Our minds can play the worst tricks on making us see the worst in a situtation,. When reality shows things are fine all along hold onto that though, let it drown out the urge to blame yourself further for having had doubts in the first place. :-) x
:( sorry to hear this, I found myself really irritable whilst on them. I hope these side effects improve
hope it gets better, Jodie - thinking of you xx
as are you :)
you are too - glad you're here x
I've found the violence in GoT to be a weirdly good distraction from SH urges... ooh, what about painting your nails? it at least postpones the urge & keeps your hands busy
I really enjoy GoT (although I'm a book fan too & am a bit confused by what they're doing to the tv show I still like it). My nail polish needs removing and repainting. Good idea
My grammar is horrific! Aah I apologise.
Oh! me too! I think they're deliberately deviating from the books now so as to ensure that they can surprise those who have read up to the end of ADWD. It's not horrific at all!
I hope your brain doesn't burst out of your head. that sounds... unpleasant. you know, maybe your body is trying to tell you slmething, I dunno.
Can't even sleep, my mind is going a hundred miles a minute! Beats fatigue though
glad you have a friend like that - and nice to see a 5
I keep hugging myself instead of leaving a comment! :/ also had 8 vials of bloods taken, surprised I have any left!!
Gosh, are you sure they're not vampires? do you feel a bit of relief though, knowing what it is you've got? I had an ex with crohns -he lived a normal life (did get a magical key for disabled loos)
Haha the lady taking my bloods did have a tourniquet with vampires on it. I feel relieved that my GI dr & nurse took me seriously & squeezed me in at the last minute. Totally different ball game to my experience with MH services.
I also want a magic loo key!!
'Magic Loo Key' sounds funny! But it's good to get a diagnosis! Crohns is a rough condition, but it's totally treatable, and with treatment you can eat better and be healthier. Always better to know! *Hugs*
I'm glad they listened and you're on your way to getting the help you need. I do really hate how physical illnesses are given more respect than mental ones though
So glad you know what's going on! It is a relief. Amy, that is wrong. If I had a broken leg, you wouldn't send me home and tell me to try to relax and get over it.
Totally agree, it feels like in MH services once they've slapped a label on you, everything you do is related to that 'diagnosis'. You can't just... be. I also feel psych Drs to be incredibly sceptical in my experience.
I also think 'magic loo key' sounds like a kids book!
Do you know of the Biff, Chip & Kipper books? I think they might ' ve had a magic key
my sister has Crohns - once it finally got diagnosed they were able to help her manage it, as Jeff says. such a difficult time for you; big hugs and rest! xx
I remember those Amy! I wonder if it worked on disabled loos.
Thank you for your lovely comment as usual Cindy, big hugs to you too. :)
