mmmm Alcccooohhhooolll.....Ally, I am not even going to comment and tell you how you shouldn't drink cos it would be way too hypocritical but be careful yeah? *offers hugs*

Alexx, I'm sorry things didn't go quite as you expected. Was she a member of the Community Mental Health Team? Could you call your psychiatrist yourself and see whether he/she will up your meds?

*hugs Jeremy and Ileana* how are you doing now?

Carole, you deserve to be loved and cared for. Your mood swings are not your fault hun *hugs*

Helen, I am just having a text conversation with you but stay strong and in that positive frame of mind. You are right you CAN do this and we will help you.

How was your day Callie? *passes candyfloss*
Has Chloe been on yet?

*hugs Ally, Emma and Helen then leaves hugs for those who want or need*

Ally, I hope you are able to be mindful of the amount you drink or the avaliabilty of any thing else that may be used to cause harm.

Emma, thanks for the hug and for the kind words. How are you doing today?

Detour. Derail 11-04-2008 07:58 PM

Sugar and Spice 11-04-2008 08:01 PM

G*d DAMN!!! Someone please keep us updated :crying:

*sends lots of love and warm thoughts across the continent and an ocean to Helen*

Pomegranate 11-04-2008 09:03 PM

I have spent nearly an hour on and off the phone to her and NHS direct and she still won't go. She is going to hate me for what I am about to do but I don't care and I am sorry if you think this is out of order any of you. I am going to send a message to her entire facebook friends asking one of them for her address because it is an emergency. I have warned her but she still won't listen.

~*forever_broken*~ 11-04-2008 09:47 PM

*hugs Emma*

I think it's the only thing you can do hun... Please keep us updated

I have messaged the people she has mentioned as her closest friends and a couple who have messaged her most recently, so about 7. I don't want to tell everyone on there, it doesn't feel right or fair to Helen. I am just worried about her, and stupidly I am now annoyed with her as well, which I know won't help but I just don't know what to do.

I offered to call the ambulance for her
I offered to tell her mum and drive up (she lives 100+ miles away or I would have just gone) and take her myself or meet her at hospital if she gave me the address. She gave me the mobile number for her counsellor and I even called her and she isn't answering! I don't know what else to do. She won't give me the address or even home telephone number.

She said Didi (12Vampire34) has her address so I have tried to add her to MSN to ask for it or get her to call an ambulance but she isn't online either and I can't find her address anywhere online and her college was shut when I called and is until monday so they can't even call an ambulance.

I don't know what to do. She keeps texting me saying she feels thirsty and light headed and I cant think of any other way to help. She is adamant she isn't going to hospital. But why text Alexx and I if she doesn't want help???

Detour. Derail 11-04-2008 10:21 PM

at least shes still texting you :blink:
I'm scared and worried about her.
:crying:

Pomegranate 11-04-2008 10:22 PM

she isn't any more hun and she isn't answering her phone either. Last text was nearly an hour ago :(

~*forever_broken*~ 11-04-2008 10:23 PM

*hugs*
Because she really does want it hunni... That's why she's given you all these loopholes... But she's scared...
*sigh* I'm sorry hun, it's scary and it's hard and I wish I could offer more...

Sugar and Spice 11-04-2008 10:27 PM

Do you know if she has taken enough of something to cause definite and permanent damage?
She obviously does want help if she has been in contact with you both and comes here so frequently for support.
Can you just keep her talking? Maybe the more you speak with her, the more she'll consider hospital...

Pomegranate 11-04-2008 10:33 PM

I know what she has taken and how much so I called NHS direct and they said she needed to go to hospital. I asked if he was sure and he said 'yes' like it was the most stupid question he ever heard so I think she really does need to go. I tried to keep her talking and then when had to go home, texting but she has stopped replying to Alexx and my texts and isn't answering her phone. It's just ringing and ringing.

The only plus is that her mum should be home now so she is not in the house by herself. Hopefully she will notice something is wrong and insist on medical help. I don't know what else to do now but wait and I hate that. I just PM'd the mods too just in case they have any sort of procedure for dealing with this sort of thing. Long shot I know but am now completely out of options that I can see.

*hugs everyone*

Alexx are you alright hun? *sends special hugs*

chocostashchick 11-04-2008 10:35 PM

oh dear
Helen i hope you are okay honey
the truth is that she knows what she needs to do to be safe and get help
you have done all you can and she has all the info and knows what to do and nobody can do any more
she is the only one who can take the next step
she is the only one who can call an ambulance or get to hosp
all we can do is hope and encourage her
it is in her hands now
you can't help somebody who doesn't accept it - i just hope she accepts it soon

Helen you know what you need to do and i hope you can do it
you have so many people who care
please call and get to hosp

Sugar and Spice 11-04-2008 10:36 PM

As far as I can see you have done what you can for the moment. We'll just have to hope that her mum does notice...

*gets fidgetty and runs in to the padded wall, falls over and does it again...and again*

Detour. Derail 11-04-2008 10:51 PM

I'm feeling crappy...
and...now dad is blaming me for things that arent my fault...:/

Sugar and Spice 11-04-2008 11:01 PM

Sorry to hear that Alexx, it really sucks when people blame you for things like that *sends you warm hugs*

chocostashchick 11-04-2008 11:03 PM

Alexx come have a purple lolly in the Denial Tent and rest for a bit
these things are not your fault and maybe your Dad is just lashing out and blaming you because he wants somebody to blame? but it isn't your fault and take solace in the fact that he is just wrong and it isn't you it's him
i'm sorry hun
xxxooo

Detour. Derail 11-04-2008 11:07 PM

*takes lollypop and sits down*
*bursts into tears*
