Waiting for the crisis team - support needed.

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.

Oh fluffy sad you're having such a hard time. Hope the Crisis team arrive soon and help you.

Remember, there is nothing out there which will punish you, it's just your neurons misfiring.

SnowyMouse Mon 14-Jan-13 20:43:22

Are you sure he's cross with you and not the situation?

My GP visited me in the morning, rang Crisis Team who specified 'that afternoon' - not a time, just a time period. And they did turn up late that afternoon, and twas that evening I went in. It can be v tricky for CT to give exact times, the stuff to deal with is constantly changing, however I am sure you are one of their top priorities.

Fluffydressinggown Mon 14-Jan-13 21:03:40

They rang and should be here soon.

I am known to the crisis team (they are on my CPA) but it is still scary sad I have had home treatment in March and July, prior to my previous admissions.

My husband is upset with everything, I am such a failure.

I have cut my leg, when they rang and said it wouldn't be 8 I knew it was a sign. I have not told my husband just patched it up and come back to watch TV. I might need stitches but I can't face anything tonight and they can;t stitch that bit of my leg because there are too many scars.

I am so confused.

ThatVikRinA22 Mon 14-Jan-13 23:05:43

fluffy the signs are just telling you that you are ill and in need of more specialised help - it will be ok. but please do tell them when you get to hospital that you are seeing these signs and what they mean to you. and get your leg looked at sweetheart.

much love.

Thanks ice smile

Fluffy I hope today things are looking brighter.

Fluffydressinggown Tue 15-Jan-13 14:39:17

Hi, I an on my phone so rubbush typing!

Got some sleep. Keep seeing signs even in my dreams, feel so confused about what God wants me to do. Tried to kill myself last night but they found me. Today has been quieter, read my book and slept a bit. Nobody has talked to me but the nurse said she would later. Just so muddled.

Going to have a sandeich and read my magazine now, don't understand how ocd can be like this.

ThatVikRinA22 Tue 15-Jan-13 16:29:59

you are in the best possible place just now fluffy - hope you start to feel better soon.

HeartsTrumpDiamonds Tue 15-Jan-13 16:34:13

Fluffy, I know it's hard, but ignore the signs if you can. What God really wants is for you to get better and stay with your family. The other stuff you are hearing inside your head is your illness.

When you are feeling better and your head is clearer, I am sure the doctors will be able to explain where the signs came from, whether it is your OCD, your BP (like me), and so on.

How was the sandwich?


Fluffydressinggown Tue 15-Jan-13 17:09:13

Im not hearing voices. Just sering things that are a sign for me, like songs on the radio our certain numbers or colours. Hard to explain.
I'm interpreting things that are there as having a special meaning for me from God.

Sandwich was ok!

Branleuse Tue 15-Jan-13 17:13:37

thinking of you FDG. I hope youre ok. Came on to check how you were x

Fluffydressinggown Tue 15-Jan-13 18:23:01

Thank you. Just had a big chat with the nurse so although it hadn't changed things I am glad I shared it.
