    I'm starting to scare myself again...
    You sort of start thinking anything's possible if you've got enough nerve.

    Recently every single person in my life I care about, every friend, family member, boyfriend, flatmates are feeling miserable and depressed and having problems and I'm kind of having trouble coping. On top of my own mental issues, I'm worrying about everyone else. I feel pretty helpless and weak. Best friend's mom has cancer, roommate's grandmother is pretty much dying. No idea how to act.
    Oh and my flatmate was physically attacked the other day since we obviously live in a ghetto and I don't feel safe anywhere.
    The BF is pretty depressed and I'm just so paranoid and keep calling him all the time to make sure he's alive. He says I'm overreacting but yeah...can't help it.
    I have nightmares.

    I just needed to say that to someone as I don't really want to make things worse for other people around...The bad things just keep piling up these days and I just don't understand anything. I missed 2 days of uni just to stay at home. Oh and I haven't visited my parents in months since I get even more depressed there. Probably really selfish of me.


    Right now I'm alone at home since everybody went to their parents for the weekend and I'm supposed to go to my boyfriend's gig and I'm supposed to have a good time but I only feel a horrible void. Probably best not to drink at all today so I don't make things even worse in my head. No idea how I'll get there since I'm afraid of going out alone at night.
    And my cat is missing, probably died since he's already chronically ill.


    I can't even cry anymore, I wish I could.
    Ugh

    Sorry for the rant, I just can't complain anywhere else.
    It's gonna pass eventually...it's like a mass of negative energy everywhere.
    Strange how you can sit around with a group of people, in silence, acknowlege the miserableness and just...laugh about it. At least nobody feels alone in it?

    I'm attempting to book myself in for a doctors appointment tomorrow morning.

    I'm not healthy, I went to bed at about 8 am today to get up at 12.30 and I feel rested, and I had to be talked down from buying a lawnmower (I don't even have a lawn o.O) when I went to Tesco at 4am... and I bought Mario Kart 7 on a whim, knowing I couldn't strictly afford it. And I've barely been eating either. But I don't feel hungry at all (though I am slightly ill with a cold so that might explain it)

    I was talking to one of my friends at uni and he's got cyclothymia/mild bipolar and he reckons that I could have something similar, especially as our patterns of behaviour are really similar and if that was true it'd explain a LOT.

    Basically, I'm going to the doctors because I'm a little bit scared that I might be making the decision to switch universities while not in the best frame of mind (although I do think changing would be worth it) and if that's the case, I want to do a damage limitation job before this gets irreversible =/

    I feel like I'm close to breaking point. I don't really know how to deal with my friends illness anymore, I'm trying to prepare myself that she probably won't be around much longer but that seems to be conflicting with what her family believe. And my brother has relapsed again and is threatening suicide and he's not even in the same city right now, I just feel so helpless :(
