    Why Make A Blog?

    By MrsRoryFromRunrig

    Why should one make a blog? There are a number of reasons to why making a blog is great, the advantages are: 1 - Relieves Stress 2 - Can help others 3 - Preach what YOU care about 4 - You have control 5 - It can actually turn into a business (like Cake Wrecks). There are a couple of disadvantages though: 1- Research, can take up time and not always be correct, always double check. 2 - People may read what you see as light hearted chat as to be someth

    So, here we are. And a big thank you!!

    By Gilly

    January 2012. The past year has been eventful to say the least. Met some amazing people, had some bad times, some great times, some frustrating times but lots of laughs too. And now I find myself in charge of a site. Just how did that happen? lol It's never been my intention. I love to help people, in helping people, I help myself. I've said in the past, if it came down to it, I would be willing to do something. I guess I didn't really think it would happen, but here we are! It's a shame th

The First Post

Well, hi. I just made this account after searching many (many, many, many) different websites, trying to find something, anything that I can get on where I can just..write. Because I'm not really sure what to do anymore. Obviously I'm here because I am struggling with anxiety. And I havent seen anybody about it, and I dont really want to. Is it even anxiety? What is anxiety? Am I overreacting, is it something else? How do you know, and how do you deal with it? It happened again tonight. I

My Journey

One huge step that I recently took in my recovery journey was to follow my doctor's suggestion of joining a therapy group. I was referred to a 12 week group, its 5 days a week in the mornings. I am now 7 weeks in. Going to this group was one of my best decisions. Everyone in the group is super supportive. The staff are all wonderful and I know I'm in the right place. This is a mixed group using interpersonal, psychodynamic and Cognitive behavioural therapies. It is very structured, which he

Nervous!!!

I have noticed over the past few weeks my anxiety is slowly getting worse, I never leave the house on my own now, I always have someone with me, normally my sister which makes me feel guilty because she has to plan her day around me and any appointments I have, I am seeing someone next week to start a course of CBT (cognitive behavioural therapy) which has got me worried big style, the reason? the person I am seeing. when I first started with depression I had to go see a councillor,she was nic

How do you eat an Elephant?

My doctor once asked me how do you eat an elephant? i didn't really understand what she meant at the time but these past few weeks i am beginning to understand. When i was a child and a teengager i was very shy and quiet and didn't fit in,tie that and me being a big person seemed to give people a reason to pick on me and i was bullied alot,at times i begged my parents to let me change high schools but they never did and i couldnt wait to leave. After high school i spent 2 and a half years

Breakthrough.

When I first went for therapy with a Jungian therapist he posed the question, "Do you want to get over this or go through it?" As I did not understand I responded, as one would; 'well, I want to get over it'. It took me some time to realise what he meant. To 'get over' something means that you revert to what you were before. Fine! That's just how I want to be, my old self. But is it? Is that not what brought about your trouble in the first place. The way you lived; how you thought; the relation

Agoraphobia

Hello, I am new here. I am here looking for advice mostly. I myself suffer from slight depression...anxiety and ocd. They have not affected my day to day life too much , but some days I do shut down and need solace. I have just started dating an agoraphobic. I felt quite lonely in my past relationship and am starting to feel that way again. I am supportive of him..and actually understand what he deals with.... but because I am human and love him, I am craving more time, and closene

Frustrated....

It's been such a long time since I felt good. I remember a time when I didn't have to worry about panic and anxiety. For 6 years I have been living a nightmare. I have some days that are good. Others that are pure hell. I was put on Zoloft and Ativan for my panic and anxiety. Seemed to work good for a long time. Then bam. It seemed like nothing worked. I have been on so many pills. I tried them all. So many bad side effects. Finally in January of 2012 I decided I had enough. I stopped taking Zol

Back Blogging

Well, blogging took a back seat for a wee while whilst I got myself sorted because my depression decided to be a douche. But yeh I am back and I am happy to be typing away like crazy again, I love it soo much, I suppose that is why I want to become a writer/journalist in so many ways. I was wanting to do sports journalism, but I am more and more leaning towards entertainment, and no I wont stalk anyone for you guys lmao. I changed from sports journalism because with the whole affa

All My Life

The other night my girlfriend was sleeping. It was about 3am, so the only thing I knew to do was write my poetry. All my life I have sought poetry, believed in poetry, from end to earth and beyond. I thought the way out was the way in, and through experience I would know more in life. I even began to stand on passionate moral stones, something I had never done before. Yet they are two impossible ones. Change the channel if you don't like them, but they are the belief that money is the

So, this is what happened!

My mum called my curriculum leader about me being off and my sickline. All she had to say was "I'm sorry she isn't well" AND "she will have to email me about her returning", ummmm excuse me? I am signed off for my anxiety and depression, I am getting help and all the college can think about is numbers and statisitics, f***&&& BS! After my 4 weeks is up, I am literally gona say to my GP that I don't want to go back just to go back to square one, cause I know that will happen

So angry right now

So today I've been feeling ill. Anxiety pretty low though, for a change. Then Mum calls, my Brother wants to talk to me. I call my Brother who said Mums annual review was today, well as her primary carer it would be nice to know!! All I was aware about was the council wanted to talk to me about my Mum. I got a letter a few days ago, requested I call them to discuss Mum, but who and where, no details on the letter, no contact information. So my Brother was there when social services came to

Depression & Me.

Well, Hi everyone, I am Pam, also known as Bendy. I am 26 years old, will soon be 27, and I would like to tell you about depression and me. It all really started when I was 7 years old in Primary School. My best friend at the time was tragically killed within the school grounds in a freak accident, my mum tried and tried to get me counselling as I had witnessed the event, but the school and education board would not allow it, even the doctors wouldn't put me through as I was young they must ha

Adam Smith College, Fife is SCUM!

Adam Smith College, you have reached an all time low!. I received a letter today regarding my application to HND Practical Journalism. It stated that they could not offer me a place. I wonder why? Because I am over 25, have no qualifications, have some radio journalism experience? Whatever it may be it will NOT be because there are no places left. Funny how they offered me an interview LAST YEAR!!! Why DOES the college not let those over 25 with experience onto their course? I hav

A Blog I wrote about Bullying and Me.

Here, I am going to talk about how I was bullied through Primary School, High School, One time at College, my work and most recently online. I have had a tough life, I was an outcast in school, mainly because none of my family were from Fife, everyone was like family because they were from the area. But I wasn't. I had friends who stood by me up until the age of 12, when it was revealed I was diagnosed with depression. They must have all thought I was mad because of my age etc. I felt so lo

Headache and Panic

First proper post . Well, after my rather LONG sleep from 6pm till midnight, I had a stonking headache. SO what happens, I get up and boof a rush of anxiety started, even after taking pain killers the anxiety was still about, I seriously don't know why it decided to attack, maybe due to the stress I have been under since Weds. Well, I took to the chat and started to blether away and forgot about being in a panic about the headache. Ahhhh and the slave, I mean older

I thought this would be good for me to post about my day to you all..cause I trust you guys and love you tonssss (lol). They say to keep a journal for yourself to help with your anxiety and depression. Maybe if I journal it on here it will help others to see that they are not alone and theirs life isn't as bad as it may seem. If I can get thru each day than anyone can . So as usual I woke up with anxiety..Ive been really worried about MONEY and some things I've been thru lately that I haven't
