    You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.

    Everyone keeps telling me they're going to make me one - and that they're not going to let me delete it and why would I even want to delete it?? Um, because, honestly, it hurt me and when I'm just starting to feel better and I'm just about clearing this hurdle I don't want to be back at square one. I know I can control what I see on it but I'm happier just not knowing and not being part of it.

    Idk. I just don't know. I can't wait for my counselling to start just so I can talk everything out with somebody.
    If they don't respond to your kind requests then tell them to leave it the f**k alone.

    I dunno, if they're not being nice to you then don't be nice back. Simple.

    And as above, they can't force you to use it...

    Took me years to realise it, don't worry!

    I've just got to the point where I don't take any shit now. If someone is nasty to me or messes me about then they're either out of my life or I will tolerate them from a distance of my choosing.

    This made me chuckle,.. it's exactly how I am now Sometimes toleration is needed for the sake of larger friendships and social gatherings, but that's where it stops.

    With me it really has gone back to basics,.. treat others how you would like/expect to be treated. If they're being utter shits to me I refuse to stoop to their level and just cut them out! Been working really well

    I'd rather have very few friends than horrible ones that only think about themselves.

    Agreed for the sake of a very few people in my life I will tolerate them but it doesn't mean by any stretch of the imagination that I like them.

    I have 1 local friend who I have time for but wouldn't put my life/plans on hold for but she's nice enough and that's it. All my others are LD or online.

    I wrote down everything that I was feeling and also had a really big heart to heart with my best friend.

    We kinda came to the conclusion that this isn't normal. This isn't even good anymore >.<

    I've been kind of having a melt down the past couple of weeks (as some of my posts may have demonstrated), and today I kind of admitted it and have been to the doctors. She was really good. Switched my medication a bit, had a good talk. But she has signed me off work and I'm not 100% how I feel on that. I have Uni and stuff still, but I work 30+ hours a week too. How do I go from that to not working? Isn't that worse for my mental health?? I know I need a break from it but I'm scared out my skin, my problem has been made worse by work, but not going for a whole 4 weeks??

    I think I need a plan, I'm going to try and up the gym (I go 3 times a week right now) to give me a bit more purpose. But other than that I'm not sure.. Study yeah. Finish the bathroom tiling like I have been trying to do for 6 months..?


    Now
