It amazes me to think that two years ago, I was a well respected mental health/palliative care nurse in the local community.

I have since;

Left my job.
Been homeless for a year.
Lost contact with my family and friends. (more out of choice than anything else!)
Been passed from pillar to post with various Mental Health Teams/Services.
Been put on the wrong medication.

I have lived a good life, putting others before myself. Have never asked for anything in return & always treated others how I think should be done.

So how the fucking hell have the tables turned so quickly & left me in this shit state?!

Life is full of fucking surprises, isn't it?!

Yes I agree that life can be like a roller coaster at times! It's all about finding that balance, stability & structure.

I hope you can get back on your feet soon! Good luck on your journey.

A year ago i was a sucessfull executive assistant for a health care company, i was married, fit and healthy, i was studying psychology. After a nervous breakdown I weight almost 100kgs, have been through 7 public mental hospital, i have lost my job, and my husband, i havent been able to study or socialise with friends. I am alone, miserable, fat and sometimes think i;ve gone completely crazy or am possessed by the devil... i spend most of my days wondering how my life turned out like this when all i was doing was trying to live as happily and healthily as i could. Im not homeless yet, but thats a probability going forward, im lucky my parents took me in and have provided a place for me to stay not sure whats gonna happen when they die in 5 years... anyway ... is there anyone in your family or group of friends you could speak to about getting a place to live? Thats one of the most basic human needs - shelter. Without that you cant progress back up the chain to a fulfilling existance.
