I cried. My support worker helped a lot. No I don't have to go again.

I've just been feeling so low since Friday night I don't know what started it. I've been stuck in bed for 2 days and cancelled my support workers. I just feel so awful. I feel so lonely. Trying so hard to make friends and be a part of something but it just isn't happening. I feel worthless and a failure.

I see. That must be really difficult. I hope you know you are not alone, feeling like this. Everybody fails. But it doesn't make you a failure. You can always try again, and it can work out. I can assure you you aren't worthless. Everyone has worth.

Thank you.

I have my support worker coming around 4 and I just don't know what to say to her. I feel so stupid.

What's important for you to get some info/feedback/reassurance about at the moment? Maybe you don't even really need to prepare for your support worker coming, sometimes conversations work themselves out in the moment, but if there is something you really need to say then write it down and make sure you do mention it. I hope it goes ok with your support worker.

That was nice of your support worker. I know what you mean about having few interests, my CPN says maybe I should just try things if I don't know what I like and maybe I will find something that way. Are there things you would be willing to give a go and see how you find them?

There are sometimes taster sessions for things like different gym classes and craft stuff etc. I think some libraries also have lists of groups etc in the local community that you might want to give a go. I know it's hard to get started and to even decide what to do, talking about things with your support worker would be good and see if there is anything that you can get support to go along to.

Thanks. Yeah I guess so. I've just found out who my new care coordinator is and I feel hopeless.

I'm sorry you're so upset about it. Why are you feeling hopeless? You don't like your new CC?

No I don't I've only met her once a few months ago when she was on duty and came round my house with the doctor and she wasn't very nice to me and kept threatening me and also yesterday on the phone she said she would come to see me Wednesday next week I said I'd have to get back to her she asked why and I said because I need to find out if my support worker can make it and she was like oh no you don't need your support workers and kept saying I didn't need them also just found out I've had 3 hours of care a week taken away from me

That's a shame about your CC, try and give it some time anyway. Sometimes it takes people a while to get to know you and realise what you need and how to respond helpfully to you. Was it explained to you why your 3 hours have been taken away?

No it hasn't been explained. I really don't think I can work with her. She's been so unhelpful already. My mum will be on the case tomorrow so I'm really grateful for that and hoping for a good outcome

Thanks for your reply. No she didn't really. She spoke to the manager of my care company who said she would ring and speak to someone but we haven't heard back yet. I think my mum is planning on calling the mh team Friday.

I'm feeling pretty low. I feel so stupid but I kinda miss living in the supported housing I was in. Things were easier. I miss the staff, some I had close bonds with. I miss the simple things like going out for coffee and walks with them and having long chats. I miss the feeling cared about. There's a few things I don't miss like the other tenants and feeling restricted but I miss it and it makes me emotional thinking about it. I'm so stupid.

You miss the security and sense of safety. That's natural and not stupid at all.
