*hugs april* sorry that you are feeling badly right now. And yes i am in the states. University of Iowa. I have a 4.0 too and i always still worry that im gonna screw up in my classes... so ur not alone there. Wow ur schedule sounds hard. Mine wont be horrible this semester as I dont have too many classes left. I am taking: Publication Design, Abnormal Psychology, Science/Technology/Medicene Reporting and Writing, and Perspectives on Leisure and Play (actually not as leisurely as it sound lol)

*cuddles helen* hope you are okay.

Scarletdreamer 16-01-2010 12:36 AM

Yey cool, Laura, another US person. :D Lol. Erm yeh, I'm definitely worried about this term. I don't know how it will go... :-X Last term was really rough as I got suicidal halfway through, then had a hypomanic episode, then started getting bulimic urges. :( Anyway... your classes sound cool. I took Abnormal Psych in fall 2007 - good class, that. :) Hope you enjoy it. Do you have a 4.0 overall or just in your major? Either way, it's awesome. *cuddles*

*cuddles Helen* How're you doing tonight, love?

Still feeling really low... sad... just watched an episode of Bones and that distracted me for a bit but not long enough... I really want to purge as I feel soo full from just broth... I hate my life, want to die, want to give up... but I can't, because I have to live for Jarrod. I HATE THIS!!!!!

*cuddles everyone*

I was just starting to trust my tdoc when he opened the locked door that hides all my memories of the SA I suffered as a child. I told him not to, that I wasn't ready for it, but he opened the door and then started saying that he wanted to talk to my mother and my housemate about it. I told him no but couldn't give him a reason ... other than a straight forward I said no and that means no. I wasn't sure that I wanted to go back and see him again, but I went to the appointment yesterday in order to give him another chance, but now I'm wary ... It'll take a bit of time for me to get that trust back.

As for the suicidal thoughts, I really don't know. My housemate and I talked about whether the hospital or crisis team were an option, but the hospital would just send me back home again and the crisis team are about as useful as a bicycle would be to a fish. They take the easy cases - like short term depression - and let the difficult cases hang. At the moment I'm just trying to get through day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute ...

My housemate is trying to get hold of some crutches for me this morning. Both trying to keep from aggravating my ankle, and stopping my other leg (which is bearing all of my not-inconsiderable weight) from getting too sore to use. *sigh* Damn body seems to be falling apart.

*limps around the ward and cuddles everyone she can see then sits down in a corner and cuddles bear*

*cuddles all*

I woke up at flipping 4am >_> Can I get back to sleep? No :( Had a nightmare about one of my best friends :'(

zowie 16-01-2010 05:57 AM

Sorry...I'm being really drifty. So have only skimmed through the pages since my last post.

KAHLIA!! *hugs* I missed you!!! I hope you're okay sweetness. <3

Helen, I haven't been able to sleep at all yet...planning to go try again in a minute. Nightmares are horrible, but you mustn't let them stop you from sleeping - The nightmare's over and it wasn't real. I really hope you manage to get some more sleep. xxx

I was ready to open up - Maybe try to slip out of denial, just a little bit. But I just don't feel like I should. I don't have any right to whine.
*Crawls back into denial tent*

MammaMia 16-01-2010 06:32 AM

Hope you manage to get some sleep. I may crawl back into bed in about half an hour and try. But I feel so awake nwo >_> Did the instant I woke up. But laid in bed for a good 40 minutes before getting out and giving up.

You have every right to open up and you wouldn't be whinig!!!!!!! *cuddles tight*

Kahlia1981 16-01-2010 08:07 AM

ARWEN!!!! *limps up to you and cuddles you tightly* I've missed you too! I hope you manage to get some sleep hun. Thinking of you.

