Lately I have discovered that I am an inspiration to other people who are dealing with mental illness I’m not sure if that is a good thing or a bad thing
In Australia atm there is a push to put ppl into categories. This means that the ppl who ‘apparently’ need the most assistance will get funding to support their mental health issues.
Unfortunately, there is a massive deficit as many people do not qualify for assistance, I fall into this category. My option is to get a job servicing this new service. So do I aggravate my own mental health by assessing others? Or do I continue on living on the outskirts of the mental health system?
It frightens me that I am just a statistic. This is something I have dealt with for most of my life Yet here I am apparently supposed to be a mentor for others. When will mental illness be taken seriously by the powers that be? The worst thing is I also have a physical disability and that isn’t recognised either.
I’m tired of fighting I’m tired of being in pain and frankly I’m tired of being under the poverty line!
I actually don’t know what more to say but I hope that someone understands what the hell I’m on about. Being mentally and physically ill is exhausting and, frankly, I think I’ve had enough!
I found a little beetle, so that beetle was his name, and I called him Alexander and he answered just the same. I put him in a matchbox, and I kept him all the day…..
And nanny let my beetle out – yes nanny let my beetle out – she went and let my beetle out – and beetle ran away.
She said she didn’t mean it, and I never said she did, she said she wanted matches and she just took off the lid, she said that she was sorry, but it’s difficult to catch an excited sort of beetle you’ve mistaken for a match.
