    I don't think we're ready for that.

    Come to think of it, I have never worn a costume before.

    I dunno, it's something that is currently killing loads of people, I wouldn't want to joke about it.

    I'm thinking of possibly going as link from zelda

    Made a slight error in judgement by signing up to an assassin's game at uni where you are assigned targets that you have to fake-kill. So there are now three people who are going to be actively trying to find me and I don't know who they are. On the other hand one of my targets lives on my corridor and will be dead shortly. May need to become a hermit for a while.

    :nah: Absolutely the wrong attitude! Lecturers are there to help you learn - if you're trying but not learning, then they're not doing their job right. And if you're not trying every available avenue of help when struggling, you're not doing your job right either!

    Trust me, from both having made it through uni with a metric ton of help from my lecturers, and from having a parent who's a lecturer too, I can tell you that any lecturer/teacher in general worth their salt won't mind giving you extra help in the slightest. They are there to teach you, and by asking for help when you're struggling if anything they'll respect you more! Last week I had the loveliest email from one of my old lecturers who I'd sent a thank you gift - she said she was really proud of me, and that my getting through uni despite my MH problems was a massive victory. :blush:

    So in conclusion: do your best, and you're very unlikely to fail. But doing your best does entail asking for help from the relevant people. It's not a sign of weakness, or your being annoying, it's your using the resources available to get the most out of your degree.
    Yeah I guess you are right. I'm feeling a bit more relaxed about the whole situation now even though it is 2:30am and I need to be awake at 6:30am. I'll see who I can have a quiet word with so that I can explain the situation to them. I just hope that they keep it secret I don't really want my problems broadcast to everybody.

    Entirely possible. I think quite a lot of them can't be cured, only managed with therapy/medication.

    Hmm, I guess I just don't really see it that way. I'm quite a light hearted person. It wouldn't be hurting anyone.

    Link is a great idea! And less complicated as a costume than Zelda.

    Pretty sure that is just in your mind.

    Yeah, that has to do with the different causes. Some are like e.g. down syndrome, you are born with it and can't loose it. Yet, that does not mean, symptomes often vary so much, that for most of those, even if you can't cure them, there are so much other variables, it gives you a lot of possibilities and different outcomes.

    I'd like to think so but I can't be sure.

    -------------------------

    Couldn't face uni today so I've let myself have the day off on the condition that I do as much catch-up work from last week as I can. Not sure how well that's going to work out for me considering I'm still in bed. Sigh.

    I can feel myself slipping back into negative thought patterns about myself and the world and it's worrying me. The heaviness/anxiety in my chest is back as well. I can't relapse, I just can't :cry2:

    Does that help you to believe, that it is largely your own thoughts?

    (Anyway big hugs before I continue talking like a know-it-all. )

    You have to be careful, that you don't fulfill your impression by somehow "overreacting" to negative signals other may have sent to you, which could have been easily forgotten by another reaction by you. Not saying, that you are responsible for everything, but to some extend we actually have it in our own hand.
