    I got an appointment through for the psychiatrist - 2nd August. That's a relief. I haven't had to wait to long thankfully. Fingers crossed this goes better than the other help I've had so far. Will keep you all updated

    Had my therapy session today not sure how it went, she agreed I need medication but thought councelling wasn't right for me as I was more suffering from extreme anxiety and said it would be better to get a community psychiatric nurse to help me.

    Googling that makes me think they only deal with people with severe mental health problems which makes me feel maybe my problems are worse than I thought.

    Sorry guys I've been busy trying to distract myself from the mess up there and if not I've been crying non stop so I've not been on TSR much and haven't replied to PMs. I'll get around to it soon-ish I hope. I hope everyone here is okay and particularly those who PMd me

    I have those 'clearly horrible' moments and if I'm feeling okay I get so anxious over the pending 'clearly horrible' moments that I'm doomed to face. And if I'm ever feeling good I try to make myself feel crappy again because I'm scared of the sudden transition between feeling good and the 'clearly horrible' moment.

    What is the point in trying to get better? Like in the horrible moments I am so desperate to feel better and get jealous of myself back when things were better, but when I'm actually feeling good I can't enjoy the good feelings.

    Spoiler as it might trigger those with HA

    So you all know that my papa is on the transplant list due to kidney failure and he finally found a match in May after being on the list for a year only to discover the donors organs were sadly too far gone to be used. Well he has been dealt with another blow regarding his transplant. He has some sort of abscess thing on his foot and he has had it for a few months and he thought it was just a boil or a verruca or something minor like that but since he is diabetic, docs have to be very careful with his feet. Turns out its an abscess that has spread to his bone and is very near an artery so there's a good chance of blood poisoning so they are thinking they might need to amputate his foot or toe if the infection doesn't improve with the antibiotics soon. There has been some improvement but not as much as the docs hoped for so he's away to the specialist today to see what his options are. It means that his transplant is on hold. He is still on the list but even if they find a match, he wont be given that due to the infection and if he gets his toe cut off, he still wouldn't get the transplant for a while after that due to needing time to recover from that surgery. Its just been a very big blow to him and the family.

    he has been very down about it which is understandable. He keeps telling my mum he doesn't want to be here any more and he has had enough which who can blame him after everything he has been through health wise over the years and he has even been a funeral director lately to start planning and paying for his funeral which worries me. I know you have to have things like that sorted out when you get to a certain age but it makes me wonder if he knows something is going to happen soon or he is planning something.

    On top of that, we still don't have my best friends lymphoma results back yet so its been a very upsetting and stressing few days and I am hoping for a happy outcome for both of them

    I recently discovered that a lecturer who taught me on my degree who was supportive of my mental health problems has been imprisoned for a serious crime. I feel sick at him and disappointed in myself for previously looking up to him.

    That must be really difficult for you - so sorry to hear that. Don't be so hard on yourself though - you weren't to know :no:

    Confused now as my OCD seems to be worse in the day than at night. Before it was the other way round. Ideally it will be good in the day and at night but it's nice to be able to get some proper sleep now! Was seriously lacking some of that but now it's just nice to be able to relax in bed and just turn in for the night when I want to!
    Very satisfied with that!

    Have two therapy sessions tomorrow! One private and the second group session with the NHS. The first one was better than expected so that was alright! Plus there was a cute girl there of my age, I may try and pluck up the courage to say hi at some point. She seemed really nice and friendly, quiet though, but I'm quiet so I understand that!

    Shall be posting here more again now that I seem to have stabilized at the moment.

    I hope everyone is well! :hugs:

    Indeed. I was rather shocked to discover the same thing about someone I thought was a friend.
