In early June 2012, I went into the Stonebridge Centre, needing to speak to someone in the crisis team, to be told this no longer exists, but someone would come and speak to me.
I was clearly very upset for all to see, because I had just been told my carer who is also my sister has terminal cancer. A person came out twice to tell me someone would be with me soon. I waited and waited, till in the end I went.
I felt like walking under a bus, but thought about my sister. Nobody to this day has rung or done a follow up on me, not even a phone call.
I suffer from borderline personality disorder, with suicidal thoughts, and have done for 18 years.
So where is the help when you need it, before I'm just another statistic? And the health team say "yes, sad case, but we have put things in order". How many times have we read or heard that? So where is my help please?
