    If you only applied on Sun it's a bit early for them to be in touch

    I'm sorry to hear that you're struggling @foryoureyesonly. What kind of mental health specialist are you referring to, if you don't mind me asking? If you're finding things really difficult to manage at the moment, I'd definitely encourage you to speak to them before your second jab if you need to. Samaritans are also always there to listen to you, even if you're not suicidal. You can call them on 116 123, or email [email protected] You can also text SHOUT to 85258 if you'd prefer to speak to someone over text. 

    I hope that you don't have to wait too long :)
