Still Here... Just!

Posted by fader , in Mental Health, Personal 15 July 2011 · 168 views

I haven't posted in ages, but I was away from the board for a while after my dad suddenly died at the end of 2010. Naturally, I've been finding it very hard to deal with that on top of everything else - the last six months have been so difficult.

Add to that a useless psychiatrist who - despite his promises - neglected to refer me to the local PTSD clinic and a load of petty, childish ridiculousness from various other people in my life and I'm in a seriously frazzled state!

Fortunately, I do have some very supportive people in my life, but there's only so much they can do (especially as some of them are suffering too), and I did finally get my referral (I'm now on the waiting list, although I've no idea how long that will be!), so the future is looking a little less bleak.

However, it's the now, the present that I'm having difficulties dealing with. How do you cope on a day to day basis? It's that I'm not finding easy. Any advice/suggestions gladly received...

I'm going to try to blog a bit more regularly here, but I may disappear for a while sometimes (I tend to hide when I'm ill and can't cope). I will be back though!

I am so sorry about your loss, it makes everything else more difficult I can see that.
The only advise I have is to be here at Pandys, it is so helpful and healing for me.
I have almost given up on my journal but somehow I can actually express myself here on the blog so, maybe that will work for you too. Posted Image
I agree - Pandys helps a lot, especially as everyone here understands how I feel without me having to explain it.

Thank you for the hug, always appreciated!
