I think you should say that you need help, use those words and be honest about how things are. Even to the receptionist. Do you think you could do that?

^I agree, though I appreciate that that's asking a lot as I can't imagine how disheartening it must feel to have to fight so hard for basic support.

Have you looked into any charity-based mental health support in your new area? I know there was nothing useful where you used to live, but maybe there's something where you are now.

I said I needed help at the assessment. I told them about the Man. A friend rang crisis and they said they would get me help and they haven't.

I self referred for counselling and did an assessment a few weeks ago and they wouldn't take me on.

Alice is scared and she can't find her penguin. The man has been very threatening tonight. He rattled the door handle. Nomlly He just watches. Bertie hissed a lot. So I hid in the cupboard under the stairs and then I self harmed to protect us. No point calling the police. They won't come. The ambulance said that the other day.

Why does no one care enough to help keep me safe? Bertie Alice and I are in bed now. We hope the Man will be content that I absorbed enough Evil with the self harm.

I hope somebody is around now.

I think I'm a bit confused. If as you've said the man is real and you are being stalked, why are you seeking mental health support to make the man go away?

I hope if you need medical attention for the self harm you can get it.



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

Because I hope they will tell the police He is real. And help me get help from the police because the police don't believe me.

I'm confused to. People keep saying He isn't real and I need mh help.

If he was 'real' in that sense the police would know because they would be able to see him and see evidence of him so the MH team wouldn't have to clarify it.

It's hard to be so confused and distressed. How have you been so far today? Have you heard from the CMHT? Sorry I keep asking that.

The cmht called. Said I need a second assessment. Won't help me cope until then. Said He is just because I'm distressed. And if He was real the police would help. She said I just need to learn to cope. And if I really can't keep myself safe to go to a and e.

I'm going to a and e. This is all making me suicidal. And if I do it in a and e then someone will look after Alice. She's so upet and I don't have her penguin. I will ask for help. If they don't listen then I've got someone to look after Alice and Bertie.

Are you in A&E now? I think that distress has a lot to do with what's going on but it's not helpful to tell you that you have to learn to cope but then not give you ideas on coping strategies or support to do that.

Did they say how long the crisis team would be? What do you hope to get from them?

Who is Alice?

Sorry for all the questions.

Alice is little. She likes penguins and tea.

I saw the crisis team. I'm on the way back to my house now.

What did the crisis team say? Well done for getting yourself to A and E.

How long has Alice been around?

Crisis team asked a lot of questions. Said they won't help with the police but want to help me. Said I'm seeing things because I'm stressed. Said Alice isn't real. That made her very sad because she was sitting right there! Wanted to know about my meds. They want to speak to the consultant tomorrow. And are coming to see me at half 6 at the house.

Alice had been around for a few weeks now I think. It hard to keep track.

That sounds positive that they are trying to support you. How did it go when they came this evening? How are you feeling? Do you think you’re stressed at the moment? Hopefully they will talk to the Mh team and that will add to the need for support for you. Do you think medication helps?

I am stressed. But foe good reason. I'm being stalked and flowed around by a 6 year old for one.

I'm really tired.

I wanted somewhere safe from the Man to stay.

If Alice was human real then people wouldn't ignore a 6 year old following you around. I do think a lot of this is to do with stress and distress, and you do have good reasons to be stressed and distressed. Why do you think you're not safe from the man? He doesn't seem to have been a physical threat to you directly? Where would you consider a safe place to be, hospital? I hope the crisis team can help you today.

I burnt. Alice says it's bad. And so does my friend. I had to because I told mum about the Man. Friend says I have to tell crisis or she will call 999. I really tried to stay safe.

I hope you do manage to tell crisis. They can only help you if they know everything that is going on.
