    Hi all
    I'm new to this site. I have reluctantly used MH services for a little while now. I actually used to be part of it for work but that all fell around my ears when I started getting into more "difficulties". So now no job although there is one on the horizon of a few hours working in a shop which actually sounds like bliss to me.
    I used to go on another website for a long time but I don't feel I can go back due to some of the replies I got there. I tried to explain myself and the situation honestly in that I had went out drinking with friends one night and so skipped meds that night as I didn't want to take sedation when drinking(hadn't had alcohol for months before that) and I got some really negative replies that I was prioritising alchohol over medication. I tried to say how I wasn't and that I just wanted to join in for one night and feel normal but the damage was done I no longer felt able to go there as I felt they just weren't realistic about life situations that we all have. I see a psychologist, who understood that situation entirely, who I see weekly and I have a psychiatrist who I see as little as possible as I just really don't like her. Due to see her this week so not looking forward to that.
    I found this site just by looking for the S word simply as I am having alot of thoughts, images and some hallucinations of a not nice nature at the moment and to be honest coming online and talking/reading helps, so here I am. I am female and in England so Hello everyone
