So I'm back after a long hiatus. I would love to say that I spent the time getting better but I'm afraid it is quite the opposite.
I don't know how many of you guys are from the UK but I was visited by a Crisis Team last week and now I have an emergency appointment for a formal assessment of my mental health. My preliminary diagnosis (made by the GP/Psychologist that came with the Crisis Team) is that I may have a Depressive Personality Disorder.
Is the first assessment anything to be worried about? I know I should stop freaking out but I can't help myself. My anxiety has gone through the roof!
I've got a number for a Duty Care Worker so I will be okay until the appointment but I'm still not 100% sure what is going to happen or what kind of questions I will be expected to answer. The Crisis Team talked about CBT and new thought techniques that would help me but its all a bit overwhelming which is why I think Im freaking out!!
Has anyone had a really bad assessment experience or are my fears ridiculous?
