Cancelled appointment

Posted , 3 users are following.

I thought I was doin ok, I've been reasonably productive and my mood hasn't been too low, then my pychiatrist cancelled my appointment yesterday. The next one they could offer me is in march. I'd put together a list of things I wanted to talk about and I was hoping for an adjustment with my medication and now I feel lost again. I hate how one small change can completely ruin my mood, and it's not just for the day, sometimes it lasts ages. I have so much to do yet I'm just sitting here playing games on my iPad and avoiding it all. I want to change but I don't know how. If I try and force myself then my chest gets tight and I end up having a panic attack.

    Hi, I'm sorry your appointment was canceled, I had an appointment with mine on Tuesday but when I got there he wasn't there, he'd gotten the wrong date, I didn't think it bothered me too much but when I got back home I just cried, I'd built myself up to it and also had things in my head that I wanted to talk about, im booked in for next Tuesday though, im sorry you have to wait so long.

    I'm the same, always lots to do but often can't bring myself To do them, what I do when feel like this is do one thing a time, I don't try to do it all at once as it can get overwhelming, so I'd sit down on my phone or Watch tv then every so often get up and do something/housework for say 10-15 minutes then sit down again, trouble is sometimes once im sat down i don't want to get up to do anything but at the same time it plays on my mind and once ive done it all I do feel better for it.

    Also music helps to motivate me whilst I'm cleaning xx

      That's exactly how i do things smile in the adverts of TV shows and I have a playlist to do housework by. That way I can sing along and don't have time to think. I'm so glad I found these forums, they've made me realise I'm not alone. Xx

      Me too! Don't think I'd get anything done if I didn't have music x

      Yes it's nice to know others feel the same, not that I take joy in others feeling this way as Wouldnt wish it on my worst enemy, not that I have any I don't think 😁 except maybe my ex!

      But it's a comfort to know we're not alone xx

      The receptionist said she'll get her to phone me instead but now I'm even more anxious as I'm hopeless with the phone, sometimes I can't even answer it. Today's just a bad day, I need it to hurry up and end so I can start afresh tomorrow.
