  1. Today started out well, I had to do a bunch of admin shit which is always a drag. I took myself on a little shopping date where I bought two new squishmellows and then decided I could afford to go to H&M and found about 5 items for $99 which is a real bargain since the stores I normally buy from would be 3x the price! $99 wouldn't even get you through the door at this places. But im not in the financial position to even walk into the sores, maybe one day but I do really like what I found at H&M and cant wait to wear them as summer approaches hope you guys had/have good days too
  2. Hey, thanks for responding, I stated on 25 and went up by 25 each week, I was feeling my best on 75-125 but I was too itchy even on 125. The itchiness didn't start till I was on 200 but didnt resolve till I was on 100.. so idk, my psych nurse talked to another dr and said it was ok to continue so I guess I will. its just frustrating. Hope it all goes smoothly for you too. Med changes going up and down is a headache
  3. Yeah (my mum makes a fabulous Pav) the Aussies like to claim Pav as their own lol I dont really like Pav but I do like to eat kiwifruit on its own, especially the green ones, the more sour and tarty the better!
  4. I like JA too but even time I see her in something else all I can see is Rachel Green from friends. I've always wished I had friends like them, I've watched that show so many times I did feel like they were my friends for awhile It's easier to like people through a screen right
  5. haha a kiwi is a small flightless bird who sort of looks like a brown chicken but with a long thin beak (and is the NZ mascot - where we get the term "NZers are kiwis" from). They're endangered because we have quite a few introduced skink and ferrets that like to eat them. I've been to the two major zoos here hoping to see one but they never come out, I guess they don't like people either haha grumpy shquishes are my jam, my owl is 12" I think
  6. I've been watching greys anatomy from the start and George has just died and I felt the loss like he was my friend. I'm so sad that he had to leave the show. Its not the same without him. (However Jackson Avery/Jesse Williams has just come on and holy hell he is a god of a man, I don't think Ive seen such an attractive man irl lol) Gosh when your mentally ill TV shows become my entire social life, my entire life really because there's seems so much better and more exciting. I love George
  7. I bought an owl squishmellow called her Winx, she helps me sleep cuz she's like a giant soft huggable cushion and Ive found being squished and tight in bed helps a lot. I've never seen an owl either, but I think they're intelligent beautiful birds. I don't even think we have owls in New Zealand. Our wild life consists of Kiwis that never appear, and maybe the odd Tui bird. Though I have seen Emus before and they're hilarious birds Do cows, sheep and domestic cats count as wild life? thats pretty much all you see here
  8. I'm frustrated at my current meds and psychiatrist situation. And my GP cant do much (even tho she's great) cuz there's such tight regulations on meds other than SSRIs I am living on my own now which is great and I love it so much and in 4 weeks I'm starting my PhD which I'm so excited about but my dad and body Arte becoming a mess again and I really wanted to be in a healthy place when I started and im not again and ugh. I should just request to change psychiatrists, I didn't like her from the start anyway, she apparently doesn't like her patients also being educated ugh im so frustrated. Hope you've all had better days
  9. Has anyone been on this med? What was your experience? My psychiatrist wanted me on 200mg so I got there and holy hell it made me so itchy (like non stop constant itchy) and I was getting these weird spot/blisters on my fingers and toes... So I've taken it back down to 100mg, the itchiness and spots as stopped I think but I told my psych and the psych nurse and they said I should come off it. I'm currently coming off venlafaxine as well and was going to be my last week on it, but I cant see my psychiatrist for two more weeks and I cant be on nothing so I don't know what to do. This psychiatrist is actually a ****ing joke. At first she was trying to tell me I was BPDDII and not listing to my concerns about being on the spectrum and ADHD (thankfully I got those diagnosis) but ugh she's frustrating. I feel like she's avoiding me because I haven't seen her in about 6 weeks now. Like what the ****? UGH! Sorry for my little rant its so frustrating this damn woman shouldn't be a psych if she cant listen to her patient experiences and take them into consideration when using her education to make diagnosis. Im absolutely not BPDDII because Ive never in my life had inflated self esteem or a higher sense of self or whatever mania gives you (tbh that would actually be the one good thing about BPDD because this long term chronic depression with your self esteem in the bottom of the trash 24/7 is hell). I'm so frustrated omg and feel like she's dumped me and left me in the lurch when were still augmenting my meds In other news, Ive moved out on my own which has been fab for my anxiety but not much else. And Im starting my PhD on the 3rd of October so thats exciting. I just hope I can get my meds in order before I start so I can be as level headed as possible to deal with all the future stress it'll cause. I cant be on nothing, but I hate venlafaxine and lamotrigine was helping between 75-150mg but apparently my body cant handle it so zksejdfb;iaJFDFGVF! frustrated, anxious, depressed me is back tho she never actually left. At least I'm not Sui atm, thats a plus I suppose. Sorry for the novel, if anyone gets through all of this then you're a star
  10. oh Ive also been struggling with this lately, I really try but when the depression and self worth come in... I'm trying
  11. Im picking up the key for my flat and moving in tomorrow and I am so excited to be living on my own
  12. haha not for another 4 years, but as soon as I get the title ill be using it every chance I get
  13. I'm about to start my PhD in biomedical science, I met with the supervisor on Friday and she showed me some of the cells she works on and I literally had a braingasam I was so impressed and excited and I cannot wait to start I've dreamed and wanted to do one for so long it just feels to good to be true!! thank you
  14. I'm so f*kn tired a few good things happened this week tho, I finally FINALLY got a PhD, like I'm 100% a PhD student now, and I found my own apartment!! I'm so excited to live alone, just me and my cat, and then to get more cat children
  15. Hey, sorry you're struggling with this, I dont have the answers for regaining pressure etc but I feel you on the not being interested in sex anymore. I was as a teen but had a really traumatic relationship and its put me off from ever having one again and being able to trust someone enough to be that vulnerable again. I wish I had the answers but you're not alone in this
