    I have a Dr appointment on Monday to see if they will let me try meds combined with therapy for my anxiety/depression. I last had either about four years ago and didn't stick with them for long the first time, so I'm determined to give them a proper shot this time and hopefully make some lasting improvements.

    I really want to go on and do a masters degree after this one, but the amount of stress, anxiety etc it is causing me makes me very wary of putting myself through an intense year of study. :/

    I feel a bit overwhelmed, but I manage to speak to the deputy and head of department about me and my fragile little world today and they said they'll try their hardest to help through it all. You have no idea how much that meant to me!! It's not one of them times where I talk about my life n'all and they're like "what a shame" and sweep it under a rug. These two people have said they'll give me meetings with them and we can chat and help me out with some future shenanigans and everything.

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! :hugs: For all.

    They still haven't fixed the light, what is their ****ing problem? I had to resort to getting a small torch to use in the bathroom otherwise I wouldn't be able to have a shower, and I really needed it. I am so tempted sometimes to replace the tube myself but I should not have to spend £10 unnecessarily.

    I'm so glad that's worked out so well! Good job on getting the courage to mention it, because it isn't easy to talk about that kinda stuff openly

    Remember it was you that decided to speak about it to try and get help, it was you that found the courage to do it. When you feel low, remember that you can be strong

    On that note, in my first year, our bathroom light was broken for a week or two, I just showered by using a mini-maglight - it was fairly romantic (albeit I was showering by myself )

    Did this again in the house I was in last year, as it had a special lightbulb, so showered during the day or by mini-maglight at night until the landlord replaced it.

    You should pretend you're in a post-apocalyptic zombie wasteland, with no electricity and using only your wits and a sawn-off shotgun to survive. Facing the prospect of near-certain death (and un-death) will soon put your lighting problems into perspective.

    There is no window in the bathroom which is the major problem. Unfortunately I made a mistake though - at Poundland I had the choice between a bike light and another torch which I already have 2 of back home. I went for the bike light because I thought it would be brighter but the body of it just partially disintegrated, and 2 of the 5 LEDs are already dying. Easily the worst quality thing I've ever bought from Poundland :sad:. Although it still works, the button doesn't and the clip snapped easily too.

    Aye - in my last house there was a window, so if I showered during the day I was ok. My first year halls didn't have a window, I am telling you - get a (mini-)maglight; it will make your shower times 200% more romantic - and make you forget the bulb is broken, and make you think about who you want to join you

    I usually stay clear of poundland for things that are not food/drink - their electrical stuff breaks too easily in my opinion. I got my mini-maglight for less than £10, and it has lasted me at least 6 years - possibly as many as 8, I imagine if I had bought poundland torches I would have gone through more than 10 by now.

    Have you tried "sleep hygiene" stuff? If you have and are still having trouble sleeping, have you thought about asking your gp for something? First line might be something like promethazine which isn't addictive (I think you can buy it OTC in Britain).

    I know how frustrating it is when you can't sleep. :console:
