i am under the mental health team but i think i need therapy x thanks
See the team and explain that. Their is usually a wait but if you explain how bad things are they can hurry it thru. Ive been wanting trauma therapy for years but as I’d tried it unsuccessfully in the past they were hesitant but i kept on nagging at them . I had to wait 6 months but honestly Lu it was the best thing i ever did. I wanted to pack it in so many time but my psychologist was brilliant and kept saying ‘just try one more week’ then one week things started to fall into place . And now I’m not self harming or suicidal and have reduced my medication . So go and pester them until they say yes

Hi Lu,
I'm so sorry about you, Amy and your aunt. Phone the crisis team, I know you didn't like them much in the past. It's worth another try.
I hope you feel much better very soon, hugs for you, Amy and love to your aunt.
Take care

Sorry to hear about this Fairy Lucretia

I completely understand how overwhelming things can get.

Guess hurting yourself could relieve the pressure. Hope you are feeling a bit better.
