So our Girl's Christmas Sunday lunch we were all really looking forward to was eventually cancelled for definite, once the Tiers were established Saturday evening. At the moment I work in Tier 4 but I live in Tier 2. I am very confused about the Tiers. Anyhoo, to compensate for yet another disappointment this year, I've booked Mrs Brown's Boys D'live show celebrating 10 years of the show for next June. I am a massive fan and have wanted to see the cast live for years!
I've been coming to terms this week with incidents before my last hospital stay. There's a lot of things I don't remember. I wanted to hear from my counsellor what had happened in the session when she'd called the Duty GP because the knife had fallen out of my pocket and I had confessed to hearing voices in an email earlier that week. She said I was incoherent, but because I was able to say I was ok to go home and didn't want an ambulance, the Duty doctor told my counsellor they couldn't section me.
Hearing that now and I feel a great deal of remorse. I hadn't intended to hurt my counsellor. I am so grateful she is still willing to see me. She says it's good we can talk about these things openly. She also reminded me we are dealing with big stuff here and it's ok. There are going to be bumps along my recovery journey.
I was also invited to provide feedback to the CQC about my 6 visits to A&E during those awful 3 weeks before being sectioned. I've been going back over my ramblings and rants in my diary to piece together things. I think the ambulance and A&E staff were amazing and, incredible to me, non judgemental. I just expect everyone to have a judgement. I told them the Psyche Liaison Team were diabolical. I can't believe the difference from my previous hospital admission in 2018. I don't know if that falls under the remit of this particular CQC feedback, but I said it anyway. Now that I am feeling stronger, I need to understand everything that happened so I can file it away. It's how my brain works!
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.
