For starters, I have not had the petrol money to get to toowoomba yet, secondly the gp told me I would not get in even if I called an ambulance.
I was going to call the pa today.
Play nice, I have no idea why you think I'm not trying to get help? They have a damn fantastic mother, my life is them. I want to be better so everyday isn't a struggle. All our lives are different. I have been seeing a counsellor weekly, I'm on the waiting list for suboxone or methadone, my meds are out of my hands now, I've been going to Na weekly, a kind member here sent me a workbook which I have started, I get daily steps and work to do via email for bulimia which I have just started, I have my first psych appt in September and I've just put on extra staff to take the load off.
I will turn down inpatient because of work yes, because I cannot leave. This thread is about getting the help I need that also fits into my extremely busy but blessed life.

No advice here, Ffrench, just big hugs
I live in a small town too, so I can absolutely appreciate how that changes your situation and your options too.
I think you're incredibly brave and I hope you get the treatment you need, soon.

The only catt team that came up was Townsville. I'm not really into having slmeone come to me as I want my children as separate from this as possible.
Thanks Scarlett x

Thats the thing tho. Id be concerned that u cannot do that.
60 hours a week leaves u very little time to do anything, let alone get help to get well.
Something has gotta give.
Im not having a go, im just trying to get my head around how u can run a business awsy from home for 60 hrs a week, be a mother and get help in a mental health facility.
Its impossible if u are willing to turn down help because of work. I just dont see how u would manage. You are certainly a strong woman
All the best ffrenchie xx

But people here are trying to help you and give you alternative choices and so far I have seen you turn every single one of them down.
I understand and respect the fact that I don't know you, or understand or know about your life, but everyone here has been offering up positive messages of support and care options. I have not seen one negative post.
I don't believe that you are going to find the treatment/care that you want. I dobt think it exists within your limits and restrictions.
Is this a failure on Australia's mental health care and public health system? Quite possibly yes.
But I do believe that you might find the treatment/care that you want if you take on board these suggestions and become open to the reality of what options are actually available and accessible to you and adjust your limits and restrictions that you have imposed upon yourself.

You're very high risk to self-harm, or kill yourself.
I'm just very concerned that you'd turn down any option at this stage, including inpatient.
You seem to think I'm attacking you, I'm sorry if I have not expressed byself more clearly. I think you are amazing and brave and honest and trying your guts out to get better for yourself and your family.
I'm just scared for you. I'm scared for anyone who experiences suicidal feelings, myself included.
There is sometimes not enough help in the world for people like us, not everyone makes it. Thats why I am concerned.

Huh? The only suggestion I've turned down is quitting my job!
Play nice. . You stated matter of fact that I am making excuses. I have no reason to make excuses. Just explaining my life.

I'm going to leave this thread alone now. I am unbearably frustrated that I'm not bring understood by some. It's upsetting me too much and I don't want to run away from this forum.
I was already bullied off a recovery forum when I relapsed. I over share and people misubderstand
That's it. I won't close it because that's disrespectful to you guys. Feel free to keep chatting.

Earlier in the thread you said it was because of being away from the kids, now you say its because of your job. I believe they are valid reasons but also excuses.
But hey, it IS your life.

How about I leave this thread instead? Its your thread. I was about to bow out anyway.
Best of luck with everything x
