thank you Ox and Candy
i had no contact for a month and felt sad at first but got through that part and began to feel better, in control of my life. Then they moved his Psychiatric nurse to another centre and for the past 2 weeks he has not been allocated another one or a social worker. I have contacted his mental health team 3 times telling them about the situation and that I cannot contact him but they just said they will allocate him a new nurse on January 5th when the manager gets back. This is why I stepped in, my downfall, to rescue the dog because no one else could help. He on a section 3 so he could be detained for up to 6 months.
I see i am following an old pattern of rescuing him not directly but rescuing all the same. I feel stronger today and will continue the no contact.
God Bless you both xxx

‘Caring for someone with bipolar disorder can be overwhelming’.

‘Caring for someone with a psychiatric illness is especially hard for many reasons. Health care coverage is far more limited than for other illnesses. Just getting someone who is in a state of mania — even when psychotic — hospitalized and accurately diagnosed is a major accomplishment. ……..’

There is also a site which explains why you feel the need to self-harm and how you can empower yourself to overcome those feelings.


Not all of the information will apply to you but sift through it and take from it what you need.

Hope this helps.

thank you so much for the links and for your support. I am going to read them both now.
May 2011 bring you and Ox and everyone here a peaceful, self empowering year!!

I concur – NO CONTACT: That means:

Deleting his telephone number
Blocking FaceBook
Delete email address
No contact with his family or his friends

‘NO” is a complete sentence!

Stay Healthy – Stay Away!

Take the advice of this experienced group!

God speaks to you through other people – take his advice!

Be kind to yourself! 🙂

Peace and Blessings
