    My GP appointment was pretty rubbish. She totally didnt care or show any understanding. Going back in a week and seeing the original GP I saw who was a bit better but still not great. Really hope the fluoxetine starts to work.

    Nah, it's ok, I said it mainly because I wanted sleep... unfortunately, that seems to be as elusive as ever.

    http://www.thestudentroom.co.uk/show...postcount=5135 is pretty much the main friendship stress, even though in the end the protest was pretty pointless, he then posted a smart arse status directed at me about how people are stupid for believing media hype all the time. I've been avoiding him and according to his close mate, when heard this, he called me a female dog. Saw him when I was out briefly earlier and he's ignoring me; I'm ignoring him.

    There's another few friends who are just being ***** at this moment in time for different reasons... not what I need.
    How long have you known this guy? Is he someone you (used to) actually feel close to? Well, that does sound pretty **** and bang out of order. Fair enough you being disillusioned by people at the minute, I'd be incredibly pissed off is someone spoke and treated me like that. Hopefully the dust will settle and things will, in one way or another, resolve themselves.

    EDIT: Also, who's that guy in your avatar? Not usually my type but my god, he is attractive! :p:

    How'd it go?

    Ugh, sorry to here that I've never been to a doc about the way I'm feeling but with other issues, I have experienced them being pretty unsympathetic. Is there no one else you can try seeing?

    I've known him since August, and from then to about November, we were as close as anything. He apparently had a crush on me... up until I told him about my severe depression and self harm. :rolleyes: Which is fair enough, because I was a bit uber scary with the telling. From about December, however, we started to argue a bit more (mainly because he's a ******* alcoholic who doesn't listen to anyone's advice) and since then we've just drifted apart, I guess. Oh, and he now has a brand new, younger girl to tail around after him... so to him, I am redundant. Never felt so stupid for trusting someone so much.

    The worst thing? As I predicted, he's put it all around back onto me. It's my fault I'm in a mood with him, it's me who can't take a joke, it's me who has pushed our friendship apart. Arrogant sod.

    How are you all?
    I'm not on any meds or anything but has anyone else experienced sever lack of energy/persistant headaches and lack of appetite? Got my exams around the corner and I just feel so....bllaaahh, I'm finding it really hard to focus. I just want to sleep.

    Also has anyone got any advice about going on holiday? Its my first holiday without my family, I'm going with a couple of friends who I haven't told about my issues, I don't want to be a downer on them but I'm SO scared about going, I'm worried that my anxiety will ruin everything, when I'm anxious I can't eat and a whole 7 days of not eating right will probably take its toll on me and I don't want to scare my friends...I don't want to be held back in life because of my anxiety but at the same time I just don't want to go and end up a shivering wreck...they are all so excited but I'm just so scared!!

    Have you tried Kalms? They're herbal calmers that I've heard can just take the edge off of severe anxiety... Won't solve it but for a short term fix, apparently they're good. I take their sleeping tablets occasionally.

    I currently suffer from lack of energy and lack of appetite

    I had the exact same problem when I went to see the doctor. He asked me if I had any friends and I said yes and just felt like a fraud because everything seems ok in my life right now but despite that I'm still :cry: . Don't worry about it though, just let your doctor know how you've been feeling at your lowest, obviously you aren't going to feel low all the time, thats the worst part about this whole thing, the mood swings...the instability, the uncertainty of how you are going to be feeling from one moment to the next. Good luck and you are doing the right thing by seeking help :hugs:

    Thanks for the recommendation ( and I'm meant to be the pharmacist in training lol). They don't mess you up do they? I think I might try them a few days before I go on holiday and see how it helps. I just want something to help me get over the shaking and the lack of appetite, then I can sort out my head when I come back. Its not fun being a wreck as you probably know. I was a mess before going to Uni, my mum was so scared, I just lay in bed shivering and not getting any sleep...

    How are you doing anyway, sorry to hear you are suffering as well :hugs:

    Try to eat more. Not eating enough = feeling really tired and just basically ****. Just try to force yourself to get what your body needs and you'll start feeling better :hugs:

    I honestly don't know, the sleeping tablets don't seem to do anything too bad to me... If you're not going immediately, you could try them for a bit?

