Hi Chris - where are you my dear? I hope you are able to read the posts. I hope you are reasonably o.k.
The truth is that I am struggling on my own just now.
so ...a bit of a rant to follow
The sad fact is that I went to see the psychiatrist 2 months ago
and up until now I have had no follow up letter or support.
My brain - and house are a bit muddled at the moment.
What I need to do is contact these people with a factual, no nonsense letter.
If care is not taken, I could become very ill, I keep the worst of it at bay by writing here and---strangely knitting - which I guess is a form of meditation.
but I know a minimum trigger could knock me off my balance.
I am sorry to say, that I am ashamed of some of the mental health practioners in my area - both in the formal and charity sector.
In times of real crisis I have, we have (my husband and I) begged for help - almost on our knees.
One mental health worker, who I went to in a crisis (and who didn't help - she was in a meeting and wanted to get back to it), has just written to say what a pleasure it was to work with me.
This is probably a general letter that she sends out to all the people on her list of clients.
I have had some supportive and helpful workers and professionals in my life - not in the part of the country I live in at the present time.
Re the Lamb chops -
they sound delish....
I like, but I never feel that there is enough meat on them - himself in doors likes them though.
Best wishes to you.
