Yum, love Chinese food.

Happy, have been struggling with fatigue but got quite a lot done, mostly nice stuff like seeing friends and going to Qi Gong.

Proud that I got through the 10 mile walk yesterday - it’s a very long time since I did that sort of distance.
Also when we stopped at pub on the way back I stuck to soda and lime saying that I don’t drink :?

Sad/angry, the professor I've been emailing has refused to see me, feeling quite low, was tempted to have a drink but managed to stay sober.

He said I needed a referral from a psychiatrist and that he'd probably agree with the diagnosis and he couldn't take me on as a patient.

Feeling suicidal, nobody listens to me, including Jim. Sick of being told how I feel.

I'm really sorry to hear that, Ruby <:)> <:)>

Is there anyone else you could talk to - even the Samaritans, just as a sounding-board? I found them helpful (by email) a couple of years ago.

Keep talking here too, of course ;)? <:)>

Are there any support groups out there you could connect (or reconnect) with? It's a bit like alcohol problems, only those who have them really get it!
