rant 1: people who think being not heterosexual is a choice i hate it so much when people say that being lgbtiq etc is a choice- why would anyone choose this? we are more at risk of mental illness, we are constantly discriminated against, bullied and hated. there are people- whole organisations and religions- who think that we should die, or even that we don't exist... why would anyone choose that? it pisses me off so much... especially when it comes from my own family, the people i trust the most... rant 2: the 'professionals' from the camht team ok, if someone gets to the point where they have secretly attempted suicide and ended up in hospital, surely they would need urgent mental health assistance? it's not like people with mental health issues only need help from 9-5 on weekdays. so why should i present to the emergency ward at 5pm on a friday night, be admitted, spend a night getting almost no sleep across the room from a kid who turned out to have PNEUMONIA, then be told the next day to go home for the weekend and come back at 8am on monday, left alone with my mum for two days to battle with my own head? and then, when monday finally rolled around, what happened? i was seen by two mental health workers who said that i should continue with my therapy as i was. that was it. i was told to keep doing what i was doing. clearly what was happening wasn't enough, since i had just tried to end my own life... the team did not seem to care about me, they didn't help me at all- they just said to keep doing what was obviously not working. when will people learn that suicide is a last resort when suffering becomes so great that there seems to be no other option? telling me that what i'm doing already is enough is a complete lie.
