    Hi The Richmond Fellowship has nothing in my area.  I've contacted MIND before but they just referred me back to my MH Team.  The only one I haven't was Rethink.  Ill check their webpage out.  Me

    Hi

    Just so tired.  I have turned on all the lights.  I could not cope with who was around me.  I know this makes me sound mad but demons and the dead do come around me.  I had a tough day.  I guess that's why.  Scope have been fantastic.  I just felt like the demons would hear me if I called the Samaritans.  I am sitting up, exhausted and going to watch TV.  I wrote Christmas cards and stuff like that to try and take my mind away from them.  I have a support worker calling me on Monday.  I am suspicious of her as I have not met her and the MH Team have been hard to get treatment from.  I am on such high dosages of tablets its probably causing the hallucinations.  Unless the dead really are visiting me.  I thought I was going to die.  I totally believed it.  I just never seem to sleep no matter how drugged up on their pills I am.  I am going to let my family down, I can sense it.  I don't think I can make it to Christmas.  It all seems so pointless.  Thanks for your response. :)  Holly

    Hi Chiarieds,
    Just wanted to let you know I checked all the links you sent. Thank you.
    I have a meeting with my social worker and a advocate from Voiceability is coming to offer me support. Still not sure what to do with my housing situation. I’m still worried if I will be able to manage living on my own, even with the adaptions. It’s a bit of scary situation and maybe I will be fine but I just don’t want to make a wrong decision. You’ve been marvellous.
    You said you have Spina Bifita? Did you know that you would deteriorate with your condition? How do you cope?

      Hi @Tass. Thank you for your message. How are you today? Do you want to message someone privately? If so, then you will need 25 points to do this, but if you keep posting on the site you can get up to 25 points in no time at all. I am sorry to hear you haven't any friends, but you will meet a lot of friends on here as everyone is lovely and so supportive of each other. Have you had a chance to look around the site and read some of the discussions going on. Joining in discussions is a great way to chat to people and to get to know them. The Coffee Lounge is a great place to start as it features a lot of fun activities. Do you get out much in your area or do you have any hobbies you like to do? Often that is a good way to join some clubs/groups. I hope that helps and if there is anything else you need to know then I am happy to help. Have a nice night! @Ails. :-)

    Sorry to read you're not that great at the moment. My next door neighbour but one has RA, & we sometimes compare notes! You sound like a fighter, which is good, & keeps you going. There are lots of people here not good with computers; but it's still good to chat a little. I'm rubbish with phones too. Take care. Pleased to hear from you any time.
