Mental Health is a very private thing in some cases. When it comes to the Hippa Law you are entitled to privacy and the other day the woman working here where I live now in assisted living violated my Hippa Rights by discussing my mental health in front of other people in the main hallway instead of in my room in private. I was so upset I started talking to her and then in 5 or 10 minutes she decides my diagnoses are wrong and she gives me a much more awful diagnosis then I already have. I finally complained to the head of nursing and she was shocked that it happened and I was crying since my family told me I should have refused to talk to her. I was given permission to go back to my old provider and she said there is no way she could decide in 5 to 10 minutes that I needed a new diagnosis and new medicines. She is not touching my medicines and I am not talking to her again. Hopefully the higher ups have been told what happened like I was promised. If I want to discuss my private mental health with others that is my choice, but she gave me no choice and she was wrong.
Linda’s Rules for #SoCS!
It’s Friday! Sorry I’m a bit late with your Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt. Got caught up with work and totally forgot where I was. Anyway, here’s your prompt:
Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is “me.” Find a word that starts with “me” or use the word “me” as the theme of your post. Have fun!
After you’ve written your Saturday post tomorrow, please link it here to this week’s prompt page and check to make sure it’s here in the comments so others can find it and see your awesome Stream of Consciousness post. Anyone can join in!
To make your post more visible, use our beautiful SoCS badge! Just paste it in your Saturday post so people browsing the reader will immediately know your post is stream of consciousness and/or pin it as a widget to your site to show you’re a participant. Wear it with pride!!
Here are the rules:
1. Your post must be stream of consciousness writing, meaning no editing (typos can be fixed), and minimal planning on what you’re going to write.
2. Your post can be as long or as short as you want it to be. One sentence – one thousand words. Fact, fiction, poetry – it doesn’t matter. Just let the words carry you along until you’re ready to stop.
3. I will post the prompt here on my blog every Friday, along with a reminder for you to join in. The prompt will be one random thing, but it will not be a particular subject. For instance, I will not say “Write about dogs”; the prompt will be more like, “Make your first sentence a question,” “Begin with the word ‘The,’” or will simply be a single word to get you started.
4. Ping back! It’s important, so that I and other people can come and read your post! For example, in your post you can write “This post is part of SoCS:” and then copy and paste the URL found in your address bar at the top of this post into yours. Your link will show up in my comments for everyone to see. The most recent pingbacks will be found at the top. NOTE: Pingbacks only work from WordPress sites. If you’re self-hosted or are participating from another host, such as Blogger, please leave a link to your post in the comments below.
5. Read at least one other person’s blog who has linked back their post. Even better, read all of them! If you’re the first person to link back, you can check back later or go to the previous week by following my category, “Stream of Consciousness Saturday,” which you’ll find below the “Like” button on my post.
6. Copy and paste the rules (if you’d like to) in your post. The more people who join in, the more new bloggers you’ll meet and the bigger your community will get!
7. As a suggestion, tag your post “SoCS” and/or “#SoCS” for more exposure and more views.
8. Have fun!
