This is a Really Real Mental Health Post.
Is it just me, or does this shit suck?
I’m well aware that it isn’t just me.
But I think the universe is telling us to slow down. To focus on what matters. To help each other out.
That’s what it’s going to take to get us through this.
And I’m seeing a whole lot of good. Teachers that are offering to help parents who are suddenly homeschoolers, friends who are spreading loving words, people who are offering food to those who may not have it, others who are offering to get food for those who are sick.
This shit sucks.
And we’re all feeling it.
Today I found out my mental health team basically fell apart. I won’t have any sort of therapy for the foreseeable future. My psychiatrist hasn’t returned my phone calls for the past week.
I’m trying not to panic.
I’m trying to remember that I’ve been through worse, even though it’s been nothing like this.
I’m not sure anything compares to this.
I’m not sure anything ever will.
But one day at a time, we’ll get through this. And I’ll survive a few weeks without therapy. Eventually I’ll get a hold of someone (my pdoc or my regular doc) who will write my psych meds.
Eventually this will pass.
It may pass like a kidney stone, but it will pass.
