    It's my pleasure! :hugs: I'm sure you would lovely. I appreciate that.
    As long as you think you'll be alright, then that's the main thing. My evening was average, watched Downton Abbey then came online.
    Hmm, mixed emotions about this week, you?
    I've never watched downton abbey actually, keep meaning to watch and episode to see if it takes my fancy.

    Also mixed emotions this week. Over thinking things as usual if anyone has a cure for that I'd love to know

    At least mixed is better than full out bad :yy:

    I've watched it from the very beginning, it's really great tv.
    I really can't be bothered with this week in all honesty, or most weeks. It's dragging on. Life is so long. Gah. :hugs:

    Might give it a try, i've been thinking of trying netflix anyway

    Well, the week is over, new week new opportunities and experiences, you never know what good things might happen

    Life does drag on at times, but sometimes it's just there to test us. :hugs:

    Any plans for the week ahead?

    What about disability support at the university. I use them and they have been great! I've cut and pasted the following from UCL:

    Thanks I am already in liaison with them however I have to also go through everything with my personal tutor but he just seems to ignore my emails. I am going to disability tomorrow though anyway.
    Thanks for talking to me btw and being so helpful.
    Everyone on here seems lovely. :hugs:

    I just think, there is a reason, why you go to a pharmacy and get a prescription, instead of just using stuff on your own. But of course it is just my opinion, that self-medication is not the way to go. Weed is a drug and not the wonder thing curing everything from anorexia to bipolar disorder without any serious side effects. If weed has no other side effects than feeling less anxious and get into a state, where therapy makes sense, then great for him, but posting this on the internet is simply extremely irresponsible, just ask some of those with shizophrenia or those who get into a terrible state after smoking weed.



    Yeah, but even then you can't self-medicate, but need a prescription, or? Although the US is very loose with some drugs/medication and I could imagine, there are not as strict, if they are here with prescriptions. I don't know ...
    Personally I take the view that adults should have the right to take more or less whatever substances they like, even if they are potentially harmful to them (my main exception would be if a drug was shown to make people particularly dangerous/aggressive towards others). If someone knows and understands the risks of smoking weed, as well as any potential benefit, then I see little reason to try and dissuade them. And while it's by no means a miracle cure, I'd still stand by my view that smoking marijuana can be beneficial to your everyday life and even mental health, although that doesn't mean I'd go round telling everyone to start smoking! In my personal experience smoking it lightened my depression to a more tolerable level, and provided a means of socialising more easily at a time when I felt very isolated. It didn't change my situation or 'cure' me of anything, but as a palliative it did genuinely work for a time. At the time it provided what I needed to get by until I was ready to try again with getting professional help, and I don't regret that I used to smoke weed regularly (although I do wish I could have got proper professional help sooner - my first attempt at seeing a doctor went disastrously wrong...).

    Another interesting point of debate would be the relative ill-effects of legal and illegal drugs, and public knowledge of these. Alcohol can cause psychosis (as indeed it has done in my case), plus other mental health problems, and yet I'd never heard of alcohol-related psychosis even for several years after I'd developed symptoms! I'd say education is vital in allowing someone to make an informed choice about what they want to put into their body, even if they do end up making the 'wrong' decision.

    Hi guys, new here.

    How did you guys get over the feeling that your problems weren't serious enough to seek help?
    Hello and welcome.

    It took me way too long to go about seeking help for my problems - one thing that helped me along the way though was this society. Not only is it full of awesome and supportive people with tons of good advice, but I also found that talking about my problems on here got me used to being more open about them in general, which has helped me when speaking to doctors and the like.

    Anyone about that wants to distract me?
    I am writing an essay sort of but kind of need something on the side to stop me losing my marbles. I need company basically. As sad as that sounds.

    Netflix is such a good idea. I have it and it cures my boredom.
    Yeah, I guess I'll report back to you at the end of the week! Not really got anything exciting happening either that I can look forward too. :cry:
    What about you?

    Time for bed! Had a fairly good evening, and thinking that this has all probably just been sadness. Will see what GP says sometime next week though, I guess... Feel terrible now actually, but that's probably just tiredness.

    Dammit!! Another night and the birds are twittering in the trees and I'm still not bloody tired. There's nothing in particular getting me down (besides the feeling that the big slide is going to come as it always does). Just can't ever get to sleep at a normal then I have to go to lectures with either zero sleep or maybe just a couple of hours). Need to restart my exercise programme as I always sleep better and longer when I've doing lots of exercise. Nod to self. I'm in agreement. Good plan. Just make sure you bloody do it this time!

    Not trueeee! I've seen how strong you are from the fairly long time we've been chatting. We all struggle, hell... You know how much I struggle myself

    You're not going to ruin everything, the people who care around you won't let you (myself included)

    Love you sister from another mister :penguinhug:
