You know what? People are trying to help you. They are taking time from their lives to respond to you and find out how they can best support you, and all you do is rubbish them. Im done trying to help, as any comment i leave will only be met with derision from you. And again- you are not the first, or only person who has experienced total, blatant prejudice when it comes to mental health. You wont find answers while you channel your anger into bitterness. Ive tried to be helpful and constructive, and your responses are rude and self centred which is so unecessary.
Ah yes, apathy - that great solver to all of life's problems. You've been screwed over but don't fight it. Just go out there with your head held high and say "Howdy dodee I was wrongly sectioned under the Mental Health Act but I'm chipper even though it means I can't get a job for love nor money. Tra la-la la la..."
So I should be selfless about
this even though it's my life that has been messed with? How about
you go through what I've been through, get wrongly sectioned and treated like some social pariah even though you are innocent and then come back to me, because I guarantee you that until you are in that position you won't even know half the things I'm feeling now.
Have you actually thought that the blog was set up to highlight the corruption and poor manner in which the mental health trust was run? By the way, this is the same unit that saw a woman burned to death in a bathroom last year as well as a patient-doctor relationship and a consultant expelled for possession of child ****. And you're saying people should turn a blind eye to the corrupt manner in which they run themselves as a mental health trust?
Have you actually thought that I was trying to use my journalism skills to highlight this issue? That's the same journalism industry I can no longer get into because I have to tell every potential employer that I have been sectioned? I can't even interview schoolteachers now because I might pose a risk to the kids despite doing nothing wrong.
Must be alright for you though, you've got it all made. Your life doesn't revolved around CRB checks and clean bills of health. And before anyone pipes up with the 'explore other areas' line, please don't. I can't even get a job as a bloody binman. Equal Opportunities is alive and well in Britain in the 21st century. Fear not fellow headcases, a lifetime on the dole awaits.
Add to that the shambles of counselling I was recommended to go on because of this wrongful sectioning. What was I told? Oh yes - "You're not mentally ill so don't waste our ****** time coming here." When I told them that it was them who had sent me the appointment card, they said "**** off you Scouse ****". Oh yes, Mersey DO Care don't they
