    I was in touch with this support service, they promised me so many grandoise things, including some counselling. Now I've been trying to get in touch with my support worker for almost FOUR WEEKS now. He did exactly the same as everyone else, came, promised, vanished. I've phoned, emailed, tried to get in touch with him every way I can think of. Nothing.

    The first week he was off sick, then he was back, spoke to me for about 2 minutes, he could not get off the phone fast enough. Then last week on the day he should have been meeting me someone else called and said he was off sick, funny that because I spoke to him the week before.

    So many people have done exactly the same thing to me I'm beginning to wander if they pick up on just how much of a lost cause I am, and feel I'm not worth the time & money. Most people just cut me off untill I give up calling them, or they make excuses untill I give up trying.

    So, as I told my mum, I tried to get help, obviously there is none in this money before people society we all live in. I'm obviously not a good investment.

    Heya,

    You are not a lost cause and it is good that you can talk to your mum about it. I am not sure that they realise how bad you are. One way of getting places is to go back and see your GP. They can get things moving and if it doesn't work send you some where else.

    Take care

    Let me know how things go.

    I tried that, they just offered me Prozac and said if I did not take it they would just class me as refusing help and send me away. They do it a bit like of you discharge yourself from hospital, it's your choice but it just means they are not obliged to help you anymore. Very cunning money saving trick.

    Is the prozac working???

    I sometimes hate the UK's mental health system.

    Urmmmm bug your GP or see someone else. Keep phoning the supposed therapist until the receptionist and thereapist finaly gets pissed off and decides to help you and see you. The fact of this showws you wqant help and they can't turn you down by this. If you speak to that guy and he puts the phone down after 2 mins ring him back. You deserve all the help you can get.

    Do not let anyone tell you or make you think otherwise.

    p.s. would you be willing to travel outside your town etc to get help sometimes that helps. Or you could always go and get yourself admitted by pretending to be a psychopath in an IP hospital. Ok maybe that is taking it too far....you mite end up being arrested.

    No I refused to take it, I had a very bad reaction to it as a kid, so bad I'm not even going to mention here exactly what I did, but it involved some very nasty things.

    I'm not becoming another statistic thank you.

    Have you told them that?

    What do you mean by another statistic?

    Sorry I am not quite sure I am understanding you.

    I did, but it was prescribed by me old school doctor, so it's not on my medical records, most of which are lost anyway.

    I meant I'm not going to be one of the thousands of people popping anti depressants with no idea what the real problem is, half the damn country is on Prozac.

    Fair enough. I get your point. Is it possible to talk to someone about getting the meds changed?

    Do you have a doctor you see? If so go see him and let him know what is going on with yourself. Maybe if he calls this guy who is avoiding you that he might have a better chance. I would also find out who this guys boss is and call her/him and complain about him!!
    In the mean time how are you holding up? If you start getting so low that you have crazzy thoughts then go to the emergency room. Most hospitals have a mental health case worker there to talk to people when they come in withh problems. I'll be around if you need to talk. Good Luck.:chopper:

    Not here, they just send you away, accuse you of wasting time and tell you to see your GP. Just to clarify, I will refuse all meds. I am like this because of a contraceptive pill, so I'm very against any medication with psychological side effects. I also get addicted to things very quickly, I am alreaddy hooked on Codiene, heaven knows what I'd be like on anything else.
