    :hugs: thanks guys, it's hard not to worry though he apparently only got one functioning valve in his heart so he'll need 3 replacements, and apparently the waiting list means it could be weeks before he gets them

    plus I really want my dad to go for a checkup now incase it's something genetic but he's really stubborn and never goes to the doctors :/
    I know hun, but hell be ok, i do know its hard, i often worry about my uncle, but hospitals know what there doing now!

    Could you talk to your mum about your dad getting a check up? :hugs:

    Big hugs. :console: I'm sure things will be okay, if you need someone to talk to, you can always PM me. Your uncle is in the best place to get help. :yep::hugs:

    -------

    Finally told my best friend on campus about the PTSD (not really anything specific)/depression/what my GP has been saying and also what happened at the CMHT appointment (she didn't know anything at all) and the complaint I've filed against the psychiatrist. And she was so lovely about it, she said she is always around if I need someone to talk to. Still couldn't bring myself to tell her about the ED stuff though, was too scary.

    Brain says she would think I was too fat to have an ED


    All in all I feel a lot better now that someone knows. Almost chickened out though, glad I didn't.

    Last night was probably the worst I've been in terms of risk/bad thoughts since I was in hospital. Thankfully I'm a lot calmer today. Just need to do this bloody essay now :emo:

    Maybe instead of using the words eating disorder, you could just say, I have problems like this and they affect me like this? This will not waken up some prejudice/misinterpretations and on the same time make your pattern of problems more understandable to somebody and you able to talk about it?

    Please, am I worrying about nothing?

    Germ/contamination phobia spoiler..

    I've just cooked some chips on a baking tray, and when I got them off they were a bit stuck so I had to try quite hard. When I sat down, I noticed that some of the silver stuff off the tray (no idea what that is) had come off and was stuck on the chips. Not all of them, just some of them. I THINK I avoided the majority of it, but I didn't notice right away as chips are what I consider a safe food (not much can go wrong with them to be fair) so I don't examine them closely or anything. But when I noticed I put the ones that were clearly dirty to one side and didn't eat them.

    Will I be harmed if I have ingested this stuff? Now, obviously the tray was very hot so I'm not concerned about germs as they would have been killed, but it's the material itself that I'm concerned about. Needless to say I will be throwing the pan away.

    I hate it because I just assume that it's going to poison me, even though a) I don't know if I ate any and b) I don't know if it's harmful or not.

    Help . Give me your opinions. Would you be concerned about it if it was you? (Assuming you don't have the same fear, of course).

    I was discharged from the hospital last night. I'm still very tired and stressed though - it's half term and I have mocks right after, but I have work experience for a couple of days in the half term so I don't have much time to revise, plus I'm just so exhausted and achy

    I would say that you're probably fine. These kind of baking trays often shed flecks of whatever they're made from, it's kind of expected as they age. If it was really that dangerous they wouldn't be allowed to sell it. For what it's worth, a few years ago I'd cook sausages in a cheap tray I got in Wilkinson's, the crap came off everywhere everytime I used it but I'm still here.

    Thank you. I think back now to some of the things I used to do/eat and be completely fine. Before my anxiety about such things. I'd just have things to eat whenever and wherever without washing my hands. Now I use alcohol hand rub before touching any kind of food, and I wash my hands before eating anything at home. So if someone offers me a crisp (not that I'd do it if their hand had been in the bag first) I would have to go and wash my hands before accepting it. I just wish I could get it out of my head.

    Possibly, hadn't thought of doing that, thanks for the idea.

    Feeling a bit all over the place right now, but I'm gonna try and get a little work done. Need to plan my essay. It's stressing me out so much researching for it.
