What do you do if you have no faith or trust....and are totally scared of your CMHT?

How do you work with them? :cry2:

Hi Mami,
Tell them how scared you are of them, they should help you feel more at ease.
I'm scared too that they'll section me for no reason, your not alone in feeling like this.
They have the power that can be scary I think, all you can do is engage with services and hope it helps.
You've had bad experiences, that wasn't your fault.
Take care

Thank you Mayflower :hug:

I'm not just scared that they have the power to section me. I'm just totally scared of them. After all that's happened I am convinced they are out to harm me......or even kill me.

My name is down to start DBT again......how am I suppose to open up and talk about things to whoever will be my one to one?

I get so distressed every time I'm suppose to see my cc or expect him to call......or anything to do with them. And it's not just him....it's the whole team. I'm convinced they are out to get me. :cry2:

Hi Mami,
I'm sorry your feeling this way, it must be a very anxious time for you.
It's part of your illness that your feeling like that, wish I could reassure you that they won't kill you.
Glad someone from drop in can go with you to see your cc.
I know opening up is hard, especially when people let you down. I hope you get better.
DBT I hope will help you this time, give it a try you never know it might just help.
I'm always here to listen.
Take care

Hi, I'm so sorry you're feeling scared. It's an awful feeling. The person you see should understand that patients get scared. I agree with other posts that telling them you feel scared should help. It could well be the illness making you feel scared, when chemicals in the brain go slightly wrong we get a feeling of dread from that, but it's not really real, so it could be you feel scared because of that? Anyway, I hope you feel a bit better soon.

Thank you for your replies Mayflower and Pixieb :hug:

I'm finding it really hard to engage with them.

Maybe I'll go to drop-in on Tuesday and try and explain to the staff member how I feel about them and the effect they have on me. She already knows I don't trust them.....and understands my reasons why. That is why she's volunteered to come with me to my appointment on Thursday.....she's been before too.

I'm finding it really hard to open up to them and tell them exactly how I feel or what's going on inside because I have no faith in my cc that he'll help me....or any of them.

I've been hurt and let down by them so much in the past......I can't allow myself to go through that again.
