Brilliant :D It's really cheering to hear what you're doing, and to see your hard work, persistence and insight paying off.

I’m assuming your doctor has advised you to up your dosage?

:lol:

Sounds interesting- bit of a bonus, bit of a challenge. Enjoy the energy levels :D

So might that mean a new phase when it settles in? I don't know if I could handle additional factors myself, and know you won't mind me saying that, since everyone's different.

Mind you I fell into a vat of happy pills as a baby, so they never let me have some more, even with a big punch up coming (Asterix and Obelisk reference, showing my age)

[quote="andthistoomustpass"]Diary Entry

It has always been me against the world, for as long as I can remember.
Never trust anyone, you will be betrayed.
Never let your guard down, you will be attacked.
Never show your true self, you will be pilloried, beaten and osracised (and rightly so).

that really hit home. its exactly where my mindset is, especially after the tesco incident. if you can get anywhere with this, please let me know

in terms of being lonely all I can advise there is don't try too hard. I was where you are at one point. do you know how I finally found my girlfriend?

I stopped looking :D

Hi andthistoo

Our childhoods can be really bad even if bombs aren't going off. Also our interpretation is valid regardless. It seems your childhood was very distressing. I don't know how you deal with that. I would say my childhood played a role in my mental illness and I can handle it intellectually. Emotionally is another story.

Take care

Hi andthistoo

Just read this. You are very resourceful. Reminding myself how resourceful I am can help me. Being res... Is, I would say, massive in the ability to live and help oneself with all that is crap in our heads.

Keep up the excellent work you put into all of this!

Hi andthistoo

I had person centred counselling a few years ago. It helped with my self esteem a great deal. Some people don't get on with it but I really liked it.

:) I feel that at times. I don't drink coffee and try and meditate as often as I can. But still have that feeling at times.

Hi andthistoo

I found person centred counseling very helpful. It really helped me find my real voice and find my true feelings

Best wishes
