Coconut & Fruitcake-A comedy of errors
Coconut & Friutcake will be my first published work, hopefully by the end of 2010. Within this horrifically tragic comedy there is reference to 15 years input from mental health services, both as acute inpatient and community. Predominantly the story will be set in Cumbria, but London, Yorkshire and International slips into the story from time to time.
I currently have the luxury of board and lodgings on a unit in Cumbria and the advantage of being so bored that I have been able to draft my first copy. Unfortunately our Occupational Therapist has been off sick for almost 3 weeks which has left me climbing the walls!
As I refuse to lock myself in my room, and as I am not allowed my own laptop and as the resource suit has such archaic technology. I have been able to pull together the content of my biography/screenplay/play/evidence I believe, of breeches to my Human Rights, instead of falling through the floor into depression.
As I am sure, reader, you can imagine this has gone down like a lead balloon. Firstly I was upgraded from a voluntary inmate to a section 3 (even though in my view no resistance to treatment was evident), and secondly (after, I believe, being overdosed twice after I had checked in) I was accused of non compliance.
Thirdly, I and numerous others were denied our democratic right to vote!
I could go on but it makes me want to vomit (oops, there's evidence of a new disorder to add to my insanity reference).
I am fully aware there is some excellent practitioners out there and even some human managers but living on the inside, with intelligence, excellent communication skills and a Titanium backbone gets you nowhere fast up here.
I wish all you guys out there speedy recoveries. As day 20 in the Big Brother house with no one on the outside who cares is chaffing my soul just a tad at the minute.
Perhaps I'll have the joy of an updated Care Plan in the next hour-only been waiting a fortnight!
Will try to upload the Chapter Listing for 'Coconut and Fruitcake', tomorrow that's if all the plugs have not been cut off the computers!
