    I think I've got a clear idea of what the NHS are trying to do - they cover up all the lies they say and class me as untreatable, so they mold my situation and try and say it's a personality disorder, say it's a part of me and there's no treatment so I can be discharged. They also like to say that I'm refusing all treatment (antidepressants and a breathing exercises worksheet) and so I think they think I'm just too much work

    Omg this reminds me of when my CAMHS worker kept telling me that the way I felt was normal and maybe that was just ‘how I am’. The NHS is such a mess 😭

    Just wanted to say for all those who are ill right now, I'm really sorry and I hope you feel better very soon!

    And those who aren't ill, spend this day being grateful that you're feeling good! :) because we don't usually appreciate or notice how good we have it when we're not ill.

    Sending you all hugs @River, @AnonymousToe, @JJLemon18 and @IainJammyboy. You have all done so well to reach out to us and continue sharing how you are feeling with us.

    @River are you able to spend any time with your friend? You deserve support too.

    @AnonymousToe how are you feeling today? hope you managed to find some company and feel a little less lonely. We are all here with you.

    @JJLemon18 would you like to share a little more with us about what has been going on for you? It sounds like you have been going through a really difficult time. However, it is positive that you can acknowledge how difficult it has been for you recently. Is there anything which might help at the moment?

    @IainJammyboy - as you say, you have clearly needed more support which has unfortunately not been available to you (even though you absolutely deserve all the support). Please be kind to yourself and know we are really proud of you for keeping going when it is really tough and glad you are happy today :)

    Anxiety out of control for literally no reason. Could be worse I suppose

    Hearing that quite a few of you are going through a lot right now. You're doing so well to get through each day, and I hope that this space helps you to have an outlet for your feelings, because they are valid <3

    @IainJammyboy I can hear how that could be a difficult situation to be in. Have you considered speaking to your tutor, head of year, or a lecturer you feel you can talk to? Having a chat with them would give you some space to talk about this. You won't be the first person to be in this situation - they see several students in the same boat - and they'll be in a good place to support you. Is there something support-wise you'd like from uni staff that could help?

    @AnonymousToe how do you feel today? I can hear that it can be frustrating to go through this experience when there's no clear reason as to why it happens. We're here to listen to you <3

    @River how do you feel with the mentor as a point of support for you?

    I always struggle the most right after I’ve told my main support person that I’m ok. So then I feel like I’m lying to her and I’m all alone. Does anyone else get this?

    I’m so lonely but I’m too numb to cry. I don’t even know why I feel like this. I just want to be ok

    Sounds like she might’ve had a bad experience relating to alcohol in the past. Still doesn’t give her the right to take it out on you, you deserve to have fun.

    @AnonymousToe I understand this. Every time someone asks me how I'm doing while Im struggling, I won't know what to say. Cause do I lie and tell them I'm okay? Or do I say the truth and then have to explain myself? Especially if the person isn't someone who really supports me, so I wouldn't want to bother them with my problems.
    But in terms of your support person, I think you should tell them as much as you're comfortable with, but don't feel bad if you don't, take it at your own pace :)
