I am a 32 year old female with Schizoaffective Disorder. For the past couple of months I have been struggling with my mental health. I have had traumatic flashbacks, wanted to stop all my medication, been high, been anxious, spent five nights in the Crisis House (Haven House) and been low. I have had two deaths in a fortnight who I was very close to, started some counselling and got a job interview at City Hospital.
Life has been very busy and it has upskittled me. I have had contact with my CPN Melissa Yates from Manor Road in Carlton, and more intensively during her two weeks holiday I have had contact with the County Crisis Team daily. Mostly I have seen Sarah Cheetham and Natalie. I have also used the duty worker system at Manor Road in Carlton and spoke to Nurses Sue and Tracey Duckworth.
My interview is early Monday morning and I am not entirely ready to go back to work but want to see what happens. If I am offered the job and I still can see my nurse Melissa and my Psychiatrist Dr Steels (also from Manor Road, Carlton) then I might accept it. But I do still need their support.
I wanted to thank the team at Manor Road and the County Crisis Team for their recent support. I can be difficult and dependant at times but could not stay safe and calm without their support. I think I would struggle a lot without their support. Thank you.
