Why is it taking so fucking long.

    In August I went to the Doctors and told her that I was suicidal. IN AUGUST. I have still gotten no where. She referred me to a primary care team who took 2 months to get back to me, and then referred me on to ANOTHER primary care team for depression, who I didn't see for another 2 months. The guy said he'd get back to me on what is going to happen. This was just before Christmas. He hasn't.

    How can it possibly take so long to deal with it when someone says they're FUCKING SUICIDAL?! Nearly half a year! How many suicide attempts could I have had in this fucking time? How much damage could I have done to myself? No one in the NHS gives a fucking shit and if they would they would IMPROVE THEIR FUCKING SERVICES so a suicidal person doesn't have to wait half a year to get help!!! Went to the Emergency department, that was a pile of shit too. Told to wait 4 hours and I just went the fuck home instead, took some sleeping pills and knocked myself out. Much easier.

    In the time they've taken, I've started a new year of college, about to fail my 4-months-later exams, my depression has actually gone away once and returned, I've gone on antidepressants for two months, come off them, and then went back on them, I've broke up with my boyfriend 3 times, and slept with a friend. I've had Christmas, seen in a New Year. I've gotten pregnant, I've subsequently miscarried. My life is insane. It is unstable. It is impossible to deal with but I am having to because they don't want to get off their fucking arses and see me sooner!!!

    The system is broken,or so very slow.

    You need to stamp your feet on this one and demand to see someone in charge.

    I got treated very much the same. I went to my doctor, got told not to kill myself because of the damage it'd do to my family, sent away and told to go back in six weeks time. Went back, the suicide thing wasn't even brought up and has only been mentioned once since (went to see him in June). Since then I've been put on a waiting list to see a CBT specialist but that was back in October and I'm still waiting. My doc nor anybody else from the NHS have ever bothered to call to check I'm okay or hurried their services up, they just sit back and don't care. My doc didn't even give me meds or refer me to anybody until a few months into my visits and I was the one who had to actually ask for them. They're supposed to care for me, not have me do all the caring and looking out for myself.
