Help, not coping
Posted 28 December 2011 - 06:42 PM
But it leaves me alone without him. He does so much for me, as he is also my carer.
When I have been alone in the past I have tended to get very depressed and have attempted suicide. I don't want to go down this road again. My husband is due to go away in mid January and my CPN has already reserved meeting times so that I see someone every day whilst he is away. This time I will have to go to next Wednesday to see someone, when my hubby comes home.
I don't know what to do. I tried to phone the CMHT today, and tried to explain the situation, but the duty worker didn't seem to understand my predicament.
I'm already going downhill. I can't prepare myself a meal so I had grated cheese on pasta and cornflakes for tea - not together!

Mid, you are your own expert, your own best friend in the sence that you know what helps, what distracts you and what makes things worse.
So what kind of things usually bring you some enjoyment?

You'll be amazed how time simply passes, even if your hiding under a duvet

If I could concentrate I would watch TV, but I can't so I shan't!
If I ... Oh this is crazy, I just want to cry, crying out won't help though
I may just hide under the duvet!

Do you have the crisis teams number?
Have you spoken to hubby today?
Posted 28 December 2011 - 06:58 PM
Yes, I have the crisis team's number. I use them quite a lot from time to time.
And yes, my hubby has phoned me twice since leaving this lunchtime. Everytime he changed trains he gave me a ring

Got any favorite DVD's?

Sounds like an early night is a good idea then as tomorrows getting busy lol
I have been painting today, and by the state of my shirt I think that very little actually made it onto the walls

but it just seems to early. Maybe I'll check my emails before I close my computer down.
Congratulations on the painting. It's always nice when somewhere is newly decorated.

I can see myself heading for a crisis, even thinking about what to have for tea is so stressful! My husband suggested fish fingers and pasta. I need to do this soon as I am hungry, but the cornflakes seem a much better option - no preparation.
Why do I have to put up with life? It is so stressful.

CMHT say to me not to eat cornflakes all the time They are checking up by phone everyday to check what I have eaten
I set the fire alarm off whilst cooking the fish fingers and pasta, but I didn't burn either of them, I promise!
Also had a couple of chocolate orange segments that I got for Christmas, with a cup of coffee after the meal.
