Festive Fotos …

as promised.

Unfortunately my creative juices, tho’ flowing again, are not yet up to par. I am pleased that I’ve actually had the camera out of the drawer for the first time in a couple of months, not so pleased with the results which seem a little lacklustre to me.

[One of the problems with my PTSD is that it hits me very unexpectedly. I’ve been well for such a long time that it surprised the hell out of me and this time, believe it or not, it was my GP who triggered it! At my meet and greet appointment she demanded  “Why do you take anti-depressants?” on hearing I have PTSD she then demanded to know the details of why I “presumed ” I have it. I very rarely discuss it and if I do it’s because I have made the choice; I’m in control of how much and what I say and the person to whom I am talking is familiar and trusted. I felt bullied. Suffice to say that following that appointment I started to have nightmares (this time about going to the surgery!), my startle reflex went into overdrive, my anxiety levels rocketed and my mood slumped. I have no intention of consulting that particular GP again.]

Hopefully the photography will improve soon, for the moment I’m just happy that the shutter is beckoning once more.

  1. Am impressed.
    As you described, there is always something to each one.
    Merry Xmas to you and all your company.

  2. Sometimes it is not the questions someone asks it is the way the question is asked. I hope your local GP practice has someone who has an empathic approach rather than the approach taken on your visit. I liked your pictures (not your consultation).

    1. Luckily at least two others who have a much better “bedside” manner so I’m no longer too anxious to walk through the surgery doors. Glad you like the photos.

  3. We are feeling for you.
    You would think that in this day and age that anyone involved in the medical profession would have some understanding of what your going through.
    Just keep taking those photos, they enhance your blog.
    We will wish you a merry Christmas now, but I expect we will converse before the big day. Take care.

    1. I’d like to think that she was just having a bad day but she was almost as bad with my daughter when K had her meet and greet appointment in a different week! Thank you so much for your support.

      As for the photos, I’m starting to feel the creative juices stirring so I’ll try to get back in the groove.
      I hope we have another “chat” before the festivities impair my focussing fingers too badly! Until then enjoy all the christmas songs whilst you’re out shopping, the adverts telling you about all the christmas must haves in the shops, online and guaranteed before christmas delivery, the christmas films and TV specials, all of which make me wish for easter!!! 🤣
