Just dread at what's waiting for me at home. Worried about everything i've left up in leeds and about lots of little things. This is really silly. I don't know what i think they're going to be like. Not as bad as i'm imaging i bet. :hugs: don't know where i'd be without you guys, especially recently.

I feel so bad :cry: i cant even sleep. :cry: i cant even be bothered to get up from bed because im so low. havent even moved at all :cry:
Siti, I agree with emily, I think this is just a normal grief reaction, exacerbated by your depression. Perhaps it's best just to tolerate it for the moment and let it wash over you. It will pass in time. I'm sorry you feel so bad though :console:

I am seriously outraged by this - did you know that if you've been sectioned under the mental health act, no matter how long ago it was, you are automatically barred from sitting in Parliament or being a GP? :mad:

Perhaps you could get her a card or something to say thank you and wish her good luck.
I was planning to. I have a sneaky suspicion she is going on maternity leave but did not want to ask last time in case it turns out she isn't pregnant :p:.

Siti :hugs: I'm sorry you couldn't sleep.

Feeling like crying again, but can't Kinda angry and just generally

jonathan, I heard about that the other day, in a debate as to why MPs seemingly don't have any mental health problems. Aren't they the 2 groups that should be challenging stigma?

This is what ive written for Esthers Eulogy, im going to tailor it later:

Love is always patient; love is always kind; love is never envious or arrogant with pride. Nor is she conceited, and she is never rude; she never thinks just of herself or ever gets annoyed. She never is resentful; is never glad with sin; she's always glad to side with truth, and pleased that truth shall win. This quote from Corinthians reminds me of Esther, her kind nature and the ability to be there for me and for others when they needed someone to talk to. Esther to me was more than amazing, she helped me blossom and helped me smile. There was always a smile when Esther was around, whether it was the people around her who smiled or it was her, smiling in greeting.
She had a fascination for Lord of the Rings, and Pirates of the Caribbean, and we spent many long hours watching them, talking about them and just fantasising what it would be like to meet some of the actors. She loved the Simpsons, and again watching them for hours laughing with her was an amazing experience. When we last met, we watched an episode, and it was good to see her glowing with laughter, like so many times before.
I remember playing music with Esther, it was first the recorder when we played that in the first term of year 7 in Hornsey and that carried on. Every Tuesday we would meet with other people and play lovely music, from Mozart to the old folk piece. That carried on to when we played the clarinet, jazzing along in the wind band. Every Christmas, our band leader would give out a chocolate, and me and Esther would often swap, so I would get the chocolate truffle, because there were only 4 per box, and she knew I liked them. She instead got the mars, and we would sit there together, eating these small chocolates, smiling.
I remember other times, such as Esther’s baptism, it was a pleasure to attend. I remember wearing a colourful top which I believe was tie dye and a flowery skirt. I remember Esther going up in front of the gathered people, smiling. I remember sitting there, smiling because I was so proud of her, but also privileged that I was invited.
To me Esther, was someone who always smiled, it was a beautiful smile which lit up her face and her eyes. I remember when she got her A Level results, again smiling, and telling me she was off to America to go on her gap year, I was so jealous. Then a week later she was in the paper talking to journalists, a star to her family and friends but also in the media.
Esther told me about her time in the states when I last met her, and how once there was so much snow that it was deeper than anything she had seen in her time in London. She told me of where she worked and how that made her smile, and felt like she was helping people. She was going to go to Canterbury Christ Church, and study occupational therapy. She was going to continue helping people, and continue making people smile, just like she made me.
Esther to me was a fantastic person, with a heart of gold and the ability to make the world smile (if someone gave her the chance). She was selfless, kind, funny and a pleasure to know. Im so glad I knew her, because she made me smile and she still does. The memory of her smile, the memory of the hugs I would get every day. I will always remember her, and Im sure her memories will never fade because Esther, to me, meant so much, more than I could ever say.
