I'm intrigued!

What sort of reading does he want you to do?
What reasons did you give him for feeling suicidal?

I'm glad you had Emma as company.

Indeed they are bizarre. But what's more bizarre is the fact he keeps doing them, like it's the first ever appointment he's had with me about being depressed :notsure: Plus the last time I did one with another gp and she's the ONLY person who's told me the result and that was mildly depressed & moderate anxiety, tho it was another test I think? You sure you haven't done one? LOL. They're like 15 questions and you have to answer them with never, rarely, often, sometimes, a lot, all the time kinda thing? He wants me to read two books to do with depression or something, I'll tell you when I've gotten them. I'm glad Emma came, wouldn't been able to do it without her!! Plus she's coming next week :P

*hugs everyone else*

I tried to sleep again but I didn't make it. Oh well.

*hugs some more* Yeah sometimes it does. Though tbh, it just reminds me off all the times I skipped/had appointments in first term of last year. It was a horrible term anyway cus of a lot of **** going on and I had a lot of yelling at me lol. But yeah guilt doesn't help lol. I hope I will for second half of this semster, I'm determined to do so :D *hugs you again* Struggling with sleep sucks man.

When they asked why i said cos it was a peice of paper and was easy to do it, why should i have to put it on the paper should you be talking to me?

She said "i see"

It's so easy to lie, even I've done online ones and lied before...but yeah =\ I know what you mean.

I mean, someone could say they're fine..and they actually aren't, and vice versa.
It's quite obvious what the answers would be and what outcome there would be when handing it over.
I'm not sure if i'd approve to fill one out, i'd rather someone spoke to me face to face about it.

This isn't a dig at you Hells!!
More a dig at the doctors! Hah.
It's just a personal opinion on it! I know of someone who's had to take a test after having a baby - i'm guessing to define if she was suffering from PND - and she thought the whole thing was a bit silly as well.

Oh I knew it wasn't a dig anyway lol. But you're right, what is the point? Though I think some if not all use it to help make up their mind if it's just really anxiety or depression or both.....I didn't even fill this one out. I gabe the answers lol. I felt all confused lol.

Dramatic 15-10-2008 11:13 PM

Nope, i've definatly never done one!
I've seen 3 different GP's at different stages of my life with depression (17 - 18 & 20) and i've never taken one.
I wonder why they give them to some patients and not others? Hmmm.

What's the outcome of the appointment though? Did he just want you to read these books or did he offer advice etc?

MammaMia 15-10-2008 11:14 PM

Oooh strange. Maybe ours does it because we have collberations with mental health or something (ask emma what I mean, she'll remember lol).

The outcome was for the reading, to see him next week and to go back if I get really desperate to the point I'm gonna do something!!!

Kahlia1981 16-10-2008 12:37 AM

I've done a MHI ... well several actually ... and they sound kind of similar. The last time I did one I added boxes of my own because nothing they had there really fitted how I was doing/feeling. Also because I hate my case manager. For me she is totally useless .... she's a fricking goldfish. Hence why I haven't been to see her for awhile.

While psychotherapy of some description may help me, I need to be well first.

*hugs everyone*

*Curls up into the corner in complete exhaustion*

Does someone mind knocking me over the head so i can get some sleep?
Gone 4pm, still not slept.
Hours worth of panic attacks for the past week due to the start of a new combination of meds.
Nightmares throughout the night, waking up in a hot sweat, more panic attacks.

Tired. Tired. Tired.
And i feel like my heads going to drop off my shoulders because it's hurting so much.

I'll shut up whinging now and go curl into a corner.
Feel free to come cuddle me, i need the company.

*Hugs everyone who needs it and leaves quietly*

Pomegranate 16-10-2008 04:17 PM

*sits next to you and gives you a cuddle* Don't worry about whingeing x

MammaMia 16-10-2008 05:46 PM

*hugs everyone*

Grrrr today has been seriously **** man. I didn't go to sleep until like 4.30 So anyway moving on to today.. Firstly I decided to try a different way into uni and went wrong at one point, so had to get off a bus that I didnt need and walk back a MILE to the train station. Then a frigging fast train had to pass through didnt it? Stuipd brain. Stuipd thoughts. Stuipd Hells. Then I eventually made it off the train and then couldn't find the bus stop. Once I got on the bus, i then suddenly realised I forgot my ID car and was possibly not going to be at uni for 10.15 (tho my lecture didnt start til 10.35) and was only 5 mins in meeting Nosheeen, or would have been had she turned up on time. She was then late. So we were both late for the lecture, I couldnt follow him today cus of missing the beginning and sitting in the worst place possible. Actually fell asleep on a desk yay :P Then was really getting pissed off when we left (cus today was going so wrong). Went to tutorial later and he threw the pair of us back out and asked to come back later, but we didn't because Nosheen had to go and I can't understand him and so wouldnt have followed or been able to make notes (this will serve me right in the end?) and anyway then met up with James and had lunch with him. Then finally met Krystal (yes she's a member here hehe) and had a VERY VERY long talk and came home to find my sound isn't working all the sudden :S GRRRR

I am so pissed off man >.< I am actually crying.

Why can't I have a good day?

shadowedseraph 16-10-2008 08:24 PM

*Hugs Helen* My poor dear its just not going your way at the moment is it

*snuggles Dramatic*

MammaMia 16-10-2008 08:38 PM

*hugs back*

Sorted silly sound problem and you're right it really ISNT going my way. Oh and I emailed someone at uni about my dsa assessment saying I'm going to cancel my counselling appointment and she reckons my assessment will only last two hours or so and therfore I should still go. Well she can **** off cus there's no way I'm going back into uni after that assessment, it's my choice what I do and don't do. Yes I may need the appointment, but grrr I just can't go next week. Whatever.
