    Ah diazepam....I love you. Still shouting but at least I feel more in control of myself even if I can't control them.

    Seasonal changes in weather really freak me out for some reason. I just can't handle change. The weather keeps switching from warm to cold day to day and I feel really unsafe and confused because of it. I just want everything to be constant and never change, anything that I can't control causes more anxiety.

    Move to San Francisco - 10-20C all year round.

    Try to hang on, the weather will switch to cold every day soon enough it's just that annoying bit in the middle atm.

    Have you spoken to a psychologist about this? It sounds like something CBT might be able to help.

    That sounds like it would be great!

    I hope so. It's taken me a long time to figure out that it's the change of seasons that bothers me. I always used to get stressed out around weather changes, but I thought it was because I didn't like summer/didn't like winter. Now I realise it's about the change itself, so at least it's good to kind of understand why I feel so weird about it.

    Not specifically abut this, no. It's not my main anxiety-related problem, more just another one of many triggers.

    No problem.

    Mood-wise I am more or less ok, however I am pretty much in a form of statis,I do almost nothing productive, and have zero motivation to do so.

    Is there anything you can do that you really enjoy which is also productive? Maybe once you start something enjoyable but productive it might be easier to get yourself to do less enjoyable productive things? I know how tough it is when you've got no motivation though. :hugs: Even just playing a computer game might count perhaps, enjoyable and distracts you.

    I'm stuck with a lot of gender stereotypes and one of them I've got is that women will think that I'm a whiny wusspot if I say I need sleep. So not only am I struggling to sleep proeprly due to anxiety but forcing myself not to until it's unbearable, just so that I have to grit my teeth through the day and get on with it.

    I'm relly sick of having to do this

    Back at uni. Bit drunk. Been with friends tonight though and it was nice to see them. My room is nice too. Took higher mirtazapine dose tonight and hoping I can kick depression in the ass (again). If this doesn't work, will try raising venlafaxine and then I'll be on 45mg mirtaz, 300mg venlafaxine. That's as high as psychiatrist said we'd go, so not sure what would be the next step. But trying not to think about that. I ****ing hope this helps and that this year will be ok.

    Abilify (aripiprazole) can be used with an antidepressant to boost its effect. That might be worth considering if you can't go any higher with the antidepressant doses. You could talk to superwolf about it when they get back from holiday, I think it's working well for them.
