As I missed my depot last Thursday as I was waiting in for my new laptop. I didn't think they would be that bothered about it being a few days late.
They gave it to me in my bedroom .
I'm guessing they think it's important. I have my doubts due to the "I'm not mentally ill I'm just socially dysfunctional" thinking I get.

Does it bother you having a depot? Is it by agreement or CTO? Why wouldn't they wait a few days for you to go in?

Sorry if too many questions. Hope you are ok x

they used to ring the accomodation manager if i missed mine due to a bank holiday, telling me i had to go in NOW and get it, it wasn't even my fault it they didn't rearrange it when they new the next one was a bank holiday. I dunno what they thought I'd do if I didn't have it.

The depot doesn't bother me in terms of it hurting me when they give it. I was put on it by agreement as I had a bad track record of remembering to take oral meds.
I have got a little worse for being a week or two late in having it over the last 6 months or so.
At one point they just said “Oh you’re late with it” but the previous time they came round and I went to the depot clinic the next day. This time they did it here in the flat.
I have no idea why they wouldn't wait especially as it doesn't completely leave your system until you've stopped taking it for quite a few weeks.
