No I don't. The advocacy service I used to use has closed down.

I think it's Rethink that does the advocacy service in my area now. I'm not sure.

Got a mental health act assessment today. Feeling anxious.

The ward should be able to give you information about advocacy.

I hope your assessment goes ok.

I'm sorry you're feeling so frightened right now, lovely.

Did they explain to you why they were placing under that section?

Please try to work with them, maybe this could be the treatment breakthrough you need. You did mention earlier that you felt a short admission wouldn't look into sorting meds and therapy etc.

Thank you. I am trying. I just hope this will all be worth it. That's true. They've planned the depot for Monday morning. I feel so scared. I feel like such a baby.

It's OK to be scared. What in particular is scaring you about the depot?

The needle and having it in the bum and not knowing which nurse is gonna do it. But very kindly the psychologist I've been working with who I've known for years said she will be present and help distract and support me if she can

I hope she is supportive. Be brave, you can do this and who knows, it might help, which would be great, right?

Hopefully it won't be as bad as you expect. A lot of the time the thought of things is worse than the actual thing happening. If you're getting it in your bum it's just the very top part so you only need to move your trousers down a tiny bit. It's good that your psychologist is offering to support you. Try not to worry too much, as difficult as that is, because you might end up completely terrifying yourself. What are you doing today?

Yeah you're right. The problem is I'm so terrified I feel like talking myself out of it. I keep trying to remember the psychologist will hopefully be there and she's the best psychologist anyone could ask for. I wish I could see her in the community as well. But I know while I have that done she'll be a great support. I just hope I can go through with it.

My parents are coming up to visit soon. That's about it.

It sounds like the depot will happen no matter whether you are okay with it or not. So accepting that it's going to happen, that it's scary, and it's going to happen are about all you can do. The choices you can currently make to determine how easily it will go are up to you. You can fight them on this, or you can cooperate and use the support to the best of your ability. Anticipation can be hard, but it sounds like you are being offered a lot of support. I hope you can make use of it.



You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.

I am planning on making use of it but I'm worried I'll back out last minute or something. Unfortunately when I'm scared it's often the flight response.
