    :hello:

    I haven't been diagnosed with anything yet but have been in counselling for the last 3 years, got a doctors appointment next week to try and get evidence for dsa and I'm terrified .

    On a gap year at the moment but will give me more time to sort stuff out after failing A2 (3 E's). Going to apply for a foundation year in forensics.
    Hey, welcome to the society.

    I hope the doctor's helpful, and that you manage to get your health stuff sorted over this next year.

    Feeling a bit better. Bit guilty that I did nothing all day and severely lacking chocolate and/or cake. Going out for a little bit soon and my friend has conceded (with no influence from me) that I can have a drink or two as long as I don't get drunk. Apparently we're getting up early tomorrow to do everything we can in one day. Debating going out with other people in the hostel but then she would worry a lot which is unfair. Plus I like the idea in theory but it'll be loud and too many people.

    Heya! Welcome to the Soc! :hugs:

    Don't be terrified about DSA. It's a bit more longwinded than one would like but it'll hopefully be more than worth it in the end

    Ahhhh, you're a scientist! :eek: I joke Forensics sound fascinating :yep:

    Well, Drs was much better than I'd expected! Referral to CBT in progress, and even better she thinks the wait won't be as bad as I'd imagined

    Has anyone got any experiences with CBT? Would be interested to see how helpful people have (or haven't) found it

    I had that same problem :console:

    I still haven't done it yet, I really don't want to, I don't know why I just don't :/ don't like being filmed either. Might just donate instead

    I had CBT for 9 months in 2011. It was really hard work and often quite upsetting... but I learnt a lot about myself and as a result of the techniques I was taught, I have been able to deal with my psychosis a bit better and my anxiety a LOT better

    I know this feeling as well! Only have a few close friends at home, and uni friends are all spread out across the country now. My parents have suggested trying a social group or volunteering, but I just think that those sorts of things will attract older people rather than people of my own age. Don't really have any other suggestions of ways to meet people though

    Still, will give the social group and see what happens. I've got nothing to lose I guess!

    Thanks for this. Yeah, I'm expecting it to be a bit emotional+hard work (many years of ingrained habits+attitudes won't change overnight!), but hopefully it'll help!

    I'll feel worse if I don't do it because that will reaffirm in my mind that I hardly know anyone. I have about 5 close friends and that's it. Used to know so many people when I mountain biked but since everyone I know stopped that last year I fell out of touch with it

    I'll probably still do it, I'll just nominate one person or something. I'll look like a loser but whatevs.

    Yeah sports are always good! I joined a fencing club about 6 months ago and really enjoy it (even though there isn't anyone else of a similar age there!). I might join another sports club as well: maybe tennis...
