    Back from GPs. I'm seeing them again in 4, rather than 2, weeks and I... I just can't stand it any more, I feel lower than at any I ever have today and they can't do anything. He did ask me again how I felt when I was on the antidepressants, but dropped it when I said I couldn't remember... I don't want to do the CBT, the CPN creeps me out and I just can't be bothered with it all.

    I really don't want to be alive right now :cry:

    ETA: Oh, and can anyone explain to me why everything tastes exactly the same and furthermore why, if everything tastes the same I'm still snacking?

    Its really hard to get help isnt it.
    I dont know what ADs you've tried etc but I guess trying a new one might be a good idea? Ask for a different CPN, I think you're well within your rights to.

    I was taken off them (put on them by a locum) by my normal GP after just 3 weeks because they are generally against giving them to under-21s... I just don't know how I'm going to get through my exams without any help at all.

    I know, I might...

    I'm so tired of feeling like this, of crying all the time. I really, really want out now.

    I saw a doctor today. Appointment went fairly well, better than my other two doctors who didn't do much. He asked me a few questions, then got me to fill in a short questionnaire. Then he referred me to a place to have an assessment, and another place for counselling. He wouldn't put me on anti-depressants though, because of my age and he thought I'd just do better with some counselling. Fair enough, I accepted that. So, on the way to progress hopefully .

    Thats silly, if you need ADs then you need them, regardless of your age.. I know it's a ***** but if you can I think you should go and demand them or actually change GPs.

    I hope you feel a bit better soon :hugs:

    I spent a while talking to a psychiatrist on my placement today about my problems, she is really lovely and has slightly given me some hope. I really wish i was her patient but I dont think I can be, arghh.

    :console: I don't quite know what to say, but I really hope you can hang in there. You seem pretty bright so I'm sure you can do well in the exams if you put your heart to it. Is there anything in particular that makes you happy these days that you could do every so often to help raise your spirits? I have never even been allowed ADs, so I'm having to find my own way to cope as well. Good luck though. :jumphug:

    Well it seemed that if it got bad enough they'd consider it. Believe me, I wanted to say 'Can I please just give them another go' when he brought them up but I just couldn't bring myself to physically say it. :cry2:

    Thanks.

    There will be other psychiatrists out there just as good as her that can help you :hugs:

    Thanks. I don't see myself getting through exams at all :erm:

    No, I don;t find anything interesting or good any more. I don't see the point in anything.

    Ah, yeah, some good TV should do you good . I like True Blood too, though I've only seen about the second half of the first series, I'll need to try and catch up on that. Channel 4 doesn't have it on their 4OD though . How are you watching it, DVD or online?

    Both. I'm watching the second half of the last episode of season 1 online (there's a good blogspot site if you search haha) and I have the second season on DVD, which is good as I hate watching things online!

    It's surprisingly good for how very, very un-family friendly it is haha.

    I'm fairly sure that fluoxetine is recommended by NICE for under 18s so for them to refuse anyone under 21 is pretty weird. I started citalopram when I was 18.

    Actually went to college today for a full day. Had to take a load of crap from people tho People are very mean. I bet if I told them how I was feeling and what I've been going through they would soon shut up.

    Been put on referral at college meaning that if I miss a day they with get my mum in for a meeting with me there to discuss everything, and then if I do it again I get kicked out :/ only 3 weeks of proper timetabled lessons tho so it'll be ok.

    Got a ridiculous amount of coursework to do still, as soon as I get something done another thing to do appears. I am really not going to get a good grade at the end of this Actually been feeling a bit better the last 2 days. Kinda scared myself into doing something about my life in general instead of hoping the issues will go away.

    I think that they just want to try to non-medical routes first.
