One of the best things about coming out of hospital - being able to have a bath and get properly clean! Some wards have a bath but mine at the Priory did not, and the showers are super safe ie. minimal power and on a timer so you can't drown yourself.
It would've been my Tribunal to appeal my Section on Thursday 12th with the Hearing over Zoom, but instead I'm home and slowly getting back on my feet. I've already been discharged from the Home Treatment Team and back with my CPN and to the Stabilisation plan that was in place before my admission. I'm now waiting for a Psychology assessment and family therapy. I also found out this week that HTT are understaffed, which explains why they refused my referral 3 times before I ended up being sectioned. I still strongly believe something needs to be done about this and there needs to be a much better link up between HTT and the psych liaison team, as per 2018 when it seemed to work so well.
I haven't seen my counsellor for 10 weeks since the knife incident, so it was really special and emotional to be able to see her again last Tuesday.
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
