I agree that whether what is going on is physical health or mental health related, the distress it is causing you is very, very real. I really hope someone can come out and help you figure out something.

That said, I know sometimes when I have thoughts about similar things, I have to try to look at the bigger picture. I know that trying to figure it out myself would be really unsafe. Because often, it would lead to far bigger issues, far bigger complications, and potentially put you in a place where you do not get any say in the type of medical attention you would get.

I know it is awful to have to sit with and find ways to not act on it. Is your normal GP someone you trust or can speak with about it? Perhaps you can get an appointment with them? I know even if they are not sure if it is physical or not, there should at least be some types of blood tests they could run to help determine that.

edit to add-
I know our healthcare systems do work differently, but one medical human I see told me once that if a patient comes to them, even if they have known mental health issues, if a patient comes in saying something is a physical complaint, they have to do due diligence and see it through. So that would mean asking questions, running tests, etc. because they have absolutely no ethical reason to not take it seriously. Perhaps if instead of just asking for new blood, maybe you could explain that you have potentially been contaminated or exposed to something, describe your symptoms, and start from there? Sometimes I think when we dive right into what exactly would help, medical professionals tend to be quicker to write it off. Because maybe it's possible that with their knowledge as the experts, they would know another thing that could be done to help with it that would be less invasive than a full on blood transfusion, you know?

The police are nice though at least



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!


Who else is fine?!?!?

I am still in a&e waiting for the second doctor for a mental health act assessment.
They think I was lying about taking my medication and that I've not been taking them for longer than I said and that's why I am 'unwell'
It is 4am and I am not tired just very agitated
New police officers have come and they are also nice but I am really sick of this



I'm fine! Totally fine. I don't know why it's coming out all loud and squeaky, 'cause really, I'm fine!

That is really frustrating and not okay that they don't believe you about your medication. I'm angry on your behalf! Is there a way to mention that you are agitated and see if there's anything they can try to do or offer since it is so late/early and you have been waiting so long?

Hope you got to hospital safely, although obviously being sectioned sucks. How are you now?

Do you have a friend or family member who could bring you clothes etc?

I found it very confusing when people were telling me I was ill and I just hope in time you will be able to trust the professionals.

What bad things have been happening?

My mum came up with the idea of ordering clothes online to be sent straight here which I will do.

Bad things that I've done.
I had a bit of a meltdown but now they've spoken to me and I have my room now I've settled down a bit.

Thanks dawn x

Some hospitals have spare toiletries so it might be worth asking for toothpaste etc.

Sorry you have done "bad things" but try not to be hard on yourself, it is totally understandable that you are distressed.

Keep talking to the nurses etc, and be patient with yourself. If you are gentle with yourself and try to be trusting in the staff then hopefully you will get home sooner than you might have done otherwise.

Honestly, sleep deprivation CAN lead to hallucinating, mental illness or not!

I hope you can get some sleep.
