I was supposed to see Dr B on the 6th of Feb, but for one reason or another it got cancelled and now I won’t see him until March. By the time I do see him, it will have been about 6 months since my last appointment. It’s pretty unacceptable, but when you only have […]
An Update On My Journey
So, I was looking back through my blog and noticed that it had been quite a while since I posted anything about my mental health journey. I was shocked to see that it had been nearly 5 months and thought that I had better update my blog with everything that has been going on in […]
Mental Health Inequalities
I am writing this post based on a report I have read from The Centre for Economic Performance and The London School of Economics and Political Science. he report is entitled How mental illness loses out in the NHS.

So, today I saw my psychiatrist in what seemed like forever. I think it might actually have been months rather than weeks.
He asked me how school was going. I told him that I had to apply for mitigation because of everything that had gone one.

Wow – How Long?
I know, I know. It’s been way too long since my last update. A few things have happened since my last update.

I have been seeing an advisor from the jobcentre re my
Update Time Again

I was talking to him about what had happened to him in the past (I won’t name names or tell details –
Visit Number Umpteen
So, I had another appointment with Dr B today. It was a weird one. He asked questions and then talked over me when I tried to answer. Oh well.
I asked him about my official diagnosis and he seems to be using cyclothymia and recurrent depressive disorder. So, I am not quite sure what my official diagnosis is anymore.
