*cuddles all*

Hels, how're you doing, sweetie??

Mark, we didn't make it to the worship thing last night, nor to church this morning... I am not feeling well due to med side effects (girly stuff that I've written about before)... ugh. :( And I'm so exhausted anyway. Blah. How are you??

Jess, glad you popped in, was beginning to wonder where you were!! Stay strong, sweet. Also, same about Lia, seems like it's been 3 weeks but maybe not? I can't remember...

I'm so exhausted... :( ...got up at 5am again today, couldn't sleep any longer. Played WoW for awhile - the warrior I started 3 or so days ago is now level 18, nearly 19, and has a sparklepony awaiting her in her bags. :) I'm excited rather, for her to hit 20 and be able to dual-wield weapons. :) WoW seems to be the only thing besides my cello that I'm "living for" at the moment... everything else is kind of either "blah" or just outright "bad." :'( Oh well...

*more cuddles, then disappears for awhile where no one can find her*

Doikers 15-08-2010 04:03 PM

*Hugs April* Hmmm I'm sorry you didn't get to church :(

I'm okay I guess , back at my flat for a couple of hours , paid my bills , took a bath , am a little anxious about doing some CBT based work tommorow with my nurse but the numbness/apathy is mostly covering my anxiety, thats an up side I guess? I got to see Hannah may friend for coffee yesterday which was good :)No-one from the cmht has contacted me since my SW went off having hurt his leg since 29th of July and I was talking of suicide then so they increased my Lithium but no-ones been in touch :S

Doikers 15-08-2010 04:06 PM

Oh and I think that Lia is away, forgot to say that .....

shadowedsoul 15-08-2010 05:27 PM

cuddles all. cheers mark for saying you would miss me.
kahlia: thanks could do with that right now, thank you.
taz: yeah i hope so too, really not ready to loose my gran.
april: hope you start feeling better soon, take care of yourself.

hmm fell asleep at 5am, i think the triedness won out. hmm woke up at ten, so in kind of tierd right now, but a well. having a quiet day, going to have bbq as its roasting today.

MammaMia 15-08-2010 05:40 PM

Mark, you're right, Lia's away for 3 weeks I think it was. Think she's been away for one or nearly has?

misskitty112 15-08-2010 07:20 PM

I am moved into uni. yay!

I will take and post pics once I clean.
Also, I had a moderately good day at the fair with my brother yesterday. I just wish I wasn't so anxious about going out to dinner with my roommate. =/

Doikers 15-08-2010 07:37 PM

I'm not sure when she went away but you're probably right Helen :)

*Hugs Felicia* Cool that you are back at uni and had a good time with your brother . Anxiety sucks royally Felicia but I hope you enjoy yourself.

Scarletdreamer 15-08-2010 07:47 PM

Yeh, I knew that Lia was going to Canada for 3 weeks or so, just can't recall when she left. :-/ Bad wardie, bad bad.

I am so exhausted but I'm going to try & push through the day without napping. I have no idea if it will happen or not, but... hey, it's worth a shot? :-S Have been on WoW a lot and read some too, want to play cello but not so sure my brain's up to it, lol.

Just want to feel better. Am feeling miserable right now & have all day due to Abilify side effects. :'(

*hides in a hole and scribbles on the walls with markers* :(

Doikers 15-08-2010 08:19 PM

Oh April you are NOT a bad wardie , I'm not sure when Lia left either hmmm . * Hugs Aprils Brain gently *

Doikers 15-08-2010 09:34 PM

Ohhhh wish me luck with this CBT based Lifestyle "Thing I am doing with my nurse tomorrow please :S I'm a little anxious about it . I was a Guinea Pig for when my previous CPN ( community psychiatric nurse ) was training to do it and I REALLY didn't like it , that was years ago but still I'm anxious.

