Take your time what's the rush?
That sounds frustrating. I hope things go well for you.
Thanks Michelle W, whike i was nervous as ever before hand. The doctor i saw actually turned out to be better than expected. Shes a holistic doctor and so doesnt rely solely on on meds to treat depression and anxiety. Shes getting me onto zinc and
Magnesium to start with and has also ordered a blood test to see if i am vitamin deficient in other areas. She also uses diet and exercise too. She thinks with a bit of work i might not even need the meds.
That sounds great! Good for you! :)
Wendy - you're a star. Thank you for being so open, it's refreshing to read your successes tonight and has even made me feel more positive.
Thanks Rosie, i just been taking one day at a time and focusing on me for once. Having a good psych has helped alot to make me be able to recognise my entrenched thought patterns and disordered thinking. I have also been looking at my family and
Working out that alot of the behaviours and stuff i have in my family are generational. So it has given me even more momentum to chamge
So sorry. Mouth pain is the worst!
Thanks everyone. Yeap it is the pits. Hoping to get it removed soon. Just waiting to hear from my work wether i am working wednesday or thursday.
See it as a fun outing, in stead of something serious. It could be fun!
I actually ended up having an awesome night Lieteke G. It was very informal speed dating, so it wasnt bogged down with all the silly questions etc. We ended up in a photo booth at the end of the night goofing around with three complete strangers.
Sounds like a great night ou! Good thing you went! And you have nice pictures to remember the night 😀
Yeah we do Lieteke G, and it also got me back out dating again. Though i will still be super causious about it, as dont want another guy like my ex again.
You just did a huge thing a few days ago, by driving through your ex's neighbourhood. Might this be an aftereffect of that? I can imagine it made made you feel very very anxious and scared. Maybe talk to someone about it? You are doing so well, not
Selfharm. You can be so proud of yourself!
Thanks Lieteke G. Yeah it could be an after effect of that, as i worked out today that i actually live in fear of bumping into him again. Also i think might be too many changes as i am changing jobs and starting uni again, this week.
So many things put of your comfort zone. Well done. Living in fear takes a lot of energy. It is a shame, we can't turn it of, because most of the time the fear is much worse then when it actually happens. I promise you, it will go away, but it takes
Maybe the changes is just what you need. You are completely changing your life, no bad memories lingering in your job environment. Beginning is scary, but it might be a lot of fun, or at last interesting. What are you going to study?
Hi Lieteke G. I'm studying a Bachelors of nursing part time.
Wow, well done!! It must have been very hard to do that. Was it the first time you went back there? Great job you found out how to divert the trigger.
Thanks Liteke G, yeap it was the first time since we split in the middle of last year. It was ultra triggering though, like i was worried before i even left my house that i was going to somehow bump into him as i was driving past.
I know the feeling. Was paranoid when I heard my ex was back in town. That will get less and less as time goes by. Never met him again, strangely enough. meeting might have taken away the fear of the unexpected. Very brave you did go through his area
Sometimes it just takes a bit longer. Being on meds isn't an indication of your success or value, remember that!
Don't worry it's totallly normal! Nothing wrong with meds but you can also give it more time to wear off
Goodluck hope you have a good day.
Thank you all and Annie B, it has been going okay. My maon reason fir trying it is that i havent been sleeping. So i thought i'd try going off the meds and see if it helps.
Hopefully you can get some sleep.
Be careful. See your gp to avoid withdrawal signs.
Yeah i hope so too. Its been about an hour or two a night, which means my meds arent working anyway. If i start getting withdrawls though i will prob go back on it.
I bet you reinstall them within a few weeks. Once your pain is ceased. It's natural.
Nup not this time, i want a real guy. Not some guy who just wants to get to know me for sex, and then leaves me again once hes bored or i wont do what he wants me to. I got sick of it so decided i better off being alone, and waiting for the right one
Why are you so sure you can't find this one on dating sites? There are absolutely the same guys as in real life.
I think its probably not the app itself but the pool of guys who use it. In my region they all seem to be in the calibre if wanting a fling and that is all. I can prob give a diffrent app a crack and see if its the same.
I hear you. They are out there..but hard to come by :/ x good luck and don't settle for less! X
Thanks Everyone, and thanks Rosie. Yeap definitely not settling for anyone less. I would prefer to be alone than settle for a guy that makes me miserable.
