This is a ridiculous decision made, partly, on the basis of some warped economic rationalism. Last time I checked, you can’t tell someone how long to take getting better from cancer, then how come you get to tell me how long it should take to get over my mental illness? If I could talk to the PM, I would ask her to listen to *ALL* the evidence and to hear some of your stories. I’m really afraid for us. For my more vulnerable mentals out there. The ones who slip through cracks. <insert longsigh.mp4>
I told one of my friends that if anything happened to her, I would avenge her by suing everyone. Another friend who was in a acute depressive phase of his Bipolar (It took him FOUR YEARS to get the DSP for chronic Bipolar 1) He couldn’t afford to have therapy with a reasonable psychiatrist. In fact his first experience with the psychiatric system of mental health was traumatising…so ACE! *HEAD DESK*
Anyway kids, it’s getting late here and It’s meds o’clock for me.
Please, if you have a mental illness or don’t. Support the Alliance and write to the pollies. Spread the word that they want to attack the most vulnerable people.
