Re: Why

I want to talk to you or else I wouldnt be replying but I know its not the same and it can be really hurtful feeling ignored by friends. It can cause you to question and doubt yourself, lower your self esteem. Its hard. I hope you can find a way to look inside and see that you have value because you...

Re: taking medication

Thank you. It is tricky. They cant force me to take them but always seem to convince me into it. Mostly because I cant be bothered to fight them on it.

Re: Need help, and sorry for power posting today

With ESA I think you can do "permitted work" of up to a certain amount, I think, and earn a bit extra ontop of your benefits, might be worth looking into? My advice is dont rush into this. You have a lot on your plate atm. Self employment can lack stability. When there isnt enough work on ...

Re: Meeting Over and not good outcome.

Sorry to hear your meeting went badly. Dont give up. There is still hope on the horizon that you are getting an advocate. I know next week can feel a long time away when suffering but try to get through it a bit at a time. minute by minute if you have to. xxx

taking medication

I am currently medication free. My psychiatrist prescribed me venlafaxine and lithium last week and I am yet to start taking either. I am not sure that I want to take them. To use meds or not to use meds has become an almost philosophical debate in my head. I dont think I need medicating. I've tried...
