    I have another 3 days to wait. Doesn't sound like much but when you are disappointed and depressed waiting that long for relief is too much. I saw my pdoc on Tuesday and I agreed to wait until Friday for ECT instead of Wednesday. I was going downhill but only mildly, not moderate. So, today I got a call, which I missed, that said the pdoc doing ECT tomorrow can't do it so did I mind if I waited until Monday... as if I had a say in the matter. I am ready to cry and throw something which I have never done. I have been counting the days since Tuesday, knowing I would have relief on Friday. Now I have a long weekend to get through as I have nothing going on tomorrow or the rest of the weekend. For the first time in a long time I am thinking about self harm, wanting it, not doing it.

    I know the pdoc must have a good reason to cancel but it doesn't make it any better. I hate this.

    I suppose that the health care bureaucracy is unavoidable, but when it malfunctions a lot of people suffer.

    can you call them back and tell them what is going on? hopefully they can do something for you to help you get through until monday. I don't know if they will or not, but it might be worth a try

    I don't know, maybe crying and throwing something might make you feel better?

    if you keep talking here, that might help

    you could vent all of your feelings here and also on the "let it all out" forum

    I hope that something helps and that you can make it through to monday
