My MH has taken a disastrous turn for the worse today. Rang both the MH team I'm under and my GP and neither phoned me back (I had a missed call but phoned the surgery straight away but haven't heard back).
I've got 2 small children and no partner so I can't go to A&E and I just don't know what to do now.
Thats bad. Here OOH suggested home visit without us asking, and another time we were waiting for a call back and the GP turned up. Twice this has happened for mental health calls. Normal medical calls we have to go to the clinic.
I work for a GP practice (just admin) and so they're fairly enlightened when it comes to MH, but they must be getting fed up of the time off I'm having. I wish I had a broken leg or something tangible.
We are here if you want to talk and a hand to hold. Do the GP practice you work for know about your illness. Can they recommend or help you access services? Can they help you get in touch with a councillor for CBT or DBT.
I went to the dr this morning and have been signed off for 2 weeks and had my medication increased. Been asleep most of the day but have to go and fetch my eldest from school shortly. I felt not too bad when I woke up but now the anxiety is kicking in again...I can't even pinpoint what I feel anxious about.
