    If you aren't feeling strong enough to go through it then don't, just take some time off and try and relax. Look after yourself x there is plenty of time to read it it's not going anywhere, you're number one priority xp

    my report came.. too scared to open it, I know it will set me back, I know ill do something destructive, but in a way I want to read it just to punish myself?  doesn't make any sense but just how I feel.
    hey bubbles :heart:

    Do you want to chat about anything?


    there is nothing to chat about till I open this report, I know roughly what it says, how fucked up I am and a list of diagnoses I knew nothing about, was in tears when he read it out to me, I just don't feel strong enough to go through that again. <3
    hugs :heart:
    @Laine … (Woudnt let me tag BananaMonkey for some reason)  Thank you both, My friend came over last night and we went through it together, then coped with sam buca lol, but she stayed the night to make sure I was safe :) she pointed out that it has to be bad, cause my team only care about my problems, not my achievements so that wouldn't be in the report and apparently ive achieved a lot this year which she reeled off some things and it made me realize that I have come a long way, even if I do still struggle at times. 
    ' So I put a bullet where I shouda put a helmet, and I crash my car cause I wanna get carried away, that's why I'm standing on the overpass screaming at myself 'hey, I wanna get better''

    Absolutely @BubblesGoesBoo !
    It's always hard for us to recognise our achievements but they are there.

    It seems so easy to focus on the negatives but what about the positives?  We need to appreciate our mind and body even when it just tries x

    Your friend sounds amazing! So glad you have her :) xo

    Feeling like I just can’t do anything , I can’t process anything right now , feeling so anxious and rubbish about myself and just feel like I’m letting everyone down 😭

    As @Millie2787 you're not letting anyone down. 

    Sometimes we can't process things, sometimes we feel so anxious but it doesn't mean you're rubbish it letting anyone down,  you can only do your best xo

    Feel sad And I Keep getting triggered everywhere. I don’t know where is A “Safe place”. Think I’m just sensitive. Am so sad and selfish. Cant handle life at all. Even the news affects me a lot & more than maybe what’s ‘normal’

    Still really struggling usually after day one if my cycle the pain dies down but still going strong. Got my little hot water bottle, a cuppa and some malteasers but still feel miserable.

    Might start writing out my symptoms in a weekly diary to show my doc in the new year and hopefully get taken seriously about an endo diagnosis for once. Found one on endo UK so gonna start doing that from tomorrow,

    appreciate it and hope you're <3

    Really does suck, I suffer really bad that time of the month for like 3 days, it's horrible. Hope the pain eases soon.

    I just have to take stronger ibuprofen to help the pain, and keep on top of it. Every 4 hours. It's not ideal, but helps in a way

    Yeah only Co-codamol really takes my pain away, I get that if I've suffered a certain length of time xo

    I'm sad right now:( I wanna curl up in a ball and despair til i fall asleep. How did things even get like this, oh I dunno I'm just tired and fed up and down. I wish I could get out of it (and stop complaining, sorry) but I can't </3 :'(

    Hey, it's me! Again! It's Kathleen the disgusting person who's in a terrible mental state and is probably driving y'all mad by now! And I'm feeling sad and worthless and just generally down! And I'm really sorry for moaning so much and for just being on these boards, idk why I'm here! But yeah I'm struggling, nothing new here :+1:

    Hate anxiety I often feel like I'm in danger or should be scared.  Don't think I've had one day where I haven't been at least a little scared. 

    All this brexit shit isn't helping. The NHS is falling, our hospital has been on black alert like 134 times this year and I know reading articles isn't great for anxiety but it's too late for that because now I know when I need treatment I won't get it. 

    I don't know I've had a bad day and now I'm just anxious about everything at once and it's too much. 

    Sorry to bug you all thought it would be good to write it down for my counselling tomorrow x

    Not even been home 10 minutes. Had some bad news I don't even want to eat. Just made everyone a Bailey's latte and we get the text my husband has passed this is a friend of ours only saw them last year and they were still fighting fit. Not what I need when I don't have my counsellor. 

    Unsure what the plan will be tonight if i will be in chat, if i am I don't know which one yet. 

    Some people think I am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking.

    Got told today that my anxiety isn't anxiety and it isn't valid. 
    Everyone experiences anxiety differently. But now I feel like my anxiety attacks don't matter and my anxious feelings towards situations aren't valid.
    @Meggles. I’ll say to you what I’ve said to someone else that every experiences anxiety but for a group of us that’s goes into overdrive and we don’t know why 

    people who say that’s are people who don’t understand in my opinion 💖
