*hugs Lindsay lots* please try to stay safe, I would miss you terribly if anything happened to you.

*hugs everyone else*

sorry I'm not upto many indiviuals, had a tough counselling session where I had to talk about my suicide plan a lot and got to go out in a minute.

PoisonedApple 06-07-2011 08:07 PM

I don't suppose you can get a new one that does listen and who will look at things freshly rather than going by what the other says...? Even if it were true then doesn't necessarily make it true now, people and circumstances change over time... Going off of old information and not actually listening and helping you is well.... unhelpful. The way I see it there is no reason that even with professional help you should still feel unheard and unsafe.

*Hugs Lindsay* Could you possibly get a 2nd or 3rd opinion?

one_step_closer 06-07-2011 08:33 PM

Thank you all for your support. I don't think there is any way that my psychiatrist will change his mind and I wouldn't know how to go about getting another opinion. It's ok though. Death is what I want.

*hugs everyone*

Doikers 06-07-2011 09:58 PM

Lindsay hun Please PM me or anyone you trust, Please . *Huge squishes*

misskitty112 06-07-2011 10:00 PM

Lindsay, I second what Mark said, please PM someone you trust (my PM box is always open). I would miss you terribly if something were to happen to you. *huge hugs*

frenchhorn 06-07-2011 10:01 PM

Lindsay *hugs* please talk to someone, a helpline, or go to your local A and E, please reach out, we all care about you here.

I missed my psych appt today cos I completely freaked out and had a panic attack so got to ring the office tomorrow to get another one.

one_step_closer 06-07-2011 10:06 PM

Do you know why you had a panic attack, Oliver?

If I were to go to A&E they would just send me home. There is no point in reaching out to anyone.

frenchhorn 06-07-2011 10:16 PM

there is a point in reaching out Lindsay *huge hugs*

I think I had a panic attack cos I got really paranoid that if I went outside the bad people would follow me so I got really scared and panicky

misskitty112 06-07-2011 10:26 PM

Lindsay, there is a point in reaching out. *hugs*

I'm sorry you had a panic attack, Oliver. Those suck. I get them semi-frequently. *hugs*

misskitty112 06-07-2011 11:09 PM

I'm okay, just nervous and a bit down.

frenchhorn 06-07-2011 11:11 PM

*hugs Felicia* any reason why your feeling nervous and down?

SoMuchMore 07-07-2011 12:35 AM

*hugs felicia* sorry you are feeling down. what is making you nervous?

*hugs oliver* sorry about the panic attacks. they are awful.

I feel so useless. I'm not doing anything right now and it feels horrible. I miss uni and work a lot right now. I go from being a full time student who also works 35 hours a week to nothing... nothing until September anyway... *sigh* I know i'm being really whiny. I just hate this. I'm so useless that I'm not even posting on here anymore... I just lurk and think about if I should post or not. Sorry i'm being a bad wardie.

I spoke to my OT this morning and she said that there is nothing that she or anyone else can do for me. I might try phoning the police if I can figure out how to explain this to my brother without terrifying him.

I've lost control, or at least that's what it feels like.

Kahlia1981 07-07-2011 05:02 PM

Hello all. *waves*

Sorry I have been away so long from the VPW, but time and life have gotten in my way. I'm not doing so crash hot to be honest. It looks like I'll have to go back to the clinic and have ECT. My psychiatrist and I are trying to work on keeping the hospital trip until the christmas break so that uni isn't affected. We are also counting on uni to lift my mood, but it's difficult to know the outcome of that inference.

If anyone is interested in what's been going on since I last entered the VPW, please feel free to visit my support thread. I really don't like repeating myself.

