*hugs april, mark, lindsay, helen, oliver, RYUU, jill, kahlia, heather, taz, crimson, sarah, felicia, and everyone else*

Sorry, can't handle individuals right now. Am thinking of you all. You are all awesome people. Don't forget that.

I'm am just done for the day. you know? like finished, emotionally spent. Yet I still have to meet for a group project and then go to work tonight... so I don't get to have time to be emotionally spent.

frenchhorn 16-09-2010 10:40 PM

Sleep well Mark
*hugs April* how are you?
*hugs laura* that sucks when you just want some time, but you have to do lots, hope your group and work goes well.

Just to say the walk myself and my friend are doing, we are now raising money just for charity, two charities the gender trust, a support and info based charity for trans people and the MS society, close to my heart because my mum has MS.

*hugs all who can accept*

Got a lecturer next year for 2 out of 6 modules and he's a douche. So I'm pretty angry. No recourse either because he's head of department. Grr! He angers me so much, treats everyone like they're 5, and he wonders why he gets over 1000 spam emails a day...

Kahlia1981 17-09-2010 12:32 AM

*hugs Laura* - I hope the group and work go well though I'm sorry to hear you are feeling spent. I hope you manage to get a bit of "me" time at some point as you sound like you've been working yourself pretty hard lately.

Oliver - That charity walk sounds great! I'm glad you managed to find two charities so close to your heart. It must feel good to be able to do something towards them. I felt a bit like I was doing something when I used to participate in the "40 hour Famine". I wish you and your friend the best of luck. *offers hugs*

*hugs Sarah* - That situation with the lecturer sounds frustrating and I can understand why you are angry about it. Sadly though it doesn't change anything. Is there anything you can do - for those modules - to make the situation more survivable?

Sorry for just doing individuals from this page, I kept getting myself confused and decided that it would mean the least people getting accidentally left out or mixed up. I am thinking of you all however.

*Hugs April*

*Hugs Laura*I hope last night went okay for you .

*Hugs Oliver* It is so grat you are doing stuff for charitys you care about:)

*Hugs Sarah*I'm sorry you have a tutor who you don't like :(

*Hugs Kahlia*

I just about managed to pull myself out of bed late this morning , Depression and the Numbing effects of meds make it hard to get up some days . Anyway, now I'm up . I hope everyone is doing okay .

Scarletdreamer 17-09-2010 12:19 PM

Goodness, it's been a bit quiet...

*cuddles all*

Once again, no individuals... damn it, am I just getting lazy? :'( I do want to reply to you guys but I just have no "energy"... yet I have "energy" to blather on and on about myself? UGH. :'(

Anyway. Jarrod's got his job stuff sorted and will be going back to work on Monday. So that's a good thing. No backpay though, which kind of bites - 3 weeks (+3 months of furlough) where we basically got no money at all (well, the 3 months we got unemployment, so that was something at least, but these past 3 weeks we've gotten nothing at all :-S). But... no more worries 'cause he's back at work soon. WHEW!!! He's on a LCA (last chance agreement) which means that if he's caught doing whatever safety gaffe they thought he was doing before (he wasn't, it was the other guy involved that was doing the stuff wrong) or doing ANYTHING badly safety-wise then he's going to be "terminated" (i.e., fired). BLAH. So he's going to be damned careful... :-/ I'm a little scared about the LCA as it really is bullshit but oh well... he said he accepted it because he just wanted to get back to work. Makes sense I guess... but still, bullshit.


That's all of my news, really. Except I found out when my training for my job will be, so you can expect me to be scarce about here from 11-15 October and 25-29 October. Blah. I don't really want to go but at the same time I do... and I'm also rather quite terrified about the whole ordeal. I have no idea if I'm the one that's supposed to see about getting a room at the hotel we'll be staying at, or if the place I'm working for will see to that... no idea who's paying for it... no idea what I'm supposed to wear, even. I have basically been given NO DETAILS. All I know is when and where it is, and what hotel they THINK I will be staying in. :( But at least I know that much.

