    In a bit of a dilemma re: CMHT/CPN

    So as some of you probably already know, I was discharged from EI in December. All went fine, was glad to get them off my back.

    Hi, I'm Loretta

While I do believe that without scientific backing that these...

    I'm in the absurd position of being ashamed of something I haven't even done. I received an attack out of the blue from an ex boyfriend. It was a messy break-up years ago now and earlier this year - about 7 months ago I guess - I contacted him through FB for the first time in 5 years to admit I...

    Hi - yesterday I took an overdose. I rang GP and a friend took me to appointment. She was nice about it and changed my Meds but we could carry on like this forever without me getting better. She said she'd ring the Crisis team (if I want her to?!) and CMHT I have recently been "under" I slept...

    Mental health team letting me down

    I feel the mental health team is seriously letting me down. Recently I was referred to the home treatment team but after assessment they decided I wasn't in "sufficient crisis" to warrant their help. I don't know how they determined this when I was so distressed I could barely speak! Anyway...

    I am a moron

    I damned well blew 280 pounds gambling today. It was payday and I had 3070 pounds in the bank and was all excited and took 200 in thinking I could just wager a hundy and probably treble it or stop if I lost it. Sweet effing Mary. Now I have 2800 and will need another 250 of it to live on so...
