    Ah, thanks for the help. How would you get someone diagnosed if they refuse to go to the gp?
    No one can be officially diagnosed without it being done by a GP or a psychiatrist (and in this country, the usual route to a psychiatrist is through one's GP) :nah: Edit: I suppose theoretically a hospital A&E doctor could diagnose it, though they would usually call in the on-call psychiatrist to assess the patient, if the depression was that bad that someone had ended up in A&E...

    Well then i'm ****ed
    See my edit, though ending up in A&E due to depression is not an ideal route :nope:

    Do you suspect you're depressed? What makes you reluctant to see a GP?

    :hugs: thank you, I try to tell myself that but on nights when I'm feeling vulnerable it gets me to :sadnod:

    Part of me worries that I'm just deluding myself, that I'm not really and I'm just fooling myself to make myself more interesting and I dunno, I guess I'm just not sure of anything these days. Thanks for the offer but I don't want to bother you :nah:

    goodnight :lovehug:

    Ah right, my bad, sorry

    What makes you think it could be depression that they're suffering from? And why do you think they won't see a GP? Are they not admitting that they have a problem?

    Which one? I don't actually remember what post it was. I just hope they don't throw a devil paper on us like f324. I find f325 a lot easier, more maths and don't have to memorise crappy mechanisms and whatnot. Wbu?

    Mood swings, crying for hours, long periods of silence, i don't even know. I don't know anything about depression. Something like that

    Getting train back to Cambridge, feel so light headed. Not sure why, probably blood pressure dropped at some point. Was planning to do some knitting or writing on train but felt almost travel sick when I tried that on the train to London so the new plan is to try eatingg something and see if that helps. Also really hoping the rain has stopped by the time I get there.

    I can see why you're worried. If it helps, websites like the official NHS website and the mental health charity Mind have good factsheets/web pages on different mental health conditions, including depression:

    http://www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Depress...roduction.aspx

    http://www.mind.org.uk/information-s.../#.VXtXjEY0_J8

    Have a read of those and see what you make of them. From your brief description, it could well be a mental health condition of some kind and it's generally (as a rule of thumb) better to nip a mental health condition in the bud, before it becomes full-blown or develops into something more long-term/serious :sadnod:

    I'm afraid I really must sleep now but I hope you find the factsheets a bit useful. I'm working tomorrow and then drinks party afterwards but will reply to any posts in the evening

    thanks for the messages.

    I've been in what I can only describe as emotional agony for the last 8 hours. I don't think ive experienced anything worse and I don't think I ever anticipated having such a horrible reaction. not one person I've spoken to has done worse than me. or even nearly as badly. If I deserved what I got last year then I feel like I deserved better this year. I really do. I am still in agony though more drained. I don't even know what to do or how im ever going to face the shame of having to tell my parents what a ****ing stupid disgrace of a daughter I am.

    You're not a disgrace and you didn't deserve what you got last year, or whatever you've got this year. You're clearly very intelligent and bright - your A Level grades and the fact you got those, despite being ill, say as much. You've just been systematically let down by people at uni, ranging from welfare to your own tutor. Under these circumstances and with the level of illness, no one could have expected much more from you. So you are not stupid and you are NOT a disgrace :nah:

    I need to sleep but please try and stay safe. Do whatever you can to ground yourself - name all the colours you can see, say the alphabet backwards aloud, plunge your hand into ice water, etc. Remember he can't get at you anymore :hugs:

    I'm not entirely sure what you mean here by informed choices, but good luck nonetheless!
    I meant, that I have to do some research before making an decision and now I have them, but probably I will have some panic, soon.

    I'm not great. Just spent an hour and a half on the phone sorting out my bank account with voices trying to get my attention the whole time. But at least it's sorted now. Time for a delicious cup of tea.
    Wow, that is something. I shoudl also care about that... What kind of tea? European style or Asian style?

    Weired, watching prison movies in one litte dorm room...
