SWIM has recently been through a lot of big changes and has not coped with them very well, to put it one way they have recently developed some minor issues with leaving the house during the day, some long standing issues with alcohol, and they are struggling with uni even more than they did last year (this is a very bad thing).
Currently SWIM has no idea where they are headed, but it seems they may be on the verge of making some serious decisions in the next few months about what the next few years are gonna involve...
SWIM has either lost or is too far away from the 5 people they would consider to be closest to (wether or not these people would/did consider them the same way is questionable), and is scared SHITLESS.
SWIM has just been venting/moaning. Things will look up for them soon. They hope.
