Hope you're feeling better
Thank you Cindy, and everyone
Careful Kym, caffeine may tip you the other way.
It's okay Noel, I live off coffee a lot of the time! My body is used to it by now
Wow! And to see a kestrel too - envious:). Well done you
It was hovering right in front of me :) Had such a good day yesterday
I remember reading about him a long time ago. Is he the anti psychiatry guy? I always thought that if I were ever treated by a psychiatrist like him I'd be out of my tree the whole time with him trying to talk me out of mania and psychosis without...
...using medication. Wow, it must have been a nightmare for his patients. How they must have suffered...
I just looked him up again. 'Schizophrenia is just a theory' - bull***! Tell that to the millions of people around the world who hear voices, suffer delusions, and have hallucinations...
It does anger me as well, it's like when people say 'the real you' will be changed if you take medication, well no, the real me doesn't enjoy hearing voices and would prefer to work and be happy
Or saying you should be on the minimum amount to 'get used to dealing with your symptoms'.. Like, would you say that to a diabetic who 'should get used to crashes'.. It's a medical condition, a chemical imbalance of the brain is physical
I didn't know Laing had those kinds of views, I will investigate, cheers
Just being youself... Simultaneously the easiest and hardest thing in the world. Good for you for being ok.
I'm so proud of you! Stay safe and keep being yourself.
Thank you :) That means a lot
With regard to the UC, does your council have a crisis fund you can apply to? Or maybe the CAB could suggest something? I was really lucky that I managed to get a job just before I would have been switched to UC. That system is a disgrace
There is a CAB in a nearby town so yes I think that's a good idea, I will make an appointment. I've heard terrible things about it but I need the money
Ah sorry to hear that - I've had such good experiences with CAB. Fingers crossed for you!
Thank you :) I mean UC not the CAB office. I haven't been on any benefits in about 6 years so I'm not sure what to expect
Your on a rock in space, what are you going to do?
Well at you're not using the wrong your like some people!
ha don't worry about it John
