Hi everyone, I’m back again. I hope everyone is doing well, or if not, I hope things get better for you.
I just wanted you all to know that I am generally doing much better these days, and I’m happy to be able to say that my medications are FINALLY working. It hasn’t been an easy road to get to this point though. Although 2017 and so far, 2018, have been much better years, 2016 was a really difficult year for me (And my parents). I was hospitalized again for severe OCD/Tourette’s, and this time I was in the hospital for 82 days! It was horrible. 🙁 I don’t want to get into the details, but I am from Canada, and even with our Universal Healthcare, our Mental Healthcare system is broken. I was admitted on October 15th, 2016, and finally got released to go home on January 5th, 2017. That’s longer than I’ve ever been hospitalized before.
On the bright side of things, I’m doing much better overall, and I’ve even been involved with some volunteering last year and am working with a Job Organization for people with Disabilities (Including Mental Health issues) to help me get a job. And I have also noticed that I am not as angry as I was before most of the time, because I am doing well. When I’m feeling better, I tend to be less angry and depressed. In fact, if I am to be totally honest, I think the name “Angry_Atheist” would be better replaced with something like “Puzzled_Agnostic” or something like that.
And one other thing: I will never complain about help again. Especially now that I realize that everyone on this board needs help, including myself. Just so you know, when I complained about helping people, it wasn’t really helping people that I was against. It was just me angrily venting off my feelings that people will judge me if I can’t help them because I lose control in whatever way (Like emotionally, physically, mentally, basically when there’s nothing I can do to remedy the situation). Anyway, help came to me about a month ago, when there was a huge leak in my Basement Apartment. I had to text my parents about it, ’cause they were on vacation in Florida at the time, so they called my brother and asked him to come over and help me fix the leak. And he did, thankfully. I love him so much, he’s such a great guy. 🙂
And I’ll leave it on that note. Happy New Year everyone! I sincerely wish that this will be a good year for everyone.
Thanks for taking the time to read my message.
