I am going to have a wee rant while sitting here with my (carefully measured) glass of low alcohol wine.
Do join me.
Many moons ago my pain psychologist said to me, “I want you to think of everything through an addiction lens”. Given that I had no actual official addictions I was very happy to play along with his wee game, I nodded sagely, wisely. Except that I didn’t do anything about it. I went home having ticked ‘therapy’ off my to-do list that day.
This post is based on my experience reading the wonderful book ‘The Devil Within” by Stephanie Merrit (2008). Published by Vermillion. If you are anyone you know has ever battled with mental illness – read it. more “The Devil Within.”
