Hi Katie, would it help to talk about what's making you scared?

Hi Lana. How have you been?

Katie, I hope you are feeling less scared now. Here if you need to talk.

Jill, How are you doing now? I hope speaking to your lecturer has helped somewhat. I get the feeling disappointed thing but sadly sometimes thats how mental health works. Why are you scared to ask your friends to help? You know you can always post here and ask for help. I know it isn't the same but we're here and I care.

How is everyone else doing tonight?

Sending safe hugs your way Katie. I know it isn't always helpful but can you do some self care and looking after you. Its ok for you not knowing how to make it ok right now (Although I realise how much it f'ing sucks) Maybe rest and relaxation might help fuel you and come up with a plan. Do you want to talk about what is going on?

Heyyy, how are you?

Sorry I've not been around so much, have been really stressed and anxious. I'm okay though!

I'm glad you're doing alright, Leigh. What have you been up to?


I'm sorry the anxiety is so bad, Hannah. It really is horrible. I saw that you've booked a GP appointment. Have you kept it? Could your CC phone your GP and ask them? She might be able to make them understand that the present is particularly bad for you and that you need something just to take the edge off until things settle again.



I got my uni assignment back today. Got 85%. :)

Oh that doesn't sound very nice. *squish* Fingers crossed you'll sleep soon and will feel better come morning after some rest. What have you been up to today?


I'm alright. Also in bed. Got a uni thing all day tomorrow, so need to sleep, but I've not been great at that recently!

Leigh I hope you're asleep by now and that you wake up feeling better <3

I hope you manage to sleep Ducky and that your uni thing goes well! Well done on your first assignment, that's amazing! Do you know what's been making sleep difficult lately?

I haven't cancelled the appointment yet but I might. I could maybe ask my CC to call, I don't know, but I doubt it would help. She called last time (about a year ago, before she was my CC and she was just some random CPN they sent round!) and it didn't make any difference they still said no even though I wasn't very well at the time. And the GP was horrible. I don't know. I'll see how I feel by Monday I guess. I'm a bit drunk lol, been out for a few drinks with a friend and it's the best I've felt all week. Probably not a sustainable solution though! I'm going to see a friend for the weekend and I'm looking forward to it but also anxious and also I have to be up stupidly early!!

*squish* Can you remember if it's the same doctor or someone different who you've got the appointment with on Monday? I can understand you maybe wanting to cancel it given the experience you had last time. Is there another doctor at the CMHT that could write you up for something? I know they've done that for me before when I've needed something reasonably urgently but my psych hasn't been around.


Did you have a nice time with your friend? I'm glad you're feeling better, but you're right - not a sustainable solution! Do you know what's making you feel anxious about going to see your friend for the weekend? Do you think that once you've wound down a bit you'll be able to sleep?


Thank you. :) I've no idea, really. I've been feeling a bit unsettled about work. I think that's maybe it. Also I was worried about getting the results of my assignment because I'd convinced myself I'd failed. :P

*squish* I hope that now you have the results it takes at least some of the weight off your mind! You did so well, you're amazing! I hope you sleep okay tonight. Do you think you'll be able to try for some sleep soon?

Thanks lovely. It's a different doctor but also one I haven't met before which is nerve wracking. I will maybe speak to my CC when i see her next week if I don't manage to go or it doesn't go well. I feel like I'm being horribly unreasonable asking for anything. I did have a nice time, yes :) I think I'm anxious because it's an early start and lots of travelling, which wouldn't usually be an issue but is when I'm this anxious, and although it will be lovely to see her it's also difficult putting onmy happy face all the time and then I'll get back late-ish on Sunday and have work early on Monday. And I really, really don't want to go to work.

Yeah, I can see why that would be nerve wracking. You're not being unreasonable at all - you're really anxious and have been for some time, which is horrible and not sustainable and if you can get something to take the edge off, then you should be given access to it. This won't last forever and there are things that can be done to alleviate things before things get easier again.


I get that. Does your friend know about how you've been feeling recently? Travelling and early starts can be anxiety provoking. Is there anything that helps when travelling when you're anxious? I listen to music a lot, which I find helpful. Do you have an app on your phone that tells you which platform you need etc?


Work sounds so, so difficult at the moment. I'm sorry it's like that. It shouldn't be.


Thank you. <3 I'm pleased with the result. I'd have been happy with the 40% or whatever I needed to pass.

I'm glad you're pleased, you really should be! I hope you're doing something to celebrate / reward yourself! How are you doing today?

My friend doesn't know, I'm not really very good at talking to people about things! Travelling is going okay so far, less than an hour to go! I forgot my headphones, which is very sad. Hopefully I'll just have a nice couple of days before I go back to work.

I'm glad that travelling is going OK so far. Hooray for less than an hour to go! Have you had many changes? Oh, forgetting your headphones is sad. :( Could you buy some cheap ones when you're away, so you have some for the way back? I do not go out of the flat without mine!


I'm OK thanks. Bit tired. Also travelling, but only for half an hour on a stright through train to the city. Got a day school with uni. It's on chemistry! I'm not sure what to do to celebrate/reward myself!

How is your day school going? I hope it's interesting and you're enjoying it! Umm I don't know, treat yourself to a nice meal or something?

I had two changes, it was okay, I got here! It's lovely to see my friend, she's at a training thing for a couple of hours so I am killing time in a random town. I was going to go for a walk but it's snowing so I'm just sitting awkwardly in wetherspoons lol. That's a good idea, I think I will try and get some headphones. They'd be useful for tonight if I'm anxious or can't sleep as well.
