    I haven't no. What they failed to tell me is that the psychiatrists at this new place don't work on Fridays. I hate living in such a tiny town there's only two places. Probably won't see a psychiatrist until July when I finish my class. :sigh:
    Ah that sucks! That's really bad of them!!
    Well it's better than having to travel for miles to see someone I guess?
    Well that sucks!!
    I've still not heard when I'm gonna see one currently
    I'm not a fan of the NHS!!

    I'm actually considering driving to the next town over to see someone, though it's an hour each way so just trying to weigh that up whether it's worth it.

    How long have you been waiting? It took me 8 months to see a psychiatrist on the NHS the second time, it was ****ing ridiculous.

    That's might not be a bad idea, if you can find someone good there.
    An hour isn't terrible (I know it's not ideal) but you've just got to think, this could make me better and change my life!

    Well the first time I waited around 8 months too. I only called them around a month ago so far (had a useless group appointment, and have 4 more now :/ ). Not looking forward to those as they wont help me at all! I'm guessing you didn't end up seeing anyone the second time?
    The NHS isn't very good imo!

    Feeling tired and in a bit of a low mood.

    All of this talk of psychiatrists reminds me, I need to make sure that my latest appointment letter is sent to the right address. Not that I particularly want to see the psychiatrist again.

    I feel exhausted all the time with revision now and tbh I just want to cry. Part of me feels like just giving up but then I know I would never forgive myself if I don't get into my first choice uni.

    Had a really nice holiday in California, just got back yesterday. It was nice to have a break for a bit. Starting work soon for the charity I was doing my university placement with. Bit nervous about it, I will be doing all the assessments for the service and also doing this liaison service with the local CMHTs. It's a lot of work and quite important and I'm worried I'll screw it up :/

    I got my results from uni. On the whole I am happy with them, I got a first overall and I got over the certain percentage I wanted, however I just keep feeling like it wasn't good enough. It's annoying me as I know I should be happy but I just don't feel happy with it.

    I hope everyone is doing okay. Sorry I've been so absent recently.

    Oh yuk, group therapy sounds horrendous. :afraid: Is there no way you can ask your GP for another referral for individual therapy? Are you on medication?

    I did see someone the second time eventually but they wanted me to engage in Freudian dream analysis which I thought was the biggest load of bull**** going (I mean I wouldn't be surprised if she'd talked about the Oedipus complex too).

    A first is really awesome! It's great you got over the percentage you wanted! :five:

    The charity work does sound pretty important, I don't really have any advice except maybe don't be afraid to ask for help. It sounds like a lot of pressure so if you're unsure of something there's nothing wrong with that and asking for a hand.

    Just knowing that I have to wake up early tomorrow to a basically empty house and leave when everyone is still snoring just makes me feel like ****.

    And the fact that I won't get home until like nearly two hours after I finish because buses and be expected to socialise when I'll just want a hot bath and my bed is just going to make me feel even more drained. :sigh:

    Feel quite on edge tonight like I'm about to take a full blown panic any second. Been like this all day but haven't took a full panic just high blips of anxiety. Definitely been feeling better today than over the last few days though

    Tonight Callan asked me to cut his hair from nearly bum length up to a shaggy just above the shoulders length and I did :eek: turned out really nice tbh and woo, I finally have the longest hair out of us for the first time in about 4 years :woo:

    Thanks, but I'm still in that awful zone. Took a shower but didn't help!
    I'll try to keep the guidelines in mind but it's very likely that I'll mess up again so thanks for your patience in advance...
    Wishing you a good night

    Went our drinking because I felt like I needed it. Guess it didn't go well with my medication because I spent 4 hours with my hewad down the toilet until someone took my home. Managed to text some friends some regrettable/honest thinhs and also my phone died and idk the password so I need to wipe it. Should have been a good night with good people, became a ****ing disaster. Already didnt think i could get through exams, wasdn't gonna drink because it'd just make things even harder, but everythings ****ed now.
