    What are people's experiences of moving area and new mental health teams?

    How long will it be before I see the CMHT if my referral from old CMHT is accepted?

    This is such a stupid stupid thing but gonna say it anyway pls dont judge

    There is this motorbike on my street with one of these massive engines and every night at about 9ish it's engine revs as the drive goes off and i hate it so so much, it puts me so on edge and i feel like screaming when it happens so much so that i go into the bathroom to get away from it if i can although it is hard to predict exactly when it is going to happen.
    How pathetic

    sooooo i forgot the password for Team_McDreamy - but that is me i know i havent posted in here for months and months but oh well

    things at the moment are quite horrid to be frank. drifting from day to day in such a low, its like all my bones have been filled with lead, and theres a thick thick barrier blocking me from the outside world - everything is muffled and distorted and i cant make sense of it all. ive been slowly isolating and withdrawing for the past year or so now.. so i have like 1.5 friends at uni and 1 at home if you dont count my mum. if i miss too many days i'll get pulled in by the welfare team again so thats whats pushing me to go in every day, and every other minute is spent hiding in bed from the disaster that has become my life. years of hard work in therapy and taking medication and ive just thrown it down the drain by letting this monster creep back in.

    so yeah. sorry for the cloud of negativity that has inevitably followed me in.

    Moved hotel for a couple nights. Wifi works better here. :giggle:

    Not doing that well at the moment, physical stuff has decided to flare up majorly so im in a lot of pain and nothing is doing much. The mental things aren't going that well either. I suppose it could be doctor time when I go back, however it will be difficult for me to book a appointment because of how I don't know my hours.

    However, one bit of good news I got was that I've officially been accepted into my apprenticeship. And I start that less than a week after I come back. Hoping that means my resits came out okay since I haven't had the results yet and won't get them until I come back from holiday.

    Hope everyone's okay :jumphug:

    When I moved trusts it took around 6 weeks to get an appointment, but that was a brand new referral as my old cmht didn't refer me direct.

    It depends obviously on where you move, but I imagine that the wait will be until there is an appointment and when they can allocate you a CC. If you are staying in your trust it may be quicker, but from where I work, it seems to be around the average waiting time for a new appointment (~6 weeks). Sorry that's all I know!

    It took me 9 weeks to be placed into services, but that was mainly because I had to refer myself through the GP. Honestly, though, it was a bloody nightmare.

    Ah, meds. Stop ****ing me over, please. I went to the gym yesterday (got a new membership) and I felt so lightheaded.

    I applied for a mandatory reconsideration for my PIP decision today and I've to write a letter stating what I disagree with in the report, as a few things are the polar opposite of what I said at the medical plus what my GP has witnessed so I need to clarify a few things. Hopefully this will help get the 2 points I needed to get PIP and that it wont have to go to the appeal stage but I'm not getting my hopes up.

    I'm not sure if you are getting any support with this, but if not, going to the CAB can be helpful. From what I've heard and experienced, it can be helpful to explain exactly what support and that you require rather than just what you find difficult or your diagnosis etc. So like "I get anxiety in public places, therefore I require someone to go with me on a regular basis to help me calm down if I become anxious. I require this around 3 times a week so I can complete tasks such as shopping, going to appointments and attending my weekly swimming group". That's a basic example though.

    Going through exactly the same process myself. Wishing you the best of luck.

    Life is an unending nightmare. I cant even articulate just how relentlessly horrific existing is. I'm not exaggerating or just focusing on the bad when I say drama, trouble and bad news follow me everywhere. Nothing ever ever goes my way. I was saying this to my support worker and even she agrees that it's a constant stream of badness in my life. I applied for ESA in May and still not even had an assessment date. I have no money. I got rejected by PIP which quite frankly takes the piss. I cant go out, staff are having to cook my meals, i'm doing nothing except pacing around the garden in an absolute state all day. My niece died completely unexpectedly last week too. Don't even know how I feel about that. Not sure have processed it. Basically it feels like my head is in a vice and so is my heart. I cant think straight, I am just hurting. The agitation and sleeplessness and night terrors and flashbacks and depression and food issues are just on another level.

    CPN meeting went alright. I am gonna stick with the meds and see if the side effects die down. We will review if necessary.

    I am in a foul mood, however, and not even a mug of tea is helping atm.

    Thank you! :hugs: The company are actually very flexible regarding my physical illness (that they know of because of issues that it has caused with me doing certain things) and don't really mind if I need to take a day off due to hospital appointments as long as I don't miss important days. I currently work for them as a weekend gal but since I finished college I have pretty much been full time anyway. They all recommended me for the scheme and the area manager is lovely and said to me that they'll do whatever is needed to help me threw which is good. (Winter is coming... I get constantly Ill during winter which they already had to deal with when I started. I needed up having to take my second day at work off and then a month afterwards a week off was needed because the doctors signed me off as I couldn't really do much :facepalm: )

    I've known about my acceptance for awhile but it wasn't officially until a couple of days ago when I got the email saying my official start date and welcome letter :giggle:

    I went into the Irish pub style restaurant at Disney springs a few nights ago and it was basically sheep, Guinness and tea related merch in there. :giggle:
