My problem is that I am SO passionate about ALL of the above issues and although my loyalty must lie with my primary quest to establish the infrastructure of psychological support, in the hope that many may consequently be prevented from experiencing any long term psychological issues of mental health conditions, such as PTSD and depression- I can not help but have a deep desire to make a difference in the access and diversity discrimination departments also.
I only wish that I had a fully working model of a body and mind, whilst also being blessed with an extra 18hrs in each day perhaps to boost! My frustration often consumes me- I simply want to tackle it all!!
From my recent consultations with an experienced psychologist, I finally have a validated and reinforced belief that what I am intending to do is going to be beneficial in preventing the above conditions.
I have received countless correspondences from those sharing mutual experiences of mine- (for which I am eternally grateful to you all and I assure you I am gradually working my way through replying to you ASAP) and I have also received encouragement from those in positions of esteemed power and knowledge, who believe that if my plans come to fruition, that they will make much needed improvement and help for those currently becoming disabled and being fixed up physically, yet sadly receiving nothing for the emotional fallout of such and circumstances.
Despite these encouragements, the fierce feelings of insecurity and anxiety that exist deep in the pit of my stomach, can not help but worry about whether I am truly on the right road?
As an evolving community that I have already received so many insights and ideas from, I once more ask you for your advice as to any deviations from this road/quest that you believe would be beneficial for me to take.
· What really gets you fired up and frustrated?
· Have any of you received any psychological support along your road to recovery and acceptance of your fate?
· What do you deeply desire to be in place in terms of access, emotional care and image improvement for those with disabilities?
As a constantly soul searching woman of strong Christian faith, I believe that I have experienced becoming disabled for a reason- as such, I endeavour to bring about these positive changes that I believe should already be in place.
Unless I am advised otherwise by you, I intend to continue to travel along this one straight road to the improvement of support for those who so desperately need it.
The support that I have so far received from those of you who have kindly taken the time to write to me through Twitter, Facebook or my blog page direct, is the thing that is making me smile today.
Thank you so much to you all. I assure you that I will respond to your kind correspondence individually ASAP.
Until tomorrow folks. Have a peaceful night and a peaceful, yet productive 23rd September 2011.
Face your fears and endeavour to make every day count if you are able.
