We changed back to one I have been on in the past and although the number and urgency of the thoughts decreased, I did start to self harm in...

    Chronic pain/Fibromyalgia?

    Does anyone have any experience with this? My GP refuses to settle on a diagnosis as I've been referred to the "pain team" - only I've got two months to wait until I see anyone there. They keep cancelling, moving appointments... GP also refuses to give me any medication because "we've tried...

    Not sure what to do anymore

    I've been super low recently to the point I've come very close to attempting to take my own life again. I'm also finding it very hard to deal with what I feel is rejection from others, I have constant fear that everyone is leaving me all the time whether it be the people in the mental health...

    Hi all, It's been a very long time since I accessed this forum; maybe theres a lesson to take from that but hey ho, hindsight is a wonderful thing.

    I have been working in my current job for two years now. I left for two months to start a new job. However, I found the new job – it was a very toxic environment. Management talking about other staffs confidentiality in the office. Gossiping about others. I was still covering overtime shifts for...

    Running Away to the Seaside

    Yesterday morning I woke a 03:30 and was psychotic. I got it into my head that, instead of going to work that day (which I was dreading) I would run away to the seaside. So I booked a ticket on the earliest train (06:03), packed a bag and headed for the station - wearing just a loin cloth, an...

    Thanks

    Just to update, I'm ok, just about. As you know, I put out a call for help on the forum and I understand that you guys couldn't really do much for me at the time, I managed to get help via a friend on FB (facebook) and an ambulance came plus the Police who had to break in. I was taken to Bedford...

    Mental health team don’t believe me

    As the title says the mental health team in my area don’t believe me as I have managed to hold it together on and off for a few years and they say someone with schizophrenia can’t do such things. They said that the voices I hear and hallucinations I see are a result of stress and that there is...

    Today I told a family member
