Good luck, Mark. I really hope that it goes well for you.

FlyingNy 05-05-2011 11:27 PM

Hello all :)

Erm...Charlie and I have returned for a few moments to tell you something.

Billy! 05-05-2011 11:27 PM

Lol, this feels strange, I don't really know how to say it. :/

FlyingNy 05-05-2011 11:31 PM

Well, Charlie doesn't know what to say. As you read.

I could give you all the really long version, or just in a nutshell, after 4 long months of careful pulling and wooing skills from Charlie, she's finally persuaded me to run with the wild horses. I'm terrified but working with it. Basically, we're a couple :)

Billy! 05-05-2011 11:34 PM

Nice way of putting it Lia :)
What she said ^^
So yeah, we just thought we'd come in and let you all know, as the ward helped us so much, and we met in here. :)

PoisonedApple 06-05-2011 12:13 AM

FlyingNy 06-05-2011 12:18 AM

PoisonedApple 06-05-2011 12:28 AM

*Hugs Crimson*
Taa :)
Feel free to rant if you need to. :)

FlyingNy 06-05-2011 12:48 AM

What Charlie said, it's fine if you want to rant, don't mind raining on our parade, we just came here to tell you all the news :) We shouldn't even still be here...

Cazki 06-05-2011 12:54 AM

*Hugs Laura, Ian and Crimson*

Thanks Laura and Ian :) How are you both?

I should really leave...I left here and this isn't healthy, but I only realised now how much I've really missed being here.

PoisonedApple 06-05-2011 01:00 AM

That's okay Lia. We missed you too :)

FlyingNy 06-05-2011 01:02 AM

I should sleep now. Night night guys. I love and miss you. I'll visit again someday.

Sefka 06-05-2011 01:56 AM

Well done Lia and Charlie xx

I'm so so so so sorry, I don't want to hijack... but it's late, I'm desperate and I've run out of distractions :crying:

Antebellum 06-05-2011 02:37 AM

Im here and listening Sarah *hugs*

Antebellum 06-05-2011 02:40 AM

If you have facebook and want to talk on facebook chat you can add me to facebook. The link to my facebook is in my profile hun.

xx

Sefka 06-05-2011 02:44 AM

Thanks. I'm really sorry. I don't even know why I'm trying not to do this.

Had a look at your facebook. I know it's weird, but I just think if I share my facebook here, people will see who I really am and will hate me.

I'm so messed up this evening.

Sorry again.

Antebellum 06-05-2011 02:46 AM

Dont be sorry! Do you mean you dont know why your trying not to si?

Sefka 06-05-2011 02:52 AM

Yes. I mean - I know if I do it, I'll immediately feel better. And I know if I don't, I'll eventually get off to sleep and wake up tomorrow feeling worse and more likely to do it tomorrow.

Sorry, I don't want to be all self-pitying and pathetic. I'm horrible.

Antebellum 06-05-2011 02:59 AM

your not self pitying, pathetic or horrible.

The battle to stop self harming is hard. But eventually you will feel good for not doing it. Try to think about something else.

Have you ever played http://www.seenandshared.com/circle-the-cat.htm ???

I find it distracting.

Sefka 06-05-2011 03:05 AM

Thanks :)

I've caught the cat a few times. I think I'm going to try and get some sleep. Thanks so much for talking with me - means a lot xx

Antebellum 06-05-2011 03:07 AM

I love catching the cat!

I hope you can sleep, it always makes me feel better!

I'm always around if you want to talk, :-) I think I'm going to go to bed too, I've been mindlessly eating sweets and Its just dawned on me I've eaten way too many and feel quite sick 0.o

Sefka 06-05-2011 03:11 AM

Ah, thanks again.

Feel better tomorrow xx

It's Early o'clock here , Want to be awake for my psych appointment.

SoMuchMore 06-05-2011 07:39 AM

Hi Mark.

Its 12:39am here... just got home from work. Hope you appt. goes okay today.

Doikers 06-05-2011 09:12 AM

Thankyou Laura , Sleep Well *Hugs*

Doikers 06-05-2011 12:19 PM

Well, The Dr increased my Anti-depressants when I really wanted to be put on different ones , But he is going to refer me back to my old Psychologist for my Self Injury .

Thankyou everyone for your support :) *Group Hugs*

one_step_closer 06-05-2011 12:37 PM

I'm glad your appointment went reasonably well, Mark. Sometimes an increase in medication is better than starting a new medication because you should have less side effects. If you really want to try a different antidepressant is there someone you can talk to about it?

I overdosed this morning at 2am. I couldn't hold back. I took a huge amount of pills to I had to go to the hospital. The doctor was really horrible to me and belittled everything that I said. After waiting for hours to see the doctor she got people to take my blood pressure, do an ECG, and take blood. When the blood came back it was fine so I was told to go home. I was and still am really ill. I could hardly walk and I fell in the hospital. They all thought that I was faking it. I hurt my knees and now walking is even more difficult. Along with that the medication is making my limbs move of their own accord so I keep shaking and throwing my kegs and arms about the place. I look like an idiot.

I'm upset that overdosing doesn't help any more. I just want to feel some happpiness for a change. Sorry for the huge rant.

Doikers 06-05-2011 03:07 PM

*Hugs Lindsay* I'm sorry the hospital staff were such ignorant , uncaring people , Please try and stay safe , If you took them at 2am you must be tired , could you try and sleep it off?

shadowedsoul 06-05-2011 03:31 PM

cuddles all, sorry or not being about things are still with me.
nice one charlie and lia.

