Found this forum just yesterday and spent loads of time reading through it so far! Thought I should introduce myself, though I don't tend to be too vocal in forums and the like. I'm 41, female, married (to the most incredibly supportive guy) with no kids, and I live on the East Coast of England. Lots of mental health problems in my family, and I, myself, was an abused child. Diagnosed personality disorder and depression, plus post-traumatic stress, and loads of other bits and pieces. The MH team where I live now are about a gazillion times better than the MH team where I grew up and lived for many years, and I am lucky enough to now have an excellent Care Manager. I am currently on Incapacity Benefit and DLA. I even have a free bus pass - which would be great if I wasn't so terrified of actually using public transport!

Life is very tough at the moment for many reasons, not least of which because my husband is currently in hospital nearly a hundred miles away and I am completely alone night and day with only the Crisis Team to check on me - no friends where I live now. Still, I keep battling on like so many others do.

Hope to meet some good, understanding folks here. Thanks for having me! :)

Thank you, everyone, for the warm welcome! :)

I've just had some great news, my husband's finally been discharged from hospital and is on his way home!

Thanks again for welcoming me!

Hello Jinko and welcome to the forum. As you're probably finding out there are loads of understanding people here - I've found a big chunk of my support team here and have grown addicted to the place (in a very good way!).

Take care,
Honey, xx
