    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.
    :eek: Yeah not good :nope: I always picture america as being hot every day, or snowing every day - is this not true?
    Glad you had a good time

    Hope it works out for you :hugs:

    Thanks for advice/encouragement I'm also not convinced about [email protected] - while I think having him in a shop/with lots of people will keep him interested, the cage/place they keep them just seem too small. Will give them a call still possibly/might not have a choice.
    Partly just worried because it's a 3 hour drive to the shelter - not sure if the stress of the journey (for pumpernickel) would outweigh the stress of a small cage :dontknow: I suppose I'd be more comfortable having the long journey/having him in the shelter. Just that they'd probably care for him more while he's there. (Plus people visiting there will be there specifically to adopt an animal, rather than just get a pet?) Sorry for the ramble I really appreciate you reading all that from before though, too

    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.
    Didn't realise they linked in/followed I suppose time-wise I knew they did Will maybe watch an episode each night or something when I'm back at Uni

    sickeningly anxious. really really bad. haven't slept at all the last 2 nights. I ****ing wish someone could come and make this stop. having weird intrusive thoughts and I just want it to stop

    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:
    Ah cool That makes me surprised customers would be rude in a charity shop though! :eek: :sad: I used to volunteer/work in one for my DofE, but luckily was upstairs in the stock room just sorting books :hide:
    Ah yeah, they're similar They're really small If you're not feeling well then don't feel as though you need to! :console:

    Haha, agree that it feels quite close now Yeah I'm not sure how I would've felt sharing a room Was cheaper I guess :dontknow: Though that said living at home now with relatives here is sort of horrible for having my own space - and they don't even come into my room that much! :eek: I'd say you're generally fine for getting your own time? At least I think I did just about - you have a lock on your door/can just stay there when you need it - I'd say first term people seemed to be out and about more, but gradually people start spending more time in their room?
    I spent a lot of periods in the terms sort of just hiding when I've been bad - people did I suppose notice/asked "Where have you been Phil?" well, "people" being friends across the corridor Found it annoying/scary when they noticed sort of, but I mean it was okay
    (Though as I say all this - do be careful to not hide too much, which I think is what I did probably :dontknow: Probably still will next year too)

    Haha Of course, of course :eek:
    Hehe ooo gammon and eggs is awesome - I should probably order it next time I'm at a pub/restaurant

    Sorry she's been like that :/ Not exactly encouraging of her :unimpressed:

    :lol: I can't watch horror things at all - get too scared/paranoid after watching things like that. At least if it's night-time/dark. :hide:

    See earlier spoilered long post/ramble It's fine, just I don't know. :sad: (though it is quite a ramble so don't worry about it )
    :hugs:

    god, you can always tell i've had a bad night because i wake up and my sheets are all over the floor and my muscles ache dealing with bad bad thoughts late into the night, i don't wanna do this every night

    random thought at 2am last night - why is it that when cancer patients stop fighting the cancer they're transferred to a doctor who specialises in helping them die, but when a depressed patient does that they get sectioned?
    :hugs:
    Spoiler:
    Show
    Is a fair thought

    I would say it's because a terminally ill cancer patient is going to die. Whereas a depressed patient doesn't have to/their death can be prevented - They can still recover and get better. (Even if that can be incredibly difficult)

    :dontknow:

    I hope that that makes sense

    okay so i MAY have a job which is good because money etc but im terrified because in my previous jobs i've got because of my mental health i've just left and not turned back up, and i really don't want to do it with this one, i wish i didn't have to go through crap like this
    Spoiler:

    Well done on getting the job!
    Could you at some point tell your boss/employer that you're struggling with MH stuff/get support with it here? I don't know how easy that is to do/can imagine it just being difficult telling someone like that. Don't know, just a small thought I hope you enjoy it :hugs:

    Yays for seeing light That sounds really good Glad your Dad wasn't too bad about it either.

