No Suport Tonight

Well, I feel completely abandoned right now. I can't get a hold of my mental health case manager for anything today. I tried calling and leaving a message this morning - she never called back. I called twice this afternoon and she never called back either. I'm in a little bit of a crisis and could really use someone to talk to. I've had a stressful few days. Sunday I found out my therapist had to leave town in an emergency and I won't have any therapy for a month. Yesterday, a friend went to the ER with suicidal thoughts, but they wouldn't keep her because of her diagnosis. Yes, you read that right! So now she's back at the shelter where she is living but not feeling safe. Today, I locked my keys in my car and had to go through the whole mess of getting that fixed. Now its 5:11 PM and my case manager gets off work at 5:30, I know there is no way she's going to call me back. All I can do really is take my night time medications and go to sleep so I make it through the night.

At least you can vent or talk here and we all listen. It is tough but you'll be good.

Is there no one that can take your friend out that shelter.. That might help her to ease up on those thoughts.

Good grief! Looks as though your day has been a rough one. I once did CBT and Dialogo for about a year. I too go to therapy about once every 3 or more months and for labs and updates to my medications. Here is a link to a book I recently read by Dr. David D. Burns, called: Feeling Good: I think you would like this book: The URL is as follows: Hope things go better for you tomorrow.
