Am I crazy? - June 4th 2013, 12:49 AM

This thread has been labeled as triggering, particularly on the subject of self harm, by the original poster or by a Moderator. The contents of this thread might therefore not be suitable for certain sensitive users. Please take this into consideration before continuing to read.

I don't even know if this is the right place to post this but hey ho.
I have been assigned a CPN (community psychiatric nurse).
I am not really sure as to why this has happened.
I mean I've looked up on what a CPN is and what they do but from what I have read, the reason you get one is because your severely mentally ill...
I don't see myself as severely mentally ill, nor do I see myself as ill.
I don't understand, yes I self harm but since when does that make you mentally ill. Its a coping mechanism. Just like the poems I write, but now that I have read all this stuff its making me feel like im crazy.
I know there is nothing wrong with having a mental illness.
My mother has one.
I just don't understand why I have been assessed and now been assigned this strange person I don't even know , far less want to speak to about my struggles and past.
I guess I just want to know if anyone else on here has had a CPN?
and do you have to be severely mentally ill to receive one?

A CPN is for people who might be a danger to themself or who might need special help cause they might open up to them.
Please don't feel bad and think your crazy. If they gave you a CPN they must care about you alot.

Good luck

Every heartbreak we go through makes us the perfect person for our soulmates. Shaping us into what they've always been looking for.

Need to talk, PM me.

To people(like me) who think asking for help annoys people I say:
It would bother me if you DIDN'T ask for help.
