Now that the bathroom palava seems to be at an end, I can focus a little on the garden. Need to get some bedding plants, how long have I been saying that? Just not been in the mood, and the bathroom saga really got me down. The black dog has been following me around a lot lately. I heard someone refer to depression/anxiety as a mental injury, and they were right. That is exactly what it is, something is broken, and it has to be treated, but treated properly. They've now come up with a blood test that can help with the diagnosis and also what type of anti depressant you need. If that really is the case then that will stop a lot of unnecessary suffering. At the moment finding the right anti depressant is a lottery, your GP will go for what he/she has always used, you get told it takes a few weeks to kick in. So after a few weeks and you feel no better he/she ups the dose, you wait again, still no relief, no counselling cos there is a bloody long waiting list. Back you go, doc says try this anti depressant, usually the cheapest, see if that one works. And so on and so forth. You can wait years to see someone who knows what they are talking about and can prescribe the right antidepressants, during all of that time you cope as best you can, only some don't cope.
Fed up of this EU stuff, seems like nothing else matters. As for the shambles on the vote registration page, er why did so many leave it so late to register? We had local elections recently, so clearly many felt no compulsion to exercise their francise then. I may have said, but my first ever vote was the first referendum on the then EEC, and I've voted in every election since. I did miss a few local elections because of my army service, but I have always exercised my right to vote. What I have found very illuminating about all this EU stuff, or the mud slinging, is that we now know that we were all lied to during the last election by the Tories, they never had any intention of getting immigration down, cos they knew they couldn't. Oh and more come to this country from outside the EU, and I ain't talking about refugees.
Think I need to get out tomorrow, going a bit stir crazy. Nope, no mention of that final, just think Mr Murray let his opponent off the hook, hope he has learned that lesson once and for all. Wimbers in a couple of weeks, some tennis from Eastbourne, then Queens before the All England. Now off for a much needed cuppa.
Thanks for stopping by.
