Why are the NHS and other ‘health-care’ organisations so dis-respectful, unsupportive and in-human towards their own medical men and women?
Are we ultimately responsible for this gross abuse of the people who try to patch us up, offer the health care we demand?
Maybe it is time for us all to collectively accept responsibility for our own well-being?
To ensure that we have a fully stocked First Aid cabinet at home.
To take responsibility for our own eating, smoking, drinking, drug-taking, adrenaline-seeking activities, because we KNOW that they are harmful to our bodies and minds.
To fully understand why we do our best to sabotage our own lives: why we depend on excessive food intake, cigarettes, alcohol, caffeine, drugs and extreme activities?
To fully understand and appreciate deeply how we feel when we reach for these substances. Why they make us feel better? What is it about our lives that we don’t like or feel uncomfortable about that we must either divert away our attention or numb ourselves to?
When we start asking these questions and then finding our own truthful answers; then we can start taking responsibility for our own lives.
And then we can stop becoming burdens to our over-worked and over-stressed medical staff.

I used to feel very self-conscious and super-critical because I felt I looked less than I wanted to look. Now I am realising that I was frightened of and not accepting my own vulnerability and fragility which I am now beginning to embrace as these facets are a major part of who I am. ❤
