Wow. I'm pretty new here and I signed up for a daily digest to my email, so I was surprised to see all the hugging and support that occurred in the span of just one day.
***Hugs and love and good thoughts to all who are struggling today.***
I am already loving this forum. I was in a dentists office today while my daughter was having her teeth cleaned and i read about a young "Disney" star who has been cutting and starving herself. She recently found out she was bipolar II. I wonder if there is a big link between the anxiety of bipolar II and self injury? My daughter and I have both been diagnosed as bipolar II (II is less severe than I...no intense manias but, often, a lot of anxiety) Years ago the cutting got me a diagnosis of borderline personality disorder with depression but later they decided i was just bipolar. Anyone else have this diagnosis?

Hello all - *offers hugs to all who can accept & waves at others*
To anyone I haven't met yet during my .... absences ... Hi, I'm Kahlia.

I'm really sorry for being such a bad wardie over the last little while but our relocation is taking place on Friday (eep) and we'll be without internet for about 2 weeks, so I'm jumping in to say hi, bye for now, & "I love you all!!!!"

Before I go further, I know that one or two of you at least are going to jump in with something along the lines of "not a bad wardie". I thank you for that already, because it reminds me that I must always be on the lookout for negative thinking.

I really just want to use this post to let you all know that I'm here & thinking of you all, and I hope that you all get through the study, life and so on expectations and demands. I also want to leave *hugs*, *safe love and care packages*, *stuffed animals*, *zero-calorie treats* and demand that someone pay attention to Puppy SinClair. :-p The poor puppy of the ward has been spending a lot more time in solitude so if anyone remembers can they feed him or offer him attention. :-p

Seriously though, I am going to miss you all, but I'll be back as soon as our internet is reconnected and jumping right back in to the ward. All of you take care and make sure you look after yourselves and each other okay?

*feeds puppy Sinclair and offers to look after him while Kahlia is away*

*hugs Kahlia* I'll look after puppy sinclair when I'm about, but I have limited internet access for a few weeks.

*hugs Mark* good luck for your psych appt, when is it so I can send positive vibes?

*hugs Ninais* How are you doing?

*hugs Ian* pkease don't give up, stay strong.

*hugs Michelle, Crimson and Sefka* how are you all?

*sits in corner* today is a bad day, for many reasons and I really want to OD, but doing everything I can not to as I promised my mum I'd skype her tonight.

Doikers 04-05-2011 03:51 PM

*Hugs Kahlia* Here it comes... You are NOT a bad wardie! Best of luck with your move Hun!

*Hugs Oliver* My Pysch appointment is at 10am on Friday , All Positive vibes are appreciated , Thankyou :)

*Pats Puppy SinClair*

frenchhorn 04-05-2011 03:52 PM

*hugs Mark* lots of positive vibes shall be sent your way for friday :)

dontwantyoutoknow 04-05-2011 04:48 PM

*hugs everyone* I wish I could make it better for you all. :-(

I'm shaking really bad. I have a scary appointment tomorrow and I'm just terrified. I want someone to go with me, but my friends don't live nearby, and I don't talk to my family about stuff much. I could take a relative in with me, but I can't talk with them there, so that would block any help I could get from the appointment, right?

PoisonedApple 04-05-2011 05:56 PM

*hugs all*

Kahlia, you are not a bad wardie :) Good luck and happy times on your move.

Mark, *advance positive vibes in a jar for use Friday* your appointment is at 1 am my time :)

Oliver, are you feeling any better?

*cuddles MJ* If they'd stop you from getting the help you need in any way (even making you clam up) then don't take them. Could you maybe bring a plushie with you or something?

Doikers 04-05-2011 06:08 PM

*Hugs Oliver* Thanks for the vibes !

*Hugs Crimson* Thankyou for the Alaskan Vibes :)

*Hugs MJ* I'm sorry hun but taking a token to focus on might help , once I took a stone I picked up and imagined it was my online support network in my pocket and it helped a little , it was when I first went to my GP about my injury .

frenchhorn 04-05-2011 06:43 PM

*hugs MJ* I agree with Mark's idea about taking something with you, or write stuff down if you think you will clam up, I'm always writing stuff down and giving it to my GP/counsellor.

*hugs Mark*

*hugs Crimson* I'm feeling crap, I ended up cutting, now I feel even worse as my best friend has been told by her parents she is not allowed to see or contact me, as I'm trans and they dont want her associating with anyone like that, so anyone who is trans. and as she is blind she can't get to the bus stop without her parents takng her there so she cant get out anywhere.

PoisonedApple 04-05-2011 07:09 PM

*hugs Oliver* Is there any way she can talk to Action for Blind People or RNIB? Guide dogs for the blind association? Maybe find a way to live independently?

frenchhorn 04-05-2011 07:21 PM

she lives on her own, but doesn't want a guide dog. its a really awful situation for her to be in.

Hi to all the new people - i'm Laura.

Kahlia - You are so not a bad wardie.

Won't be around much until the end of next week. only 10 more days of uni!

frenchhorn 04-05-2011 07:31 PM

*hugs Laura*

dontwantyoutoknow 04-05-2011 07:33 PM

Oliver - this might come out as a bit blunt, but if she's living independently of her parents, then she's evidently old enough and is classed as an adult. As an adult, it's up to her who she socialises with, not her parents. I appreciate that she relies on her parents, but it is now her decision who she hangs out with. She's an adult now and can make her own decisions.

Mark, Oliver, PoisonedApple - that is a great idea! Thanks. I'll take something I can fiddle with, to have something to do with my hands. I have healing beads, so I may take those, or wear a beaded bracelet. I'd love to have a plushie to cuddle whilst sitting there, but I'd be too embarrassed. I might take a little one in my bag though, just so it feels like some one is there.

Falling Star - What do you study?

PoisonedApple 04-05-2011 07:35 PM

*hugs Oliver* ok I must ask cuz now I'm confuzzled, so what bars her from going to the bus without them if she lives on her own? We have blind people up here that use the bus on their own, with out dogs even... Does she just not know the way?
*hugs Laura* Go You!

Doikers 04-05-2011 07:36 PM

*Hugs Laura*

*Hugs Oliver* Thats terrible but I agree with MJ .

*Hugs MJ*
