    I've been given £500 by my parents... it's by no means a massive amount of money, but if I looked hard enough I could very easily deferred uni for the year, get a better job out of the pub industry and buy myself a car and a horse out of my savings. Would be a damn stupid idea mind.
    :hugs: Uni is something that gives you the opportunity to be around other people though

    hi, I was officially diagnosed with depression by my GP earlier this year, but tbh, ive had the syptomns since I was like 13, but no-one ever did anything about it and I never really talked to anyone about it, only because I opened up to my mum that I saw the GP about it even.

    I basically get really, really low alot of the time, like I cant find the motivation for anything and I cant seem to feel happy with anything I do and ****, which pretty much sucks, but I try and keep on through, problem is that stuff in my life has a habbit of going wrong

    im on anti-depressants now since February, so 6 months (wow, really been that long), my GP has advised me to stay on them while im at Uni aswel, I guess they are working to an extent, cause I have more good days atm, but tbh I still feel pretty low much of the time.

    anyway, thats my story, hopefully going to Uni will help, part of the reason I feel low is because I dont really have any friends, so hopefully I can make some on my degree.

    Explain what you mean.

    Dont listen to her, everything is worth a shot.

    I realised it was a bad idea, I do however have access to enough painkillers to kill a bear (I worked it out per kg of BW) and I have looked at other better methords. I dont know yet.
    I'm not even sure what I mean. Like when I think back on every single thing in my life I either think "why the **** did I do that? wtf" or I think "should have done this instead...". These things can't be undone, it's not like going up to someone and saying sorry (which I have done and it didn't change anything), I would need to completely erase me from the earth and then be born again as someone else to start again and do things right. I told my psychiatrist some of these things and she was like ":eek: Oh I mean......:unsure:".


    Yeah...it's not a very good idea, nor are the painkillers tbh though. What's made you decide about this? Part of me wants to ask was it the results, but I don't really imagine it was.

    Hey there. I know the no motivation and nothing making you feel much better kind of feelings, they suck, but at least the antidepressants are working for you a bit that's a really good thing. Uni can really help people because there are so many new experiences and people and **** to do that it can make you feel a bit better. Keep an open mind about it though, are you in halls? that's a pretty good way of making friends, and just talking to everyone, on your course at the pub whatever. Don't be afraid to try new things either, unis have loads of sports and societies so you can normally meet people into the same kind of things as you. But yeah, keep a positive mind about it and tbh most people I know really ******* enjoyed uni.

    Most unis seem to have days when all the societies will go to one place and you just wander about asking people about their societies, it's cool (if only for the free sweets ). For most, they're either going to be free all the time, or free for the first few sessions, so going to as many as possible in anything you're even a tiny bit interested in won't hurt you and you might find that you really enjoy something you hadn't really considered before. :yy: meet more people, make possibly more friends, find new hobbies, it's good.

    What uni are you going to? I've got about 5 or 6 different societies/sports I want to try out and join, go for as many as you think you'd find interesting and then have a look at their stalls during the freshers week fair and see which takes your fancy

    Ha! Wow...I've managed to screw up pretty much all my relationships with people this summer because I'm so pathetic. Only I am able to go from finally finding the perfect friends to making everyone despise me. Going back to Uni is going to be fun...I should actually just stay away from people because I just disappoint everyone, I don't deserve and I'm not worthy of the people in my life....I'm such a disappointment, how can I get everything so wrong everyone else manages to get it right? I'm so **** I'll never be what/who I'm meant to be. **** it!

    Sounds like a pretty good idea to start it now; more you do now, less you have to worry about later. Plus it'll help pass the time for you. Win-win. :yy:

    Nah, I managed that too once.

    If you really have screwed everything up, though tbh these people probably don't hate you and possibly will talk to you again (if I'm wrong ok I'm sorry), you're going back to uni right? You managed to make friends last tiem, you made friends at school so why wouldn't you be able to meet new people?

    Well that was a complete waste of time. Just spent the day doing **** all, it's not therapy in anyway shape or form, they're too scared of upsetting people to press any issues and they don't actually do any therapy sessions, it's all sitting as a group and focusing on anything other than what you think and feel. I'm going to ask tomorrow if there's any chance I can be released early and do something like CBT, anything would be better than that.

    Despite everything I've been through and everything I'm still going through, and everything I'm inevitably going to have to go through, I've never actually felt truly suicidal before. Yet now, I'm really seeing nothing for me anymore, and I don't want to face that inevitability either, I just want freedom from it all now, nothing more.

    :hugs: Things will improve for you, they always do. And uni isn't that far away, just a few weeks until you can go back. Would moving in to your house/flat as soon as you can help?

    I already am, I've been here all summer (and all year before) :sigh: I have nowhere else to go, no family. Some things will improve, I'm sure, but only some, most things are already final and can't possibly be changed, and they're not a good final either. I am so lonely, and there's nobody here but me, I can't go anywhere because of the massive negative in my bank balance. I'm just pointlessly prolonging the inevitable now, I have nothing else left :sigh:
