    Yeah thanks

    Very sorry to hear about throat infection that's really rubbish :/ Is that the strep, sorry? Either way try not to worry about hockey stuff? Can't help it that you're ill, and not your fault at all - so don't go blaming yourself?
    I'm sorry you're feeling so rubbish at the moment Hope things improve soon for you, sounds like you've got a lot on
    :hugs:

    and thanks watched some lord of the rings in bed with some pancakes then got sleep!
    I'm not sure what strep is called in the UK (and google wasn't helpful) but it's just a specific type of throat infection. That's basically what my wife said about the hockey but I can't help feeling bad over it, I feel like if I wasn't such a wuss I'd play through the pain. And thanks

    Pancakes sound good. I wanted to make some but yeah....effort

    Feel just too overwhelmed still don't even know what I'm doing :/ Got an assignment in for tomorrow and I didn't even remember it/had forgotten sort of, I'd meant to do it over this week/last 4 days, but just haven't had the time apparently/just bleh. Probably couldn't do it even if I tried, not understanding anything really in lectures atm. And keep missing them, too
    3 weeks of lectures left and then I've got to somehow know enough to sit these exams.
    Hopefully after this weekend cinema will take up less time, though
    Getting to make-up and project Toy Story on friday, though - so excited though also exhausted bad 4am sleep schedule is bad :/
    How'd the assignment go? If you're not understanding lectures could you try speaking to the lecturer about it? ime they don't mind helping people out, for instance by recommending some background reading you could do to clarify things.

    "project Toy story"? Sounds intriguing!

    You'd need to talk to your doctor but generally SSRI antidepressants are prescribed for ocd.

    I've gone lifting again and I feel pretty great. I do actually think there's some truth to the stuff I've been reading sadly, but perhaps I can use it to my advantage via 'taking care of myself' etc.

    In the UK, they don't generally take swabs if you have an inflamed throat. If they decide it is bacterial and severe enough to require treatment they just prescribe a broad spectrum antibiotic which would cure strep or straph infection (two of the most common bacteria causing throat infections).

    Rather than specifying a bacteria or virus, they specify the bit of the throat that is inflamed so they would diagnose tonsilitis or pharyngitis.

    To cut a long story short though, tonsilitis is generally the term used for strep throat in the uk (even if it isn't the tonsils specifically affected people would call it that)

    Don't know why I bother coming to uni because I'm never going to do well. I'm just stupid and don't care enough to listen
    There's an opening for an undergraduate research assistant at my uni and I really want to to apply for but they'll want to speak to me face to face about it and I'll embarras myself. Even if I got the job I'd be terrible and I'd mess it all up, I can't do anything
    I feel like absolutely everything aches and I'm just feeling so mopey and I keep crying for no reason.

    :hugs: Please don't think you're stupid! Is really difficult to keep up with work at University, even without health stuff, and motivation comes along with that/it's common to find yourself without as much as you'd like with regard to "caring" to listen and stuff - or at least I'm finding that at the moment

    Sure you won't embarrass yourself :nah: See how it goes? Worst that can happen is you just don't get it/the same situation you're in if you don't apply? Though I realise that job applications and stuff completely sucks and is scary :hide:

    Well, scratch that, now I don't have my two friends in my group either, didn't get my first choice. This is just ****ing stupid, and I know I shouldn't be this worked up over something so trivial but I just can't be ****ing bothered with this ****.

    Gonna fail it anyway, so **** at everything.
    :hugs: Try not to worry too much about it if you can? Can you share results with the other people in your group? Or maybe go with your friends when they do there's/steal some of the people they use :hugs: Seems really unfair that you have to find your own people and just tough.

