Where is the 'bar'?

Posted , 5 users are following.

Tomorrow I might be in trouble. I don't know whether or not to tell mental health everything or not. I have had 3 episodes of where I just lost control. And they've been quite recent. All I know is that this life seems like imprisonment enough, I no longer view being locked in a cell helpful in anyway. What do I do? Tell everything? When apart from the obvious in killing somebody do they intervene and not give you a choice in being put away?

    Hi Nick, I often find myself wondering the same thing, I too have an appt Thursday 😳

    I guess if we want help to get better, we have to be honest and tell everything so they know the best way to help us 😏 Whatever the consequences are, it will be a step in the right direction to healing even if it doesn't seem it at the time

    I hope this helps a little and wish you well with your appointment, keep in touch, good luck 😉

      Hi Belinda. Thanks for your reply, I will be thinking of you on Thursday. I think I'm now at a point that just disappearing somewhere with no meds is my only option. Just wait for body to stop working. I don't know. I don't know what to do anymore. I don't fit in here. I don't fit in anywhere. Do you feel like that? You are right of course, cant take the next step if I stay silent. Thank you, good luck on Thursday, Nick.

      You're not alone Nick, running away has always been easy for me, even when married before with mortgage and great job, when the #h*t hits the fan, I up and go and don't look back, go hide under a rock! 😟

      Yes I do have the same feeling's as you, don't belong amongst family, socially I only feel I fit in if I'm drunk and making people laugh and the list goes on!

      I want to put a stop to this and survive, so I will be honest on Thursday, even at a risk of consequences, I sincerely hope you do the same! Please keep us updated with how you get on xxx

    Not sure how to reply to this other than to tell you how amazing you are, think keeping the appointment and being honest is the best way...isn't that what you always tell me?

    Short of that if you do need to run away please make sure you run in my direction smile

    Love you nick xxxxx

      You're right. Kept appointment and told her everything, told her I also thought about not telling too. She took in what I said but she also said that if I never call her she thinks I'm ok so its important to do things like call. I wish I could run away in your direction, I'm still up for stealing a ship, love you too xx

    Hi nick

    sorry to hear you u having a rough time of things right now.

    I would be inclined to be absolutely honest. If the mental health team only have half the story, then they will be unable to help you properly. Losing control is scary and you need their advice on what steps you can take to avoid further episodes. Some medication can trigger rages, it may be a chemical imbalance causing this behaviour. Therefore it's worth telling the truth to enable them to try and help you.

    if you feel up to it, please let me know how your appointment goes.wishing you better

    god bless ♥

      Hi Lorraine, I was honest, I even told her about not telling her. She said it could be frustration. Which is a good value point. But sometimes there's no instigation, maybe its dwelling over things for days but its hard to put down that reasoning when there's no direct link. I don't know. I have always had a temper but not in spoilt brat way or a bully way. Lol perhaps we should organise a bank job, get us all some escape money! 😊 thank you for the hit up about meds too, I'll get Dr to double check everything.

      Hi again, how'd it go? Was you honest? 😊

      I'm having yet another bad day, just pretended to be asleep when crisis care team came round, didn't mean to waste their time but I wasn't expecting them 😳

      Dreading being honest with psychiatrist tomorrow, got some bad crap going on in my head 😢

      Hope you're not too strung out after you're appointment today, would like to know how you got on and I'm hoping you might be feeling just a little lighter after seeing him/her

      Xxx

      Hi Belinda, appointment today was nervous, but yes did tell truth about incidents, also told her I had been thinking in not telling her. Well its been noted, and some stuff will be passed on but also she was straight forward in telling me that if I didn't tell her we would be back at the start where I keep everything to myself. So a polite pointing out if you like. I understand where she's coming from. But like yourself I wanted to hide today, are you ok?

      Its only really coming back home I had trouble. For some reason I'm in bad books. Being treated like an outcast spoken to like crap. Gone out of my way, now I'm feeling psycho again and wanting to spoon peoples eyes out.

      Lol you have a good sense of humour. Amazon nutbag section, that's a new one, I might be shopping there myself if people don't learn to talk to me straight. Home well I cant put down what's going on precisely as its their business not mine but I can tell you that I'm getting annoyed with being the mental punch bag.

      Sorry, didn't mean to pry 😉

      Probably an idea if you tell them how they make you feel so they're aware? Maybe on a calm day?

      If not, let some steam off on here, give the ole keyboard a bashing! 😂😂

      So what's the outcome of your appt today? Meds? Counselling? Therapy? All of the above? Or are you normal? If so, you shouldn't be on here chatting to us cranks 😂😂😂

      No you're ok. They already know, well the majority of it. There's things I cant or am not able to talk easily about. I'm already in crank club lol, on meds already, going to get therapy soon, waiting list. Tablets kicking in now, I wouldn't have done it but I'm desperate to sleep and I'm freezing. Came home and threw up, probably all the overthinking.or bad lunch lol.took 2 dose of sleep stuff. Sorry if I fade out, but wil be back tomorrow to see how you are and get on.😊
