About a month ago I spent a whole day doing only the things people have said will help my anxiety and depression.
Including but not limited to: making my bed, eating healthily, going for a walk, spending time in nature, having a bath, not using my phone or watching tv

Funnily enough, I didn’t feel any different at the end of the day

Thats like expecting to lose weight and have more energy after eating healthily for just one day. One day is a good start but you're going to have to continue with it if you want to see any sort of difference.

Have you been having enough hot baths lately?
What about a cup of tea?

One of the first things my CAMHS nurse said to me was "you are too intelligent to be having these problems", not so long after followed by "why don't you kill yourself?". Needless to say, the therapeutic relationship went swimmingly from there.

I have also been told I am too smart to suffer from MH problems. Nice one NHS. :dunce:

My mental health nurse is lovely but unfortunately he's leaving soon and I was told today that I'm too young for a diagnosis :')

I'm literally 18 in 3 months.

If they think you may have a personality disorder, they will not diagnose it under 18 (some won't diagnose under 20-21) because your personality is not fully formed at that age.

I never even had access to CAMHS when I was younger as my GP said, 'you don't want any labels when you're below 18. or any of those drugs either your brain is still developing and you don't want to interrupt that' and that was that.

Turns out that yes, even at 15 I was suffering from crippling anxiety and depression and nope, that didn't change waiting years.

Polite reminder: can patients kindly restrict crisises to office hours. Otherwise we will have to get the police to do our jobs for us.

I understand this but it's also kinda frustrating because realistically I'm not going to become a whole new person in 3 months.

Absolutely. Maybe if they hadn't basically told me to piss off, the earlier intervention would have been beneficial in preventing the problem getting worse. :dunce:

For what it's worth, I was a very different person at 20-21 to the one I was at 18. Things may well still change for you.

Ah bless you, I can imagine that was really rough. I hope you're doing better now! I know I've seen you on relationship threads and it seems that side of things is going well at least?

I can imagine that in a way. I don't even relate to the person I was at 15. There's just a lot of symptoms I fit that don't seem to be going away or getting any better, and it's really difficult to keep asking "what's wrong with me?"
