I'm sectioned at the moment and away from home. I've been manhandled and restrained and jabbed and it's been awful. I'm still waiting on an advocate and despite being honest with the consultant about my overdoses and being suicidal he is talking about discharging me next week. I'm not getting any help here. I feel so hopeless and alone.

Sorry to hear that you are going through such a difficult time. Have they made any plans for your support when you are discharged. Are you on a section 2 or 3? If you are on a section 3 then I think that you are entitled to section 117 aftercare.

I'm on a 2 at the moment but in the past I have been in section 3s. Even though I don't want to be here i realise I need to stay and get the care I need but the doctor doesn't care. He says he can't stop me from killing myself and he'll probably discharge me next week. There is no hope and there's no care here and my life is over.

Why do you want to kill yourself?
I hope you don't mind me asking that.

Hi JoJo,
I'm so sorry to hear of your difficulties, I've been restrained, cuffed and badly bruised by police. Simply because I didn't want to go to hospital.
I know how you feel.
Your dr is a disgrace, can you ask for a second opinion ask your GP when your discharged.
An advocate will help you.
I hope you get care, I care and will support you as best as I can.
I was in a very dark place, life has got better for me.
Have you tried any therapy?
Please don't end your life.
Take care honey

Thank you so much for your reply and for making me feel a little less alone. I'm also sorry to hear you've had awful experiences too. I'm not sure I'm allowed a second opinion but one of the staff I actually like is coming to talk to me tomorrow and hoping to speak to ward manager Monday and get an advocate but everything seems so uncertain. GP doesn't care and CPN is useless. I feel like I have no support anymore. I'm scared. Thank you for your support x

You are entitled to a second opinion I hope you get to speak to someone.
It's terrible how we have to fight for care.
Take care

I don't know how to get a second opinion and I don't think they'll let me. I'm scared. And I feel hopeless.

Hi JoJo,
You could complain by letter or email to the trust and say you want a second opinion. An advocate will help you do this.
I know it's scary, I'm here for you.
It's your depression talking.
The ward should have complaint forms.
Take care

I've already contacted PALS and CQC. I'm getting nowhere. I want an advocate but not sure when I'll get allocated. I'll probably be discharged by then.

we are all stuck in a fraud racket unfounatly, just sent around in circles, keeping the above at the top, just mere slaves, with out no voice, just left to scream on our own, I tried the care quality commission, unfounatly they are no help, the gp told me to talk to them, unfounatly there is nobody to legally repsent you, my ex as it in for me, im sure if he gets paid to cover up the abuse he did to me, by going to the court of protection, for pyscho surgery he will, unfounatly the authorties want me in there care system, they have had 17yeRS OF ME, WHAT IS THERE TO LOOK FORWARD TO????/
