Do you have family, friends, social workers and a medical team that would act as a safety net if you were to become psychotic again? It’s a good idea to have something in place just in case. Do you have a plan?
- yes I have a good support network
- no I have no one
- maybe someone will help me
I have my parents and thats about it. I dont have friends. None. Zero.
Most of my support network is internal cause of my alters. Externally I only have my parents I like to think they’d support me but sometimes I’m not sure.
Edit one of my therapists might care
I said maybe just because it depends on the person, the day, the time of day, and whether or not I have done something to piss them off recently.
I have a good support network made up of a nurse who is at my senior living community, also a nurse who is my psychiatric case manager at the V.A., my pdoc at the V.A., and a V.A. peer support specialist who works with me too. I feel that I am very well supported. I know that I am very blessed. And, I need this kind of support too because when I get depressed, I don’t get just sad, I go straight to suicidal mode, with plans.
I have a good nurse and loving parents, whether I feel I can talk to them is another matter
I have a good network.
There’s almost always someone if I need someone to talk to.
I have supportive friends and family, a lovely nurse, and a dedicated home guide or whatever they’re called.
I feel safe that if something bad should happen to me like a dip in my mental health, someone would be there to help me through it.
I have my parents and 2 friends and my therapist. Its pretty nice but i still find myself isolated a lot of the time
I have a very good support network.
Family Members (Father, Brother)
My nurse is very nice with me and my psychiatrist seems to care about my wellbeing but my family is a mess…
Just have two people my therapist and my partner.
I live in an assisted living center where I get all the company I want, which isn’t much. I’m grateful to have it, though. I don’t need much in the area of outside stimulation, but experience has taught me I can’t be completely alone. I’m grateful to the taxpayers for giving this place for me to live.
I have my husband and my psychiatrist, but they have relied solely on me to tell them when I’m not okay. I don’t know how they would handle it if I wasn’t able to tell them or didn’t tell them that I need help. Sometimes I feel like my husband is in denial.
I live alone in an one bedroom apartment and don’t have any friends. 7am-3pm M-F my psychiatric services are available. I go to AA and have a Sponsor. I have a sister who lives 1000 miles away, and a mom who is on hospice care with severe dementia. My sister is always busy and hardly ever has time to talk. I usually call a former case manager who retired and talk to her. I call my AA Sponsor once a day, but he’s busy and we only talk for a couple of minutes. I chose maybe someone will help.
I’ve got my girlfriend and her family. I don’t think my family would do anything if I got too sick, based on how they treated me in the past.
I’m also doing a study, so I know if the people who work there notice any serious problems, they will be addressed by one or both of the psychiatrists I see each time.
I used to have such a team while severe, but no longer have one. Nowadays I can handle most things.
I do. I have my mom, my two cats, my two friends, and a social worker. I also see a psychiatrist but I don’t see her very often these days.
My husband is the best support I could ever hope for. My mom is really good too. I also have a good pdoc (for his med cocktail, not his bed side manner). And my counselor is wonderful!