    :eek: That's awesome!! Very exciting news :yep: Going into a shared house this year myself and I didn't even think of that though :facepalm:
    Yays though - I guess you'll be looking at places soon enough, too? We left it far too late last year (Though luckily did eventually find somewhere nice!)

    Well done Yeah sorry I realise I probably don't know/can't appreciate just how scary it must be to start new meds (not having been on any myself) - I hope it works out well/helps though.
    Thanks Had a bit of a hit/panicking slightly (though sort of ignoring it ) :dontknow: It sounds as though you're very good today (?) :woo:

    It's nice, I've enjoyed it so far Love the campus partly just because of the duck ponds/lake
    Likewise! :hugs:

    I might have, yeah! Haha I've only ever played Sims 1 Should maybe get sims 2 at some point, though I tried to a while a go, and it crashed - though that was an old computer. Part of the reason I like sims 1 is that I have all the expansions (or at least I did, might have gotten rid of some ) Sims 4 will be on sale at some point though, I'm sure!

    Not much Spent today with grandparents and Auntie/Cousin, was nice, though anxious starting. Not had much time to myself unforunately - but oh well Really glad that today's been good for you (?)


    Frozen? They're the only disney songs I properly know :getmecoat: (besides a few)


    Thank you so much.
    I'm super excited, I've never moved house in my life and to move in with my boyfriend and feel safe every night will be amazing. I don't feel safe when my boyfriend goes home because my dad goes to work in the very early mornings and I get scared and then im home alone until early evening.
    That's so cool, are you excited? We've been looking a little bit today, we don't know if we're getting a house or flat. Depends on how many people. But found a really nice house. I'm glad you found somewhere nice.

    Don't be sorry at all, you've done nothing wrong! Thanks. What happened? Did anything trigger it? I hope you're feeling better now. :hugs: I was really good yesterday thank you. Didn't take my meds again.. Ugh. I'm paranoid of starting them.

    That's really good. Aww I love ducks. They're so adorable, I want a pet duck. :hugs:

    That's so cool, the expansions look good but so expensive. I may have to get sims 4 if it goes on sale.

    Sounds lovely that you've been around your family. How come you were anxious? I hope the anxiousness passed. I hope you have more time to yourself today. Some me time.

    I lovee frozen. I enjoy singing along to the soundtrack.

    no no, you make complete sense, i'm simply questioning the reasoning behind it. why is there refusal in the whole body of medicine to accept that mental illnesses are fatal?

    in medical journals, textbooks, articles, everywhere i read i see that people die from an overdose rather than depression, malnutrition rather than anorexia, jumping off a building instead of schizophrenia. why is it so much harder to write cause of death = depression than it is to write cause of death = cancer ???

    the sooner people accepted that you die from mental illnesses the sooner we can move on from this whole stupidly positive "everything is recoverable" mindset and move towards a more practical "maybe its not recoverable but it sure is liveable" mindset?

    oh people do! Yesterday this woman stormed out because i told her that we only did exchanges and don’t offer credit notes, which a sign on the till clearly states. She told me to **** off as she did so…another woman also called out manager a miserable cow because she wouldn’t lower the price of a teapot by £5 (its a brand that you can’t buy anymore, and is actually worth a lot more than the price tag!). The woman started the conversation by saying ‘can i be cheeky and ask’ and then ended up being rude even though she basically said at the start she was sure they’d say no! She went on about how her dad was cared for by the hospice that the charity shop is for, surely thats MORE reason to pay the actual price. I honestly feel like saying ‘would you go into marks and spencers next door and ask them for a discount?’ i think not. It makes me so angry how people treat you in there sometimes like, I’m not even paid to put up with your **** -.- sorry for the rant :lol:

    yeah, they are small, but i prefer that to a large car, especially for the moment i reaaaaally want a cream fiat 500 someone get me one for christmas haha!

