Saw the MH nurse at doctors today, he was excellent, increased one of my meds that had been reduced last year and we had a good chat, got to see him again in around 4 weeks.
Feeling more positive than I have for ages.

2024 Election won

    That's great to hear @woodbine. I find it makes all the difference getting someone who you get on with. Especially with mental health, with physical stuff they just have a job to do so doesn't matter quite as much but with MH you really need someone who is amicable and understands you. I'm glad you are feeling up today

    That is good to hear @woodbine - so pleased that an understanding MH nurse has made things feel more positive :)
    So sorry @letitbe - whether it's a Dr or nurse, I can't understand how they can help if they first don't listen.

    Really glad to hear things are looking more positive for you @woodbine, I'm really happy for you. :) 

    I can totally understand @letitbe, having the right nurse can make a world of difference.  I hope you can talk to your nurse and get that sorted out quickly.
