Well, it's kinda a long story. A couple of weeks ago, my sociology teacher told us about a hole punch a student once left on his desk with a note attached saying 'My name is Billy, take care of me.' And he got very attached to it (no teacher in my school has mentally grown up past the age of 7) and then someone stole it! But today, someone in our class claimed to have found Billy in the English department and took a picture on thier phone to show sir who confirmed that it was in fact Billy. So, we were all rejoicing in the possible return of Billy which meant we got about a 10 minute break from the lesson, and we were deciding whether he shoud send two of us to go and steal back Billy right at that moment, but then I said that I have a lesson in that room the next day and I'd get it for him then and he looked dead excited, bless him, and promised me a magic conker if I could. In the end, my friend Emma and I went after school, snuck into the English classroom and found Billy the Hole Punch just sitting there on the desk, so we cheered and I slipped it into my bag (the one girl in the classroom gave us a really odd look at that point) and now I am looking forward to watching the look on my teacher's face when we reunite him with Billy on Thursday :) And yes, we are a year 12 class with a middle aged teacher.

Yay, you should put a little bear face on it and then it can be Billy bear! :D

Thats So cool Lia!

Anarchymummy 25-01-2011 09:15 PM

That story made me smile Lia :)

FlyingNy 25-01-2011 09:22 PM

It made me smile too :) It's sad that it was the hightlight of my day. I am currently sat here with Billy the Hole Punch :)

Billy! 25-01-2011 09:23 PM

I'm tired and really uncomfortable :(

FlyingNy 25-01-2011 09:41 PM

Why you uncomfortable Charlie?

SparkleKitten 25-01-2011 09:55 PM

*cuddles Ward* had a stressful trip out this evening, started another row. Why can't I just be in a hospital or something so I wouldn't keep upsetting everyone...

shadowedsoul 25-01-2011 10:08 PM

arghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!!

FlyingNy 25-01-2011 11:08 PM

*Hugs Sarah* It's not your fault my dear, some people just don't understand. I get rows all the time because no one really gets me, they don't understand when I'm cold, when I can't put all the effort in I should, when I snap or push them away. I sometimes even pick fights, partly because I want to let go of some anger and partly because something inside me is hoping someone will realise what I'm doing and ask what's wrong, but it doesn't happen like that. I've realised you can be as cold and bitchy as you like, but you can't ever expect anyone to see what goes on inside because they won't.

*Hugs Jill* What's the matter sweetie?

shadowedsoul 25-01-2011 11:16 PM

my mum is being an ass, just had enough of all this crap. want out dont care anymore

*hgs Lia, Charlie, Mark, Sarah, Jess and Claire*

Lia I love the story about Billy :)

I've just restarted back on my meds after being off them for a month and my god I had forgotten how bad the side effects are, I feel so ill suddenly

FlyingNy 25-01-2011 11:29 PM

*Hugs Oliver* I'm glad Billy brought smiles to so many people :) I hope you feel better soon. But I guess it's worth it if the meds help you.

Please hold on Jill, things get better eventually. Helen is an example. She left us because she knew she'd be alright on her own, and one day that's going to be us.

shadowedsoul 25-01-2011 11:58 PM

hmm thanks lia

*huggles all*

sorry ... need to rant
The following content has been hidden - Reason : long rant at housemate
my housemate is really pissing me off at the moment. just as an example of why: we had a whole stack of washing up sitting on the side of the sink last night and he stopped me from doing it because he said that he would do it. he didn't do it before we went to bed last night and *promised* me that he would do it this morning. now i didn't sleep a wink last night. i had a really bad night and couldn't get off to sleep and he slept the night through. so this morning he wakes up and we had our morning coffee and then he crashes out on the couch!! we had to reuse dirty cups and move a whole lot of crap to even have the coffee in the first place, but he just ignored it. oh, he did walk down to the shops to pick up the paper ... i forgot that. but when he got home he just lay down on the sofa and went to sleep. i ended up having to wash the dishes because i wanted to take my morning meds before this afternoon (he just woke up and i had to get him to take his morning meds - it's now just after midday). the big reason it pisses me off is that every time he says he will do the washing up in the morning i end up doing it because he "forgets" or just crashes out and falls asleep on the sofa. we have a rule "he/she who cooks does not clean up" .... but it only seems to apply to him. if he cooks i was up. if i cook i end up cleaning up. but the bit that *really* gets my goat is that if i tried to leave it he would get shitty at me and start bitching that i don't do *anything* around the house, and start telling me that this is a shared house and we have to share the work, which starts off a two hour lecture. Grrrrrrrr

so, so, so, sorry about that. just really needed to get it out. it's been bugging me for a while. i love my housemate, i really do. but sometimes he can just be so ......... inconsiderate maybe? i don't know what it is. it can be a bit of a "one rule for you and one rule for me" type situation. i do realise he is having medication troubles, but he won't see the doctor about them, so what am i supposed to do? if he won't help himself than i certainly can't help him. *sigh*

meh. just plain over it.

one_step_closer 26-01-2011 12:40 PM

I know what you mean, Mark. I'm usually in bed for about 15 hours.

