Re: Depression/ attention seeking

As difficult as it much be for you as her daughter I'm sure that your mum is "unwell" mentally or emotionally. A healthy person wouldn't be behaving in such a way. It's sad that no one has offered to work with her and discover the root of her problem, rather just dismiss her as having some...

Re: Since I was 13, I have planned to die at 40. I'm 29 now.

Why die when you're 40? Have you tried to get any help, counselling or meds?
You may feel differently if you discuss this with a therapist, someone who can keep confidentiality and hel you to work things out in your head

Re: Don't know what to do

Just get over it?? That's helpful! Is there anyone who can support you? Anyone you can be totally honest with?
Maybe try a different GP and have another go at telling them. An anti depressant may be all you need to help you back up again.

Re: had enough need help

Hi, if you do have a supportive family/friends it may help you greatly to share with them how you're feeling. What you are feeling is nothing to be ashamed of, you need support and help from people and by trying to hide it will only add to your feelings of being so alone. Tell someone, tell us, your...

Re: Where to next.....?

How can they put a stop to you ever being admitted?? That sounds highly neglectful and possibly catastrophic.
What do the MH services expect you to do in a crisis?

Robin Williams TRIG**

I just wanted to post to say how sad I am to hear of Robin Williams suicide. It goes to show that mental illness doesn't discriminate. It doesn't matter who you are or how much money you have. Personally I always feel a greater pull towards suicide when it is a high profile case like this, I'm not s...

Re: Disgusted, angry, crying, appalled

Maybe ask your GP for weekly prescriptions, it's a bit of a pain but some people find it really supportive.
I guess the other way to look at it is that the prescription may have already been there before you saw your link worker.

Re: Had enough Trig

I understand that Belle. I hope that you have a change of heart and look up some private therapists..look in the counselling directory online and see which ones have concessions. Some will offer hugely reduced sessions and some won't. Mine is supposed to be £40 but is £10. Otherwise there are places...
