Hey everyone, how are you?
I am back home after being taken into The Haven for assessment.
Today, I am just going to take the advice I have been given and take it slow and rest. This means that I will just be chilling and taking better care of myself. Rather than rushing around and going back to doing a thousand things at once. Although burnout was not the reason for my admission into the unit, it was commented on how busy I am. So, I am only going to read and drum throughout the day, as these are things that help me to relax. And although I want to write, I don’t want to throw myself into it and undo the work that has been done over the last twenty four hours. Whilst I was in The Haven, I had a lot of time to think and I think that it helped me to put some things into perspective.
I do have a care and safety plan and can refer myself back within the next twenty four hours if I feel it’s necessary. Although, at the moment I do not think that will be necessary. The key will be getting through forty eight to seventy two hours as that is how long it was between my two admissions. There are some things in my care plan that I am going to have to work on but there are also some positives. But a lot of it will depend on the situation with Coronavirus. Also, I will have a phone call from the emergency mental health service to check in and also a call from my lead practitioner. It will be interesting to see what they think of everything. I have been told that they have all been concerned as this has been so out of the ordinary. Yesterday, whilst in The Haven, I spoke to my doctor. He had spoken to my lead practitioner and knew I was there. We had a good chat and he is going to call again next week.
So overall, it will be a chilled day with phone calls from mental health professionals. I am hoping that I will have slept well as I was very tired when I got home. I slept the night in The Haven because they gave me some sleeping tablets, it was part of the deal for me to be there. So, I am hesitant to take any tonight. I think I will just have to see how I am feeling when it comes to bed time. If I have to take them then I have to take them.
Thank you for reading and I hope that you have a good day.