Doikers 06-05-2011 04:07 PM

frenchhorn 06-05-2011 04:15 PM

*hugs all*

That sounds horrible Lindsay, I'm sorry the staff were so uncaring, I've had that a few times.

*hugs Charlie and Lia and congratulations* :)

*hugs everyone* sorry thats all the individuals I can manage, I have a GP appt in 25 mins and I'm anxious about it, cos I plan on telling her about the urges I get to do dangerous things, and the main one is to do with driving :(

Doikers 06-05-2011 04:28 PM

*Hugs Oliver*

dontwantyoutoknow 06-05-2011 05:38 PM

Lindsay - *hugs* You have EVERY right to as much care as any one else. They seriously have to pay you the same attention as the accidents etc. Just because you did something yourself, doesn't de-value your need for care. In fact, they should give you more care, because they should look after the inside part too. I can't believe they sent you away without checking your kidneys, or having you speak to a mental health professional. You are perfectly within your right to complain officially about that. And I also want to say, I'M SO VERY PROUD that you went to the hospital for help!!!! Ok, so they were rubbish, but you WENT. That is an awesome thing, and it makes you SO strong!!

Mark - *hugs* I hope you're feeling better now that the appointment is out the way. I love that feeling; when it's done, it's over...

Oliver - how did it go? *hugs*

Lia and Charlie - I don't know you, as I'm quite new here, but congratulations! Also, there's no reason why you can't come to chat here!

Sarah - how are you now? Make distraction t-rolls!

Rhi - I'm from Cardiff. You? And I have Facebook on my profile too.

one_step_closer 06-05-2011 05:47 PM

Thank you everyone. I'm still feeling unwell and I have been advised to see a doctor so I have an appointment at 5.30. They'll probably just tell me to go to bed or something.

I hope your appointment went well, Oliver.

frenchhorn 06-05-2011 05:49 PM

*hugs Mark and MJ* how are you both.

*hugs Lindsay* I hope the appt goes ok with the dr, and i agree with MJ well done for going to hospital to get checked, I know how hard that can be.

The appt went ok, I told her about the urges I have to shut my eyes while driving, and she said I shouldnt drive until I'm more emotionally stable, which is I guess what I was expecting to here. She is also going to do a letter for me for DSA, which is good, it was weird cos she said she would put in it severe depression and severe anxiety and no one has every really talked about the anxiety with me, so it was weird hearing it from her, she said she wouldn't go into too much detail which is good, but she didn't say she would mention BPD, but I guess I can mention that to them and I can get the crisis team to write a letter if need be for that. sorry rambling now

*hugs all*

one_step_closer 06-05-2011 05:56 PM

I'm glad your appointment went ok, Oliver. *huge hugs*

frenchhorn 06-05-2011 06:02 PM

thanks Lindsay *hugs back*

one_step_closer 06-05-2011 06:06 PM

What are you going to be getting up to tonight?

(I'm so confused about what time it is. I think it's because I had no sleep last night because I was awake for ages and then I overdosed at 2am and was in hospital until about 7.30am and then I just carried on with the day but it feels like it should be later than it is. I keep looking at the clock and thinking that it's wrong.)

Sefka 06-05-2011 06:06 PM

Good evening and hugs all round.

Sounds like a lot of people have got through difficult appointments today - well done all of you.

I ended up cutting last night which was stupid, but I feel a bit calmer now, just a bit sore and massively tired. Sigh... life goes on. TFI Friday!

dontwantyoutoknow 06-05-2011 06:10 PM

God, you guys are all so brave!! Y'know, actually going to appts.

I fail. Meh.

But y'know what? I'm getting my old counsellor back soon! She's phoning Monday (missed her today by about a second, literally!!); to get details and stuff; then she's away for three weeks; then she's not got space so I'll have to wait a bit. BUT that works better for me, because I have time to get used to the idea that I have an appt then. The one I failed at, I only got given like 24 hours before and I guess I just need to adjust to the "I HAVE an appt. I'm GOING to the appt" for a week or so, beforehand.

Doikers 06-05-2011 06:27 PM

*HUGE Hugs for Lindsay (Good Luck) , Oliver, Rhi , Sefka, MJ*

Chilling out now...., Felicia and I CAN meet up in the summer , SO Excited!

Antebellum 06-05-2011 07:55 PM

*hugs everyone*

My mums babysitting tonight for my brother so my 1yr old niece and 13yr old nephew are here... My nephew could drive anyone insane. He is a complete and utter little ****!

He just walked in and went "Oh pink hair, thats weird, like you I guess" GRRRRR I'm going to f'ing strangle him by tomorrow morning!!!!!!

*takes a deep breath*

frenchhorn 06-05-2011 10:08 PM

*hugs Mark* thats really cool that you can meet up in the summer :)

*hugs Lindsay* I always feel like I have no idea what time it is when i come out of hospital after an OD, its always so confusing. I hope you can get a good nights sleep tonight.

*hugs Rhi* I'm sorry your nephew is annoying you so much, can you try to stay out of his way?

*hugs MJ* I hope the counselling works out and you don't have to wait too long for it. I used to suck at appts, but over the years I have got used to it, but it took me 4/5 years before i went to my GP about my mental health stuff.

*hugs Sefka* I'm sorry you cut, please look after the wound and I hope you get some sleep.

I'm really worn out, so I'm giving the gym a miss for tonight, which I feel bad about, but just so knackered after an hour and a half practice.

dontwantyoutoknow 06-05-2011 10:09 PM

Oliver and Rhi, I added you on Facebook. *hugs*

*hugs Sarah*

symbol5405 06-05-2011 10:13 PM

Antebellum 06-05-2011 10:14 PM
