Following a referral from your GP we would like to offer you a Mental Health Assessment appointment…”
Booked. November 5th. Alot quicker than my GP, my councellor or myself had anticipated. And it’s as easy as that!
Where do I start? I believe the assessment followed up by a specialist will generally be about my childhood, upbringing, and from onset of symptoms (10 years ago) until present day. The only problem is my memory is shocking.
I do have significant periods throughout the years where I feel the need to question, but when I look back at them I still struggle to remember details. Much of the past is a big blur, and these events I have conveniently managed to dissolve from my memory for my own protection. Maybe it’s not because I can’t remember these details, but more of because I don’t want to.
Facing the past is tough. I better get working on that.
