thanks felicia, yeah that makes sense, I mainly only draw or write depressing/suicidal poems when I'm really depressed and suicidal and I do it because I want to kill myself, I'll mention it if it seems like it at the time.

*hugs* ooo ouch burning yourself with straighteners is not good, is the burn ok?
I was very scared when my sister used to try and straighten my hair, when I was still being 'female' and it was longer, thankfully its now very short so she can't come near me.

*Hugs Oliver* Good luck with your Crisis Team Meeting , Drawing disturbing things can be a healthy way of getting things out , I don't think your crisis team will frown on it.

*Hugs Felicia* Good luck with your meeting :) Writing things down is a good idea , I've done that in the past .

frenchhorn 29-11-2010 12:39 PM

thanks mark *hugs* how you feeling now?

Doikers 29-11-2010 01:08 PM

*Hugs Oliver* Hmmm I'm feeling okay , My Dad just popped in and started mucking about with my computer which makes me pissed off and anxious as I have RYL open and there a lot of personal and private stuff on my computer and I don't even know if my family know I still S.I. . He just said "theres a way to look at the web without pictures" and went into my start menu . *sigh* But I'm feeling okay , Numb , but thats the usual :S

Doikers 29-11-2010 03:19 PM

I jsut woke after napping for too long , I said to myself 1 hour max and I'm not sure how long I was but I woke up CONVINCEDthat I was late for appointments that I have tomorrow . Erp . A Bit disorientated . Hope I can sleep tonight .

I hate the snow, really. I couldn't get parked properly in my drive and I have no idea how to get out without hitting the gates. I wish my Dad was here to help me.

Doikers 29-11-2010 03:40 PM

*Hugs Lindsay* I'm not one to offer parking advice as I can't drive but maybe you should try re positioning your car whilst it's still daylight so you don't have to do it in the dark tonight/tomorrow morning? sorry if that's crap advice from a non-driver :S

one_step_closer 29-11-2010 03:52 PM

Thanks Mark, I can't be bothered going back out into the cold! I'll just see how I get on tomorrow.

How are you?

Doikers 29-11-2010 03:54 PM

I'm still feeling Okay , bit groggy from over napping and almost going out to appointments that aren't until tomorrow .

*hugs ward*
My meeting went okay. I'm tired now... emotionally exhausted.
They asked me how I've been coping since I set the date (I haven't been), what the date is (well... I don't think you guys want to know that), what I wanted from them (I'm still not sure). Then we went into a host of other problems, about how I don't sleep etc, etc. Here's the thing though: they don't think uni next semester is a good idea. Obviously, they can't force me to do anything about going vs not going. But... my date is right at the start of next semester, and I partially planned it that way... it was halfway just convenient for other reasons... So, I don't know. I've missed a whole year already, and I'm already busting my ass to graduate in a timely manner. I suppose I don't have to think about it right now though.
So... my counselor will be keeping tabs on me until my next appointment, and I'll be getting extra support from here on up through my date/ the weeks following/ whenever they feel I'm okay again.

one_step_closer 29-11-2010 04:01 PM

Can you go out and get some fresh air to try and wake up a bit?

Doikers 29-11-2010 04:50 PM

*Hugs Felicia* I Had my "Date" not too long ago , everyone here was there for me and I'm sure we'll all be there for you too . PM box always open :)

<3

Doikers 29-11-2010 05:16 PM

Well......... I took my first Antabuse since the 1st . At least I'm on it again. am I going to be on it for good ? I'll have to ask Sharron ( My Nurse ).

*Hugs Heather* I hate having no motivation . I know how that goes . :S

*Spots and Hugs Laura*

SoMuchMore 29-11-2010 05:22 PM

*hugs lindsay* i really hate driving in the snow too.. and i hate the cold.. my window is broken right now too so its freezing in my apartment heh.

*hugs mark and hands over some coffee to wake him up* it wasn't that "late" or "early" when i posted last night.. it was around 1am here. I usually don't sleep until about 2 or 3 unfortunately. Glad you are going back on the antabuse, i know its probably a tough decision, but i would hate to see anything bad happen to you b/c of drinking.

*hugs oliver* I think if it worries you that you draw them, then you should mention it. However, as others have already said, sometimes drawing/writing is cathartic. I'm sorry you had to pull out of schooling for right now. Hopefully in the time off you can get some extra support, who knows, maybe even your family will be of some help if they realize you are struggling still. I'm glad you teacher was so nice about everything.

*hugs felicia* we will be here for you whenever you need support hun. Do you think taking another semester off and getting into maybe some more therapy/counseling might help? I know you want to graduate in a timely manner, but it might be easier to do that if you are feeling okay while doing uni.

*hugs lia* how r u today?

*hugs jordyn, shad, kahlia, and helen* hope you all are alright.

*hugs heather* sounds like we are in the same boat work wise and lacking motivation. I also see you are waiting on professors for things too... i hate it. :-/ Hope they email the admissions person soon

Sorry if i missed some ppl.. read things, but just did individuals for people since i posted last night. its hard to catch up sometimes.

I'm back at uni now... and I'm sick... also, really really stressed about my graduate school apps b/c one of my professors has not sent in his letter of recommendation and its due wednesday!! I've already tried emailing him several times and called him as well.. no response. He agreed to write it a month ago though so... this is a little ridiculous. Anyway, sorry about my professor annoyance rant. I just struggle enough with future stuff as it is, and i don't like that my status for things is dependent on other peoples work... i dont like feeling out of control.

misskitty112 29-11-2010 05:32 PM

*hugs Heather* I too, have a ton of crap to do and no motivation. haha.

*Hugs Mark* I agree with Laura. I'm glad you're back on it, I'd hate to see something bad happen to you.

*Hugs Laura* I'm sorry you're sick, and have a broken window, and have an annoying professor. I'm pretty good with the professor crowd, I can usually get them to do their work, you want me to come talk with him? lol.

I'm done with today except for work. Do I really have to go in? Is it that necessary? I really just wanna hide for the rest of today.

risenfromperdition 29-11-2010 05:35 PM

*hugs felicia*
<3
uhm i dunno, if you think work would just be more stress then maybe call in sick? but if you're just gonna be sitting in your room thinking thats not good either so dunno ><

Doikers 29-11-2010 05:44 PM

*Hugs Laura* I'm sorry you are sick:( and that your window is busted :S *Special de-stressing Hugs*

*Hugs Felicia*

*Hugs Heather*

I'm sorry, there's too much to keep up on, but I'm glad your appoinment was OK Felicia, I hope they can help you, and we are all here for you too.
