Anxiety and self admission



New member
Mar 22, 2015
Hiya this is my first time posting so please bear with me. I self admitted myself to hospital last Saturday due to suicidal thoughts and self harm, I have been in nearly a week but due to go home on Monday :) As long as I can remember I have suffered with anxiety but it has been really bad over the past 18 months ish where I have been having frequent panic attacks and self harming. I've been on countless anti depressants and I've always been told that I've just got depression but since been admitted I had a psych assessment on Monday and they told me today that I could possibly have bpd but need to go back to my normal doctors (because I'm at uni, my doctors is in a different area to where I am now) for a formal assessment.

Anyone know what this assessment will be like, as the not knowing is stressing me out :(

Hi Scatty_bex :welcome: to forum.

It's good to know that you are getting care in hospital and that you're closer to the knowledge of a possible condition.
For me, my diagnosis helped me get more of an understanding as to the symptoms i sometimes experience.

From what i remember, my asessment was about an hour long and i was asked various questions.

I hope the atmosphere for you will be gentle.

With love,
