Mental Health

Today is the day I went back.

Back to Dr Rensburg. Well to be honest, I was really going back to see Viola. She is an incredible councillor and so easy to talk to. No judgements. I didn’t look at my weigh-in number. I know it would be a little distressing and that if I am on the program I will feel much better about my weight next week.

As I sit here thinking about my weight, I am also listening to Q&A on the ABC. Whilst my weight is important to my overall wellbeing, I am so lucky compared to many others that suffer from mental health issues. This week is Mental Health Week and they have an incredible line-up of television programs for viewing this week.

Some years ago I needed the care of a number mental healthcare professionals and I cannot speak more highly of the role they play in society.

Please take the time and think about mental health in your community and how you might be able to contribute to someone who might need it.

I have a deathly fear of bees : I have a natural ballet 'turn-out' position : Most people think I walk like a duck : I use to hate my freckles when I was young, but now love them : I hate people calling me 'dude' : I have never been bitten by a spider or a snake or a horse or a dog : I never say 'cheers' at the end of a conversation or email : I always have to put on lip balm and get a glass of water before i go to bed :

  1. Hi Carolyn
    I have been going to Dr Rensburg since February- have lost over 20 kilos slowly (because I cheat a lot :/) and on the last 19 now! I am feeling motivated again (it comes and goes with me) and now really pushing to get to maintenance finally. If you ever want to chat Dr Rensburg/Viola stuff, it would be cool to have a Hawthorn St Clinic buddy! x

    It was great to read your blog, I go back for my fist appointment in two years tomorrow. It was really great to see that I can relate to what you are going through. I am the heaviest I have ever been in my life but I am determined to do it this time. Good luck and I can’t wait to read more.

    I have been following your blog for a while and I know what your going mean, I also went to Dr Rensberg some years ago and lost a whole heap of weight then as you know work consumes you and your falling back into old habits
    Are you still on the program now?

  5. No not at the moment Sandy but would love to go back again – how about you? Would you go back again?
