xxjuliexx 15-05-2010 01:55 PM

anything i can do mark

Scarletdreamer 15-05-2010 01:57 PM

*cuddles all who want cuddles, and waves at those who don't*

Lindsay, so glad that you didn't jump. :( You deserve better and bugger those who think that you don't deserve help. They're idiots. Have you thought about going to Mercy Ministries? (sorry it's been on my mind a lot lately) - free residential treatment for all sorts of things, and it seems like things have gotten serious enough for you that it would be good. There's a place in the UK but forget where it is... :-/ Just a thought. I dunno. Probably a stupid thought but I am worried about you... *holds you gently*

Kahlia, so glad that you, as well, did not go through with your plan. *holds you gently as well* Things will be okay... things will look up. Aren't you and your housemate looking to move where there is better healthcare? I thought you'd mentioned that awhile back. Just wondering.

Hels, glad your friend is okay!! Worry like that is never good... :(

Nicole/MID, glad that your housemate got in touch with you. What a terrifying thing for a 15 year old to go through... hopefully she'll be able to get some sort of response prevention type treatment... because otherwise I can see her developing PTSD (who couldn't?!). How are you doing now??

Mark, hope the walk helps you feel better. They usually help clear the mind... so I hope that it works for you. You deserve feeling better than you do most of the time - all of you do!! *squishes*

Owen, sorry that you've been switching so much... how are you doing, and how is Julie?

Sorry if I've missed anyone who posted overnight - there were three and a half pages of posts since I went to bed, lol, so sorry... :o

I'm doing okay. Really tired. Hate being tired. :( We're going over to one of Jarrod's friend's houses for a grill-out today. I'm nervous about that as they get caught up in talking "guy stuff" and I don't have anything to talk about. Or we watch a movie and I can't focus on it because I'm **** at concentrating on something if I'm not doing something with my hands. I'll probably end up SI'ing or something. I don't know. :'(

Thanks for the responses last night, guys... I talked with Jarrod and as hard as it would be he is willing to let me apply to any program I want to, including the free 12+ month one. Ugh. I don't think I would like that very much... being away that long... but it's only 2 states away so I would feel closer to him than I would if I applied to Mercy Ministries. But I really don't know...


Doikers 15-05-2010 02:00 PM

I just need to calm my mind Owen ,Thankyou for the offer .

April , Please try not to S.I. later on, I know how awful it is to not be able to concentrate *Hugs*

xxjuliexx 15-05-2010 02:04 PM

Lindsay: This ^^ is the treatment I, and numerous other psych patients, receive from our local, and only available, inpatient, community and crisis mental health services. I was refused admission to hospital once on the grounds that I had a "close relationship to my family" so they would be able to stop me committing suicide as family is a strong protective factor. I had to explain to the team that this was inappropriate due to a lack of physical contact through my family being in an area of Australia that was removed from myself and had no access via phone or email. They then told me to go home and watch TV or listen to music as the suicidal ideation, thoughts and plans would disappear.

April: Yes, my housemate and I are intending to move to get better healthcare. Unfortunately we have been forced to delay our move in order to get a more sound financial backing. My god-daughter destroying my computer monitor and my friends refusal to pay for it, and also for the dinner that she and her children enjoyed at my expense that she agreed to pay for on our trip to Cairns, has left me $500 out of pocket, and set us back approximately 4 fortnights on our Brisbane fund. *sigh*

Life goes on. The mood is still very low. The suicidal thoughts are still very high. My housemate is now very aware of them. He is concerned, and we are working hard to keep me out of the hospital. We are also working hard to keep him out of the hospital, because they will tar him with the same brush. It will always be a case of "guilty by association" with that hospital.


Doikers 15-05-2010 03:18 PM

*Hugs Kahlia* Sorry no words just hugs right now , I'm low in my flat but worried I'll have an anxiety attack if I leave it . Hmmmmm.......

Edit: I left the flat and wandered about a bit I was ok :) , Back inside now and I just want to sleep, I can't beleive I've gotta wait 6 hours before I reasonably(Spelling?) can try and sleep.

one_step_closer 15-05-2010 04:21 PM

*hugs everyone* I'm sorry that you're having a hard time.

Doikers 15-05-2010 04:30 PM

*Hugs Lindsay* Sorry you are having a rough time of it too , at least we have the ward , thats something .

taz35 15-05-2010 05:06 PM

*hugs everyone tightly*
Sorry for the lack of individual replies :( I had another 3 pages to go through.
How's everybody today?

