2 Weeks Ago my workplace found out about my mental health and since then I've tried to be extra cautious and mindful.Very difficult though.....

    Do you want to chat some more, the thread doesn't really give us much to go off. Have work said anything?

    " So I say thank you for the music, the songs I'm singing, thanks for all the joy they're bringing, who can live without it, I ask in all honestly what would life be? Without a song or a dance, what are we? So I say thank you for the music, for giving it to me "

    Hello; sorry that's my fault for not really saying much, I just don't really know where to begin to be honest.

    They had a meeting with me about it and I dont even know how they guessed and/or found out x

    Oh right, I guess maybe they are just concerned about you.

    What do you do as a job if you don't mind me asking?

    Hey AngelFace97,

    Sounds like you're having a tough time at work at the moment *hug*

    When you say you've tried to be cautious and mindful, what do you mean by that?

    I wonder if you have any form of support at work or even outside of work - what was the outcome of your meeting?

    We're here if you want to talk some more :yes:

    Hello, thank you so much for the support.

    What I mean when I say that is that I need to be cautious and mindful of how I act and my emotion control such as with the crying.Hope this makes sense, even though I feel there is more to it yet I'm just not completely sure how to explain.

    I don't really have any support although do turn to a friend who's also a colleague a fair bit...My psychiatric assessment is coming up soon as well, as you know so hopefully good comes from that.

    they gave me a number to call for support and said theyd be keeping an eye on me at the workplace now,I feel this is both a good and a bad thing

    Hi, I am actually off of work until 4th Jan now since it is the Christmas holidays(I work in a school). I have another meeting with the HR manager when I go back.

    I'm anxious about it but am also starting to realise more and more that it's standards and procedure, which is making it feel a little easier.

  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Hi Hannah,

    As you mentioned it's work following procedures, and hopefully you can discuss your options for support :yes:

    Try not to be too hard on yourself and we're here if you need to talk after tomorrow *hug*

    That's true. Im just really worrying and feeling anxious about it, on top of other things going on in my mind :crying::crying:

    I think it's normal to feel anxious about something like this - it's okay to feel the way you do. Try to hold onto the fact that you know it's just procedure. It also sounds as though people at work really do care and want to support you if they can - try and allow that because you deserve care and support. Do let us know how the meeting goes *hug*

    Psychiatric assessment appointment tomorrow :S x

    Good luck :heart:

    My advice would be to just be honest so they know how best to help you! I know it's scary but it will feel better once everythings out there (honestly).

    Hope all goes well- but remember we are here no matter what :heart:

    Sending *hug* s, I understand how difficult it must be (as I've being experiencing something similar) but I'm here to listen if you need to chat :heart:

    Keep us updated if it helps :heart:

    How does it make you feel having a diagnosis?

    Take care Hannah xx
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    It makes me feel quite disheartened and annoyed.Labels are hard but in a way I'm kind of pleased that it was given.

    It sounds as though we're experiencing similar things atm in terms of it all Hun.xx

    Hey Hannah,

    How did you feel about the Psychiatric assessment? - Were you informed much about what Borderline Personality Disorder means? When I was diagnosed with BPD, I had a million questions, I did research, etc. But like the more I looked into it, and was told about it in relation to me, I gained more understanding about myself and my behaviours, and you can always ask on here if you have any questions, we might not no the answer, but were here :heart:

    Best wishes,
    WhispersOfTheHeart
  • Former MemberFormer Member Posts: 1,876,324 The Mix Honorary Guru
    Heya,
    The Psychiatric Assessment was really hard and I had found it quite emotional and overwhelming. I wasn't informed much about it although I had previously had a strong inner feeling that I have BPD yet that was actually proven to be correct professionally but not officially currently.

    How do you find it for you?

    Hannah xx
