Do you only have to go to pick up your prescription medication then? You could go straight to the till, get the meds and then go back out without looking around?

I can relate to wanting to stay in bed all the time. Hopefully the stuff you have to do won't be too tiring.

Ah, that's not the best, I hope he gives you an actual update soon.

It's not my usual pharmacy
The one that I get my meds from started to get suspicious about me purchasing this medication (they know me very well) so I have to go to a different one.
I now don't have to go there until Thursday (for a diabetes screening) so yeah

The things I have to do are pretty easy and non stressful so hopefully I'll be ok
And I'll get to have a lie in tomorrow which I haven't been able to do in a while

Thanks x



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

Do you know if your course has a disability worker or similar? I am sure they need to give you some extra support due to your illness.

Do you think having to travel to college is playing into struggling to attend at times? My experience is that that is exhausting and stressful and can make it a lot harder. Maybe that is something you can bring up with them, and while there isn't really a way around it they still need to understand how much time and effort you are putting into doing this course.

How are you?

Im not sure.
I'll ask when I'm next in

I think it does play into it
My meds make me so tired so it's hard to get up and go

Im not doing too well really
Although I managed to not go into that pharmacy today
Was going to call CC but phones are hard
I'm sure I'll be fine

Do you have the option to text her?

I think you are doing really well and that you are being brave.

Have you planned anything relaxing today?
A video game, a movie you like or anything else that comes to your mind?

I do have her mobile number but I feel like I'd be pestering her

Thank you so much
That means a lot

I've cleaned the house because it was bordering on a health hazard and I bought some flowers and a scented candle as kind of a self care thing.
I'm watching a tv series that I've seen before so I enjoy it but don't have to concentrate too hard

I think I'm going to have to quit college
The thought of it brings me such intense anxiety
Im just not clever enough for it and I can't cope
I feel like a complete failure
This was the only thing I've ever wanted to do and I just can't
This fucking illness has taken so much from me
I'll never be able to do what I've dreamed of doing

Hi Becky,
You're not dumb, and I believe you can do college. However, you might need a term or two off if it's making you anxious. Another poster talked about connecting with your college's disability service. They may be able to create a longer-term plan for you as to how you will complete college at a slower pace and with accommodations. (I had a college disability service help me with exams while I was going through ECT, and I got through them - they were really helpful!) I believe in you - don't give up yet!



I changed my password everywhere to "incorrect". That way, when I forget it, it always reminds me, "Your password is incorrect."

And probably contact my CC at some point

I also believe in you!

Illness doesn't mean you can't do it at all... It just means you might not be able to do it the way everyone else does. There's always a way.

Although could be being paranoid

Hey Beckie, I think there are ways of making it work. It may take a while (and believe me I know about taking a while with academic stuff) but it is ok and it can be done and work and you can make it. You are so smart, it comes across all the time, and college know that and know that you are capable of doing good work. They want to support you in that - it is literally their jobs to help people learn. I guarantee they would rather support you than deal with students who aren't invested in what they're offering.

I agree that it will be worth contacting disability services; they will have an idea of what they can offer you. Have a think about what you think would help - study skills? A mentor? Different/additional resources? A different timetable/timescale to work to? Briefing someone you trust on early warning signs so you can start to identify when things slide and get some extra support then? Having some templates for emails you can send when you're struggling or if you need a bit of help? If you go in with practical ideas of how to address things you will make it much much easier for them to work with you to accommodate those.

I've spent many years fighting my way through academic stuff, and have a whole lot of ideas about how to manage and deal with it, so feel free to ask here or pm me any time.





It's a long way down
On this rollercoaster.

Hey, so uh. I don't know if you were able to get to the pharmacy or not.

I'm not positive of how getting prescriptions filled works there, but you could only take like, your ID and enough money for transportation there and for the prescription and nothing else? No debit/credit card, etc.? That way when you go there is no possible way for you to buy anything else? Or even phone and ask if you could pay in advance over the phone with a card?



You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

The pills I buy are not part of my prescription meds.
I have weird reasons that I'll only OD on one specific medication. Its a bit stupid really.

Oh, sorry. I think I misunderstood then. I thought you needed to go to get something else and were concerned about getting pills to overdose on as well. My bad!

Sorry, I did not mean to confuse you.

Do you have anything nice planned for the weekend?

I went in to college today and I have officially quit.
Tutors said they think it's the right decision.

I know they are right but I feel like a total failure.
I'm never going to be able to get to uni or do my dream course.
Have started applying for jobs but it's going to be difficult because criminal record and I have basically no work history.

Feeling rather down because of this.
I just suck at life
