    Wow it certainly has been a while since i've been on. I'm starting to treat it like fb! (up voted)

    Proud of you fr two reasons:
    1) sounds like you helped her out which is nice
    and 2) It's great that you were able to be so open about your depression
    Thank you!

    1) I feel that if I can help just ONE person out in some way shape or form by them viewing my life and what I go through and somehow use that as a foundation to get better, me going through all this crap would have been worth it. It'll mean that it'd be one less person descending into it all this or it'll mean one more person getting out of it.

    2) I'm still struggling to talk about it, but i'm more open to talk about it when I feel like it's necessary like it was with the girl

    Thank you for your kind words

    Thank you. They're just so loud. :cry2: I really dont know what to do about it all.

    How are you? :hugs:
    Also, glad about your story with the girl but it wont let me rep you. :sad: :ninja:
    They maybe loud, but you're heart and soul are louder and more stronger. It's tough and I know it's hard for you, but I believe that you can get through this!! Is there anyone you could talk too?

    I'm feeling good now, I had a little down day on Tuesday and felt meh but I feel brighter now
    N'aww thank-you!! I don't think I can rep you either caused I repped you fair recently
    :hugs:

    Don't know if this helps or not, but thought I would mention it anyhow, as it sometimes works for me.

    I write down in a word document what is happening, or to be accurate, what I believe to be happening. Then I investigate, one by one, each point individually, academic style, to check the evidence, all within the same word document. I do it bullet point style. It has been successful in pulling me back into the real world sometimes, depending on far gone I am I guess. It can allow my 'logic head' to gain additional strength to overpower the 'illogical head' I suppose.

    Last night was really bad. My wife and I had a 2 hour argument about the government. Now she's threatening to get them to take me to hospital. She doesn't realize that's exactly what they want, what could be better than locking me up and giving me all kinds of mind-altering drugs, I'd be right under their thumb with no escape. There's no way in hell I'm letting that happen, last time it was so bad. I have a psychiatrist appointment on friday to decide my fate and my wife is coming with me so I can't lie about everything, I don't know what to do, I want to run away and hide.

    Hmm, I think they are just getting more and more scared of me :sad: I didn't want to remove all their nesting / safe place - hence why it took so long, I had to entice them into a knitted tube or eggbox with treats and then transfer them. Didn't help that I was shaking from being scared of dropping them and they run away.

    Done the easy bit of cleaning the cage, need to let it dry, and then do the second easy bit of putting bedding and stuff before I have to try and get them back into the cage. At least this time there are in a much smaller cage so *should* be easier to catch, and they *shouldn't* want to have a nap for a few hours like earlier!

    Don't know what to do. Hating myself a lot at the moment. I'm doing stuff I don't even want to do anymore to try and cope and my feelings about it are all over the place. Everyone thinks I'm doing OK but I don't know how to keep doing this. Everything just feels so horrible. Don't know what to do.

    I'm not so sure it is. Last night my wife kept shouting that all she needs to do is tell the psychiatrist what I told her and that's it I'll be in a hospital and that terrifies me. What you said before was right on the money, I just want to be left alone, live happily with my wife and get on with my life making the best of things and telling the truth isn't going to lead to a situation where that's possible.

    Today was mixed . Once again I woke up too late to be able to have breakfast before going to lecture :sad:. Then when I did go in I sat next to the people I knew but there were others there that were incredibly distracting, plus it was right at the back and I couldn't get a word of what the lecturer was mumbling . Then for the tutorial I decided that I'm going to do the mature thing and sit at the front away from all these people :yep: and I got some work done :smartass:. Then after that several of us went to the bar and one of the girls was clearly drinking too much and she did something stupid and got kicked out (getting on top of the pool table :eek:). She keeps smiling at me and was flirting with me earlier :blush: . Then I had to go with a girl who lives on my floor to the bank because she needed to sort something out, and that went good. And then in the evening I went back home for the night which is where I am right now.

    I don't think so. Telling the truth will show your wife you understand her worries and want to get better. Going to hospital won't be the end, but a new beginning. The thing is, you only get away forever (that is what you fear, or? ), if you trust the voices, if you don't trust them, you won't and will live with your life. You know that this is the logic, not by not telling the truth avoiding treatment (which will get you in a better state, as you know). Anyway, you will battle and win!!!

    Mousies in their proper cage, and looking fairly happy now Elliott persisted in being trouble to get back (he was the cause of the 9 hour transfer), I think the problem is he is the smartest, so he isn't as easily tricked by 'treat-in-a-box'. Thanks for your support :hugs:

    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.

    Sorry for late reply - even things like replying to posts about me I put off ><

    I am able to do things unproductive such as watch TV / play games (usually) without issue, although if playing a game and it goes badly, makes me feel worse. Unfortunately, that is all I can do. An example of just how useless I am - I have been meaning to post some presents to my sister for her and her family for about 2/3 months now, I can't even get myself to wrap presents ><
