DepressionDiaries: The Crisis team have been and gone

The two assessors from the crisis team who came over to assess me just left a little while ago. Our session went much better than I had expected. I had my mum with me so she could speak for me when I couldn’t which was pretty much the whole time.

When they first arrived I was very anxious, I even had a mild panic attack just before they came to my house (I say it was mild because I was hyperventilating, feeling sick and my head went funny but compared to other panic attacks I’ve had this one was mild)

They were here for just over an hour but they were very patient and listened to everything my mum and I had to say and they actually took me seriously! which was a relief. As I grew more comfortable with them I began talking more and being honest with them.

I will not be put into hospital but they do see that I need help so they are going to write up a report on me and send it to the right people (i.e. my current counsellor) they’re hoping to get me more regular and consistent help instead of just seeing a counsellor once a month.

I feel better after talking to them but the anxiety has drained me so I am super tired right now. I think once I’ve eaten dinner I’m going to go to bed and have an early night (if I actually get to sleep)

    Hi..I have a blog about my struggles with depression and a few people I’ve been communicating with. I’m glad to hear that you found some people that you’re comfortable with. I want you to know that you ARE NOT alone. I know it feels that way and sometimes even hearing the words seems fake. But there are so many of us. If you want check out my blog….I have shared some other people’s stories (I’ve been talking to them too) and I know that they could offer support as well. I know what it’s like to be down in the dark so deep that there doesn’t seem to be any point. But I refuse to believe that we are here for no reason. If I can ever help, please feel free to reach out. ❤️
