    :hi: Hope you've been doing ok, and don't feel bad for not having posted - we all need a break from social interaction every once in a while. If you do make a new account, be sure and tell us who you are (I get very confused over all the new accounts and name changes ).

    The meet ups were really good fun - hope to see you at the next one.
    Thank you for taking the time to reply... it's a little thing but for some reason it means a lot.

    There are good days and bad days... mostly bad :sigh:. I spent the majority of the Easter holidays locked away at home feeling empty then sad, going from being a zombie to a crying mess. I probably completed 5% of my uni work so now I am panicking. I only have one deadline which is a while away but I didn't revise or prepare for any of the tests I have next week which actually count towards the final mark. Do you have any language listening tips?

    And when I do make another account I will make myself known I just cannot think of what username to have! So if anyone has any ideas, feel free to mention them!

    I would love to go to the next meet up! But, even though I know that everyone is amazing, for some reason the idea of it scares me!

    How are you?

    That's just ****ing ridiculous. Call them up every now and again to see if they have cancellations.

    I'm seeing the person who brought it up on thursday so I'm going to ask her about it. But yes, utterly ridiculous.

    Ugh, doesn't surprise me in the slightest. I've had to wait 2-3 weeks while being suicidal and needing to pretty urgently change/adjust meds before. Also had to wait 2 weeks while being kinda hypomanic and needing to change things, meaning I had to just discontinue meds by myself

    Still sucks though

    Ouch, waiting that long when you're suicidal is really bad

    Took me 7 months to finally get to see a psychiatrist when my psychotic symptoms started returning. I managed to see a private one in a grand total of 3 hours. :facepalm:

    7 months is pretty damn bad. I got 'lucky' in that respect, it only took about a month or two for a referral to a psychiatrist when I moved to London. Shame I only see him every 2-3 months

    Especially bad when I'm in the titration phase of Lamotrigine which can make you manic until you get to a decent dose (with him having left me/my GP a titration schedule that only had me go up to 75mg when I probably need to be on 100-200

    Wow that's a hell of a long time. Are you still with Early Intervention In Psychosis team or have you moved on? I've generally found that I see someone at least once every two weeks and sometimes more depending on when I get appointments.

    Oh that's really good for London. I know a guy who was waiting over a year in central London and in the end had to go private because he was deteriorating in that time.

    Couldn't you ask your GP to increase the dose for you, or will they not do that?

    Nah, I saw them for 3 years so I got discharged. Only they didn't give me a discharge plan or anything it was just basically piss off Then when things turned pear-shaped I was ****ed. :dontknow:

    Hate people like that who expect you to drop everything for them the minute they want something, but they don't care about anything else ... like how much effort you've put in or anything!

    People do suck though, almost completely given up with most .... don't seem to be many genuinely nice and caring people left around! Hope you're alright

    Unfortunately not, my GP won't really touch my meds without approval from my psych. At one point my psych had told me I could increase my Moclobemide but never got around to telling my GP, it took some persuasion to get my GP to actually give me the higher dose.

    Sorry I can't help make you feel better at all ... I know how annoying people are and how **** it can make you feel :hugs: I am sure you don't look stupid though and anyway its more important to sort out the nose bleed then worrying about anything else!
