    How long does Samaritans support take by email? I've had a really difficult evening and need support. I've never actually reached out like this before.

    Their website suggests within 12 hours:

    'We aim to respond to your email within 12 hours. How quickly we respond depends on how many volunteers we have working at that time.'

    Hope you're okay :/

    Not a good day to day; I had two interviews yesterday (one I only had an hours notice for so didn't really have much time to prepare) and failed both of them. I feel like giving up. I just want to stay in bed and not facing the world.

    Quite proud of myself today. Finally plucked up the courage to go to the dentist for the first time in years. Dentists are scary enough without having OCD and panic attacks but I got through it despite a panic and I'll have a killer smile by Christmas

    My poor kitty is having an operation today to remove a lump and get it analyzed. I'm really hoping it's just a cyst. He's my "therapy cat".

    In other news, I'm seeing a new psychiatrist tomorrow. Dreading it. Last one I saw sectioned me. My spouse was meant to come with me but something's come up at work. I can't go back to hospital and I am so scared. :afraid:

    Thank you, anon.

    My cat is only 5. He's an indoor cat and I hoped that would keep him safe (when I was a kid so many of my cats were hit by cars) but I guess I was wrong. Hoping it's benign. :crossedf:

    One of my cats had to go through this too a few years ago I hope it is just a benign cyst and that your cat recovers well from the op. Big hugs to you and best of luck with the new psychiatrist :hugs:

    Really annoyed at my therapist, had that 1st appointment 4 or more weeks ago and she promised to try and find me a CPN as she thought therapy would not work by itself and promised to put me on medication which would be done by end of that week if not start of following week at lastest.

    No phone calls, and I have rang a few times to be told I have to leave her a message and she will get back to me but she ends up not doing so.

    That's annoying she hasn't got back to you. However, maybe to help explain a bit, in the teams I have worked in, the allocations of CPNs and Social Workers are done by team managers. So the therapist will let the manager know that they think you need a care coordinator and then it will be discussed and if it is agreed you need a CC, they will put you on the waiting list, which can take some time. Also she will need to speak to a psychiatrist about meds, and their waiting lists can be very long.

    Hopefully you hear back soon though!

    When your uni ****s you over and doesn't run the one module that was gonna get you through 3rd year AND was going to be central to your dissertation plans. I am so angry right now.