Helen: I hope you manage to get some more sleep ... sleep loss is a nasty business ... I should know, I have a massive sleep disorder. I hope that you can recognise that it was just a nightmare and can start feeling a bit better/more in control. *cuddles you tightly*

*hugs everyone*

My housemate hired me a pair of crutches for a week. Hopefully I won't need them that long, but if necessary the hire contract can be extended. I'll have a chat to my GP on Wednesday. It's going to make getting on the bus to go to physio at the hospital fun on tuesday. :(

I think I'm just going to curl up in the denial tent for awhile so I can pretend that everything is fine.

*sneaks into the denial tent*

*cuddles everyone*

april- i have a 4.0 overall. And i wish i was able to take abnormal pysch sooner as then i would have more time to take other psych classes that i want.. but iowa has all these prerequistes to that class its ridiculous.. o well, im looking forward to it.

Sorry everyone seems to be having a hard time sleeping. I'm off to try soon myself... its just about 2 am here. Although most of the time i cant sleep until almost morning.. at this point, idk if its becuase i cant sleep or im just on that schedule now.. guess it doesnt matter heh, this is very ranty.. sorry. Goodnight all.

Scarletdreamer 16-01-2010 12:15 PM

Aw Helen, I'm sorry that you woke up at 4am. :( I've woken up early like that before and it sucks... waking up at 12:45am is not fun either, especially when you don't get back to sleep until 9am and then only for an hour!! (I got up in between times and spent some time on WoW, journaling, etc...) Ugh. And yeh, remember, the nightmare's just a dream, a really bad one but still just a dream, it's not true. Hope you manage to sneak a few winks here and there today somehow!! *cuddles*

*hugs Arwen* Nice to meet you; I'm April. I think I've seen you around here once or so before? but I'm not sure. Sorry. :o

*cuddles Kahlia* I'm sorry that the crisis team and hos are so rubbish. :( You need help and I wish I could get it for you... Why would the hospital just send you straightaway back home? Don't they want to make sure that you'll be safe? Doesn't make any sense. :-/ To me, anyway... I hope that you feel better soon... keep going the way you've been, day by day, hour by hour, minute by minute at times. *more cuddles*

*cuddles Laura* Wow, a 4.0 overall is amazing!! I've got a 3.805 right now, it just dipped this past semester because even though I got good grades, some weren't A's and so, well, yeah. It's frustrating because I think subconsciously I'm still trying to compete with my sister (who graduated in 2006 at the top of her class of ~900, triple major and a 3.989 overall I think?). GAHHH, that still makes me annoyed... lol. I'm just not a genius like she is... but I guess I do have people skills? :-X which she can lack at times. I dunno. :(

Hope your sleep schedule gets straightened out a bit as uni starts... don't want you to be exhausted all of the time in your classes!! Oh, and what prereqs does Iowa have for abnormal psych? *hugs*

I'm doing okayish, I guess. Just got up a bit ago, had my meds as I was anxious, but am feeling pretty good. Today we'll probably start back up on our exercise routine and see how that goes. Or tomorrow, I don't know for sure. I'm looking forward to it, though... should be good. I want to lose weight soo badly... :( I'm so fat, or feel that way at least. :(

*cuddles for the lurkers*

Strawberry.Bananas 16-01-2010 01:35 PM

Heh, who'd have thought that after this long I could still be losing it? Losing the grip on reality that I never really had? Who'd have thought that I wish I could go back 10 years and start again? Well, tonight all of that is stopping. I'm going intoxicate myself with anything that I can find and ENJOY my night.

MammaMia 16-01-2010 02:19 PM

*cuddles everyone* Sorry we're all struggling so much right now.

I managed to finally fall back to sleep around 7am. I was texting one of my best friends (the one who's not been in hospital). Was good. Got mroe out of her via texts than I have for days. But it's not the same :'( I want her back now please?? She ironically was in my nightmare, nearly feeling as bad as she does today, but worse in the nightmare. *sighs* Got to be around people all day and night, pretending to be :) :) :) When inside I'm broken and crying my heart out. I'll be fine in a few weeks..

