Thank you. If things get more difficult I might go. I have an appointment with my GP on Friday and i'm going to ask her to review my care plan, I know that I need more support.

How are things today? I hope you are feeling slightly better. Have you made any plans for what to discuss with your gp? *hugs*

I'm still not feeling great, my neighbours are being noisy and that usually makes things worse. I do know what I want to discuss with my GP and I have written it down.

I have another question, sorry. For anyone who has ever been to A&E, how did your family react, particularly teenage siblings? Or did you manage to keep it from them? I worry a lot about causing my brother concern but I know that it would be worse for him if I died. I told him about the assessment team and that I might go down to see if I can get a proper assessment but I didn't say anything about being suicidal. He said I should go if I want to get better. I told him that I might go on the Friday when I went to the hospital and when I got back he didn't even ask if I managed to go.

When I've been to A&E in the past, at home I have always either been made to tell my parents (when I was under 18) or I have told them off my own back. Now it is easier not to, because I live about 3 hours away from them.

I think that it is entirely up to you whether you tell them or not, but that although it might be difficult, they probably would want to know. I think that often family members are not sure what to say, but just want to be kept in the loop.

That was a useless post, I'm sorry, but I hope you are as okay as can be.

I'm afraid I managed to hide it from my family, so I can't say much about that situation. As for your brother, as mentioned above, he maybe doesn't know how to react. It's a complicated thing, and can be very hard to know what to say. Maybe he thought you wouldn't want to talk about it? If you feel you can, could you try just being open with him? Sorry if this isn't much help, sorry your neighbours were being noisy, that always puts me in a bad mood, too *hugs*

i have told my mum because i need someone to be there.
my bf is always here for me but i know that it gets too hard for him sometimes so its good that him n mum can share the support.
my brother is 15 and prefers me in hospital to be honest. he knows that i am safe there and that he doesnt need to worry about me.



Some days are still hard but they make the good days seem all the better :)

All my family know about my problems and when I had to go to A&E and stuff. They were concerned obviously but I think it helped knowing I was getting proper treatment.



Isn’t it funny how day by day nothing changes but when you look back, everything is different…

you once called your brain a hard drive, well say hello to the virus.

all my family know, my mum has to drive me.
she is annoyed at first, but she accepts that i need the help.
my step dad ignores me for a few days then carries on as normal
my siblings dont really care, me being in hospital is normal for them.

anyway, it doesnt really matter if they get annoyed, because if it keeps you safe then thats all that matters.



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'm worried about causing my brother to worry, he's 17. Our Dad is 90 and we have no other family members around so there would be no one to support him.

I'm feeling really bad, I don't want to go to A&E though. I'd have to make an excuse to my family which wouldn't work. I don't know who I can get in touch with before I see my GP on Friday. I hate phoning people.

There is no crisis team in my area. I have emailed the Samaritans but they take a while to reply and it's not very helpful because the discussion is slow. I don't think there is a walk in centre in my area either. There is honestly nothing except A&E and GPs within working hours.

I think your family would prefer you to get help before its too late.

Im sure they would prefer to support you in your times of need than never get given the chance.

Honey, you really need to tell someone how you feel because you deserve to feel better. xxx

I agree with tears of solitude, your family would rather you got help. I know it's hard and scary, and you are probably carrying feelings of responsibility and fear of guilt, but you have to take care of yourself as well. Your family would want that *hugs*

I spoke to my brother last night and he honestly didn't want to know. And this morning my Dad said to me that I can help being unhappy, I just need to give myself a shake.

Hun we all know it doesn't work like that, you can't simply shake yourself out of depression. Maybe he's scared for you and doesn't know what to do? I also think it's a really difficult thing for people to comprehend, especially if they havent been through it themselves. Sadness they've experienced, they've been able to bounce back from relatively quickly, so they don't know what it's like to be 'trapped' in such a state.

I hope your docs app goes ok, but in the meantime, don't count out A&E. I'm sure they'd rather you got some help before something terrible happens. People have funny ways of showing they care.

Please look after yourself, I know you're struggling, but everyone on here cares, and i'm sure you're family cares greatly about you to.

take care,
jenx

I agree with jen, mental illness is a really hard thing to understand. I'm sorry he said that though, and that your brother didn't want to hear any of it. That must have been so tough to hear :( *hugs*
