I had an appointment with the psychiatrist today, at the outpatients clinic. Was surprised at how fast I got an appointment with him, because it usually is a rather long wait. So, after sat waiting for 10 minutes over the appt time, I finally get to speak to him. I was in there for a full 20 minutes. 20 minutes for everything to be dismissed, and disregarded. I am not being referred on to cmht. Talking therapy only offered me phone call assistance/ appointment. Not getting counselling. I am feeling pretty much downtrodden. I was told I did not need to be referred to cmht. He did not ask much about how I have been feeling, just what situation I have found myself in. He held back on fully discharging me after the first appt, he is going to wait 6 months, see me again, and then discharge me back to gp. I spent so much energy to go and get myself help... for everything to be blown out the water... really.. I am just at square one, and starting to feel like no matter what I do, this is always going to be the way for me. The only piece of advice I got from the psychiatrist.. "you should get an administrator job, in office kind of work, you have the personality, and the face for it" Cheers. Thanks. I guess all I can say out of the experience is maybe I should just go in with my scars on display, might be taken seriously then... I really dont know which route to take from here.
