It's been a mixed week of highs and lows. I spoke for almost two hours with a private psychiatrist to get his opinion on what I feel is rapid mood cycling. That whole session was exhausting, but I wanted to get it done before Christmas. Amidst the feeling euphoric one minute and depressed the next, I also feel very ignored by the fertility clinic I approached in the summer and that is stressing me out. I had hoped to be undergoing IUI treatment by now. It angers me that having mental illness means we are treated like sub standard human beings and it saddens me that the things that have given us mental illness are not our fault.
I was still feeling christmassy despite all of this and I had a wonderful six days off to unwind a little. I watched lots of great tele, spent time with family and friends and stuffed my face! It was good to be able to put the mental health hoops to one side and recharge my batteries.
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.
