    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!

    Actually I have been on meds before, and may be different as I am in Scotland but doctors can just prescibe them.

    And she outright said she would speak to my actual doctor about getting meds and it will be done by end of that week.

    Haven't heard the voices since Monday!

    Also saw a new psychiatrist yesterday. She was super nice although quite alarmed by the amount of medication I'm on. She wants to look into reducing it if things continue to go well because of the high risk of side effects. And I didn't get sectioned which I was so scared of! :woo:

    I spoke to the disability office at my university. They told me to come in and see a psychiatrist so I can start getting support from there too.

    I'm really scared about starting back at uni on Monday but hoping it goes well and maybe I'll even make some friends. :eek: :crossedf:

    I've had the week from hell. PIP assessment was awful, followed by ESA stopping money because they hadn't received my sick note that I had posted 3 weeks previously. Then my CC tells me that despite her telling me I could be getting imminent psychology help (after 3 years of waiting), she's said that I wont be getting anything until 2017. I said I cant cope that long without therapy, and she said the only other option is charity counselling but she says they wont take me on due to risk. I have slept an entirety of 10 hours this entire week. I am so exhausted I cant move and physical pain is at an all time high. I have been agitated out of mind, leading to hours of pacing and trying. Today I've not stopped sobbing and have been a complete mess. I've been ignored by staff, and I tried to ring a helpline which is ****. I am now having very bad thoughts, feelings and urges and am at the end of my tether.

    I'm sure having less sleep only makes your problems worse. Just try to get some rest. Sleeping always makes me feel better

    Less than three weeks till I can move my stuff up to uni given how they've treated me this summer, I am absolutely dreading seeing some of my housemates- but that can't be as bad as being wrapped in cotton wool at home!

    Sorry to read this. I guess the most obvious step is to approach your GP. Would you feel comfortable doing that?

    Sorry to hear its been such a bad week :hugs:

    Have you not had an ESA medical yet? I thought maybe you were put in the support group already and didn't need to hand in any more sick notes. The same thing happened to me during the assessment stage. I got my bf to hand in the sick note to my local job centre since it was a day late as the woman on the phone told us to do that and then the office would fax it to the handling office and I would get paid within a few days but nope, the office claimed it was never handed in and I had to wait weeks for a payment. I think they forget we need that money to live off of

    That's awful about how long you have to wait for help too often are we hearing stories about too long waiting lists, not enough funding etc.

    I hope you managed to get some sleep. I know how hard it is though when you are in this state, I am the same but sleep will really help and I hope you get a good nights sleep if you haven't already. Feel free to mail me any time if you need to talk :hugs:

    Made a thread, it got deleted.

    I remember posting here before, and then somebody accused me of only offering to help a female user because I'm some sort of opportunist. (It's shame that I can't even try to help people who have similar problems to me. It's like I'm not even allowed to be a good human being)
    I miss the days I could post in this thread and get help or help people, even if I did do it anonymously.
    Deysey has politely told you the thread hasnt been deleted it has been moved to give you support from trained people (which generally means it was a rule breaking thread mentioning either suicide or self harm)

    This hasnt been done out of spite!!

    This thread is still here to help EVERYONE that accepts the support when given it.
    Noone here is a trained professional, but mentally ill people.

    Please dont go shouting your mouth off at people who are trying to help.
