Hey Elli

Hi Eli.

Went out for a few drinks with a mate last night. My head hurts this morning...

*plonks tea and some painkillers in front of Ben-o*

Morning all, how's everyone doing today? What does the weekend hold?

I have the meeting with the psychiatrist today but it'll be totally fine. I am so much better there's no risk of being made to up meds now

Planning a run later, have this weird feeling that I won't be able to do it. Dunno why my breathing was great last time.

Morning all,

Sorry I not been in. I think I have caught some dredded bug hot cold etc.

I agree with you all, running does improve your your own mental health.

SOLB thats ok about not reading my post in other room, itis very deep. Its why I didn't post it in here.

Hope your all ok.

Try not to catch this bug you all, its not nice.

Hey Sinbad 

Urghh to the  bug, hope you feel much better soon. 

Thanks for understanding about the post, are you coping OK with not being able to run while you're feeling poorly? 

I've just been to see the consultant psychiatrist. I don't have to go back for another three months  

I'm a bit worried about about a friend today so not having a party just yet but feeling  stupidly relieved about the psychiatrist even though I knew the appointment would be fine. Strange girl!

I'm off swimming in a bit

Just found this thread and just wanted to wish you all a lovely weekend!...I live in Germany, but Im a doing a 12km race on Sunday called "Butterkuchen Lauf"...("Butter cake race!!), only because you get free cake at the end!!.. If that's not motivating then I don't know what is!

Take care all!

Hi Liz *waves enthusiastically knocking over her tea in the process*

I'd run for cake too, I love the sound of the Butterkuchen Lauf ... if we look hungry enough will you pinch us some cake too? 

I feel like I should run tonight, but I'm feeling really lazy. I'm bored but not getting on with anything, I wonder if my motivation will arrive or if I'll remain wailing like a teenager that I'm bored.

Hi all,

Yes i miss running, its my fix to get me through the day.

By eck I read your post from other dday. Thanks for taking time to read mine. I totally understand where your coming from.

I know the feeling  SOLB.

Does anybody know any good mental health chat rooms? In particular relating to bpd and pts? I have looked but doesn't really seem any out there.

I couldn't vouch for any of them but a quick goofle found this

That's weird, Bear linked this

You could also contact Sane to ask them for information on relevant groups both on and offline. They are really helpful and do both emotional support and offer practical information. They have phone and email support (though it takes 5 days to get an email back)

12/10/2012 at 17:34

and I meant google. SOLB's kindly posted the link

Hi all,

Thanks for that XFR Bear, I have registered with Sane. The Psych central seemed to be wanting to push meds on you etc. But with Sane I'm not sure if I have become a user or supporting them with fund raising etc. I will try send them or ring them over the weekend or Monday.

I did try myself, but got absolutely no where.

Hope your all ok?

That sounds like a good idea sinbad, hope you get some support. 

I feel really sick tonight, I don't think it was just lazitus after all  I am a bit run down still so might have caught a bug but it might be exhaustion after working so hard to be better for the psych meeting. I've not really let off with the exercise and challenging things and with the hallucinations and stuff all hanging about its been a pretty tough few weeks. I wonder if now the pressure is off and I know I'm better it's all caught up with me.

Could be SOLB it's common for teachers to get ill in the first week of the holidays
