Feel let down

Postby mld » Sat Dec 15, 2007 6:19 pm

i know it sounds stupid but the member of the mental health team I see each week was ill yesterday and I feel really let down. She's off on annual leave this week coming and i wasn't looking forward to that either. Now my head is teaming, my brain feels it's going to explode and I need to talk to someone. I know I can call the oncall team, but i hate having to start from fresh - unless they already know me.
i'm trying to sort out a larer support group for myself, but its hard when i can't do relationships!
just dont know what to do now - may just try and get stuff written into my diary - otherwise i'll phone for help.
why dont they put other people in to see people when someone's ill?

Thanks both of you, just knowing that this site exists helps, and has taken the pressure off for this evening. i haven't felt suicidal for a few weeks, but known i've been close to going over the edge. Yesterday just seemed to be the final straw. today i seem a little more able to cope.

totally know how you feel. i always feel let down if my crisis team don't show up (which is often) and i HATE explaining myself over and over and over...sometimes i wonder how they would feel if they had to explain their personal problems to someone they didn't know over and over.

know how you feel, been trying to get to see someone for 3 weeks whilst my psych is on holiday, and although i work in mental health too, i am annoyed, cos when im off sick or on holiday they always cover my visits, so why doesnt this happen with everyone?

grrrrrrr!!!!!

maybe only some of us actually care about people, if they dont they need to get out of the job.

At least we care about each other here!!!
