    Welcome to the community @0898 :) I'm sorry to hear that things have been very difficult recently. 

    As Janer1967 suggested, have you spoken to your GP? Or another health professional? It sounds as though you could benefit from talking things through with a medical professional at the moment. 

    You mentioned being cut off from friends. Is there any way you could reconnect with them?

    hi janer1967 and tori scope 
    my doctor has driven me to a total mental health crisis and ive asked for my medical records and a meeting with the practice manager 
    I'm sure you will understand that the whole situation is exhausting and i have been taken to hospital as a neighbor heard me crying and called an ambulance , i had a wonderful shower and they found some clothes for me i told the psychiatrist the problem and he said he would feel the same and I was sent home i rang the doctor and he actually stopped my diazepam and cancelled my repeat order for everything except 30mg/500mg co codamol 2boxes of 100 tablets are said it was to stop me overdosing another situation was i phoned him and he said that if that was how how I was feeling to ring my GP so i still try to get them to help but after id had a bad fall i even sent pictures and they said that id have to go to the hospital it's not their problem and wouldn't even send a nurse to help me dress the cuts so i reckon I should report it  not for me but for everyone else in the same situation 
    i do have 2 friends but ones an alcoholic and the other drugs so as im an alcoholic who's not drinking im better off not connecting with them 
    my housing officer has asked the police to keep popping up to check on me so im between a rock and a hard place 
    but I will not let other people suffer suffering from their incompetence and luckily that drives me to use the knowledge and advice i have been going through to raise the community and canvass their opinions and I will at least help one person I'll be happy 
    luckily there are so many real housewives series to keep me from my mind from the **** that keeps happening.  im agoraphobic so ive been on lockdown for 10 years personally it has been so funny hearing that people are frustrated by Covid-19 and a few people have sent me messages asking me for advice i message back saying welcome to my world 
    i will hopefully move to another area and a new doctor and some peace of mind
