Normal service will be resumed as soon as possible

I have had, what used to be described as a nervous breakdown. I find the term quite apt, much more descriptive than “mental health issues” which seems to me to avoid any hint of pain. My very lovely psych team are attempting to sort my brain out but it seems to be taking longer than expected. It’s taken me many months even to be able to post this. Hopefully I will get back on track eventually.

I could just keep quiet because I really don’t want to seem like I’m making a fuss or seeking sympathy but equally, breakdowns and mental illness should be talked about. My psych dudes are excellent, unfortunately it’s not like the common cold or even the flu and it can’t be remedied by a few kind words. They are convinced that it can be remedied though, and I trust them.

  1. Just found your blog and Spock’s Sister Sees. They are wonderful. I hope you feel better soon, whether you get back to them or not. Good luck!

    1. Thank you so much! I am now starting to recover, it has been a year since the breakdown so a slow recovery. In the couple of months I have started to get back into my microscopes and restoration. I’m really enjoying it again so i should start to post more frequently again.
