Where to start?
I’m struggling at the mo, SAD it’s never been so bad.
This year I’m taking a medication that means I can’t take the antidepressants that would usually be prescribed for me, so I’m struggling.
I know all the helps, that only provide temporary respite, going for a walk, exercise( which is limited to walking and swimming). Great , I hear you say, you can go swimming except at my local pool I am limited to 1 hour daily at lunchtime, this is the only time I can guarantee no children in the pool, I can’t deal with the noise otherwise, and that changes at half term too.
So you see I’ve got to fit my life around that and I am often not capable of getting there and back unless I take taxis.
So, I am an angry person at the moment, angry mainly with myself I know, I’m the one debilitated by this BI!
I find I cannot answer some posts because I know the tone of my answers would not be helpful.
I watched last night’s Horizon programme and that made me angry. Don’t get me wrong it was amazing to see what could be achieved with the right rehab. I was angry because that’s what should be available to all. There are so many people on here that would benefit from the care and attention that wonderful man got. He got it because they were obviously not short of money and he was an army, or whatever, veteran. The support is there if you can afford it!,
The NHS is never going to be able to achieve these kinds of support, I don’t even think it was ever intended to. When it was first brought in to being it was to provide basic healthcare for everyone.
There have been so many advances in medical science now I feel it is not sustainable in its present form. Plus people are living longer now with more complex challenges with their health. Plus with the migration situation our population has grown and more people have entered the system without contributing beforehand.
A contentious issue, many arguments to be had on this topic.
I have vented my spleen a little and I’m calmer now, so sorry for inflicting this on you.
Trouble is when I get like this it’s soooooo hard to move and get things done, I have so many hobbies and projects on the go there should be no excuse for inactivity, but classic depression means you can’t achieve things.
It will pass, it will pass as it has before, and no doubt will in the future.
I’ll get up now and paste the smile on my face and tell everyone I’m fine, as always.
Thank you for reading
Normal me WILL be resumed soon.