I'm tired , Night ward mates, Sweet dreams all :)

Scarletdreamer 15-08-2010 09:37 PM

G'night Mark, sleep well... *cuddles*

SoMuchMore 15-08-2010 10:38 PM

*hugs for everyone*

*tackles april b/c i spy you*

I'm back at uni now. Alone time at last.

misskitty112 15-08-2010 11:11 PM

Laura, I'm back too... only I'm not exactly happy about it.
I got kicked out of my sorority over the summer (cause I had a 2.4 GPA and I guess they decided my summer class wasn't worth waiting for, even though now my GPA meets their guidelines) and I realize now, that my automatic friends are gone. I have other friends, but they mostly commute, so now I'm lonely and **** like that.

SoMuchMore 16-08-2010 12:10 AM

*hugs felicia* that really sucks about your sorority and friend situation. Maybe try to look at this as an opportunity to meet new people? I know thats easier said than done, but it could be true.

*curls up and wishes to disappear*

Kahlia1981 16-08-2010 01:24 AM

*huggles everybody*

I hope my book arrives today... Though my housemate is joking that I'll have to buy a coffee table to put it on.
Dinner with my family for my brothers birthday last night went really well although I started freaking out and had to take a "White M&M" and disappear for a bit. :-( Otherwise was very good and I even scored a kiss from my youngest niece!!

risenfromperdition 16-08-2010 01:34 AM

*curls up in corner and sighs*
i gotta make dinner for everyone tomorrow, wed, fri every week... [apparently i should be 'taking up more responsibility around here'], so my aunt bought me a cookbook and it has all the cals and fat and carbs and all that in it... shoot me. at least if someone else makes it can pretend i doesnt care cuz not really know how much is in it and just... meh. i dont even wannnna eat, but gonna hafta if cooking and isnt fair.

adn i got told how much of a failure i am basically for about 40 minutes yesterday... joyous and apparently i wont have health insurance cuz you cant be full time if you're not seeking a degree there and dads insurance wont cover me if im not full time and ugh. and apparnetly im the reason my dad has to work 2 jobs and they just 'wasted a ton of money for me to screw around for 3 years'... its called i dont even wanna be alive- let alone having energy to do anythingg ><

*sigh* sorry for whining when im not even supporting people :/ *hides in blankie fort*

englishrose 16-08-2010 01:50 AM


I love that one your taking more responsibility around here!! I cant count how many times i heard that!

You could either cook really bad and they wont make you do it again or do something really healthy the other night i had to cook so i did a vegatable filo roll. really simple some roasted vegetables and i litle cheese and filo simple low in cals just use really little cheese or add it in one end and little in other and have that part!

I hope things go well XX

risenfromperdition 16-08-2010 02:03 AM

thankss. and yeah, the annoying part is my brother does nothing all day but because he's not the one that did horrid at uni, no one ****ing cares. *scowl* hes bloody perfect at everything, and doesnt have to deal with all this ****... meh. but whenever i try to explain i get told im just making excuses- no im just trying to EXPLAIN why i cant focus most of the time and dont even wanna get outta bed >.> [apparently if i dont get up at 9 all week next week they wont pay for uni because 'clearly dont care'.. then im just sittitng here thinking and just... ugh] and my dad keeps not letting me go online, yet i also cant smoke becuase its 'too dry outside' ... what on earth does he expect? o_O lol.


frenchhorn 16-08-2010 02:11 AM

hey all, just popping in quickly to say hi, I'm back, will tell you all about it when I am not falling asleep on the keyboard.
*cuddles to all*

risenfromperdition 16-08-2010 02:23 AM

*offers cuddles back to oliver*
sleep good :)

risenfromperdition 16-08-2010 02:45 AM

who wants to make a decision on dinner tomorrow for me? its driving me maaad trying to choose something i doesnt even want anyway haha

Kahlia1981 16-08-2010 03:47 AM

Heather: Gourmet bread rolls? A bread roll each with butter/margarine, ham (of whatever flavour you feel like although triple smoked goes well), jarlsberg cheese and semi-dried tomatoes ...

