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 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.
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 ?

i just feel completely trapped. I love my my girlfriend who openly admits she doesn’t even want to touch me, let alone hug me or anything else, most of my friends have moved away or are in that process, I’ve just started a new job so I can’t leave that for at least 6 months and I’m struggling to make ends meet. All that on top of having BPD is making me feel ready to just give up

What kind of changes can you make in your life to adjust and be in a better situation?

Just overheard my flatmate, a decently close friend of mine, tell his other "mate" that his anxiety isn't legitimate and that "everyone has anxiety these days". As someone with my own issues with depression, I thought the tides were turning on awareness for this sort of thing, but not even my own place is safe from this sort of ignorance it seems.

Thank you to all of the beautiful blues here, the compassion and humanity on display even just within this thread is really special and appreciated immensely.

I get that crap at work. 'Lots of people feel pain' or 'we've all got problems', and the implication that I should just shut up and deal. Maybe it's a class thing. I know they all think I'm a stuck up posh bird. They were genuinely surprised to learn I didn't go to a grammar school, but a fairly bang average comprehensive. Even the NHS isn't safe from cretins who know jack about mental health.

(Re the reaction - I'm mad at them, not you, just for clarification.)

Being unable to enjoy anything a regular 23 year old would because any time I try it's a raging battle with my insides to stop from being sick and stop the urge to try and escape from these situations.

Even if there are highs they are all highs in between hours of stress. There's only a few people I can really switch off around and even then...

I just want to be able to enjoy life and not feel like every event, even simple social things, is a battle. It's ruining my personal relationships and I feel like I'm ruining what should be the best years of my life

Thankfully one nonce doesn't represent an entire population. It's still managing against some old stigmas, but it's slowly going away.
