Lindsay - *hugs* You have EVERY right to as much care as any one else. They seriously have to pay you the same attention as the accidents etc. Just because you did something yourself, doesn't de-value your need for care. In fact, they should give you more care, because they should look after the inside part too. I can't believe they sent you away without checking your kidneys, or having you speak to a mental health professional. You are perfectly within your right to complain officially about that. And I also want to say, I'M SO VERY PROUD that you went to the hospital for help!!!! Ok, so they were rubbish, but you WENT. That is an awesome thing, and it makes you SO strong!!

Mark - *hugs* I hope you're feeling better now that the appointment is out the way. I love that feeling; when it's done, it's over...

Oliver - how did it go? *hugs*

Lia and Charlie - I don't know you, as I'm quite new here, but congratulations! Also, there's no reason why you can't come to chat here!

Sarah - how are you now? Make distraction t-rolls!

Rhi - I'm from Cardiff. You? And I have Facebook on my profile too.

Thank you everyone. I'm still feeling unwell and I have been advised to see a doctor so I have an appointment at 5.30. They'll probably just tell me to go to bed or something.

I hope your appointment went well, Oliver.

*hugs Mark and MJ* how are you both.

*hugs Lindsay* I hope the appt goes ok with the dr, and i agree with MJ well done for going to hospital to get checked, I know how hard that can be.

The appt went ok, I told her about the urges I have to shut my eyes while driving, and she said I shouldnt drive until I'm more emotionally stable, which is I guess what I was expecting to here. She is also going to do a letter for me for DSA, which is good, it was weird cos she said she would put in it severe depression and severe anxiety and no one has every really talked about the anxiety with me, so it was weird hearing it from her, she said she wouldn't go into too much detail which is good, but she didn't say she would mention BPD, but I guess I can mention that to them and I can get the crisis team to write a letter if need be for that. sorry rambling now

*hugs all*

I'm glad your appointment went ok, Oliver. *huge hugs*

frenchhorn 06-05-2011 06:02 PM

thanks Lindsay *hugs back*

What are you going to be getting up to tonight?

(I'm so confused about what time it is. I think it's because I had no sleep last night because I was awake for ages and then I overdosed at 2am and was in hospital until about 7.30am and then I just carried on with the day but it feels like it should be later than it is. I keep looking at the clock and thinking that it's wrong.)

Sefka 06-05-2011 06:06 PM

Good evening and hugs all round.

Sounds like a lot of people have got through difficult appointments today - well done all of you.

I ended up cutting last night which was stupid, but I feel a bit calmer now, just a bit sore and massively tired. Sigh... life goes on. TFI Friday!

dontwantyoutoknow 06-05-2011 06:10 PM

God, you guys are all so brave!! Y'know, actually going to appts.

I fail. Meh.

But y'know what? I'm getting my old counsellor back soon! She's phoning Monday (missed her today by about a second, literally!!); to get details and stuff; then she's away for three weeks; then she's not got space so I'll have to wait a bit. BUT that works better for me, because I have time to get used to the idea that I have an appt then. The one I failed at, I only got given like 24 hours before and I guess I just need to adjust to the "I HAVE an appt. I'm GOING to the appt" for a week or so, beforehand.

*hugs everyone*

My mums babysitting tonight for my brother so my 1yr old niece and 13yr old nephew are here... My nephew could drive anyone insane. He is a complete and utter little ****!

He just walked in and went "Oh pink hair, thats weird, like you I guess" GRRRRR I'm going to f'ing strangle him by tomorrow morning!!!!!!

*takes a deep breath*

frenchhorn 06-05-2011 10:08 PM

*hugs Mark* thats really cool that you can meet up in the summer :)

*hugs Lindsay* I always feel like I have no idea what time it is when i come out of hospital after an OD, its always so confusing. I hope you can get a good nights sleep tonight.

*hugs Rhi* I'm sorry your nephew is annoying you so much, can you try to stay out of his way?

*hugs MJ* I hope the counselling works out and you don't have to wait too long for it. I used to suck at appts, but over the years I have got used to it, but it took me 4/5 years before i went to my GP about my mental health stuff.

*hugs Sefka* I'm sorry you cut, please look after the wound and I hope you get some sleep.

I'm really worn out, so I'm giving the gym a miss for tonight, which I feel bad about, but just so knackered after an hour and a half practice.

*hugs Sarah*
