Thank you. My local mind don't exist anymore. Some of the group's I been to have been for mh. I just cannot afford the petrol to get to some of them. I need to save money on my petrol bill. There are not many local groups, most of them are in the city. Tonight will be my first night without my knitting group. It costs me around £5 in petrol to get there.

Good, I hope you are entitled to something to help, CAB will be helpful.
Taking small steps re budgeting is the vest thing. Changing broadband providers is a good start :). When you see CAB they'll probably check things like your gas/electric suppliers to make sure that you have the cheapest.
Any more thoughts about groups? Personally I like talking to old people because they know everything and usually have interesting stories, that's not always the case though, some are grumpy and talk about their illnesses all the time! A lot of MIND branches do groups specifically with MH probs, might be worth a try?
At least things are getting done for you now.  :hug1:

+1. It could be that your meds need adjusting. Can you distract from the noise by listening to music via earphones?

I have an appointment with citizens advice bureau in 2 weeks time. We are going to see if I am entitled to working tax credits or anything else. I have changed my broadband to a cheaper provider with the help of my pa. I have also looked more at what I have coming in and going out of my account each month.

Do you have anyone working with you at the moment that you can talk to?

Hi
I am currently spiralling downhill again. I came out of hospital in April and have gone back to work, but the noise in my head is getting louder and the urge to hurt myself is desperate. I donít know what to say just I need some support.

I did go to a walking group at one point but it folded. Plus it was little old ladies so I felt like an outcast. They have started up again but I have forgotten the time of it.

I'm not very good at budgeting either, I think it can be difficult for many people. It does sound like some advice would help you, I hope you can get some soon.
Could you try a walking group? With the weather being so nice there's probably something local and they're usually quite cheap if not free. Or maybe just arrange to go for a walk with your friend on the evenings where you have no groups and maybe you could split the cost of petrol if needed? It will be difficult for a while, I hope you can figure something out.  :hug1: :hug2:

Hopefully. My friend is concerned about me missing groups but understands why I have to miss them. The cpn was concerned about it and has put that in her supporting letter. I am finding it really difficult to stick to a budget and don't know what my outgoings are!
