*cuddles Mark* I'm sorry you SI'd that badly, love... wish I could be there IRL to offer support, but just try to imagine lil sister hugs. :) Things will get better, I know that they will, you've just got to keep hanging in there. And anyway, I think that nearly anyone would've SI'd after such a deep and scary conversation with your nurse today. Well done for getting through it.

Oh Felicia, sweetie... *cuddles* So sorry that your mum is being so nasty. People really are mean, Mark is right... wish I could be there IRL for you as well. :( If it means anything at all, to me (and probably the other wardies too) you're sweet, kind, intelligent, and - yes - feisty. :D As you know, you're NOT the only one who's been in the hospital for SI, obviously... so yeah. That's really a mean message that you got from your roomie. Are you sure you want to share a room with her? couldn't you change and pay a little extra for a single or is that too much money/too dangerous for you? Just curious, sorry if it were a dense suggestion. :-S Oh, & glad you liked the song. :D

Ugh , People calling at my door for charity , put me on the spot , I feel guilty so say no when they ask if I was over 25 (I'm 29) and they just look at you like they KNOW you're lying , I just had that and now I feel bad for lying :( and what charity sends people round at 8.50 pm anyway? , I just ignored the door earlier when they came but they came back and I thought it might be my neighbour or someone at the door.

EDIT: That make's it sound like I'm a scrooge ,I'm not . I do donate to one charity and I live on income support and I can't afford to give money to every charity that asks .

Thanks April. I want to get a single, but I'm not allowed by my uni, cause in 2008 I had one, and went through a rough time, and attempted suicide, and was found by my RA cause I didn't respond when she knocked on my door for an emergency floor meeting.
So... I'm hoping my friend can just accept that it's a struggle and it's hard to stop, and I'm trying.
And I'm beginning to wonder how long it's gonna take me to calm down. I feel like exploding... gahhhhh...

shadowedsoul 09-08-2010 09:30 PM

Erm sorry thought I could write that and be okay with it, but I can't. It doesn't matter it's okay. Curls up and hides

I am sorry that things are hard for you. I hope your friend does accept that it is a struggle. We are here for you.

*hugs* We are here for you there is nothing to be sorry for.

Doikers 09-08-2010 10:19 PM

Well , I'm going to head to bed :|
Night wardmates :)
Early ( for me ) morning tommorow.

Nicole I hope you had a good day sun-bathing and drinking cider :)

Louise 09-08-2010 10:21 PM

Night Mark, Take care.

misskitty112 09-08-2010 10:26 PM

Goodnight, Mark!

PoisonedApple 09-08-2010 11:11 PM

Good night Mark, hope tomorrow goes ok :)

MammaMia 09-08-2010 11:13 PM

Ah I didn't get worried about, fun times.

*cuddles everyone and curls up*

PoisonedApple 09-08-2010 11:23 PM

*cuddles Helen* How are you?

MammaMia 09-08-2010 11:26 PM

Happy that my internet is back up & working. Was out for over 24 hours :/ But otherwise....not so good. *cuddles Crimson*

Kahlia1981 09-08-2010 11:27 PM

*huggles everybody*

Sorry for the lack of individual replies but I'm thinking of all of you.

Got to try and ring the dreaded Centrelink (Social Security) shortly and tell them that I'm going to change from TAFE to Uni . . . they aren't going to like it but I can't go to a TAFE that still hasn't responded to my email asking for a marking criteria 10 weeks ago!!! I ended up submitting the assessment just over a week ago without one because otherwise I could have used up the entire time I was allocated for the subject waiting . . . Not to mention urgent enquiries from the co-ordinator don't get replies for at least three weeks. I can handle getting very simple assignments back in three weeks - but I hate to think how long this last assignment is going to take . . .

MammaMia 09-08-2010 11:27 PM

*cuddles Kahlia* Hope it's not too stressful for you.

Kahlia1981 09-08-2010 11:28 PM

Helen: Oh My Goodness!! 24+ hours without Internet?? How did you survive? I struggle to last an hour without the internet!! *huggles*

Kahlia1981 09-08-2010 11:29 PM

Helen: Thanks. Me too . . . Although I think it might be to be honest . . .

PoisonedApple 09-08-2010 11:42 PM

*nods* having the internet back is def good.
*offers plushie to help make not so good feeling better*
*cuddles all

Kahlia1981 09-08-2010 11:55 PM

*cuddles Crimson* - Sorry, didn't mean to ignore you there. Me bad. :-( How are you doing?

That was the easiest phone call to Centrelink I've ever had ...

PoisonedApple 10-08-2010 12:05 AM

That's alright Kahlia.
Glad your call wasn't too difficult.

MammaMia 10-08-2010 12:05 AM

Kahlia - I didn't survive very well without internet. I pretty cried for a good two hours and stuff. My best friend phoning me lots has really helped. It was even worse with various things and my brain thinking about suicide. Fun times :/ I was really low today, as was said best friend, but we got through it. Glad your call was easy.

