    Hey, I just went to the doctors, I said it was urgent and I needed support, and was very honest about everything I had been thinking and feeling lately, and answered their questions. They called another service to refer me, and I was accepted, and the community mental health people called me later that day for an assessment. I don’t think its…[Read more]

    After a year of not writing (writing short stories and YA fiction used to be my passion), I have started a blog about mental health, to pass the time while I am in bed. I feel like I have achieved something! Would […]

    After a very difficult couple of days I made it to the doctors. It has been a very hard day but they referred me to the community mental health team and I am finally going to be assessed by a social worker and get psychological support. I had convinced myself that my case wasn’t urgent and I didn’t deserve help, but talking about what’s wrong…[Read more]

      I have one question though how did your doctor sent you to it? I’m thinking of asking for help but since I’m unsure of the procedures..

      It’s good to see you reaching out to find the right help and support that will benefit you @jawn, I’m sure you will find a therapist or counsellor who you will be able to open up too, do get your thoughts and feelings out so you can brightly smile and be upbeat, remember you are such a special individual who truly deserves happiness, everything…[Read more]

    Thank you for your comments, it is so nice to know that there are still friendly people on this sight looking out for other people. I contacted my manager but it was hard. I am trying to accept what I am able to do, and not be too upset if I can’t do something

    J.W posted an update 2 years, 4 months ago

    A month after I stopped counselling, I thought I’d be all better but I’m still struggling with finding the motivation to do anything/go outside. Finding social interaction difficult, awkward and confusing too, even with close family. I’m looking for a new job but no idea how I’m going to cope with working.

    Mood : Alone
    • Maybe you could try going to counselling again @jawn, I know how you feel, I’m shy too and I don’t really go out very much at all, do your best to try to meet new people if you can, find a new hobby or activity to keep you going, I’m sure you will be able to confidently and openly express yourself, be positive and kind to yourself, hopefully…[Read more]

    Tinned Mackerel, courgettes, and cous cous that’s been cooked in chopped tomatoes instead of water. Or pasta, pesto and cheese.
