    think im going to stay away, bye gyuys
    :jumphug: is that a good idea? up to you, don't feel like you have to though or that you've done something if that's why, but if you think it would help then obviously that's good. Please try stay safe though, can always PM me if you need to (now included!) :hugs: Also sorry if I upset uou or made it worse or something the other night, I didn't mean to at all


    Edit: Also Saber, citirizene (probably spelt that wrong!) works far better for me than most antihistamines, mostly for other allergies but for hayfever as well.

    nah I haven't, unfortunatley I doubt in my current state I will be able to concentrate for even 20 mins on uni work
    Try five on and five off? Once you get into the swing of it it can really help. It pretty much got my through my undergrad dissertation. Or just chunking tasks so you can see your achievements as you go along.

    Hope your brain plays fair.

    I actually thought I'd grown out of hayfever as I haven't had it in so long - been on the mirtazapine over 5 years! I know this isn't really the place to ask but have you found anything that works well for it? I'm trying OTC stuff and can't really be arsed to go to a doctor.

    That does not sound good :console: I was sleeping 16 + hours so 11 is a bit of a cutdown I just feel like it's not good enough, but thanks for the advice I'll try to do things slower.

    Super glad to hear your sleep is almost back to normal, that's hopefully the plan for me. :five:

    I get hayfever and skin allergies (I know, I'm allergic to most of boots yet I don't know what it is...)
    And I take Certizine which works. You can get it OTC and prescribed as well. (Prescribed it for my allergies but it helps with my hayfever - my doctors are really stingy with medication(only prescribe it for at the most 7 days, and even when I asked for more because I was going away I was met with a: why do you need it that long for, you'll have no issues then. What a load of crap lol) so I buy it OTC and it's basically the same.

    Oh boy, don't get me started on skin allergies! I also have no idea what I'm actually allergic to but get rashes from some soaps, shampoos, laundry detergent, and moisturizing creams. I was even allergic to a leather chair I had. Thank god I don't wear makeup or I bet I'd be allergic to that too.

    Have you tried asking for one of those allergy tests? I keep meaning to but yeah I'm lazy.

    Thanks a lot for the advice both of you. Just checked and certizine is available here so I'll definitely give it a try. There's only so many showers you can have in a day If it doesn't work I'll probably have to start the mirtazapine again :/

    Same here, went to the doctors with it once and they where just like: "its this, take this and you'll be fine" (reasons why i hate that doctor, she was just trying to get me out the door and didn't care... Never saw her again after that... Luckily the other female doctor at my practice is super nice...) I want to get tested but my mum thinks its pointless and stupid... I also wear make up and i have to get hypoallergenic makeup which is expensive... ;O

    Hope it works for you!

    Ergh that sucks, she sounds crap - some doctors really just don't give a ****. Why does your mum think it would it be pointless to find out what you're allergic to? :confused:

    Thanks, I hope so too

    My main doctor isn't ever in the practice, he's always on holiday lol... Hence why i usually see the female doctors. The one that diagnosed me with RSI basically told me to take ibuprofen 3 times a day (she prescribed it) and to buy a wrist splint... Helpful. Not. (still keeps coming and going and its been awhile since i was told i had it.. :/) Mum also thinks me going on the pill is stupid etc, she refuses to discuss it with me even though I'm old enough to make my own medical decisions.. :/ She also think it'll stop me from going to college... -.-

    I have no energy left to pack for tomorrow. I'm sitting surrounded by bits but getting them into my bag in the right order feels impossible.

    Same offer as I said to cesca, if you wanna talk bout it, I've been diagnosed with it so I have some idea about it. And I wouldn't see it stopping you being a pharmacist, I'm studying to be a social worker and occ health have said it's OK to me Posted from TSR Mobile
    thanks, I'll send you a PM if that's okay? :hugs:

    (Original post by ParadoxSocks)
    Share your concerns with your doctor or somebody you trust. Don't sit in panic over it, bpd criteria does mirror a standard personality taken to the extreme but if you're concerned then talk to somebody.

    Also *glomps*
    il mention it to my doctor when i next see him :yep: I feel like I have the symptoms of low self worth, thinking I'm a terrible person, switching between extremes of emotions, being terrified that I'm going to do something that makes people hate me and then they'll leave and I won't have anyone etc :/

    She sounds helpful Could you try asking when your doctor will be in and see him for the RSI?

    Your mum sounds erm....interesting. That's really weird she has those views. I hope this doesn;t sound racist but are you south Asian? If you're in college I take it you're like 17/18? So almost old enough to go to uni and make your own medical decisions there - something to look forward to at least!

    Yeah, definitely! I'm the same on the skin things as well, drive me mad but I've never worked out what it is I'm allergic to and seems to vary day to day as well. I'm too lazy for makeup though so that bit's not a problem, it looks ridiculous on me and I don't have the coordination to put it on anyway

    Totally not racist, my mums British but she's in her late fifties so i suppose she doesn't really understand... She always says: "oh things were worse for me, grow up" etc. Everyone thinks I'm older, i'm sixteen and I'm going to college in September... Not going to uni for at least 2 years...