*hugs to all* and my apologies for not doing individual replies at this time.

one_step_closer 07-07-2011 05:43 PM

I'm so, so scared. I have to take action tonight because I don't know how much longer I will be in control. The crisis team phoned earlier but just told me to stay distracted online and call them back later. I don't know if i'll be able to explain to them just how close to the edge I am because they don't listen.

aklx 07-07-2011 07:06 PM

*hugs Lindsay*
You don't have to take action, not in a negative way, please PM me if you would like to talk.
I'm angry at the crisis team for doing that, you need help. Is there anything I can do?

frenchhorn 07-07-2011 07:11 PM

*huge hugs Lindsay* I'm only a PM away if you want to talk. the crisis team shouldn't have been that way with you (although in a way I'm not surprised cos they are crap with me and don't listen) but please try to reach out to someone. *extra hugs*

*hugs everyone*

everyone keeps asking if I'm going back to uni in sept and I keep saying yes even though I know deep inside me it might not be the right decision.

SoMuchMore 07-07-2011 07:18 PM

*cuddles kahlia* I responded in your thread, but just wanted to give you hugs here too :)

*hugs mark* Thanks for saying im not a bad wardie... but I really do feel like I am being on right now... or just useless in general. Anyway, how r u doing?

*hugs lindsay* I'm sorry the crisis team is not being helpful. Here if you want to talk hun. Please don't do anything. Nobody here wants that at all.

*hugs laura* why are you feeling out of control? If you want/need to talk feel free to PM me.

*hugs megz* Hope that your thoughts have calmed down some.

*hugs heather* how are u hun? Feel like its been quite a while since I've talked to you.

*hugs mrs pan* how r u doing?

*hugs oliver* Can you talk to someone close to you about the possibility of not returning? You don't have to say for sure yes or no yet, but just discuss your concerns to get some reaction/support from someone you trust. (sorry.. I wish i had better advice... I know how difficult it must be to have a conversation like that)

frenchhorn 07-07-2011 07:24 PM

*hugs Laura* your not useless or a bad wardie at all.

the only person I've spoken to about it is my GP, I cant talk to my family or friends cos they all think I'm definetly going back. This is such a hard decision to make, but I feel its already been made for me by people expecting me to go back so I'm just doing that.

one_step_closer 07-07-2011 07:29 PM

Oliver, you have to do what you think is best for you. It's your life after all but I do understand the pressure that other people can put on you.

I'm going to call the crisis team in a couple of minutes, as they have requested. I hope that I get to speak to someone different because the person I spoke to before is so focused on what she thinks will help that she doesn't listen to me. If they can't help i'm going to try and phone Breathing Space.

frenchhorn 07-07-2011 07:31 PM

*hugs Lindsay* I hope the crisis team are more helpful this time.

I want to go back to uni, but I'm not sure if I'm well enough to go back this sept, but everyone else thinks I am.

PoisonedApple 07-07-2011 08:26 PM

*hugs everyone*
*crosses fingers for someone helpful for Lindsay*
*squeezer Oliver* You know if you are well enough better than others do, hun. Do what you feel is right not what you are pushed into.
*squishes Laura* Not a bad wardie. Everyone lurks and withdraws sometimes.

sorry everybody that's the best indiv I can do atm...

so.... I decided to post a thing on fiverr... we'll see if anyone wants a sketch. I could use both the money and the distraction. i'm drawing a blank so just drawing on my own is not gonna be all that distracting... maybe the directed drawing will be helpful.

one_step_closer 07-07-2011 08:29 PM

Oliver, are you able to take some time out of uni and then continue where you left off?

The crisis team weren't helpful at all, they just told me to think positively. Thinking positively isn't going to help me through this. I want to die so badly.

Louise 07-07-2011 08:29 PM

hugs everyone

aklx 07-07-2011 10:07 PM

Lindsay, you need to speak to somebody. Go to A&E. At least ring the crisis team again and insist on speaking to someone who actually listens. Don't let them just give you shitty advice, tell them they have to listen to you and they have to do something. I hate those people.

Doikers 07-07-2011 10:10 PM

I rang my crisis last night and spoke to them for about 15 minutes and it helped but now I feel the same way again as I did last night. I tried to get in to see my psychologist today but there were no cancellations. I'm really scared of being alone over the weekend with nobody to call other than the crisis team again.

Doikers 08-07-2011 12:54 PM