CrazyHayley 15-05-2010 05:25 PM

Hello my lovely wardies!
*germ free huggles to those who will accept*
*waves and smiles at everyone else*

Oh my goodness, I'm so sorry about yesterday, there I was saying I'd be a better wardmate and then I bloody disappeared. Extra apologies to Mark if you tried to get me on WoW, cos I wasn't there either!! Eoghan was lovely and left work early to come and look after me and brought me some all in one type medicine for my cold. It wasn't a non drowsy formula, and with everything else I take I just slept on and off, til well, about an hour ago! I've not taken a does again yet as I want to get some stuff done!! At least I know that when I take it later I'll definately sleep. Apart from being ill I'm feeling ok and getting excited about my 'sanity' injection on monday.

There have been 8pages since my last post and still my brain can't quite cope with it all, what with that and the previous lapse, I am so so sorry that I'm not able to support you all better and understand what's going on. I hope though that you can understand. You are all so important to me, and I know there are a few newbies that I need to get to know better too. Please bear with me and I hope I can be a better, more supportive friend soon.

*pops out to smoking shelter* "oh puppy sincalir?! you coming?!"

CrazyHayley 15-05-2010 05:37 PM

*sprays self with pretty smelling stuff so as to not stink of fags*
*gives puppy sinclair a treat for being a good boy outside*

hmmm...the common room is quiet....bloody typical now I'm being sociable.

*wanders around the psych ward*

taz35 15-05-2010 06:01 PM

*tackles Hayley & hugs her* Welcome back :) What's the sanity injection you mentioned? =/ I've never heard of it.

CrazyHayley 15-05-2010 06:09 PM

*picks self up off the floor with grin on her face* Thanks for the rugby style hug taz! What a way for us to be properly introduced, lol. As for the 'sanity' injection. Its actually the contraceptive injection, but as I suffer from the mood disorder PMDD which is linked to my monthly cycle, by having the injection and stopping my periods it will then stop my SU thoughts and mood problems - so sanity in an injection for me. I'm one of the lucky ones. I was on it before for 4years but taken off of it cos of the risks of side effects so I know that it works for me. I still have periods of mild depression when on it, but thats managable and I think will always be with me to some extent. But I am sooo over this PMDD. I wasn't sure at times I'd make it. The ward and my fellow inmates have been a lifeline for me.

taz35 15-05-2010 06:16 PM

:D No problemo. Glad to hear the injection has helped! How's your weekend so far?

MammaMia 15-05-2010 06:40 PM

*cuddles everyone*

CrazyHayley 15-05-2010 07:01 PM

Taz - Ah I've been doing a quiz thing on distractions, so sorry for delayed reply. My weekend has been pretty non eventful as I'm ill with a cough and cold. Just coming on here to spread the love and keep myself sane. I start the injection again on monday.

Thanks for the hugs Helen. How've you been my sweet?!

CrazyHayley 15-05-2010 07:14 PM

*toddles off to kitchen to ponder what to cook for dinner*

*leaves germ free huggles in common room for all who want them*

MammaMia 15-05-2010 07:18 PM

CrazyHayley 15-05-2010 11:08 PM

*huggles Mark* I hope the grocery shopping went ok and I have got you in the same guild as me for now. Only one guild at a time though. I'm glad its a good distraction for us. As for Eoghan looking after me, he is currently out on the piss, so no doubt will make a drunken visit to me between 2 and 3am! hmmm...

*Huggles Laura* just cos she popped in and is lovely to huggle!

*huggles Taz* is your nickname after the cartoon character taz the tazmainein devil?!

*huggles Crimson* thanks for the info on your toon, I still don't know how I'd work out how to get onto a US server though....?! Enjoy your WoW. I've just stopped playing for a bit. Seemed a good point to rest after handing in a few quests. If I started any more I could still be up when Eoghan drops by!

*huggles Julie* cos she hugged me and is lovely!

*follows the trail that Mark left to where he found April and Helen*.....*pounces on them*

*huggles Helen* yeah I was pretty bad too, hence not being in here, but doing better now apart from actually being ill with a virus. Hope things start to improve for you soon.

*huggles April* I don't know why your hiding, but remember you can talk to us in here if you need to.

Hmmm, time for me to get ready for bed methinks......my nose is sore where I've blown it so much! just thought I'd share that with you! lol
