I had a feeling things weren't good and i actually got quite worried about you Amanda, thank goodness you're okay *hug*
Hay good on you for getting started on some work im proud of you, i really am. because the it takes quite a lot to be productive but you've been doing a good job of it so far, even if it doesn't feel like it.
It's good to cry, having that outlet of emotion is more effective than hurting yourself and i things must have been so shit to go that far and im sorry to hear you feeling this low. Again well done for talking out and phoning a helpline to de-escalate the situation :yes: you're handling this brilliantly and i can tell that you really are trying really hard.
i've made you a why i think Amanda is awesome list (i hoping to get paid for this lol)
.attentive to others
.great sense of humour
And these are things i have picked up whilst talking to you on here and i would hate to hear anything bad happened to you because you're such a nice person and i really do care because you're so genuine and soo nice. You matter very much and people out there, people that you know will be saddened to hear of your passing because your apart of peoples lives, one way or another who knows man, you might might be someone reason for getting up and smiling in the morning. I know you're hurting right now but killing yourself is not the answer.
What you want is for the pain to go away, it's understandable and it completely makes sense but there are ways to make it lessen you just have to give it time, look im proof.
keep us updated yeah

Just wanted to offer my support for today *hug*
The waiting around part isn't fun, especially when you're feeling nervous. It may be a good thing keeping yourself busy until the appointment - feeling relaxed is okay; it might put you a little more at ease and may feel more like just a chat. It's really good that you've prepared with your list - remember today is about working through what your needs are and maybe exploring your options :yes:
Let us know how you get on, we're right behind you

I've just gotten back from work but I wanted to respond to your thread because honestly I can relate to aspect of your thread, I know I'm not in your shoes or anything, but I know what a difficult battle it is to be attending university while also battling and mental health issues, or battling with your own mental health, unless you've been in the position I don't think people really get it, but take a deep breath, often when were so tied up with University life and also home life and like also mental health m'larkey we forget we NEED to look after ourselves and by that I don't mean like sit in your room doing nothing, I mean, go out, treat yourself, hang with friends, do something you enjoy, because you need the 'me' time by the sounds of things.
Are you commuting from home for University? I know you have like the stress of appts and stuff too, but honestly I know its easier said than done, but for a moment, allow yourself to focus on you, have you joined any societies or anything at University yet? Or looked into societies your university has to offer? Did you find out about the outcome of clinical appointment yet? Or do you have to wait a bit? Like waiting is the worst bit, especially if you're so focussed on it, because it will bring you down but you need to do something that will help distract you away from it, when you can feel your mind ticking away at it, go for a walk or even just blast some music and dance to it. Like do something you feel comfortable with, but also distracts you.
How is university life treating you? I'm always here for you if you ever like need a chat, I do know how lonely it can feel sometimes to go into the environment of university and also having your mental health bring you down too.
