So I self harmed after months being clean the other day. I took myself to hospital to get a mental health assessment as I felt rather unstable. Now , the self harm wasn't severe, but I was having suicidal ideation while at the hospital. I was taken to a Major unit in A&E. So I was expecting things to happen rather quick... I was fucking wrong. I ended up sitting in a chair FOR 12 HOURS. From 7pm until 8am the following morning, I sat in a chair injuring myself feeling utterly worthless. I was given paracetamol for complaining of a headache which was really voices and bad thoughts. 12 hours I was overlooked just because I didn't seem severe enough to the A&E doctors. Mental health is not visible most of the time. People need to realise this.
