    ****ing guy in next bed has had his radio on blasting out for over 12 hours. Cant bring myself to ask him to turn it off but feel like smashing it to bits. This hospital provides radios but they should think about providing headphones.

    Finished travelling and going home from the airport takes a bit hit to my mental wellbeing but I am not going back to the place where I was mentally. I'll fight it.

    I might take a permanent hiatus from this place. I hope everyone is having a great Wednesday :hugs:

    Saying 'no offense but... your problems aren't that important' is not the way we do things in this society. Everyone's problems are different, and affect them differently. Plus, animals can make a huge difference to your mental well-being, as I've found myself.

    Up to you of course, but I'd say an apology is in order.
    ^ this. Pets can make such a difference to your MH to the extent that in the US, a psychiatric service dog is an actual thing.

    :yep: And there are entire charities dedicated to getting pets for the elderly because of the mental health benefits (and physical I believe) of having an animal companion. :emog:

    You got people you can talk it over with? :console: I guess the main things to consider would be: is your situation likely to be better/worse next year, was there much competition to get your place/are you likely to get in again, will fees rise significantly, and what would you do in your year off (doing nothing generally does little to help :sadnod:).
    I've spoken to my brothers and sister about not being sure about the course and thinking I should explore my options. Some say take the year out, others say just stick with the course.

    Is it ok if I PM you about it? I know you can't tell me what to do but any advice would be much appreciated!

    No offense but people like me who is going to leave most his family in three days to go back to a rubbish country have more problems to deal with then getting a 'dog'

    Whilst I can appreciate that you're in a lot of pain and angst:

    1) Most of the people you are talking to in this society are from this "rubbish country" you speak of :hmmm:

    2) We don't belittle other people's issues and worries in this Soc. So that was not a nice thing to post at all :no:

    So basically, offence taken :sadnod:

    I'm not really confident in myself with much, i attended an induction to care and support work the other day, except i ended up getting there a bit late on account of buses going past where i wanted to stop, and google maps lying to me :shakecane: I ended up getting sent away since there wasn't any more space for people, but was told to return next week as if i had been anyways.

    Now today i get a phonecall asking me to attend another induction thing :excited: I'm gonna get all the training, all of it It's nice to feel like i'm kinda wanted for something, im curious where this is gonna take me, if it will get me into a job again and how fast :excited: I just need to skip over the "what have you been doing in the last few years" thing

    Well if the NHS would prescribe and pay for a dog I would definitely try and get in on it. Even if it didn't significantly help MH issues, I think it would improve quality of life.

    Main problem is can't afford a dog on £70 a week ESA and when I am working I won't be able to look after one properly. I should probably claim PIP cos of the severity of my problems but to be honest I hope to be back in work before they bump up my esa let alone before a pip claim would go through. That said I think both those benefits are a bit shaky if you have intermittent problems like I do. Unless you malinger in between periods of poor health you are a bit ****ed benefits wise. Ironic that they want to stop people malingering but make a system that sort of encourages it to get what you are entitled to.
