27th July, I’ll be in Edinburgh till the 29th.  On the 28th, I’ll be in town all day, and I’m happy to meet up with people – just let me know when you’re free (as it’s Thursday night, I think Starbucks on Princes Street is open late – so we can meet there?).

I’ve got some family visits to make during the day – but I’ll be around, I think from about 3pm or so till late.  Would love to see everyone if posible 🙂

(For those of you not aware because you’re either new to the feed or missed it when I moved,  I’m a Scottish lass – I live about 6 hours south of there right now – all our family is in Edinburgh, bar my brother.  So we travel home several times a year – this time  I’m doing on my own, dropping off the kids and spending some time on my own in Edi, before travelling to Newcastle to overnight with my adopted sister – then coming home on the Saturday).

Basically, if you’re in Edinburgh, and know me well enough to say ‘hello’ or live in Edinburgh and wanna see me  then please get in touch and we can organise something.  I know one day is pretty crap to fit everything in, especially if you’re not available on Thursday, but the visit is really quite short.  We’re hoping to be up longer at xmas, though we’re not sure right now.  I’ll have my book with me to show off 😉 (on my Kindle probably !)

P is for Psychosis #realmentalhealth #mondayblogs #nomorestigma

This is one of my harder blog posts to write, because though I talk – a lot – about the impact my mental health has on my day to day life, and has done for a while, I’m pretty sure that this is the bit no one really understands, causes the most…misunderstanding and I hope, because I wouldn’t wish it on anyone, they can’t relate to. If you didn’t know that psychosis was a feature of my mental health diagnosis, or didn’t understand if you’d heard it mentioned before now, please…don’t start changing your opinion of me. That’s the biggest reason those of us with serious mental health issues aren’t as open as society needs. Because we lose people.
