Cheers for all the messages of support, firstly.
Secondly, things are on the up:
Best school friend is now back home, and will be here till late Sept. Not sure why he's come back home, but I'm not complaining! We're planning an adventure of some sorts before he leaves.
My sleeping pattern is slowly improving. Had sleeping tablets fri and sat, which helped, but forewent them last night and had better sleep than in the past.
I've come to realise I'm lucky to have a job at all, even if it is just in a supermarket. There's hundreds of people locally who'd swap places. I should be grateful for what I have. Plus, the people I work with are pretty ace.
No real improvement on the local social life, but as I'm working the next 9 days straight it's not like I have time to dwell on that. But uni people have started getting back in touch over the weekend. I think they secretly read DiS.
So yeah - good stuff! :) Anyone else's situation improved since Friday?
