I came home from uni today, and I had a discussion with my family. I am going to leave uni studies. A family friend is a coordinator at an employment agency for people with disabilities, and people like me, with mental health issues, qualify. In addition to this, I have been seeing my psychiatrist every 2 weeks, and I have an appointment on Tuesday.
I was discussing with my psychiatrist last session whether it would be appropriate for me to be on the disabilities pension, but that route may not have to be taken if I am able to get some kind of non-stressful work through this employment agency.
It’s bizarre having mental health issues—I present as quite functional to the casual observer, but I suppose as you get to know me, the fact I can be very paranoid and depressed becomes quite apparent. I am also very high functioning; one of my favourite things to do is write to you all here on the fediverse.
I just wanted to fill in all my close friends here, to let you all know that I am safe, even though I am not well. I have an action plan. I am sure life will get better (:
