  1. Are you able to distance yourself from them any at all, Joycicle? If it's family you live with or are close to, then I understand not being able to separate yourself, but friends? Sounds like their drama needs to be stifled or they're not very good for you.
  2. Ugh! Are you able to talk to her about that at all? If she even realizes that you were about to take a bath or something, then that sounds like she's not even trying to let you have any space. It might be funny that it always happens, but 3 years later, that's gotta be frustrating...
  3. Well do you have any food/medication allergies or have you had any adverse experiences with them? Do you have any close friends/family members that struggle with those allergies? You may find that part of the phobia is simply linked to experience and the fear that it might happen to you, too (or happen again).
  4. Oh yes, it is definitely a chick flick, lol. I think it fits some other genres, too, but as a tearjerker, it's for the women.
  5. How do you go about finding quiet time away for yourself? Do you tell your family or friends that you need to be left alone? Do you just schedule time every day for it? Do you run off when you need it?
  6. I found this article about the idea of "secondhand stress" and it reminded me of the thread here where we were talking about toxic friends. Give it a look: http://www.wikihow.com/Spot-and-Avoid-Secondhand-Stress
  7. Having an official diagnosis is a great first step to getting better. I hope the medication really helps you.
  8. *hugs* If there's anything we can do, you know where to find us. You obviously don't really know me, but I know there are a lot of other people here who probably know you better and would do anything for you. Best of luck.
  9. Ugh, that's awful. I really hope you don't truly give up on socializing because of a bad apple. It sounds like they're toxic, as Gilly said, and that kind of drama is something nobody should have to deal with.
  10. In addition to what everyone else has been saying, you should really pay attention to how much water you're drinking. Being dehydrated can cause a lot of issues. And if your diet overall isn't that great, then your body could be trying to compensate by sleeping more. It's exhausted. It doesn't have the right fuel to stay awake more and not be groggy.
  11. Awww, it's been a really long time since I've seen the show. I used to love it....it's so ridiculous. Where are you seeing the reruns?
  12. Honestly, yes, they are. You can see it writing and art alike. Look back at some of the most memorable artists of all time and if you dive into their history, you'll find that many of them had mental disorders that fueled their imaginations and artistic adventures.
  13. I really love that this is a project suggestion from Crayola. <3 I can see it being great for kids, especially ones that are a little more sensitive or stressed than others. It could be pretty therapeutic for an adult, though, too. There's no reason we can't all make our own little worry warriors.
  14. I don't think it's crazy at all. Maybe that's because I've been in the same position before and I don't really want to admit to being crazy? Heh. Mostly, though, I think college can be a rough time and if you don't actively want to change some things, then that's okay, too. You're obviously feeling the effects now and you want more friends, so how about making a conscious effort at the start of next year to make new friends and stick with it?
  15. I enjoy it. I didn't start watching until a couple years ago and I went back through to watch a bunch of the old ones, start from the beginning of the new ones, and get caught up. I'm not obsessed like a lot of Doctor Who fans are, though. I have a friend who eats, sleeps, breathes Doctor Who, it seems, which is just far too much for me personally, but works for her.
