Thanks for that. It was the best news I have had for ages. My parents have been saying to me for a while now that I am in a stronge position. Just seems so much more real when someone in a medical position says the same.

Thats really good news prince, it reinforces the fact that these things weren't to do with you. I'm glad that it made you feel better. Take them to the cleaners!!:hug:

To be honest I am not fussed about money - must be all those buddhist books I have been reading. ;)

It is more the fact that a medical professional agrees with me that it was the workload that made me ill and a medical professional who also knows everything else that had happened in my life and still says that.

Might even celebrate with a pizza tonight. :)

Yes, its nice to be backed up with things isn't it? I felt that way when my doctor said I was unfit to work. I knew it myself but really felt like a fraud and as if I was just lazy!! Enjoy your pizza!!:D

Hope it was hot ribena, its cold outside. And you might want to get a zen buddist book from the cheapy bookshop, keep your options open which is the best way for you. :flowers:

Hi Smiley,

Good to see you back round these parts - you have been missed.

It was cold Ribena I am afraid. Did buy another buddha book today. And my stuff from Mind turned up.

Yeah sorry I not been on for a while, have been a bit more unusual than usual.
Hopefully I'll not stray from the site for long again, I'll try to use it when the bad times come again instead of ignoring the computer along with everything else.
(P.S. ribena is good hot or cold)

I don't know if anyone has considered this when going to see a counsellor/psychiatrist.

If you have someone in your life that you trust and who loves or cares about you. Someone who understands how your illness has effected your life - then it might pay to consider bringing them with you.

I know this won't suit everyone but it is an insurance policy to ensure you get the best possible treatment and to remove some of the arbitrary practices that go on out there.

SG, Yeah coming on here definitely helps when things are not good.

Tele, that is an interesting idea. It is slightly different but after months of going back and forth from my GP I took my dad with me. He has suffered MH problems himself and was more aware than I was what was going on with me.

I took him as an imsurance policy to make sure I did not forgot to say anything. It worked well as things finally starting moving in the right direction after that. Not sure about taking anybody to CBT with me though. I can be a right moody bastard after it sometimes.

Yeah not much usual about me on a good day. Quite like that part of my personality though. PB - I wonder what my reason is for being a moody bastard if I haven't had CBT?:D
