    Nice to meet you too. i am doing marketing and am starting to get knee deep in work already - and am avoiding it like the plague. i am in my first year, so with a year work placement in 3rd year (which i am absolutely petrified about), still got a while left yet. ah well you nearly finished then, any thing lined up after uni?
    hopefully going to the US of A. I applied to bunac and had my interview on sunday - i think it went crap so i have to wait and see if they accept me! I spent 5 years in and out of uni and that is kinda why i'm so cranky - i went to 3 different uni's and i've been miserable at all of them I hope you enjoy your course and uni

    I wasn't being serious when I said I was being serious... seriously.


    I apologise on behalf of myself, I am very sleep deprived.

    You should be able to get one pretty easily though, just a bugger they didn't give you one. How weird.


    Just finished watching second season of Blackadder. Pretty worried as I'm meeting my new psychiatrist tomorrow :afraid: I hate doctors and I hate new people so it should be great fun.

    Whats up mate. Don't worry about not being able to go to sleep, yeah you might not feel excellent tomorrow, but when your body is ready to go to sleep, it will. One of the worst things about not being able to sleep is worrying about not being able to sleep.

    Anyway what are you up to lately.

    I didn't sleep last night either though - I was awake til 8am and I only got two hours sleep. I feel completely exhausted but I just can't sleep. It's a while since I've had insomnia, forgot just how bad it is.

    Not really up to anything, just sitting around feeling sorry for myself. How bout you?

    I'm not really up to anything either. One thing that may help is to turn lights off in your room (and turn your computer light down-brightness etc), it should help alot but don't worry if you can't sleep after having done that.

    The reason you didn't sleep last night is that for some reason your body/brain didn't want to. Don't feel stressed that you aren't sleeping just because you normally would or most people are. I'd also suggest not sleeping during the day if you are doing that.

    No I havn't been up to much either, I'm up late actually and I'm taking the opportunity to get some 'jobs' done (like washing clothes).
    I know this might sound crazy but if you just can't sleep try doing some jobs like that (that don't require alot of concentration) because you might then sleep better knowing that you havn't got alot to do afterwards (more relaxed once they are done), have you tried taking anything for it?

    I know I keep saying it, but don't worry that you can't sleep

    I'm already sitting in the dark... it's not helping.

    I actually know why I can't sleep - I was on mirtazapine which helped me get to sleep, but I got taken off it and my new antidepressant doesn't have the same effect. I'm supposed to be on something else as well which should help me sleep, but the pharmacy had to order it in for tomorrow.

    Hmm, I actually can't think of a single thing I really need to do... except for the recycling, which would involve going outside.

    The worst thing is it's horrible trying to get to sleep, because when there's nothing to distract me my thoughts just get worse and worse.

    **** it. Think it might be time for a south park marathon...

    I think I know what you mean by your thoughts get 'worse'. When I'm alone and there is nothing to distract me I think about my suicide attempt and what would have happened if I did in fact succeed. I think about if I'll ever die by suicide in the future (not that I have any robust plans at the moment, but if I ever will, you know...?). I also think about how people would have dealt with it and how they would have felt, how it would have effected them etc etc. I think that if I did succeed, my body would be 'turned off' (dead) about 6 feet underground, in my grave. Sad I know, but this is what depression does, so don't feel bad about talking about what you think about when alone, what do you think about (you say your thoughts get worse etc)?

    Yeah have a southpark marathon if thats what you fancy. One of the things I had when I had insomnia however is that I didn't sleep at night but did during the day, which completely messed everything up (lecturer's don't do lectures at 2am!), do don't just have a nap tomorrow, stay awake during the day and sleep at night, once you start to beat insomnia make sure that your sleep pattern isn't effected like mine was.

    I'd rather not talk about it just now - talking about it means thinking about it and I've just felt too ****** up already today.

    I know all about messed up sleeping patterns, I've had trouble sleeping for years. For some reason I've always found it easier to sleep during the day too.

    On with the next episode...

    OK, its right not to put unnecessary stress on yourself, however don't feel you need to keep it inside (if you'd prefer to PM me thats fine, many people have, and I have them too ).

    I'll be online for about another hour, then I'm off, just to let you know.

    ...
    Basically I have a very good mate who is slowly drinking himself to death :yy: He's a few years older than me but definitely not any wiser :rolleyes: We were just discussing how every time we see him, there is some kind of alcohol involved; going down town requires a stop at the pub for a pint, going out requires a stop by Tesco to the drink aisle, going for a night out (like tonight) means he gets so drunk he ends up offending everyone... He lectures me a lot about how I shouldn't drink so much, I shouldn't smoke (I only smoke when I can bum a cigarette off someone and I'm either very, very stressed or very drunk - I've smoked about 10 cigarettes in my entire life) and I shouldn't self harm because it doesn't help. He does all these things (I see his alcoholism as a form of self harm) and I honestly believe that he's using it as a coping method for his ex who cheated on him twice last summer who he's blatantly not over yet. He doesn't see his drinking as a problem but it's starting to affect how we get along because I just can't be bothered to take what he throws at me when he's drunk, whether it's snogging my best mate or invading my private works party... It's really getting to me now. He's got a slight heart murmur, dodgy kidneys and in October was quite ill with a liver infection but none of this seems to bother him? It bothers me. For a long time he was the one I turned to and if I lose him, I don't know how I'd carry on. He makes me smile when he comes on MSN, he texts me all the time, we can chat for hours when he's not drinking. But when he's drinking - he doesn't do 'one pint' drinking, it's all or nothing - he's a complete and utter ********. Unfortunately, drinking is a pretty much daily thing for him and so we're falling out a lot.
