After being diagnosed with a serious physical illness, I had a lot of support from various professionals including a therapist. However, now that the treatment for this has ended (for now) it seems as if I'm on my own and still struggling to come to terms with all that has happened. I struggle anyway with bad depression and previously saw a therapist privately for this. I had to stop this because I was too unwell to get to the appointments and also for financial reasons. Now I feel I have nowhere to turn.

Have you tried going back to your gp and seeing if they can set up some support for you ?

Obviously I don't know the physical injury side of things but the depression could be helped with more therapy ? I don't rate the nhs in this department but it wouldn't hurt to try ?xx

Well done for posting proud of you x

Thanks. My GP has been really supportive and I am on the waiting list for therapy but you know what the waiting lists are like. I did see a CPN for an initial appointment but refused to have any more contact with her after she didn't turn up for the next appointment (great way to help a person feel worthwhile!)

My last therapist on the NHS looked at me in disgust because I self harmed....

Conversation went like this

How do you feel I can help you

I don't know

Ahhhh I see *looks at her notes* your one of them

One of them what

An attention seeker

What the fuck

Well you do self harm don't you

A few choice words came out of my mouth stormed to my gp he put in a massive complaint turns out wasn't the first time she had done something like that.

She was a total bitch put me off the nhs counsellors haha x

How do people like that even become therapists!!! Personally, I'd make a complaint to their registering body As they shouldn't be allowed to practise. I did see a good psychologist on the nhs but she was strictly short term. My worry about the next therapist is that they won't be great and where will that leave me.

Yeah, my preference would be to go back to my private therapist but just can't afford it at present.
