no councellor (long rant) Watch
yes im missing my friends but its more my mother driving me around the twist. im getting so stressed out. results are soon (failed first time) - mother putting alot of pressure on me. she doesnt talk to me, even if i initiate the conversation. she keeps teasing me about me missing my boyfriend, and how she is getting a really embarassing fancy dress costume for my 18th. im not being treated like a 17 year old, nearly 18. she likes humilliating me, even to the extent that she gets my spots in public.
sorry just needed to get that off my chest.
I completely understand how it feels to suddenly lose the support and guidance of a counsellor; the same thing happened to me last summer. I finished my counselling in the June (had my counselling at college too) and then i spent the summer without counselling and it was very, very tough. I tried to book myself in to see a new counsellor through a private company but the waiting list was so long that i didn't get seen in the summer. I ended up emailing the samaritans a lot, and dropped in once to see someone face to face. It really helped me get through those really tough days (i would also like to add i wasn't suicidal, many people have the misconception that the Samaritans is just to help those with suicidal feelings, it's not). Could you try talking to your friends? I know that helped me an awful lot, as did going for long walks/ runs and taking time out for myself to think and unwind (i'm very fortunate to live about 3 minutes away from huge parks/ fields and rivers). Hang on in there, it won't be this bad forever, i promise.
very good idea. could do with that but i am unable as college email is down over summer - you cant access it.
But, you do have an excellent taste in music, 'cause let's face it, the ol' Barenakeds rock. I'd love to give some great advice, but really, I'd just listen to music to take my mind off of it until the ol' boyfriend got back. Not that I have an old boyfriend.
if i do pass it will be my 3rd year, and i only get on with a select few people, and the closest people are going to uni. im dreading results because it also means my boyfriend will be going to coventry. i think im so low because i have had no contact with him. uni will be fine compared to this.
thanks for the help. alot of the barenaked ladies' songs make me think about him. and im prone to random crying. lol
