Was reading the messages about avoiding suicide and I must admit ive been having idealisation over it by taking a handful of pills but I know it's not the answer to a "temporary" illness yet I find the system only kicks in when an attempt is made after which you'd be lucky yo get a hospital bed and proper care in my view, can you request to be admitted or do you have to attempt or threaten?
I had an appointment last week as an urgent referral to mental health team and was yet again just assessed rather than be seen by a psychiatrist (triage) and was told that i should only ring the crisis line when I had planned and was going to commit suicide... Now then forgive me if I'm way off the mark but if someone has gone to the trouble of planning, is ready then the decision is made and I doubt that person will then think about picking up the phone... I was sooooo annoyed and felt that the person I was being assssed by had no idea what folk go through with depression and anxiety. Suffice it to say I am going to be seen by the consultant but was told he would be on holiday and it will be back end Jan (22nd).
Its all wrong isn't it.
