I hope they aren't awful and it isn't too stressful. I know for me too once I've actually done what I needed (i.e. self harm or overdosed) I'm actually a lot safer because as you said, it's out of your system. I'm glad you can stay home. Like I said already, you didn't do anything wrong. You asked for help multiple times before you did it, and it sounds like the ward manager at least understands that.

That said, if the voices get bad again, is there anything else you can try? Can you get rid of what you overdosed with or lock it up or something?



Please do not give me virtual hugs unless you are only using the hug function on threads. Thanks.


You can't always keep it separate.

Thanks Camden

The other person was really nice too and it was fun to reminisce with the guy I've known for years.
And joked about the crisis team cliches.
They said a lot of people are concerned about me though which is not good.
And to expect the worst (going to hospital) tomorrow or the next day. Whenever the ward have a meeting and call me. It's a different ward now as well because they've changed things over AGAIN and everyone went back to the original hospital for some reason.

They asked for all my extra meds. I didn't realise how much I had. So I gave them all of it.

The psychologist heard what happened and called me today and said she was thinking of me which was nice of her. She's going to call me again soon to see how I am.



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?!?!?

Concern doesn't have to be inherently bad, but I definitely get that you want to stay at home and not go back to hospital. I'm glad you gave them the extra meds you had, that was super brave and I hope will influence their decision. I'm also glad you got to talk to the psychologist. It sounds like you really are doing all the right things and the hard work to engage and be honest, so I hope they acknowledge that in the decision. Do you know when you will hear anything?

Thank you

I don't know when I will hear anything
My phone ward round was meant to be tomorrow but from what the crisis team said, they might be having a professionals meeting today to decide what to do with me.
So I'm going to be on edge until whenever I get a call from them.

Sometimes I wish I was back in Hertfordshire where the mental health team didn't give a crap about me and left me alone. I could do anything and they wouldn't put me in hospital. Now I am put in hospital for the tiniest thing.

Would it to be helpful and reduce your anxiety to say if I havent heard anything by x time I will call crisis and ask?



Given enough tea I could rule the world.

That's a good idea
My CC just called and didn't seem to know anything about the OD at all. Fantastic communication skills from the mental health teams as usual.
But I told him anyway because I thought he already knew.
He was just going on about plans to lock medication away and my depot tomorrow and how that's going to work. Still unclear about that

Wonderful communication there, you're right... But I am really glad you told him even if it was by default. How are you feeling this morning? Sending hugs.

I'm feeling ok thanks
Bit nervous because they said I have to go in for ward round tomorrow rather than do it by phone and I'm worried they are going to trap me there and not let me leave once I'm in there.
So very anxious about that
Otherwise not too bad

Can you ask if there is anything you should bring with you to be best prepared? That way if they say, you don't need to bring anything versus like, maybe bring a couple of days worth of items that might give you a better idea what they are thinking.

I'll have to ask them when they come and pick me up tomorrow as I don't think anyone I call at this time will know anything.
I'm so scared about it

Realistically, they wouldn’t have any reason to trick you into staying. If they wanted you in hospital again, all they need to do is section you, I doubt they’d do it by trapping you because there are easier ways.

I'm still on a section 3
But I suppose if they wanted me in hospital they would have done it by now?

Yes, they would have. It looks like they’re giving you a chance to prove you’ll be ok in the community, but I can’t read minds so your best bet would be to ask them.

I hope that's the case.
I'll find out tomorrow I suppose.
I will ask them before I get in the car though. Hopefully they'll know something

I hope your anxiety was worse than ward round turned out to be. Update if you can/want.

Ward round was ok in the end. Though I am still only on leave and not discharged yet.
I have a telephone ward round next week to be discharged providing I don't have any more incidents. Which hopefully I don't. Though I am worried about that.
Took 6 hours for transport to bring me home though which was annoying! Just got home

Yay, glad you are home!! What are you worried about with regards to staying safe? Would it help to talk about it at all?

Thank you!

I'm just worried I won't be able to stay safe
And if I can't I probably wouldn't get help again to avoid hospital
I really don't want to go back
Especially as they have moved back to the even worse ward.
It was so tough being there for so long today, I wouldn't be able to cope with going back
