The mental health people seem to be gradually doing things, which is good. They appear to need to work on their efficiency, however, they are being helpful so I shouldn’t complain too much. I am seeing them again in two days, I really need to work on my communication. I can communicate well, but I’m not very consistent there is a large range of my communication abilities that seem to be dependent on the day. Some days I don’t really seem to be present in the room, and hence I am not very good at communicating to the other person in that room.
I feel really bored at the moment, my life is just, sleep, food, exercise, some TV, and very occasionally I may socialise. I am also Irritable, I’m not 100% sure if that’s a symptom or if I am just surrounded by annoying people. My sleeping pattern is not how I like it, it is probably how most people want it. I go to bed early and wake up early, but I don’t like doing that, especially when I am not working. I do want to work, but my previous experience does put me off a tad. Plus I feel so tired all the time…
People like to focus on themselves, this can be good and bad. It always seems that when you think people won’t notice, they deviate away from their self-absorbed nature. Other times you wait for people to notice, but they never do.
Mental health people are being a tad shit at the moment, mostly as they say they are going to do stuff and it doesn’t seem to be happening. Everything is just so delayed, and there is no attempt to minimize wait times. I’m fine with waiting, I just don’t like the time it takes for the person to remember to refer me added to the wait time.
I’m currently in a place where I can’t tell if I am getting better or worse, my insight isn’t great at present. My sleep is getting worse which is annoying. I have kind of established a routine. I am having a two-week break between counseling appointments which I am not sure is a good idea. I am debating whether to go to the GP as I am not seeing the psychiatrist for another 5 weeks and saw him last about 5 weeks ago. I was supposed to see him after 6 weeks, but wait times…. If I am to go to the GP I need to construct my thoughts so that I don’t just sit there like, “Hi, I thought I should see a Dr”.
I could as to see the occupational therapist, I don’t really have much to say to her, but at least it’s free.
About a week and a half ago I went to the psychiatrist, it went pretty well which was good because. My counsellor decided to be a bitch the week before that. This past week I have been working, it has been going pretty well. I will only be working for two weeks. I don’t think I have the motivation to work for any longer than that. I really just want it over with.
I have had two counseling appointments in the past two weeks. In the last one, I got the lecture about needing to contribute more. I am not very good when I am put on the spot so that just made me shut off and we got no further in the appointment. I don’t understand why people expect me to tell them my life story when I have met them once. Anyway, I wrote about three pages of shit to give them next time so I don’t get accused of not trying. Because people like to come to that conclusion, they don’t want to admit they might not be performing their job up to scratch and I guess go on the defense.
I don’t know what I am supposed to expect from others, it like if I expect too much from people then that’s wrong. But if I let them treat me like shit then that is also wrong. They tell you to ask for what you need but if I knew the solution then I wouldn’t be in this situation. It’s as if expecting other people to think for themselves is expecting too much from them.
But I guess what can be learned is to expect nothing from anyone, but also don’t let them ignore you and treat you like shit?
Sometimes you just want to be left alone. But people want to be nice, helpful. But they don’t understand the whole situation, so they’re not helpful. I don’t feel like explaining everything, I just want people to not but into my life.
I’m seeing a new psychiatrist next week. Not because I was listened to, but because I moved. I have pretty low expectations. They did make an effort to give me extra notice about the appointment, which is very good communication from my experience. I tend to not be informed of things.
I haven’t written anything in a while, I have made a whole heap of major decisions very suddenly. I also have not informed a lot of people about these decisions. But it’s my life so it’s not really for them to know. There are still a lot of decisions still to make. But overall I have decided to take my time over these decisions. Figure out what I really want. not just guess what I will want in the future.
There is always so much pressure to rush, people seem to not be able to think more than a month in advance. Well, they are either doing that or thinking 5 years into the future. There is no middle ground. Sometimes if you slow down you will end up being further ahead in the long run. But others don’t seem to be able to comprehend this concept.
I also want to take time to think about what I want from other people. Because you need to ask for what you want for anything to happen. Because surprisingly other people don’t have their lives together enough to be useful on their own. People are so self-focused, most people aren’t capable of true empathy. Rather this fake bullshit which if you talk to them long enough you realise they have no idea. It’s all just fake emotions.
I think this lack of empathy is a result of societies views on expressing emotion. we are all expected to not display or talk about any unpleasant emotions. So all people know to do is the fake smile. If you dare to express unpleasant emotion to others, you will find you get the minimum response that is polite. They won’t ignore it, that would be rude. They just change the topic as fast as possible or try to exit the conversation as fast as possible.
In conclusion, I really need to find a decent therapist as I have a lot of people to bitch about. It’s also a bonus if you bitch about people in a confidential environment.
