    I've made it to my desk now. I guess it's just a case of head down and powering through
    do you need internet for it? if not, you could try and do what i do - i switch it off and then every 100 words or so i switch it back on, have a browse for ten minutes, then switch it off and do another 100 words.

    it means i spend more time browsing than i do working, but it also means it's not very daunting and i actually end up doing marginally more in the same space of time - if i tried to do it all in one go, i'd just get intimidated and not start it at all.

    Well done and good luck! Baby is kicking like crazy. It is quite uncomfortable.

    I'm currently sat having lunch at uni, on the verge of tears because of all the work they are making me do. My tutor has had to disappear somewhere so we are in charge of ourselves, and they are all saying I need to be the one to Sig this song. I just want to go home and sleep. I can't because I am the only person who can sing it.

    There is no one to talk to. I feel very distanced from everyone, like I'm walking around in a state of half-sleep. I hate that people keep pissing about and aren't on target on the project, and I'm the only person with any sense. I don't want to be in charge. I feel ill. Just feel like walking out and going home and never coming back.

    Well done for telling them you needed to leave. Your health and sanity are much more important than anything else at the moment. Take care of you and your baby and leave everyone to worry about everything else. *hugs*

    You can do it. I have faith in you
    *sniffles* Really struggling with the physics engine but I'm crawling towards something that at least works. I'll spend today fighting with it and then hunt down my second supervisor tomorrow to ask questions.

    How's your dissertation doing? I saw that a lot of you guys were pulling all nighters.

    :hugs: you're a lot close to getting it done than earlier one step at a time you can do it
    Thanks. That's how I'm working at the moment. Bit by bit. I think I've been looking at the whole thing instead of the little bits so it's been too overwhelming.

    I'm working mostly offline now. The only problem is that I need to pop back to get advice every so often because it's all programming. I was getting a little scared when I looked at full working projects and I'm not anywhere approaching their knowledge and I freak out

    Did you manage to get to the shop last night in the end? Just remember, soon you will not have to see them again if you don't want to. You are not stupid or silly. People who don't have mental health issues do not understand :heart:

    That isn't very considerate of her. I am sure if she has truly had depression before then she would have understood, unless she blanked the experience from her memory?

    A friend sent me a quote the other day. I can't remember who said it, but it was something along the lines of "Those who mind don't matter, and those who matter don't mind."

    If people really think badly of you then they do not matter.

    That is difficult for me to believe as well especially when a lot of my anxiety stems from how people view me, but it helped me when my friend sent it to me so I thought I'd pass it on.

    :jumphug: Give me 2 secs and I'll come onto Skype.
    Thanks guys, though I'm hiding on Skype atm as trying to get some work done so I can actually see people tonight (shocking, right?).

    Met with new psych nurse who was totally nice and all but asked me some really triggering questions that have set me off a tiny bit (both on the PTSD front and suicide plans). I'm not entirely sure what it's meant to accomplish when they ask really intrusive questions about trauma which don't serve any purpose other than make me tactiley which is uncomfortable. Or for that matter when they ask me to expound Bad Plans in great detail when they can't DO anything to stop me and I don't want them to. Am meeting her again in a week and a half because we agreed it would be helpful for me to have someone else that I feel comfortable enough with to go see in a crisis, and she said she'd keep seeing me through all of next year as well. The problem is getting through the initial discomfort because I just hate hate hate being in a room alone with a non-safe person and having to talk about like the most triggering stuff imaginable. :cry2: But if psychiatrist and GP think I need a CPN then so be it I guess. Just hate it all and having a lot of Bad Thoughts atm. :bawling:

    Will likely be on Skype and actually talking at some point this evening after going to see people and have pizza. I'm glad for the company but also a bit scared because:

    Spoiler:
    Show
    a) One of the other people is the college welfare person, who had to come save me from horrific flashback the other day and watch me pretty much convulsing and screaming on my bed for half an hour. Given it had already been going for almost an hour before I managed to call her, I was in a complete state, pretty much drenched in sweat and hair all in my mouth and all over the place and just bawling, and I reeeeeally don't like the fact that she's seen me at my complete most vulnerable.

    b) They like to have lots of open sex talk which sometimes I'm fine with but occasionally it can cross the boundary into triggering, and I've ended up having flashbacks most other times I've seen these people recently so really hoping it doesn't happen today.

    c) Having pizza which is pretty good but the calories are scaring me.

    d) General social anxiety. Not sure I'll be very good at talking as I'm feeling pretty low and making sound feels like such effort. Might need diaz, but I only have 23 2mg tabs left which feels like I'm getting kind of low and I'm not sure if/when the GP will next let me have some.

    I googled it and it seems to reduce efficacy. Here's one link I found:
    http://www.drugs.com/interactions-ch...106-0,1461-865

    I had to come off the combined pill because of migraines and stroke risk.... And now I don't want to mess about with hormones anymore as I have PCOS... so I'm hoping to go on the copper coil in summer. Sorry just randomly decided to tell you that
    Thanks! I went with a different non contraception killing anti anxiety instead

    Yeah I did too that's why I went with Mirena. If it's any help, I didn't find the fitting painful at all, in fact it was one of the easier medical things I've had done so if you're anything like me and read 000s of stories of women going IT'S SO PAINFUL, try not to worry

    Typical.

    I shower for first time in 3 days, then less than half an hour later I smell like smoke and general acrid-ness (it's a word, people) because my attempt to make soup led to a saucepan catching fire.
    Add to that burns on fingers and it's really not cool.

    And I'm hungryyyy and I can't even go to the shops for non-cooking food until the pan is cooled under the fire blanket in case it explodes (or something), but I also can't watch it from the kitchen because of All Of The Smoke. Silly Nut.

    That's the annoying thing about meds or contraception there is always some contra-indication that means you can't have it :mad:
    Ah thanks that's reassuring I apparently have a high pain threshold anyway - doctors and nurses always think I'm weird when I have blood tests etc :rolleyes: or should I say they know I'm weird
    Yeah I read a lot about people going OMG IT'S WORSE THAN CHILDBIRTH... but thought they'd be exaggerating or the kind of people who get a paper cut and go on about it for weeks on end

    Can you run a sink full of cold water and put the pan in there whilst you go to the shops? :hugs:

    :uberhuggles: Yeah once it's a bit cooler putting in water might be a good plan (not while still hot cos the water will go all boiley and that'll be bad etc.)

    Exactly! It's annoying
    Haha I always thought I was a pussy but I'm alright providing there are no needles involved. In all honesty, a period hurts way more, or at least for me. I do have endometriosis though so mine are probably more painful than normal ones.

    I think you'll be fine with it

    I've moved from my macbook to my computer so that's helping a lot. I'll stumbling towards something anyway I'll pester you when I'm stuck again though.

    That's awesome! I'm proud of you too. Did you get it done how you'd planned?
