    Trust me, completely linking your mental health to what grades you get is only going to lead to further unhappiness. :sadnod: Do something worthwhile with your time (volunteering, education, new hobbies), remember all the good things about your life, and remember that school actually matters a hell of a lot less than you might think.

    :hugs: We need to get you an alarm clock! Text the people and apologise, then do something else productive maybe?



    :teehee:
    I had one set but I slept through it I text them but they haven't replied :/ they're probably mad at me

    Mix of bad and good stuff today, we did really well on our first flat inspection but then later on our tv broke (it just keeps turning itself off and on) and now I feel I'm going to be sick :/

    I just want to be happy that's literally my only goal and im scared im watching myself waste away. I dont know why I overthink I always just watch documentaries about terrorism and real life issues and i think its eating me away how insignificant i am compared to the whole world. You are right school actually school should not control your life but as a student it seems that way huh? I didnt make it to uni so i feel like a failure whereas my friends got into a medical school. Thanks for replying it made me feel a lot better x

    Struggling with staying awake and focussed during revision. I don't seem to be able to concentrate more than 45 minutes and it is not even because of bad thoughts, actually I feel normal. So I male loads of pauses during the day and try to sleep in between. (In addition to night.)

    And again struggling with all that social interaction. I just plan to say, they shall give me feedback, as I am not that talented in getting things accross nicely, because otherwise I won't get better at it. And I hope I pass my exams and I don't want to do the social skills stuff at university.
    That sounds like a pretty normal concentration span to me, I wouldn't worry about it.

    Maybe stop having naps during the day, and try and get back to the good sleep rhythm you had before? And they're probably just busy with the meeting, and that's why they haven't replied.

    Okay I didn't mean to sleep, I was just really cold so I got in bed to try and warm up and ended up drifting off. I wish I knew why I'm tired literally all the time :/ yeah I'll need to start going to bed at 10 again :sadnod:

    I wish our tv was working

    :hugs: I think the bed at 10 thing might be a good idea, or maybe 10.30 or 11? Did you mention the always feeling cold thing to the doctor as well as talking about your tiredness? Dunno if the two might be connected?

    How about watching something on your flatmate's computer (assuming she has one)?

    :rolleyes: Some people seriously need to learn some manners. It's entirely up to you what you do and don't pour over your head while fully clothed (most sane people would opt for nothing ), so I'd tell this person to kindly get bent.

    my grandad went white at 21! Like full head white. Unfortunately its probably in your genes.

    Ignore your parents, its VERY difficult to get a job at the moment, its not just you. So try not to listen to them ok!

    Also money doesnt give you happiness, trust me on that one!

    Parents difficult to ignore but i'm trying the best I can! My mirtazapine medication is causing me to wake up super late everyday too. I bet they think i'm a lazy bum now :eek:

    Does anti depressants cause anyone else to sleep like crazy loads? Not sure how I will survive even if I get a job!

    Different antidepressants have different effects on people but mirtazapine is infamous for being sedating. Are you taking it at night, that might help. Another thing is that mirtazapine gets less sedating at higher doses so you could try asking your doctor about that.

    hmm, that might be worth a shot. I'm currently on 30mg and take it at night before bed. Wake up 9-9:30am compared to my normal 6:30. I think the tablets aren't helping me on the 30mg dosage because i'm starting to get super negative thoughts like I was getting before I went onto medication. Last time the doctor called she told me that 45mg was the normal medical dosage but she wanted me to stick at 30mg for now.

    Okay :/ I mentioned it to the useless doctor but he never did anything about it. I'll mention it to the different doctor I saw last time, he seemed nice and more interested I've been kinda thinking it might be chronic fatigue syndrome since I had bloods done and they showed nothing wrong

    Got my flatmates computer and watching the IT Crowd on netflix to cheer myself up. Still haven't eaten and don't feel like moving to cook something. Considering just ordering something, but then that costs money

    anybody else battle with thoughts along the lines of "I'm not worth medication"? i have done since i started taking medication, this whole situation with my prescription really isn't helping that, especially because i will have to get an emergency appointment, which could be given to somebody who has a real emergency :emo:

    You got anyone you can practice on?

    When I have to make important phonecalls I write a script beforehand, saying exactly what I'm meant to say. That way I just have to read it, it makes the phonecall a lot easier.
    not really will just have to take a deep breath and do it because it is ridiculous me going cold turkey off sertraline for the sake of avoiding a phone call... also feel really embarrassed because i should've phoned up earlier when i noticed she had the wrong date, but stupid me was hoping she'd realise on her own.

    I have to say, DSA can be incredibly useful. Like having a study coach/mentor can really be a lifesaver. I'd really recommend applying, and even if you turn down most of the things offered you still might be offered something that really changes uni for the better for you.
    i see what you mean it just seems like a whole lot of hassle, especially because i'll be moving universities in a year so doubtless i'd have to go through it all over again - and i'd probably have to find out my official diagnoses, which i'm scared of in case they're worse/more severe than i thought :erm:

    He then had a go at me about my girlfriend saying I'm only not doing it because she's not doing it and that apparently she has my balls in her hands with everything. So annoyed right now. This person is supposed to be a friend.
