The thoughts you perceive others to have.
I wish there were an easy fix to severe mental illness.
Because right now, I’m at a loss for words.
Because right now I feel terrible.
I don’t usually get down on myself all that much, but at present, I’m feeling that between my meds, my illness, and my upbringing, things are quite difficult!
When you have a thought disorder, enter me, the shit is real and the shit is tough!
I want to crawl under a rock, but I have better coping skills than that.
I want to just be told that things are going exactly the way they’re supposed to…
I had a psychiatrist that I saw for close to 15 years, and he was amazing!
I am giving my current psychiatrist every chance, but I have changed so much in the past four or five years, that I don’t think that A) the old doctor would completely know me; and B) the new doctor knows of where I’ve been.
And, the new doctor may very well know all of these things. It is possible.
One thing I’ve got going for me is that I am open, so if there’s a subject or subjects I want to broach with this new physician, I’m going to do it!
Do you have trouble speaking up to your mental health providers? What have the results been when you do?
P.S. I know that what other people think of me is none of my business, but try telling that to me when I’m not doing so well, which seems to be a lot as of late.
