I have been having some problems for about 7 years (since i was about 14) now and I told my new husband I think it's anxiety and certain things trigger it and he convinced me to see my GP. I feel this was the right thing to do because I would like some help with it, my GP agreed about the anxiety and refered me to a mental health doctor because I said talking therapy would be okay but i'd be too nervous to take medication. I got an appointment which was a month away and I was fine but now that month has passed and it's only two days away I'm quite nervous and worried!!
My GP said it will be "very intense" although he did say they can help...but he said perhaps CBT or psychotherapy (at least I think he said psychotherapy I honestly don't remember because I was so nervous talking to him about it!)...I've googled this stuff and done ALOT of reading but still I'm not really sure what to expect :/ apparently the appointment is to discuss the referral and treatment options.
Has anyone else had the same kind of referral? I just want some idea what is going to happen?? I know this sounds really daft but I'm scared they'll think I'm crazy or something and institutionalise me!! My husband says not to be daft because its just some anxiety and that I am not a danger to anyone (I'm not lol) so they won't but I guess I'm just worrying and wanted to talk to some people who had been through the same
Thanks very much for replys
Sorry if this is a bit rambley x
