Sorry It’s Been So Long

Dear Reader,

So it really has been quite a while since my last post, and I think its been good for me. You see a lot has happened, good, bad etc. But it means that I finally feel I have something useful and interesting to say to you all. So I’ll be gradually telling you about my last few weeks, over the next few posts.

I Need Some Advice

Dear Reader,

In 5 days time I will be attending my first mental health appointment at the hospital.
I’m not really sure what to expect, but I assume it will be some kind of assessment.

So here’s the thing. I know a lot of my readers have had these appointments, I know a lot of my readers probably have a better grasp of what is about to happen and I really need some help.

In my letter it says to take my medication. So I will do that.

But my question is what else should I take? What would be useful? 

Should I write down the symptoms of my possible manic episode? What possible triggered it?

I have kept a mood diary for the last month I will take that.

Is there anything else I should take? 

Should I make a list of questions? What should I ask?

Any advice is much appreciated. 

I will do my best to write a post the day before the appointment. But if not. I will see you all on the flip side of it.

I want to thank all of my readers for sticking with me, for commenting and helping me on my journey. I have come to a pretty big place in my journey that I wouldn’t have been able to get to without your support. So sincerely, from the bottom of my heart. Thank you.

As always,

The Elephant in the Room
