    Because I rang up and requested over the phone that she writes one - she seemed to want me to make an appointment first (which is tricky atm as I'm 130 miles away >_< )

    And the person that said I needed a letter pretty much said that all it needs to say is to confirm that I've seen the GP about the anxiety/depression issues that I have...

    Really irritating!
    Did you explain the issue with distance? That is quite awkward, sadly I'd expect that it's some kind of policy that they have to review a patient in person before writing letters.

    Yeah I did, and I said I probably wouldn't be back in the area until the end of summer break...she just said something along the lines of "well make an appointment when you come back then, perhaps we should have more regular appointments blah blah" and then, because I said the main thing I was talking to the mental health support team about was to do with exams, "that's a long way off, so it's not that important right now"

    To which I perhaps *should* have replied: It's important to me to get this sorted now so that I have one less thing to stress me out during semester time, and something to make life that tiny bit less scary. Or something.

    I felt so fobbed off, anyway. So I explained to the MH support person what was going on, and she asked if I had any older/similar letters that I could give in the mean time.

    And I can't damn find any, except an ancient CAMHS appointment card Although I had a consultant psychiatrists's (who I saw ONCE >_< ) "summing-me-up" letter from February that I assume is still on my records from when I saw a wellbeing advisor at student support...d'you think they'll let me have a copy to give as "in-the-mean-time evidence"?

    Think I'll send some emails tomorrow and see... Sorry this turned into a bit of a mini-essay haha

    I think going with someone else would make it worse (for me personally) cause there's more pressure to keep things together even in the waiting room and stuff. I don't really do people on much of a level at all. I just end up upsetting people and people don't like to be around me. Though thinking a trip back to the docs is probably on the cards as I really dislike being on Mirtaz and whilst I think mood improved temporarily, I feel very low/ 'unsafe' a lot again. Oh the fun. Hope you're doing okay :hugs:
    Fair enough - just be sure and see a doctor soon! :hugs:

    I'm good just now - found a house to live in (paying the holding fee tomorrow :crossedf: and I'm having fun on TSR being more and more elaborately facetious (without ever being untruthful :angel:). Is fine silly fun.

    I know that it can usually take a while for referrals, but that does seem like a very long time - have you (or a friend) tried chasing up either of the referrals? I know that in a friends case, a referral got lost somewhere along the way.

    You don't need to get away - I know it's hard being around people you love when you feel like you don't deserve them, but if you run away they'll only come running after you, and rightly so!

    the girl on reception was sympathetic and said she would chase
    the second was to my cmht around 2 weeks ago, so i guess i can expect something still.

    it's hard enough feeling your case is valid enough to justify seeking help, know what im saying?

    Aye, I fully understand that - unfortunately, with a lot of services, you often need to either be able to push for them yourself, or have someone who can help you. Its a sucky situation, but we just have to deal with the system the best we can.
