You havn’t been listening to me – you are obsessed with this idea that we are individuals and don’t need other people – which is grossly untrue. I’ve met three GOOD health professionals in 17 years, all of them were completely committed to supporting the person to heal in the way they needed to. That is what Occupational Therapy is all about. And I will again say THERE IS NO HEALING WHILE THE PERSON IS LIVING IN FEAR WITHOUT THE BASIC NECESSITIES OF LIFE LIKE SHELTER AND FOOD SECURITY. Which currently is 20% of the NZ population 1 million people – mostly women and youth. Gee and NZ has highest OECD stats in youth suicide and women self-harming – go figure.
Also, what might apply to a man DOES NOT APPLY TO A WOMAN, especially in the domain of trauma. Men have to be self-reliant in more ways, although they still need ‘brothers’ – women are different we are NATURALLY reliant on men for safety and others for talking our problems through. I don’t have a man for protection and my female friends are themselves so traumatised they can’t handle me talking about my fear of police and compulsory incarceration under mental health act FOR TELLING THE FKN TRUTH AND ASKING FOR HEALTH CARE I AM ENTITLED TO.
Mental health workers are bunch of self-righteous power tripping either psychopaths or co-dependents – mostly idiot Christians and deeply depressed people with revolting personalities that nobody would be friends with so they get into that line of work for the ego boost. That is why I have so many problems with mental health services who genuinely HATE me and discredit me in the community cause I criticise them for making my region No 1 in NZ for suicide. I’m intelligent, I understand my disorder, I know the law and rehab, I know how they are supposed to behave and when they do it wrong, I know the science, I know politics. I can see straight through an abuser or a co-dependent CLINGON.
I agree with your sentiment but you’re just not understanding what we are both suggesting is essentially the same thing, I just know more of the jargon. I studied Health 101 and rehab at Massey University for a year by correspondence. When told to read a chapter I read the book plus I got out every book I could on trauma and studied that far beyond 1st year level. I learnt their jargon, I learnt their models – that’s where I discovered Mason Durie and Whare Tapa Wha. I become highly suicidal at the end and could not continue my area of study – BECAUSE I KNEW THEY WERE NOT APPLYING ANY OF THESE THINGS IN THE AREA OF HEALTH FOR MENTALLY INJURED ABUSE/TRAUMA/NEGLECT VICTIMS – it made me more unwell knowing this. Although the jargon I learnt taught me how to interact with them using their language and proves without doubt in the area of Complex PTSD they are persecuting people purposely – we are the new Jew.
Was researching new Suicide Prevention maggot in Wairarapa, he has made completely inaccurate statements for years that mentally ill people are not violent or dangerous – WTF. One of the symptoms of Complex PTSD is violence according to all scientific literature I have ever read!!! Govt and police and MH know it as well. They study same books/information I do. This ignorant bigot started his new job by putting even more propaganda in the local free newspaper and other media – the same organisations that dont’ work for 80% of us because they are filled with issue ridden psychopaths and co-dependents, as I said before. Combine that with the regular meetings they all have with mayors, local ‘social’ business leaders, MH services and police of course – so they all think the same BS – and I know my name comes up regularly.
