    I saw my GP again. Had a breakdown. Cried, laughed, cried some more and then had a panic attack. Been referred to Psychiatrist, put on a waiting list for CBT and been prescribed Sertraline and Valium. What a day.


    Have you been on Sertraline before?

    Found this so useful! I have just gone back into education as an access student (hoping to be a mental health nurse). It's a big workload and my heart rate has reached 119bpm at one point. After dealing with depression and GAD for several years I know when to slow down and ask for help, but often feel patronised so it is really nice to see others supporting one another. x

    CMHT for the past year 1 1/2 now as I was with EIS for 3 years (although may be going back to work there as an assistant psychologist, we shall see if I get an interview)

    Sorry to hear that Saber *
    Getting that kind of opportunity would be awesome but I'm not sure how I'd feel about working with people who used to treat me. Is it not something that worries you?

    No it's a different team, sorry should have explained. I was with the team in a different part of London so won't know anyone here if I get it.

    Oh ok, that would be a lot less awkward

    Hope you get the job - I think working with the EIT would be pretty rewarding. Especially if the patients you get like milkshake (I would get so fat ).

    I would be doing the social group so trips to the cinema and stuff with them yay! But it's open to everyone on my course (46 people) so competition is tight. But I'm one of the only ones with clinical experience.

    I have yes, it was a much better experience than Fluxotine i think it was when I was on that. Flux I was getting an hour an a half sleep max. Curious about this Valium thing though supposed to be really strong.

    Struggling so much. I think I might have to, for the first time, hand in my essays late and submit in mitigating circumstances. I can't concentrate. My head hurts. My eyes hurt. My thoughts are so so bad. The stupid depo injection has made my period return. The stupid trazodone isn't probably helping my headaches or my thoughts.

    I feel so alone. The SO thinks I should ask for help. I have. It's mitigating circumstances or nothing. I feel like he doesn't understand why I'm so petrified of them. I feel as if all I do is annoy him with my problems and what can he do? **** all. He probably hates me for it.

    I hate being ill. I hate my emotions.

    Why don't you want to apply for mitigating circumstances?

    I would have to wait until January to find out if my circumstances were accepted. I have also prided myself on the fact that I've handed in essays before while psychotic/badly struggling and have done well. Feel like I can't justify it this time because I've done well before. I've never handed in a thing late in my life.

    That would be so awesome! Good luck. The activities really helped me find a point in getting out of bed and showering after I dropped out of university. There also was a weekly football kickabout, which I really enjoyed and i got some much needed exercise. Gave me some meaning in life. But yeah, hopefully that extra experience will get you the job.



    Just did the test. Will be amazed if I get a C.

    Hi!

    I've been on mirtazapine myself, and it caused issues for me also. Definitely phone up and get an appointment. Do you have a CPN?
    What's a CPN? I'm on sumatriptan for my migraines so my medication options are really limited, considering braving the migraines because I can't really cope on or off mirtazapine. I'm going to phone for an appointment tomorrow, just hope they have a slot available.

    Just got out of class. Voices were/are so ****ing loud. I've taken 4 klonopin and it hasn't helped at all. Weighing up whether to take a 5th... Meant to go to a revision session but I'm a mess. I don't feel safe, people kept talking about me in class and now I'm worried there's cameras watching me -. That's why they sectioned me beofre but I can't go back to the "doctor" or they will do it again. They can put cameras everywhere whenever I'm not here. I can see a shadow under the door, i knew I should carry a knife - i keep looking at the door and can see the shadow moving it's locked but I don't put that past them. I really don't feel safe.

    I don't know, is this the klonopin playing with me? Or are they just messing?

    ah, I really need to stop ticking the anon box, makes it impossible to keep track of people replying or not

    Community (can't remember what the P stands for) Nurse (pretty much a mental health nurse; I meet mine weekly or so). I am also on sumatriptan for migraines. Mental health medication really is trial and error. Some meds you will get side effects, others you won't. So you might be better suited on something else.

    :console: I really wish there was more I could do to help. Please stay safe, Saber. My inbox is always open. Is there anyone you can call?
