I started buying things for my own place when I get discharged, I even have colour schemes for each room and I have some lovely things for the kitten I plan on buying! I've begun applying to courses at colleges back near home as I plan on moving that way when I get discharged. And I've even made some connections with mental health people back up North in preparation for my job search!
All of these preparations have helped to excite me about my future and remind me how badly I want it but now it's time to think what's stopping me. What are the things that are still in my way, preventing me from discharge?
- The voices; I'd prefer it if they were very quiet or non-existent upon discharge
- The rabbits; if they can't go completely then I'd like to be able to manage them, no matter how many there are
- When the opportunity arises my first thought is to run or self-harm, if it can't change then I'd like to be 100% confident that I can keep myself safe no matter what
- I have things from my past that need to be worked on
