When Typo’s Aren’t Typo’s

The challenge I have these days with the new me is such posts take an incredible amount of time to write for processing information is as fast as watching grass grow…and no not Pilbara grass after a rainfall (those in the area know what I mean). Whilst I have many diary notes from over the […]


Diagnosis

Between the date of my incident in April 2013 and November 2014, apart from attending work, I was devoted to attending regular medical exams under the directives of my GP in Karratha and the company that I had worked for. This was done in order to search for answers as to why I had the […]


Treatment

My initial treatment was to receive the services of a Psychiatrist and a Psychologist. When my GP said that he would refer me to these specialist prior to any other rehabilitation, I was straight out shocked. Whilst I had many ailments present, I would swear black and blue that I was not going crazy. As far […]

Fish Bone (1)

For those who aren’t aware, a “fishbone” diagram is otherwise called a “cause and effect” diagram or “Ishikawa” which was created by Kaoru Ishikawa (1968) that show the causes of a specific event. I studied such things when I was functioning as a normal healthy person (pre-incident) and whilst in this case I have not […]


Anger Management

Now before everyone starts misinterpreting the heading, my anger or mood swings are in no way represented in any act of violence.
