I’m really struggling
Hi. I’m new to this. Apart from a small bubble of family. I’m frightened of falling back to being in crisis. I’m sure for a lot of people having to isolate was difficult but for me it was normal. I don’t socialise. Or even leave the house. I have severe mental health issues which has landed me in ICU and mental health units. I’m going through a pip review at the moment. I’m currently receiving enhanced Activities of daily living and mobility. I’ve not hit rock bottom yet but with all the stress of waiting to see if I’m worthy of pip is effectively killing me. I know I’m not the only one going through this and I’m praying a paper based assessment is what there going to do. I’m sat here at 14:10 drinking which I haven’t done since my last admission. I’m breaking promises to people I love. I’m not an alcoholic but when I’m anxious not even the promazine will help me so I turn to alcohol.
I hope tomorrow will be better. Ps whoever reads this this is the second time I’ve spoken to someone other than close family or health professionals in 12 years.
