getting a bit hacked off...

Posted by alexandra_k on September 20, 2005, at 20:32:44

oh yes indeed i am.
so i'm trying to get some psychotherapy from community mental health
and they keep saying that they don't have anyone willing to work with me
but there is this little thing called a 'right to treatment'
and they have refused to fund external treatment
so i keep making noises about wanting to be informed of my treatment options from within the service (there is this little thing about the client having the right to be informed of the available treatment options) etc etc and on and on it goes and round and round and f*cking round i go with them...

so i get this assessment where a dx is made and there is a treatment recomendation. they won't do the reccomended treatment (external funding declined). but in the assessment there is also a cautionary note that it is NOT helpful for me to be delegated out to see registrars who are only going to be able to offer me a couple months before they move on. that that only serves to reinforce my dissociation.

so what do they do? they delegate my case out to a registrar who is only going to be here for 2 months.

in the appoitment with him he keeps going on about spending a month to find out if someone from within the service will work with me...

i keep telling him that we have been there done that and there isn't anything. my old p-doc tried and couldn't find anyone.

he won't accept what i have to say and says it will take one month to contact my old p-doc because he is on leave.

so that night... i email my old p-doc to tell him to expect an email from this registrar.

i get a response the next day

(on leave my *ss)

and now... i've been told i have an appoitment to see a p-doc in a couple months, once he returns from leave

and i don't believe he is on leave
and i'm pretty pissed off...
and maybe i'll try and call him...
maybe i will
getting pretty pissed off.

my current t (uni councellor)...
things aren't going so well.


and now i feel a bit better...
