Why Do You Blog?
on Fri Sep 23, 2011 6:24 am
I was thinking about why I blog and what I am doing it for.
I think it is self centredly mainly for me. Since I was little I have kept a diary and I view blogging in a similar way. I write what is going on in my life and when I read it back later it reminds me of where i was at a certain point in my life.
I think that is why I am maybe more open than i should be - because I look on it like a diary. I know here is anonymous but I do sometimes wonder if I have said too much, but I also know I do have boundaries and there are somethings I would not say.
I also make myself do it even if I am feeling crap because I think it is important to capture how I was feeling at that time as well as when things are better.
Do I do it because ppl read it? To some extent yes and I am so grateful to anyone who reads the mundane drivel that comes out of my head. But I think I would still do it anyhow. But there must be something wonderful about the support i get from ppl here as it encourages me to keep going - so thank you.
So I am curious about you all. Why do you blog and why do you read ppls' blogs?
GMC - How It Went
on Sat Mar 10, 2012 10:56 am
So saw GMC guy yesterday
It was difficult. I saw him at the new place for the first time. It was where I was admitted this time a year ago after a big overdose. At the time I was on constant one to one obs and I this really triggered me yesterday. It made me want to cut and overdose so someone could look after my safety and I would not have to do it. I didnt - I was sensible and looked after myself but it was not easy. I did not think it was going to trigger me as much as it did - maybe it is because it is exactly a year ago.
The meeting went as well as it could I suppose. He said he thought I was doing well and we talked about spirituality a lot which was interesting. But he asked me again if I wanted to remove my name from the register voluntarily to which I said no. He said again it would be at least a year before RTW - he always seems to say that - when does this year start??? He was also talking about specialities and thinks I would be better doing something "less stressful". I love "stressful" stuff such as anaesthetics and acute medicine or cardiology and he seemed to think I would be better suited to something like psychiatry because he feels stress "triggers" me. I would sooner eat my own eyeballs than be a psychiatrist.
Anyhow it is over for another 2 months and I am intact (ish)
Hope you are all well

I am questioning my sexuality atm with good reason. It is a bit weird to be thinking about this in my 30s but I think I do need to think about it.

Rosie Bunny died earlier today and I laid her to rest. I am really sad but she is peaceful at least. Thank you for being so supportive.
