Re-referral to Community Mental Health
Today I had my telephone conversation with a Talk Plus person (actually turned out to be the lady I saw before which was good as it meant that I didn’t have to re-go over everything).
We talked over everything that has been going on lately. And her conclusion was that rather than having more Talk Plus therapy sessions, it would be prudent for me to be referred back to the CMHT and the psychologist as some of the things I told her indicated bipolar tendencies. She said I’m obviously coping very well but do need some help.
I am pleased with this result. It is good to be taken seriously although it does feel a bit like I’ve been going backwards. But I know I have to quash those feelings. I’ve had a lot to deal with in the past few months/weeks. A row with my ex on Sunday didn’t help matters I have to say. Just as I was feeling like if turned a corner. But I think I have to accept that things aren’t as linear and simple as “being over” something. Life is up and down. And so are my emotions.
I’ll keep you updated.
