I feel multiple layers of rage and frustration at a time of year which I usually love. I'm working hard to stay calm and grounded, but it's bloody difficult. After two months of being ignored and not knowing what's going on between my psychiatrist and fertility consultant - and still not knowing - I had my discharge meeting with the Community mental health team on Friday and it was an absolute joke. No resolutions, no explanations, nothing. How is that supposed to help my mental health?!
I've approached another fertility clinic with the hope of progressing with them next year. That has given me some comfort. I've also been trying to cheer myself up with comedy, dinner with friends, decorating my tree, mulled wine and a visit to see the amazing light show in the village next door to me. It was really beautiful, comforting and magical. I love this kind of thing - colours and light displays and symmetry.
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.
