Hello Julie,

Try not to cancel your appointment with your cm.

I know when you feel you want to hide from the world you may also want to hide from people who can help but I think would make it worse.

Maybe talking things through will help you to cope.

Try to go on Friday if you can. Maybe tell your friends how you feel and then if you need to leave at any point they can make sure you get home safely.

Hello!
I feel pretty rough today. I woke up feeling ok, but it's gone a bit downhill.
I woke up feeling...different - like things could really change.
But i'm seeing i'm very stuck mentally and feel rather insecure. I know it's not doing me good to be bumming around at home today on my own with things ahead all looking scary. Why can't things ahead look a bit more welcoming?

I relate to what you are sharing Julie - not so much that i am focusing on my size, but i do feel like i need to hide myself. And yet the more i do the more i seem to feel that pain of being alone. It just builds : the worry, the feelings of being alone, the inadequacy, remembering things i (or even someone else) have said and done in the past - like finding things at any stage during my life to bruise myself with. And bringing it all into the present - like i'll never be good for anything. Like it's all over for me. Terribly downward spiraling thinking that serves me NOT ONE JOT!

I don't want to go into too many details of my life here. I just feel a bit too exposed today. BUt i don't want to deny the truth of my experience either. And the truth is i basically feel UGH and must do what i can to take care of myself.

The sun is shining! Maybe i should get out there. But the wind is cold. Hmmmn. Must wrap up warm i guess. And stay safe. Whatever that means. Stop thinking so much perhaps. Deep breaths. Drink some water. Refresh a bit.

Love Alia

PS And just to add that i too cancelled a couple of things i had in the diary and feel really crap about that. Missing things stings a bit doesn't it. It's like being damned if i do and damned if i don't.

I try and recall that phrase "Better regret the things you have done than the things you haven't done." Life's for living! And anyone worth their salt will give us room to be fallible and human. Just why is it that the one friend i have that always has the door open for me do i not go to see? And why do i not encourage them to come see me? What on earth is WRONG with me?!!! What am i waiting for? Some kight in shining armour to break down my door? Well, not until i've cleared up this flat! Maybe that's my job for the rest of the afternoon!

Hello Alia,

I get how your feeling completely. Particularly with the beating yourself up with the past. When you feel good it's just the past but when you feel bad it's evidence of how bad and worthless you are, how horrible people and the world are and how it will never get better.

I have come to the conclusion for my own sanity that it is part of the mental illness. Part of the destructive thought process that comes with it. I guess we can just be aware of it as being part of the illness rather than being a truth.

Try and get out even if it is just for a walk. Watch a nice film. Allow yourself some distraction and relaxation.

I can also associate with not letting people in that leave an open door in their lives for us. It doesn't have to be all or nothing. Maybe just a coffee every so often. It's hard but it's always in your control to just do what feels comfortable to you.

Be extra kind to yourself while you feel vulnerable.

Hi Julie,

Do you go to art alone? Is there someone you can get to go with you to the next session? Your cm perhaps?

Are you managing to leave the house apart from for going to art?

Try and get out and beak your day up with some distractions. Maybe go out with friends or family. People you feel safe with.

You can move past feeling like this.

Hi Patch,

That is alot to be dealing with and I'm not suprised it's affecting your eating.

Are you getting any support?

Maybe it would really help now to have that eating plan? You can't do anything about some of the things going on around you but you can look after yourself no matter what is going on. I know it's hard. It has taken me years to not let things going on around me effcet my eating but it can be done.

Keep talking here if it helps.

Hi Julie,

How are you feeling this morning?

Has your CM offered you any extra help with getting to art next week or any extra support generally?

Hello Julie,

I'm sorry to hear that.

Try and be extra kind to yourself this evening. Have a nice bubble bath, face mask, dvd. Anything that makes you feel good or smile.

Do you feel better about going to art? If you need more support then can you ask your CM? Remember it's okay to ask for what you need.

Take care of yourself tonight.

Hello Patch,

Are you really okay? It sounds like you aren't really.

Does your uni have a general counselling service? Most are self referal and I think you could really benefit from talking to a professional.

I know things are bad at the moment but theycan get better if you take the right steps.

Be kind to yourself.

Hello Julie,

I'm glad she was helpful yesterday.

I think ringing on Monday is a very good idea.

In the mean time try and look after yourself and be as kind to yourself as you can.

Hello Julie,

Well done!

I know you were glad to get in to the house but I'm sure it must have done you some good and you should be really proud of yourself for getting out.

Well done. happy

Hello Patch,

There's no need to say sorry.

Have you told anyone you have cut?

I think it's really important to get some support right now Patch.

Things are tough at the moment but they can get better.

Can you make some little plans to help combat the depression? Like having a nice walk everyday after uni. Getting some dvds out and chilling out in your pj's watching them. Anything that makes you smile and helps you to do some positive things for yourself.
