you are incredibly strong reaching out like you have and please dont leave the thread. I started threads like this in the past (your welcome to go search if you want) when I was struggling and reaching out for advice and was so vulnerable to any and everything that was said to me and felt like no one was really listening to me. i think you might be feeling much the same at the moment. But try and remember that how sensitive you feel is because you are suffering from depression, most people can be given criticism and advice and just take whatever they want out of it and the rest with a grain of salt. When I was unwell I felt deeply wounded when anything like that was said to me and was easily scared off from conversations where I perceived challenges. Depression just distorts your thinking in ways that make you see challenges where their arnt any. Read through the workbook I sent you, especially the parts about challenging and recognising your though processes. Its really good stuff..
Luv to ya.. Soldier on... This will all be a distant memory soon.
I used to write "this too shall pass" on my arm in texta when I was unwell and look at it whenever I was struggling...

I'm sorry you are feeling like this. I also suffer from depression and have, in the past, suffered from addiction so I can somewhat relate. My mum had an episode of feeling suicidal and depressed so we took her to the ER where she was assessed by the Psych nurse. She was given valium and sent home because she felt better after chatting to the nurse. I think going to the ER would be a good idea. I hope things improve for you really soon

When I started this thread, I didn't realise how hard it was going to be to go public. I was completely willing (but scared obviously) to go because I thought it would help.
The nearest ed is one hour away.
The nearest mental health ward is 2.5 hours away.
Since posting this thread I have not had he petrol money to go.
My gp told me I most likely wouldn't be accepted unless I was in an acute episode and had to call an ambulance
That is still the plan for hubby to call if I have a bad episode again. I've been a bit better since. The gp doubled my ads as well.
I cannot take 'time off' from my own business for reasons I have stated. If I don't work I am not even going to be able to do the three trips to psychs etc a week let alone afford ongoing private health. I don't care if anyone won't 'accept' that because they are not in the position we are in but it's the reality of living in the middle of nowhere in a 400 person town. I hate it and before I got this business I was going crazier being away from the city and gyms.
If i am still unwell in April I will for sure go inpatient, I have between may and September off every year and if a public hospital option comes up before I go back go work I will go. I was asking people in depth today for real life advice.
Last time in did inpatient in may it was a detox centre, I don't need that I need somewhere they can provide therapy. It was easy to get in there which is why I didn't realise this would be so hard.

Thanks cicer that's a shame about the pa, my friend who has been there just told me it was good. There's no services where I live yet I can't access the big ones.
I actually want help.
My anxiety is through the roof, I am in bloody tears of frustration driving home from this course.

Being given Valium is absolutely not an option for me. I spent half an hour on the phone to my counsellor just before and she also said I probably would not be admitted and to be aware of that but I should ring for an assessment over the phone. Because I have good support in place via my husband and friends I am probably low risk she said.

Have you ever been referred to a pain management clinic?

No I haven't. There is one 2.5 hours away but my op is coming up in a few weeks so I won't worry about it. If it was going to be longer term I'd go for sure. Thanks for the other info too x

Ffrenchie is obviously going through an incredibly difficult time right now - and while some posts may be well intentioned ... they are not actually helping.
Arguing with her, and making her re-explain her circumstances several times is not constructive for her.
Please think carefully about how she may receive/view your advice before you offer it.
and best wishes Ffrenchie

Im sorry if u felt I was questioning u ffrenchie...I was just trying to get a clearer picture of your circumstances and was worried working so much would be detrimental at this time. Its hard to know exactly how things are for you.
I admire ur strength and drive. Im sure u will succeed in getting well whilst maintaining ur new position at the pool. I understand now how important that job is to your mental health - its actually part of your recovery.
Again im sorry if I upset u in anyway, its the last thing id want to do
How are u feeling today? Xo
