    So I'm super confused/on edge and (okay, maybe not "super", but :s:)

    Got facebook message today in a group chat that it looks as if the lake district camping thing is next Tuesday (next week on tuesday)

    But I have my degu to rehome before I can go anywhere, and just so sad and not sure it's even sunk in yet that he needs to go Known him for 5 years, and I just didn't think I'd have to say goodbye to him forever, knowing that he'll still be around/that I won't know how he is/know that he's okay.

    I think that he could definitely find a better owner than me, I'm not that great/not the best for keeping him entertained and such, and I know that - plus when I'm away at Uni he doesn't get much interaction either, and it's unfair on my parents to have to look after him while I'm away.

    But at the same time I just don't want to say good bye

    Can either rehome at a Pets @ Home near us, where he'll be in a small (like tiny compared to his current home (maybe 1/10 or smaller the size) though that said he is in a pretty big cage right now) cage while on display/for people to see him/hopefully adopt him - I don't know how long for (need to find out) - but he'll get a lot more attention/new faces so maybe it wouldn't be so bad - also easy/not as stressful for him to transport him there.

    Or there's a blue cross animal centre near where I used to live that takes degu's - and they just seem more clued up possibly, and I don't know how big a cage you can keep him in, but I think they just keep them in normal cages, and I'd guess I could take him/donate a part of the cage he's in currently (too big for all of it to go in the car, and separates into two cages)
    But that's a long car journey away - which I think would be quite stressful for both of us - particularly a small animal.


    I'm just so confused, and don't know what's best to do, and also just stressed about going away with friends as well. I think it'll be fun but if I've just said goodbye to my friend I won't be the best anyway, plus not been in the best of moods recently/will be possibly hard to get space.

    Though at the same time I think I've been wanting to actually do something with myself this summer, so perhaps I just need to get saying goodbye over with (I hope that doesn't sound callous, just that I've been putting it off for ages/should probably have done it at the start of summer - given him the best chance of being rehomed quickly :sad:) and then have some fun/a nice end to the summer + being away from home should help me sort of come to terms with things better maybe? Though maybe I should do camping with friends and then solo-camping or something.

    I just don't know

    Sorry for the massive long ramble, and I appreciate it if you're read this far. :hugs:

    Also sort of dying a bit here with Auntie over I think. Still a whole week (well, ~6 days to go?) of them/different friends here, and then mum and dad will be back and I'm sort of dreading that too
    Particularly as I've done nothing while they've been away, haven't really sorted any Uni stuff either- and with Uni coming up they'll be more naggy. Also haven't sorted internet yet for new house/housemates not replying to the email I sent them and argh
    Also just the idea of Uni in general and GP/doctors just stressing/worrying me as it is

    GP:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Like I sort of wonder if I'm trying too hard to get diagnosed or something, and that if I get diagnosed then I won't believe it because I'm constantly rambling/moaning about how hard things are/how stressed I am or whatever when I sort of think I'm really not that bad? I just don't know


    Sorry again for ramble Eurgh.

    Sorry, thanks
    Might play a game of scrabble or something with people if others wanted to, but I think AoE would be too much for me tbh Partly just it being a full-screen thing possibly/being real-time If that makes any sense.
    :hugs:

    edit: Though actually maybe don't worry about scrabble sorry Might get sleep soon If anybody needed to play then I would still

    What's going on with this app?

    Not really, odd socks. Think I've found the one bed that I find comfortable. Probably not cheap and nasty. Which sucks because while other beds aren't unbearable I can't lay back without having to shift, it seems.

    How are you? I'm getting pretty bored with no one to talk to.

    Yays for umbrella guy/you I like rain sometimes, but not when it's pissing down :/ (and preferably when I have a coat/something that won't get soaked )

    Hope bar-ness goes okay - Really hope you enjoy it, have some fun :woo: Though I can appreciate scariness :eek:

    Edit: Realise I missed your other post I'm afraid I don't properly have any advice because I don't know enough (well, anything ) about meds really, but I just thought I'd send :hugs:/wishes that this one works out/helps a lot - and hopefully side effects aren't too severe.
    I guess they can't properly know long-long term side effects, but I guess they wouldn't be using it/have it certified if they didn't think that the overall benefit was better than any possible side effects? :dontknow:

    Yeah, generally I don't mind rain but it was cold rain today so I was shivering. Definitely appreciated umbrella guy. The bar was ok, I didn't speak too much but enjoyed just being around people and of course the cider

    Thanks for the encouragement. I've been giving it some thought and reckon I am going to try this drug. Right now things just seem to be getting more difficult every day so, despite the side effects, I'm willing to try something new if it means quiet.


