 24/7.

    ***

    Going swimming with a girl from my course tomorrow. Pleased because I really like swimming but am usually too scared to go and because I don't wanna go alone but I am terrified because of scars.
    its fair chilly up north, weve had like minus10 or something before, possibly even minus14 so its all fun, but iv come down south and its soooo hot
    how am i meant to wear hoodies and wooly socks when im too hot

    Awesome post, and don't worry about veering off a bit towards the end - you just need more practice in being positive.
    eurgh, positivity :yucky: soooo as reward for such awesomeness you come and fill in all my future thinking forms for me? :puppyeyes: We could even swap: I'll finish your dissertation, you deal with paperwork and application forms. Plan?

    Hmm, what kind of forms? If you're lucky I'll get mildly drunk (it helps ) and help you do them over skype tonight.

    And then you do my dissertation.

    I had a bit of an odd occurrence today. I skipped school out of stress - I took diazepam but it didn't kick in until I'd already left the building, lol - and headed for the coffee shop. I remember sitting and waiting to order, and then, the next thing I knew, I was sitting with the empty cup of coffee in front of me, being asked if I wanted another.

    Out of the inertia of being thrown back into myself, I answered, yes, and had another. But I completely blacked out between sitting down and finishing my coffee. The only other times this has ever happened to me was when I was self-harming or binge eating, and, then, the memories faded over a period of five minutes or so. I've never had anything this immediate before, except once when I was sedated with some very high dose of lorazepam for tube-feeding. It's weird. I don't mind it; it doesn't bother me; it'd actually be handy if I could trigger it on purpose to get through stressful events; but it's weird.
    That sounds terrifying. Massive hugs from here. :hugs: I've had similar experiances when eating, when eating was a huge issue for me. I'd start a meal and then the next thing I knew, I'd be washing the dishes, or back upstairs. Would it be worth mentioning it to your gp or someone the next time you see them? :hugs:
    Also, noticed that you're from north of the border. :ninja: Are you in sixth year?

    I've been through the mill a bit this summer. I had a relapse during August and nearly ended up back in hospital (thankfully they only transferred me to the home treatment team).

    Ended up going back to work way too early and had two weeks of hellish anxiety that I couldn't deal with.

    Then on Monday when I was so close to just resigning (I literally had the letter written) I agreed to stay on and was prescribed Pregabilin which so far has taken away all of my anxiety while at work. It's only been one day but I know that if I didn't have it I would have freaked out today. Hopefully this will be enough to get me through this work contract and I'll be able to finish something positively for once without having to give it up before it gets to the end.

    Hey. Saw your pregabilin thread (had nothing useful to post though ), I'm really glad it's worked so quickly for you. Does it come with any bad side-effects (can't say I've ever heard of it before...)?

    The worst side effects so far are feeling drunk and spacing out. I was meant to be doing some work on the computer today for my boss and realised after half an hour that I had just been staring at the screen for all that time doing nothing. Doh!

    Heh, the bad kind of drunk, or the good kind? Hopefully those side-effects will fade soon enough (I had to put up with a fairly high level of side-effects at first on clomipramine, but it was totally worth it for how much better I felt).

    Wow. I hope one of these days I'll be in the same position.

    The best I've been able to manage is being in a full time apprenticeship. I'd love to go back to University but I think I'd need a bit more time yet before I could deal with that.
    [answered on here so as not to spam the other thread]

    Doing pretty much anything full-time counts as an achievement in my book! :five: I'm currently on a rigorous schedule of one hour's work a day. What's the apprenticeship in? I'm semi-interested in doing one at some point, only I think it'd need to be part-time until my ability to work in long stretches improves...

    i'm not too bad with food - I get panicky if the food I was planning to eat isn't around at home. I do panic if say my bus doesn't come, or they have a temporary route change. But as a whole I plan what I can do if something isn't the way I planned it. usually I panic if I can't get all my revision done or something. That really gets me down.
    Oh God I was insane with revision for my A levels to the point I got ill.. I was getting home from school and doing a further 8 hours revision.. completely obsessive and then I got hit by every single bug going and ended up ill in hospital which completely screwed my revision plans! God thats another thing that could set me off at uni :/ I'm SO excited.. but I have a feeling my health is really going to suffer!

    Hmm, have you asked the uni to help with SF? They sorted out pretty much everything when I went part-time and when I intermitted in terms of updating my status with them...

    I've developed a 39 hour hour week for revision outside of school. That seems to work for me, one hour less than last year, which puts me on edge a bit - an hour is quite a lot, but I think it will help to have a little less. Good luck for uni, try just to have fun at times and balance the work as well. What course are you studying?

    I'm feeling quite a bit better today actually - which I know won't last, but after how horrific yesterday felt, I feel surprisingly calm and quite cheerful.
    That sounds a sensible amount, dont worry about that 1 hour, although I know thats easier to say then do! Just dont make yourself ill like I did! Yeah I'm going to try my best. And primary education
    So glad you are feeling a bit better Hopefully it WILL last

    Thanks. :hugs: Will definitely try again tomorrow. :yep: Just hoping I manage, because they'll all start to worry if I'm off too much.
    Yeah, we're good at that.
    Yeah. They're so lovely to me, and don't seem to mind if I cry on them.
    Aw no. :console: Is there anything you can do that will take your mind off things, even if it's only for a wee while? :hugs:
    I'm okay. :woo: Had a friend over for a couple of hours (we were originally going into town for coffee but there's no way I would of managed that today). Really had a nice time, and we've made plans to meet up again.
    How are you doing? :hugs:
    Did you do it? Don't worry if you didn't! I hope you managed all right :yep:
    That's sooo lovely of them I wish I had people like that haha.
    I did in the end through watching David Mitchell videos :giggle: I'm feeling much brighter today
    N'aww that's nice to hear!! Did you have fun? It's good to see friends fairly often as they can help bring people out of their shells for a little while
    I'm doing great actually!! There's a new girl in our group and we get on pretty well (she has a boyfriend) and *touchwood*, i'm talking to people more often
    How are you hun? :grin:

    :hugs:
