    Wanted to tell my psychiatrist the truth about how I have been feeling this morning but I couldn't because my mum was in the meeting. I'm officially on a community treatment order now

    Can you ask for your next appointment to be without your mum? If you're over 18 it should be fine.


    How do you feel about the CTO?

    I'm currently on holiday visiting family and the voices are being incredibly aggressive, loud, and trying to force me to do things I don't want to. I just want to enjoy my holiday but they won't let me. I'm starting to really fear that what they're saying will happen.

    Yeah it was a one off that my mum came, they wanted to discuss the CTO with her as she's my closest relative.

    I don't think I need a CTO to be honest, i've said i'll keep taking my meds and go to my appointments. It just feels like another thing hanging over me just like the section 3.

    Sorry to hear the voices are being awful, but what they are saying will not happen, they are lying.

    I hope you're right. But everyday it seems more and more likely. I go home tomorrow and I hate how much they ruined things. I'm really scared about what my psychiatrist will say/do when I get back.


    The CTO sounds like a load of ****, I can see why you dislike it especially if you're willing to do everything of your own free will but you have that hanging over you. :console:

    Have you tried any medication for your panic attacks?

    I had a huge panic attack on saturday and although my spouse helped a lot to calm me down, the klonopin I took made the biggest difference.

    I've tried diazepam and a few antidepressants in the past for panic attacks. I want to manage them and OCD without meds but I won't rule meds in the future maybe, just right now.

    ----------
    I applied for some voluntary work with animals and then as a young person's befriender Hoping it might help me get back into full time work through time. My therapist recommended it so might as well give it a shot.

    The DSA assessment is more like an informal chat, rather than a formal assessment. My situation is completely different; but I'm sure some of the others here can give you more information.

    Good luck!

    :jumphug: for everything. DSA assessment is a lot less scary than it sounds. If you need them to go at a slower pace or break things down, just tell them - they're there to help put everything in place that you need for uni and to give you the best opportunity to excel

    You told me earlier that my voices were lying: it sounds like your's are just as aggressive liars too. :hugs: I hope they stop soon.
