    :laugh> Taken a massively long time too, two days short of 6 months currently . Previously we got through threads every 3-4 months.

    How are you feeling today?
    It has taken quite a while with people leaving/hiatuses (sorrrrrry) and just lakc of activity in genera; Yeah the last 3 (I believe) I was in took about 3 months or so. Who's creating the next one?

    I'm feeling a lot brighter now than I did last week where I kinda didn't feel too good How about yourself?

    yeah, they only had 10/60 tablets so told me to pop back in monday (tomorrow) then the slip has on the date and then 11.30am as i picked them up friday at about 4pm im guessing the time is the time they know they will have them in, e.g. after the delivery? as i think that pharmacy is shut on the weekend, so will get the delivery monday morning im guessing :dontknow:
    Delivery will be Monday morning if they are shut at the weekend. I imagine that 11:30 is a guide time for you to pop in, delivery is likely to be fairly soon after opening, but then they need to unpack/sort the delivery and so-on. If it is easier to go earlier, you can pop in and ask if they have them ready, however if you can I will go around noon.

    Quick!? This has been fairly slow in my opinion in comparison the the previous threads Maybe that's just me though
    I think someone who's been a regular deserves that role (cause I haven't) :yep:

    I'm not. And thank you. :hugs: I'm just panicking about everything. And they're telling me to run from it all but I cant. There's nowhere safe to run to.
    :hugs: Running away won't solve anything I'm afraid. Is there anyone around you can talk to/get a hug from? Try and stay calm and don't let the voices get to you (although I appreciate how hard that must be :console:).

    I don't know what to do. I don't know if I can handle uni. I can't even seem to take care of myself most of the time. I'm so stuck. All I ever thought of myself doing is going to uni and getting a good job, but I don't know if I can do it. I don't know if I can even pass this year. I don't think I can manage taking care of myself and my work. It's just too much. I'm too weak to manage everything.
    :console: Are you getting any kind of support from uni? If not I'd strongly recommend seeing your disability support office or personal tutor and saying that you're struggling. And if you already have access to support, make sure you're making full use of it, or ask for something different if it isn't helping. You can make it through uni, and asking for help is not a sign of weakness. :nah:

    Don't run. You're safest where you are at the moment. They're lying to you again, they want to harm you so don't listen to them.
    Decided not to and I've hidden my shoes. They're screaming at me. :cry2:

    Might it be worth talking to your doctor for some kind of therapy or even a change in medication? The "laziness" you're describing could be depression, not bothering to do anything is a symptom. It might be your medication isn't working well. You could also get a doctor's note to give to your uni - that way you can get extensions on work and they won't punish you for missing lectures.
    I dunno really, I did start CBT at one point but the therapist decided that I wasn't stable enough to continue. I also have this bad habit of missing meds every few days or so, I had actually taken all for the last 2-3 days but I've failed again. I struggle to sleep too, my room happens to be quite bright as there are floodlights pointing at the windows :mad: although much better since the beginning as 3 of the 4 have stopped working . Even then I've resorted to covering the window with paper in order to stop the light coming in. I think I will look at getting a doctor's note, although I need to apply for DSA too.

    Sounds good I've been struggling for a while but the last few days have generally shown some improvement. Now tomorrow I have a really long day and I need to make sure I get enough sleep for it.

    :hugs: You're making the right choice not to run. It's awful when they're screaming at you but remember they can't hurt you. They can threaten and shout but there's nothing physical they can do to you, that's why they try to get you to do stuff: only you can hurt yourself not them.

    Antidepressants don't work unless you take them every day. Could you set an alarm to go off every evening to remind you to take them?

    Yes it is but easiness doesn't mean right. Most things with the biggest payoffs are hard.

    I find the time I eat in the evenings is really random, so it is kinda hard to set an alarm. Although I just checked that it can be taken on an empty stomach which was what I was worried about, so I think problem solved .

    How are you doing?

    Is there anything that helps you feel more safe, like snuggling up in a duvet/sleeping bag and pretending to be a worm (not that I ever do that... :worm:)? Or watching ridiculously cute Japanese cartoons, or drinking soup or tea, or looking at silly kitties on youtube, or playing simple-yet-addictive video games...

    Dino Run

    Infectonator

    Ok so those two examples are *slightly* apocalyptic, but they's good games. :yep:

    Depend on the med, then even missing one day can cause a dip - missing multiple days often will reduce their effectiveness drastically. Why do you struggle to take them? Can you set an alarm reminding you to take them?

    In regards to the light, can you ask your hall management for a thicker curtain / blind due to the light?

    Na, it certainly won't be a 'before this time'. Every time me or Wolfy has got a 'we owe you meds' note, it has just been come any time you are free after <day/time> - you can pick them up later in the week assuming you don't need them urgently if you wanted.

    One of the medications I'm on needs to be taken after food so after I eat I take it. It's just a case of getting into a routine then you'll remember. But if it doesn't need to be taken with food I'd advise an alarm of some kind, or even put them next to your toothbrush and when you brush your teeth at night you should remember to take it if it's right there.

    I'm pretty good thanks. Seem to have stumbled upon a medication combo which works well with very few side effects so I'm happy about that.
