This piece of paper was what I was given as I left the psychiatrists appointment room that day in January this year, feeling deflated, suicidal, defeated, crushed & unable to pick myself up.

Drink plenty of water, maybe a couple of paracetamol, some fresh air & have… Continue reading Illness, anxiety and loss of trust in the medical professionals
