T = THERAPY. LillBlu’s A to Z challenge.. 19/7/19

How my head feels on a daily basis!

OK so Therapy…

I clearly am in need of some but I never realised how hard it would be to get.

I have been trying now for the last year to access some kind of talking therapy in my local area but the only one available has told me I am basically too bad for them to treat at this time!

Where does that leave me? What am I supposed to do now?

I thought when I finally got an actual diagnosis I would be more able to access support and services than before but in actuality the reverse appears to be the truth of it.

I know the NHS is a struggling organisation but surely them and indeed the rest of the world have realised that mental health is the next big crisis to hit humanity. Its already showing in the UK. Work place absenteeism is on the rise with more and more people claiming out of work benefits for mental rather than physical ailments,

I myself am one of the many thousands in the system having been out of work and claiming sick benefits since march of last year. Partly due to the back injury but mainly due to my mental health deterioration.

I honestly feel that if the correct support and treatments were available from day one I would be back in work already instead of hiding in my kitchen hoping the outside world doesn’t try to interact with me today. Its pathetic.

Writing on here has been a huge help to me and the words of encouragement I have received have blown me away and given me a slim piece of confidence that wasn’t there previously. I cant thank all of my followers enough for the free therapy I have received in reading your own struggles and seeing your strengths shine through.

You all give me hope. Thank you.

  1. I think we all could use some therapy. Even the therapists. I have found, since I have yet to see a therapist, that there can be many sources you can gain similar benefits from. Being able to find someone to talk to who is non judgmental and will listen to all you have to say and maybe even suggest things that could possibly help( that we never listen to. Especially if they are right). Nature is also brings me solace. Finding a place that brings you peace. A place you draw comfort from. Meditation I have heard helps. I just started so I cannot speak of the benefits as of this moment. Do something that you enjoy that you get lost in. That can be therapeutic as well. It is good you seek help and feel that you need it. I wish I could be of more help.

      1. We all need help from time to time. I have been there. I understand all too well. Especially when you know you need help and no one can or will. In those moments it’s easy to want to give up. But don’t. Please.
