    If I end up how I was just a few weeks/months ago, there is no way I'll cope at uni. I'll end up dead/in hospital.



    Since the weekend, roughly. I didn't feel like this at all before the implant was put in but that might be a coincidence.
    Sorry to hear that :console:. Still, you got through the stressful A Levels. And uni's supposed to be really great, so you never know, maybe the new experiences you'll have there will do you some good

    I'm still going to uni, I'm too stubborn to not go now. I just, I dunno. I'm in the 'if I didn't exist' stage which beats being a few stages worse than that. Oh well, can't always been 100%
    I dont mean not go too uni.. but if its getting too much then try get an appointment with your GP before you go and see what they recommend/think about the implant?

    I have spoken to them. The implant was pretty much my only option. I did get it over the injection because it could be taken out ASAP if it made me depressed.

    Next big decision: When to start cutting the meds down. Prob not good yet tbh. 2 massive changed happening in my life this week, both very stressful and seeing as stress is a trigger for the anxiety and therefore the depression might be best to stay on the usual dose for a few more weeks.

    That sounds like the best idea until some of the stress is gone. Good luck!

    Sorry, I didnt mean that to sound so self superior. I meant to kind of ask about the severity that some one would consider killing themselves but I realise catergorising my own problems made it sound like I think I have it worse then most people as I understand it is relative. I guess I was just trying to fit in an outlet of my own problems somewhere amongst my question.

    ofcourse I dont? i didnt mean to make it sound like I was in it for that, I was just reacting slightly negatively to what you were saying.

    My opinion (thorugh own opinion) is that it is also sometimes cognitive. I dont mean this in the way most people describe "it all being in your head" and therefore easily treatable. I think that in such cases its down to our perspectives and how we percieve the world in a negative fashion. Ie someone who interprets peoples actions as malicious and offensive is going to be arguabley more anxious and depressed then someone who eitehr doesnt focus on the motives behind peoples actions or percieves them in a positive fashion.

    I am not trying to make out I know as much or more then you I was just throwing that out there.
    Don't worry, I was being a bit aggressive there. Still learning on this whole passive - aggressive - assertive = normal talking to people thing. With me atm you either get or :mad:

    Nice idea, but I think it only works, like Steffi said, for milder cases.

    (Original post by Burnout (Wikipedia))
    A compulsion to prove oneself
    Working harder
    Neglecting one's own needs
    Displacement of conflicts (the person does not realize the root cause of the distress)
    Revision of values (friends or hobbies are completely dismissed)
    Denial of emerging problems (cynicism and aggression become apparent)
    Withdrawal (reducing social contacts to a minimum, becoming walled off; alcohol or other substance abuse may occur)
    Behavioral changes become obvious to others
    Inner emptiness
    Depression
    Burnout syndrome (?)
    I have most of these symptoms but I'm still not sure about what's going on with me :dontknow: It was my Mum who was telling me to get some sleep or I might 'burn out' one day, so I decided to Google it out of curiosity. It isn't even a recognised disorder, and from what I have found (which isn't much) it's something that affects adults who work 9-5 day in, day out

    Sixth form hasn't gotten off to good start either--in fact, it hasn't even gotten off to a decent start. I've come home with about three pieces of homework everyday for the past week and I haven't done any of it... I didn't do anything in my lessons today, just sat there feeling kinda empty. Completely disinterested in the whole idea of A levels/studying/friendships... I feel so far away everyone and everything it's unreal... Last week I felt really excited by everything but now my mood has hit the flat line again I don't really care...

    I feel indifferent about school--I have one friend :rolleyes: everyone else is either an acquaintance or a teacher. Again, I'm completely disinterested in socialising with others. My friend probably thinks I'm just 'being moody' again but truth is I can't be bothered feigning happiness around her.

    I've drifted away from one of my other really close friends. She moved school and now we don't speak (though she still speaks to everyone else bar me). All my fault of course, so now I feel bad about that and what makes me feel worse is the fact that I doubt she cares... She left with straight A*s, went to a really, really good school and has made loads of new friends tbh.

    I just deleted my Facebook as well :o:

    I'll regret that one in the morning.

    Burning out in that sense is used to tell someone who is trying to do too much etc.. to get some rest before they get themselves down when they run out of energy I think.

    :dontknow: I haven't found much on it, just that it's linked to stress. You could be right about it not being an actual 'thing' (?) tbh, I get pretty sceptical of things the NHS hasn't listed under their Health A-Z

    I have never heard of such a disorder either.. but I guess if its on the NHS website.. maybe ask your mum exactly what she meant? The only wording using it I have ever heard is what I said earlier.

    Maybe 'symptoms' wasn't the right word to use then, I'm starting to think she meant things that could build up and lead to exhaustion or something. It isn't on the NHS website either so it could be just a consequence of when things build up :o:

    It's always annoying when appointments are changed or jiggled up. Does she at least have the decency to give plenty of advance notice?

    How many times have they been pushed back now?

    ---

    Wondering what to do about my UCAS :erm:. I know you are suppost to keep your PS nice and cheery and leave it to your reference to go through all the crap stuff but saying I am going to use this year to resit and travel a bit.. it seems like I am missing out half the story unless I actually explain why I have epically ****** up.. Although I guess thats your references job.

    I have to email my old personal tutor and she said she would do my reference.. should I ask her if she can mention it? I did talk to her when I was there about my depression and so she will know I am not lying.. but legally do they need a doctors note or anything? Will have to go my GP if thats the case..

    I wouldn't mention it. You don't have to be all American and WOW and OMG and amazingggg but at the end of the day, the admissions tutor will be looking for any reason to move you from the 'read further' pile to the 'reject' pile.

    I would say that you've taken a gap year to enrich yourself, to make sure that you are in the best place to achieve at university, and that you feel that it's a massive help rather than a hinderance. Then go on and talk about the awesome OMG American things you're going to do. The PS helpers on here maybe be able to advise you better though.

    Man I'm going to be ****** at uni, reading/concentration is still **** tried to read over posts in here earlier just kind of got lost. I'm kind of ok at writing but reading anything is ergh. Just been grading multiple choice papers (don't ask), between looking at the person's answer then the answer sheet I forget the original so it's taking forever and making my head hurt.....lectures and seminars are going to be so much fun.

    Someone from school messaged me 13 days ago on facebook and in all that time I still haven't managed to formulate any kind of response. Pathetic.


    Hope you guys are ok.

    Fire mentioned abilify? concentration on that and sleepiness was nothing compared to the quetiapine from what I remember.

    Yeah, she gives at least a week's notice.

    Twice now. Was supposed to have it last week, then this week, now it's like next week. Oh well, I suppose I should be grateful that I'm at least getting something. It is free counselling after all.
