    What if it's just a complete mental breakdown waiting to happen

    I'm going to try ask my mental health team if going into hospital can at least be considered

    If you think hospital would help you @IainJammyboy, I think it's pretty brave to ask about it. Well done for knowing what you need and being willing to talk about it.
    Crisis team told me because I've waited this episode out before I can do it again - I can't do it again
    Also this seems like questionable logic! Is that literally what they said?
    The truth resists simplicity.

    @JustV No chance in hell am I ever going to get the support I need - the mental health team also told me that my mood stabilizer is also an antidepressant?????????? Just makes me feel like I'm overreacting - or even I'm just so jealous of people in hospital or whatnot, they can at least get the support I can't access or anything. They said because I had a history of overdosing a couple times they were scared I'll do it again but still won't offer any help???? I can't even shower properly anymore, haven't showered in a few days since this started a week ago

    Talked to my crisis team today, took into consideration everything I said and these weird psychotic symptoms - we talked about hospital, but they said it's something that has been considered and can be in the future, but because of the environment it's like it's not the best fit we think right now especially as we don't understand what it is that's wrong

    @IainJammyboy you’re still human though and all your struggles should be valid. I’m so sorry society makes guys feel like that, it’s so crap :/

    Please keep going. You’ve been through so much, so all that can happen is for it to get better. I guess by reaching out on here you’re showing people that men need and deserve support, so you’re contributing to hopefully a change there.

    Why are hallucinations taken as such a big deal even if they're not immediately distressing?

    I'm terrified

    The more I talk about these hallucinations and people watching me the more it goes through my mind the more I convince myself it's real and I can't do anything
