Was arrested on Tuesday, transported to Masterton Wednesday & have next court date, but still no lawyer. Was doing a protest at Health & Disability Commission, knowing there was a warrant out for my arrest, which is what I was picked up on. I tried to get a lawyer to get me out of staying but it became to traumatic and my behaviour and mental health was really bad. Lots of self-harming and freaking out.
So much to tell you about what happened during my time in custody, the good and the bad.
First, I also heard from my contact at Ministry of Health, high up in the Director of Health’s office. ACC are reinstating my care, the have an OT organised who will be contacting me and a social worker/mental health worker to help me get a doctor and decent psychiatrist. Also organise going back to gym, swimming and doing more with my music and art.
You wait until all that care and support kicks in and I can do protests and get arrested without self-harming and having these horrendous events. Oh yeah and I”m terrified – EIGHT years since I won the ACC review – eight fucking years – those evil cruel scum. I will continue to pursue human rights complaints against them at the United Nations. They ruined my life – for what?
Getting a decent lawyer going to be biggest challenge, I’m still not stopping my human rights complaints about what has been happening and all the bigotry I encounter. Just now I won’t be freaking out so badly with being so unsupported. Also I should be able to present at select committees etc without freaking out – which would be good.
