I can’t really think of anything else to say about the article, which is just incredible.
What I can say is I’ve been working on my book and I’ve really found it very rewarding to write.
The book is about a woman named Sarah who was diagnosed with bipolar disorder when she was 14.
It’s about the challenges of managing depression and bipolar disorder while working in a mental health clinic.
She had been seeing the psychiatrist for more than 20 years, but when she came in the next day, it was like a shock.
Her psychiatrist told her she had a manic episode.
She had a few seizures, and she went into shock.
So they sent her to a mental hospital for an assessment, and then they sent a second assessment for another 24 hours.
Then she got a diagnosis of bipolar disorder and went back to see the psychiatrist.
There was no warning.
She went to the hospital again, and the next appointment was another manic episode, this time at least three times in one day.
That’s when the psychiatrist diagnosed her with bipolar.
So what did she do?
She started taking antidepressants.
And then she stopped taking them, she stopped sleeping, she started drinking more and more, she got very agitated.
So then she went to a hospital in Northland, where she was on a waiting list for a hospital.
But when the hospital opened her in October, she had no idea where she would be.
She had no clue if she was going to be transferred or if she would even get an appointment.
Sarah told me that it was almost as if she’d been thrown into a sea of anxiety and confusion.
If she hadn’t taken antidepressants and stopped taking her medication, she wouldn’t have been able to make an appointment at the hospital.
She would have missed out on an appointment with her psychiatrist.
And the depression was still there, and it had come back, it would be there again.
So the psychiatrist’s first thought was, “Sarah, there’s something wrong with you.”
So Sarah went to her psychiatrist and she started crying and saying, “I’m not getting my appointment because I’m not feeling well.”
And she told the psychiatrist that she was very confused.
She said, “Oh, I don’t know why I’m feeling this way.”
She was very, very confused about what she was feeling, because she had been diagnosed with depression and anxiety.
And she was also confused about the fact that she didn’t have an appointment scheduled.
So she got really agitated and she took medication for depression.
She took some antipsychotics for anxiety, and medication for bipolar disorder.
And her psychiatrist said, she’s going to need you to go and see the therapist.
She told Sarah that she would need to see her psychiatrist, and Sarah got very upset and she got her appointment cancelled.
And then she was discharged from the hospital and didn’t make a phone call.
We didn’t get a call for the next six weeks, and her psychiatrist did not give us a call back.
So it wasn’t until December of this year that we got a call from the psychiatrist again, asking Sarah to come in for a meeting with her, and we were really excited.
In the end, it turns out that the psychiatrist actually was right.
She wasn’t the only person who was confused about Sarah’s depression and that was her first impression of the psychiatrist, the first impression that she made when she saw Sarah.
She was just not sure what to do about it.
And so we went in and we spoke with her.
We were both very frustrated and we told her about Sarah.
We talked to her about the issues she was having.
We spoke about what was going on in her life, what was in her head.
And we talked about why she was not getting an appointment for an appointment, and so she made some appointments.
And what she did, in fact, is she made a referral to the psychiatrist to see him.
She called the psychiatrist and told him about Sarah and how she was experiencing depression and panic attacks, and he recommended her for an evaluation.
This psychiatrist, he went to Sarah and said, Sarah, I’ve seen you in the past and I have to tell you, I can tell that you’re struggling with depression, that you need to be evaluated.
He said, You need to get medication, you need help, you’ve been diagnosed, and you’re not getting that.
Sarah told him that she had made some very important decisions in her past, and that she needed to make those decisions in a different way, that she’d like to be able to do more of that.
So we started talking about her future and how to keep her happy.
And in the end Sarah came in for the evaluation, and
