    Hi @cupcake88

    Aww no, I'm sorry to hear that.  When you say you aren't doing well, how do you mean?  There's no pressure to share anything you don't feel comfortable with but it might help us better understand  <3

    Hi @cupcake88   - I'm also sorry you've not been so good. Did you get put back on the medication you were on before you last were in hospital? Perhaps a chat with your GP might help. It's rotten that your community team aren't very good when you need support. I hope you feel a little better soon; remember to not give up hope, xx

    Sorry you're not feeling in a good place @cupcake88
    Have your team given you any coping strategies for times like this?
    Hopefully you'll feel a bit reassured now your partners back home from work...
    Hope you start to feel a bit better  :)

    Hi @cupcake88

    Ah, that must be frustrating to not feel heard.  Is there any member of staff you feel you have a better relationship with?  Try not to let it deter you from confiding in them about how you're feeling and the voices you're hearing.  It might take a little time but you will get there, and begin feeling better I'm sure.  

    In the meantime, make sure to lean on those around you for support, be that your lovely partner, your family, friends or extended virtual family on the online community.  We're all here whenever you want to talk  <3

    @chiarieds hello my good friend yes I had a chat with my gp who’s excellent he spoke to my community team and my medication has gone back to what it was minus one medication but it’s pretty back to normal now so he sorted that out for me at least x

    I'm OK thanks @cupcake88 :)

    I know what you mean, when I'm feeling bad I seem unable to do any of the things suggested...
    But sometimes just getting through the day is enough...even though it may seem a struggle. It's good your GP was able to sort your meds.

    Take care  :)
