Xx Sometimes we all have to go a little crazy just to stay sane xX
I've discussed this topic (but about mental health in general) with my best friend who works in the medical field. She's been with me since I first got ill again and it's something she see's everyday. People getting hospital beds and free doctors who don't want the help and people like me who are begging for help because we want to get better and need a bit of support now and again get pushed aside.
There's a major shortage of public beds in Sydney and even being suicidial doesn't guarentee you'll get help. Yet she's seen others in beds that don't belong there. One young guy I was in hospital with was in there to increase his effexor from 37 to 75mg a starting dose and he said to me he was going to start play acting a bit as he liked it in hospital and didn't want to go to uni or work.
I was like you're 20yrs old, you should want to be beating this illness while you've got no one responsible on you, get well and go and enjoy life.
