Sorry for venting but they are making me feel worse as well as messing me around.
Months ago before i got this bad i told my CPN that i was feeling more stressed and anxious than usual, she said she would refer me for psycotherapy, she completely forgot and when i asked about it a couple of months later she said i was too ill to cope with it and need more meds.
I have a phobia of new meds, she refuses to discuss this phobia.
They made me an appointment 10 miles away to see a consultant, i explained my agoraphobia but they insisted it was the only way and home visits no longer exist.
Well needless to say i couldn't get there, now they have decided home visits do exist after all and i can have one but they don't know when yet.
The CPN is insisting i accept more medication, says nothing else can be said or done to help me but i don't want it.
I am getting CBT via phone in 6-7 weeks, my gp gave me the details to self refer so that is positive but the mental health team refuse to go down any other route than medication, if i ring the crisis team at night for support they just say 'You will be okay, they are going to sort out your medication'.
I am not well but have never been in hospital or anything and am seriously thinking about telling them to go away and leave me alone, they are not helping at all,in fact they just stress me out and make me worry more.
Again, sorry, just needed to vent.
