So frustrated

I'm sorry if this should have been posted on the RANT board, but I really feel like I need some mutual support too. I'm also sorry for the sweeping generalization...but why does the whole mental health system have to be/seem so frustrating :evil: I can't even begin to imagine how horribly frustratin...

I'm ready for my rant...deep breath here goes.

Mental health services has been involved with my brother for approx the 17 years. He has spent most of that time in various secure units/hospital and one place that looked and felt like a lunatic asylum that you might have thought died out in Victorian times. However he has also had his own flat in ...

Re: Scared of being left alone.

Thank you for the your replies. I just wanted to feed-back that my week alone was a surprising success. Usually I just sit at home in the dark waiting to burgled or attacked..not surprisingly this is a) not much fun b) pretty pointless and c) makes me so anxious that I become hysterical. Not this ti...

Re: very scared of what might happen

It must be frustrating not to be able to do the usual things you do, but maybe you just have to accept that right now you can't, and try not to push yourself too much. When I was at my lowest even the smallest jobs such as putting on a pair of tights/making a cup of tea felt impossible. Everything f...

Re: Scared of being left alone.

Thank you for the reply. I think I just feel unsafe when i'm on my own, in any situation. I guess I just think that my boyfriend offers protection and will keep me safe, even though he is a big softie. I grew up with domestic abuse on a regular basis, so wonder if this is why I feel like I always ha...
