    Hey guys, I guess I'd like some advice or something along those lines...

    I'm 17 and just so lost... I'm doing A Levels at college and have made no friends, everyone is with people from their secondary schools and have already made groups, and I'd just feel like I'm intruding, I don't even have the confidence to talk to people. I have a stutter and it has impacted my life so much, I've tried therapy but it was useless...
    I have the least amount of self esteem on this planet (Maybe over exaggerating ), I always tell myself I'm unattractive and not good enough for anyone. I always try to avoid mirrors and photos, or just anything that would reflect my appearance. I have the weirdest head/ face shape ever, adding up all my physical flaws...Just saddens and depresses me. I've been called attractive by a few people, but I always just brush it off and tell myself "Yea Right!". I'm bored, lonely, sick and just unhappy with my life. What's the point in living it? (I'm not suicidal) I'm just so fed up and want to enjoy my life again but don't know how

    Heys guys, I was discharged from hospital yesterday, but i'm really struggling with the transition. Feeling like I am going insane .I think my nerves are misfiring for whatever reason. I feel like I have bugs crawling all over me, but there is nothing. It doesn't matter where I am tonight or what I am wearing I can't stop but feel the sensation of movement on my body. I just had a shower and the same thing happened so I am not sure what to do. I've been having a lot of nightmares and flashbacks perhaps this is connected? There are people in mirrors laughing at me and running away. There are ants crawling everywhere, all over me and all my things. There are people talk about me but I can't find them.

    please help

    They didn't just discharge you with no support? Do you have anyone you can call? Any meds to be able to calm you down a bit?

    I feel like I have no support. I have a weekly appointment with my psychiatrist and a contact number for my CPN, but that's it. And I only have my regular meds; olanzapine and sertraline. I feel so strange.

    My CPN is refusing to put me under home treament/Crisis team. I begged her today to refer me to them but she's just not listening.

    I set the fire alarm off while everybody else was out shopping. Feeling extra stupid now I don't know if I can face walking onto campus tomorrow. I'm so scared that I'll make a tit of myself and just fail miserably at something. Don't want to go. Want to stay home where it is safe.

    Just fought off my second hospitalisation in as many months. I've got the night to improve, then being seen tomorrow.

    Why isn't there a nicer version of hospital as an option?

    I've banned myself from listening to my usual depressing music. Tinie Tempah is currently keeping me company :facepalm2:.

    She said she wants me to have minimal contact with the mental health services. Which is ridiculous seeing as now is the time where i need the most support.

    Shadows are following me everywhere. There are people in the shadows and they're coming for me.

    There is dependent on where you live. Try looking up local crisis houses, they've been a god send for me and have allowed me to avoid hospital

    I called them earlier and they said they couldn't really speak to me because i'm not listed as being under their care. For **** sake, i'm struggling so much and there's near enough no support.

    I'm pretty sure if you go to A&E you would end up being seen by them, is that a possibility? :hugs:

    Is there anywhere you can go where you feel safe? Like bed, lie naked and feel the sheets on your skin instead. Really wrap yourself up tightly so that it's all you can feel. Seeing as a shower hasn't helped you.

    I'm inclined to agree with Idle though, going to a&e might be a good idea.
