Not a threat

Comments Off on Not a threat 09 March 2018

By an astonishing coincidence, the day after the British Red Cross informed me that I had in fact imagined the bullying and abuse that first caused me a mental breakdown in 2017 and which forced me to resign from their service I attended my latest mental health assessment. Despite that I had barely slept last night – not the first time my sleep patterns have been wrecked by the charity which laughably call itself the organisation which “refuses to ignore people in crisis” – my assessment was almost enjoyable.

My assessor was a highly professional, yet very warm, individual who immediately made me feel at ease. I was able to explain both my long term mental health issues and those brought about by the bullies and abusers described above. I am and I am not comfortable talking about some aspects of this. I am comfortable talking about what happened to me because I don’t tell lies and I am not comfortable because there are people who do and appear to have no compunction in so doing. I am slightly uncomfortable too in that I know it’s my word against someone else’s. I explained that I was the little man up against a corporate giant disguised as a humanitarian organisation and people might either disbelieve me or wonder how on earth I could be telling the truth.

So, it all begins in April. More, as yet undefined, mental health treatment which could make a difference. I’d like to thank my friends and family for supporting me and keeping me sane. Those who know me well know that I have not made up this Red Cross malarkey. They chewed me up, spat me out and then called me a liar. A year since most of it happened, one mental breakdown later, I am fighting on and their refusal to apologise just means I am going to carry on until they do. This isn’t a threat: it’s a promise.
