Tribute to Mental Health Social Workers

Postby beach » Sun Nov 19, 2017 4:40 pm

Just wanted to pay tribute to the Mental Health Social Workers. I have never met a bad one yet. They are a class above the psychiatrist, the nurse manager, and the community mental health nurse, in terms of having our best interests at heart. Thankyou, thank you, thank you. Beach x

Hi Beach good to hear from you and good to know you are getting the help you deserve. I agree by the way, by and large they are caring people who do a tremendous job.

I was wondering how do you know you have a mental health social worker, I'm due an assessment son from children's social care social workers, for my mental health and I guess to see how I'm coping with my daughter as she's the youngest. Wondering if this will be mental health social worker or normal.

Well, you have to really push to make it happen. And then get as much as you can from it while it lasts.

You know the really really scared thing here.... I was looking through posts and saw this one, and even though it was only written a couple of days ago. I can't remember writing it. At all.

I am conversing with people perhaps 10-20 minutes a week most weeks. Sometimes I see a social worker or a con for an hour. That has been my life for the past 7 years whilst I haven't been able to work etc.

I am a familiar sight now, in the local town, talking to myself. Public soliloquies. I feel hollowed out.

I pick myself up each time. But I feel like a fly in a spiders web. I have seen and 'understood' so many frightening things when this reality has disappeared, over the years. I can't wipe these from my mind anymore.

I used to have faith, hope, belief, trust.

Sorry for the nature of this post. I can't believe I posted that on Sunday and have absolutely NO recollection of it.

Yeah, good point Team :), just had a bad couple of hours, bit of self pity creeping in! In bed now, early night. Should be back fighting fit tomorrow, time to get the bike out and materialise some endorphins.