Vicki, *big cuddles*, please be careful??

Strawberry.Bananas 16-01-2010 04:34 PM

*Big hugs to Helen* Hope you're ok sweet. Not going to be online tonight but text me if you need x

Mmm...maybe. See how it goes...

SoMuchMore 16-01-2010 06:16 PM

*hugs kahlia* Hope that your ankle starts feeling better after u've been off it for awhile. Keep hanging in there.

*hugs april* we have to take 2 research method classes, clinical psych, bio psych, social psych, either cognitive psych or child psych, and a certain amount of semester hours completed before we can even think about taking abnormal psych, or any of the other more specific psych classes. It makes sense i guess though as they say that is a harder psych class. That sucks that u think u compete with your sister.. It sounds like you are very smart all on ur own :-)

*cuddles helen* glad that your friend wasnt like she was in your nightmare. Pretending to be happy is so hard sometimes...

*hugs vicki* hope you are okay.

Busy day planned. Hopefully is stays busy. I hate when plans get cancelled.

Scarletdreamer 16-01-2010 06:58 PM

*hugs Vicki* Please be careful, love... I often wish I could go back in time and correct my mistakes, or kill myself instead of having to live through the years of pain, or just somehow do things differently, grow up differently. But we can't do that. Please try to take care of yourself... enjoy yourself but don't do anything dangerous. Please... *more hugs*

*huggles Helen* I'm glad that you got back to sleep, and also got to text with your friend. It's good that she's not doing as badly as she was in your nightmare... see... nightmares are just that - nightmares, scary yes, but not real. *holds you gently* I agree, it is difficult to pretend to be happy when you're not, but as soon as you get home you can collapse and be the "real you" ... please don't give up, sweetie. ♥

*cuddles Laura* How're you doing today? Busy is good, I guess - keeps you occupied, as long as you don't feel like you have to put on a happy face the entire time. And that's a LOT of prereqs!!! I feel so inadequate in my field as I have only taken the minimum psych classes required, even though others would be interesting to take. I've just taken other classes, I guess, I dunno. I really don't. It's confusing. :( I wish I had taken child and/or adolescent psych, psych of stress management (God knows I need that!!), death & dying (depressing, heh), etc., etc... so many classes!! But I do have the core classes down that I need, which is good... just if I can only remember the counseling tips that I will need once I start counseling!! :-X Anyway... hope your day goes well and that nothing gets cancelled. What all are you up to? *more cuddles*

I'm doing okay. :) Really tired but it's been a busy morning... played WoW for awhile then went to a little diner-type restaurant for breakfast - first real food since Tuesday!! - and I feel just fine afterwards, too. :D Then we went to Walmart where I got some new clothes (they actually look nice too :-X kind of, fatty that I am) for interviews/my internship/dressy occasions/etc., and also picked up some weights there for our workout regimen. Woohoo. After that we did laundry, dropped off a phone that we found in our apartment's parking lot for a guy at a restaurant (complicated story, lol), and came home. :)

So it's been a busy day. I'm listening to Evanescence now and will probably put away clothes soon... don't feel super great in my head (white noise still) but moodwise I am not too low - if that makes any sense at all. I really struggled not to purge this morning as I knew it would be REALLY easy with all of the food that I ate... how I HATE myself!! :(

MammaMia 16-01-2010 11:23 PM

Can I die now?

Scarletdreamer 17-01-2010 12:23 AM

NO. What's going on, Helen? Talk to us!! *holds you gently*

I feel like ****. My NP just said that the "white noise" might be pseudohallucinations - not that they aren't real, just that they are in my head versus being audible - I guess?

I want to die, too. I am so sick of this life. And I am NOT READY FOR UNI TO START!!!!!! *cries*

SoMuchMore 17-01-2010 01:10 AM

*cuddles helen and april* please try to hang in there. You guys are both great.