    Stressed to the hilt, haven't heard from my Dad yet to let us know he's got there fine, friends as chronicled above, got a job interview for Wetherspoons (:yy:) in the next few weeks, driving is going awful, and college is just piling all the work on! Arhh! I'm going to go swimming either tonight or tomorrow to blast some stress off, lol!

    Thanks :hugs: I'm trying to eat foods high in calories to make up for it. Just dont want to get any thinner, I've spent enough money on a new waldrobe, don't want to have to buy anymore clothes just to change dress size again. How are you? Did you manage to sort out student finance?

    Alright I think I'll give them a try and stick to my chamomile tea too.
    I'm sure you'll hear from your dad soon, like they say no news is good news. I hope your interview goes well, I think the swimming will help ease the stress, I should really get back into an exercise routine, I used to feel so good when I went to the gym, I've become so unfit. ....guess its back to revision for me...5 more years of this minimum....heaven help me :cry:

    :hugs: Just keep at it, it'll be worth it :yep:

    Me? I'm cold, tired and dazed. My fault and am about to rectify it, but the cold won't go away - that requires me to turn on the heating haha. I'm still fed up of 'friends', I think I just want to be left alone right now...

    Yeah I did, but I have to send off the 'yes I did do it, yes give me money now plz kthnaxbai' or whatever form :dry:

    ETA: Oh and do not start exercising until you've sorted out eating enough, seriously, you'll just feel worse. Plus, you'll have to eat even more to try and stay healthy and happy, which is hard when you don't have much of an appetite.

    Was alright I guess :o: I explained to her all the problems/anxieties/anger outbursts I were going through.

    It didn't seem like she was taking much in and just throwing clichéd statements back like 'its fine' etc. I did expect that a bit but now I've been forwarded to a counsellor which is good

    Felt a bit **** on the way home but treated myself to a steak lunch so I'm alright now

    Scared of counselling still though

    I'm glad you sorted out the finance in the end, its so much hassle, at one point in contemplated just living in a tent. :rolleyes:

    Good point about the exercise! Don't worry I'll sort out my appetite before I start getting into any vigours excerise routines. I don't really want to loose any more weight anyway, I just want to be able to climb a flight of stairs without having to gasp for breath. Like they say a healthy body is a healthy mind and neither of mine are healthy at the moment.

    Concerning your friends, don't alienate them ( worst thing you can ever do), let them know that you are going through a tough time and that you just need a bit of space but you still appreciate them. Communicate with them and let them know what is happening because nine times out of ten people will just jump to conclusions assuming that its something they have done.

    Yeah, if you don't look after your body in terms of eating enough it definitely doesn't help your mind!

    I don't want to socialise though and I'm fed up of the friendship politics and the backstabbing and the *****ing. That's why I spend a lot of my time in the library working - I can avoid all of that.

    I can relate! I had years of that, drove me crazy. If its any comfort, it generally gets better when you go to Uni. People tend to have more important things to worry about than pointless backstabbing. :hugs: It wont be long till its over anyway, just focus on you and your happiness. :yep:

    If kalms don't help you could see your gp and there's tons of things they could give you to make you feel more relaxed etc. I'm terrified of planes so always have to get something beforehand and it works pretty well.

    I'm ok thanks Saber, how are you feeling today?
    Glad to hear you're alright.

    I'm not bad, been feeling awful past few days trying to get an essay done and finally finished it at 5am this morning. woo.

    Thanks, hopefully Kalms will do the trick, its just that initial transition of flying and getting to the new destination/being in a completely different country. I just need to keep telling myself I'll be ok as opposed to psyching myself up for an attack.

    I can't sleep lately.....the reason for this is because I think during the day how i'm going to sleep at night which prevents me from sleeping.
    Also when i'm in bed, I close my eyes and say to myself i'm gonna sleep but I eventually give up! :facepalm:
    I had 2 hours sleep last night and feel like ****. I've even got exams around the corner, and I can revise or think straight. :cry2:
    Also, I my legs feel shaky and I feel like i've got no energy.

    Could someone please give me some tips on how to get to sleep quicker. It took me 4 hours! It's never took me soo long. :eek3:
