Not to mention the fact that without an additional income I can NOT afford to get to two psych appts a week and the Na meeting I have been going to. Let alone go to the city for better help which I hope to do once I have an income. Each trip
In petrol and anything to the city is around $150. I couldn't go last week because I had no money.

I may be wrong but I think pp were trying to say that putting a tight time limit on how long you have to get well may not be practical. It may take longer for you to get well and therefore this job , no matter how important might be risking your life if ur not better in time and go ahead with working 60 hrs a week rather than concentrating on getting properly well iykwim.
Of course none of us really know ur situation so we can only go by what we know on here xxx

I'm not expecting myself to be back to normal but I have lived and worked with all of this for along time.
Not working is not an option.
I have just hired three staff members to take the load off. It's not a job share situation as I am the boss. Anyone who works for me I have to pay and I'm willing to do that obviously. I'm contracted by the council to run this pool. The whole town goes without learning to swim if there is no pool. It's not as simple as just getting someone to take over for awhile. You have to be specially (and expensively) trained to work at a pool and in a 400 person town there is noone else qualified. I did have someone lined up to work full time but he just pulled out on me.
My counsellor, psych and Na meetings are an hour away. I hope to utilise then three times a week as ongoing support and I literally can not afford the petrol. I'm sorry if nobody understand that, it's the reality of our situation at the moment. I will have alot more options when I have my income back. Like I said I had to cancel last week because I literally could not afford the trip over. Not to mention upcoming trips to the city for dd and my operations.
My meds are under the control of my dh now so I'm not in dangerous addiction anymore.

I'm going to go against the grain here, but I have to agree that giving up the job is not going to help. Please excuse me if I'm totally wrong, but I think you seem emotionally in a better place when you're working - maybe because its a healthy distraction? And stressing about money would be totally counter productive. I completely support you wanting to keep your position at the pool, for so many reasons.

Thanks hun x. I cannot reiterate anymore just how important and what a blessing this job is.

Yeah I am checking out Na meetings online and trying to choose a sponsor, the group I go to only has about 6 people.

I hear your pain and I hear your desperation.
My only hope for you is that you get the help you need and deserve.
Be it inpatient, outpatient, over the phone or over the internet, I just hope you get your children's mother the help she needs and deserves.

Im not saying you have to quit your job entirely.
But if you got private health insurance now, did your two month waiting period and were able to get inpatient treatment for a week/fortnight at one of the private specialised facilities in 2-3 months time are you going to turn it down because of work?
I'm still not entirely sure why you have presented to Emergency at the base hospital yet either. That is the fastest way to get admission.
im pretty sure even if you went to the PA they would just transfer you back to Toowoomba because they'd need those beds for people living in their catchment.

Do you have a CATT team in your area? Also called acute crisis team in some areas. This is another referal service but they come to you to offer assisitance. If you can't find info PM me the region you live in and I will try to locate a contact number. You can try yourself by googling MH CAT and the region you live in and it should bring up the details.
