Sorry about the other night guys, I just had one of those times when I needed to write, yet no words would come out, which quite frankly, suck. It’s like I know what will help me out, yet I just can’t actually do it. I can almost hear my brain laughing at me! 🙁
D’ya know what, I’m sick of this stuff now.
Had a great meeting with my care coordinator yesterday, which was great. However, I’m now worried that I’m going to lose her, and get a therapist instead. Which, on the face of it, is great… BUT…
So my last post was my open response to the CEO of TEWV NHS Foundation Trust.
I got a response… from his PA.
Let’s go! (Credit to Bring Me The Horizon!)
I write a lot of bad things about the mental health system around me, but I actually had a really fantastic appointment with the psychiatric doctor on Tuesday.
I’ve never written to you before, and I doubt you’ll write back in all honesty. But I want to pose you some questions that really bug the hell out of me about you, and one day, I’d really like you to be able to answer me.
Through reading various things, I’ve realised that food really is something that we really either over or under do when we’re feeling bad. We look for quick choices, that end up doing us more harm than good in the long run, and can even affect our body image almost instantly.
So, firstly, I’m sorry for not updating you lately. If I’m totally honest, I’ve not felt like it, not really felt able to, and then work got in the way. I know that’s shit, but unfortunately, it’s the way my damn life is!
So this week has been a pretty mixed bag for me. I’ve had stress, I’ve had very down times, but equally, I have had one good day, where I finally passed my Microsoft exam, and am now officially a Microsoft Certified Professional! Which is awesome. But, my body is still very much in withdrawal from Duloxetine, and it’s still very much taking its toll. I’m down to 60mg now, and actually due to go down to 30mg from tomorrow night.
Righty-oh, so this is going to be a biggie. But then, it’s a flipping huge topic to cover, and so this is going to be my idea about how to reform the mental health care system in the UK. So I’d go get yourself a brew and an oreo or two… 🙂 Continue reading “My idea: How to reform Mental Health Care”
