    Well that's completely up to you but to be honest, driving on roads isn't about getting an adrenaline rush; it's about getting to where you need to be without being a danger to others along the way.

    If something unexpected happened and you were driving far too fast, you'd have no chance. So many people get killed on the roads, and it's ridiculously simple to avoid.

    A friend of mine was killed by a driver going too fast. Fair enough he ran out into the road when he should have been paying attention, but if the woman hadn't been speeding she could have stopped. She did time for it.

    so broken :cry: still no call from the crisis team. I think GP just hasn't called them. CT are useless but that's more when they've actually made contact. I sort of got the impression GP couldn't care less as well. considering ringing crisis team but then I don't want their support, just want to know if I was referred. if I find out she hasn't im not going back. I know she couldn't give a **** and im tired. she never does anything and is forever leaving me without meds so I really cant be ****ed anymore. just given up on life entirely.
    Hey, I just wanted to say that most people with chronic health problems (mental or physical) will have problems with getting the help they need. I know i have had problems with GPs, psychiatrists etc. myself.

    There are bad or uncaring gps or doctors who can't spend the time but the main reason is that the primary care system is on the verge of collapse and is busting at the seams.

    Please don't give up, I know you probably feel like they don't care and have given up on you but it is more that you are fighting against a system rather than the apathy or incompetence of individual doctors and you will get there in the end. It is sad but it can take people such a long time and so many missed opportunities by the general health or mental health services for people to get the help they need.

    thanks. I guess the reason I am so annoyed/upset is that I KNOW shes nice... amongst students shes the one that everyone says is lovely and the best etc. she used to be nice to me and actually care and now (since BPD dx) I feel like she thinks im making it up and she just couldn't give a ****. shes so nice to everyone and it really really bothers me. the reason I went to her in the first place was because my first GP was so **** and incompetent. I feel like theyre just waiting for me to end it all and be done with me.

    The problem is that, on the roads, it is basically the most reckless and dangerous act imaginable.

    A car is one of the most dangerous weapons in our society and is the biggest cause of death other than old age or illness.

    I would imagine most people will know of someone injured or even killed in a car crash. Personally, I had an uncle who was a military hero who was senselessy mown down and killed by a boy racer jumping a red light and also, one of my mum's close friends decided to race another car on the road and ended up flipping over and killing herself and her passenger. That was a sad funeral - they were only in their early thirties. All this for a bit of speed and craziness.

    I am not having a go btw and think it is cool to enjoy speed but I think that fast cars should be enjoyed on race tracks and not on the roads.

    I'd rather be bored and me/the driver sticking to the speed limit than to risk myself and others being reckless to be honest.

    Its one thing being confident that you or the driver can control the vehicle at a given speed but that isnt the only point of a speed limit.

    It is also designed to take into account other people making mistakes and giving a margin of error for that and a better chance of survival.

    You don't have to lose control, make a mistake or fail to be aware of your surroundings to be in a car accident - it could be someone else's mistake and if you are going too fast then you are being slightly reckless.

    I sincerely doubt this. It will be more of the case that they are limited in time and under pressure so don't always make the best decisions or advocate for you with other services.

    It is very difficult for first line services to treat mental health because the resources are so limited and bed spaces and specialists are so oversubscribed.

    I really think you are more a victim of underfunding and cutbacks than anything else.

    I know that isn't a comfort but at the same time, people get there in the end, just the current state of things make it so so difficult in many cases.
