    Scribble on yourself in felt tip, hot/ cold shower, eat a lemon/ lime, punch a pillow? A few suggestions that may help.

    Not doing great at the moment. Motivation and focus are at pretty much nothing. Self esteem and general faith in my ability to succeed is also awfully low. Anxiety, stress and zombie-ness are starting to take over and I'm not even showering or eating lunch atm. On the bright side though, I'm not actually SAD- just lacking in emotion-, I've managed to reduce one of my OCDs, I'm doing rather well socially and not freaking as much about my "bubble" and side effects aren't as constant anymore.
    I'm not feeling good. I'm stressed and anxious and unmotivated etc but there's still a tiny little bit of faith I'm clinging to that's saying "it's all in your head. Exams will be over soon and you'll be fine". I just need to manage for my exams and then I can have whatever mental overload I need to without too much repercussion. All I need to do is manage to sit through 4 exams. Just that and then I'll be fine. Hang in there just a little longer!

    If I'm honest I don't really find any of these things help. I haven't yet found a way to deal with this.

    I think I'm just going to end up doing it somewhere hidden.

    Sorry to hear that you are not doing great, do try to focus on the positives though. Reducing OCD and doing well socially sounds great to me - you should be proud of yourself! I'm proud of you.
    Also clinging to this exams will be over soon feeling, I've only got three left though. :hugs: I am always around if you want someone to talk to

    Alright no I am not okay!

    Days are fine, I can cope, but as soon as i'm alone and it's bed time all my defences come crumbling down. If something doesn't change soon I think i'm going to end up down a very bad road. I don't know how much longer I can hang on for.
    I don't think there's too much risk for tonight, that part seems to have passed for now, but I really don't know if I can make it to exams.
    Everything was going fine until I looked at my percentages and realised how much easier than I thought it was to get my target grades. Sounds like a good thing doesn't it? But then I lost any and all motivation. I have no more lessons cos it's half term and now i'm going downhill. I would have been able to get my targets easily as long as I could stay focused in the exam but now i'm in a bad place and i'm worried I won't be able to take the exam well. I couldn't even read more than a cuple of scentences today before I totally lost all focus. It took so much effort just to look at the page. I don't know if i'll even be able to read the question in the exam, let alone answer it! D:

    I'm freaking out so much about everything. I don't know what to do. I don't know what to feel. I want to talk to a friend but now isn't a good time and I don't have an appointment with my therapist until after exams.

    I'm so screwed!! :'(

    Sorry for the massive rant. Don't want to be a downer on anyone's day xxxx

    Eventually managed to sleep . I usually wake up at this time for a bit but today I will actually get out of bed and not be lazy :yep:

    For around a week or so I was taking only 20mg Citalopram instead of the prescribed 30mg because it was making me really tired. But there was an increase in bad thoughts so I went back up to 30 which has brought the tiredness back but also seems to have got rid of the bad thoughts :dontknow:

    Kind of embarrassing but has anyone else here experienced sex difficulties while on SSRI's?

    Was with a new girlfriend last night and it was one of the most embarrassing experiences of my life

    Luckily she was really nice about it but still....

    Anyone know if switching AD might help or if there's much you can do for it? :confused:
