    Right this was later than anticipated but I'm here!!

    I had two therapy appointments today, one straight after the other (30 mins inbetween them). I'm very happy with the first one! It was with my new psychotherapist who is a wizard at treating OCD! He's already helped more than my previous two therapists did put together!!
    I genuinely think I'm gonna be cured by him and in a short timeframe too! Magnificent! Couldn't be happier with him!

    Then I had a group appointment with the NHS (in one of my local Tesco's, of all places) and that wasn't really very useful. I knew everything that was said in it (that was the 4th time I'd heard it all). But I have 3 more to go to before the NHS will let me see someone 1 to 1. It's annoying but that's what I've got to do. Not impressed. Although there was a cute girl there too, around my age. I may speak to her at some point She seems quiet like me but very friendly too!

    My OCD has been awful recently! It's been constant and I've not had a break from it at all! It's just so frustrating and upsetting!
    Even today hasn't been particularly good but I'm ok at the moment (for the first time in a while!). I'm relaxed and happy about life, which is good!

    Thanks for reading this, if anyone does!

    Hope you're all well!

    I'm going to get my eyes tested and get new glasses tomorrow for the first time in a few years. Terrified of taking a panic in the waiting room or during the examination

    My birthday is on the 10th and I wonder if my old TSR buddy is going to wish me happy birthday. We don't speak any longer. If she is still reading my posts and sees this she probably will not wish me happy birthday. Oh well such is life

    It's probably because before despite having insomnia you were exhausted from the day at school, maybe exams etc and just zonked out in the end whereas now maybe you're not tiring yourself out much at all in comparison? Could it be that?

    I just heard I've past the year anyway... I really hoped that now everything would be at least a little better but to be honest, I still feel like crying and I have no energy to 'celebrate' that I've passed and still feel really bad about all of it. Damn me.

    The ****ing psychiatrist didn't reduce my clopixol even though she said she would she's pissing me off and being incompetent. I texted my care coordinator today and my old one saying I want a new doctor or I'm not going to any more appointments. Every 6 to eight months she's only reduced it to 25mg at her slow pace I'll still be on it for four years and I'm not happy. At least if it was the tablet form I might understand but it's the injections and I hate the injections they hurt me to the point of crying and she doesn't give a flying ****.

    How comes they decided to use depot? Was it because you had difficulty taking your meds, or is it that the depot is more effective? Have you thought of getting an advocate? They may be able to assist you and put your view across.

    Hi guys, I've never really posted on one of these threads before and decided to make myself anon, due to the fact that not many people who know me know about it.

    I've been diagnosed with anxiety and mild OCD by a psychiatrist and then had counselling/CBT for a while last year.
    At certain times of the year (nov-feb), things become very dark for me and I always get so down where my anxiety tends to always come back. This time due to the stress of school which led to 'triggers', I experienced episodes of depression and my family started to notice. It's weird because I go through months where I feel absolutely fine and I think about to those dark months and they're all a blur... but it seems to repeat itself. I just tend to get really negative about things and anxious, as soon as I've got one stress out of the way, I instantly start worrying and stressing about the next thing... right now it's my driving test:-(

    Just wanted to post and talk to anyone who's similar to me or give me some reassuring words. I've looked through this thread and everyone seems very lovely/supportive xx

    I get exactly this!! I was diagnosed with depression and had therapy at the end of year 11 and things got so much better, but every year as pressure built up with school I'd get depressed. I'd usually get better once school finished but it affected my school work.

    Prioritise your mental health. School and your driving test and everything you'll get other chances with. I've finished school now but my depression doesn't get better anymore, and I really wish I'd just given up on school when it was too much. So I guess just don't hesitate to put things off for as long as you need to because its not the end of the world.

    You can PM me if you ever want to talk