    I know, only a month till i go now and haha i definitely wouldn’t want to do it, you’d have to arrange a bed time, and then if someone came in from a night out and you were in bed you’d get woken up no matter how quiet they were being! I definitely know its not for me haha! Yeah, I’m gonna make an effort, especially for the first few weeks, but i will definitely be needing some ‘me time’ at some point! I don’t plan on telling anyone about my mental health, because I’m gonna try my hardest to keep it under wraps and deal with it myself, I’m hoping it’ll be less of a problem than it was during A levels, fingers crossed, so i hope no one notices

    hahah oh shush you I do genuinely enjoy that program a hell of a lot though, so I’m sad that no ones uploaded it :lol: and oh yeah, it was soooo nice, i love me some gammon!

    Yano, barely anyone i know, both irl and online, like horror films so i end up having to watch them alone in the dark, and none of them are ever scary I’m yet to find one that actually scares me or whatever, which makes me sad :lol:

    I can’t find your spoilered rant (I’m probably being a dozy cow and not looking properly) i hope you’re okay though :hugs:

    Thank you so much.
    I'm super excited, I've never moved house in my life and to move in with my boyfriend and feel safe every night will be amazing. I don't feel safe when my boyfriend goes home because my dad goes to work in the very early mornings and I get scared and then im home alone until early evening.
    That's so cool, are you excited? We've been looking a little bit today, we don't know if we're getting a house or flat. Depends on how many people. But found a really nice house. I'm glad you found somewhere nice.

    I lovee frozen. I enjoy singing along to the soundtrack.
    You've never moved?! :eek: Yeah, not the nicest being in the house alone for all that time. Yay though Sort of, I think I'd rather I was still on campus - will be in a city now/won't be able to go out for 2am strolls when I just need to escape - well I will, but won't be such scenic surroundings Good I'd personally go for a house if you could - though I suppose if it was just the two of you then flat might be more sensible

    Got a message from a friend about a proposed camping trip they'd been talking about - apparently they're planning to start this coming tuesday :eek: and I was looking forward to it/don't want to let them down/not see them, but will have to organise stuff for that (got to rehome pet :sad:) Just hmm Feeling a bit better thanks Rang an animal shelter/on a waiting list. - and had a drive, so have gotten out
    :console: Just try and think of all the benefits you could have from going onto them, maybe? From the sounds of things side effects are only for the first few weeks or so - though I know that still isn't great/make everything perfect, but :hugs: Don't beat yourself up about it, though.

    They are the most awesome animal :yep: I want one too :puppyeyes: Last year in tesco's a man had left his pet duck outside in a box, while he went to do the shopping He just sat there and quacked :lol:

    For Sims 1? Can get them pretty cheap 2nd hand I think Haha, I thought so

    Just generally having people to talk to/having to go out/eat with them at a cafe - brain just being silly I guess Yeah, passed eventually thanks Was nice seeing them in the end Thanks - bought some pens in sainsbury's

    I think I scared my family knowing all the words when I watched it with them It is good :yep:

    Is that not the mindset already? Maybe they need to just widen that for different severities of conditions and things :dontknow: I guess would be best to be as practical as possible - but at the same time I think with certain MH conditions (mild depression (?)), that a wholey positive mindset, that it's recoverable is helpful and true (I hope ) - which is extra important to have where it is recoverable because often you can think it will never end. I know you probably aren't meaning that though :dontknow:

    From what I've read in just newspaper bits and pieces at least people do mention depression and such as a factor for someone's death, though I guess they should be putting more emphasis on it - as it's one of the biggest killers :dontknow:

    All that said I don't really know much/anything about how the medical profession labels stuff like that I'd hope they take it seriously. Sorry, not being much help I just think that there is a distinction between helping a terminally ill patient who's going to die, and helping someone who's death can be prevented. :dontknow:

    :eek: That sounds horrible! Teapot lady just sounds annoying :/ Particularly as generally in charity shops you're already getting a good deal! (Apart from CDs/DVDs sometimes... ) Yeah that's really unfair I mean it's horrible enough in any shop - but a charity shop with volunteers/profits going to help people especially! No need to apologise Sounds like a stressful shift.

    Yeah, probably same I went for a drive to sainsbury's today, just to get out (Bought some more pens, and a notebook :teeth: I'm not really sure why... Can colour in with these ones though ()) I realised I really can't reverse in this car though always stall for some reason/can't go back just on the clutch for some reason :dontknow: I guess it's just a lower clutch than the last car. Haha yeah the fiat 500 is a nice car £60 Bag or Fiat 500?

    Yeah I'm sure you will - You won't be the only one getting me-time though, so don't worry about it I did the same really, though only realised MH-ness last year anyway I'd try to tell someone though if you can - if you can find someone you can trust - I only had one person at Uni who knew (they'd gone to the same sixth form) and found it sort of difficult - talking in person to someone can really help (at least I've found it helpful sort of) (Though at the same time she's probably not the best person I could have told, but at the same time she's the only person I felt comfortable at all telling. Anyway....)
    I hope it's better for you at Uni, too :hugs:

    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:

    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.
    Thank you for reading through if you did :hugs: Though at the same time I understand if you don't

    feeling rather tired of everything/one right now :/
    Anything particularly up? Doctor Who on at the moment? (oh it's probs finished, though I haven't watched it yet )
    :hugs:


    -----------------------

    Vaguely got it more sorted today with degus/stuff, well not entirely - still haven't told them if I'm going or not/what's happening But I rang the pet charity/home and they put me on their waiting list - they reckoned that it might be better for him there, so think I will take him there if I can Though I'm not sure when they'd be able to take him Tidied my room a bit this afternoon, so if need be I could possibly leave my Auntie to look after him while I go see friends - hopefully, anyway Still sad though but a bit less stressed now I suppose. Maybe. :dontknow: Think I'm just up and down a lot recently Probably getting worse as Uni gets closer/summer comes to an end :sad:

    so not spoken to my dad in like over a year, and not seen him in like 3 years, but i need to talk/meet up with him in september. but gonna sound like a massive ***** when i first ask to meet him. surely i cant be like
    "so dad im up north in september, wanna meet for a coffee, oh and btw can you bring what my granny left me in her will 3 years ago please. cheers"
    can i??

    It's his fault for leaving it that long to give you what your granny left you, I'd say? I'd definitely tell him to bring it - it's your money, and as you don't see him often it's important you get it really - even if I realise it might not be the funnest conversations to have possibly.

    just spoken to my sister about it (was gonna ask if we could meet him together so its not totally awkward) and she said shes spoken to him about it, and he wont give us the item untill were married.
    it angers me SO much that he can decide this, what if i dont ever get married, and IF i do, he wont be invited anyway...
    i want what my granny left me, not him have it.
    im so angry right now it kinda hurts

    Today I met a pug puppy and it was carrying a stick that was as big as itself and it came over to say hi to me and it was so cute! I really wish I had a puppy :puppyeyes:

    :eek: Yeah not good :nope: I always picture america as being hot every day, or snowing every day - is this not true?
    Glad you had a good time

    Hope it works out for you :hugs:

    Thanks for advice/encouragement I'm also not convinced about [email protected] - while I think having him in a shop/with lots of people will keep him interested, the cage/place they keep them just seem too small. Will give them a call still possibly/might not have a choice.
    Partly just worried because it's a 3 hour drive to the shelter - not sure if the stress of the journey (for pumpernickel) would outweigh the stress of a small cage :dontknow: I suppose I'd be more comfortable having the long journey/having him in the shelter. Just that they'd probably care for him more while he's there. (Plus people visiting there will be there specifically to adopt an animal, rather than just get a pet?) Sorry for the ramble I really appreciate you reading all that from before though, too
    Generally yes, very hot or very cold, but occasionally there are huge storms where I live.

