because it's soooooooooo much easier to blame yourself than anyone else. Plus you know how you are feeling so can blame yourself rather than someone else because you don't know what they are feeling.

You know I never realised it wasn't monkey until I typed it out just then :oops:

I think you can change your name on here; other people have done it. I'm not sure how you do it, I know "rufio" and "broken_chord" have both changed their names; there might be something in the "User control panel" - if not you may need to contact a MOD if you wanted to change your name.

Good morning!

Well i went to the doctors and he is referring me to see someone to talk about it all. he doesnt understand why am so upset but agreed maybe all the events from my childhood could have something to do with it. Am stressing with some over personal problems at the moment and he thinks its just all getting to me.

I feel a little better but just wish i could turn the clock back and change things. am trying to remember that whatever gets me down can only make me stronger. Fingers crossed for me!! Am hoping all this has finally come to a head now!! I'll do all my crying and start a fresh!!

You have all been so lovely, Thank you so much, but i hope you dont mind me keep talking to you all! Its nice knowing people dont think am mad!!

See the doctor didn't laugh at you. Well done for going.

I agree with your doctor; I think everything is just getting on top of you at the minute; if you are upset then you tend to think of other things which made you upset and it just spirals the whole initial upset out of control.

*fingers crossed*

did he say how long it might take

you have to rememebr your head can get ill just like any other part of your body

the brain is amazingly powerful and incidents that aren't nice can shut certain parts of our thought process down and we don't help ourselves with continuous negative thinking

try to be positive until you get to see someone

Great result =D>

This is the start of you feeling better :D Counselling can often be hard, but if you work through things you really are much stronger and happier in the end.

Hey a new name!!!
Thank you so much!!

Well i've been crying all day today and really cant wait to start this talking to a counsellor bout my sausage brain! I wish me and brain would get on better!!
I was out last night with the girls and had alovely time but all night this horrible thing was always on my mind. When i woke up it wasnt there but all of a sudden there it is. Its like my brain is trying to tell me something and i dunno what!! I keep tellin it nothing happen and remind meself that i woke up with my knickers on and i also had a tampon in. I know nothing happened cause i would remember it, i wasnt as drunk as i think i was. The lad in question bless him thought my drink was spiked cause of how drunk i was and that is what i think is worrying me incase it was and he took advanage of me. However i think nothing happened. I just wanted to sleep!!

Do i sound stupid??

Your work can't find out about this - your medical record is confidential. It might be different if your 'problem' was going to affect your work/performance, but since it's not, it's not their business!

I would advise that you make an appointment. It's nothing to be embarassed/ashamed about - plenty of people have counselling at some point in their lives and it does not mean you're ill. Sometimes people just need someone to talk to and make them see things in a different light.

I agree with Ragdoll.

Please go and make an appointment, you may not see an instant improvement but over a few months you will.
