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.
