    We all need an outlet @gillian72 and it's good to get things off our chests at times. I don't think there was any harm done, so don't worry too much. :smile: I hope you're feeling a bit better today? :smile:

    So hear goes I got all my teeth out in hospital, (because I had bad experience at dentist when I was a kid) so I had a couple of appointments with him just to make sure i wasn't gonna change my mind. while I was there he kept on asking me why I don't I have these to moles on my face removed aswell an il. wake up a new woman an smile again I said no but said you can remove the two of my neck then finally my friend (ex partners cousin) said go on its free why not.the scars will be one strand of a hair and gone in. 6months time well I woke up to no teeth in. and thick black stitches in place of my moles so iive got to wide scars on my face even the holes marks from the thick black stitches I went to my Drs once after telling him what happened and asked him if these scars will gone after next 3months that makes it the 6months I was told , well I knew the answer really, NO an he said omg look I'm shocked at what he's done an if it was. say his wife he would be taking her to seek medical advice, I did nothing I was so ashamed an have toucherd myself ever since that was 18yrs ago an never told anyone only kids family side so I've never made friends kept myself to myself an now here I am only top set fitted never had bottom teeth since , top set have got to big an wearing away kept in with palygrip an fixadent an I'm so ashamed because my kids have tried everything even offer to pay private then. with my mh triggers which I've lived with since. my late teens but I can't do it I blame myself for being so f,,, stupid letting my gaurd down when I should have known better an when I feel bad I just look in the mirror. an tell myself it's my own fault so this is it I've never told anyone until my hp last yr and all of you now oh an on the p2p hp an only the one dr 18yrs ago 😂😂 so when they are asking me how my disabilitys an health problems are affecting my day to day life etc I'm getting a bit confused explaining because I don't have a time limit on my daily life because I don't have one so if I don't clean up etc for days an only if I feel ok so it's getting confusing when they ask how long it takes an how it affects me blah blahh I know I'm gonna get it wrong and this is my only chance to sort myself out an get out of here get a flot an bit of mobility coz I'm gonna end up not getting out of this 💩💩 hole coz my daughters talking about moving out an il be stuck here alone I don't know what to do anymore 😂😭

    Hi @gillian72. It must have taken a lot for you to be able to share something so personal with us and I'm glad you felt able to.
    I'm sorry you had such a terrible experience with the hospital and having your teeth and moles removed and that this still impacts you and how you look at yourself now.

    If the top set are too big and worn down would you be able to consider going to the dentist at all to get them looked at? 

    It can be really difficult to explain how your mental health impacts your day-to-day life and you're certainly not the first person to wonder how to explain it because you feel as though you don't have one. You could be quite honest and explain that in the form. There is no 'wrong' answer, if that makes sense? 
    Explain what you do in a day (and what you avoid doing/can't do) and why your days are that way.

    @Adrian_Scope thankyou Adrian & hope your good 🤗 I started to feel human an get my silly sense of humour back I wish I started chatting on here when I 1st joined I feel sad that so many of us are lonely and we all have health problems/disability// mental health issues and I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets angry and upset having to. explain when they say what's up with you or well u need to go to Drs grrrr so we all understand each other one way or another 🤗 Plus I've learnt a lot about myself an at the moment I look like a hard as 💩💩 great grandma( no offence to great grandmas ) 😇😇
  • gillian72gillian72 Member Posts: 284 Pioneering
    @Adrian_Scope oh sorry Adrian it was about my p2p assesment, I don't like telling anyone I get paranoid when I get questions like when was last time I worked I always prey they don't ask me that question I get upset because that's why I had that done an when they say or come on you must no your neighbors so my health probs / disability are also why I don't go out too , oh I don't no it's making my anxiety levels angry 😝😜

    I didn't see the bad post as I don't get on here as much as I used to nut I will always say that sometimes anger and frustration should be allowed for. By all means rant at a situation but try not to make things personal, after all there will always be people that disagree with ANY situation simply because we all see things and describe things differently. Also, in much the same way that any rant is an opinion that should be allowed to be expressed (within the board rules ofc) so too are any replies an opinion that also should be allowed in the same way. Getting upset with others is never an effective way to deal with people so, if someone finds something upsetting, then it's best for them to go away from it and come back later, when they can be more objective. This applies to posters and responders alike.

    Keep posing @gillian72 and good luck.

    Hi @gillian72 I am sorry to hear about your son I dont really know what you can do but it seems you should do something

    Maybe contact GP or look on the NHS website who will have details of who to contact for support with addiction

    I hope some other members can give you some more specific advice, maybe google for any help lines or support in your local area

    Hello @gillian72 Thanks for sharing this with us.  It sounds like you are going through a really stressful time and I'm sure we can help.

    It's important your son gets the help he needs with his drug problem asap to keep him safe.  Is your GP aware of what has been happening?  Also, which town or city do you live in?  I ask this because each area has a mental health crisis team who can provide support with drug treatment.  Your GP can refer your son or you can self-refer for an assessment.  Please let me know if you need any help finding contact details for this.

    The Frank website's Find support near you page is also a good place to search for what's available in your area in terms of drug and gambling support.  

    I know this isn't easy on you and the thought of your son being sectioned is upsetting but you are acting out of love and with his best interests in mind.  Be kind to yourself too.

    @gillian72 are you getting hospital treatment for your health problems too?  Don't forget about yourself.

    If you are challenging the initial PIP decision and want to submit a mandatory reconsideration, yep its a calendar month so 19th September.  For more information look at Scope's 'Challenging a decision about PIP or other benefits' webpage.

    @gillian72 Just to add, this NHS webpage gives links to mental health services for your son and helps you find a local urgent mental health helpline.  Please make sure to keep us updated with how you get on.  You don't have to go through this alone and we want to support you.

  • Cher_ScopeCher_Scope Community Team Posts: 2,699 Disability Gamechanger
    @gillian72 It's good to hear from you and I'm glad your son is doing better.  

    Have you been in touch with your local council tax department and explained your financial situation?  I wonder if they could come up with a repayment plan you can afford to avoid court action.  

    Also, I don't want you being cold :(  This Citizens Advice webpage gives advice on how to get support with your energy bills if you are isolating, or also if you are disabled.  

    I'm sorry you are having it difficult again.  The virus is causing so many challenges we could all do without.

    Hi @gillian72 :) I'm sorry to hear things have been difficult for you recently.

    I'm a little confused on what you mean when you say "I can't get a simple answer why I have to do this"? Is this regarding you having to call the doctors' surgery every month to get your tablets?
