Doesnt have to be 10 physical things but a few! I can think if one... maybe I'll sleep on it again >_<
Shapely earlobes perhaps?
Crap few days continues. Feel empty/dead inside. Could not care less if I lived or died and this doesn't bother me. Better than very low and ruminating though.
I did use to try just... bashing me, off things, if that makes sense. Like punching things. Or jumping off thing I knew where too high for me to safely to land. But it was noticable,s o i had to switch to a razor.
You know this is pretty much exactly how I feel at the moment. The anti depressant has noticeably stopped me getting extremely low these days but I feel very flat and apathetic about everything including life. Frustrating but I suppose it's good in a way.
once you've admitted it to yourself its much easier.. Telling them will make it easy for you to succeed.. Or if you don't feel comfortable, you could tell a teacher you trust and they will talk to your parents for you.
It's hard, im in a very similar situation to you. I've only just admitted I need help, on my way to my first counselling appt, because I know I'll just ruin college for myself if I don't, and then all the hard work I'ved done will be for nothing!
4 weeks off there was an improvement. About 3 months off the meds I noticed a big difference and within 6 months most off I was more or less back to normal. Except for my teeth that I had grinded down from clenching.
I read that if meds are causing you issues with digestion and constipation this can affect your nutrition levels. I felt constantly dehydrated on the meds no matter how much water I drank. This happened to me on different types over the years.
Interesting. I suppose I've been off them nearly six months and things haven't returned to normal aesthetically, but that could be in my head... I was constantly dehydrated as well, i'd get up in the morning and literally could not open my mouth because the top was stuck to the bottom! And no matter how much water I drank it didn't seem to make a difference.
For me, the physical problems were chronic so it just wasn't worth staying on them. Thanks for the info.
On another note, does anyone else find that if you really want to beat something like this, it requires work all day every day... like active mental work. For me to keep it up it feels like I have to consciously use as much of my brain as I would studying... if I stop for a period of time I regress
To be positive - I like my fingers and my thighs.
I wasn't feeling at all well this morning, so I took my jacket off when I got into town. Got stopped by one of them charity collectors, and they asked about the scars :/ bit awkward,
That was more than a bit cheeky of them...in my mind, only health professionals have a right to ask and even then, only if it effects them
I know they are meant to be forward but jesus christ on a bike thats a bit much isn't it.
What business is it of theirs?
They resort to shock tactics to get you to stop and talk to them.. A*****es..
Conversation basically went
'hi there, would you like to donate
no thanks im a bit busy
ooh thats some nasty cuts you've got on your arms there. Did you get attacked by a tiger?(insert laughing)

I fell over'
Cue me walking very fast away.
