My Bipolar Perspectives of a Unipolar World: My First Year Under Psychiatric Care
Following on from my first attempt at putting something together, I’ve been trying to formulate my experiences of my first year in Psychiatric Care. Already however, I have realised that it is only 12 months since my first Psychiatrist appointment. With this in mind, it’s brought the back story into play. Already there is a better way of getting my message across as it will document the process and time scales for your appointment with a Psychiatrist and what to expect.
I’m hoping to be able to explain it thoroughly and then maybe someone else who is now in the position I was, will take comfort in the fact it isn’t a ‘me’ thing. I often thought I was being ignored and forgotten about, being a nuisance constantly phoning the CMHT (Community Mental Health Team) to chase up my appointments and what is going on.
I’ve attached a link above of my opening couple of pages and it’s just literally that at the moment.
I’m going to be brutally honest about everything and I’m including my mood diary entries for a clearer picture. I sometimes read accounts of Mental Illnesses that are diluted down as to not shock. I feel that this is romancing what it is.
