I am putting this blog together in order to help me keep as mentally sane as possible whilst embarking on the journey of a lifetime (or so it seems) I am hoping this will enable me feel less alone and will help others in some small way. The transition from clinician to patient, care giver to care receiver isn’t an easy one to make. I will be reporting on the NHS from the other side but all views are my own. I shall be using scaling to monitor both my physical and mental health state. I welcome your comments and really do appreciate you keeping in touch.
