Something’s not right

Senior Contributor

An Absence...

I've neglected to join or answer posts the last couple days. I really haven't felt like it, as my demons are taking up so much space in my mind that there's not much room for anything else. PTSD, Anxiety, Depression in all its glory and faucets...

Now one of my Mental Health nurses knows my most recent issues and that things are getting worse.

She sent my psychiatrist a long email today and hopefully my psych will read through it tomorrow once home from holidays tomorrow. Methinks my first Admission is imminent. 

Yes I'm safe at home right this moment...but I will be much safer once admitted to the private hosp. I have been in and out of since 2012.

I'm not expecting anything from posting this, guess I'm just making an appearance to say "I'm here...life sucks...I'm getting good help and will be okay... Haven't forgotten about you all..." 

Anyway, I did bake some cupcakes from a sugar-free recipe...yummy!

And that is all. Sorry.......

Re: An Absence...

Hey @ButterflyWings , I'm sorry you're struggling a lot, I do hope you're okay. I'm always here if you need someone to talk to or just listen.

 

No need to apologise for you not being here though, we all need time to ourselves whether that's on or off the forums. It's self care and it's essential for everyone, so don't feel bad about making this post and not coming on here, it's all good. Everyone understands.

 

Please be safe and take care of yourself

Re: An Absence...

Thank you @Judi9877 ...taking things gently. We just had a visit from a gorgeous neighbouring cat who loves to hang out with us for a while. He's so sweet.

Re: An Absence...

Hi @ButterflyWings . That's great to hear about a visit from a cat! My cat has just turned 4 today- Mitz- and she's gorgeous! I've had her since she was 3 months old and although she's not an affectionate cat of sorts, she's great company when things are bad. Animals are special in that kind of way.
