Thank you guys and yes, infection has gone and good news, I've graduated from the Wheely machine to a zimmer/walking frame. Soon I'll have free reign without buzzing for staff, that's my next goal. Things are getting easier, they're saying that I may just bypass the rehab center and just go home because of how well I'm working with the physio team.
Trying to remain positive but it's bloody hard.
My recovery doesn't seem to progress.
My CPN left and I'm left to do all applications for my pip and housing.
No support from mh services since before my suicide attempt.
I'm trying to remain positive but emotionally, everything hurts.
I want to go home but have no home to go to and they won't discharge me till I have
It's more than okay to be struggling. That's a lot to deal with and it makes no sense to me why you don't have any mental health support. Is there anyone who can work on advocating for you so you don't have to take on more of the burden?
Please do not give me virtual hugs unless you are only using the hug function on threads. Thanks.
You can't always keep it separate.
This is happening, this is part of you.
Echoing what Camden and Lindsay said and asked. And I will add my outrage at your lack of support. I can't imagine how awful things are for you but know that there's a big load of us here rooting for you!
Are your family/hospital staff able to support at all with nagging for mental health support and help with your applications?
We may not see eye to eye, but we can respect each other's opinions and find the truth in them.
Perhaps in those honest conversations, instead of demonising each other,
we might see each other as imperfect humans, doing our best. ~ Jodi Picoult
Re support- one thing I would say (synical as it may sound) is let them refer you. Let the team assess you. If you refuse it suggests (to professionals who don’t know you) that you don’t want support. I know that’s silly and not the case but if you speak to advocacy and complain etc it will go in your favour if you’ve shown a willingness to work with all services. I’m sorry it’s this way x
