It seems to me that considering an idea for something that a team think could potentially be helpful is the opposite of stupid! Whatever you decide in the end, giving it careful thought and consideration is most definitely the smart thing to do. Why wouldn't it be?

I agree with Eska. You have always felt quite uncomfortable about having a depot yet you have carefully considered this one despite your discomfort. That's really brave and the total opposite of stupid. I hope that you can come to a decision between you and your treatment team that is suited to you.

Thank you both. I will keep thinking about it. It's really playing on my mind and I'm so torn.

I'm still very devastated about my friend who I found dead and her funeral is in a couple of weeks which I think I'm going to attend. I can't get the image of finding her like that out of my head. I wish I could have done more. Maybe I could have.

That must have been so traumatic, of course you will still be feeling the effects of it. It wasn't your job to do more, I'm sure you were there for her as much as you could have been. It's important to focus on you now as much as you can.

Thank you I appreciate it. It is so hard and so traumatic. Got her funeral on the 16th which I'm dreading. I know I need to try and focus on myself it's just hard with these flashbacks and nightmares.

I can imagine how difficult and distressing it is. Do you get to talk through the flashbacks and nightmares with anyone?

Yeah I've been speaking to one of the HCAs about it. Really I need my psychologist I think but she's obviously been away but at least she's back on Monday.

Not too much longer to wait now. Keep talking to the HCA/whoever else you trust in the meantime. Are you doing anything over the weekend?

Thank you. Not managed to speak to anyone really today.

I had a church thing with my friend for about 2 hours.

Tomorrow I'm going to my flat with my Dad.

The church thing was okay thanks. Not many people so that was good as I don't think I can cope with crowds and having to socialise right now.

Thank you. Worrying about my psychology appt tomorrow x

It's natural to worry but you've been waiting so long for the appointment and have acknowledged that it would help to speak to the psychologist so I hope it goes well. Do you have specific worries? How can you try and relax today?

Thanks. I know. Just it's been so long. I don't know what we're going to do or talk about.

When I get to my flat hopefully I'll be able to relax a bit.

Do you have some specific things that you would like to talk about with her? Maybe you could write them down and take it with you so that you can have a look to jog your memory if you find you go blank once you're in the appointment.

How has it been at your flat today?

I have things to say and questions about the EMDR but I don't know if we're having seperate appts for that.

I guess Christmas and the flashbacks and nightmares and my friend's funeral.

It's been okay thanks I was quite productive had a bath, tidied up etc.

Thank you both. It was okay thanks. We're meeting again to do the "safe place" thing on Wednesday but I'm still not sure what safe place I could use.

We start full EMDR I believe next Monday and it will be an hour and a half session.

I am thinking I may decide to have the depot after all. As she said we can go through anxiety techniques beforehand.

I'm glad it went ok and she is offering you support regarding the depot. Did you say to the psychologist that you're having trouble thinking of a safe place?
