I have been pushed from pillar to post and back again. I have depression (and possibly Bipolar) and feel so unsupported from everyone. Why Why Why??
If you have a broken leg, tumour etc you get treatment quickly and are given lots of support - so why is it we seem to not be priority??
Mt GP said that he can only channel me to the right people and in his words the help is "crap!!" Great help.
I have had 1 assesment for councelling, and am now on a waiting list, 3 months later. I got so mad one day, a friend took me to the doctors, to be told i couldnt be deen - go to the walk-in, the sent me to A & E and was waiting for 5 hours for the on call Phyc, only to be told to go to my doctor and get signed off work!!
I have an assesment due in the next few weeks for some psycologist (???) and was recommended some open door councelling. I called and they were great - fantastic actually. The lady on the phone remembered my name etc when I called back to make an app.
So i go along today - and guess what - "I dont have anything in out diary, are you sure it was today?"
WTF - Yes i have the right day - Will someone PLEASE help me. After becoming hysterical, someone took pity on me and had a brief chat.
On top of that, I was also "lured" into work for a cuppa and cake, to me put in a meeting with the manager and told some ctrap i didn't understand, i think it was something to do with my sick pay bla bla bla and basically "Don't be shocked when you open your pay slip!!!" GREAT
What are people supposed to do with no support. Family, friends and employers don't fully understand what we are going thru and I am desperate to get help and get back to "normal"
Thats my rant over for today.......
