Feeling Anxious and Somewhat Desperate

Well, I had a good night's sleep and woke up pretty peaceful but once the day is underway I start to feel sick to the stomach. Seeing psych at 1pm this afternoon, gonna maybe ask if I can go to one of the Recovery Houses they have in my borough. I've never been to one before, they're a relatively new thing and not heard great things about them tbh, but I think it might just be reassuring to not be totally on my own for a little while. There used to be a really good Crisis Unit really local to me but sadly it closed down...I miss it greatly at times like this. Also gonna see if he will prescribe me a few benzos.

Hey Nikita, thanks for the reply. I have to take each minute as it comes at the moment. I spoke to a guy earlier at a local suicide support residential place (it's a small charity staffed mostly by volunteers) that might be able to offer me a short stay (though I am not currently suicidal thoughts of it have been floating around my head for a few years now). He was so nice, and I felt able to be fairly articulate about what I'm going through , it was a helpful conversation and when I hung up I had calmed down a lot and no longer feel sick or very anxious.

I would rather go to this place than the Recovery House if I can, I like the sound of it better. Less institutional and medical model, more talking and making connections, that's kind of what I need right now. Get my confidence back with people, though it means constantly challenging fears of rejection, stigma etc.

Thank you for the offer to talk, I am still finding my way around the forum slowly and I might PM at some point! Hugs to you
