Lol, people shouldnt have staples in them brooke :( Argh! Sick! :lol:
At least you can get out and about now though, thats a bonus and a counsellor is a great idea, they really help some people, just be honest or else they cant do anything if they dont know the whole story.

Hey dj34, you know education isnt for everyone, at least not by way of academic routes. Have you considered a job where you could learn whilst you work, an apprenticeship perhaps? And yes, getting over your first love takes time, but it does happen. If you were to start seeing someone else, i bet yo...

Being depressed doesnt mean you have depression, but then again it could of course. Its natural to worry about money, most people do at some point in their life. I lost my job a few months back when i couldnt take anymore stress and walked out. I regret it now but whats done is done. Could you perha...

lol no you are not unreasonable. But then neither is your mum. You have lost your support system and it has changed the structure of your life, that is hard to deal with and it is also understandable that she needs some space. As a parent myself i can tell you we are not given the patience of a sain...

No life doesnt make much sense, but i think thats half the fun of it :D Why didnt you open up in therapy though? Some people find it very useful, although it never much helped me tbh. Doesnt mean it wont work for you. I wish someone had told me that things could get better when i was your age, i rea...

Hi kathy, dont worry, you're not the only one ;) Bi-polar disorder is a bit different for everyone i think, we all cope with it differently. Are you receiving treatment at all? Meds or therapy? I swing from happy to sad on a daily basis and for no good reason but have learned to manage it most of th...

Ah, lterally isolated then eh? Sorry to hear it mate, i was the same when i had back problems for years, just an existence of loneliness and constant pain, not nice at all. Hope being here helps at least, although its not the busiest site in the world tbh. Most people use the chatroom i think but no...

Its weird how people just cut you off like that after so long isnt it? Makes you wonder if they ever really cared or if you were just friends because, like, you were there if that makes sense, and someone had to be that friend. A friend by default :) Do you not have friends or people you could get t...

lol i know that feeling brooke! Staying positive is easy for a few days, when your life is shit for months and years its a different matter. And its natural to blame yourself for losing friends, i do a lot too, although it is often my fault. I turn my phone off for weeks or even months at a time, no...

Its rare anyone posts what i always think, depression can be comforting in a twisted way cant it? That at least i can rely on. Often i just dont care if i am "ill", its just how i am. If im different, so be it. But it does impact on my life, makes me do and say things i regret. I started f...

Yes stress can cause all sorts of physical health problems joe, including heart problems, raised blood pressure etc. It might well be manageable witout medication though, definitely see a doctor mate, if for nothing else to rule out more serious problems at least.
