A quicker way to see someone may be to contact your local crisis team. Their number should come up on a google search if you type in whereabouts you are in the country along with the words mh crisis team.

In the meantime stay strong:grouphug:

Why is it everyone seems to be having the same problem?

No one wants to listen!

Why are these people doing this type of work when they obviously dont give a damn!

Ans we are all suffering!

I just dont get it!

I know its crazy isnt it...i was thinking these people who answer the phone may be told to not get involved when people call as we will drone on and on to them!they really are off putting though i am dreading my assesment!
dont think the crisis team would be interested tbh and have more important things to do!thing is when i feel ok i i think there is nothing wrong with me what was I thinking!but then i get ill again and realise that i am not good at all!its going in cycles at the moment like this....low/normal/high then low again and sometimes mixed...the highs are getting weirder (if thats a word!) and yesterday i felt really spaced out.took a few co-codamol in the afternoon and one a night so i could sort of come down and I did actually get a good sleep although still look tired as usual.i feel fine today and able to cope with everything so again I think well there mustnt be anything wrong with me but i never know when the highs/lows are gonna hiot and its really scary!sorry for ranting on but wanted to post this on here while i was feeling ok...also what if i go to my assessment and they say nothing is wrong with me and are really funny with me...i really dont want to go on my own but dont feel i would admit to everything if i was with someone i know...i really want my doctor to come with me haha as she is brill but i know thats not possible!!?? :drool:

Are you abusing Co-codamol? I only ask as it could be one explanation as to why you are currently feeling the way you are.

If not the crisis team are there for when you are feeling low and you are just as important as anyone else so next time you are in a bad place use them.

OMG!

You sound just like me!

I think Im ok then it comes back with avengance!

I am seeing a cpn today has I had a real bad en yesterday!

They always seem great, but in my experience its the psychiatrists who dont get it!

I have decided when, if ever I am well i am gona train asa a Psychiatrist and be the best I will be Private but free so I am available to all in need and help us all!

Its so upsetting to know we are all suffering and theres no where to go!

Im not suprised so many people join the angels!

How you feeling today?

Ill let you know how I get on, I actually dont feel too bad today, BRILLIANT!

Hey hun,have you been assessed or diagnosed or anything yet?Ive had a cpn in the past but to be honest have only just realised that my behaviour has never really been normal and that there is something wrong with me so she never really picked up on much as I also didnt tell her anything.bloody 18 weeks to get assessed I cant believe it!

Yeh I have always wanted to work in that type of field for some reason and would like to help others...funny how the psycs dont seem to want to help us tho!!

I am feeling ok today but kind of anxious about absolutely trivial things...godda get this under control as it escalates dosent it!really want to have a good day today but who am I to say what happens eh!

Yeh hun let me know what your cpn says and keep in touch xxx

Hi!

Ive been assessed a million times, but no diagnosis!

One time i went straight to A E The psychiatrist on duty said
' Your a good looking young girl with all your life ahead of you, just get on with it'

i obviously burst into tears, she sent me home more or less telling me to pull myself together!

I dont have much faith that I will get anywhere today, but I will let you know!

Have you had any type of drugs or therapy that has worked?