Went to the store and got a few books and whatnot, then hung out with my boyfriend for a bit, tonight im going over to a friends for grasshoppers (the drink.. not the bug haha) and hopefully avoiding the drama that is bound to ensue from there..
Busy is good... Yes i do have to put on a mask... but im so used to it that sometimes i can even trick myself into thinking that im okay... It only lasts a few seconds, but it feels supremely fake and real all at the same time. (I could be talking nonsense here, i just had a lot of coffee and im typing a million miles per hour it seems)

MammaMia 17-01-2010 01:28 AM

*crawls into denial tent and falsl asleep*

I've been so hyper tonight. Crashing. Whats the point?

Kahlia1981 17-01-2010 02:25 AM

*cuddles everyone*

I just want to disappear ... I don't want to be around any more. :(

*disappears into a dark corner with bear and a blanket*

SoMuchMore 17-01-2010 07:23 AM

why the hell did i think it would be okay if i said yes to going swimming tomorrow.. it will be nice to work out but.... omg im freaking out.

Scarletdreamer 17-01-2010 12:36 PM

*cuddles Laura* What drama with your friends, love? Doesn't sound very fun, that's for sure... hope you're feeling a bit better this morning. Why are you freaking out about going swimming? scars? *gentle hugs* I'm sure that you'll be fine once you get in the water - just focus on the workout potential - but don't overdo it, of course. :) Oh, and you did make sense, about the mask. I understand... I feel like I have a mask up a lot yet it feels real too... I don't know. It doesn't make a lot of sense to me but I guess you understand!! lol.

*snuggles Kahlia* I'm so sorry you feel so bad... is there anything we can do to help?

*huggles Helen* Are you bipolar? Just wondering, as you've mentioned being hyper and then crashing... I am NOT diagnosing you nor can I - disclaimer that I have to give whenever I ask anything like that, lol - but it just sounds a bit off for "normal" behavior, I dunno. Hopefully that didn't come out offensive - I just got up so my mind's still muzzy. How you doing this morning?

*sends cuddles out for anyone else that's hovering around*

I'm doing alright. Probably will be going to church today & then if the weather is warm enough, perhaps target shooting with my dad and husband after church. Should be fun... haven't gotten to shoot my pistol in quite awhile. :) Am feeling better from the stomach bug but am still frustrated with my NP. Grrrrr.

Oh well.


MammaMia 17-01-2010 03:53 PM

Laura, I'm guessing you're freaking out because of cuts(?)/scars??? *cuddles* I know how you feel about that one. It'll be okay once you're in the water, if you decide to do it :) I promise. You will probably feel like everyone's staring at you, but I promise they're not.

April, no, I haven't been dignoised with anything. Everyone I've seen, in crisis or not, all think I'm 'fineeee' :) It's ****ing ridiclous. I feel really hyper again this afternoon, god knows why, I'm so ridiclously tired, bit low and sore (I banged my head last night when I passed out) >_> Have fun today though, well I hope you do :)

SoMuchMore 17-01-2010 06:43 PM

*hugs april* glad ur feeling better, and i hope that you have fun going shooting.

The drama is with 2 of my friends that are roommates.. one feels like the other is replacing her in her original friend group (aka, my main friend group)... and so shes very upset, and while i understand where she is coming from, i also kinda have the mindset that is like, why cant we all be friends?... so there is a lot of competition between the 2 when they are together and then I get one side of the story and other ppl get the other roommates side.. and it just gets ridiculous. Stupid drama... i try to stay away from lol.

*hugs helen* aw ur poor nan. I hope that she goes for her walk so that she can get better. Sorry ur so tired.

Yes i am freaking out about cuts... scars im okay-ish with... but since i recently just relapsed there are newer cuts. I know ppl probably wont notice.. but its hard to not be self conscious. Im sure ill be fine once im actually in the water.

MammaMia 17-01-2010 06:49 PM

*cuddles everyone tight*

Scarletdreamer 17-01-2010 07:55 PM

*cuddles Helen* Hope your nan gets her walk too, as it will help her heal faster. Is it difficult seeing her like this? It must be... *gentle hugs for all of the stuff you're going through*

*cuddles Laura* Yeh, I think you'll be fine once you're in the water. Just make sure the newer cuts are well taken care of, but you know that... and maybe put some more antibiotic etc. on them after swimming? because even chlorinated pools can have bacteria that live in them. I don't blame you for being self-conscious but I am pretty sure that no one would notice. If you don't mind me asking (and it's okay if you do, no offense taken), where do you cut? *more cuddles*

Can't go shooting today as it's raining. :( Boo hiss. I was kind of looking forward to that, even though I feel shitty and really full right now. I'm struggling with my parents... I posted awhile ago in the ED forum about this, but I'll post about it here too - my mum has an ED and eats barely anything yet expects me to eat so much more than she does. It's really, really triggering to see her nibble at her food and then have her expect me to eat as much as Jarrod (hubby) does!!

Also... I need to tell my parents about the sexual abuse in high school... but I don't know when, or how, or how to go about doing this. Should I post a thread about this in abuse/bullying?


MammaMia 17-01-2010 08:12 PM

It's not so difficult now as she's getting much better :) But it has been increadibly difficult :'( She walked with my mum this morning =D

Also April, maybe write it out and show your parents? *cuddles* Maybe seeking support from A&B will help, they're fablous :)

MammaMia 17-01-2010 09:04 PM

It's too hard tonight :'(

Scarletdreamer 17-01-2010 09:51 PM

*cuddles Helen* What's too hard tonight, sweetie?

Yeh, I think I will post in A&B, they are good there although I tend not to get a ton of replies as I don't post tons there. I do some, in a few threads, but as I haven't had a ton of experience with A&B stuff, I don't always know the right sort of things to say. Plus, it can trigger flashbacks if I'm not careful. :(

I'm really not feeling well... don't feel like typing it all out here but there's a lot going on in my head... I'll try to post in my venting spot in a bit but that's not much good, is it? :-X


MammaMia 17-01-2010 10:13 PM

Well if you do post, be careful *squishes* Or you could post about it in vets??

Sorry you're not feeling too good, but posting in your venting thread is always good to do too.

Everything's too hard :/

Scarletdreamer 17-01-2010 10:37 PM

It feels like everything is too hard for me too. I posted in A&B... not sure how many responses I'll get.

So much going on in my head right now, it feels like a whirlpool.

Don't know what to do to get my mind off it. I feel like I'm drowning.

MammaMia 17-01-2010 11:05 PM

*cuddles you right*

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 01:08 AM

*cuddles back*

Just got told off by someone that I care about... it ****ing hurt... she didn't mean it to be harsh but said that she "doesn't believe in sugar coating things." It was about giving up etc. Said I can't, that there are lots of people out there with problems like mine but the difference between them & me is that they have taken responsibility over their actions and not given in to blah blah blah.


Jetforce 18-01-2010 02:45 PM

*cuddles all*

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 03:00 PM

*cuddles Jet* How you doing today?

*hides in dark corner for the rest of forever & ever*

MammaMia 18-01-2010 03:49 PM

*cuddles Jem and April*

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 04:07 PM

*cuddles Helen* How're you, love? feeling any better? how're your friends?

Just had a shithole of a session with my therapist. It was over the phone and only half an hour (okay, 20 minutes) instead of the expected 45-50 minutes. UGH. It really was useless. We didn't talk about telling my parents about the sexual abuse, we didn't talk about the bulimia, we didn't talk about much of ANYTHING.


