Venting My Frustrations.

Now I'm usually very supportive of the NHS but right now, I find myself seriously frustrated.

The mental health service provided by the National Health Service is absolutely pathetic.
Apparently mental health is top of the government's priorities but for some reason, that doesn't seem the case to me.

I have been suffering since about 15/16 with anxiety, depression and other things (as I have mentioned before) and when I finally reached out for help, I was so stupidly naive.
I thought that people would be helpful and that I would get assisted in my journey to recovery.

I filled in a form for Personal Independence Payment expecting my claim to be dealt with and everything would be hunky dory...How wrong was I.

My claim went through to ATOS Healthcare in May and here I am nearing the end of November with nothing. Not even a letter or email to keep me updated.
It is no wonder people slip through the net and become just another statistic because right now,
I am feeling pretty hopeless and stressed at the moment.

The sad part is I am just one in a long line of people suffering the same thing and having the same problems.
Why isn't anyone helping us?
How long do we have to wait for help and support?

It's hard enough to get out of bed in the morning let alone worrying about finances and getting through the day...It shouldn't be this difficult.

Apologies for my little rant there but I just had to say something before I exploded.

Thanks for reading
