Thumbs down f**k! letter.... opinions please! and help! - August 12th 2009, 03:51 PM

This thread has been labeled as triggering by the original poster or by a Moderator. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I got a letter from CAMHS this morning.... its the letter they have sent to adult services cos im 18 in december... its really wound me up... do think its harsh and could have been said better? it has really upset me!
im only using quotes cos it will bore u with the whole letter!
'I supsect that she will not need ongoing treatment at this age but due to the high levels of anxiety that she can create in the professional system we felt it was helpful if your service was aware of her.'

'she has a long standing history of problems in managing her emotion andshe uses self-harm as a means of doing so. her mood is variable but in the time that we haev known her she has not shown signs of a depressive illness, though she does at times feel very low with suicidal thoughts'

'Georgia has been managed by community support'

does this letter make me sound like an attention seeker who doesnt have an illness but causes lots of problems and needs to be managed?!! or am i just being stupid? cos thats is how it appears to me!

also, my best friend just told me that her mum slapped her again!
im so angry right now and im desperate to cut!
dunno what to do!

i think the letter is just trying to tell you or your parents [ who ever the letter was adressed to ] that you need more help and reporting whats going on with you.

you dont sound like an attention seeker just like someone who wants help and is getting it. dont feel embarassed of ashames. its okay!

just focus on you getting better.


has your friend seen anyone about her mom, or gotten any help.
it seems like her and her mothers relationship is unhealthy an could escalate, if thats the case you get her to talk to a trusted adult.

you can help her but dont take on the burden making yourself feel worse and possibly self destructive.

good luck (:

dont do anything to harm your self please, adleast talk to someone about it
you dont have to hurt yourself. the letter is just to let you no of your progress to try and push you further.

im glad that you are helping your freind, maybe you can both talk to someone.
that way you wont feel so alone. talk to a therapist or sit down and talk to her mom about how this affects you and her.


feel free to pm me.
