Changes 2016



I am sitting at my new little desk, looking out over the lake
while contemplating some important decisions regarding my future.
With the beginning of the new year I was able to make some changes
in my heath care. My parents offered to pay if I found help outside of
the local psychiatric system (which has broken down completely now).

I think for the first time I may have found people who actually understand.
It's scary as shit, that shiny sliver of hope dangling in front of me.
My new therapist and doctor both think I should be put on sick-leave.
Since I've been out of a job for a while I may not qualify for benefits,
but it's an avenue I have decided to pursue.

Who knows, maybe 2016 is the year I finally start to heal?

  1. Ja det är helt otroligt att du har kämpat på med både jobb o studier samtidigt. Se till att få försäkringskassan med på tåget också.

    1. Jag skickar in min anmälan så fort jag fått intyget från min läkare - sedan är det bara att hålla tummarna.

    1. Don't worry about it, we can't be experts at everything :)

  10. This is good news, it would probably help you to get some payments and not have to worry about things as much, and focus on your health rather than everything. It is true it is hard to get good mental health care. Let's hope this works out for you!

    1. Therapy will be around 500 AUD a month, so it helps alot that my parents are paying. Thank you for your well wishes!

  12. Have you been looking for a job again? I agree, it's a good idea to put all the daily stress aside and focus on your health for a while. I hope this new doctor will be able to help. ^^

    1. Not really, I applied half-heartedly to one job, but mostly I've been feeling really lost, not knowing what to do. I hope to figure some things out this spring.

    1. Thank you, dearest!
      Did you get my letter/package yet? I haven't forgotten about the licorice :)

      Radera
    2. Actually, I haven't! And someone has been home everyday for the past two weeks during mail time. Is it small enough to go through a mail slot?

      Radera
    3. Yes, but to be fair it usually takes 3 weeks for anything to reach the States, and I sent it on the 27th.

      Radera
    4. Ah, ok ... yup, it won't be here just yet. :) MUAH!
