    Can you call the crisis team even if you're not suicidal or planning to hurt yourself? I just feel unusually low and this has happened over a matter of days. I feel helpless and I don't know what to do about it. I am worried it will get worse and when this has happened in the past it ends with an overdose (have done this 3 times and always regret it).
    I don't know my keyworkers number and the office closes at 5.

    Help?
    They're there to help, give them a ring. I doubt they'd be upset with you calling, but if they are, sod them and call Samaritans instead. :hugs:

    I have no idea but I don't see why they'd mind? Or you could try a helpling like Samaritans? I don't know.

    I'm thinking of taking a few days off this site, I'm just so ******* fed up with the ignorance of some people on here, those that have a go at me helping others and spending time uploading resources only to get negged by some idiot who can't work out how to access them and doesn't have the intelligence to send me a simple PM asking about it.

    But it's mainly the ignorance and people haveing a go at me for trying to help, it doesn't help me - it makes me feel so much lower when idiots do that.

    My brother hasn't helped matters either being a general douche to me and then calling me gay, which I can't be bothered to go into right now. Sounds juvenile but he's just getting to me by thinking he's so 'hard' and cool and being horrible to me at every available opportunity and making fun of my faith, which is one of the few things keeping me going right now.

    It makes sense. :yep: Is it your mind or body that feels tired? (If that makes sense haha).

    I'm really feeling the strain of not having anyone I can talk to or trust right now, no counsellor or anything and... I can't take it, I don't know how I'm going to get through this at all.

    Is there a teacher or tutor or friend you could go talk to? Teachers can be pretty lovely and they don't have a waiting list..

    I'm feeling kind of okay today. I've been pretty productive, although not on the work front, but hmm. And I think my CBT psychologist is growing on me a bit. I need to make goals for homework, argh.

    I go and talk to the sixth form mentor every now and again but she's always busy and obviously I can't talk to her during half term/the summer holidays. There's no one I call up and say 'I'm really not doing well can I see you ASAP?' And I'm too worried that my parents will overhearme and worry to call the Samaritans or anything like that. And friends... I don't even want to go into that but I have no one I can rely on/feel comfortable enough/know will understand to talk to.

    That's good that you're getting on with them. :yep:

    Can I just take this space to rant about how awful people are to each other? Be it on a small scale with ignorance/refusal to be kind and only to attack or on a large scale with wars etc. People suck :nothing:

    You could probably email your sixth form mentor even in the holidays.. I've emailed tutors and stuff before and it seems weird at first but I have found it helpful. And actually they might still suggest meeting outside of school-time. I'm sure she is busy but if you give her some idea of how bad things are then I'm sure she can make time for you.

    Yeah a lot of people are horrible and rubbish. But there are some truly good people out there too :hugs:

    I'm not sure if she even checks her emails. I might email her asking if I can see her after the half term though...

    I know, but they work so hard and yet the horrible people don't change :sad: Sorry if I'm bringing down the mood of this thread more, just ignore me.

    We open the pub for the first time, for 'live training'. Basically, members of the public are invited in, they get a voucher for a specific meal and drink, and then we work as if it's a normal day. I'm doing 9am til 1pm which means one thing - breakfast. Coffee. Machine thing. Scary.

    I can't do this. In the training this afternoon I couldn't stop pacing and I was near to bolting out of the pub when one of our trainers started to get really stressed at something random that hadn't been delivered and started shouting. :o:

    :hugs: It's going to be stressy because it's just opening but it will calm down and hopefully tomorrow will be calmer for you. And coffee machines are scary :yep: If you can, just stay calm, make sure you're breathing properly etc and remember that nothing there can harm you, it's a safe environment and you can take time to calm down :console:

    Ehehe, drunk people can harm me, but I can take them! :p: Besides, the people of my town won't be drunk at 9am in the morning... I think. Tomorrow will be interesting. Scary. But interesting. The staggered shift times is throwing me off because I won't be with another person all the time... :o: I made a cappucino off the machine the other day and they said it was ok, but I'm not sure I can repeat it and remember everything else. :/

    Right, everyone. We are going to make a depsoc meet work. I think it should be held in August sometime, when everyone will be free from uni/school/etc. I'm open to suggestions mind. Additionally, we need to decide a location. What do people think? London?

    Post ideas. I'll see if I can get a mod to make a thread about this somewhere where we can all access it but not have too many trolls show up...

    I think London sounds good, it's easy enough for me to get to . Though, I have a camp and a holiday happening in much of August, so I won't have much of it free. I guess I'll just wait and see what everyone else decides though?

    But you're not going to be left completely on your own, so there's somebody else to share the stress with :yep: It'll become natural to you soon, maybe a week or so of dodgy cappucinos, but it won't take long for it to become second nature for you :hugs:

    I've just realised I'm not officially a member of this soc - I'm an intruder :woo:

    I'm kind of hyper :erm: Ah, the mood improving powers of mashed potato with sausages stuck in to make it like a hedgehog, veg in a circle around it for leaves and gravy for mud... I was feeling down so thought I'd play with my food a bit to encourage me to actually eat properly

    The stress of exams is going to hit me again in about 10 minutes I think. I'll go complain in the revision thread today... I think I'm more worried about having another really long panic attack and crying again before my exam like last time TBH, but what can I do about that? :dontknow:

    Also, what the hell has happened to my... Words. Oh great, I really can't think properly today. What I'm trying to say is that all of the above doesn't make much sense...
