    :hugs: Is it possible to ask people not to tell you any more info about this thing? It's really not helping you, that's obvious, and I don't see how your knowing more would benefit anyone else?

    Really hope all this stops soon. :console:

    I am being very kind to myself. This includes buying all the stuff, playing with all the mice, and generally lolling about being awesome.

    Sorry to hear that, especially that you're feeling so alone. :console: You can always message me any time you need someone to speak to though.

    Hi!

    I'm not sure this is the right place for my post but hopefully somebody can help

    I have been suffering anxiety/depression related issues for about four years with no help. Today I finally went to my GP about anxiety and she told me to self-refer to my local community services for a course of CBT, and then go back afterwards to discuss if I need beta blockers or antidepressants.

    I have two questions for anyone who has done a similar route to me; firstly, my doctor asked me if I was depressed and I said 'I don't think so, I don't know' and we left it at that. However, looking at the questionnaire I have to complete before my telephone assessment with the community services, depression questions are included and tbh I want to answer it honestly. Doing this will mean answering 'most days/lots of days' to a lot of the depression criteria. How would this link with the service? Do they assess you and diagnose or is it just assessing for the purposes of what treatment you need?

    Secondly, do you have much say in your CBT? My GP said it would be either one on one or a group session, and either 6, 9 or 10 sessions. My main anxiety comes from situations involving strangers, situations where I don't know who will be there or if I will not know anybody there, etc. Would I be reasonable in requesting one on one sessions at least at first? I really don't think I would be comfortable or able to attend group sessions and I really want to get this sorted, it ruined my first and second year uni grades and now I've graduated it's stopping me from taking part in all of the courses my employer wants to put me on. But, due to the nature of WHY I am going for this treatment, I really don't want to do a group session

    Any thoughts or experiences of others would be really helpful and hopefully calm me down a bit!

    cant quote people but infairverona, welcome and well done for seeing the GP. the service wont diagnose you with anything but it will be clear to whoever is assessing you, what your needs are based on the answers to your questions. essentially these types of services will either offer you counselling or CBT... if something traumatic has triggered it then you might get counselling but usually it will be CBT, which will address both the anxiety and any underlying depression.
    Secondly, I wouldn't jump straight into it, but if they mention that there is either group or individual, I would bring up at this point that you would rather 1:1. you are well within your rights to do this and this choice will mostly be respected. tbh if it clear that your anxiety has some sort of social element then they may just put you straight onto 1:1. hope this helps somewhat.

    Hehe, I'm sure you'll get in! Do you still want more comments on your PS, or now you've done that application is that you set for the now?

    I do a bit of origami, but I can't draw for ****. My sister got all the drawing genes, and it was me with the fabricky ones.

    Nah, I did keep it up for a while and I enjoyed it, but I stopped then came back to it and I just kind of lacked the necessary effort. I signed up for a set of classes and didn't end up showing up to half of them. I did it enough to get back an ok level of fitness, which was one of my original goals (as well as just having fun), so I'm happy with that.

    How about you, you've been properly into it for quite a while now, right?
    I'm taking a bit of a break from writing my PS atm But I will do soon! I start my volunteering with the gardening group next week bit nervous but it'll be nice to get out of the house I guess.

    They are super cute

    Yeah, I'm currently debating whether £90 is too much money to spend on 3 private lessons I've entered my schools annual competition in September and I desperately need help for my routine but can't get it in class so will have to do privates... and privates are fun, but eep, expensive.

    Super tired and mopey tonight. I understand why he won't but I wish my ex would just text me or communicate in someway He said before he left we'd stay friends, well I don't think not talking for three weeks bar one text message is staying friends

    Thank you. I have asked that the paperwork goes to my GP so when I go back they can see it all and I can discuss any depression issues later. I just need the anxiety sorted at the minute because it's affecting my work so badly.

    The GP said it would be either group or individual but I'm hoping from the telephone assessment it will be clear that group sessions wouldn't help me right now. I just thought everyone would probably prefer 1:1 so might be cheeky to ask
