My GPs have referred me 6 times over the last year to CMHT. Each time i've been refused any support/treatment (I'm not delusional or psychotic and they tell me I'm not suffering from mental illness).
I am totally utterly completely alone. No one cares - no, not really. I cannot cope any longer. I am going to end my life this weekend.
But I want it noted that my state is ENTIRELY due to the failure of public services: NHS, police, social services etc. They are all totally responsible.
Please dont kill yourself!! I too am getting basically no help....I dont know how long you have been waiting, but I've been waiting since last summer for someone to help me out. I was prescribed anti-depressents, but only took them for a month because I wanted to learn how to deal with, and hopefully heal myself without drugs. It really cheesed me off when I was talking about a relationship I had, and said I didnt trust the person and the therapist talking to me, gave me this smiley nod like ,'no, no, he did nothing wrong to you.' Like she thought my reactions were nothing-- something like that. Something about it really angered me. She refered me to a group...but even still, they havent got back to me. They said they may have a place this month, but havent said anything since. Im really irritated because I want strategies about how to feel better, go onto the next thing, but all I get are phone numbers and websites....that arent really helpful, one main reason being that I normally have little credit on my phone, and can only access internet when at college. Im tired of telling people Im upset, and struggling, and them not understanding, or just going through my feelings. 'I feel this way' them: 'yup' Me: 'what do I do. What can I try.' Them: 'we're not here to tell you that.' So yes, I understand the frustration. Grrr. I too, am very alone. Very, very, very alone, and have suicidal thoughts.