Okay, I'll shut up now. :-/

Doikers 17-09-2010 12:23 PM

*Hugs April* I'm glad Jarrod got his job again but it sucks that he is on a LCA.
I hope your training goes well , can you ring them up and find out about the hotel stuff?

shadowedsoul 17-09-2010 12:34 PM

Cuddles aLl erm keep having panic attacks today, and can't seam to calm myself down. That and muppets drivers that drive to fast and don't look were there going. So erm yeah having a great day so far. Woohoo

Kahlia1981 17-09-2010 01:34 PM

*cuddles all who can accept && waves at everyone else*

*huggles Mark* - How are you going? Are you doing any better after struggling to get out of bed?

*gently hugs April* - Sorry to hear about Jarrod and the LCA. I hope things go well. I also hope your training goes well. Like Mark asked, can you phone and ask about the details? Don't fash (stress) yourself about not having the energy to do individual replies hun there's a lot of people and the ward can move fast at times. Just please keep writing and keeping us in the know.

*glomps Jill* - Sorry to hear you are having panic attacks, and dealing with crazy drivers is never fun. I hope that your day improves. *crosses fingers*

*sigh* It's been a long day and my brain doesn't think it's over yet. I had a GP visit that went well and several other things and I'm still alive and functioning. My psychiatrist is in for a shock when I see him next though ... I'm going to tell him that he's going to take me off a medication. Our goal was to reduce my medication and instead we've increased it. Really not happy. And since he wrote to me GP that my entire mental state is completely "in remission" he shouldn't mind. Meh. Depressed and suicidal but in remission.

risenfromperdition 17-09-2010 01:46 PM

you's not lazy april <3
*hugs everyone that wants*
will be back later... class til 11:50

funny story of how tired i am... i got coffee from starbucks... aaaand almost left when i got my change without remembering to wait for the drink til i got to the door >.>

Doikers 17-09-2010 02:11 PM

*Hugs Kahlia* I'm glad your GP appoinment went well and that you are still alive and functioning . Are you going to go onto a different med after you stop this one , be careful coming off it , Pysch meds have withdrawel symtoms sometimes , don't just stop cold turkey , let your pdoc taper it off for you I reckon.

*Hugs Heather* Heh glad you got your coffee in the end :) I've Never ever been in a Starbucks.

I tried to nap but just lay there all awake and thinking for an hour :(

life-hurts 17-09-2010 02:44 PM


I was just wondering if I could check in for a little while. I'm going through a rough patch at the moment and not always feeling very safe. Although I've turned down the day hospital locally an online version seems a bit more comfortable.

I'm new to the forums generally so none of you know much about me. I've written a short bit on the intro board but just to summarise that, I've self injured since I was 20, I stopped for several years and then started again earlier this year. I have been feeling very suicidal but that seems to be getting better, the medication seems to be helping with that. However it does seem that as the suicidal thoughts become more under control the self harm thought seem to take over. Last week I took an overdose (not trying to kill myself) and I'm not even sure why.

Well that's enough about me. A big hello to you all. I hope I can be of help to others on here, as much as I think that this will be of help to me.

Doikers 17-09-2010 02:54 PM

Hi Life-hurts , welcome to the ward , I'm Mark :) I'll just pop along to the intros board and read your post :)

misskitty112 17-09-2010 03:47 PM

Hi Life-hurts! I'm Felicia. :)

I hope everyone's better than I am. I don't see how I'm going to ever make it out of this depressed stage. *sigh*

Doikers 17-09-2010 03:57 PM

*Hugs Felicia* You will absolutley get out of this depressed stage , It will happen , meds may help if you are on them but if you're not on meds that doesn't mean your mood won't lift . My nurse expained it to me as people with depression have peaks and troughs in their mood and it sounds to me that you are in a trough but you will get a peak soon , sometimes ( Speaking from personal experiance) my mood just platues(Sp?) , It won't always be this crap :)

misskitty112 17-09-2010 04:10 PM

Thanks. I'm just getting really sick of being so down that I don't care about anything.
I did go to an interest meeting for the local sorority last night. It was cool. I still miss being in a national, though, which makes me worse cause I can't go on facebook without seeing some Delta Zeta bragging about how they love their new sisters. We see how much they loved me, right? Mhm. It's rather painful.

Doikers 17-09-2010 04:16 PM

Hmmm could you delete those Delta Zeta's from your facebook account? You don't need that shoved in your face as soon as you log on :S

shadowedsoul 17-09-2010 04:35 PM

Aaaaaaaaaaargh!!!!!!!, curls up hits head on wall.
