Good days, bad days.

Friday, September 23, 2011

We all have these don't we.
Mine of late have been somewhat extreme.
One day I'm happy laying a few slabs to help create another sitting area in the garden or picking fruit etc., and another I'm in hospital feeling so low that I have taken another overdose.
The problem is I never know how and when these days will strike, leaving me in an hospital bed for 4-5 days confused and ashamed of myself.
Today I am having my initial appointment with the "Intake and Treatment" team in Peterborough, who will start my therapy which may take (if it works) 6-18 months but, like weight loss, it has to start somewhere!
My (hopefully) final court appearance is Monday and so if so, will lift a lot of pressure from my mind.
I had already attained an Psychiatric report when the courts requested a 6 week adjournment to obtain their own. The 6 weeks passed with nothing happening causing me stress that led to another overdose and being discharged an hour late of the hearing which has now been dated for this coming Monday.
The courts have accepted that it was their fault for not carrying out their own report and have since taken a copy of mine. Why couldn't they have done this from the beginning and saved both time and stress.
I feel so weak, even exercise which I have been doing doesn't lift the mood any either but, hopefully, whatever the outcome this sad episode may soon behind me.

Oh, nearly forgot to say, but I'm also experiencing the most wonderful toothache with 2 of my teeth needing extraction next week also, one of which is a wisdom tooth.
That's a shame as I need all the wisdom I can get just right now!

Take care all,

    Sure you will be glad when today is behind you. Officialdom is crazy isn't it! Once today is over I am sure you will again find the joy in working in the garden and I am sure the treatment will help even if like weight loss taking it slowly and gently is the way to go, without the instant results we all seem to crave today. emoticon