Crimson - thank you.

(hugs for all)

Scarletdreamer 10-08-2010 12:35 AM

Hels, when I saw your screenname as the last typed post, I was like, "Wait a minute, she hasn't been around for a bit." You were missed, so there... and it's really hard to keep up with what wardies are missing when, you know? Like I know Lia is gone to Canada for 3 weeks or so, but just randomly popping in & out wardies - they're hard to keep track of. Sorry if I'm making no sense, not in a good "head-space" right now. :( *cuddles*

My eye twitch is back. I texted my NP earlier today and asked her how long I'd be on Abilify, etc., but no response yet - and it's 7:30pm. I texted her around eleven-1pm-ish, can't remember exactly when & I'm too lazy to check right now. But I forgot to mention the eye twitch. Ugh. Probably should've... :-/ Seems like something she'd want to know about. And I did mention that my mood was low. Today is the first day I'm back on the full dosage of Tegretol. Ugh. I hate meds, hate having to take them, hate having to order them, just hate it all!!!

Sorry for the rant. :-S

*cuddles everyone else*

Oh & Crimson, how are you, love? Long time no see around the ward...

SoMuchMore 10-08-2010 12:38 AM

*hugs everyone*

helen - i was just thinking about you earlier b/c you hadn't posted. Was going to post about it tomorrow if you didn't pop up soon.

crimson - i've missed seeing you around too.

kahlia - glad that the phone call was easy

april - glad that you managed to text your NP, hope she gets back to you soon.

sorry.. i know those are crappy replies.. but its all i can do right now.

Scarletdreamer 10-08-2010 12:42 AM

Laura, how are YOU doing, sweetie? You can PM me if you need/want to... I'm here. *cuddles* And thanks for doing replies... even little replies can be epic if you're struggling a ton.

MammaMia 10-08-2010 12:49 AM

Good job I did pop up then....:P

*cuddles you both*

SoMuchMore 10-08-2010 12:53 AM

*cuddles april and helen*

oh and, *cuddles kahlia* because I spy you!

Scarletdreamer 10-08-2010 01:00 AM

*glomps Kahlia, Laura, and Hels 'cause I spot you all!!* :D

Hels, yes, it is good that you turned back up. :)

taz35 10-08-2010 03:42 AM

*hugs everyone who's posted in the last 24 hours* I was hoping maybe there'd be less replies so I could do individuals, but no such luck :( Sorry wardmates...

Things have been crazy around here lately. Found out my favourite coworker has stage 4 brain cancer, and he's been given 12-18 months to live. It's bringing back memories of one of my other friends who had a brain aneurysm in January and died, it just really sucks. I SI'ed earlier and just find it hard to care about anything anymore. On the bright side, I finally got my chemistry mark back... passed with a 70, which isn't great, but the final was crazy hard, so I'm satisfied with that.

*leaves extra care packages on the table for anyone who needs them*

misskitty112 10-08-2010 04:43 AM

*curls up in the ward*
I'm staying here tonight.

Doikers 10-08-2010 09:23 AM

*Hugs Taz* I'm so sorry to hear about your co-worker . Please look after your cut okay .

*Hugs April* Did you get through to that job on the phone?

*Hugs Crimson*

*Hugs Laura*

*Hugs Helen* I wondered where you were Helen . You WERE missed .

Kahlia1981 10-08-2010 09:57 AM

*huggles everyone*

The mood has come crashing down ... even my housemate has noticed. Now to act all happy and pretend that everything is okay so that he thinks I am hunky-dory and fine ... not F.I.N.E.

Doikers 10-08-2010 10:09 AM

:( *Huggles Kahlia* I'm sorry that your mood has crashed , did anything in particular cause it or was it one of those sudden things? Sorry you don't have to tell me if you don't want too.

nicole94 10-08-2010 11:15 AM

*huggles everyone* i had a good time at my friends yesterday, it got cloudy by the time i got there but we sat in her room and had a few to drink and chatted and then she cut my hair and dyed it purple :D

Kahlia1981 10-08-2010 11:28 AM

*huggles everybody*

Mark: I don't know why the mood crashed. :crying: I am just so over all this. But how are you hun? *huggles*

Nicole: Glad you had a good time at your friends. Hope you are feeling okay. *offers hugs*

To everyone who wanders in: *big hug, glomps, huggles, cuddles etc*

Just so damn over this . . .

nicole94 10-08-2010 11:32 AM

*hugs kahlia* thanks, how are you feeling (besides the obvious.)

Kahlia1981 10-08-2010 11:47 AM

*hugs Nicole* - yeah, just ... yeah.

