    I do psychology. There's soooo much reading and I'm absolutely terrified about accidentally plagiarising and having to reference and stuff, so scared of getting thrown out!

    I can do all sorts of pasta meals and stuff, but nothing very substantial or healthy as such. I need to eat up the food I've got for the next few days, and then put in a shopping order with lots of chicken and veg! I need to actually make a shopping list, rather than just buying random crap and throwing it together!

    Like I've been out on plenty of nights out with them, and we generally get on really well. We're far too inappropriate with one another, but couldn't ask for better house mates really, I just haven't really figured out who my 'friends' in the house are, and like who would care enough to listen to me, if that makes sense? Like I kinda feel like spilling my mh problems in the second week is probably a bit too intense. I haven't been to see anyone because I don't know where to go really, and I'm mega awkward talking in person
    I'm a drowning psychology first year as well, it's all going to work out :hugs:

    Ahh, that's a shame. What course do you do btw? Have you gone to anyone for help? I know it can be hard at uni from experience though as it's quite a big step up. Well I wasn't really very proficient either at cooking, I just knew basic stuff such as pasta & otherwise lived on ready meals, I need to cook more at home basically, how about asking one your housemates, or if you feel too embarrassed get a recipe book or something & try & learn yourself I think I know what you mean, people who you can talk to for a bit but not like hang outside with them yet? Have you any joined societies/clubs? I suppose the main thing is to lift your mood though, have you gone to see anyone for help from your Uni yet? (like people specialised in the wellbeing of students? Once your frame of mind is better you'll find it a bit easier, don't give up hope


    What did you do? What was the main problem with it? & haha!
    The problem was possibly that I was out of my depth with my course, and my mental health which has been worsening from the age of about 12. Been diagnosed at different points with schizophrenia, aspergers, social phobia and severe depression from the age of 20.

    Was mute through high school. I always wonder what if I'd been treated when my problems started at age 12.

    On a related note, had an utterly wasted day. Went for two walks, chain smoked, played my guitar a bit...that's it. I meant to read a book.

    Ah well...when you try your best but you don't succeeeeeeed, when you get what you want but not what you neeeeeeeed, could it be woooooorrrrrssse

    I haven't posted on here for a while! I've been feeling pretty good lately, which is always nice.
    That's great!

    Had a really good day. Went to trampolining club and a couple of people recognised me. Bit of a wobble at first but after that I was talking to people and messing about while being really useful to the coaches. I got a little carried away on one of the really great trampolines and have hurt my back pretty badly. It was okay after I hurt it but I've been sat down for and few hour and when I stood up i felt it. Hoping sleeping in a decent position will help if not the walk to lectures tomorrow is going to be horrible. Going to make a GP appointment on weds/thurs and see what they say about increasing meds. I was definitely better than this a few months ago so increase might help and it's better than starting a new drug from scratch.
    It's nice that you went out socialised & did some exercise, shame about your back, though hope it's not to serious

    Why are nights so ****ing hard to deal with?! I really don't like uni at all
    Trust me, it isn't just a uni thing :console: One of my therapists said that since we're confined to our houses at night, we have less ways to deal and cope with things, hence why they are often more difficult. Also tends to be less people to talk to in the twilight hours :hugs:

    (Original post by Riku)
    OK I've printed off my stuff for the EIT and I'll see what they say. Not sure if they can refer me to some other team who look at OCD etc. but let's see how it goes
    All the best! Hope it goes well

    Ah, I had the same fears too, although I did Economics & suspended it a couple of years ago due to finding it uninteresting/boring & having a rubbish social life. I found Uni work such a step up from A-Levels, found some of it really hard to grasp & remember & a pain to construct essays, it all took it's toll especially when your're on your own a lot as well :sigh: How do you revise btw, what sort of techniques do you use?

    Ah ok that's good that you at least have a plan!

    Well you've gone out with them, already better than my Uni experience aha. So yeah you just don't know who your close friends are, maybe try & talk to some of them when they're on their own if you can? Isn't there a section on your Uni website that gives you more information?

    Ah ok I'm terribly sorry you've had to deal with these illnesses :console: I had problems myself with challenging courses & I was shy & still am a little bit now around new people especially.

    Oh walking is nice, get some fresh air, smoking though :erm: I've always wanted to play guitar aha, you any good? What songs do you like? What book was that?

    i may not hurt people but i don't do them any good, theres no point in them being my friends, there are much nicer, better people out there. and my body is awful and i hate it and i just hate me
    That is not true and you have the same right at others to have fun. Nobody of us is so important, that lives stops, when we are not there, so don't feel bad, if you have the impression, it does only so, if you cut ties with everyone else. You are not so different from the others and not worse.
    But there is no reason to take a bit time of, just to care of yourself. And then try to interact more and more, in little steps and you will see, you will make bonds, you don't want to break. You can't ecpect to be the perfect friend, don't raise bars so high.


    (Original post by lauraaaaa)
    Just horrendously worried about being behind already and not being able to keep up with my course. I also can't cook and I'm eating the same **** over and over, and I don't feel like I've made any concrete friends here yet. Like everyone is nice and stuff, but they don't feel like proper friends yet? Idk my mood and depression have been really really low and **** recently
    It takes time to get proper friends at university. Just be nice, helpful and friendly and have the confidence, that you only need to be close friends with people, you actually can bond. Join societies you like to get the possibility to meet likeminded people. I know plenty of students, who met their friends relatively lately in their course.

    Just withdrawn permanently from my degree after four years of hell.
    When it was hell, then definitely the right decision.

    Da capo... Referencing is very easy, you just have to write after every sentence, where you have taken it from. And usually you are teached how to reference and the throwing out applies not to students, who just bein to learn how to write an scientific essay. It is not that easy and nobody expects from you to be perfect, no matter how angry they get. When you want, I could tell you more about referencing, but I think you will get it taught anyway.

    I can do all sorts of pasta meals and stuff, but nothing very substantial or healthy as such. I need to eat up the food I've got for the next few days, and then put in a shopping order with lots of chicken and veg!

    Yeah, I still struggle...to lazy to cook...

    Like I kinda feel like spilling my mh problems in the second week is probably a bit too intense.
    You have us for that! I mean at first, in some time you will have both!

    generally what makes a real man is a penis.

    not to be rude but not all men have penises, it doesn't make them any less real. Just like having a penis doesn't mean you're necessarily a man

    a "real man" would surely be any person who identifies as a male no? also "men have become pathetic" is pretty insulting to any male who doesn't fit whatever arbitrary standards you have decided determine a "real man". I also doubt most women think that way, if they did they would find it rather difficult to find a relationship with a man of any sort.

    theres no such thing as a real man. if I decided right now that I wanted to be a man then I would consider that to be just as real as any other man. its what you identify as, not your masculinity or any other silly criteria like that. cant believe you think lots of women think men are pathetic as well, I think you're living in a bit of a dream world, I must admit. If you've come to this conclusion from TSR, then that's all the more evidence to take everything on here with a massive pinch of salt. you're wasting your time and energy on things that aren't worth worrying about.

    having been very good friends with a trans (MTF) in her words "im still a woman because i have a penis"
    And im pretty sure by law she couldnt be a full female until after her operation to remove the penis.
    And if thats true for MTF then is it not true for FTM?
