    Yeah but I'm blatently never going to be someone that lives their life to the full, well not any more so than now. I've told my GP about not being sure about uni and she just says you shouldn't make big decisions when you're depressed and there's never really time to talk about it.

    But basically I've done 4 of 5 years so I shouldnt really quit. I'm doing a different degree (just health sciences) this year, mainly because I don't feel ready for finals/working. And I'm glad it means I won't see any patients this year but really I just can't be bothered.

    Thanks Steffi and sauce too. I could probably defer a year but I doubt I'd really enjoy the year off, I'd just be delaying the inevitable..

    Anyway sorry I'm being really moany, hope everyone else is feeling better?
    Do you have anyone other than your GP who you can talk to this about? CPN or crisis team?

    Didn't eat anything yesterday... Bah a handful of dried fruit :/ Then today I went and properly pigged out... Binged my way through a massive chinese, with dessert, then half a big bag of Malteasers whilst watching a movie.

    Mood has largely been good, much better than yesterday, but I can feel it starting to tail off again... Blahhhhh...

    Was meant to be meeting the ex for coffee to smooth things over tomorrow afternoon but apart from a 'yeah ok' reply to one text this morning at 10am, he hasn't given me any indication that he'll be there. I know I'm stressing about the small stuff but it's what I'm clinging onto right now.

    At least you're still in med school. I'm in the middle of being chucked out because basically I waited far too long to get help and buggered up all my exams. I've only just been diagnosed with depression because my parents forced me to see a psychiatrist.

    And now I'm sitting alone in the house on a Friday night because no one gives a crap about me. I hate my life.

    I'm still here, it's always a good sign :yy: Trying hard not to bury my head in the sand but I'm slowly learning to use the help I'm being given, I think.

    :console: It's ok... Where are you, at home? Is anyone still up you can talk to, a friend you can call? Or the crisis team? They'll pass, you just have to hang in there. Keep yourself safe and be stronger than them. You can do this.

    Yes, but depressive feelings don't just disappear, even if you attend university. You will have to work at it.

    Ah ****. Nice low I'm having. But at least I know there are happy times, and far more of them now than lows. You will all get there too :hugs:

    You might want to end the earlier post, it could be really triggering to the most vulnerable in here.

    I know it was but people can read into those sort of things what they want. I was just too tired to phrase the sentence in a non-moody/nasty way.

    depression doesn't turn you into a retard, nor does it strip away your sense of humour. relax.

    **** it, I can't be bothered to explain it to you. It was the image you created, ok?

    BTW, I'm in a ******* **** mood tonight which is why I'm being *****y, but I would have still picked you up on that.
