    I've got an appointment on Wednesday so I'll keep taking them till then and see what he says. The whole reason I wanted to go on meds was to stop myself missing so many classes at uni but it seems to have backfired! My friend has agreed to go buy me lucozade so that's a positive

    So, for the second time my exciting ATOS ESA appointment has been moved, last time I had 2 days notice, this time they ring me up on the morning. ><
    What a surprising turn of events! :lol: Still, why do today what you can put off till tomorrow?

    Catholic schools DO employ non-Catholic teachers, so hopefully it won't be as awkward as you think. I hate to have to say this to you but I would try and avoid references to your girlfriend, though. Lots of Catholics can be close-minded about these things, unfortunately



    I don't think anyone, Quakers aside, are quite there on same sex marriage, are they? :no:



    I have lots of confidence that you will be great with the students. You're such a great PS Helper and it's the same sorts of skills, so I have faith that you won't be awful - far from it! :hugs:



    No worries

    Oh, I'm definitely staying silent about the girlfriend having situation. I've de-gay-blinged this morning. Off came my uber gay ampersand ring and gayer than gay thumb ring and tonight my ladylove is trying to get my lip ring out of my face.

    They have several placement students and they can't all be Catholic so I'll be okay. I think it's literally just my teenage angst triggering all over again.

    I do love the Quakers. They're such a brilliant bunch and their food is excellent :sogood:

    I'm hoping I can't be too bad. My main worry is how shy I am and I've been super OCD-twitchy recently. I have symmetrical contact OCD so if I get too anxious I'll just look super odd and twitchy. I'm just going to stay positive. I've printed myself out some help sheets, observations sheets and the general information from the school's website so I can refer to it if needed and I just need to smile my way through it.

    Tiz a shame to lose the bling I suppose you can't wear too much jewellery in schools anyway? :dontknow:

    Yeah, I can totally see how it would bring back old memories for you. You are stronger than you think though and I do believe you can get through this

    I do love the Quakers. They're such a brilliant bunch and their food is excellent :sogood:
    I know jack all about Quakers but they do seem a pretty cool denomination, from the little I do know! :yep:

    I was on it for a few months - are you worried about switching onto it or something? It was decent enough for side-effects with me, I just got the sedation (which wore off) and vivid dreams. A lot of other people get an increased appetite with it though.

    It was fantastic for me. I pulled me out of the deepest depression I've ever had and I'd take it again in the heartbeat. It was a little sedating to start but once you find your dosage that definitely wore off for me.

    My only issue was the crazy appetite. I went from being a healthy, 5-a-day veggie monster to an eating peanut butter out of the jar, takeaway every night human lump.

    The weight gain was worth it but I'm having to fight to shift it all now I'm better mentally.

    Thanks for your replies. My main concern is the sedating effect. I need to be able to work in the morning and evening.

    Hmm, going by my experience and that of others on here, that could be tricky for the first few days/week or so. It commonly causes people to sleep up to around 17 hours a day, although you can get used to the drug quite quickly (I think within a fortnight I was able to cope on just a little more sleep than usual).

    Have been reading a thread on here that is so similar to my lifestory that it's surreal/unreal. On the one hand, it's pretty triggering to read but on the other, it kinda makes me feel I've come a long way. Still a long way to go to being over everything that's happened and to forgive, forget and move on, but maybe I'm doing better than I realised

    I've lost all academic ability and I've stopped caring. I don't even know what to do for one of my essays and I'm starting to feel sick with worry that I won't work it out before the deadline.
    It is not lost, just hidden. If you want, I can tell you, how I would/should do it, ... or just chat about it ... just PM

    I decided to take a year out so I've been working away. What I wanted to ask was do you have any ideas what else I could do this year so I haven't *just* worked - I feel like I should do some more interesting things as well, and still find I can feel quite down/bored/anxious on my days off?
    -> Thinking and reading
    -> not feeling anxious on days off
    -> seeing something like an island
    -> sail a large sailing boat
    -> learn an instrument

    Oooh, as in gay priests and bishops? That's pretty good going Though do they support same sex marriages, as opposed to just civil partnerships? :ninja:

    The CoE is very good like that, for sure! Though afaik, it doesn't support same sex marriage anymore than my denomination (Catholicism) does. Not that I'm looking to change denominations - happy where I am - but is always good to know more about others! My RE lessons didn't cover other denominations very well

    At least they discuss it seriously and not as theoretical theological question in the future, but some regions allow to bless them during service, so I would say, they are on a good way. In addition, they support equality before the law, which at least, means that the civil partnership is supported in regard to the rights of the children, etc. But it is very difficult to say, because there exists a lot of regional differences on that matter.
