    I just really really hated everything. I have anxiety anyway but it just became horrendously bad during it. Even without being so scared I just really didn't like it at all. I could go along the road changing gears and stuff like that but I just despised every second. I feel so useless :(

    From what you say, you are able however it look more like mind set. I know it is easier said than done. If you need to learn the skills of driving then get into a positive mind set.

    I had to do this for one caretaking area. Learning how to clear a backed up drain. A skill i did not look forward to learning, who want to be in a rubber suit waist deep in human.... excretion.

    I guess :( don't think this mindset is going to change though, I just cry even thinking about going for another lesson. I think a possibility may be learning in an automatic and see if I still hate everything.
    Thanks everyone :)

    To be honest, my first few driving lession where brown trousers times for me. I hated it, then i got into the swing of it.
    I now drive anything from a mid sized family car through 4x4s to 16 seater minibuses and 7 ton vans. And holds Rospa gold for driving.

    Not bad for someone who said "i can't do this" for 4 lessons as my nerves where shot.

    I'm 34 and I've never driven a car in my life. You don't have to drive if you don't want to. ;)
    If it's not on the tube map, it's not worth going to.

    If I lived in London I wouldn't bother trying to learn haha. It would be so useful to be able to drive with nursing placements at weird times of the day for me in a few months but I'm not going to force myself into something that makes me so upset.
    It's ridiculous how over emotional I got man, cried all day yesterday.

    I see no downside to learning automatic if I find that works for me. May as well make it as easy as possible for myself. :)

    The only downsides that would really affect you is, not being able to borrow a friends car. And auto are harder to find second hand and more expensive.

    As anyone who has read the shoutbox tonight will know, I am doing my product design gcse at the moment, which is designing and building a hedgehog house. Because my teacher decided to start our project half a term later than the other two classes, everyone is behind (resulting in me having to get to school at 6:45 am tomorrow and stay an hour after school every day last week). I have been doing some of the written work tonight as the deadline for the written work is 8:30 am tomorrow. This is stressful enough without my parents "helping". I keep telling them that I have done my drawing (of a birdhouse for some reason) wrong (we have to draw in isometric, but I didn't know this when we first drew it), yet they are telling that I don't have time to redo it because i have left it until the last minute like I always do (I had very little choice this time due to having limited information before). I'm so stressed now. They have been really annoying me for weeks now, and I am almost happy about staying extra at school to get away from them. They have been totally unsupportive in everything I've done and keep putting me down. They are also to over protective. "No you can't have Facebook, who knows what sort of things you will look at"

    I'm tired of being told what to do. Can't they just leave me alone sometimes?

    I'm feeling so down at the moment, I keep seeing cute couples everywhere and I'm really not coping well with that. I'm starting to feel really alone. I've got friend's etc. But I just want someone special... :pensive:

    @Joseph It takes time to find that special someone, you want to spend the rest of your life with.

    I can empathise with you, Joe. It would just be really nice to have a boyfriend: someone to support and who can support me with my struggles, as well as having someone I can feel close to who is my own age. I can't say I can call many of my college "friends" particularly close, apart from one or two.

    Sorry to hear that Alice :( it's a really struggle "going back to square one". Keep your head high and remember that you can do it! Hope you make it out of "there" soon.

    I've got a redundancy/TUPE hanging over my head that is confirmed to take place 31/03/16 but with absolutely no information about what's happening!! It's a massive white elephant

    I've been there. TUPE sucks. They tried to spin it as "you're not being made redundant, you still have a job... You are just choosing not to relocate [hundreds of miles away], so you get nothing." Thankfully our union managed to put a stop to that. Only good thing they've ever done.

    Best of luck!

    Just feeling really down, everything has come to a head and a problem from the past has taken hold once more. Don't know how to cope with it either. Can I hide permanently?

    I should be feeling great... my business is growing rapidly, I've got a fantastic extended family that I'm generally really close to (especially after recent sad events), I work in the best city in the world (in my view) - but in truth I currently am dying inside, and reading in Slack about the events of the weekend this morning has just made me realise - in a bid to get my business running, keep a full time job going to sustain myself in the meantime, and deal with everything going on here, I've neglected the people corporately most important of all - my friends :(
