Officially back :) - July 2nd 2018, 06:51 PM

I know I have been around more the last few weeks but wanted to make it official.

I'm feeling better compared to how I was back in April. I'm still not 100% sure what caused that 'episode' but I'm putting it down to lack of sleep, a lot of stress, and not knowing how to handle my emotions resulting in possible dissociation/break from reality. Coming out of it was hard because I realised how I had been towards others and was ashamed, even though I know I didn't have a whole lot of control over the situation. Doctor said depression and anxiety, counsellor says PTSD and NHS worker referred me for group CBT.

There's still some stress in the background but I'm trying to get back into exercise, mindfulness and continuing counselling. I've even applied for a part time course at college to get me back out there.

So yeah, it's good to be back in orange again

I am glad your doing better. Welcome back.

We may be picking up the pieces here on after,

We are shaped by the light we let through us,
We break fast, cause we are glass.
Cause we are glass.

I'm sorry you had to go through all of that, but I'm glad you're feeling better now and that you feel ready to come back. Take your time getting settled back in, and feel free to get in touch if you need anything.

Hey,


I am glad that you took time to take care of yourself and that you are getting some help. I hope that the CBT will end up helping to some degree. i found CBT helpful when I went to a therapist who practiced that; I hope you find it helpful as well. Please let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Thanks all!

Update: ufortunately I have limited access to teenhelp as we don't have internet at the moment (phone line thing got jammed in the socket and is now unusable until we can get a new one) and I only have my phone. So I'll still be around just can't do an awful lot at the moment

Update 2: Internet is back, yay!

I'm really glad you are alright and are back. I know a lot of us were worried about you and hoping you were okay.

Thank you for updating us. Stress can definitely make a big impact and get to a person. I hope you are able to find ways to reduce some of the stress in your life. Perhaps this part-time college course will be interesting and different to be a positive change. Please know you can reach out anytime you need support or just someone to talk to.
