I have a support worker and I’d like to work on getting out the house and achieve things I’m unable to on my own.
I’d like your ideas of things I could try, maybe things you’ve tried with your support or care team?
Maybe things other people with out mental illness are able to achieve especially at aged 25?
My ideas are….
- I’d like to go out for a walk around the area I live,
- I’d like to walk a bit farther, maybe a a short drive then a walk,
- Making a cup of tea or coffee for someone else.
- Go in to a shop
- Buy something in a shop by self service
- Buy something at a check out with a person where you need to talk.
- Go to a shop and not buy something
- Walk up town
- Volunteer at the rspca, church,
- Maybe if i’m accepted go to a group therapy
- Go to a gym club
- Go swimming at the gym.
Any other ideas will be greatly appreciate?
I had a chat with dad today. It was a really nice chat and we don’t do it enough.
I’m so grateful for my dads support and help he gives me.
My Dad said my illnesses and admitted I had an illness, this was a massive step. My parents have always gone round the fact I suffer with mental illness.
I love my parents and I’m so grateful that my dad was able to give me the time and thought today.
I hope that there’s more to come.
Dylan my gorgeous baby boy. I love him no’s much. He gives me so much love and support even though he is a doll. He is my baby.
This week has not come to an end quick enough.
I’m struggling with the voices and my thoughts are all over the places
I’m scared and think the self harm is going to take a big kick down that road.
I hate it when I don’t have control.
Today i had my 3 months review with my psychiatrist at the local mental health hospital.
I was so scared. I was meant to be meeting my new cpn. That’s for another blog post.
My cpn, support worker, carer and psychiatrist were all in the one rooks, it was very intimidated. I didn’t really know what to say.
They always want to talk about the spying and my feelings around that. It confuses me because i do see how that is relevant. I know they say it’s because i have an illness that makes me thing these kind of things.
Anyway my clozapine is being increase to 150 mg morning and around 2pm, and then 200mg before bed.
I will still be taking 600mg daily of pregabline, and the medications for my physical health.
Anyway I’m note really sure what was said and that. I’m so there was said and i cant remember much.
Things have been really tough. The voices are uncontrollable at times. Blood test Monday took two attempts with the needle so that’s better than the usual 6 times.
I don’t really want medication anymore
I don’t trust my care team. So I’m not seeing them.
I received a letter today about a meeting with my psychiatrist and care co-ordinatior.
Too scared to go out and enjoy the weather. I wish I could, xx
