Okies ... bit of a long story but some background.
I started CBT about this time last year. I attended about 10 sesions but over a long period of time, about 10 months! (This was all due to me not wanting to go and talk to someone.) I was very lucky that I had someone to pay for these sessions during this time.
I wasn't finding it very helpful, in fact it was making things worse and I ended up getting very upset and having panic attacks during therapy so had to stop going.
I was referred back to my GP who before then hadn't known anything about what I was going through. My therapist wrote a letter explaining the situation, so again I said very little. I then saw an NHS Psychologist for an assessment, the outcome being that he agreed with the diagnosis but that I should go back to my therapist.
I then spent the next few months doing nothing and steadily getting worse. I finally decided last night that I had to do something otherwise things were never going to get any better and I'd go downhill even more. I spoke to therapist today and confirmed that I wouldn't be able to go back to her. (I've known this for ages but just been kidding myself that I would be able to)
So now I'm stuck again ..... I guess I need to go back to the GP, but have no idea what to say or what will happen from here? I'm still very cautious about talking to anyone about everything .....
Just looking for some advice really. It's taken me this long to finally decide I need some help, esp since I have to start looking for a new job soon. At the moment I have the suppport of my employer, I won't have that soon.
Thanks in advance.
