    You wanna talk about things?

    My mother left me an email a few hours ago saying to get in touch asap. Only she's not online and her phone is off. My brother is also not picking up his phone. Now I'm really really worried and don't know what to do. Any ideas? So many horrible possibilities are going through my mind.
    I hope everything works out okay mate :hugs:

    Seems lots of people are having a rough night :hugs:

    Does anybody find that they are triggered by really insignificant things? A song that was always on the radio while I was an inpatient just came on shuffle and it's really thrown me.

    I get that sometimes - especially with songs. I listened to alot of an A Day To Remember album when I was inpatient and when I listen to it now it makes me feel weird. Dunno if theres a solution to it though...

    So, I walked into town and got the bus to a strange place and got off in the right place and went and found a building I've only been to once to play an instrument I've never properly played and even did an improvised solo when I was asked and then I didn't panic when the person giving me a lift back forgot and walked across town to find a bus station and didn't freak out (much!) when it said the next bus was at 22:55 instead of 20:55 and I asked another driver if it was coming, he said it was so I waited and it did and I got it back and then walked home :woo:

    Wow that was long! But given that I'm terrified of new people and places and public transport actually pretty proud :yep: And for anyone who wants to know, carrying a tenor saxophone for 4+ miles in one evening is not to be recommended :lol:

    Doubt there is a solution tbh, memories of inpatient are always going to be there, for me anyway. Just wondered if other people had similar associations. Comforting yet a bit poo at the same time.

    I get triggered by smells, songs, sounds, sights; pretty much anything. Songs tend to be one of the more common ones, though. I can't listen to a band i was listening to when i had my first car accident, for one.

    Being easily triggered forces you to deal with things a bit better though, because there's no way in hell you're gonna avoid all of them. The only logical thing is to confront them, or you'd be a nervous wreck the entire time.

    Smells is a big one for me too. Can't wear the deodorant I was wearing when I had my first psych assessment and smelling the perfume my named nurse wore makes me panic

    It's amazing how the brain can automatically associate something with something though.

    :jumphug: Maybe try making it harder to be unsafe. I do that sometimes by hiding my shoes and that - it just gives me more time to think about what I'm doing. I hope you do get some sleep tonight.

    That's terrible. Some trusts are just goddamn awful. I know it's a **** option but there is always A&E if you really need it. It sounds like you are having such a rough time with everything. :hugs: Well done for making a plan, even if you can't follow it at the mo, it is there if you feel you can use it in the future.
    thanks. I hate the region im in for uni, they are SHOCKING. I've been this unstable every day for over a year and still haven't been seen for more than 5 mins by a psych, still no diagnosis. im at my wits end with it all tbh I feel like doing damage. its ****

    i don't know about that, but in lectures recently we've been learning about how different areas of the brain connect to each other so that you're able to associate sights with smells and memories and that the more significant the event or the more the sequence of events is carried out, the stronger those connections get until all you need is one of those events to happen and suddenly all those feelings get dragged out of your long term memory and you become aware of them the human brain is crazy fascinating

    That sounds utterly utterly **** on their part. I really hope they get their act together soon and sort out some support for you, you really need and deserve it.
