I was sitting around today and my phone rang.
I picked it up and it was a social worker from when I had my last stay in the hospital on Jan 31. She was calling to see how I was doing...and if I NEEDED anything. I was surprised.
We talked for about 1/2 an hour...she listened to all my stress..all my upcoming appointments...She was very happy that I have requested my therapist to do drug/alcohol testing...to keep me honest...and to support my disability claim (I want to have something on file that proves I am not ingesting alcohol).
I asked what types of things would I need from her? She gave me examples..such as if I am having problems personal...or having problems locating Drs...or need something that the Drs can't provide...like medication...or questions on insurance...etc...
I'm doing well. But, I have to say that the way I was treated in hospital and the way I continue to be treated by Drs and Psychiatric staff...is a big component as to why I have done so well this time. Its nice to feel cared for....
So anyone that is struggling with healthcare and understanding...just know there are people out there that do care. And I think the UK will catch up someday...there has been alot on the news...about alcohol and drug use...and Drs. learning that if they don't start understanding...things will get worse .
