We are posting this in the last hour of World Mental Health Day 2015; I hope it’s been a positive day for everyone 🙂
Our lives continue to be a huge struggle that most people (including professionals – maybe especially professionals?) seem to be oblivious to.
Last weekend Anon almost ended up in A&E as she was struggling to understand that the world was real; she was extremely panicky, anxious and struggling with intense paranoia.
The only reason we didn’t make the trip to hospital was because we were 99% sure it wouldn’t help, so instead we said Gog would phone and speak with our wonderfully helpful GP on Monday.
He did so, only to find out that our GP has left the surgery for good and nobody had told us.
Anon has had such bad experiences with professionals, and is struggling so much with paranoia and anxiety, that seeing a new GP is unthinkable.
We are stuck.
I hope your week has been better than ours!
