Hey Jekel1

Surely if you are a danger to yourself and others they should admit you - please try to stay safe until the crisis team arrive - keep talking here

It is a very weird system you've got in place there. In Spain you go to *them*.

Hope your okay Jekel1 and dont have to wait too long. Ive just been writing my journal about the same thing. Just over a week ago I was taken to an emergency appt and kept around for hours whilst they looked for a bed but non was available. Ive ended up spending all my time at the ACS. Its not brilliant but better than being in.

If you feel really bad get yourself down to A&E where a psych doc will be called. Not sure if that will help you get admitted but at least you will be cared for.

Take care

Hello Jekal 1

Hi Jekal 1,

Cameron Vale here again! The Crisis team should be called the "MERCHANT BANKER TEAM" All I can say is "Keep taking your meds!" If the Valium makes you sleepy, don't worry about it! Just do not over do you medication! What is your favourite pass time, do you like playing computer games, it does't matter what it is really! Anything to pass the time! The turnover of patients in a psychiatric hospital is quite high, so a bed should come up pretty soon.

Just keep nagging at the, "MERCHANT BANKER" team!

I will keep an eye on this web site to see if you need a little support!

Regards

Cameron Vale :)

thanks guys

feeling better today after a mad manic one this morning where i kept feeling amazing , really high for like 3 hours biut i have taken muy valium, the guy said beds are problems and the only other choice is to send me far away from my home to a different town. so they come every day and call 2 times aday , i dont know if they understand how bi polar works one min your fine the next your out planning your next venture, only this morning i wanted to start my own candle making website! he said hospital isnt out of the question there just isnt any room in the inn! i feel some how like they feel i just want to go and like being ion a phcy unit is a hoilday! well it isnt and its my last resort just cause im feeling better now i know in the morning i will want to die again. i hate this bloody depression , you never know how your going to feel one day to the next.
but thnaks guys for your support xx:grouphug:
