Every day is a battle

Postby br22 » Wed Dec 04, 2019 5:15 pm

I’ve been struggling for a long time and feel like I’m losing the battle to be well.
I don’t know how to keep going anymore. The crisis team have discharged me and I feel like I’m left to deal with things on my own.
The thoughts inside my head scare me.

Thank you for replying. I have realised that I’ve isolated myself rather than admit how much I’m not coping with life right now.

Hello. I can relate to you with what you're going through I hope you get the help that you need and I hope you get better soon. Don't let the cmht and other teams discharge you I was told to keep asking for the help keep at the cmht etc until you get it I'm still struggling mind but it might be better for you don't let them leave you without any help and support they have an obligation of law to provide you with treatment etc. Take care and stay well and safe.

Crisis team keep telling them as well that's what you need to do.

Thank you for your advice. I’d had a good couple of days when they discharged me, and I thought I was starting to get better. Now I feel hollow and lost inside.
They put my meds up and it helped for a few days but it doesn’t seem to have had any long term effect.
I’m a single mum, work full time and have two sons with special needs (17 & 21).
I have no idea how I’m ever going to get back to work, and just feel I’m sinking lower and lower.

isolating urslef is maybe the worst thing u can do, i know as i have been doing it for so long i have no idea how to open up. i have on here more than with any1 in real life and it does help just typing it out.

id have thought if u had 2 kids with special needs ud get some sort of help from the social specially as u have ur own issues as well, if u do go to the social blag it as much as possible, embellish big time as i think thats the only way to get help from them.
