A Note to Whoever…

found my blog by typing in “can’t smoke citalopram”.

Why… on… earth… would… you… want… to?

*Since this is an anonymous blog, and I can’t post a pic, you’ll just have to imagine the very very puzzled expression on my face for yourself. But believe me, it is puzzled*

Personality Disorder “Test”

…well, it made me laugh!

Got the idea to take it from a post on Seratonin Sister‘s blog. Have to admit I don’t want to dignify the website by linking to it myself.

Disorder Rating
Paranoid Personality Disorder: Very High
Schizoid Personality Disorder: High
Schizotypal Personality Disorder: Very High
Antisocial Personality Disorder: Moderate
Borderline Personality Disorder: Very High
Histrionic Personality Disorder: Low
Narcissistic Personality Disorder: Moderate
Avoidant Personality Disorder: Very High
Dependent Personality Disorder: Moderate
Obsessive-Compulsive Disorder: Low

So, I’m paranoid, schizotypal, borderline AND avoidant huh? What do I win?

10 Things I Learnt This Week From Reading Blogs

Sleep is eluding me, so here’s something a little bit different!

  1. That’s it’s possible to make jelly in a microwave…
  2. Why you shouldn’t store food in opened tins…
  3. That small feet can be sexy…
  4. That Danny Wallace has a new book out…
  5. That there is such a thing as art psychotherapy… (?)
  6. All about fibromalgia…
  7. That breast cancer can be fatal… (especially if you don’t believe in modern medicine)
  8. That the NHS has been around for 60 years… (but we still get ill)
  9. How to say “Happy Birthday” in Swedish…
  10. … well, actually, I couldn’t find a tenth thing. Perhaps I need to read more blogs. What did you find out this week? 😉

Completely Unrelated (but rather annoying)

Does anyone have a clue why my “Incoming Links” section on the WP Dashboard isn’t showing my incoming links? I do have them (well, one, but I’m not getting greedy), and they show in the incoming links bit of the “Blog Stats” section, and so on… but not on the main Dashboard. I noticed it worked fine on another site, so is this just a WordPress.com bug that I’m gonna have to get used to? The untidyness is really annoying me.

Swings and Roundabouts

I had productive plans for today.

Instead, I overslept, threw a tantrum at my potential new counsellor, and spent two and a half hours sobbing in a stairwell.

Well, the oversleeping is definitely noone’s fault except my own, but I think Gestalt psychotherapy may not be for me…

I’m So Happy (for a change)

Yeah, that’s an odd post title for a blog about depression, but things have been going well these past two days, and I’ve been spending so much time with people.

I actualy think this might mean that I’ve regained “normalilty”. There’s a line from a hymn – “Mornings of joy give for evenings of tearfulness, trust for our trembling, and hope for our fear” – which I used to identify with so much when I was a kid. Used to comfort myself with that thought, when I was crying my eyes out in the small hours, that it wouldn’t last forever.

And then of course I got depressed, and found that when you’re depressed, it does last forever. Ho hum.

I think I’d quite like to stop seeing my counsellor, we’re just not on the same wavelength.  The last time I told her a humourous anecdote, she said it made her want to cry. And then there was the time she forgot she was supposed to be supportive and accepting, looked very shocked, and suddenly said “but that’s not normal!“, almost as if I’d just told her I enjoyed eating dog poo (no offence meant to anyone who does, mind). I think she’s probably best at dealing with bereaved people and so on. I don’t really get the feeling she’s had a client like me before, and sometimes I feel like she’s learning more from the sessions than I am…

But on the other hand, I’m not sure what to do. I’m still on the waiting list for the young-people place (what is it with the word “young people”? I have a friend who counsels children, and she uses that phrase all the time too. It sounds so terribly PC). I figure I must be about halfway down now… it’s been almost 5 weeks, and they said it would be “8-12”. So, theoretically, it could be this month, though I think that’s being rather too optimistic.

Oh, I dunno…

I’m still here…

Just really apathetic. Tried a couple times now to write something, but didn’t. Hoping this might kickstart me into something.
