I've just got back from hospital after I OD'd yesterday. I had a mixed experience, but for once no body treated me badly because I'm trans, in fact the 2 paramedics and one nurse were so lovely about it.
there was one slightly dodgy moment when a Dr mentioned the R and G words (religion and god) we got into a 10 minute argument, which was rather random in the middle of A and E.
the psych I saw this morning was **** though and just told me to think positively and that it was my fault I was depressed, so I just nodded and agreed with him so he would send me home.
I think I'd have rather liked to see that argument. As for the psych though, that is just awful! I'm glad that everyone seemed to be so lovely about you being trans :)



*hugs Crimson* I hope you enjoy the wedding and you look very pretty in your pic.

*Hugs Crimson* You look really pretty hun :)

Crimson - you look great!

*hugs Crimson* you look lovely in that pic, enjoy the wedding.

Thanks Guys!

Glad your internet is back, Laura!

I agree with Oliver, Mara... I find the language far less appalling than the treatment of that nurse.

*cuddles the worry out of Mark*

*hugs everyone*
*waves at Angel*
*passes out some wedding cake* It's white cake with raspberry cream between the layers and a white chocolate 'frosting'... It's delicious.

The wedding was stressful and the whole day went entirely as far from planned as could be. But David looked nice and the kids were adorable. I might post pics later if I remember (left the cord for my camera at home).

How is everyone doing now? (last post was an hour ago...)

frenchhorn 15-07-2011 06:29 PM

*hugs Crimson* I'm sorry the wedding didn't go quite to plan.

I'm still feeling really physically ill, feel really sick and dazed. going to try sleep it off soon.

*hugs Lindsay* how are you?

one_step_closer 15-07-2011 07:14 PM

I'm not too bad. Fighting off urges to self harm but I think I can cope. How are you feeling now, Oliver?

PoisonedApple 15-07-2011 07:26 PM

*hugs Oliver* It's okay. C was being way too demanding and putting too much of the work for her day off on everyone else. Her mother redid the table centerpieces 5 times before telling her to pick from what she had already done or she didn't get one... In the end she was rushing it, stressing everyone out, hadn't planned well and while things looked nice it was obvious it wasn't well organized.

I hope a nap helps Oliver. *hugs*

*hugs Lindsay* How are you? *edit* scratch that you answered while I was typing... Glad you're doing okay today :)

Louise 15-07-2011 07:31 PM

~~hugs everyone~~

Just to say that I am back from being on holiday :)

frenchhorn 15-07-2011 07:39 PM

*hugs Lindsay, Crimson and Louise*

I'm still feeling pretty physically ill, mentally I'm not sure how I'm feeling.

one_step_closer 15-07-2011 07:45 PM

Make sure you're looking after yourself, Oliver.

frenchhorn 15-07-2011 07:51 PM

I am trying to Lindsay, just chilling in bed going to try sleeping soon, butjust feel so ill that sleep seems impossible.

one_step_closer 15-07-2011 07:55 PM

It's good that you're at least resting, I hope you feel better soon.

frenchhorn 15-07-2011 08:01 PM

Doikers 15-07-2011 08:20 PM

I've been ill, Yuck , I have drank Ginger and Lime tea , It's horrible and I don't know what I'll do if I can't keep my night meds down.... I need Hugging (Yes I know I blatently asked :P)

frenchhorn 15-07-2011 08:24 PM

PoisonedApple 15-07-2011 09:01 PM

*huggles mark extra hard*
could you take an anti-emetic?

one_step_closer 15-07-2011 09:10 PM

*hugs Mark*

I've just stupidly told someone from a dating site about my mental health problems. I can't keep my idiotic mouth shut. My OT keeps telling me that I tell people about my issues too quickly but I didn't believe her.

Doikers 15-07-2011 09:14 PM

*Hugs Lindsay Hard*

*Hugs Oliver*

*Hugs Crimson* I took Tums type things.

*Hugs Oliver*

one_step_closer 15-07-2011 09:34 PM

*jumps on bed* I want to be a child again. Everything was so simple then. Maybe I could go about acting my shoe size.

frenchhorn 15-07-2011 09:41 PM

I wish I could be a child too Lindsay, I often look at little kids and think how little they have to worry about yet, which I could go back to that.
I have one of the hardest decisions to make in less than a few months and I don't want to make it.

one_step_closer 15-07-2011 09:46 PM

Do you want to talk about it, Oliver?

