    Okay, so people terrify me. I'm incredibly nervous in social situations, especially when it comes to small talk and stuff.

    I have to get a taxi on Monday and I have never felt as anxious. Not because of stranger danger or anything, but because I don't know taxi etiquette or what if the driver talks to me and I don't know what to say etc. Sounds incredibly daft written down but I'm pretty nervous.

    Any advice?

    I’m doing really badly mentally and I can’t tell anyone (like my psychiatrist or CPN) because I need to be allowed to go back to uni in September

    Saber :hugs: I know the feeling.

    But don't beat yourself up, you have a lot going on right now.

    Is there a chance to resit? If so could you get feedback on where it went wrong?
    I emailed the professor and she said there's no resit possible but if I don't understand I should talk to her. I do understand I just don't remember the hundreds (literally) of terms, the whole class is basically just a huge memory test.

    How's your job going?

    :hugs: I agree with you (about myself). I admire you for actually posting it - even you're anon it can be difficult posting how you feel about yourself so you shouldn't hate yourself for writing this - you should be proud in some way? Idk if that makes sense. But I hope you feel a lot more confident about yourself in the near future.

    Lots of love, :hugs:

    I used to think the same, but it will. Don't worry. Yes I do and noo don't think like that. Everyone has their own problems and everyone's issues are real - its all just dependent on the person. :lovehug: Haha thank you

    I don't know if spiders can be triggering but spoilered just in case...
    Spoiler:
    Show
    I absolutely hate spiders and there are two in my room, really near my bed... one of them just ran off from where it was and now I have no idea where it is. I can ignore them if they're just in the corner of the room but they are so close to where I will be sleeping, and I have a load of cushions on my bed so I am terrified that they will somehow get in there or my bed. Can't they just go away and leave me alone? Nobody else in the house ever has problems with spiders being near their bed, it's as if they are just targeting me

    Got a meeting on Thursday about moving into supported accommodation and have heard some bad things about it in general so I'm feeling a bit nervous. Even if it is really terrible I don't think I have much of a choice about it. I really need to move out and this will be my best option for doing so. I'm not even sure how much it will cost a month so I can't even do any budgeting. It is a shared flat with shared toilet and kitchen and shared living room so I doubt it will cost more than £400 a month but that is still half my income and food is really expensive here so I'm not sure how I'll be able to budget for everything. One thing is for sure if I do move out I'll have to give up smoking because it is far too expensive. I'm dreading how hard that will be. I smoke about 20 a day.

    At least the accommodation is near to my family so I won't be moving hundreds of miles away.

    You will be able to get housing benefit to either help pay the rent or fully pay it depending on how much the rent is and your income
