Service to others is my purpose here on Earth. I am dedicated to the art and love of helping and healing others.

I pray each day for God to bring me those I can help the most. I pray for the broken, the scared, the hurt and the lost. Image
In my two decades of service as an occupational therapist I have seen human beings move beyond their limitations and push past barriers they never thought they could. I have experienced the full spectrum of emotions along side of each one of my patients.
I am honored to be of service during this time on Earth. I am here to support you physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually during this difficult time for all humanity.

Proud to be an OCCUPATIONAL THERAPIST πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—πŸ’—

Today is 100 days since I was first admitted to hospital after taking a mixed overdose. I won't elaborate further.
Since then I have had 3 admissions; 2 to general wards and 1 to a #mentalhealth unit. I spent time as an informal patient and also detained under Section 3 1/21
I was under #Crisis services until last week...
Today is also the first night in 99 that I am spending alone, so to occupy myself and acknowledge the 'milestone', I thought I would reflect on 10 things that I have learnt in that time...
This comes with trigger warnings 2/21
As I will be speaking about #SelfHarm and #Suicide. I also apologise in advance for any poor grammer - I am typing this out on my phone, unable to use a key board.
These are just my own experiences/thoughts/opinions - they are not meant to be generalised. Nor are they based 3/21

Still reflecting on a Grand Rounds presentation by @TaraLaguMD last week on people with disabilities as an unrecognized health disparity population. And how there needs to be systemic change, with attention to detecting, understanding, and reducing. #DisabilityPolicy

@DrCConnell @sarah_bodell @LecturerMish @anita_atwal 1/ Good question @sarah_bodell
Love that idea @DrCConnell , we could even go to say that positive action is taken & there is always a seat specifically for election for each of those #Diversity groups
Thank you for both your engagement

⭐ Parent Blaming & PDA ⭐


Unless you have an #autistic child with #PDA (Pathological Demand Avoidance) - it's very hard to fully understand the difficulties & complexities of day to day life - both for the parents/caregivers & the child
Please don't rush to judge - parent blaming is such a toxic yet common & sometimes automatic occurrence
It takes a little more effort, but pls take the time to listen, understand & remove your assumptions - when you come across a seemingly 'bad' parent.
There will always be a reason why a parent may appear to be 'too soft' towards the child;
Why they're not 'disciplining' their 'naughty' child.
Not every child responds well to 'traditional' parenting & due to the #PDA child's extremely high #anxiety, other approaches are needed

Spent this morning reflecting on the findings of my scoping review in relation to @Carolynne_OT's models of occupation in these two papers. Looking forward to meeting with her this afternoon to discuss.……
#OccupationalTherapy #phdlife
Inspired by this gem of a question (pardon the pun) for mental health services wishing to create welcoming work environments staff with #livedexperience:
"How does your workplace shine a light on the sharing of lived experience? What shadows are cast?"
Thank you, @Carolynne_OT!
Metaphor is based on @Carolynne_OT’s model of occupation from the second paper in this thread.
