#058 – Psychiatric Admission – Day 16

I wonder if I’ll ever get better? I look back over the last 15 years and I don’t feel like I’ve made any progress over this time. I’ve tried every medication under the sun, spent hours talking to psychiatrists and been hospitalised so many times I’ve lost count… and for what!?

I wanted to talk to him about going on CBD medication like he had previously discussed but I was toldContinue reading “#031 – Psychiatric Admission – Day 7”
