*squishes Laura* Glad that swimming went okay. I cut on my arms, which is probably not the wisest thing to do as my arms are covered in very visible scars... and I have an internship this summer to do. :-X I'll probably be working with psychiatrically disturbed patients and I'm not sure what the staff will think about having an intern who is also psychiatrically disturbed. Urf.

It's understandable, as Helen said, to be nervous about a new semester. God knows I am... I am not ready at all... it doesn't feel like it's actually going to start, you know? I'm sure once I get started on it, it won't be bad, but the starting is always the worst part. >_< I hope you enjoy your classes - and I hope that I do too!! Last semester was an epic fail in terms of enjoyment. Yuck. I hated my courses so much.

*cuddles Helen* We care here about what's going on in your head & life, love. Please remember that. You can always PM me about stuff... I am a good listener & can be a good support, and once in awhile can come up with some good advice. Heh.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend's hip... that had to hurt like hell.

What's upsetting you? *holds you gently*

Just did part of my workout & it was pretty fantabulous. Just the arms and some squats, but it got me warm & my heart pumping, which was what I was aiming for. Woohoo. Only about 20 minutes of exercise, but it is better than nothing & pretty good for someone who's just been ill for almost a week. :)

I'm really upset about that friend still... :(

*hugs april* you could always just wear longer sleeves to your internship. If ur psych problems dont affect ur work i dont see why they would have a problem. And i hope that the new semester is better for u! I agree though, starting is the worst. In fact, i think the first day of classes is painful, but after that it usually gets better. Glad your workout went good.

*cuddles helen* i agree with what april said, we care here. You can always talk to us.

*hugs Laura* Thing is, I don't know if my psych problems will get in the way of work... I hope not, but I am scared that I will get triggered, or the patients/clients will try & push my buttons to make me upset, or I'll go psychotic or suicidal and have to be hospitalized myself. :( I really don't know. It's scary. Sometimes I wish I had been in a different major but I love psychology so much I wouldn't switch for the world. :) It's so fascinating and plus, I know I will have the chance to change people's worlds. THAT will be uber awesome... if only I can get myself stable enough to help other people first. :-X

How's your day been? :)

A couple of nights ago I had two of my friends around. We shall call them H & K. Orginally it was just going to be me & H as we had a few things planned for the day and the evening. We ended up not going to the cinema, but went ahead with the takeaway/alcohol bit. She invites K, which I was half happy/half not happy about. Selfishly wanted her to myself.

They both didn't even arrive and over 30 minutes later, I met them at the chinese place, which was fine, apart from the pouring rain and their whinging about getting a ****ing taxi when they only had like 10 more minutes to walk. Spent most of the evening making comments, more H than K, as she knows more. That upset me. Less than two hours later, they've gone!!!

Since then, apart from the rest of that evening, both are pretty much ignoring me. I should be seeing H on Wednesday and now I'm scared I'll end up rowing with her. I've known her since we were 11 and started at same school :( Now nearly 20!! We've only ever had one row and that was just epic tiredenss and emotions running really highly.

I'm being pathetic. Feels like nobody gives a **** somtimes. It's fine. Not like I'm really strugglign at the moment.

Yeah, it probably did hurt her, but when she popped it out, she wasn't exactly concious..

risenfromperdition 18-01-2010 08:35 PM

wow thats a lot of prereq's for ab psych laura o.O here you just need intro i think haha. what year are you?

SoMuchMore 18-01-2010 09:27 PM

*hugs april* yeah, i understand why u are afraid. I had a research assistant position last semester and we did interviews with psychiatric patients and i was always scared i would get triggered, or i would somehow trigger something in them. I just tried to keep covered and if i was having a bad day, i just pretended i was fine (i know thats prolly bad advice.. but idk what else ur supposed to do in the work place...) It is hard though.

*hugs helen* im sorry about the situation with your friends. Its understandable that you are upset about it. I hope u guys dont wind up arguing or anything. If u want to talk to her about it, maybe just try to calmly explain why u are upset. Maybe it'll be a better convo then u think it might be... u never know right?

Horseridinbbe - Im a junior. Only 1 1/2 semesters left until the real world! ahh! :-P
What year r u?

risenfromperdition 18-01-2010 09:40 PM

junior too... scary hmm? lol.


Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 09:52 PM

*huggles Helen* I'm sorry to hear about the issues with your friends. That must be really tough. Are they close friends? Also, as Laura said, maybe explain why you are upset to H... it may not be taken as poorly as you think it will. Try to be calm & reasonable - I know that you can, as you're not a flighty person. It will be hard but I think you can do it. And one question you don't have to answer if you don't want to - comments about what? (I may be being dense, & if I am, I'm sorry :-X)

*hugs Laura* Yeah, I guess that advice does work for the workplace. I don't know really what else you are supposed to do. I guess if you really can't handle whatever is happening, talk to your boss - if s/he is understanding. Otherwise, I guess just suck it up? I really don't know. I should probably talk to someone who knows about this... like my advisor or a prof or something. Hmmm. And I do agree with Heather (right?) that that is an awful lot of prereqs for abnormal psych!! :)

I'm a senior... 6th year senior to be exact... ugh. But this is my last term taking classes, then - as I said - my internship this summer, then I'll graduate in December. Woohoo!! April will enter the real world sometime soon... :) Heh. Not sure I'm ready for it, or if it's ready for me... guess we'll see.

Feel like ****. But what's new... :-X

risenfromperdition 18-01-2010 09:57 PM

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 10:11 PM

*hugs everyone*

*cuddles everyone then disappears into a dark corner to attempt to cry*

risenfromperdition 18-01-2010 10:15 PM

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 10:16 PM

*holds Kahlia gently* What's up, sweetie? We're here to listen & help when/where we can... feel free to talk about what's going on.

~*Rainbow*~ 18-01-2010 10:43 PM

Hey guys sosrry i havent been around for a while been busy trying to get my life back after i got attacked in Inverness!

Just thought i would check in with everyone to see how you are all doing

*hugs to all *

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 11:06 PM

Hiya Rainbow. *hugs back* How you doing? Attacked in Inverness? sounds like you've got a story, there. Hehe.

I just ate supper and now I want to purge... damn bulimic urges... hate feeling full. And it was a healthy supper too. :(

*hides in dark corner with her stuffed ape and tries to go to sleep*

risenfromperdition 19-01-2010 12:41 AM

*cuddles april*
know how you feel

have a sheep with a shirt on

MammaMia 19-01-2010 02:00 AM

*cuddles everyone*

I will think about talkijng to H, might be over it by tomorrow (as it's now Tuesday here lol).

What's new? I feel like **** and binged. Ugh fat whore that I am shouldn't have.

Scarletdreamer 19-01-2010 11:24 AM

*cuddles everyone*

Heather, I'm sorry that you know how I feel. :( I kind of guessed that you would by your comment on supper... one sort or another of understanding, anyway. *hugs*

Helen, how you doing this morning? I'm sorry that you binged... but you're hardly a "fat whore" that you posit you are. *gentle hugs* I understand the feeling though... I mini-binged yesterday morning and hated myself for it, but ate okay the rest of the day, so did okay after all, especially with the workout. I miss Vince's coaching though. :(

Classes start today and I am not ready!!!! Not ready at all... I am scared. Thankfully today I only have 2 classes - Health Psych & Advanced Counseling Techniques - but tomorrow is going to be hell. I will be going from 12:30-9pm with only 2 mini-breaks in there of about 30 minutes each. And I totally forgot my tutoring hours this term so I had to call my supervisor yesterday... but forgot that it was a holiday, so she wasn't in her office. Stupid me!! :(

Oh well. I guess I'll survive, heh. I'm just really worried about this semester...

Kahlia1981 19-01-2010 11:56 AM

*hugs everyone*

I told my housemate how I've been doing and he basically said that he expected as much. We went up to the hospital and they sent us home again saying that the crisis team will follow up. I'll believe that when I see it. *sigh* Make it all go away now please ...

*disappears back into a dark corner to cry*

Scarletdreamer 19-01-2010 12:08 PM

Aw Kahlia... *gentle cuddles* I'm sorry that you're in such a bad place right now. Wish I could do something to make it better. Why didn't the hospital do something then & there, instead of saying the crisis team would follow it up? I totally don't understand that kind of healthcare system, heh. In the States it's totally different. If you go to the ER and say that you're suicidal and are actively planning to die, you're admitted immediately to a ward. At least, that's been my experience all four times. :-X

*more hugs for Kahlia*
