I was diagnosed on Thursday after being assessed and have been referred to the stage 2 mental health team as a priority due to suicidal tendencies, following a concerted attempt at taking my life on the Sunday previous. I was assured someone from the mental health unit would be contacting me with a view to putting emergency measures in place. Unfortunately this hasnt happened and being in the bottom of a low totally unmedicated and living alone is quickly become a nightmare even with the support of my friends via facebook.
When i was diagnosed i was asked if anyone else withinin my family was treated for depressive states , i have found out unbeknown to myself that 3 of my siblings suffered from depression at one point or another and my sister pointed out that the indications of myself having this were apparent at 13 years old , i am gonna be 46 in April , i have kept this nightmare within myself for 32 years with no medication , support or anything , but stresses over the last two years and last few months in particular led to a major episode last week and is continuing to deepen. It has cost me my relationship of ten months and i am now at my wits end because the promised support hasn't materialised , the fact that i live alone is making the situation even more desperate , i need help now , not in a couple of weeks time , that may be too late
