    And OCD has once again decided to make nighttime a miserable experience
    I'm getting so upset over it (I'm crying now).
    I now dread getting into bed as its just been horrible over the last few days!
    Idk what's going on!!
    I give up!
    :grouphugs:Have you tried anything in particular to try and ease it/ has anything helped before?

    You're a strong person, and I'm sure you can get through this- don't give up!

    Well I'm using a lot of hand sanitizer, which has worked until a few days ago!

    Thanks, but I'm really not! I sure hope so!
    Thankyou :hugs:

    Ah, there are happening worse things, than calling your cat's name. And friendships generally often come unexpected...to my experience. And even a total weirdo image won't change it. Being nice is often rewarded in the long run.

    Just go to them and ask, do not assume they will no, until they have. (Though we could use it even with only the permission of the lecturer...)

    Ahh right i know a friend got a dictoohone and just asked each lecturer at the atart of the lwcture if she could record. It wasnt through disability or anything. Just meant so could go over it at home to make more detailed notes
    Thank you both for your advice. A dictaphone is a great idea except I leave home at 10.20am and don't get back until 5.15pm so I'd have no time to listen over a 3 hour lecture plus the lab class on top. Especially as I'm meant to be reading one chapter each evening too. :/ If (and this is a big if) I pass this class I'll have more time in the fall semester so could probably use one then.

    But right now everything's just turning to ****. I keep breaking out into tears; I've had to leave my class several times to go cry in the toilets. :cry2: I have a lab test tomorrow which I've been trying to revise for but the laughter and derogatory comments are really putting me off, I can't concentrate at all. If I fail this class again I think it's a sign I'm not really cut out for nursing. I should be used to failure by now but it still hurts.


    Sorry this is all about me, how are you guys doing?

    My OCD has flared up badly today. For the first time in months it's been LSD contamination specifically instead of broad based germ, toxin and drug contamination fears. Had panic attack after panic attack and I'm currently in that 2 hour wait of "watching myself" to see if I am drugged or not which is bloody stupid but I can't stop it. I'm out atm which doesn't help but hoping a run out to the garden centre might calm me a bit once I get there.

    Hope everyone has a good day :hugs:

    I have spoken to my exams officer for special circumstances in my a level exams and I honestly couldn't of come across a more ignorant person when it comes to mental health issues.

    Despite 3 clinical diagnoses and a referral for a fourth one, a letter from my psychotherapist and my GP supporting the application.... They are still being resistant! My father has gone mental emailing the school and they have forwarded the emails to the local education authorities and threaten to take it further. Absolutely horrendous the society we live in.

    Aw hey! I am totally the same recently. I have huge fears about taking any type of pills (partly why I refuse medication for my illnesses) as I fear that my ibuprofen has been swapped with ecstasy or something! It also doesn't help that they have released these pink pills for ibuprofen which are the only ones available in my house.. I have to check the packet and foil about a hundred times before I can swallow the pill.

    I really thought I was alone in this one!
