    No problem. I know, it's really odd. And I'd ask my GP except that I can't get an appointment until the end of April now as over 70 people missed appointments last month at my medical practice (they have signs up about it). So I reckon next Friday I'll get a repeat prescription and make an appointment to see my GP. It's possible that the dose will increase anyway.
    Its basically so your not suddenly starting, drs like to build you up to what you would be taking. So id actually split 3 tablets in half and take 6 days half dose, and then 4 days of normal dose.

    When i sqarted quetiapine i had to take a week of 25mg, a week of 50mg a week of 75mg and then onto 150mg i think.

    I know it'll have to be built up, since they come in 100mg tablets too.

    My mental health has taken an absolute beating recently. Feel like I'm letting everyone down and that I'm ruining relationships by not pushing myself as hard as I should during my placement.

    I know what I'm capable of but I'm just not meeting my own expectations and that's stopping me from working harder to actually do stuff.

    I just feel a bit rotten at the moment.

    You could try crisis line and hope you get someone better this time I suppose, but could understand why you wouldn't want to after last night. Try your GP tomorrow? I wouldn't discharge yourself from CMHT just yet, they're being useless at the minute I know but hopefully at some point they'll be helpful, just needs to be a bit (a lot) sooner You are definitely not a waste of time though! :penguinhug:

    Please don't discharge yourself from the CMHT - it's important you get proper specialist treatment and care. GPs only know so much about drugs used for mental illness, so it's important to stay with the CMHT, even if they are mucking you about atm.

    Phone your GP surgery first thing tomorrow morning and tell them you're in a crisis. I'll be on and off TSR most of the evening if you need to chat. If it's easier, I can give you my mobile number to text

    You're not wasting anyone's time in the slightest: you are very ill and need treatment. Same as a diabetic needs insulin injections, and a cancer patient needs chemo and a Macmillan nurse. Just because it's mental health doesn't mean you are wasting someone's time :nah:

    Do try and get the GP emergency appointment tomorrow. Given I'm still in a psychotic crisis, I can empathise with the need to just sit and talk to someone.

    i'm so so mad about everything mental illness has robbed from me. how im unable to enjoy anything, to any extent. ive given myself 4 days off after handing in my last bit of coursework before tackling revision and the whole time its been a painful existence. what is the point in doing anything nice, or taking time out, when you feel so ****ing overwhelmingly dreadful? I could be lying on a Caribbean island or be trapped in the depths of hell, it doesn't feel any ****ing different.

    That was all me today during school too, and now I've started my antidepressants and one dose has already made me feel nauseous. But you can do it and it will get better, I promise. :jumphug:

    This is normal when you first start antidepressants. Hang on in there it should hopefully wear off soon.