MammaMia 18-01-2010 05:10 PM

Could maybe email her or ring her again?? :( *cuddles tight*

I think I'm still feeling ****. Deep down I know I'm having a very bad day, I didn't get out of bed til nearly 3pm :/

My best friend G, who was in hospital, is doing okay physically apart from her hip etc. Mentally, not so good. Nearly phoned an ambulance on her last night but thankfully she got in touch again and we had a chat and stuff. Her daughter's not very well today, poor love :(

My other best friend J, she seems to be doing good again today like yesterday =) It's 5 weeks now until I get to see her yay =D

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 07:41 PM

Aw Helen, I wish that I could make your day go better. At least your friends are doing okay... what happened with G's hip? Hopefully she'll mend quickly, both physically & emotionally/mentally... although I know that physical healing generally comes more quickly than mental/emotional. I will keep you all in my prayers. *cuddles*

I'm so tired... it's been a kinda busy day. My sister and I went to Walmart where I overspent... just a little but still, I hate it when I do that. I feel so out of control then, but oh well... :(


So I kinda feel like ****. Plus I had the chance to go to the gym and turned it down... probably should've gone but didn't want to, stupid me. Instead I'm going to do the workout that Vince told us... but I am scared that I am going to be rubbish at it... and blah blah blah, who cares... whatever.


SoMuchMore 18-01-2010 07:44 PM

*cuddles april, helen, and jet* how r u guys?

april - i wouldnt worry too much about what ur friend said to u. She cant understand your exact situation and everyone is different. Sorry that you had a bad therapy session. Maybe you could write it out for her like helen suggested.

helen - glad to hear that your friends are at least ok. Sorry you are having a bad day.

Swimming went okay-ish yesterday. I had a lot of anxiety, but i dont think anyone noticed, except maybe one of my friends.. who kept throwing me disapproving looks but didnt say anything to me. April, to answer your question, i usually cut on arms or legs, depending on my mood. It was my leg this time, i guess i shouldve thought it thru better... but i figured that it was january.. so swimming didnt cross my mind.
School starts again tomorrow. Im nervous, but i always am nervous at the beginning of semesters.

MammaMia 18-01-2010 08:18 PM

*cuddles both*

April, to answer your question, she had hip sugury and popped it out again last week :( I think it'll take her a very long time to heal, she's rather ill really :( But I still love her to death, though she can't understand why :( I'm sure you'll be good at the workout.

Laura, good luck with the new semster :) Understandabel to be nevrous and glad the swimming went okay.

I'm really really upset about few things, oh well >_> Not like anyone freaking cares anymore.

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 08:24 PM

*squishes Laura* Glad that swimming went okay. I cut on my arms, which is probably not the wisest thing to do as my arms are covered in very visible scars... and I have an internship this summer to do. :-X I'll probably be working with psychiatrically disturbed patients and I'm not sure what the staff will think about having an intern who is also psychiatrically disturbed. Urf.

It's understandable, as Helen said, to be nervous about a new semester. God knows I am... I am not ready at all... it doesn't feel like it's actually going to start, you know? I'm sure once I get started on it, it won't be bad, but the starting is always the worst part. >_< I hope you enjoy your classes - and I hope that I do too!! Last semester was an epic fail in terms of enjoyment. Yuck. I hated my courses so much.

*cuddles Helen* We care here about what's going on in your head & life, love. Please remember that. You can always PM me about stuff... I am a good listener & can be a good support, and once in awhile can come up with some good advice. Heh.

I'm sorry to hear about your friend's hip... that had to hurt like hell.

What's upsetting you? *holds you gently*

Just did part of my workout & it was pretty fantabulous. Just the arms and some squats, but it got me warm & my heart pumping, which was what I was aiming for. Woohoo. Only about 20 minutes of exercise, but it is better than nothing & pretty good for someone who's just been ill for almost a week. :)

I'm really upset about that friend still... :(

SoMuchMore 18-01-2010 08:29 PM

*hugs april* you could always just wear longer sleeves to your internship. If ur psych problems dont affect ur work i dont see why they would have a problem. And i hope that the new semester is better for u! I agree though, starting is the worst. In fact, i think the first day of classes is painful, but after that it usually gets better. Glad your workout went good.

