    OK that doesn't sound like a delusion.
    Depression (and anxiety) can give physical symptoms like headaches, chest tightness, shortness of breath, feeling faint, racing heart etc. Your symptoms to do with your chest sound like anxiety symptoms to be honest.

    There's a really high cross over with a lot of depressed people also having some degree of anxiety, do you think that sounds more likely?
    I had all of those on the obligatory trip to Ikea. How the **** I didn't faint/have a full blown panic attack I don't know. :sigh:

    Hm, I doubt it somehow. I seem to be a very low anxiety person in general, I think. My mother is high anxiety and it's easy to see in her, I'm the opposite to her in this respect.
    It's not really a tightness, it's too long and curved.. it's just, the wrong shape. It doesn't press against any of my organs, it's more like it makes all the flesh on top of it uncomfortable(?) and.. just, like I can feel around each bone and they are wrong and the edges are in the wrong place. It's very difficult to describe. I don't think it is a delusion either, but I also don't think it's anxiety or an actual physical problem. Which means it's just.. an over-awareness of it? But it also seems distorted.

    Although I wish it'd stop permanently, it's not pleasant.

    Are you sure it's me? I can't remember what's on there haha

    Yeah but I don't think it's that. I mean it's nice but it doesn't get rid of the depression.

    It's the same picture as your profile, yes :p:

    of course it doesn't, but it's something for you to focus your thoughts upon, which helps :yep:

    Told you so :wink2:

    I can't seem to come up with a word which fits your asterixes, but I assume it's something along the lines of (politely) lethargic :p: are you going out to celebrate at any point? if not, go and grab yourself an early night :hugs:

    I dont know, everyone's different, including their ridcages! And if you press down on the muscles I think it hurts quite a few people, I just dont think they're meant to be pressed that way.

    -

    Fed up. I keep thinking about a friend that died just over a year ago. Knowing I'll never see her again is hard to really believe and I want to see her so much. I think even if I dont actively think about sad things like this, they're always there in the back of my mind preventing me from being happy. So I guess thats why CBT isnt going to work for me.

    I am kind of nervous about how I'll react anxiety wise but if I'm moving to Manchester in a month, I can handle London for 3 days :yep:

    :hugs: You are not a failure and most people want a quiet life. Maybe try writing exactly how you feel down and giving it to the GP, that way they can't twist your words or whatever.
