i am feeling bad today all day. i am with the local mental health team, have been for six years. had a great cpn but he was moved to another area. i was then given a cpn whom i dont realy like but she wont see me at home. insisting i or my hubby drive 15 miles to see her. i suffer with agoraphobia and havent driven for about 4 years. hubby is waiting for heart surgery, and has become increasingly depressed. now he has been referred to the local mental health team. we live in the sticks which was fine when we were both well, but now we can barely function. we are both hoping to get some proper help, before it is too late.sorry to ramble on. when i speak on the phone to our son and daughter i pretend everything is ok, but it is far from ok. i think i will ring the out of hours over the weekend.otherwise i dont think i will make it through to monday. sorry folkes.:(

Hi

It's terrible you're both suffering depression and finding it hard to access help ??
that's what's wrong not enough services for folk in rural areas ??
I hope you can get proper help, can your Doctor maybe refer you to one of the mental health services or charities ( if you live in the UK )
You can get a support worker to give you emotional and practical support ??
wish I could offer more help and I hope other members will post support and good advice..

Hi starfish sounds like your both between a rock and a hard place.

Have a look at a mental health advocacy service. Cab or your gp should be able to put you in touch with them, they moniter and help with mental health service problems.

Also ask about patient transport,

Our local unit is about 5miles from the nearest bus stop and about an hours drive from where we live, I think they put it there to keep patient numbers down

Anyway
Not much help I know
But try not to get to down