*cuddles helen* i agree with what april said, we care here. You can always talk to us.

Scarletdreamer 18-01-2010 08:32 PM

*hugs Laura* Thing is, I don't know if my psych problems will get in the way of work... I hope not, but I am scared that I will get triggered, or the patients/clients will try & push my buttons to make me upset, or I'll go psychotic or suicidal and have to be hospitalized myself. :( I really don't know. It's scary. Sometimes I wish I had been in a different major but I love psychology so much I wouldn't switch for the world. :) It's so fascinating and plus, I know I will have the chance to change people's worlds. THAT will be uber awesome... if only I can get myself stable enough to help other people first. :-X

How's your day been? :)

MammaMia 18-01-2010 09:08 PM

A couple of nights ago I had two of my friends around. We shall call them H & K. Orginally it was just going to be me & H as we had a few things planned for the day and the evening. We ended up not going to the cinema, but went ahead with the takeaway/alcohol bit. She invites K, which I was half happy/half not happy about. Selfishly wanted her to myself.

They both didn't even arrive and over 30 minutes later, I met them at the chinese place, which was fine, apart from the pouring rain and their whinging about getting a ****ing taxi when they only had like 10 more minutes to walk. Spent most of the evening making comments, more H than K, as she knows more. That upset me. Less than two hours later, they've gone!!!

Since then, apart from the rest of that evening, both are pretty much ignoring me. I should be seeing H on Wednesday and now I'm scared I'll end up rowing with her. I've known her since we were 11 and started at same school :( Now nearly 20!! We've only ever had one row and that was just epic tiredenss and emotions running really highly.

I'm being pathetic. Feels like nobody gives a **** somtimes. It's fine. Not like I'm really strugglign at the moment.

Yeah, it probably did hurt her, but when she popped it out, she wasn't exactly concious..

risenfromperdition 18-01-2010 09:35 PM

wow thats a lot of prereq's for ab psych laura o.O here you just need intro i think haha. what year are you?

*hugs april* yeah, i understand why u are afraid. I had a research assistant position last semester and we did interviews with psychiatric patients and i was always scared i would get triggered, or i would somehow trigger something in them. I just tried to keep covered and if i was having a bad day, i just pretended i was fine (i know thats prolly bad advice.. but idk what else ur supposed to do in the work place...) It is hard though.

*hugs helen* im sorry about the situation with your friends. Its understandable that you are upset about it. I hope u guys dont wind up arguing or anything. If u want to talk to her about it, maybe just try to calmly explain why u are upset. Maybe it'll be a better convo then u think it might be... u never know right?

Horseridinbbe - Im a junior. Only 1 1/2 semesters left until the real world! ahh! :-P
What year r u?

*huggles Helen* I'm sorry to hear about the issues with your friends. That must be really tough. Are they close friends? Also, as Laura said, maybe explain why you are upset to H... it may not be taken as poorly as you think it will. Try to be calm & reasonable - I know that you can, as you're not a flighty person. It will be hard but I think you can do it. And one question you don't have to answer if you don't want to - comments about what? (I may be being dense, & if I am, I'm sorry :-X)

*hugs Laura* Yeah, I guess that advice does work for the workplace. I don't know really what else you are supposed to do. I guess if you really can't handle whatever is happening, talk to your boss - if s/he is understanding. Otherwise, I guess just suck it up? I really don't know. I should probably talk to someone who knows about this... like my advisor or a prof or something. Hmmm. And I do agree with Heather (right?) that that is an awful lot of prereqs for abnormal psych!! :)

I'm a senior... 6th year senior to be exact... ugh. But this is my last term taking classes, then - as I said - my internship this summer, then I'll graduate in December. Woohoo!! April will enter the real world sometime soon... :) Heh. Not sure I'm ready for it, or if it's ready for me... guess we'll see.

Feel like ****. But what's new... :-X
