1st appt with Psy

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi all

I thought I'd let you all know how it went with my 1st appt with the Psychiatrist yesterday.

She did a full assessment and asked me lots of questions about past and present. I thought I'd become emotionless until she started asking those questions which made me cry my eyes out.

She said I had many issues and she has to think about what sort of help I need. She believes I need long-term counselling and to get things out of my system. My next appointment is in about 6 weeks time, so I don't really know what to expect.

She was very nice and sympathetic and I felt very comfortable with her. I'm glad that I went and happy that things maybe rolling for me now - I'm aware that it's going to take a long time before I start to feel better but, I accept that now.

I'll have to see my GP about me not wanting to go for CBT anymore. Before I even went to see the Psychiatrist I've been disappointed in my therapist because of her 'bullying' tactics. If she sees me in a good mood she's great with me but, when she sees me in low mood she's really stroppy and mean. She also believed that I didn't need to see a Psychiatrist.

Anyway, take care all. I'm off on holiday later on today and am going to try to enjoy it. smile

    hiya behappy :cheerup:

    great stuff, congrats, now you will get somewhere behappy, now you have specialist help you should start to improve even before your next appointment :mrgreen: just keep reminding yourself that the experts are on the case now :wink:

    i've said before that there are good therapists and bad ones :? by what you say you definitely have a bad one :shock: tell your trickcyclist about her and that you need to start again with another therapist :ok: the right therapist can work wonders, it can be hard work but it really works and is worth the effort :rainbow: the trouble with therapists is they can 'practice' WITHOUT any formal qualifications :shock: and also there is a big shortage of them in the NHS :huh:

    relax, enjoy your holiday and get out in the fresh air, even if it's only for short walks :ok: :wink: oh and go easy on the alcohol if you like a swally :roll: :whistle:

    bon voyage,

    Ken~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ :run: :peace: :rose:
