Hi all,

I am at a stage apart from meds, I am pretty much alone in mental health support from the NHS.

Sometimes you just got to bite your lip, give yourself a slap and pick yourself up because no one else is going to.

This is what I am trying to do by keeping a job, keeping active (mental and physical) and sometimes you just gotta do it, you have no option.

If I just let it all out and my personalities came out I would be in prison or a hospital right now either one.

Come on guys pick yourself up only you can do it.

Feeling in a similar place! Just written to my care coordinator politely informing her that I do not want to continue with her support. I feel like I need to do it myself, just hope that I can.

Good one mate, but make sure if you need meds you keep taking meds!

Makes no difference to me.
Support or no support, its all me anyway.

Support is just a - "Have you tried yoga or mindfulness" or "Are you sleeping and eating alright, going for walks?" - support.

Pretty much sums up my help support team.

And half the time when my supporters have bad days, that means Im going to go through hell.
So sometimes I wonder what the point is.
Even though there has been some great times in between, where I have felt really good and progressed.

Buut..I probably wont last long. Because frankly picking myself up everyday, 100 times a day, a million times in life and I can look forward to doing that for the rest of my life?

Nah. Not gonna happen.

Your idea is great on paper though. Fine intention.

It's hard to find people through services like that that genuinely have skill and natural nurturing abilities. I had a CBT therapist who was crap, she was a nice lady but I knew everything she was telling me. I think you are all amazing and tough warriors. Going it alone is strength indeed! Credit where credit is due my friends!
