Anyone else having a hard week

PenguinSkyPenguinSky Posts: 42 The answer to life, the universe, and everything
Been rough this week, feeling anxious and angry and sad a lot more and I don't know why... I actually started crying at work today cos I was so stressed. Been on the 9-5 shift instead of the get up super early one, but I still don't really feel like I'm getting enough sleep. Also I'm coming off some medication soon - I felt like it was the right time. But I'm still scared about stopping (it's been about 2 years) so maybe that's affecting me too?
Anyway, that's my week. It's sucked. Sending virtual hugs to anyone else feeling crap right now x

    Hey @PenguinSky, thank you for sharing this - sometimes we have tough weeks, and talking about them can help sometimes!

    It sounds like some of you have had a difficult week. Well done for getting through it, and I hope that the weekend gives some time to de-stress and recover from any illnesses! Do you all have plans to do something fun or relaxing - seeing a friend, doing a favourite hobby, or perhaps going to a particular place? :)

    @Azziman I caught up with a friend I've not seen in a while and talked through something that happened with them and my mum

    I've also got more regular appointments in place for student support and wellbeing

    I've got some coursework I could be doing but luckily for the most part I'm caught up so I might give myself a break and come back to it when I'm ready

    @lunarcat522 sounds like you're doing pretty good 🤩 good luck with the coursework! And student support services were an incredible source of support for me while i was at uni, so I really hope it's helpful for you too x
