    Completely wacky suggestion but along with finding a way of getting help, is there something you can do instead of work until the pool re opens? Volunteer or anything so your out of the house? I know that your busy but I also hear from what your saying is what helps you the most is being busy and contributing to your community which is really good for mental health and well being.

    Of course this is only if it fits in with whatever help you end up accessing. Just a suggestion.

    Thanks hun. I do as much as I can at the school, reading etc. I wish I could do tuck shop but at this school I'm unable
    To take my two youngest with me as its a small tuck shop. At one of their old schools, I did it every week and took the younger kids with me all day and it was great.

    I wish I could go to the gym more. I've been asked to do a few full in aerobics classes but there isn't much work there. I suppose they might like some help in other areas. I'm pretty sure they would actually and there'd be no problem having the children there. Good idea, thanks.

    It's pretty crazy really. Between the kids activities and all my friends (love coffee shops) I am fairly busy, it's just when ok at home and broke (like I am this week) I can't afford to do much and it adds to the depression.

    I turned down a girls weekend (alcohol was banned) last weekened because I didn't want to be a downer on the group.

    Trying to get through to mental health intake officer at one of the hospitals an hour away. They can't guarantee me a call back before next week

    I'm getting so down about this. I've ring three hospitals now and can't even get a call back. Dh is ringing another one now.

    This might sound silly but with the work your DH does, wouldn't he know how to get you in or have any contacts in the hospitals?

    Yeah he gets people admitted to toowoomba hospital all the time. They are people with sometimes less issues than me except they are all in domestic violence situations as well.

    I have the number for the acute care team direct at RBH. I can message it to you if you like. Not sure if that is to far for you. I know you want something in your area but they may have contacts. Also there is Eating Disorders QLD who may know of something as well.

    Dh just had a long chat to the guy at toowoomba, he said they would definitely take me but I have to go through the local hospital and they are really crap he basically said, they don't like to admit anybody at all, I couldn't even get a call back.

    Ok, Just got a call from
    Another hospital and will have an appointment next Wednesday but he went on and on how hospital beds are short and I wouldn't be admitted, I said I need and want help and there's no services where I am and he said 'well that's the bad luck about living In the bush.' Gee thanks.
