    Alcohol/general trigger
    Spoiler:

    I will probably be dead within 3 years.

    I am basically an alcoholic tbh, I drink a lot as often as I can because I hate myself & don't want to live if I don't.
    Have you spoken to anyone about your drinking? Feeling unable to live without a drink is a very common feeling amongst those with alcohol problems, but many people are able to start a sober life. If you've got even the slightest desire to change I would really suggest talking to someone.

    My stepdad has took another suspected stroke. He's just left for hospital. We won't know for a while if it was a mini one or a full blown one like last time :cry2:

    He seemed OK earlier when I saw him but it's scary how quickly things can progress with things like this and his Parkinson's.

    Last night was one of the worst nights I've ever had. Still feel really fragile.

    Also had an exam this morning, which I'll be surprised if I got 30% on.

    Hey I'll do my best to provide some advice for you!

    1. I'm not sure if they'll listen I'm afraid. But I'd defo tell them just so that they're aware of the situation!

    2. You should go for it! It wouldn't hurt to give it a go and see what they say!

    3. Well if you don't feel therapy is helping you then you might aswell end it! But I'd keep it going for a little bit yet. Just to make sure that you're fairly certain that you're ready to stop it!

    Apologies I couldn't be more help, my OCD is playing up so I'm struggling to type currently!
    hey sorry for not replying sooner and thank you for the advice- really hope you're doing ok you're such a lovely person you dont deserve it :hugs:

    Got my degree mark back. Got a 2.i (67), I'm so shocked! My dissertation/project was a 1st as well. :eek:

    I have the option of doing a September resit of an exam I took in January as well as I got a 53 (the coursework grade for this module was a 72). It'll be classed as a "first sit"/uncapped, and if I get lower than the 53 in the resit I stay with the 53 I got the first time...but I'm not sure if I want to go through the hassle of having to learn all the material again. :/ I don't know what I want to do. Everyone is telling me I should resit it as that 53 was 75% of that module grade, and if I get higher then it'll potentially change my degree classification to a 1st. Not sure what to do. I don't really have the motivation to do anymore studying (or much of anything really) - what do you guys think I should do?

    Such a high 2:1 is really awesome. Go you! :five:

    I think whether to retake the module depends on what you've got planned. If you have a master's lined up or something I probably wouldn't bother but if you're not doing much and have the potential to get a first then, personally, I'd do that.

    hey all, not posted in ages (or on this account at all tbh)

    my sleep is a real mess as always, about to eat "lunch" (in this case potato footballs & baked beans as I have sod all else in)

    my mood is very up & down, days where I am doing stuff like going out I seem to be fine, but days where I don't have things to do or don't make it out I feel really really low (like really bad thoughts low tbh)

    I'm sure they have messed with my "medication". I don't think I should take it. My wife got mad when I suggested so I've taken it but I'm worried it will hurt me it's far too easy to do I'm not home during the day. And there's hundreds of ants which I'm sure have something to do with it too. I know that sounds strange but I put poison down last week and there's hundreds more of the ****ing things now. I think maybe they have something bad on their feet spreading it about? There are little clicks and whirling noises when I'm upstairs on my own - sounds a lot like a camera(s), been hearing these sounds all day following me about. Just seems a bit coincidental that they only happen where I am.I had an exam this morning and couldn't concentrate at all. All the other students were whispering about and laughing at me the professor gave out cookies at the end - probably explains why I've had such a bad stomach ache since. Damn my sweet tooth, I shoulld have realized it was a trap. I keep getting really bad stomach aches, I think it's a reaction to whatever they've done to my "medication" or the ants or something in the fridge I'm talking like 9/10 on a pain scale I left class on monday to curl in a ball on a chair outside for a good 15 minutes so something is being messed with for definite. There are so many things going on and I don't know who to talk to. My wife shouted at me last night when I was crying because she doesn't see why I have to "ruin everything every time you get anywhere near succeeding" like I invite the voices to shout at me or something. they are so ****ing loud all the time recently I can't think straight there's no relief I don't know who to talk to.

    Sorry kind of rambled, it's easier to think if I write what I'm thinking, they can't steal that from me.

    it's annoying aha, I don't always have the money to go out or the energy cause of my sleep! I am hoping to go to the Tolpuddle Festival in July for a few days but I need to see if I can get a lift to it as there's no public transport there! other than that my plans are just going to the local social club to watch sports and such, which isn't much but people are friendly & cheap cider so

    Sorry you are feeling bad. Have you thought about speaking your CPN or your psychiatrist at all? Might be worth giving them a phone call before things get worse just to see if there is anything they can do. Even if they just give you a bit of diazepam or something that might help a lot.

    Last night I managed to stay completely calm about something that usually makes me panic and get really upset :woo: I'm so proud!
