You are doing good raspberry - you're keeping on going and you're such a lovely supportive person :hugs:
I'm not doing well, though... I'm sinking further and further. At this rate I'm going to end up in my GPs office again and I don't want that And I'm not supportive, I don't post much anymore

My counsellor thinks I've never learnt praise, I don't know how to learn it though I just feel it's wasting time: every day I do the same and it just feels so wasteful Please don't be proud, I'm doing nothing good.

I'll post the recipe when I've found where I put it I would send more but they got eated :bumps:

:hugs:
Ive never learnt praise also. Why dont we learn together. I have to go for a bit but keep going ok.

:hugs:

love you :hugs: xxx

You are supportive. You've been there for me plenty of times. I know things are hard right now but you're still fighting, you haven't given up yet :hugs: If you go to your GP that's ok, he can get you some help. It doesn't make you weak or a bad person :hugs:

It does because I hate going, asking for help makes me weak, he'll do **** all so it's just humiliating. I feel so alone.

Hi.
I just came across this society and hoped maybe it might be some help.
I've suffered on and off with what I think is a kind of depression since primary school. It comes and goes frequently, I'll have periods of tranqulity and near happiness for a few weeks, then suddenly one day I'll crash.. and feel like I'm in hell for months.
I don't really have many friends, and the friendships I do have are complicated and only seem to bring pain.
I spend most of my time doing nothing whatsoever, just sitting in my room.
Depression runs in one side of my family, but my cousin and aunt both got hooked on anti-depressents and it really screwed them up, so my parents won't let me go to the my GP or get medication.
I never feel like I have anything to look forward to, nothing ever really makes me happy, most of the time I prefer sitting in my room and not talking or doing anything.
When I crash I get really self destructive. I tend to cut down on eating alot and I've self harmed aswell.
I'm not really sure what the point of saying this is

Hi Gee :hugs: Welcome to the soc.
Could you perhaps go behind your parents' backs about this? It's not highly ideal, but it's the only way I've only ever been able to do anything about it. There are other options, eg CBT or counselling...

The cookies recipe, for sitara! (and anyone else...!)
Spoiler:
Show

Chocolate chip cookies
Ingredients
300g plain (all purpose) flour
(for double choc chip use 250g flour and 50g cocoa powder)
½ teaspoon bicarbonate of soda (baking soda)
1 teaspoon fine salt
170g unsalted butter, melted and cooled slightly
215g light brown sugar
120g granulated white sugar
1 tablespoon vanilla extract
1 large egg
1 large egg yolk
150g milk chocolate chips and 150g white choc chips (I use plain )

Method

Sift together flour, bicarbonate of soda and salt. Set aside

Stir together with melted butter, brown sugar, sugar and vanilla. Add egg, then the yolk. Beat well to ensure that the egg is evenly distributed. Stir in dry ingredients, then fold in chocolate chips until incorporated. It will look as if there are too many chocolate chips but the dough will be able to hold them all. Cover with clingfilm until firm. At least 30 mins.

Preheat the oven to 190 ̊C/Gas mark 5

Drop ¼ cup sized “hockey puck shaped” mounds of dough onto a greased baking sheet. You can use a slipmat sheet instead of greasing which works very well. I use a ¼ measuring cup to measure shape and shape of the dough which works perfectly (can you tell I didn’t?!)

Bake in a preheated oven for approximately 10-12 minutes or only until the edges begin to turn golden. (they’ll look and feel underdone but they're ready!) Cool on the sheet for 1 minute and remove with a wide spatula to a cooling rack. Cool thoroughly and enjoy!

I'm exhausted.
I'm not surprised, with what you've been through today. I know it's easier said than done, but try and get some sleep, lots of sleep. That's my basic defense mechanism, sleep and blot it out if you can.

Thanks for the welcome
I've thought about it, I'm just slightly apprehensive incase the GP is dismissive of me.
I just wish I could snap myself out of it. This Summer has been really bad for me so far, all the time completely by myself has given me way too much time to brood. I tried looking for a job, but I live in a pretty small town and nowhere is hiring, and besides when I did try looking, as stupid as it sounds I completely clammed up, just started blushing loads and couldn't bring myself to go into the shops, and when I did and people just said no I just felt worse and worse until I ended up crying. I feel like I'm hypersensitive.
I'm sorry for the whining

He shouldn't be dismissive of you And if he is, you could always change GPs?
You aren't whining I know what you mean about people saying no and crying, but unfortunately, I can't offer any solutions... yet!
