The two assessors from the crisis team who came over to assess me just left a little while ago. Our session went much better than I had expected. I had my mum with me so she could speak for me when I couldn’t which was pretty much the whole time.
When they first arrived I was very anxious, I even had a mild panic attack just before they came to my house (I say it was mild because I was hyperventilating, feeling sick and my head went funny but compared to other panic attacks I’ve had this one was mild)
They were here for just over an hour but they were very patient and listened to everything my mum and I had to say and they actually took me seriously! which was a relief. As I grew more comfortable with them I began talking more and being honest with them.
I will not be put into hospital but they do see that I need help so they are going to write up a report on me and send it to the right people (i.e. my current counsellor) they’re hoping to get me more regular and consistent help instead of just seeing a counsellor once a month.
I feel better after talking to them but the anxiety has drained me so I am super tired right now. I think once I’ve eaten dinner I’m going to go to bed and have an early night (if I actually get to sleep)
