    Just saw this.

    ****ing hell. :console: That's horrible. I would really suggest not going back to her. Is there any way you can report her?
    Oh believe me, there is absolutely zero chance of me willingly seeing her again, thankfully I don't have to. On leaving, the hospital set up an appointment with a psychiatrist who I assumed was the one who sectioned me - so I called up and they told me she had retired. So basically her last act was to section someone on frivolous grounds. :mad:

    I don't trust the whole clinic now so gotta somehow find another psychiatrist. However, as I live in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere I'm probably going to have to go further out, which means driving like 45 minutes each way. :sigh:

    How're you doing? I was trying to read over what I missed but yeah...concentration problems

    TLG UPDATE

    Exciting times, peeps: I think *touches wood* I've FINALLY solved the issue on my laptop which meant I couldn't use the TSR website but only the app on my phone. Turns out my laptop had not one, but TWO viruses, and some other issues as well. Think it's all resolved now, so hoping to be on here more in future.

    Sabertooth : really sorry to hear you were sectioned. Remember you can PM me if that would ever help :hugs:
    Good to hear! I'd really recommend getting Adblock Plus to avoid many dangerous popups and ads.

    And thanks for the PM offer, I apologize in advance for anything I might send you.

    No need to apologise in advance/at all for anything! :hugs:

    I've got Adblock Ultimate, plus Sophos anti-virus (via uni). Hopefully that'll do the trick :yep:

    a) it's extremely difficult to prove that a psychiatrist misrepresented things and b) she retired last week! I know! ****ing ridiculous, I saw her once, she sectioned me, then she retired. So angry.

    My wife is urging me to see someone the next town over, but that's a 40minute drive each way and if I'm seeing them every few weeks it's a lot of driving, which I'm not really the biggest fan of. :/

    I'm so worried about cameras and microphones in my place but my wife gets angry everytime I even mention them. I'm also finding it extremely hard to be in public, all the noise people make is making me feel so uncomfortable. Thank **** I have klonopin.

    Thanks for the reply, buddy. I might look into if I have any recourse but tbh with how I'm feeling right now I probably couldn't put things together.


    How're things with you?
    Hmm I guess that's true
    Wait what!!! Yeah that's ****ing ridiculous! Ugh that's just awful! Man you deserve to see someone actually capable of curing you!

    Maybe hats the only options! Is there a train service you can use at all? I don't know if they trains over there a lot tbh but I thought I'd ask. Yeah that's quite long but surely it's worth it though?
    Ah well that's not ideal but maybe it would help you overcome your dislike of driving?

    Did they ask for permission to put them in? If not that's a breach of privacy and they need to be removed asap! Why does she get angry at you? Surely if you're in discomfort she should comfort you? Why were they installed?
    Aw no I'm sorry to hear that! Well just take things one step at a time and you'll defo get there! I promise!

    No worries! Always here if you need someone!
    Hmm well defo look into it and just see how you feel about it.

    I'm improving! My new therapist is helping a lot and I'm starting to feel less and less anxious about things, even if I was diagnosed with 'High Anxiety' today. But yeah I'm defo improving and I can feel the difference already!
    Thanks for asking!

    I'm bad for grinding and clenching my teeth without realising it too. My jaw gets so sore from it, sometimes it is worse than any toothache I've ever had. I think I clench out of anxiety and stress as I clench my shoulders when I'm stressed too without realizing it.

    Hope your jaw feels better soon :hugs:

    Applied for a job and received a fairly rude sounding email back that they won't be taking my application forward as there's gaps in my CV (from doing my degree and being on ESA for six months). I've got two days left in work and I'm tempted to not go in after that. I was worried that being on ESA and being a graduate would work against me whilst looking for jobs; and this just confirmed it.

    Yeah I did mention I was at uni and the dates and no didn't mention ESA; I was doing some volunteering/distance learning during this time which is mentioned on my CV and in my hometown (I moved to another part of the country a few months ago) there is a lot of unemployment so a few months gap isn't really seen as an issue. He also mentioned that my employment was unstable because I had short term contracts in different sectors; these were during the recession - in my hometown during this time you were really lucky to have a job! I've never had any problems with gaps before myself; I think maybe this particular recruiter has unrealistic and/or outdated views on employment.

    One of the service users mum called up their CMHT to say how pleased they were with me.

    That's the same CMHT I am under. Felt nice knowing I've proved to my CCO and everyone that I AM good at my job despite having this diagnosis - to all those who doubted me when I said I wanted to work in mental health.*

    She sounds like a horrible woman. :hugs:

    I've not posted much, so you've not missed much from me. My CPN is off on his holidays, but he is back next week. Just trying to keep myself busy, work, reading, music. But I still get periods of sadness, and it really sucks.

    Had a bit of a disappointing encounter at work today. One of my service users has been harming someone else and I became concerned. I spoke to his care coordinator and she told me not to worry about it. I wasn't happy so I spoke to my manager who agreed with me that it was concerning and would possibly be a safeguarding concern. I emailed the care coordinator again and she didn't respond. My manager asked me what was going on so I spoke to the deputy manager of the cmht to seek advice. After this the care coordinator sent me a blunt email saying we will talk today. So I had a chat with her. She was quite confrontational around how I went to the manager and it wasn't needed. She said she was going to report me but didn't in the end.

    I'm so confused and annoyed. I was just following up a concern - there was risk of real harm to someone. I feel like ****. Feel like I did the wrong thing and I've pissed off the staff. I don't know what to do. Just feel like not going into work tomorrow. Theoretically I think I did the right thing, but maybe I was harsh to speak to the manager. I don't know. Just hating myself.
