Does anyone know this town? Saltspring Island. I have no choice, I need to leave my home town, too many expectations about my mental health. I've been travelling before. I need some intel about what to expect. If I do end up on t he Island, it will be to regroup and send people the right message. Psychiatrists and mental health workers, those kinds of people. Like I want them to know, back home I am feeling under pressure. The right message would be, hey I have a life and being backed up against a wall makes me feel super uncomfortable. Thinking some time away would be good. They'll see that, I'm sure. Maybe set up a small encampment before I go to motel. Wondering who I'll meet. Ah, anyway, thinking about this makes my head hurt. Alls i'm saying is, the way things are looking with my medications and support workers I have, they make me take my meds at 10:00 erry night, i'm depressed as shit over it. If I can shake them for just a month of living in the bushes where I won't be seen. I would be sending the message that I am no longer ok with them and their bullshit certification.

first, i've moved your thread to a more appropriate section (canada).

second, i don't think there's going to be anyone here that knows much about such a specific area, but i could be wrong.

third, it sounds like you're having a lot of mental health issues that fall well outside of what we are able to assist you with; i also don't have enough information on your background (historically and medically) to say whether or not you should 'run away' essentially from whatever situation you're in. i would suggest you find resources outside of a travel-oriented website like StP to assist you with sorting out these issues.

@Matt Derrick covered pretty well what I was going to say but I just want to add a few things;

I dont think this would have the outcome that yer hoping for.

Like @Matt Derrick already said we are not a mental health website and I would take any advice on yer mental health from a stranger on a travel website with a big grain of salt.

It sounds like you may need to talk to yer doctors/support workers.

Welcome to stp.

I'm asking now if anybody has been and can verify that if I go to Saltspring it won't be hard to make connections, get a job maybe, that kind of thing. I don't know how I could possibly gain insight into my mental health on a website like this, that was not my intention. Mental health can be dubious. I just want a normal way of life again, nothing to do with travelling. More just asking whos out there. But yea, running from Mental Health Org makes me giddy with the possibility that I may finally say fuck em all and finally have some time to myself. I take pills all fucking day. it blows. I'll probs keep my phone powered down then

I don't think standing outside in the rain is my idea of fun. I'm going to call it quits. Plus I have a weak judge of character.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $0.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $0.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $0.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $0.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
