I had some CBT counselling earlier this year and after 4 sessions the person i was seeing decided to end the CBT as i was finding it hard to deal with it ( not very chatty until i feel at ease ) , not entirely her fault though she should had been a bit more understanding and i blame myself for letting her down , anyway that was then , i had always been told i could return for treatment of some sort and i was told that a different place could be arranged like my surgery as i knew there was no way i could return to the building where i went before , well it is well known that my depression went down hill rapidly so i recently approached Dorset Health Care asking them for help as i didn't know where to turn to , the place i went before just made my anxiety worse, they very kindly got in contact with a distant neighbouring town who are also part of the Mental Health Treatment programme to see what they could do , a lady there got back to me via phone ( i cannot talk on the phone unless it is family or friend ) , she explained that i could go there for treatment but i cannot afford travel coast ( about a hour travel ) so i explained that i couldn't talk on phone - my anxiety was getting up badly , was shaky , etc so she told me that she would email me back after she had had a chat with the person in charge of the programme here , told her that it should be on my record what happened last time , etc , so she said that she would see what they could do to help , anyway that was all sorted , and it was on my record that they would have to email me rather then phone . So that i thought would be okay , felt i could get the courage up when i got letter or email informing me of appointment . this afternoon i got a call - no number so i thought it might had been my surgery as i had been round there this morning to request a sick note and they were ringing me to say it was ready , but no it was what i assume a receptionist from the Mental health , etc place letting me know about an appointment for next week , so i tried telling the person that they were not supposed to ring me as it was on my record but she just ignored that by over speaking telling me about Wednesday , there i was saying that i cannot deal with this , still she ignored my speaking , then she told me that the appointment would be at a surgery that is not mine so then i tried to get her to understand that i could go to a place that i don't know and that it was supposed to be my surgery as i know that place i am okay in the there , still she spoked over me , basically it was either there or the actual place where i went before so i then tried to tell her that it is on my record that i cannot go there , my rant is why can't people pay attention to your record - read it , do what it says - says don't ring but email so do that !! , i am online a few times a day so i would had picked it up within minutes and i could had replied yes appointment is okay so please send out letter , that one phone call made me very shaky and cannot stop getting tearful and i had started the day okay for a change !
