Had mental health team and police out last night due to how my mental health has been, times have been really hard of late
I'm so sorry.
I've been saying it for a long time, social media is a disaster for mental health, now it appears that young people presenting with mental illness will be asked about their social media use. I deleted my FB and Twitter accounts a year and a half ago and still feel great about it, I haven't had anxiety or even felt low since, one of the best decisions I ever made. I'm so happy without that distraction. https://www.google.ie/amp/s/amp.theguardian.com/society/2019/mar/30/nhs-psychiatrists-young-patients-social-media-mental-health
Preach. Twitter is a hellhole. I completely swerved it when I was at my parents' last week and I didn't miss it. It just makes me angry and depressed. The dregs of humanity are on there.

Also, Brexit is making me wish I'd kept the Oxycontin tablets I picked up off the street, because at least I'd be able to eat the whole lot and then go to sleep and never wake up.

It honestly feels that there's no way out and loads of Brexiters think this fact is hilarious.

Relax, no one knows how it’ll affect us yet, no point flapping before it happens.

If it even happens.

Brexit is a mess, but ending a life is worse than anything by far. Whatever happens brexit won't be as bad as the clanging bells make out. Europe will still exist 22 miles away and they will want to trade because they're simple humans and so they want our money. The sun will still rise each day and that day is there to make of it what you will. There is no magic formula to life, no ideal way to spend it, so spend it in a way that makes you want to live it.

Whatever you do protect your life .

It will happen and it looks like it's going to be a No Deal.

What is legit making me suicidal is how many Brexiters think chronically ill/disabled people going without meds is funny. I mean, I know a lot of people think we're worthless pieces of meat but it's not much fun having it spelled out for me, you know? I didn't choose to be in pain all the time or depressed. I don't understand why it's such a big joke.

People ridicule what they don't or can't understand, always have done, always will do. It's human nature, don't take it personally. Most of them, if they knew the consequences and effects of the lack of medication would stop and feel foolish.

If you're worried sbout a shortage, speak to your doc about it and see if you can get extra prescriptions before brexit. It will only be a short hiatus due to logistics. Businesses are not politicians, they will still be desperate to sell to any country that waves cash.

Why would you be going without meds? The world isn’t cutting us adrift.

I've just got this month's script, so am fine for now. I've also started stockpiling food.

I tend to take things extremely personally, which is why I try to avoid kopites on social media.
Taking stuff personally is a quick source of stress. Far better to allow stuff to flow around you.

Please don't take our discussion over Jordan Pickford personally - I was just airing thoughts for discussion, as I am prone to. There was absolutely no intention to score points.

Delays and shortages because my meds are manufactured in Germany. And I hate uncertainty and I hate feeling like I'm falling with no end in sight. That is how Brexit feels to me right now. I'm also scared of losing my job and possibly having to go back into sex work to support myself. I used to be a cam girl. I made pornographic clips for a fetish site. It wasn't that fun, tbh.

Btw I'm not arsed what other people think of Pickford, I like him, Dave and others hate him. I'm not going to stop liking him just because of GOT. I mean, I still love Jags.

I know it can’t be fun for you, having to relive your former career if it wasn’t something you were necessarily doing by choice, but let it be an example to you of how you did what was needed to get by at that point in your life.

Sounds like you’ve come too far, through too much to entertain such dark thoughts over something like Brexit. One way or another, we’ll know soon what kinds of challenges we’re going to have to face, and then face them we will! If you need a bit of help from random Evertonians online to get through some of them, you know where we are!

It's very hard to see a better way if you use politics as a guide to life. My view is both political parties have messed up Britain, but until we we get rid of them we'll have to just wait. If we'd got rid of them earlier the world would be a much better place.

Question for people that have come off meds, I've probably done it quicker than i planned to but feel really good except for a constant feeling of what i guess is vertigo. Anyone else had this ?