    About your degu...my mum gave my cat away when I was younger because she couldn't stand him bringing in half-dead mice all the time. It was horrible saying goodbye to something that meant so much to me and even now I still hope that he went to a good home. I'd say that you should take him to the shelter not pets at home, it sounds like you really care for your degu so I think you should put him somewhere that actually knows what they're dealing with. Pets at home never felt particularly caring when I've been in their stores.

    Haha Yeah that's true I go in and out of the routine of writing in it - still got exams/the first half of this summer to fill in, if I do :eek:


    Great oh awesome - signed thing is definitely cool! Really want my guitar capo signed by my favourite band
    Ah :/ Hopefully not too badly


    Just being up and down a lot, and just a bit lost Summer drawing to a close/Uni coming up/haven't done anything/saying goodbye to my pet (having to rehome him )

    Good What've you been up to? :eek: Did results go alright? (I can't remember if you'd said or not? )
    :hugs:


    I've just realised - is it your birthday today? :eek: Or just soon? Happy Birthday either way/for when it is! :woo: :party:

    You are a lovely person Luno, completely good and completely decent :yep: I always enjoy chatting with you, and you're not a failure at all either :eek:
    I sometimes feel as though I've missed out on life stuff But I think sometimes that stuff is maybe overrated/doesn't matter too much if you miss it. (Of course what we've missed may be different/maybe I don't understand you completely :dontknow: I hope that made some sort of sense though Maybe.)

    I'm sorry things are bad for you at the moment Can definitely understand wanting to carry on walking forever/just escaping completely (if that's what you mean? ) Quite often last summer, and a few times at Uni went on some walks just wandering randomly, and would often have gone a fair way/should be turning back - and then just start thinking "I just want to carry on/not turn back home" :hugs:

    I know that this might not help that much, because I don't think you had the funnest of times with your degree (?) But you did do amazingly well with your degree (Like 67% or something? IIRC?) I also know that for me having the lectures/work to do sort of helps me - though at the same time stress doesn't, but I think doing nothing can sometimes be harder to cope with than having a schedule?

    Not an idiot lovely :hugs: I'd maybe say try to get a GP appointment or something, or inform Uni/try and get support - and as wolfie said if a year out's the best thing to do then think about it/maybe do that :dontknow:

    Big :hugs:



    I think colleges/sixth forms can sometimes just be really disorganised - I know that ours was for a lot of things
    Hope it's alright :hugs:


    Very fancy :eek: Just stick to the 2 or 3 people like glue Hope you have fun :jumphug:

    Edit: (Just realised that while I wrote this earlier today, I'm posting it now when you're probably already gone out :facepalm: (:banghead:) I hope you have a really nice time )


    1:1 Sounds horrible In my thoughts - I hope things improve for you soon/that they start helping.


    :hide: I blame the scrabble last week

    I keep getting to sleep around 3am, then getting up at 10 or 11 - I swear that that should be enough! :eek: :dontknow: Tempted to have a nap or something now, but don't know

    Duck zombies are the best sorts of zombies :loveduck:


    Hope the hen do goes okay Can you take yourself away from the action for a bit/recover/recharge mid-way through? I'm sorry your gf's not being nice about it :console:


    Sounds really great Glad you're more relaxed - Hope the interview gets sorted/goes okay!


    I'm not sure whether to try watching DS9 or not - or whether to try and go through all of TNG and Voyager instead? Watched a fair amount of both of them, but probably still less than half (at least for Voyager, anyway) :dontknow:


    :eek: Good luck! :woo: How've you been?


    Curry. :sick:

    :hi:

    (also :blush: for being quoted How're you doing? )
    :hugs: Sorry I don't have any advice
    I would suggest watching TNG ans then following it with DS9 as it makes most sense that way. Voyager is more or less a stand-alone with regards to story arc so you can watch that whenever.

    Still on 1:1

    I don't know why they won't let me sleep. The noise and light at night are so much. I kept falling asleep and they woke me up each time. Some massive guy came and shook me at midnight to take meds which was a bit scary.

    I'm refusing meds at the moment but from what they've said I have until Tuesday and they will force meds, probably depot and I think they are going to give me depixol which I don't want. They don't seem to have a clue what they are doing with treatment though. They offered ECT as an option and I am thinking I might take that cos I am scared of depixol and generally stopping and starting strong drugs cos they don't know what they're doing. It is just going to **** me up physically and mentally.

    Has anyone had ECT?

    :eek: I thought I'd missed a reply to you - just found your post in another tab

    Sounds busy! No need to apologise though! Where do you work? (If you don't mind me asking - perfectly cool if not)
    Awesome :gah: I used to drive an older citroen C3, but parents changed cars Not sure I like this one as much, but then I haven't driven it much/not used to it. Yeah need to drive too Good Yays you're excited tooo! (Though sorry for anxiety too :console:)

    Exactly! Oh yeah! Well we have one sharing block, though it's only if the Uni/accomodation's been oversubscribed - and only if you're unlucky really Though it's only for a single term that you share - then they sort you out somewhere else not shared

    Haha, thanks :lol: I've never even heard of that show I'm not the biggest chilli fan tbh, though there weren't any kidney beans, so that's a plus Though was too hot/spicy for me really :sad: (Me + spicy = :nah: ) Still nice though Did you have a nice restaurant meal?

    Haha Oh That doesn't sound very fair or nice at all - you've done amazingly! :eek:

    Don't be disgusted! :hugs: Rubbish days are rubbish :sadnod: What film? Hope so too


    Thanks, was sort of nice, though didn't have much me-time, and now slightly panicked by something else Will probably rant about it in a sec. Bleh.
    haha its okay, its me who took ages to reply! I just work in a charity shop on friday afternoons, it can get a bit stressful when customers are rude
    my mom has a toyota aygo, which i think is pretty much the same car, just a different make! I really should make an effort to drive, because I do want too but, at the same time, I’m not doing too well, and i don’t know where to drive/drivers make it so stressful!

    yeah i am excited about uni, but its coming round waaaay too fast, like its only a month or so until I’m leaving and its crazy! i think id rather go private than share my room…i definitely need my own space. Thats another thing I’m kinda worried about, living with so many people and not getting any ‘me time’, cos i don’t wanna look antisocial, but i need to recharge my batteries sometimes!

    hahah i love killer kids, I’m into all things murder-y (only because i want to be a homicide detective, I’m not a closet murderer ) so I’m so sad that no one has finished uploading season 3 yet :lol: #firstworldproblems or what? yeah I’m not a spicy food person either, but i just don’t like chilli at all, I’m pretty fussy when it comes to food yes i did thank you, had gammon and eggs and then this toffee popcorn sundae mmm :coma:

    thank you, she kept going on about how other people didn’t learn as much as i did for psychology and I’m like, and thats why no one else got an A* isn’t it? idiot -.-

    I ended up watching fingerprints (a horror, surprise surprise ) but I’ve seen it before :lol: what’s wrong? :hugs:

    Oooh, we do all like a bit of good news What's yours?

    Sorry to hear you're a bit tired :console:
    For some reason I don't think people understand when I don't get enough sleep I'm really irritable. I'm a grumpy *******. I'm called up when I'm dead to the world? I open my eyes long enough to answer the phone and then my eyes are closed again, I don't even raise myself from the bed, I want this phone call over as soon as possible - not having to explain the simplest things about computers or whatever when I'm too tired to be awake. I got to sleep early-ish last night. Didn't last long - woke after about 2 hours, stayed awake for another 3 or 4 hours and got 2 odd more hours.

    Nothing amazing but I think the good news was I was at the gig, right at the very front of the barriers, touched one or two band members which is always awesome. Second time I've done that with this band now. Bought a limited edition poster AND got it signed by the frontman later on. So the plan is to get it framed and now I'll have two pieces of decoration for my bedroom - two limited edition music posters.

    Because by an abuse of power, psychiatrists get away with your telling them that you don't think they can help as a sign of illness or illogical thinking. Even if it is out of personal experience and it is an intellectual decision. Psychiatry is like a religion except heathens are treated as mentally unsound.

    I know many people here have got better with medication but I wonder how many actually got better in spite of treatment rather than with the aid of it. I know my mind spontaneously heals itself