PoisonedApple 15-07-2011 09:49 PM

*hugs Mark* I hope they're helping.

*hugs Lindsay* I just blab about everything else instead of letting people know about that... it's not much better. Hmmmmmmmmm... to be 8.5 again... *throws pillows at everyone and runs*

*hugs Laura*

*hugs Heather*

*hugs Oliver* Which decision?

frenchhorn 15-07-2011 09:59 PM

I have to decide whether or not I'm going to go back to music college in sept or take another year out.
Basically I started my 3rd year last sept, but my mental health problems got really bad that I wasn't turning up for lectures or rehearsals and in the end I had a meeting with some staff and they said I either take the rest of the year out or continue and fail, so I had to take the rest of the year out, which everyone thought would help me and I would be back feeling better this sept. Unfortunatly I'm really not well, this last 3 weeks I have taken 4 overdoses and I'm hardly leaving the house. My GP spoke to me about it today and she said that she would deem me medically unfit to go back and she has tried to contact a psych I have seen to get her to assess me. The thing is I agree with them that I am medically unfit to go back, but and this is a massive, massive but my mum (plus a lot of other people including uni staff, friends, family) all expect me to go back and they think I am well enough.
This is the thing my loyalty to my mum is so great that I can not let her down by not going back, she is so happy I am going back (even agreeing to walk Kinder Scout in the peak district, which for her is a big thing with her MS) she is telling everyone I am going back and I do not want to let her down by failing her. She has done so much for me over the years and put up with a lot from me that I should at least try for her, but at the back of my mind I know I'm very unwell.
My GP is talking about me getting an assessment and them saying I am medically unfit and essentially taking it out of my hands, but even so I would still have to tell my mum.

really sorry that is so long and for some reason the hide button isnt working so I can't hide it, sorry guys.

*hugs all*

PoisonedApple 15-07-2011 10:05 PM

Could you have your doc talk to her? Then you wouldn't have to and they could probably answer a good deal of questions she may have. Might be less stressful. *squishes*

Laura2.0 15-07-2011 10:26 PM

*hugs Lindsay*
*hugs Mark*
*hugs Oliver*
*hugs Crimson*

I'm ill. I hate being ill.

PoisonedApple 15-07-2011 10:40 PM

*makes soup for ill wardies*

frenchhorn 15-07-2011 10:42 PM

*hugs Laura* sorry your ill, hope you feel better soon.

thanks Crimson for the idea, I hadn't thought of that, my GP is amazing and so nice that she would probably be ok talking to my mum, but I still don't want that to be the outcome *hugs*

PoisonedApple 15-07-2011 11:16 PM

*hugs Oliver* you may not want that outcome but making yourself more stressed over it being a potential outcome won't help either. It is always good to have the option there if it comes down to it :)

*hugs Ian* how are you?

I'm so afraid that my life is going to be difficult forever. I need out of here or I at least need to cut and overdose.

Doikers 16-07-2011 12:25 PM

*Hugs Lindsay* I know the feeling Hun, It will get better , It will .

one_step_closer 16-07-2011 01:40 PM

one_step_closer 16-07-2011 03:47 PM

Maybe you could just go for a picnic, Mark!

Doikers 16-07-2011 04:17 PM

That is a plan for one day Lindsay , But you know the weather can be changable , I want to find out where there's a park to picnic in , Thanks for the tip though (Hugs)

one_step_closer 16-07-2011 05:19 PM

Have you managed to reserve a place yet, Mark?

Doikers 16-07-2011 05:33 PM

2 , One Indian as Felicia has never had Indian food and one English,continental and East European Food .
*Hugs Lindsay*
I'm getting anxious , It's getting more and more "real".

Doikers 16-07-2011 06:24 PM

I'm pretty triggered...........It's been 12 days though I would feel crap tomorrow if I screwed up today.
My mind is convincing me Felicia won't like me when she meets me , life woulden't be worth it without her......Sorry to moan :(

one_step_closer 16-07-2011 06:50 PM

I'm sorry you're feeling that way, Mark. Maybe it would help to write down why you shouldn't self harm and also why Felicia WILL like you.