Doikers 26-01-2011 01:12 PM

I got a text as soon as I put on my phone , from Hannah L asking if it was possible to meet up this morning for coffee as she was so anxious. So naturally I said yes and went out and met up with her and we had drinks and I like to think I helped calm her as well as some Loraz she had taken but she seemed calmer when we went to our respective flats, she said so . I even cancelled meeting my Housing support worker so I could meet her , he would have been here now had I not cancelled but we end up talking crap whenever we meet , Everyone in the building is nice and/or quiet and I'm not having issues with the flat itself and it winds me up he stays for an hour every week just talking about rubbish, he could be in and out in 10 -15 minutes but insists in dredging up my hospital stays and such if he can't think what to talk about .. anyhow , tangent and mini rant over :)

I feel soooooooooooo ill from these side effects, even worse than before.
But when I got home today there was a letter waiting for me telling me that I havemy first apointment at the Charring Cross gender identity clinic on 27th June. OK its a long way off and I have been waiting a year now, so I guess 5 months isn't tooooooooo long.

Doikers 26-01-2011 07:20 PM

Oh thats good that you have an appointment Oliver , What will those people do for you ? Sorry I'm dense on the whole LGBT deal , but willing to learn :)

frenchhorn 26-01-2011 07:28 PM

they recommend your gp to prescribe you hormones, monitor you and refer you for surgery when you have been on hormones for a certain amount of time.

Doikers 26-01-2011 07:46 PM

Oh okay Oliver , thanks for explaining :)

frenchhorn 26-01-2011 07:47 PM

*hugs Mark* how are you?

Doikers 26-01-2011 08:10 PM

I'm anxious a bit , at my parents but I took my Laptop to my old room , I had the dentists , it went better than expected.

I just mainly feeling really ill because of these side effects and anxious, as tomorrow night I'm on a panel at a reception launching LGBT history month in the north west.

Billy! 26-01-2011 09:37 PM

*Cuddles Oliver* Is there anything you can do about the side effects? And is that a good thing? lol sorry.

So today is one year since me and one of my closest friends met in hospital after both taking an OD. I sent her this:
One year ago today I did something very silly, but I am glad I did that because if I didn't I would never have met you. I am so proud of you hun for how far you've come in the past year, I know it's been hard at times, and we have both nearly given up more than once, but we made it! One year later we are still fighting! It will all go away in the end, we just need to fight for it. I love you.Xx
I'm waiting for a reply :)

Doikers 26-01-2011 09:41 PM

*Hugs Charlie* I met my best IRL friend after an OD too and still meet with her and we both live in the same town now so YEY!

*Hugs Lia* Tomorrows the big hole punch unveiling?

*Hugs Oliver*

frenchhorn 26-01-2011 09:44 PM

yeah its a good thing, but scary
*hugs Charlie* I hope you get a reply soon, thats a lovely letter to somone

Billy! 26-01-2011 09:44 PM

*Hugs Mark* sometimes they're the best friends you can have :) I got a reply, it made me cry! lol

SparkleKitten 26-01-2011 09:55 PM

*cuddles Ward* my abdomen hurts. Bah. Sorry I've not been about much, things are rough for me right now. Dr doesn't know who I'm seeing and when, and I can't see Mind for over 2 weeks. And my counsellor isn't until late tomorrow night. I just want it to all go away but it won't. I can't make it stop :( Just seems like all the help seems really far away and my fiance is so stressed with having to care for me almost full time, and I wish I could just see someone to get the ball rolling, but everytime I see someone its just diverting me somewhere else. Like jumping from one lilly pad to another in a pond, just going around in circles but never actually making it across. Or spinning on a roundabout, and just as it starts to stop so I can get back on track the person I ask for help spins it harder... Its so frustrating! My head is swimming, and I know I'm being impatient but I'm not 100% safe to stay like this and almost did some stupid things this week... :/

tired as heck this morning. had to take a sleeping pill last night or i wouldn't have slept, but the sleeping pill meant i didn't move all night so my back took the brunt of it. and one of the empty units in our block has a faulty smoke alarm and has been beeping all fricking night - not helping. meh.

i guess you win some and you lose some right?

SparkleKitten 26-01-2011 09:59 PM

Thanks Mark. Just feeling a bit let down by the entire process right now. I don't know where to turn. I'm not bad enough for crisis out of hours team, but I'm not feeling good.
