Yo, get your psych appointment.

Oh gosh :frown: Sounds like things are really grim for you. I wish I knew what to say :frown:

One thing I would like to say is try not to worry too much about occupational health check. These things are there to advocate you and to ensure you have the support and reasonable adjustments in place to help you thrive in your workplace. It's there to help you, not to get you sacked or told off or anything. It doesn't mean you're weak or doing a bad job either :nah:

Thanks for the support :smile:. I have my assessment with the CMHT tomorrow, i'm really nervous about what they'll say. It is over the telephone.

I did it!
Technically i probably shouldnt have it off because someone else is already off that day, but cos its for a psych appointment they know all about then ge let me have it off
Iv just bought a beautiful ring for myself.
Feel its part of my healing journey mentally.

I always wore rings through school from about 14 and i dunno where they both went but i miss them!
Iv not worn a ring since i gave my ex back the engagement ring nearly 5 years ago (i should have deffinately kept the ring as it was beautiful) but i was always scared to wear rings again after that as i thought it they had to mean something. But a mate from school makes beautiful jewlery and i came across her etsy site and found the most perfect ring and i fell in love with it a few months ago.

Anyway iv just bought it because why shouldnt i wear a ring? I always felt naked without my rings in school and uni, and they didnt mean anything other than i loved their designs. So as part of my healing and getting back to who i was pre 2013 (which is who i truly am) iv bought myself a ring to keep going with my progress. It was a similar story a few months ago when i bought myself a necklace.

Sorry for delayed reply, been a hectic day this end :eek:

It's understandable to feel nervous. Try to be as honest as you can be and don't downplay or minimise things. Maybe ask someone you trust and who knows about your struggles to help you brainstorm everything you'd need/want to say? Or to create a timeline of when stuff happened, if that's appropriate to your situation?

Thinking of you and wishing you well :hugs:

Silly PERSOM :fuhrer:

Thankyou, its so pretty too.

Cant believe iv put off wearing a ring for nearly 5 years. And that it was nearly 5 years since all that **** blew up and quite publicly here :lol:
Today I went to go and get some lunch in college then I saw these random guys just laughing at me like just staring at me and laughing so I went to to them asking what's up so they started mimicking me and copied me say what's up then started laughing for about 10 seconds at me. I don't even know them guys and I wasn't even doing anything other than walking past them yet they were making fun of me. Im just sick of it and im becoming really self conscious because there's clearly something wrong with me like I have a problem because loads of people make fun of me, ive had teachers laughing at me, ive been laughed at by a mentor and ive been laughed at by so many other students. The guys who were laughing today were just saying that I have autism, they said im an actual r*t*rd like I don't even know them. One of them were saying "this guy man he's ma sp*ast*c" and they all were laughing looking at me and 2 of them were filming me.

I've not done anything and trying to get on with my college course yet everyone is making fun of me. I would go home now but I live far away. Im currently here now trying to hide because im supposed to be in my next lesson but I'm not in the mood and I'm about to cry. My confidence is ruined. People think you can ignore its so hard when everyone has made fun of you all your life and you aren't feeling the best. How can I get my confidence higher?

I think it's understandable you put it off, given all that happened. So proud of you for getting to a point where you feel able to wear one again :lovehug:

Omg reading this made me so sad :frown: because I was treated exactly the same at school and sixth form. It makes me mad as well... who do they think they are, laughing at you just for walking past minding your own business? People like that are the lowest of the low. There is nothing wrong with you- they're the ones with issues. If they were really happy, successful people, they wouldn't be sat mocking you. They are most likely miserable with their own lives, and are projecting their insecurities onto innocent people like you. A happy person wouldn't randomly call strangers a r***** or use autism as an insult. Regardless, what they have said to you is bullying, and you could report them to a teacher, preferably someone higher up like your head of year. Filming you without consent is also illegal.

Dw about it, I am just grateful for your replies :smile:. That's a good idea... my assessment is in the afternoon, so i'll brainstorm my thoughts/emotions in the morning and what I would like to get out of the session.
Just had my assessment with the cmht. They haven't told me what will be happening, but apparently they're going to call me back this evening because they need to have a meeting about me first, to discuss my case. Should I be worried? I literally have no idea what is happening, or what to expect.
I'm so anxious for lockdown lifting :cry: It sounds weird but I'm on Universal Credit and though I'm starting my own business I'm also looking for work. Worried it'll get tougher again and I won't start my business which is my dream on time :frown:

Also just worried in general, I'm moving out of my mum's house in a month or so touch wood and last time I had housemates one of them was a massive control freak bully. As an introvert I'm worried I'll end up with loads of sociable party animals or something :/

I'm sure you have heard by now, but if not it may be that they just need to discuss what to do next. From what you have said it does sound like you are having quite a difficult time at the moment so it may be that they are thinking you need some more urgent support, perhaps crisis team for a period of time. However, it is really rare for CMHT to make a decision straight away without discussing as a team unless the outcome is really obvious.
Didnt get the job, but if im honest i didnt think i would, i knew i didnt have the right experience.

So still at the shop.

Also think i worried my manager today :lol:
We were just sat in the office me doing my work, and he was doing his and out of nowhere i was like "why are drawing pins called drawing pins" he just looked at me like id completely lost the plot :lol:
my head is full of mess where do i cancel my subscription to the self loathing club
Update: I should be seeing their consultant Psychiatrist in 10 days for a medication review. Apparently the crisis/home treatment team will be supporting me until then, but I haven't heard anything from them since I was told about it yesterday evening.
Has anyone ever been triggered by their own body? As in associating certain body parts with certain bad experiences?

And how the **** do you deal with it?

My brain doesn't want to cooperate today. Good one GA.
So so tired.

Really struggled keeping up with motivation today at work.

Not sure if im in a bit of a mixed episode, but im behaving slightly more hypomanic than normal but also depressive attitudes and thoughts creaping through?
Really confused

Their behaviour say a lot about them and nothing what so ever about you. Their behaviour isn't about you really, it's all about them.
The bit about trying really hard but it still wrong really resonates with. :s-smilie:
