How long do I wait?
« on: May 30, 2018, 11:52:39 AM »
Today isnít good donít know why had a few flashbacks and nightmares which havenít particularly scared me more just annoyed me. Iím on yet another nhs waiting list for anxiety clinic which I was told I should be contacted at the beginning of May, have been on it for 9 weeks now and nothing!........
So am I entitled to try somehow to contact them? I have no info about it so not even sure where to go with this,  Iím feeling tearful and hurt like Iíve been let down and no one cares, I know Iím probably over reacting but just fed up with waiting list after waiting list.... rant over!

Maybe contact GP secretary and ask for an update?

I've had similar waiting for nothing to happen stuff lately, drives me up the wall.
Everything will be alright in the end.

If things aren't alright then it isn't the end.

RainAgain, wish it was that easy, this is a totally different service from the Gp service itís a local mental health group that runs off the nhs, havenít found any contact details for it yet.

Do you have a letter or something that says you are on the list? That may have contact details on it. Did they give you a timescale?

I have been on the waiting list for CBT, they told me it was likely to be 20 weeks, but they did send me a monthly letter (or so) apologising for the delays.

Hey gromit, no it was just word of mouth by my therapist she said Iíd hear by the beginning of May, I have no contact details of where it is or who to go to, the only thing I can do is go back to where I saw my counsellor and ask to see if someone can help me from there I think!

don't know anything about this, but want to send you love and a big hug while going thru this.  sounds so frustrating. 
learn something from everything.
