I just don’t understand the nurse that I talk to at group. We are supposed to talk at least once a week. It mostly happens, but at the same time they often act like they are too busy for me. It’s not me thinking I can read minds, it’s the actions that tell me I’m not their priority.
I don’t expect to be prioritised above other people, because we’re all equals. I mean unless I was in a crisis and the other was fine. I understand that they have other parts to their job, but they also need to think about the fact that they are working in mental health. They can’t just brush people off.
It doesn’t actually affect me much , because I go to councelling. But if I wasn’t I would likely be quite reliant on that contact.
I think doctors are aware that sometimes they have to spend longer on a patient and that might meant they don’t get a lunch break, nurses are in a similar boat.
I won’t be mad if you eat in front of me, in fact I would have more respect.
