Success with the NHS !
« on: December 14, 2018, 10:12:35 AM »
Good good news ...
I went for assessment with community mental health team this WK (this is my 5th assessment over the years). It was a thorough and in depth assessment and i had a call yesterday to say that i have been taken under the teams care (secondary services ) and am being assigned a care co ordinator .
I can't express fully enough what this means to me ...at last i feel i have been heard and validated for what my cptsd creates in me.
So much of being heard has been helpled by using this site and other sources of help to be able to articulate my psych experinces.  The work sheets on trauma symptoms on this site really helped me as i filled these out and took those in with me to read from.

Someone is finally going to be caring for me on a 24 hr basis i have numbers to call and a person i can develop a relationship with that wont be made and gone in a flash.

If anyone needs any help getting heard reach out for others experience and get the treatment and care we all deserve . complex ptsd is soon to be added to the icd 11 diagnositic manual and the hope of better knowledge and treatment feels strong in me. I want to lead the way , informing professionals on what it means as a lived experience of having this psychological injury and what is needed to heal . I'm so grateful i continue to strive (even when times get so dark i seem to be able to pick myself up again. But we all need support and understanding and we all need hope .....
Its there if we stick together as we do
God bless you all and thank u for being here for me
