Thread: Fed up of struggling *AB triggers*

    Fed up of struggling *AB triggers*

    So I was told I was going to be starting CBT on Feb, turns out it was a 2 session workshop on trauma and PTSD, which did nothing to help. I'm still waiting on trauma therapy to start and I have no idea how much longer than will take and I'm seriously starting to feel like how I was before I even started taking any medication, so I don't even think that's helping anymore. How long was your wait for therapy?

    I had a group of 12 weeks group work as an interim to counselling with a specialist organisation, but I've been told that with the wait for 1:1 could be 5 years or more. But each day I'm on that list it's getting a day closer...

    When was your last meds review?

    I've not been offered anything else. My dose was upped around mid December, I think

    Then you need to go back to your doctor for a meds review, love
    The purpose of life is not to be happy. It is to be useful, to be honorable, to be compassionate, to have it make some difference that you have lived and lived well.

    Have you asked to be on the waiting list for 1:1? Definitely go and talk it all through with your GP lovely.

    Yes, I've asked for 121....I had an email telling me they'd let me know when I'd reached the top of the list. Is there a way I can check my position on the list? The thing is that now it's been so long, I'm really going to find it hard to speak to my GP again....like I have to build myself up all over again, if that makes sense.

    It does make sense, but you really need to do it, love

    It does need to be done. It's really important to do this. Maybe try to keep regular appointments so it's not building yourself up again each time itms?

    Do you have a number you can call for the counselling that you could ask about the waiting list. I think a lot depends on your location as to how long the wait is. It's definitely increased in the last two years. There are also helplines you can call such as Samaritans and mind and your GP can give you the number for the crisis line should you need.

    I feel like I'm getting nowhere. I'm trying to sort some (much needed!) help, whilst I'm still waiting on a therapist, its been almost 5 months now. I've tried the live chat sessions with r*pe crisis and victim support and not been able to get through...I've enquired about 2 online CSA supports groups, to be told there is a "long waiting list"....I've asked about a face to face group, but I can't go to it because I'm "out of area of support" and I haven't been able to find another face to face in my area. I've been given the details.of samaritans and the samaritans app but that's what I was already doing....I was already emailing samaritans. This is so frustrating....
