I can't really deny the meds. There's a big difference between medicine to give you a bit of a boost and medicine to actually make it possible to function on a daily basis, the latter of which is what I need. Hell, even her name is a trigger for me. It's terrifying and I want to be able to do something, which I can't.

Yes, I was stating my opinion, but my lifelong experience as well. I don't expect anyone to take my advice nor to believe a word I say. The least I'm trying to do is decide what is best for another person. I only wanted to point out a different perspective. I speak from what I've learnt from my own disorder which is in a very difficult stage, as well as the disorders of a dozen of people I am constantly around. Most people here can't afford medication so we have to learn to deal with everything another way. Please don't take me out of context and please don't understand me wrong. I am not an expert and I'm not trying to be one.

Drinking a cup of Tetley tea whilst catching up on the news and here.

@Bungalow Bob, this is for you. I just saw the sign quickly out of the taxi window.

Great timing, Ahhh Girl! I am going to lunch in a few hours at my former boss' new Greek restaurant, and I will be sure to order "Chicken Glyfada." And if its not on the menu, I'll ask if they can improvise it. That will be sure to impress the restaurant staff. Or annoy them. ;-)

Glyfada is the ritziest, fancy-pants suburb of Athens. Its nicknames include the "Beverly Hills of Greece," the "Hellenic Hamptons," or "Knightsbridge-on-sea," for our Beatles Bible friends in UK.

Do something, anything to get your mind to go elsewhere. Trying not to think about something only leads to thinking about what you dont want to think about.

Put music on, the tv, pick up a book or magazine and read it, surf the interweb, go outside and count clouds, do some baking, stroke a cat or dog (if you dont have one of your own get the neighbours), cut a tree, paint the house, do some housework.

Just finished an assignment, had to come up with a sports and games activity for blind children. Now I can just sit back, relax and surf the forum while enjoying my tea.

ScrambledEggs, that's the spirit! So what if it takes you a bit longer to get there? As long as you'll be able to follow your dreams, what does it matter? My journey to university was a year longer than planned too, but that didn't stop me. It took a bit longer, but now I'm doing the thing I love. It's better to do your best to realize your dreams, then to be okay with doing something you don't really want. And if it doesn't work out, then at least you've tried.

Mr. Moonlight: I actually agree with Joe on the meds thing. A good doctor is very important, and proper medication can really help you out. Sure, your problems won't disappear, but medication can help you deal with them better and in a different way. If it helps you, just continue. Do whatever feels right for you. I think that finding the right distractions might send you in the right way too.

I would personally be a bit scared to take anything against mental problems. I don't know what it is. 

My mom came home with some bad news, which I don't know how to deal with. I don't really want to tell what it is, but I just wanted to let this out. Hearing it did something with me.

House cleaning. The monotony of life comes clinging so taking one of my many breaks to relieve the tediousness of it all.

Just having enough time to post this now:

@ScrambledEggs Good on you, if life has thought me anything it's that there is a way to do anything! An extra year may act as a benefit to you in the long-term to your knowledge of German anyways. The more time to study-the better your German will be (and we'll be in a German university at the same time :P ).

@MrMoonlight I agree with Joe's original advice, take up a new hobby (whether it be cycling, acting whatever). Creative writing and reading are great means of escapism (for me anyways).

 

In my life: Loud noises in my school are really irritating me (people slamming their hands on desks, tapping pencils, scraping their shoes on the ground and people talking). Ugh!

@MrMoonlight, I only read your story today. Wow… it seems pretty terrible. Hope you're doing ok…

I agree with @Linde about the medication, do what feels right for you. But also try to think about positive things, maybe you could do something like yoga or meditation, something that will make you relax. And listen to The Beatles!!! The Beatles always make me feel happy. 

I hope you'll cheer up! 

Eva

PS. Sorry if I'm horrible at making people feel better, just not my thing…

I hope whatever it is isn't too serious and a way ahead comes apparent to deal with it for yourself and with your mum.

 

As for medication its down to the person, the situation and what the experts say, there is no one rule for all way of life. 

I've been given medication from one doctor which has almost immediately been taken away from another saying its unnecessary. I was also told by one expert i was to undergo tests only for another to come along and say the test would be utterly pointless and cancel it.

 

One thing you should do @MrMoonlight  is find a hobby, something that you can really focus your mind and free time on. Start stamp collecting, wood-work, book reviewing (Joe is wondering if folk here would be interested in it) or whatever you want to do (i recall Joe saying the same thing previously). It doesnt have to be expensive and who knows where it might lead.
