I hope your day is going okay , Annie , Hun *Glomps*

Eir 29-07-2016 01:01 PM

Having a bad day. Had a mentor who makes me feel like am idiot as opposed to a student. Between a stuff up on my part, and her impatience and a dislike of a computer program, I'm left feeling like I'm going to fail my placement.
I've got 4 more weeks of this. So I feel really crappy. It's just one thing after another. I hate this. Why do I bother.
How's everyone else?

Kathryn_Anna 29-07-2016 02:29 PM

*safe hugs* Annie.

I'm doing kinda crappy. Broke a toe and so now my entire foot hurts. Appointments are overwhelming me. I'm ready for a break.

Doikers 29-07-2016 02:33 PM

*Safe Hugs Annie* I hope things improve .

*Safe Hugs Kathryn* I hate overwhelmingnous.

Anxiety and Depression . . . . Fab :/

Kathryn_Anna 29-07-2016 02:48 PM

Anyone journal? I've tried in the past and journal a little on here but I'm wondering if I should start. I meant to do it at night to help calm my mind but I never remember. I'm too exhausted.

Eir 29-07-2016 10:39 PM

I used to have a live journal. Don't know that it helped me much, but then, I used it irregularly, I'm not great with remembering to do daily things, like eating regularly, taking pills, applying moisturiser or journalling. Broken toe sucks, did they give you something for pain? Pain will make everything else worse, so I can't say I'm surprised that you're overwhelmed.
Mark, anxiety sucks. Im trying magnesium supplements cos none of the other natural stuffs safe in Bipolar or is incompatible with my meds.
Thanks for the hugs guys, my confidence is still fragile but i don't have to deal with that mentor today. So I'll cope.

Kathryn_Anna 30-07-2016 02:34 PM

You can do it Annie *hugs* having a bad mentor sucks, I've been there.

I haven't gotten the toe looked at. I know there's not much they could do. Taking headache medicine for pain and it helps some. I was overwhelmed before the broken toe but it's not surprising everything seems worse since the toe.

It's just been a rough few weeks. Lost a friend and it's shaken me up a bit. :(

Doikers 30-07-2016 05:01 PM

I don't have words atm.

*Hugs Annie*

*Hugs Kathryn*

*Leaves a Jar of Hugs out*

Kathryn_Anna 31-07-2016 06:31 AM

Just another one of those days. *sigh*

Thanks for the hug Mark. *Hugs*

How are we all Today?

Kathryn_Anna 01-08-2016 06:07 PM

Exhausted. How are you Mark?

Doikers 02-08-2016 11:54 AM

I hope you got some rest , Kathryn .

How are we all today?

I am getting more and more anxious . Also Fed Up of being dicked about by the CMHT.

Kahlia1981 03-08-2016 07:21 AM

Sorry to hear the CMHT is screwing you around Mark. I have issues with using the telephone as well and am constantly being given phone numbers to call. Man, I struggle just to call my husband on a good day, how do you expect me to call a stranger on a bad (or normal) day? *hugs*

I hope you managed to get some rest, or at least are not so exhausted, Kathryn.

Sorry to hear you are having a rough time with that mentor Annie. I hope you have had a few good days/shifts and are feeling a bit more confident. You are a student and you are a person, both mean that you can get confused or make mistakes - even someone well trained can make mistakes - and if the mentor cannot handle that they really shouldn't be a mentor. *safe hugs*

Things have been absolutely crazy here between medical appointments, university and attempting to have a social life. Trying to find a respite carer so my husband can take a break has been especially difficult. Meh...

Doikers 03-08-2016 10:17 AM

*Glomps Kahlia*

I don't have a social life since my friend moved away.

Eir 04-08-2016 09:47 AM

Kahlia, have you tried contacting the community care access point? I know phones are difficult, maybe your hubby or social worker(if you have one) can make contact for you?
Im all in a flapp about this grad position thing. I neeed either my passport or birth certificate, and my partner cannot find them. I've had a couple of days with a nice mentor, and I basically handled our allocation today. leaves me feeling more postive about the whole thing. it also probably helps that i am keeping up with my meds
*safe hugsfor all*

Kahlia1981 04-08-2016 11:07 AM

Thanks big brother. Since being in the wheelchair we just cannot get out as often so I usually only leave the house when I absolutely have to. *sigh* and *glomps*

We are also looking into the NDIS Annie. Hopefully we can get some more support. At this point - aside from the physiotherapist and OT - we only get domestic services. Once a week they have 45 minutes to clean the house, and luckily most of them have been good. As this is provided by Blue Care we pay for them, but at a reduced cost. Respite care and personal care aren't something that we can get from them unfortunately. I'm very glad the last couple of day at placement have been an improvement.

Good news: the OT rang today to say that my MASS/CAECTI application for the wheelchair has been approved meaning we wait for the letter and for it to be ordered, but we're one step closer.

Bad news: I've managed to fall out of my wheelchair three times and during a solo transfer and, as a result, I am in even more agony than usual. I didn't get any university work done today and have been feeling bad. Really, really want to harm myself but... I can't. *sigh*

*safe hugs for everyone*

Kahlia1981 04-08-2016 11:33 AM

Gees that's fast Mark. Good luck with it, and hubby and I are here for you if you need a chat. You've got this big brother. *hugs*

Doikers 04-08-2016 01:17 PM
