    I've given up. No matter how much I'm promised things will get better they only get worse and worse. Have a bizarre feeling things are drawing to a close now. Maybe that would be for the best.

    Sorry for the downer

    SHOWERED oh yeah i'm over proud about that one.
    One of my friends can't make it but I am not really that bothered so that's kinda good too.
    ...But... I just got a phone call from the GP about my meds. Apparently they aren't allowed to perscribe what I was given before so i'll have to take a slightly different med. The dose is twice as much and the change will happen like the day of my exam. Not good. I can talk to the doc I got them from before and get the same but that'll cost me money. Things just got really confusing. I may make the change cos then i'll at least have a better case for screwing up my exams but that's just stupid isn't it?
    I've got long term, short term, physical, mental, economic and gerneral effort pros and cons to weigh up. It sounds like such a simple decision but it's actually so complicated.

    I went private to start with cos otherwise it would've taken 2 months just to be seen. This is my first perscription from my normal practice and they aren't allowed to give it cos it's too expensive or something.
    I already have a note for special consideration but how i'm feeling that just ain't gunna cover it. If I start a new med and i'm all over the place with side effects and throwing up like last time i'll have a decent excuse to not take the exam and get the grade I would have if it weren't for this damn episode. I know I absolutely deserve my target grades cos that's the level i've been working at all year but I can't focus at all at the moment so I may not be able to do as well as I should. I'll only get up to 2% added for special concideration but if I miss the exam for a decent reason i'll probably get my predicted grades given. I just don't think that's really moraly right. I'm not going to do as well as I should because of this episode but I feel like that would be playing the system (and i'm not even sure it would work) so I don't want to do it although it'll give me the grades I deserve. so conflicted. Hopefully if I give it a few hours i'll be able to sort it out better. No use making a rash decision on the spot.

    The waiting lists are a joke, I'm still waiting.

    That's ridiculous, try seeing a different GP? Sometimes certain GPs are more...likely to listen than others. I have tramadol on prescription for endometriosis, and I had one GP basically laugh t me and tell me there was nothing they could give me for 'period pain' and to just get on with it, so I went to a different one who prescribed me tramadol and was understanding. Don't know if this will work with you but it's worth a shot.

    I get what you mean, I have a friend who couldn't sit her exams because of an illness and she got her preicteds. It seems really unfair if you don't get what you deserve. I wouldn't say it's not morally right, I mean you've done the work, it's the system that's ****ed up. I hope you can decide what's best for you :hugs:

    Thanks. I think it's my entire surgery doesn't have permission to give it though so that may not work.

    Thanks for the support x

    Remember that you have a say in this - would it be better to wat until after your exam in case you get quite bad side effects? Might be something to consider?

    If you don't mind me asking, what was it that they weren't allowed to prescribe?

    That's really bad! :eek: There are NSAIDs specifically for period pain... Also, Endometriosis is a bit more than "just period pain..." Thankfully my GP's been great with helping me find a way to make my periods a bit better.

    I can't take NSAIDS they make me wheezy. Luckily I have a much better GP than that one though so it's fine, some people have no idea how bad it can be

    I consulted my private doc and he said it should be fine so I'm going to make the change ASAP. Thanks for the advice
    No I don't mind at all. It was Cipralex (eciatalopram).

    You're really too hard on yourself about over-attachment, especially with a therapist. It's VERY common in therapy to attach to the therapist and it's up to the therapist to address it gently but firmly and set boundary lines that are clear and safe and comfortable for both parties. Look at the Wikipedia article on transference, if you haven't already: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Transference
    I guess so. Just abit bleh about the chances of it happening and not even being aware of it and at the time even thinking what I was doing was completely fine. I don't know. Just going to have to make a concerted effort to make sure I don't attach to anyone and make sure I keep my distance with people. I evidently can't be trusted with boundaries.

    Saw my study coach today. Every time I talk about my dissertation I just end up crying. All my instincts are telling me I need to push myself further to do work on it, but my study coach wants me not to do that, and only do work when I genuinely want to. If I do what I think then I might get more work done, but my mental health will suffer, leading to lower quality work. But if I do what he thinks then I don't see how I'll get it done ever.

    I'm on that, I've actually got on with it quite well. I've hated every other thing I've ever taken and with this found I had hardly any side effects, other than a bit of anxiety and the burning. They gave me diazepam to help get over the initial part, maybe that's something you could ask about!