    Was going to say if you're near coventry then I'd be happy to though I realise that chances are you aren't

    Reading through Jay's thing, makes more sense now Very sorry that it's like that, though Not a wuss at all! :eek: They wouldn't expect you to play at all with an infection/not well :nah:

    They ended up cold because I was writing on here and in diary but were nice still I guess... - Yeah exactly These were shop bought ones :hide:

    Didn't even bother :sad: same as the last one (they're every fortnight) Just bleh :/ Yeah I think I *could* but I'm not sure how much it's me understanding and how much - and I think that it's this - it's just me needing to put in some work/look through notes/actually copy up lectures I miss and pay attention in lectures. Just finding it difficult atm to do any of those/keep missing them too, and don't know what to do really Just got to hope I can revise okay/better than last year - last year was saved by the fact that exams had A-level stuff in partly, and weren't too difficult. This year I haven't a clue on *any* of it :/ sorry, just a ramble

    Haha We're having a pixar film night at the student cinema - first film is Toy Story which is in 35mm film! :eek: Just been "making it up"/checking that it's in good shape this evening - unfortunately it isn't but fixing the bits okay Is good fun! but probably need to do less because I think it might be eating my time up/stopping work, but I'm just so confused about it and could ramble for/against for ages

    Hope you've had a good day!

    No probs. I used to get that all the time to the point where they suggested removing the tonsils but then several years ago, I had it really bad and took a very high dose of antibiotics and since it cleared up that time, I haven't had it since.

    Not playing hockey or whatever when you are ill shouldn't make you feel bad. It isn't about being able to 'take the pain' or some such other stoic concept. It is surely about just being smart and conserving your strength to fight an infection as quick as possible so you are back to full fitness to play next time. Or just generally prioritising your health and recovery over trivial things. I wish I had learnt to think like that ten years ago tbh, in hindsight, every time I have 'played through it' whether it be in regards to mental or physical health has just been stupidity, not strength.

    Oh nice! I wish the antibiotics would kick in like that for me I got sore throats all the time as a kid too but never as severely as these past few weeks and never with such prolonged fever. Hopefully you continue to be free of it.


    *sigh* I know you're right really, it's just hard to admit that I'm not superman. I feel so pathetic emailing the coach and admitting that I'm ill, as a rule I try my best to continue regardless of mental or physical problems and I know that's stupidity. It's responsible for my **** degree but I never learn. However, you're right. I was weighing up whether to play tonight or not and after reading your post I'm gonna give it a miss because I really do need my strength to fight this ****ing infection. Thank you.

    Yeah, it really sucks when you get it bad. Hopefully, you'll have the same experience as me once this course works through your system.

    I have been exactly the same all my life. Have struggled about on a broken foot till someone made me go to the hospital cos I didn't want to 'be a pussy about it'. Just made me look like a stupid prick.

    Never ever wanted to admit that I had mental problems and needed help and just consistently got myself into dire situations and ruined parts of my life and caused more hassle to other people.

    Luckily with my degree it was modular but it meant that I had to work insanely hard in some terms to compensate for the terms where I totally flunked everything. This was just stupidity because the extra stress probably meant that I spent more time ill than if I had surrendered and sought help and time out.

    Its a struggle not to feel that way though to be honest and sometimes it just helps to hear it from someone else. I don't know where wanting to be perfect even stems from, I don't expect other people to.

    Don't worry about hockey. You just risk another infection. Physical Illness and sport is not that an good combination.

    I'm feeling really anxious and scared about something ... I want to confide to the person but I'm certain they won't be sympathetic or reassuring, so I feel quite lost and upset. What can I do ... I don't know what to do other than keep it to myself and deal with it :erm:

    No, we have to contribute our own results (which is making me stress out). Gonna try and see if she will transfer me into the same group as my friends (we got split up in the end when it came to choosing which lab we wanted, I was a bit too late, and the lab I wanted got filled up within a minute!), but if she doesn't then I'll just ask my friends to participate in my experiment. Just don't like the thought of being on my own, especially as I'm not feeling that great lately and not really understanding anything in lectures - it's nice to be able to talk to people about what's happened during the lecture. Helps me understand it more. Guess I could try and make new friends, but talking to new people is so stressful and I would much rather not do it, makes me have anxiety attacks. :dontknow: Never used to be like this. Guess I've just gotten lazy. Yeah, I think it's preparation for next years project, but that'll be easier, because our projects can just go for the whole year etc.

    Thanks. :hugs:

    How are you? :jumphug:
