What would I say I'm reporting them for, would it be harassment or something?

I second this - if you got his/her name.

Yeah it portrays the chuggers in a negative light to the public which I'm sure the higher ups would be keen to get sorted - they'd get a bollocking for being rude to potential donators.

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!


thank you. best of luck to you, i hope the appt went wellv

Most likely the stitches made him think that there's no way it was self inflicted. Etc.

Thats fair enough. Still :/

Was it said in a derogatory sort of way though? People just tend to be curious, you know?

#3,866

Not really. Kind of jokey, till they asked me where they from seriously. Just rattled me a bit you know.

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


On the appearance thing, I took loads of vitamins, gave up dairy and drank loads of water as well as walking every day. Don't really know what made the difference but it was probably a combination off all of them.

I find the best thing to do is just routine myself. I made an agreement with myself that I was replacing the meds with healthy positive actions. For now its working for me. Who knows what the future will bring

I know what you mean about the active mental work. I was exhausted trying to fight it. When I am down I have now tried to stop looking for reasons. There are no reasons really. I was tired of never living up to my own expectations. Tired of the label of depression being the defining characteristic of my personality. Its not positive thoughts that help. Its positive actions, routine and distractions that make the difference for me.

Some things in life are crap and they are not only crap because of depression. Some people are bastards and its not just us being sensitive or depressed.

We are all too hard on ourselves.

I went to one privately. He was very understanding as I was out of work at the time so each meetup was very cheap. He was a lovely guy however I just felt it wasn't for me - not just him but the whole counselling thing in general.

It did, my counsellor has recommending a leave of absence, and has contacted my coordinator. I'm going to take a year out, work a few extra hours to save some money, attend counselling, get my driving licence, learn Java so I'm more prepared for going back, and join the gym. These are the things that are weighing on my mind on top of my loss, and these are the things that I will be working on.

The weight off my shoulders having had this sorted out has been immense. I cannot tell you how much better I feel, and I'm pretty sure it will be a load of your mind too!
