Survivor Room / Counselling session
« Last post by Oriane0806 on Yesterday at 09:27:41 AM »
So I had my second counselling session and it was so good. As I left, I was so happy I felt like I actually accomplished something and I am closer to getting better. The counsellor made me realise so many things that I never noticed before but it was so obviously that I felt that way. Counselling can be a really good thing I highly recommend it. The only advice I have is that you have to be honest and open otherwise you won't get help or get better.

Survivor Room / Perception of Self in self-harm: Research!!
« Last post by Faye on April 26, 2017, 08:58:49 PM »
Hello Everyone!

Firstly, I would like to thank you all for opening this post and reading further. Basically, my name is Faye and Iím currently studying a MSc Psychology course at Nottingham Trent University! I need your help with my research project, itsí based on perception of self in those who self-harm.

Itís a pretty simple study, I just need quite a bit of your time and a lot of detail. So if any of you are interested I will email you four sets of questions, which are all about you guys! Please do not worry, itís just a 1 to 1 basis with myself and no one will have access to my email account. You are free to withdraw at any time, as of course this is a rather sensitive topic and may cause emotional responses. Your answers will be used in the final write up for the study but you will be given a false name so no-one will be able to identify you.

If you have any questions or would like to take part please reply to this post or PM me, and Iíll provide you with further contact details.

Thanks for reading,

Faye

Still not much progress and a great deal of worry.  One more major incident and a handful of smaller ones in the past 8 or 9 days.  I'm now looking to see if I can get Cahms to refer him to a unit like the Priory as they clearly do deal with this type of issue.  I even took a look at their private care but at over £800 a night and him likely needing weeks or months of care that's just not possible.  Does anyone have any suggestions on the right things to say / questions to ask to help get that type of referral from Cahms?

Here and Now Room / Re: In a right muddle (some trig) ptsd mentioned
« Last post by Patient Pianist on April 26, 2017, 02:58:41 AM »
Hi,

Thank you so sad for replying. i am sorry for not replying.
i really don't think i can face the reality of tomorrow. ive been diagnosed with ptsd. tomorrow is the first of a set of six group sessions and even though i know i don't have to discuss why, everyone will be there.  i have played it over and over; do i go but refuse to speak (i will be sick), ring up and cancel and say i can't cope with the group sessions even though i know i have to do the group sessions to do any further work with the trauma services, they will say i am failing to engage, do i stop? i cant even call it giving up anymore. My levels of anxiety are really hard to manage at the moment. If i am not in fully functioning work mode i cant do anything.

i am honestly not even sure of my own independent skills at the moment. i have already taken all my prescribed anti anxiety meds for today, my brain in racing and i am so hot. i keep trying to drink more water but i just need the toilet the whole time, all i can hear is the clock ticking, but its too quiet without the battery in, something is fizzing and my sleep music isnt helping.  i truly dont know why i am still here. how do i tell the few people i know, that i really really don't want to be alive?

i can't go tomorrow, i know i cant. i am sorry.

I know what you mean. It's the upsetting/unpleasant stuff that is newsworthy, and not the good stuff - and it seems to be everywhere. But I don't think that it's any worse than at any other time, people aren't any worse, it's just that with globalisation the baddies get massive coverage, and the goodies don't. Sometimes I wonder whether life would be better without 'news' - we should demand a 'good news' channel as an alternative - presented by someone like SpongeBob.

There's nothing wrong with wanting to make other people happy, and it can give you a great sense of satisfaction. If you really think about everyday life, we all 'use' others to an extent - it's just usually reciprocated, which makes it fair.

If someone still owes you money, either be assertive and suggest a date that it's returned to you by, or just write it off and learn from the experience. Either ways, as you say, it's not much and probably not worth the distress it causes.

Still looking forward to your holiday?
