    looks like another zopi filled night for poncho.
    You've probably already been told this, but you should be careful about taking zopiclone too much. It's addictive and over time you'll need more and more to get the same effect, you'll also totally lose any ability to sleep without it. Could you try finding something to fill the nights you can't sleep instead? I dunno, a book, a game - superwolf told me about online jigsaws and they're quite good I found.

    Ok, fair enough. Just making sure you're aware of the issues around it.

    i really dont know why he puts up with me, all i do is wake him up, or annoy him when hes awake. pretty sure thats my only role as his girlfriend :sad: hed get much more sleep and a lot less nagging if i wasnt with him, but i know hell disagree.

    im just sick of feeling like this i hope tomorrow is a good day because i sure need one. im so drained of feeling so down, yet i still have so much to complete at uni still. i have to go to placement and pretend im ok and happy.

    because i know my boyfriends about to read this i shall go get my zopi and turn off the light so i can sleep i guess. :yes:
    That sounds horrible :lovehug: Hope both of you get to sleep soon, I can't sleep either :sad:

    It shouldn't be so bad, generally they'll just ask about your current symptoms and how they're affecting you plus a bit about your history and your living situation. Shouldn't be too dissimilar to your first doctors appointment. Then they should discuss what some of the options going forward might be for you. Try not to worry about it, they'll have done dozens of assessments and will understand it's nerve wracking.
    Thanks for the reassurance. I really have problems talking though. Just hope I can get the words out because I know i need to do this!

    Woke up at midday today and managed to get out of bed around 4 after crying for absolutely no reason. Visited my gran for a few hours and got fed which was nice since I've not felt up to cooking for a few days. Then came home and felt sorry for myself a bit longer. Now I can't sleep and have to go to work tomorrow morning though I'd rather stay in bed.

    Not sure why everything has got worse suddenly. I think some of it is the fact that in the month since I left uni I have inly heard from one person that I was friends with. I get rhat towards the end I wasn't the most social person, and maybe mixing alcohol with ADs led to me being seriously annoying some nights and they all have exams but I just feel like no ine gives a c*** that I'm gone and that leads to some not so safe thoughts. Slightly reconsidering going back next monrh dor some big party stuff that iv already got tickets for, starting to think no one would want me there.

    Is this doable then? I'm considering my options and am at the point where it looks like I'm going to have to redo some of the 2nd year. I don't know what sort of finance options there are, but pregnancy must be a compelling personal reason!!
    Hey,

    Well student finance give you 4 years of funding in total (length of course + 1 year). So if youve only used 2 years so far and your course is for 3 years, then you should be able to do your 2nd year again no problem if thats what you wanted to do.

    But if you wanted to change course and start a new 3 year one thats when it gets complicated. Id already used 2 years of funding, and my new course was 3 years, so i needed an extra year of funding. the only way to get this is compelling personal reasons, mine was depression. You have to write how being ill made you leave uni basically, you need a doctors note aswell. But i spent ages reading others peoples stories on this and pregnancy very rarely got someone extra funding. But if you just wanted to do your 2nd year again i dont see a problem. I hope that all made sense :confused:

    But calling them is probably the best thing to do

    Hahaha :yep: run away now otherwise you feel the full force of the FireFly :lol: Haha you'll be waiting a while ... Ach I'm always like this.. I just get so bored at night and there's no one around to talk to

    Haha.. just imagine if they were :eek: You'd be radiating whiteness from your teeth everywhere you go haha well duhhh, but I'm just being nice and saying I hope you'll have an enjoyable time (does that sound better now haha).. very good plan indeed

    Meh, just this place really.. and a new nurse who really pissing me off

    :lovehug:
    Yeah but you're a really small bug that can be stood on... unintentionally As will you I fall a sleep quickly because if i'm stressed out, I get tired so I fall a sleep It sucks when no one is around to chat though :-/

    Hahaaaaa, i'd literally have that little sparkle on my teeth that you see on t.v every now and then I know, i'm just stating the obvious haha. Seriously good plan that's not quite going to plan in terms of coursework. I got a lot of day left so i'll get something done

    :hugs: Is there no way you can avoid the nurse? Or request for a new one? I hope things improve for you

    :lovehug:

    Feeling a bit sorry for myself. Bit hungover because glass of wine turned into almost a bottle last night. Had really quite a nasty flashback which made me fall off the chair I was on (assuming this, given I started off on chair and came out on floor) and my arm hurts where I fell on it and just generally pretty bleh. Was the first drunk flashback I've had for a while and they're pretty nasty because I think I just fully engage and can't fight it. Also feel bad that Nut. had to watch/listen when I was totally engaging with it rather than being able to respond at all. I dunno. Am tired.

    Hi,

    Is it possible to have some advice please:
    A now-ex friend of mine has the habit of blaming his depression on others and manipulates people. In my case, I asked him to stop contacting me and his reaction was to blame me for what's happened and then claim that it's all my fault. I've done nothing wrong. I just don't want to come on Facebook all the time and find messages from him. They're usually him asking the same thing over and over again.

    He also said that if he ends up in hospital again, it's my fault. I've done nothing wrong. I'm not the one blackmailing others when I don't get my own way.

    Unfortunately, he isn't someone I can avoid, which makes it worse.
    I know that it's possible to block certain people from sending you messages on facebook, and that sounds like it might be a useful feature for you.

    It doesn't sound like a very nice situation but it's good that you know you've done nothing wrong and that this isn't your fault. You just have to keep remembering that and try to find ways to prevent him from contacting you I think. :hugs:
