    If your now counted as Sunshine Coast does that mean Nambour hospital? I know a great mental health nurse that I did counselling sessions with across the road at Selenglor Private hospital. She works out of a demountable down behind the hospital. I saw her as a public patient on a mental health plan and it was free. I'm assuming you have a mental health plan. She was excellent.

I feel the govt has its priorities wrong and there needs to be more money spent on providing health services rather than sports stadiums and huge paycheques and retirement funds for politians and all the rest of the money they waste it revolts me. Some help has got to be better than nothing. When you feel better you might want to approach politians or media and start something to make a change.
    No, the stuff ups as to which area I am in have been unacceptable and distressing though. It's not about beds just about areas. The poor psych here was told one thing so did 14 pages of paperwork to get me into toowoomba then to be told wrong area even though its the right area for my atods. I was out offside by the mental health worker I spoke to last week because he literally told me I had no right to be ringing and that they get kingaroys 'leftovers' and it was just my bad luck I live in the bush.

    Don't worry, i am perfectly polite to the staff and they are just as frustrated as me. The only time I lost it was when the nurse told me there were twenty 'actually sick' patients to look after when I asked to see the doctor. I'm not abusig the staff omg !

    It's pretty degrading being thrown around here there and everywhere when you already feel like a burden to my family and society as a whole. I'm actually a very friendly and polite person!

    I agree, there should be so much more funding.

    I'm just finding this thread useful to vent on. It's very frustrating.
