Title says it all, waiting to see if I will be sectioned.

Tried to kill myself this morning and DH had to 'save' me.

Cut twice this week needing stitches.

Everything is a huge mess.

Hate self.

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 15:02:08


I'm here cream. Not much to say that'll help but I'm here.

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 15:04:31

Thank you.

I am hoping they don't section me.

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 15:06:53

Do you have other support? Or has this come out of the blue, so to speak?

I'm not trying to be nosey so please tell me if I am.

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 15:10:35

I have on-going MH problems, been sectioned before.

I have a CPN.

Very tired.

My very supportive husband is here with me.

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 15:13:16

I'm glad he's there with you.
It's very tiring having MH problems. Sometimes it seems like just getting through an hour is like climbing a mountain isn't it?
I have anxiety and depression. They are a crap combination.
You've climbed this far though. Can you take it an hour at a time?

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 15:20:05

trying to. Just waiting for psychiatrist to come out to assess me.

Hate this.

Thank you for listening, sorry to hear you have MH issues yourself, they are horrendous aren't they?

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 15:26:39

Did they say how long they'd be?
Do you feel like a warm drink or anything? Waiting is not nice.

They are horrendous yes. But MN has been so helpful since I was diagnosed. Lots of advice and just being able to talk.

I'm curled up with a horrid cold and am here as long as you'd like.

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 15:31:07

No no idea how long sad

Want to die.

Drinking cola and watching Ghostbusters(!)

Smoking too much as well.

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 15:34:51

Gosh haven't seen ghostbusters in years! Is it real coke or squeaky teeth cola?

Can you just wait, just a little longer. Talk to the psychiatrist. It seems like it now but I bet in the past it has too. And in between there have been times you'd have missed.

Do you enjoy films or is this a distraction?

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 15:37:51

Its just on the Sky.

I don't mind it though, love a cheesy film. Need distracting.

Hate this wait!!

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 15:44:27

time seems to slow down when you are waiting.

I love a good cheesy film. I'm watching phineas and Ferb cartoons because my DS has them on.

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 15:52:16

I am sory you have a cold, I am just getting over one, it sucks doesn't it.

I don't have children.

Taking my shellacnoff so typing with foil fingers!

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 15:54:10

It does. I work in a school and thought I'd dodged the half term cold. Seems it was just waiting!!

I have two DS.

Bets that's tricky! What colour did you have? I've never had mine done. Tempted to though.

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 16:02:27

i had pale pink wih glitter on my ring fingers.

I used to be a teacher! What do you do?

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 16:09:32

That sounds very pretty. I may just dabble one day.

Did you? What age did you teach??
I'm a TA. I do behaviour support, work with parents and external mentors and teach catch up reading support. I'm also covering for a poorly TA in nursery at the moment in the mornings. I love my job. I did my English degree to go on to a PGCE but had my eldest son so stayed as a TA.

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 16:11:15

I was a primary school teacher. I taug

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 16:12:42

Sorry pressed send too early!

I taught Y1.

DH on phone to crisis team now to try to find out whats happening.

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 16:15:15

It's those foil fingers smile

Y1 is a tricky year, I think.

I hope they can give you a time frame.

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 16:21:21

No idea aapparently and bed state is dire idea what will happen.

MrsMinton Sat 21-Feb-15 16:25:17

That's not awfully helpful is it.

Sijeunessesavait Sat 21-Feb-15 16:29:35

Dear Creamhearts
I've posted occasionally on your threads before as well as lurking, and am so sorry to see you struggling again. You have given me so much hope for my 19 yo DD who has had some similar MH problems over the past couple of years. Reading your posts has given me some insight into what she's been going through, and your better times have been truly uplifting for me, and I'm sure for many others who have followed your story.

Please stay safe - you have so much to look forward to

creamhearts Sat 21-Feb-15 16:29:41

No sad Although it puts off the inevitable.

Feel so sick inside.

Loveisashadow Sat 21-Feb-15 16:33:28

Hello Cream. I'm here.

Lemondrizzletwunt Sat 21-Feb-15 16:33:54

Hi cream, hi mrs!

Did want to read and run, I am here for a hand-hold, too. I imagine it must be very nerve-wracking waiting for someone else to make a big decision about your life.

Cream, this is a bit clumsy of me, but do you want to talk about mental health and wanting to die, or do you want to talk about other things...other aspects of your life? I only ask so that I'm not dwelling on something you don't want to, but equally I'm not skirting round something important!

I also have MH issues, depression and infrequent bouts of anxiety. I don't pretend to know what you're going through, but I do know how alienating and exhausting mental health issues can be.
