Hello everyone and welcome back to Lets Talk, Cas!
As some of you will know, I suffer with mental illness.
It’s been a struggle for me for 11 years now and recently it got a little worse because life decided to through boulders at me and with myself now waiting to go to University… Life is getting realer and and realer and it’s quite draining.
So, when I went to my doctor a few weeks ago, he put me on a waiting list to get counselling… Which is fine, I was going to give it another try, maybe 4th time lucky but then he sent me a leaflet through the post to get immediate therapy.
Why? Because the normal NHS waiting list is 6 to 9 months long…. And with me now being over the age of 18, it would probably take up to a year before I got help, which isn’t a good idea because at some point I’m going to need to get a job, and to do that I’m going to need to not suffer with Anxiety and Depression.
So, I applied, in a self referral, for therapy and I got an email yesterday and I got an appointment for Thursday, which is tomorrow… Oh lord….
I’m sort of scarred for the assessment but I think this will help me!
If any of you need help or someone to talk to, remember to always reach out!
Take care and have a great day!
