I’ve had cbt before it was great the lady was lovely we total clicked and she understood me and my strange OCD issues. Unfortunately we’ve moved area and I had to go to a new service well to say it was a interesting first appointment would be a understatement.
The NHS is amazing but there mental health support in my area sucks. Unless your a danger to yourself or others you have no chance of airport other than a few sessions with the local support team.
So off I go after the go recommended I attend the local centre. I thought what’s to loose let’s try.😀
:your anxious, your minds running over time
:you feel vulnerable
:feel like people will laugh at you and your world in your head
Well yes it went terrible.
I’m sat in this small sweaty hot room with a lady I’ve never met who keeps looking at her watch quietly frankly is obviously counting down the time to dinner
After asking me a million and one questions on a questionnaire that didn’t really relate to me she then asks me why I’m there. I say “don’t you have my notes I’ve already had a telephone consultation” she’s looks blankly at me. I guess not I mutter
As I start to tell her my issues she’s keeps asking have you had cbt before I don’t know what will work so we will go down the same route as before. 😳 You obviously have lots of issues I only have space for 8 sessions so I’ll see what I can do. Shocked was a understatement yes I’ve anxiety and OCD and food issues but there all linked together.
Out I walked after she tried to book another appointment straight on the phone to the gp to ask for a private referral. She agreed so I wait to see how this will go…….
