  • If you really feel suicidal, I would just go to the ER and the minute you say the word they have to admit you but it would be a locked unit. I have been close to wanting to be in lockdown just to get the treatment I need, I also waited too long to be seen by a psychiatrist ( 3 weeks) and I really should have started treatment earlier because now I am suffering. You should not have to wait until Monday. You can get some medication also from your PCP or any general doctor for the panic and depression as well. I got Zoloft 20 years ago from an ER physician. It's not the best way but you can always follow up with psych later.

  • I'm on mirtazipine 45mg at night I wouldn't act on my intrusive thoughts it's just I don't understand why mental health comes after someone with a poxy cough/cold x

  • I agree. Mental health is just as important as physical illness. I don't understand why you can't bee seen before Monday I have been experiencing similar issues. I have been trying to find a neuropsych doctor and it's almost impossible. I have Lyme disease which complicates things more. I must have made a 100 phone calls today and one came out as a possibility and I need a referral even before I can make an appointment which who knows when that would be!

  • its disgusting !!

    im demanding a referral Monday otherwise I am not leaving the surgery x

  • I would do the same! Good luck!
