I've been quiet for a couple of weeks because I've had the luxury of time off, something you might not get for another couple of months. I guess the good news is that break does help - often a lot, so I'm crossing my finger it comes off in April as planned.
Sorry about your foot -how did you manage that?
The bed -a win from NDIS many would simply not believe - will sort out I'm sure, a question of adjusting position and bed clothes, pillows etc until it is good for you. With the sleep that's another thing. My wife does not like air conditioning so I use a fan just on me, maybe something like that can help. I even find the sound lulling.
Reacting to every little thing is pretty normal in your situation, unpleasant, but please don't take the next step and feel less of your self as a result, that's simply undeserved.
A psychiatrist that allows big gaps for whatever reason is basically unsatisfactory, and frankly I've not found psychologists a good all-round substitute. What are you feelings about a locum?
Ta for saying I'm strong, yup, I'm often mistaken for Arnie.
