      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   06/04/2017

      Depression, Mental Health and Crisis Support   Depression and other mental health difficulties are common amongst people on the autistic spectrum and their carers.   People who are affected by general mental health difficulties are encouraged to receive and share information, support and advice with other forum members, though it is important to point out that this exchange of information is generally based on personal experience and opinions, and is not a substitute for professional medical help.   There is a list of sources of mental health support here: <a href="http://www.asd-forum.org.uk/forum/index.php?showtopic=18801" target="_blank">Mental Health Resources link</a>   People may experience a more serious crisis with their mental health and need urgent medical assistance and advice. However well intentioned, this is not an area of support that the forum can or should be attempting to offer and we would urge members who are feeling at risk of self-harm or suicide to contact either their own GP/health centre, or if out of hours contact NHS Direct on 0845 4647 or to call emergency services 999.   We want to reassure members that they have our full support in offering and seeking advice and information on general mental health issues. Members asking for information in order to help a person in their care are seeking to empower both themselves and those they represent, and we would naturally welcome any such dialogue on the forum.   However, any posts which are deemed to contain inference of personal intent to self-harm and/or suicide will be removed from the forum and that person will be contacted via the pm system with advice on where to seek appropriate help.   In addition to the post being removed, if a forum member is deemed to indicate an immediate risk to themselves, and are unable to be contacted via the pm system, the moderating team will take steps to ensure that person's safety. This may involve breaking previous confidentiality agreements and/or contacting the emergency services on that person's behalf.   Sometimes posts referring to self-harm do not indicate an immediate risk, but they may contain material which others find inappropriate or distressing. This type of post will also be removed from the public forum at the moderator's/administrator's discretion, considering the forum user base as a whole.   If any member receives a PM indicating an immediate risk and is not in a position (or does not want) to intervene, they should forward the PM to the moderating team, who will deal with the disclosure in accordance with the above guidelines.   We trust all members will appreciate the reasoning behind these guidelines, and our intention to urge any member struggling with suicidal feelings to seek and receive approproiate support from trained and experienced professional resources.   The forum guidelines have been updated to reflect the above.   Regards,   The mod/admin team

logynon pill

Recommended Posts

i have today been prescribed logynon contraceptive pill hoping to see if this makes my period less heavy and easier to manage /cope/deal with each month rather than dreading and making me feel so yukky awful and rough with it! hoping it stablalises my moods too as everywhere when time of month even worse the doc told me the blood (hormone) tests all came back normal levels

 

so just wondering if it just plain stress worrying causing me feel dizzy tired no energy alot of time! still puzzled mystery still out there not solved but just putting down to depression/anxiety playing up maybe! i got to go back in three months see if it is working and to check blood pressure as risk of side effect of high blood pressure though he checked mine today and was normal fine! and i asked about weight gain and he said i could possibly experience fluid retention but not FAT gain! so that reassures me great deal more!

 

if i told my doctor i'm having suicidal thoughts/feelings ? would this have to go any further or this that confidential? plucking up the courage tell him today having panic attack over telling him couldn't breathe heart beating real fast scared afraid! don't know if it is cause time of month or if it depression too? confusing on where i stand here all i know is don't feel in good place mentally at the moment!

 

just fingers crossed it works for the good now!

 

has anyone had success with this contraceptive pill at all ? as know there's loads different types out there?

Mumble   

when u was on this type of pill did it make you put on ANY weight with fluid retention?

If you're really that worried about this side-effect, then perhaps the issue you're taking the medication to treat isn't as bad as you suggest? If you were genuinely having real difficulties, these side-effects would be the last worry on your mind.

Smiley, if u have side affects that are causing problems- THEN YOU MUST TELL YOUR GP, and then they will be able to look into other pills until found the right one. I have been taken of mine for a reason but my nurse wants me to go on the coil which i am saying NO because there are complications and i don't like being touched and anything revolving surgery makes me think of dying :( thats how it were when i had a skin graft for my burn
