    Haha, do all the chores I wrote down on a list. Had a bad start to that as I overslept

    But that is nice to hear, I like to think a lot of things are relative so better is good

    Well that sounds... appealing
    Better is good, but we shall see.
    Thursdays are good days for me though.
    I dread Fridays

    It's the weekend, Fridays are the best. Are you at school or a job?

    So, the result of my CMHT assessment was basically was I shouldn't have been referred in the first place, as I am not severe enough.

    I feel like such a fraud, can't stop crying now :cry:
    Why would they say that? It seems you've been really struggling and you deserve their help! You should complain.

    You are not a fraud. At all. I cannot believe that even happened to you and I'm sorry that they made you feel like that. It's a stupid system that doesn't help us when we actually need it.

    Surely "not severe enough" encourages us to escalate our behaviours until we're able to get help. We want help before we get too bad, not after. Ugh. I hope you manage to find an alternative.

    My baby sister was rejected for therapy when she was an absolute mess and her life was falling apart because she wasn't "severe enough" and I just can't understand a system that doesn't support those that reach out and desperately ask for help.

    They've increased my depot injection by a ****e load and now I sleep 17 hours a day. How can they expect me to go to uni, urghh mental health sucks.

    On a side note, does anyone get or know anyone who gets depot injections? I'm only 20 and at the clinic they're all really old, I feel way too young to be on the injection

    A friend's fiance gets the depot injection. I think he's about 32 or 33 :yes:

    Sorry to hear yours has been increased. That must be really difficult to deal with :hugs:

    Having some cereal bars/packets of dried fruit/bananas on hand might be an idea for when you're too busy for breakfast. Glad you had a pretty good day
    Probably a good idea :yep:

    Had a nasty nightmare about a recuring fear of mine that i'm trying to get over had me feeling sufficiently down that I missed my lecture so I could curl up in bed and attempt some better sleep. Not exactly a nightmare after that but still an odd dream. Yay! The wierd dreams are back! -_-
    Feeling a bit better but i'm still in that sort of curl up in bed and ignore the world kinda mood. Probably more to do with my cold than anything else though. Feels like there's a bubble around me separating me from the rest of the world.

    I don't know if I should mention the nightmares to anyone like my therapist or not...

    Now, you are not a fraud and that's why: Doctors or other mental health personal are there for us to diagnose us and treat us. Our task is only to go to them, if we worry. So you are not a fraud to get there,
    to get tested and then referred to the right treatment. You would not call you a fraud, if you'd go there for physical reasons and later it turns out the original diagnosis and treatment would not be the right one, or? They just said "not severe enough", not "simulating". That is a huge difference. In addition doctors are not allmighty and not all equally gifted/experienced, thus it is human. (Of course some things are just illogic.)

    Yeah, don't worry and then, if you proove you were right, then suddenly: severly ill. Great way to solve problems. Same with society ...

    What that means, is that within limited financial resources, they are not able to offer you a service as they only have the money to treat those fall within their cut-off point. So don't take it personally.

    Bundles of treatment, to help you on your journey forward, are still available to you though. Literally a plethora options. You can access these services through the statutory, voluntary and private sector. Some within the private sector offer their therapeutic services for free (or a token payment) to patients on low income or students.

    It's called capitalism. If you don't tick the right boxes then there is no evidence to suggest it would be money wisely spent (value for money). Apparently, we love this concept and adore the business model. Capitalism is not there to support the vulnerable (perish the thought) :mad: It costs way too much...

    Don't you just love the political elite for their infinite wisdom?

    FYI, this is sarcasm, just in case anyone thinks I believe this bs

    Your "money wisely spent" is socialism. Capitalism is I call my doctor up and see them whenever I want for whatever I want in exchange for money.

    Other thing I guess is "good" is I have been diagnosed officially with hormone problems which is why I gained so much weight and been getting more tired the last 7 years, its good as its now recognised so I can get treatment but bad in the sense I have something that can be very bad wrong with me

    Finally have an appointment for intensive CBT for anxiety. My town has a system where you have to go up in 'steps', so that no-one gets more serious (aka expensive) treatment than they need. It's fair enough for people who are having like their first panic attack and just need to learn some breathing techniques, but if I had actually been shown what the steps were and what was provided at each one, I would have been able to tell them that the 'first step' had no chance in hell of actually helping me. The first person I saw was pretty much trying to teach me what anxiety is, I felt like I knew more than they did already. If I had been allowed to have input on what type of treatment I thought I needed, I would have already been seeing an intensive CBT therapist for several months, whereas now I've had a massive break from all kinds of therapy and it's going to be horrible starting up again with yet another new person.

    I have my doubts that even this 'level' will be able to provide anything I don't already know/haven't tried, but I suppose it's still better than nothing.
