Thanks, Huffy - I did write a Dredd script but it's dire. Still, at least it's words on a page, which is something.

My best to you, Hawkie - I'm sure you'll get through it, especially with the support of your fellow Squaxx.

Don't beat yourself up, there's a world out there trying to do that.

I like that one, thank you.

Thanks guys, it’s a rough time right now and I don’t feel completely in control. I’ve been musing if there’s a connection between the systematic programming of ‘Higher Education = Happiness’ in schools under the Blairites in schools during the early 2000’s is linked to the chronic anxiety, depression, general dependency on having to constantly have a clear direction or else your a failure mindset.

It’s like i’ve never known a time where I wasn’t working towards some kind of qualification and for all the good I believe it will bring me in future, in the short term ‘cramming’ culture has only brought me misery.

This year has been a bit rough, for the last couple of months at least. I can just about manage my mental health when it's low but one unfortunate outcome is I seem to be isolating myself more than I ever have before.... I have lots of friends, luckily, but I've had no desire to be social or even meetup with anyone for a long time now.

Sorry to hear that. Maybe you should start looking for professional help? There are good ones out there, particularly the CBT ones in my limited experience.
