    I am not sure if I am depressed. My family told me that I have gone quiet and that I need to see a counsellor. They think I have lots of things bottled up and I need to speak to someone about it. Sometimes I feel like I have nothing to live for then I look on the bright side. I just don't know anymore. Days keep going by and there's nothing I can do.

    It's my birthday tomorrow (the 14th) and I don't feel like celebrating. Last year, my sister had bought an expensive cake and baked one herself. She then blindfolded me and fed me a piece of each. The cake she had made with her owns hands was so much better

    This year, no homemade cake and no sister. The greatest gift in the world would be a simple hug from her. :cry: People with siblings don't realise how lucky they are... :sad:

    I'm going to deactivate Facebook so I don't have to read through birthday wishes.
    :hugs: I know it's hard mate but keep it together, keep going.

    Counselling sucks. I just sit there and nod and don't know what to say and leave feeling like I want to cry and want a hug from my Mum. I feel like a 5 year old. :o:

    Reading the other post...I feel the same about counselling now. Also at uni we get 6 sessions and then told to get lost...Idon't even see the point in bothering to tell the counsellor anything because of that...feel like I need it more long-term to help, don't really know what to do!

    Alsojust been put on even more meds: now have Amitriptyline as well as citalopram, propranolol and co-codamol for anyone interested. Having a blood test tomo,don't knowwhat for though...can the nurse tell me?

    Is it even normal to be on so much? I hate taking simple paracetamol normally...just feel a bit overwhelmed by everything I suppose

    Amitriptyline as well as citalopram? :confused: And yeah, taking loads of drugs is pretty normal for me, doesn't make it good though. Blood test could be for anything it'll probably say on that bit of paper no?





    Ok guys, got no one else to ask so excuse the retardedness.....right I got talking with someone today ( :eek: :eek: yes, yes I know) between classes, it was going cool which was great, but then the class started and so we shut up. After class she just got up and ran off as quick as possible without a see you or anything. I'm wondering maybe I did something wrong? The last thing we spoke about was accommodation on campus, she was in A so I was like yeah it's nice, but damn expensive. Faux pas?

    We get 6 sessions standard, then evaluated to see whether or not we want/need more. Yours will probably be the same.

    She asked today whether or not I'd tell her if I felt suicidal again... I couldn't answer that, as in all honesty, I've kinda already decided that no-one will be told.

    No, that sounds pretty normal to me! Well done She may have had someone to meet after class, somewhere to go, I just up and left my lecture without even saying bye to my flatmate today as I had counselling and I was late. I sometimes forget to say good bye especially if I haven't said anything to that person in a while. So no, no faux pas :yy:

    Alright, cool, thanks, was just checking



    And you know, you should try to tell them if you're feeling suicidal. Yeah, they might overreact, but they might equally just talk things through with you and try to help your feelings. :console:

    Yeah I know but the Amitriptylines for my headaches not anything depression related...I just hate being all drugged up! I didn't get any slip etc just told to come in tomo for the nurse to do a blood test...meh! If my headaches don't go in a couple of weeks then i'll be referred to neurology...Hopefully I won't have more probs to deal with!

    Oh ok thank you...I was just under the impression we don't get any more after 6...saying that I don't know if im being thrown out of uni yet...If I am then this doesn't matter I guess

    I hope you start feeling better soon

    :console: You get used to it. I still feel very uncomfortable talking to my cpn about my feelings and stuff, but I'm a lot better about it than when I first started.

    They'd turf me to the CAMHS, talk to my personal tutor and probably try to stop me. I'm not suicidal, but I know that if I was again, I would want to do it properly... :dontknow:

    I feel so sick. Just shoved a chinese and an entire packet of Oreos down my throat. So much for healthy eating. I'm already noticing that I've put weight on, it's all going down hill. I should just stop eating :sad:

    Fair enough, I personally find talking to a lot of other depressed people makes me feel even more suicidal. It just makes me think, life really is **** and there's so many unhappy people in this world.

    I'll probably be the first then, meh.