MammaMia 10-08-2010 11:48 AM

*cuddles all*

Scarletdreamer 10-08-2010 12:47 PM

*cuddles everyone*

Kahlia, so sorry to hear that your mood's crashed. :( I'm kind of the same way, I guess, I don't know. I really am quite low, lower than normal... so can empathize... am also so ****ing over all of this, so sick of it, just want to give up but I CAN'T... anyway, sorry, enough about me. :-S *cuddles*

Hels, Mark, how are you doing, loves? *cuddles for both*

Nicole, sounds like you had fun!! :D That's always good. *cuddles* I bet your hair looks awesome. :) Is it possible for you to post pics?

Taz... how are you doing, sweet? Well done on passing your chem, even with a 70, that's not too shabby given the crap that you've been going through. :) How are you doing otherwise?? We've missed you about. *cuddles*

Laura, Felicia, how are you two doing this morning? feeling any better? *cuddles gently*

Me, well, yeah. I'm not doing too well mentally, am not in a good head-space right now and it's driving me batty. (Well, battier. Hah. Must be honest. >_<) I did call about the job but it was almost as if I were calling a fax machine (?) because of the noises the phone made after 2 rings. So that was frustrating. My parents want me to walk to the place that houses the support service, but I'm loathe to as that place has bad memories for me (really really awful pdocs). Oh, and my NP did get back to me, but just asking for clarification on what I said. So I feel dumb for not making what I said any clearer. >_< Stupid stupid April... just got the texts this morning so yeah.

Nightmares again last night. :( This time I was IN WoW and it was so very weird. Anyway. Jarrod woke me up from them thankfully. That was good.

*extra cuddles and tea for all* :)

I wish I knew if/when things were going to get better so I know if life is worth holding on to.

Afternoon Everyone, *hugs all*

Doikers 10-08-2010 01:20 PM

I just got back from the volunteer buero . Anne , my worker took me to the cyber cafe which is right there next door and with had a Q&A session with the guy in charge who seemed very nice . I Even got an application form and CRB form !! I wasn't expecting that this morning when I got up, I actually acheived something and social situations SO freak me out but Anne came with me which helped keep me calm . Now I can tell my nurse ( Sharron) that I actually did something proactive for myself like she kicked me in the behind (Figurativly) to do .

*Hugs April* I'm sorry you are low :(

*Hugs Nicole* I'm glad you had a good time yesterday :)

*Hugs Kahlia*

*Hugs Lindsay*

*Hugs Helen*

Doikers 10-08-2010 01:21 PM

Hi Emma :) , how are you ? I'm Mark .

Cherry Tree 10-08-2010 01:24 PM

Hi Mark, Well done on such a productive morning!
I'm not doing so great, I'm feeling very low about my weight and am desperate to purge but can't.

Doikers 10-08-2010 01:35 PM

*Hugs Emma if okay* I'm sorry you are feeling low .

MammaMia 10-08-2010 02:00 PM

Emmmmmmaaaaaaa *cuddles tight* Please try to keep safe sweetheart x

*cuddles everyone*

PoisonedApple 10-08-2010 04:58 PM

For all who asked (yesterday I'm sure, but I just read through) I just am presently. Too busy lately to be any particular way of anything but being. My coworker who was out for a day surgery 2 months ago and was supposed to be on part time for a week after then just in the cast and brace and then back to normal work? yeah well she's been out more days than not since then and so I was covering her part time and out days and friday we got told she'll be out for another whole month. so I get a max of 3.5 hours in my own office to do my work per day... then home to make dinner and deal with the kids and the inlaws (the kids are very well behaved when the inlaws aren't provoking, teasing or yelling at them). *sigh* i went to bed early yesterday though and got almost a whole normal night of sleep.
as for my lack of replying i've been around mostly (not on the weekend but every day during the week) just either haven't had time to reply or couldn't make my brain form the words right so anything i said was understandable...

*huggles everyone*
*cuddles taz* good job on your exam and sorry to hear about your coworker...
*waves to emma* hi, i'm crimson. *offers plushie to cuddle*

shadowedsoul 10-08-2010 05:46 PM

Hugs everbody. Hmm I feel low, sad, and angery all rolled into one. Had another mission with my gran, as she had to go into hospital to get assessed And of course she mad a scene, cry and saying to my dad I want to go home. And I have been good to you, if you loved me you would take me home. She can't go home so, this part I'm angery about she said well I hope god strikes you down. I know she got this going on at the sec, but I agree with my mum she knows what she is saying most of the time, and just because my gran is not getting her way. She just hurts people. Damn it this whole thing sucks and killing me because this isn't my gran, my gran is kind and caring person.it's like she being switched with someone else, and we lost our caring gran. That what it feels like sounds stuipedi guess.

PoisonedApple 10-08-2010 05:58 PM

that doesn't sound stupid it sounds difficult. *hugs*

Doikers 10-08-2010 07:00 PM

That doesn't sound stupid Jill , not at all.

Doikers 10-08-2010 07:08 PM

Hey Crimson!!:) *Spots*