That's what I make my housemate for lunch. Oh, and also sometimes for dinner when I can't make up my mind because I have a tendency to freak out in supermarkets lol.

* Spaghetti bolognaise (excuse the bad spelling)
* Chicken kiev with salad or like a pasta salad or something - really good because you can really munch down on the salad
* Bangers and mash (sausages and mashed potatoes)
* Home made pizza - buy the base and put stuff you like on it, or you can make the base - there's hundreds of recipes for pizza bases online
... Sorry, I'm out of ideas at the moment.

*big hugs* to you though hun, I know what that kind of situation can be like.

Doikers 16-08-2010 10:48 AM

*Spots April* You are an Early bird today !

nicole94 16-08-2010 12:46 PM

*hugs everyone* hows your weekend been? i had fun camping (apart from a few major panick attacks.) but am glad to be home.

Doikers 16-08-2010 01:20 PM

*Hugs Nicole* :) I'm glad you had a good time camping aside from the panic attacks .
I was at my parents friday-sunday , Saw both my Grans and my Best Friend whom I LOVE so that was nice . I just got back from the shops with groceries to put in a hamper I am making for my sister who is moving out , I need some Ribbon to tye around the box. I had my nurse at 12pm today but we didn't do the CBT stuff because she only had a half hour free for me, doing it on thursday now :S

time to change 16-08-2010 01:47 PM

wow, there's lie nearly fifty pages or something since i was last on, will read them all when i get a chance. well, theres lots gone on in the last few weeks. first i was admitted to hospital, and was only meant to be there for 72 hours (sapphire care plan), but when i arrived the hospital i went to doesn't do sapphire yet... so i was in for 11 days. things got worse and worse for me when i was in. i was discharged two weeks ago. then i went straight to my mums, as it was my sister's 21st birthday. i have only just come back today, as he had a baby boy on friday. i was meant to be beck like a week ago, but she ended up going 6 days overdue. feeling a bit crappy today, being back on my own after 3 1/2 weeks of being surrounded by people, but a bit of good came out of being at hospital, as i am going to volunteer at the shop! so i'm back!!! will reply to posts later

misskitty112 16-08-2010 01:56 PM

Nicole, I'm glad you had fun camping =) *hugs*
Mark, I'm glad you had fun at your parents'. I'm not sure what to say about the whole situation with the nurse, cause I'm still not sure if i would be relieved/irritated/angry.... or what really. haha.
Steph, *hugs* I'm sorry about the hospital and the feeling crappy.

I am... tired. It's 9 AM, and I have what seems like a lot to do, although I'm not really sure if it's really a lot or if my mind is making it seem like that. Anyway, I cut last night, cause my roommate was in super bitch mode, and it felt like she loathed my presence. So... I cut. Stupid me. Not even in a good hideable spot.... so I'm just hoping I can slip under the radar until it heals, cause I really really really don't want to go through being kicked out of uni housing again. That had to have been one of the lowest points of my life.

Doikers 16-08-2010 02:03 PM

*Hugs Steph* I'm sorry you were in hospital , but are you looking forward to volunteering ? I'm going down the volunteering route myself after MUCH pushing by support workers .

*Hugs Felicia* I'm sorry you cut , I hope you can hide it well and keep it clean , sterile etc you know .

Scarletdreamer 16-08-2010 02:17 PM

*cuddles all* AHHH I was spotted!! :P

So tired. Will try & do individuals later...

I really need to start applying for that job... :-/

Scarletdreamer 16-08-2010 02:19 PM

Oh & Steph, welcome back. :) *hugs*

nicole94 16-08-2010 02:21 PM

*huggles everyone* thanks guys. ugh. i really dont wanna go to my individual today :(

taz35 16-08-2010 02:58 PM

*hugs all who have posted*

Sorry, my back has been really sore for the past 4 days so sitting here at the computer typing up all the individuals would only make it worse :( I'll swing by later and hopefully reply to each of you.

