I have had problems with my head on and off all my life however around 7 years ago they started to get really bad and now I take a high dose of medication which I have been doing for years now. I get side effects and I always thought the side effects were the better option. I have recently been thinking though, is this it now? My GP keeps saying all he can do is refer me to a mental health team who for reasons I have I really do not like, seriously deeply do not like to the point that I am not going back, they are really unfair in the way they treat certain groups of people but this seems to be the only option he has. I don't have any money so I can not get a private Dr and I don't have things like parents and stuff to ask to help me. So I thought what is the strategy here? I get repeat prescriptions and when I go to my GP for reviews all they do is ask me if I am going to hurt myself again. They just tick their little boxes and off I go for months. So I tapered off the meds, not completely, and now I am awful, I was right it was better when I was taking the full dose. I keep hearing voices, I am so depressed and unhappy. I think dreadfull thoughts all the time. I keep thinking people are talking about me and doing stuff to me. So I have to start taking the tablets again. Every day , nothing changes. Is this normal for the NHS to do this to people. Surely this can not go on.
