Just wondering if anyone has been admitted to hospital due to anxiety and has it been because of an attempt to hurt yourself or others or because of thoughts of self harm.
when I'm in the throws of anxiety and am breaking down crying because of thoughts my mind is often in the no hope situation and I get thoughts if taking an overdose or hurting myself and I'm starting to get a bit concerned.
i would like to know of peoples experiences as whilst I was at the psychiatric unit for assessment with the nurse which was very disappointing she said I shouldn't use the crisis line or A&E unless I was having serious thoughts of stop harm or was going yo carry it out. I felt as though an avenue if help was being taken away from me. I'm not wanting to keep taking diazepam either although it's well within the limits (I can take 3 x 5mg per day if necessary) but tend only to take half or one and not every day.
having a terrible day today more with thoughts rather than physical symptoms of anxiety so think it could be the depression coming through as my anxiety has been really under control over the last few days?
if my thoughts keep turning to harm at what stage should I ask for help or visit A&E and what experiences has anyone had?
