maybe it's something to consider. It's a choice you can make if you decide to.

It's hard to trust her when our relationship is ruined

Maybe it's worth viewing it that way?
I think this is what you need to focus on. I know it's difficult when you don't have a brilliant relationship with a treatment provider but you can still work with her on practical things to begin to move forward.

Of course, I can understand that. What do you think is going to help you to get home?

Are you noticing any changes at the moment? Medication is only part of treatment though.

A good sleep is important :) Has anyone said what the medication might help with symptom wise? How have things been recently?

Well the new medication is Pregabalin and is for anxiety so I guess helping with that really. Pretty rubbish. I've not been out since Wednesday so feeling like a caged animal. Also they have given me my unescorted leave back which has just messed with my head and left me feeling confused. I spoke to my fav HCA who said I shouldn't be allowed out on my own at all and that she thinks it was a mistake because the consultant usually discusses leave with people and she didn't discuss the unescorted with me. I deliberately didn't ask for it because I knew I wasn't ready for it especially after last time it's only been two weeks since my suicide attempt and it was pretty serious so it doesn't really add up. It's very tempting and if they have given it intentionally then it feels very much like they are daring me to try and end it all again.

Am I right in thinking that you do not have to take leave if you don't feel safe for it? You can choose to tell them that you're not ready (a great example of taking responsibility, as they are wanting you to do).

Did you tell the HCA that you didn't feel safe for leave? If so has she passed that back to your team? Mistakes do happen/ miscommunications.

I would hope that HCA has passed her own concerns on and queried the leave thing. One thing is or sure though, no one is "daring " you to do anything. Services, especially ip are do not do that, and they've already told you it'll be a while befoe you are ready for discharge. That doesn't point to them testing you out on anything.

Would you ask them if they would consider more escorted leave before starting back with unescorted leave?

Yes the HCA said she would pass on that I wasn't safe to go out. I've written a two page letter to my consultant in the hope she understands me better. She will be given the letter on Monday. In my letter I've asked her to withold unescorted leave til I'm ready.

The staff have told my mum they will not be letting me out on my own over the weekend anyway and that they will find out what's happened on Monday.

That's a really good step forward.... well done for using your voice (well, written voice too!) and looking out for yourself.

Thank you. Hoping she understands. I'm sure I'll regret the letter at times but I think deep down I know it was the only way forward

The letter sounds like a really good idea, I'm glad you wrote it and understand that although you might regret it at points it was a good plan.

What's making you feel so strongly about your psychologist?

Been a death on the ward tonight . It was my friend and unfortunately I found her. I don't feel safe here and I'm filled with grief.

That must be really traumatic, I'm sorry you're going through so much. Are there any staff you trust to talk to and try to figure out how you move forward?
