New here - advice please

Postby so sad » Wed Mar 12, 2008 8:36 am

I've just joined the forum. I'm 35 and have suffered from depression on and off for 17 years but its been constant for the past 12 months and never, ever this bad. I self harm on a daily basis and being at rock bottom see the only way forward is suicide.

I have a mental health assessment tomorrow and really don't know what to expect. i know I have to open up (my big problem) and if they don't see me as a priority I'll have to wait months and months for any kind of therapy.

Can anyone advise me please?

Thank you

Thank for you all your replies. Very nervous about this afternoon but I know I have to be completely honest - pretty hard when I spend all my time trying to hide it!

Hi SS,
Hope it goes well this afternoon. Do be open and tell them as it is. Most of us have been there and done that and I must say I got help immediately but it was because I was truthful to them and to myself.

As I've said - hope it goes well for you.
