hi, been hanging around for a while, decided i should say hello.

erm, recently diagnosed w/ major D + psychosis (phew, sounds bad just writing it...), been out of work for two or three months due to this (still waiting to here back from a couple of potential employers) and nearly abandoned degree, friends, relatives, all of it; on a couple of occasions too. Don't think thats the last diagnosis i'll here either, pretty sure i've been manic on at least one occasion...but self diag is a bad idea from what i here so..

found the NHS to be pretty poor on mental health going on my experience (judgemental, disbelieving), of the six or seven times i've been to my GP i've been prescribed platitudes, patronised and generally fobbed off at least five of those times. While i understand the limited resources available to the NHS I feel i've done my part (and more) concerning my ment health :mad:

anyway, hi again, comforting to know there are people out there who understand this kind of thing, hope i can give something back and post a few more times

Hi Benkenobi, welcome to the forum :welcome:. Sorry about how you've found the NHS - but as you look around you'll find an amazing number of people who have had similar experiences. Hope that you are getting better support now!
Do keep posting and enjoy the support available here.

Hi Ben and welcome to the forum. Just join in where you feel comfortable and you'll soon get into to the swing of things. This is a special place and I would have been at a loss if it hadn't been for some of the people these past few days.

Thanks for the welcome everyone

and, yes, I am a little bit of a SW fan (this is one of the few times I allow the inner geek to come to the fore :p)
