    I took an IQ test just now and got a score of 133, which is Gifted (2.3% of test takers). I dunno how reliable it really is, but it still made me feel a bit better, that I'm maybe not as dumb as I'd worried after all . This has added a little more confidence to me trying to return to education

    if its something you do everyday and it helps you it may be worth it, when i was on school residentials i always took bottles of water as it calmed me down a lot [also, a GAD sufferer due to NVLD] and made sure that staff / students knew that it was going to be with me

    on an unrelated note, is there a way that at uni i can tell the university about the GAD, NVLD, Autism, ADHD and seizures without making it too noticable I've told disability support but they cant tell my tutors till 2 weeks after welcome week.
    I'll pack a few just incase! I don't want to tell anyone really because for some reason mental health issues are still somewhat taboo in my school I only have one friend who knows about all my problems and she's not going to be in my class so I doubt i'll get to talk to her .

    The school have given us like no information about the trip and I always have to plan everything I do beforehand otherwise my anxiety levels get very high :/.

    I'm also worried about food! what do i eat if i dont like anything??? I also can't eat any sugary foods in the morning but what if thats all that is available???

    Im really regretting agreeing to go on this trip

    hellokittymad I can't help you on the second half because I'm only in year 12! perhaps there is a mentor or leader who you can email? I'm very sorry I hope to all gets sorted!

    do the school know anything about the mental health issues? I understand about having to plan everything in advance I have to do the same, if you need someone to talk to you can PM me I'll quite happily chat to you xx

    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:
    I've been good thanks. My job is pretty interesting and I've got to do cool things like shadow a mental health act assessment and go to court to get a warrant.

    Ooooo sounds interesting. Happy belated birthday! Dbs checks are the worst! Mine always take ages to come back (thanks to me being unwell...). What's your volunteering doing? Are you still looking at joining the world of occupational therapy?

    Yeah we are both doing a lot better now. And holly the cat says hi!

    Thanks . It was poor performance in A Levels and some jobs that made me feel a bit dumb, but I guess it's more that they just weren't right for me. I've always been too scared to go for uni in case I fail, but I think I want to try it now, cos who knows, maybe I could do well

    Could you go on a weekday?

    Have you got a list already written?

    My mum is taking me and saturday is the only day she could do as she works away on the rest of the week and the sunday we go to Church.

    I've not written a list I'm not entirely sure what I need because university doesn't provide anything at all for the kitchen or bathroom apart from the obvious stuff but no pots or pans or anything like that