    I don't know if you can do this with degus but for cats you can ask a vet for a mild sedative if they're going to be traveling anywhere at length. That could help with minimizing stress for pumpernickel (love the name ).

    That's outrageous! Insulting to your granny in part, and I'm pretty sure that's illegal isn't it? To keep stuff from a will
    I'd be angry too! :hugs: Are you still meeting up with him/with your sister?

    Ah okey Yeah I suppose america's always getting bad storms in the news and things - and then we seem to get a miniature version of them a few weeks later :lol:

    I might ask Dad then (he used to be a vet) I'm not sure whether you'd be able to properly or not, just because they're quite small/sedatives are semi-dangerous I guess, will ask though, thanks Looking up stuff to make travel easier for pets/degus, found some tips so hopefully it'd be okay. Annoyed for leaving this late sort of
    and thanks Stole it from a Sesame Street podcast where they talked about the bread :teehee: His brother was Poppadom :yep:

    :eek: That sounds horrible! Teapot lady just sounds annoying :/ Particularly as generally in charity shops you're already getting a good deal! (Apart from CDs/DVDs sometimes... ) Yeah that's really unfair I mean it's horrible enough in any shop - but a charity shop with volunteers/profits going to help people especially! No need to apologise Sounds like a stressful shift.

    Yeah, probably same I went for a drive to sainsbury's today, just to get out (Bought some more pens, and a notebook :teeth: I'm not really sure why... Can colour in with these ones though ()) I realised I really can't reverse in this car though always stall for some reason/can't go back just on the clutch for some reason :dontknow: I guess it's just a lower clutch than the last car. Haha yeah the fiat 500 is a nice car £60 Bag or Fiat 500?

    Yeah I'm sure you will - You won't be the only one getting me-time though, so don't worry about it I did the same really, though only realised MH-ness last year anyway I'd try to tell someone though if you can - if you can find someone you can trust - I only had one person at Uni who knew (they'd gone to the same sixth form) and found it sort of difficult - talking in person to someone can really help (at least I've found it helpful sort of) (Though at the same time she's probably not the best person I could have told, but at the same time she's the only person I felt comfortable at all telling. Anyway....)
    I hope it's better for you at Uni, too :hugs:

    Poor Laura :console: They're always scary!! :eek:


    Thanks :hugs:
    She was just an utter *****, but of course I just have to stand there and take it :/ it always feels like a personal attack as well, even though I know it's not -.- and I know, even our cds and dvds are only a pound!

    Ooh well at least it's something! I still haven't been anywhere, so I'd better go tomorrow :/ oooooh stationary :love: I still haven't bought any :cry2: I think I've only reversed once out of the drive. It went decently but I don't really like reversing, I always get those spaces where I can drive in and drive out haha. In this car I tend to do anything to avoid stalling so it ends up revving a bit sometimes, I even managed to make that horrible squeaky sound once hahaha oops! Ooh I'd MUCH rather have a Fiat 500, but the bag is more practical with uni haha

    I know, I think I'm just generally panicking about it all because it seems to have come around really quick! I started getting anxiety when I was about 12 on holiday, as well as my emetophobia, and I think the depression developed soon after as a sort of consequence of those? Nobody at school or anything has ever known, and I've never had an official diagnosis, because of bad experiences with doctors, so idk how it will pan out. I'm hoping I won't need to tell anyone. I'll also have to figure out who to trust, which could take a while I guess because you need to get to know someone first! At least you had someone to tell I guess

    :lol: :lol: oh dear! Naaaaaah they're never scary
    You know where I am if you need me :jumphug:

    were not sure if this is written in the will or not, as we have never seen a copy. but i call bull****.
    i reckon hes just trying to have a hold over his kids over something, as he lost me as a daughter at 6 months old.
    i probably should, well just use my nephew as a decoy and get him to throw stuff at my dad
