Good luck Tuesday. I hope you manage to go to that appointment. The sleep situation sucks. That must be really difficult for you.

Got a psychaitrist appointment tuesday. Hoping an old friend will go with me.

Still serious sleep issues I'm lucky if I get 2 to 3 hrs on zolpidem.  Plus small amount of Quetipine and melatonin

Hi all,

Thank you for all the support you have given to this research. With your help I have been able to gain over 400 participants online.  This will really help to increase the impact of this research.

However, I'm hoping for a little more help as I really need more men to participate in this research. This is men that have and have not engaged in self harming behaviours. If you are a man please help by completing this research. Alternatively, if you are willing to share the research link (copy and paste it to emails/facebook etc) with other men in your lives that would be amazing too. Any help at all would be fantastic!

Many thanks,

KG

Work does sound awkward. Bless you. I wish it was easier for you.

Thanks xx

I canít seem to maintain any stability in my mood. Iím still finding myself considering suicide and feeling that I canít go on.

I donít know what to do about work. I canít cope with this tense environment ever day. He wonít talk to me so I canít work it out with him. Itís our Christmas party in 3 weeks and Iím dreading it. In fact I donít think Iím going to go. Itís being held miles away and our branch are going together in a mini bus, so itís not like Iíd be able to leave early if it was uncomfortable. Iíve talked to a friend about the situation and she thinks heís treating me pretty badly. I wish I could turn my feelings off for him, but itís not that easy.

I feel so out of control and out of my depth in every area of my life. I want so badly to run away.

Sensible.

Also I presume that you're getting your single person discount on your council tax - if not, make sure that you claim it, it's usually 25% off the full price.

Sounds like you are getting on top of things. Well-done. That is great. Good luck at the pysch appointment. I hope it goes well and you are able to put your point across. Hopefully they will take what you want into consideration.

I went to the local council help centre today about this huge bill I have for overpaid benefits. The lady was actually very nice and reassuring. She apologised for the second Ďcomputer generatedí letter I got demanding £2,000 immediately. The original letter I got which had a manageable repayment plan is the only one I need to deal with. Basically Iím still entitled to £135pm housing benefit, but they are only going to pay me £55 per month and take the other £80 as my monthly repayment. Iíve done all my sums and Iíll still be alright financially even with the extra rent payment and the full council tax I have to pay. I still get my wages, tax credits and DLA so Iíll be ok.

Have decided to go to the psychiatrist appointment next week. Just to see what he has to say. I donít want to get sucked back into the mental health system but hopefully Iíll be able to negotiate just being seen by primary care instead.

Might be an opportunity to have a relatively informal chat with your psychiatrist - doesn't mean that you need further involvement than that necessarily.

Do try and make the time to either talk to the DSS or get someone in the CAB to do it on your behalf - it's important that you're seen as trying to sort things out with them, rather than waiting for them. It'll stop you worrying, too.

If you're finding working with this guy difficult, perhaps you could both agree to be professional at work at all times - outside work is an entirely different matter. Lots of workplaces ban such relationships because of the difficulties that can arise working together - it wouldn't be fair for you to need to change your job because of him.