Take care xxx

Doikers 16-08-2010 03:26 PM

*Hugs Taz's back*

*Hugs April*

*Hugs Nicole* Is it therapy you don't want to go to ?

nicole94 16-08-2010 04:38 PM

*hugs mark* yeah it was therapy, but i went, have just got back. i saw my old therapist while i was there, its really made me think about how i was then compared to how i am now....its strange

PoisonedApple 16-08-2010 04:57 PM

misskitty112 16-08-2010 05:24 PM

*hugs Nicole*

I think... I got most everything done, except stuff for the organization fair, but I have to wait for my best friend/la presidenta of our organization to come pick me up to do the stuff. I'm kinda excited about this... I missed her in the oh, I don't know, 3 days we haven't seen each other.

I think I may put my fair pictures on facebook while I wait.

PoisonedApple 16-08-2010 05:48 PM


*Hugs Crimson* Whats the matter ? I hope it's ok to ask
I'll PM you.

SoMuchMore 16-08-2010 06:27 PM

*cuddles crimson* There is a point hun. Here if you need to talk.

*hugs steph* welcome back! I'm sorry to hear things got so bad for you and that you wound up in the hospital. I hope that the volunteering goes well though! Its good to have some sort of distraction like that.

*hugs mark* How r u doing today?

*hugs nicole* Did therapy go okay? I'm sorry that you hate living at home. I wish your family would be nicer to you :-/

*hugs taz* I'm sorry that your back hurts. Dont worry about individuals if it is hurting too badly. Hope that it feels better soon.

*hugs april* How r u doing hun? Good luck with the application for that job.

*hugs helen* You haven't really posted lately. You okay hun?

*hugs oliver* Nice to see you! Looking forward to an update from you later. Hope things are okay.

*hugs heather* Oh hun, you are NOT a failure, no matter what you family is telling you. I hate that they make you feel like this. I hope the dinners go well though despite everything. You can find some really healthy alternative meals, and some of kahlia's options sounded really yummy.

*hugs kahlia* glad that your dinner went well and that you scored a kiss from your niece lol. Hope that you got your book today, what's the book for? sounds like its quite a big one since it needs it own coffee table :-P

*hugs felicia* I'm sorry to hear that you cut, good job on getting things done though. I hope that you have a good time with your friend!

*hugs englishrose* hi! I'm Laura!

*hugs everyone else that I may have missed*

So Wednesday i'm going to have to take my graduate school exam. I'm getting really nervous about it, then uni starts and I have to start applications and work and was asked to make 2 websites for clubs on campus... It just hit me how crazy my life is going to get.
I messed up last night too... nothing horrible... but yeah. I don't know. I just wanted to get out of my head for awhile. I tried to put off for like 6 hours of horrible shaking urges, but then just gave in... i guess i failed.

nicole94 16-08-2010 06:32 PM

*hugs laura.* you didnt fail, we all slip up, just try again. i feel really bad about moaning about my family, because some people have worse than mine, but the emotional abuse is just messing with my head :(

Doikers 16-08-2010 06:41 PM

*Hugs Laura* Sorry you cut but that doesen't make you a failure, it makes you human :)

MammaMia 16-08-2010 08:29 PM

*cuddles everyone*

Laura, you're not a failure sweetheart, I promise. Loving all the individuals. I'm not doing so well but I'm still fighting on..

Doikers 16-08-2010 08:46 PM

*Hugs Helen* oooh you changed your signature pic !

Laura , I'm doing strangley okay today hmmm, I have made many trips to get groceries to put in a box for my gift to my Sister and Brother in law and their baby as a housewarming gift and I've wrapped it up in a wide dark purple ribbon and Gold Bows .

That sounds like an awesome gift basket. And one week is big and after a while it just turns into two, then three, and so on. :D Good job. *hugs*
