Last month the staff at my home rang the police because I had threatened to OD and the police took me to A&E. I waited about 4 hrs then I saw the crisis team because the nurses called them. They gave me their number to ring when I feel down and before and after I self harm. Then we went home.
I've rung the crisis team a lot over the the past 2 months asking for help but all they do is call an ambulance so that I spend 4 hrs alone with my thoughts and free to continue hurting myself. The A&E department now keep calling security to search me, stop me from leaving to go for a smoke and force me to go back into my cubicle. Some of the security and nurses have threatened me that if I leave the hospital they will call the police and they'll force me to go back. I walked out of the hospital late last month in the early hours of the morning and they did nothing.
Crisis team in Leeds is not helping me - they keep calling ambulance and police who come to my room which isn't only now upsetting me but they are keeping staff awake. Now I'm getting blamed for being the one who puts myself in hospital by ringing the crisis team even though they actually ring the emergency services and now thanks to them I'm probably at risk of getting sectioned.
I've got Aspergers too so none of this is helping. I have now deleted the crisis team number from my phone because they are more bother than worth it.
