I have posted on the sertraline thread but wanted to post elsewhere.

I have been feeling increasingly unwell over the past few weeks and my self harm has increased. In the past week I have started to see signs from God that I should kill myself. I know that these are irrational thoughts but I am finding it hard not to believe them.

I saw my psychologist today and I was very upset because I feel so confused. I know what the signs are telling me but I am so scared. I don't know what the right thing to do is.

After I saw him I sat in my car for an hour outside the CMHT office, I couldn't move or do anything I just felt so stuck. The songs on the radio were giving me signs and I know that I have to hurt myself properly but I am so scared.

I went back inside and spoke to him again. He rang the crisis team and said that he had told them that while I am normally very high risk at the most they felt I was at a significant risk of harm that could only be managed in hospital.

They are coming out at 8pm to assess me for an admission.

I am so scared. I have been IP twice in the past six months. I feel like such a failure. I know I am seeing connections that aren't there, and my psychologist said that I am delusional but I can't shake it.

I am scared of an admission, scared of being at home and killing myself tonight. Scared. sad

I am not a bad person but all of these signs are showing me that I am.

Still feeling poo.

Had ANOTHER kebab last night blush who knew that take aways delivered to psychiatric units.

Thank you for your kind thoughts, I really appreciate them smile

TheSilveryPussycat Tue 26-Feb-13 18:30:10

Me! I knew that smile When I was in, in 2003, some evenings we had supper (sandwiches and stuff) at 9pm provided by the hospital, followed by some of us ordering take away smile

Though last summer - no supper, and no one ordered take away sad I imagine we could have done though.

bassetfeet Tue 26-Feb-13 18:51:35

Ach so sorry you are feeling so bad Fluffy. So relieved that you are still with us and posting with your feelings though . And the humour is there x

Take aways must thrive on all of us up at night Fluffy . Hospital patients and staff /police / ambulance ....all who need some tasty food delivered whoever we are and where we are . Food is nice when you are bored and needing comfort .
So pleased that you are eating . Hold on . hold on .x

I was into dominos pizza when I was inpatient, it's crazy how little money you need if you club together.

Hi Fluffy

If you get the chance, let us know you are ok. Hope you are ok ( and not hidden under a pile of takeaway menus).

Fluffydressinggown Thu 28-Feb-13 13:02:41


This is just a quickie. I am being transferred to PICU (psychiatric intensive care unit) at 2pm today. Feeling very very upset. I won't be allowed on my laptop there so I have not disappeared just gone somewhere else.

Why me? sad

TheSilveryPussycat Thu 28-Feb-13 13:06:18

Hi Fluffy

It will be alright, honestly it will. We will all be here rooting for you. loads of hugs and all warm wishes to you. See you again shortly, I hope. Take care.

SnowyMouse Thu 28-Feb-13 13:15:07

Lots of luck fluffy, I'll keep you in my prayers and thoughts (if ok). I know someone who found PICU very helpful, I hope the increased resources help you.

Big hugs, I hope you see this.

Sunnywithshowers Thu 28-Feb-13 13:32:51
