    Thoughts of an ex healthcare worker, again

    Update: I still miss my clients. I hope they are ok. I’m so sorry I left you. I hope I changed their lives in a positive way, forever. I really hope I made a difference. I still haven’t forgotten their faces. Their voices. Their stories. I wish I could have helped more of them. I wish I could tell one of my clients how I finally watched that movie they recommended, because it was their favorite. I hope they got that record player working. I hope their new case managers are doing right by them. I hope this other client kept his promise to keep taking his meds and I am still so grateful he gave me the “permission” I needed to leave. He will never know how badly I needed it. I hope a different client did too keep taking his meds, although he didn’t want to make a promise he may not keep. And I hope that client makes his way out of his shitty situation. I hope their next case managers also have smi so that they can relate just like we did. I miss them. I miss the day to day routine. Reporting on clients in the morning meetings. I think I was my superiors favorite lol, she let me get away with way too much. And even the director of the program liked me a lot. My manager told me that I was “going to go far in life, with whatever you decided to do”. It was nice having someone believe in me like that, like my parents never could. She teared up as she was praising me for the major amount of progress and growth as a person I had made. Thank you for believing in me. I hope I didn’t let you down. When I left, my manager said that I must have “gone head first, too fast” and that was why I was burnt out so soon. She admired that about me. She would tell me “I know to go to you if I want something done. Because I know that if I need something done, you are going to get it done and get it done right.” I miss many of my coworkers, I miss the dynamic we all had. I admired their bravery. I miss those halls where my uncle once walked. #HealthCare #MentalHealth
