a psychiatric nurse working for the dwp will put a different spin on things than someone working for mental health services it's a different job with different requirements for holding it down
But either way, it was validating that a cpn, wherever he works, acknowledged the above difficulties in addition to illness. He should be saying i am fit for work, but he accepted my point, and added more of his own.

it was validating but i still think he'd be less likely to do that if he was working for mental health services directly

he should be saying your fit for work what if your benefits are cut and your unable to find a job that could support you, my issue

My issue also. I would not be able to fully support myself, just partly, some of the time. I don't think the doctors and cpn's quite understand that. This one was on the right track but didn't fully understand. I don't like having to be the one to tell them like it is for many of us.

If at mdt i don't know how it works. They say in recovery or remission, and that that is only a % reduction in symptoms, or stable on medication, or. I don't understand the line but when they say in remission, they don't mean well and ready to go back to work. This is a friend's ex-cpn husband. He says recovery is a % reduction, not all well and great and ready to hit the world of work. He says there is no such this as back to normal. No such thing as cured. Cured is all he talked about, how wrong that word is with mental health.

A psychiatrist friend of a friend that i have not met, said he felt very sorry for the people who had to work now and who did not have spouse to support them financially or for people without sick pension. He did not think we were all able to work and was not happy we have to go through assessments and be sedated for the duration. The new generation of psychiatrists, who knows what their opinions will be.

Moments of peace for me are having my four dogs-watching my chickens run around free outside looking in the window at me-having the brightness of moon touch my soul-taking care of my birds and turtles.
On the flip side my dogs are a rowdy bunch, my chickens get killed by Hawks and raccoons, and the moon is not always out at night. I barely care for my birds and turtle.

So I guess I am in between all these crap.

i had the idea i was stabilised on drugs and whilst i took the drugs normal fit for work pushed like brain washing in this hostel decades ago, when i argued it was a symptom to be treated

now i'm facing the work capability assessment and need to prove illness, i have learnt the on drug cure isn't cure the hard way and now are elderly with a long out of work history, partly due to my illness been considered unfit for work until recently

i think the risk of suicide in young schitzos jutifys in doctors minds them building up unreasonable hopes

anyway as the homeless women said theres a cognitive dissonance and i'd say a massive one at that
