So I’m a week past my near fatal overdose and if I’m honest I’m struggling on without any support. The crisis team came to see me last Friday and said they couldn’t help me so discharged me back to my community mental health team. But they’ve been useless, they rang me on Tuesday for a 5 minute conversation and that’s it. No one has been out to see me and I’m just existing. I wake up every day with no energy, no motivation, no desire to do anything. I have mostly spent the week in bed.
Is it wrong to expect more from the community mental health team? I nearly died and yet no one wants to help me. Can’t they see I’m at rock bottom right now?
I miss my babies so much it hurts, I haven’t seen them for 7 weeks and it’s destroying me. I have no reason to get up and live. I am literally opening my eyes for 12 hours waiting to take my night meds so I can go back to sleep.
I feel really let down by the nhs, they locked me up in a hospital for 9 months then just threw me out with no support at all. xx
