    One thing depression does is distorts our thinking, thats why i'm doing CBT, which is helping. So don't believe the list of words you wrote down. I'm sure your a very nice young lady :) I'd also recommend cbt to anyone.
  8. I've been on Seroquel for 8 months and sleep like a dream every night, but yes it does take sometime to get use to...id give it at least a week before you right it off. Personally im on 400mg but for other issues aswell, i started on 25mg which is the normal starting dose.
  9. .......and i'm such an ***** for doing it :(....feel so crap today which is sad, espicially on xmas day...all i can think about is getting more to feel good again...i mean illegal drug feels so good, espically for a depressive. *sigh I NEED MORE.
  10. Hi everyone. Seems like years since i posted on here, just thought i'd make a 'return'. Well ive been seeing my psychologist for 8 weeks now. undergoing CBT. it seems to be helping to an extent but still alot of work to be done. i like my psychologist though, kind of fancy her! lol but i know this is quite normal, so ive been told. My meds have changed, im now on Zoloft 200mg and Seroquel 400mg for elements of psychosis. Basically i have a certain risk of developing Schizophrenia in the future so my psychiatrist says, but not sure i believe him. So i have check ups and what not and a social worker to keep an eye out o nany new symptoms or if current symptoms get worst, liek seeing things, hearing things, odd beliefs, isolation etc. Mentally i've been up and down, going thorugh suicidal spells and normal spells and cutting has decreased but isn't totally gone. At the moment i kind of im just going through the motions, not really living, but just doing what has to be done for the sake of it, if you know what i mean? I have got a new job which is helping me try and be normal, i work as a electricians mate, kind of his Biotch lol, but it interests me and i hope to do a course soon. so MAY have found a career at last. Anyway not sure what im talking about, so i wish everyone a happy xmas and new year. by for now. Brit.

    Quick Update.

    Hi Everyone! , Just thought i'll do an update as i haven't written in a month. I saw my therapist on the 26th of July to discuss my future mental health plan. She said to stay on my current medication which is, Zoloft, Tegretol and Seroquel which seem's to be helping to a degree. She also said she would write to Wokingham mental health services, I got a letter from them the other day saying i have to go to an appointment on the 6th Of August to see a psychiatrist and a social worker who experts in spotting early signs of psychosis. Alot earlier than i expected as she said it would be a 2 month wait! lol I'm not exactly sure what will happen at this appointment, all the letter says is "This is to advise you that an outpatient appointment has been made for you at Wallis House with Dr xxx and Paul". Oh well guess i will find out soon. Also i have been working this week! yay, been doing some labouring for a maintainence company in a 10 story building in town centre which was fun. I thought it went ok, shame it was only for this week, but i felt pretty good. Still had some anxiety but didn't prevent me from doing a good job. I'm hoping the agency will find me some work next week aswell. Other than that not much going on, been feeling pretty good as late, lets hope it continues! I hope everyone is doing ok on DF, shame about chat not being here no more.
  17. Oh Whatever tom, your annoying me now.
  18. It's pure discrimination to smokers. Why should i stand out in the cold? just because i like the odd smoke. If you don't like the smoke sit outside. The government makes millions out of taxes off cigarettes, what if we all quit?, where will the lost money come from? Pfffft! some free world we live in.
  19. I'd hardly call breathing air in London clean air. Yeah i know sheepwomen that a ban on alcohol would be impossible, but if a person drinks them self silly then get's liver problems then they sohuld pay for there healthcare right?
  20. Today.......i showered, wrote an application for a job, made a few phone calls...didn't go outside (lol) but tomorrow my goal is to go to town and get some stuff sorted and generally be more active. oh and wake up before 12 o'clock.
  21. Well, members should know better than too give out personal infomation to anyone.
  22. Yes, the great nanny state which is the UK. Alcohol is bad for you, why not ban them?
  23. Oh well, theres always msn.
