Antidote to a crappy day

Oh shitty crap poo, I had a terrible meeting with my new psychiatrist today and it has me all shook up. One thing I will say to anyone who is seeing mental health professionals - take someone with you who knows your story and can talk for you when things get all messed up in your head.

It really has upset me. I know that a SHO is given a file and told to go see patient 'x' but I would at least have hoped that that person would have read a little more than the most recent letter in your notes and know what blasted name to call you! Honestly I thought a little bit of research would be needed before you spoke to someone in that situation - you are dealing with someones mental well being!

Anyway, it's over now and the next time will be better. As for my ruined day, well I have the antidote....

and looking at the Vegetable Seeds UK website and wondering what I shall spend my gift voucher on. Oh temptation, temptation.... Check them out, there is a link in the side bar :)

Good health to you all and enjoy your weekend friends xxxx

P.S. I am in the market for a fab new blog to read so any recommendations, send them my way!


  1. how about a Canadian?

  2. Some of those counsellors/psychiatrists do more harm than good!

    It'a always good to find a new blog - is it a gardening one you are looking for? - I tend to visit the blogroll of my favourite blogs and pick some up from there. I also have a watch list of blogs that are new to me. I watch them for a while to see whether they keep going and post regularly and then decide whether to follow them or not.

  3. Thanks Diana - most of my family is Canadian so yep, I shall have a wee look ;) xxxx

    Sue ~ it's scary the power they have and how they can unintentionally make you feel worse. As for the blog, I am looking for anything, doesn't have to gardening, I read a lot of photography and art ones too :)

    Hugs to you both xxxxxx

  4. Thinking of you, take care. Flighty xx

  5. Ooh, Nothing like riffling through a good seed site to lift the spirits! :-)

  6. If you're up for reading, I'd recommend Linda in Houston, TX (blog here: She has a way of weaving her stories that makes for lovely reading. Hope things improve with your new psych. person. I'm so sorry it was such a rough beginning.

  7. Those trick cyclists really can mess things up, thoughtless! Have a look at one of the blogs on my sidebar, Potager Y. Brilliant photos of his allotment.
