They should pin a metal on us for Recovery

no thanks, or welcome back too reality , no metal of honor, and if your real lucky oh f*ck off and die. if the real world cared we would not get throned to the wolfs. no we should get a pin of recovery given to us,.in honor of are good manner of bravery and judgement. don’t you think.


I have learned since i got out of hospital almost 8 + half years ago i have had next to no support from local mental health service,social workers(never had one/offered one) or really any finacial support from my Govt.I have been left to fend for myself.working etc when i wasn’t well enough/didn’t want to do that particular job.But it is something iam used to know and luckily iam stable enough to run my own business and take care of myself.

I agree. Like I’m fond of saying : “The more help you need the less you get AND the less help you need the more you get”

Except I’ve been fortunate in my experience I used to get a lot of help when I needed it. Now my pdoc is just like “don’t come back here unless u need meds” not in those words but yeah.

Sorry you’ve had a bad experience with this. I guess my pdoc is pretty good if he doesn’t do this.

I’ve heard you say this a lot I think it’s sometimes true.

Nobody will give you a medal for restoring yourself to normalcy. If they did everyone who was normal would expect to have one and the medal would be cheapened somewhat. Congratulations anyway.

My mom gave me a hug the other day for trying. That’s enough for me.
