Had a letter confirming that I'm on the waiting list for psychology but there is a 'significantly long' wait.

I'm struggling, really struggling and I have no support other than those useless tossers that are the crisis team. Great. Now what am I going to do in the meantime?

I'm not surprised, services often let me down.

I'm kinda scared because I'm struggling already. I was clear with my CC that I'm struggling. I don't know how I'm going to manage, I'm getting really dark thoughts at times and I don't know how I'm going to survive. Not that I want to live, I just can't put my family through it. I have no one to talk to about this and it's just unbearable and sometimes frightening but I can't be honest about it with others because there's too much stigma and some people simply don't believe MH problems are real.

Here we go again eh?  :(

Apparently the b**n specialist contacted services and now I'm seeing a CPN/CC on Tuesday..  :peepwall1: While it's nerve wracking I'm glad that something is being offered because I've been really struggling. I've done a lot of harm.

Oh no that's not good that you have done so much harm. It is good that you'll be seeing a cpn.

Thank you :hug2:

It's been really difficult lately so I really hope the new CC can help, plus I have an assessment with a clinical psychologist at the end of this month too. It's tough but at least something is being done. I can't continue like this, it's painful to walk because of the harm that I've done to my legs. This needs to stop.

I think that I'll feel better when I have some sort of plan in place. I know that part of it is to get me 'stable' enough to be able to get therapy/counseling to deal with certain past trauma, as I've posted in the full members room. It's going to be difficult at first because it's all with new people but I have to do it. The trouble is that a lot of these therapies are no geared towards people with autism so I guess I'll have to tweak a lot of it to suit me.  ::-\:

I only just started talking about childhood trauma after 2 years of counselling. These things take time and you have to trust people first. Happy some things are being put into place for you. Bunny hugs?

My guess is that the clinical psychologist may have some knowledge of Autism- perhaps your concerns about suitability are something that you can raise when you see her/him?

Probably, but it can be done. It's definitely worth asking about things they might do differently.

Also I think it's worth saying - deciding that it needs to stop is probably the best to start from in making it stop. That isn't easy but it can be done too.
“Dark times lie ahead of us and there will be a time when we must choose between what is easy and what is right.”

“It is our choices...that show what we truly are, far more than our abilities.”

“Happiness can be found in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.”
