Bumped into an old friend from school, i didnt know i needed this conversation but honestly it made me feel a lot better. I've been so down with work and everything and just feeling stressed and tired.
We had a catch up, not in a competitive way or anything just genuine excitement to see one another. I've yet to tell anyone else inrl outside of my family what i actually do and although i am knackered and have a banging headache it did feel quite cool to say i work on jet suits.
I said i want to eventually work my way into the design side and she said within a year or two i'll be flying (not literally - i'll leave the pilots to do that, i've felt the weight of those suits ) which was really nice and reassuring to hear.

Finally organised a pre payment certificate for my meds as i should hopefully pick my new meds up tomorrow, and i get my mirtaz plus my inhaler every so often so works out cheaper now.

Had a really good day at work today but im so exhausted now. Need to get up and hang my washing out to dry but that feels like a mamoth task...

Hope everyone is doing okay. Life’s kinda chaotic for me atm. So I am fully taking Dory’s advice: “just keep swimming”

Just a rant I guess.

called up my CMHT yesterday because things are actually really, acutely bad in basically every dimension at this point. I am struggling a lot. Wish they would understand this and do something to help me.
:console:

Sorry to hear you aren't getting the support you deserve

These meetings with people we haven't seeen for ages are particularly special at the moment - I think working is always tough when you go out in the dark and get back home in the dark :hugs:

So my new meds have a pretty serious side effect that the psych and dr have warned me about and made sure i fully understood before starting it.

Quiet in here today :ninja: Sending hugs and strength to anyone who needs it :grouphugs: Hugs also to those affected by seasonal weather, or for whom the prospect of Christmas feels quite bleak

I had a right palaver with my care this week. Sat on the NHS waiting list for further therapy for nearly a year, had the assessment with the psychologist, who decided I didn't need more therapy. (Which is fair enough - I'm disappointed but I see/understand/accept her logic.) Turns out the psychologist then went and wrote to my team saying I seem really normal and that I shouldn't have been allocated a CPN and should be taken off my CPA :mad: What a *****! :security: So I had to kick up a fuss (as did my nurse) for things to stay as they were (CPA, involving a CPN) :mob:

So yeah, all end alright for me in the end, but it was scary. So extra-special hugs to those who are struggling to get the support they need from loved ones, mental health charities, or the NHS :grouphugs:

How can she decide that after one time of meeting you? And surely a psychiatrist overules a psychologist?

But so glad its all been sorted :hugs:

That first bit is exactly what I said to nurse, who agreed. Nurse seemed pretty pissed off that she was being told what to do by someone who'd only met me once. Yeah, I guess psychiatrist would overrule psychologist opinion anyway

Hope you're holding up OK with the new meds? :hugs:

Thank you
Atleast the people that know you agreed with you and have basically ignored the psycologist :yep:

Im just hoping it helps, apparently the one im on helps with the depressive side so that added with the AD should HOPEFULLY mean i dont get depressive episodes but im hoping it also means i keep the hypos

Sorry I've been fairly quiet as of late. Things are just bad I guess and I don't have the energy to really support people anymore. I do hope you are all OK and if I don't reply to your quotes, it's nothing personal. I'm just not myself at the moment and very minor things are overwhelming me more than I care to admit, which of course means other things are worse.

Anyway, do take care. Just a small check in.

I am so sorry to hear that. I really do hope things get better for you. I know these niceties and platitudes do not change much, but I do mean it when I say that you strike me as someone that is stronger than they know and that you are worthy of happiness.
Do not feel the need to reply to this, trust me I know what you mean with being overwhelmed and not able to reply to messages. Take care x

want to get this off my chest quickly:

Spoiler:

Feeling really lost and hopeless. Nothing excites me, and I have no energy.

Every day just feels like an obligation. Just wish I was different.

The only person that can change things is me, but can't do that when I barely have the energy to function like a normal human lol. will just need to remind myself to hold on tight. A **** phase of life does not mean a **** forever.

my head is telling me l am so big at the moment. I’ve noticed myself spending too much time looking at recipes that I will never make and it’s so scary. I’ve got blood tests this week and need to get the courage to ring the ED service but I’m so worried they’ll say I’m not underweight enough for help despite knowing I meet the criteria for AN because they are so overwhelmed at the minute. I’ve got friends and family who are helping as much as they can but I know that if I’m going to keep myself ok I’m going to have to get some form of help even though the whole refeeding process is so scary and I really don’t know if I want to go through it all over again. My course is going ok though - nearly Christmas now which is good as I can enjoy a break . Who knew it would all be so addictively interesting!
