    Sorry Brownie, I meant to reply to your post last night but I fell asleep. They've just doubled my meds and I'm a bit zombie ish whilst I get used to them.
    Anyhow, you need to phone your GP straight away and ask for an appointment. Tell them you need an emergency appointment. If they ask why, say you're suicidal.
    If you do get in to see your GP, get some meds and also ask for a low dose of something like diazepine (can't spell that sorry) or Phenergen. They're highly unlikely to give you the diazepine but it's worth a try. Might not give you Phenergen either but again its worth a try.
    Tell your doctor that you've seriously dipped and isolated yourself and as a result you missed appointments at the psych. You've now tried to get new appointments but they haven't happened and you need meds.
    If you can't get in to see your GP, then you're going to have to go to A&E. Again, tell them all of the above. Don't give up until you get some help. You may have to stay there for hours but they will have to treat you eventually.
    If (by some miracle) they say you should go into the psych ward for a few days, then go. You need the break. Having 4 girls can't be easy (I found 3 difficult and they were great kids)
    Is there someone can help look after the girls whilst you get through this crisis?

    The chances of them keeping you in are minimal. Have you seen the state of the NHS? They're probably give you a couple of very mild sedatives to work whilst the meds kick in. If they do want to keep you in though, then you should definitely go for it. You really need the space to get well. You'll have all your meals provided, won't have to do any housekeeping and someone will be there to get you through the worse bits.
    I'm glad you've got your meds back but it's going to take a few days for them to kick in. Can you hang on through that? If you're not sure, then go and actually see your doctor and ask for something to help you through the next few days.
    Sending hugs.

    If you suspect your friend is worried about you then they may be the best person to let know how you feel.

    You are not being a burden, you are ILL and thus you need to look after YOU. Please please please call someone or talk to your doctor about it.

    Hugs

    Okay, if it's that bad then you really need to get to A&E. I know that it's hard but you have to remember that this is an illness and it's a illness that kills.
    There is no shame or embarassment in suffering from an illness and you have every right to expect help to get you through it.
    If you were having an severe asthma attack, you wouldn't think twice about going for medical help. This is no different.
    I know that you don't anyone to worry about you but people are worried. I'm worried. You are worthy of our concern.
    Please go and get the help that you need. Your girls are depending on you, don't let them down.

    OK, sometimes things don't work straight away for whatever reason - why didn't you find it helpful?

    if you are feeling really desperate go to the ER. they know how to look after you. it's only for emergencies but i've never regretted going.

    I know how you feel, I have attempted suicide several times, and honestly can tell you each time I have been taken into a psychiatric unit, the last time for 2 weeks.
    I hated being in there and Im scared Im heading that way again, but tbh if going in saves my life then it's worth it.
    I think you should ring NHS direct 08454647 and tell them how you feel!! xxxx

    How are you doing today? I don't think the advocacy thing was the right place for you to go. You need to go and see either your GP or the A&E.
