    Superwolf! How are you? (besides being ill :console:) hope you feel better soon
    Bullettheory!!! :jumphug: Hello lovely, how've you been?

    I'm doing pretty good, apart from having a bad cough/cold. Brain's still bubbling with craft projects and it was my birthday the other day, so I got a bunch of knitting books for further inspiration. *Still* waiting for my DBS check to come back so I can start my volunteering, which is a bit frustrating as I think it's going to be awesome, but what can you do eh?

    Hope your girlfriend's doing well, last I heard you were both going through a rough patch, so I hope both of you are doing better. :console:

    Things aren't going very well at the minute- after a lot of effort to get on top of things over the last couple of years, I've found myself back at square one. My university spotted that I have an anxiety problem and have asked me to take time out from my studies- I told my family (but don't want to mention the anxiety part because I know they wouldn't take it well) and they really don't approve and are quite embarrassed by it because I will now be graduating after my younger siblings etc.

    I hate the thought of having to go back into a new year-group where I don't know anyone, but I think the worst part is knowing that no-one from my old year-group is likely to notice that I've left at all. I don't have any friends at home either, so just feeling very alone, and like I've messed everything up. I'm normally into fitness but just haven't had any interest in that all summer which is frustrating me too because I've unsurprisingly lost a lot of fitness and trying to get back into the habit of exercising properly is a slow process.

    To summarise, just feeling unhappy and alone and felt like saying hello.

    Getting more off days recently where I'm even more down than usual.

    What are some good ways to sorta pick yourself up a bit or get through it?

    Not really feeling good today made a **** up over the date of my mood management course. I had it on my phone as 28th and it's tomorrow instead. I ended up getting really panicky over it

    Have you got all the DSA support in place? Do you have a mentor or someone you can check in with regularly and whom you can turn to if things start to go pear-shaped? :hugs:

    Btw am hiding on Facebook if you wanna talk there. If I disappear, Dad has found me awake and shouted at me
    not currently claiming DSA because i had a think about it and theres not much i would claim for :/ i do have my tutor and a new counsellor at uni to talk to though i think I'm just really nervous because autumn semester last year was one of the worst periods of my life ever and i don't want to end up like that again :/

    Can i ask an entirely different question?? Does uni change yourself in terms of Anxiety and depression, since you said you cant wait to go back

    i wish i was in uni this year to escape from my ****ing piece of **** family and i have belief that university will change my life
    ermm, hard to say tbh. i've always been really enthusiastic about studying and I've always loved going to school and learning new things and expanding my knowledge and stuff, so i wouldn't say its impacted on that, and both me and my last counsellor agreed on the fact that i just have an anxious personality type - before everything bubbled over and caused issues, i was anxious anyway, especially about exams - and thats just the way i am. my depression definitely gets worse when i go to uni, because a lot of my self worth stems from my grades and my abilities, and because i get homesick, though.

    i think its important to make sure you're going to uni for the right reasons, because it is hard, theres no two ways about it, university is bloody difficult.

    Fairy snuff. I got a mentor through it who I saw weekly. She was very supportive - a star. She even once phoned my psychiatrist's secretary and told psychiatrist off (via secretary)

    Sending lots of good vibes your way. Remember that jjust because last autumn was horrendous, doesn't mean that this one will be. You might be surprised about how things pan out

    Though I'm not sure if this is for everyone but for me in the last 10 months (when it has gotten worse) I've put on 12kg.

    It's a shame, the only thing that can really hold me back is myself.
