My husband has booked a gp appointment to get some tablets.

Counselling is a good idea!! All the counsellors in my area are really heavily booked.

My ward round went ok, Peter didnt make it. They could see I was heavily suocidal and upped my antidepressant to beyond the max dose. Leave is really up to my risk at the time.

Glad ok ward round Hash. Could you ask your care co-ordination to organise a carer's assessment for Peter which might get support for him? Here it used to be a charity that offered support which was not amazing but it has now changed so that social services do the assessment and they have more resources available.

Glad he got gp appointment booked.

Is he having to travel far to see you or are you in a hospital near your house? I know when my husband had surgery recently it was in a local hospital but still hard to get there at visiting times.

Glad it is a local hospital for you. Hope the carer's people call and help.

Sorry you are so distressed. It can be so tough in hospital as well. So hoping today has improved for you and your distraction box helps you.

Hash,

sorry you still feel so awful.
Have you talked to the doctors at all about changing meds? Were you on the max dose before they tried to super increase it? I know docs are often not keen to do a meds change during a crisis, but I can hear how desperate you are.

Praying for you now,

Had an awful day yesterday. Doc refused to change meds even though he can apply to change my anti depressant to the super dose.

Peter got some tablets from the doc.

Out with Peter today much better.

Glad Peter got something to help.

Shame they not increasing medication for you. Have they explained why? Have they put you back on the dose you were on before you were reducing under your gp/mental health team or back on the medication if you stopped it?

What are they doing to help you? Hope your box of activities is proving helpful for you.

THey put me back on the max dose of my anti depressant.

They want me discharged sooner rather than later they want me out in the community.

Discharge sounds encouraging. Will you be able to go back to your weekly therapy group for support? Hope things continue going well.

Hash,

Sounds like your leave is working well. I am so glad the suicidal urges have eased.
Hoping it can be a good time for both of you,

Are you discharged now or back in hospital? Hope the return of your medication to what you were on when you were stable is helping.

Sorry you struggled whilst on holiday, could you go to a hospital there if you still there and struggling?

I am back at home after being discharged on Monday, my discharge was very upsetting as I didnt see my regular psychiatrist and they got my meds all wrong. So far I have had the home treatment team coming in once a day and have been keeping busy with family and friends other times. I am not sleeping particularly well.

Peter is better after his little angry anxious spell and we are communicating well.

I had my review for my therapy on wednesday and they want me to guarantee I am not going to attempt suicide or self harm for the rest of therapy i.e. the next six months which we think is unreasonable. My thoughts are I just move to another form of self harm e.g. Starvation, binge and purge or I secretly self harm and they would never know.

I feel I am being pushed into a corner.

Not sure but I think we need to start a new thread as this seems like its going on forever.

I do think 'no-harm' contracts cause more problems than they solve, and encourage secret, but more dangerous, forms of harm.

Hi, sorry staffing meant you saw a different dr but glad you home and having daily support as you transition.

It is hard. The NHS seems to like a no harm contract etc. I lost the chance of group therapy once as I had been in hospital for two weeks. It seems to just be how they do it. It was explained to me as I needed to be stable for it to work. Also that if I was still exhibiting certain behaviours then the therapy was either not working or might be making me worse which they did not want!! Maybe they think it is too much for you?

Maybe they do think it is too much for me or they want to keep the statistics good on their course and they dont want a Suicide on their hands.

I will just have to give it my best shot and if I dont get through the six months then that is okay.

My plan is to starve myself as that will have the same effect as cutting and they wont realise what I am doing as I have alot of weight to loose.
