since lockdown I have had 1 and a half hours sleep a night. I think its been three months, my symptoms are getting more intense and strange. I am very distressed, may 28th I made a suicide attempt in hospital. I was referred by psychiatric team to psychiatry I waited weeks she didn't call she just discharged via letter. I finally was given a phone appointment last week with a different psychiatrist who discharged me after an hour. I sobbed asking for a medication review therapy or respite. he said no and told me I might as well discontinue my meds as they are not working anway. I am so suicidal. I cannot talk to my partner because theres no point. my partner just walks away from me when im crying. I have three children and a duty to them . I need someone to talk to especially someone diagnosed ptsd who has hallucinations, mania, paranoia, delusions and suicidal ideation

Hi there. I'm sorry you are struggling so much. I'm also sorry you're not getting the help you need.

I have PTSD and don't experience your symptoms except the suicidal ideation but I'm here if you need to talk.

Is there any way you can change treatment providers? I remember reading and replying to another thread you made and I do believe maybe you have more than PTSD going on.

Hugs

I'm in the US so I don't really know how things work where you are.

Do you think maybe you should go to the hospital?

I'm here. Haven't been suicidal for maybe a year now although the voices were threatening me with suicidal mood tonight...it lasted for maybe a second. I had some paranoia tonight but I have been over that in general for some years now. The mania, hallucinations and delusions *pulls up a chair* everyday.
