"STEPPING UP FOR LIFE",program's for me;I hope it's not too late to start !22 May at 21:51 from atlas
SOONER RATHER THAN LATER;I USED TO DO IT BUT I GOT DISTRACTED,and now it maybe TOO LATE ?
I first met IAN STEVEN'S ,a Mental Health Nurse,after being referred to him by my GP DR ANDREW MACDONALD,of NORTH MITCHAM CLINIC,in DONVALE.
AS A PERSON WITH MULTIPLE IMPAIREMENTS ranging from depression ,bi polar affective disorder and Post traumatic Stress ,Dissorder,I was having much difficulty finding a suitable health profeesional that I felt comfortable with to discuss my many issues with.
My major difficulties related to PTSD,and the fact that I was having continual flashbacks and nightmares, of events going back to when I was a child,to the current time.
The cathartic experiences of being able to release and discuss what was happening or happened in the past and present has possibly given me an out to improve my quality of life.
The "STEPPING UP FOR LIFE",program appears to be the way out for me ;it is similar to another program I participated in some years ago,called "PEERS INSPIRING PEERS";both programs encourage you to sieze control of what you do,and how to make a fist of the future.
Well here am I singing praises of the "STEPPING UP TO LIFE",program,but I have yet to start "WALKING THE WALK,and then TALKING THE TALK"?,yes YOU ARE RIGHT<however I am not a journalist or reporter who siezes a pamhlet like the one attached,and scribbling a few words down for it to be published for THE SWEENEY FLATS POST NEWSPAPER.com.au,no I am the real MCCOY,trying to get back on track to hopefully save my life from a certain DEATH.
What has happened to me over the past 5 years has caused a system failure physically,mentally,and a total decline of my BRAIN POWER.
Over the past 6 weeks I have been admitted to hospital with one problem after another;from a CANCEROUS PROSTATE ,a SERIOUS FALL OFF A LADDER,which have resulted in more serious cognitive impairements from added to an existing ACQUIRED BRAIN INJURY;
Well as one of my Psychiatrists said to me after each consultation,PAUL,try try try again?
Well that is my agenda,sooner rather than later hopefully though if I pull thru all the necessary proceedures I have to partake in over the next few weeks.
Well,there are many steps in life,and if I am going to follow in the family tradition of living till I am over 90 years old,I HAD BETTER FOLLOW THE UROLIGISTS WAY OF DOING THINGS,which is ........?
PULL MY FINGERS OUT, and STEP UP TO LIFE.
PLEASE FOLLOW THE PROMPTS ON THE ATTACHMENT and STEP UP TO LIFE !
ATTENTION ALL----- TO DIFFERENTIATE BUT NOT DISCRIMINATE WE ENCOURAGE THOSE WITH MENTAL HEALTH ISSUES TO ATTEND THESE SESSIONS.but please those who care please GIVE THE HAVES A PUSH ALONG THE PATH TO RECOVEREY !
