So I saw my boyfriend for the first time in months…and felt numb the whole time he was here. So, I saw my boyfriend for the first time in months. I was really looking forward to seeing him, but noticed even before he arrived that I wasn’t all that keen on him coming. I’m in […]
I’ve fallen into an old, familiar habit as of late. Will I rebound out? So I’ve been having problems with my relationahip for the past few months. My partner and I have spoken very little owing to the fact that we’re both very busy with exam preparation. Well, that’s really making it sounds like we […]
Feeling ok….it feels nice So when depression hits I feel like I just can’t sleep enough or eat enough carbs (sugar, bread, crisps). I also feel heavy and like I can’t do anything well. I also can’t imagine going to the gym. And then when I feel better I feel completely the opposite. Right now […]
Ever think of praise as a bad thing? It can be… So I think a big ‘Thank You’ is in order to everyone who commented on my last blog. Your comments were all really supportive and helpful to me. In the last posting I was really upset about my flatmate announcing that he wanted to […]
So my flatmate (and good friend) wants to move out at the end of the contract in June… Right, so I’ve mentioned before that I like my flatmates. That’s still true. I think they’re great. So yesterday my one flatmate – he’s a second year student – came to me and said that he was […]

Two weeks and a few days until I go home….and I’m worried! So, as those who’ve read my story will know I’m not from these parts – I’m an international student here in the UK. So, this time of year I spend a solid 3 weeks online looking to book a flight to go home. […]
To be counseled or not to counseled…that is my dilemma! So in my last blog I mentioned that i went to the GP and was referred to see a counsellor. Well, I got the referral letter the other day and now I have to call them to make the appointment. However, I’m now doubting if […]
Good…getting better….but still not great Ok, here we go again. I tried updating my blog a few weeks back but my update was lost in to the deep dark world of the internet, never to be found again! So here we go again. So, I’ve been doing much better this year. Those of you who […]
Or maybe a better question to ask is “how do I get out of here?” I have to ask myself – what am I doing here on this website? I’m reasonably intelligent, I come from a good, loving family, and I have amazing friends. I have many hobbies and interests. I have a balanced view […]
