Maybe someone out there knows or knows someone who has expereinced something similar to this.
My 17 year old son was dagnosed late with asperges syndroms along with this he has severe social and health anxiety. He never leaves the house and is in his room 23 hours a day or more.
He has had four sessions of cbt at home and was then expected to have the rest at the surgery, because of his anxiety he could not go...so they withdrew the treatment. There appears to be a blanket response to treatment in that someone has to have motivation and attend sessions. How stupid to think that after 4 sessions his anxiety would be at a level that he could leave the house, travel to the surgery and walk into a busy building.
Why do they set people up to fail.
I have spent the best part of the day trying to get hold of the manager for the mental health servises, eventually she did ring me back..nothing gained there.
My point is that my son is not been treated as an individual with his needs taken into acoount, he can not take care of hisself because he can not communicate with others due to his anxiety.
There is so much talk from the government about mental health servises and in paticular for young people, yet in reality its full of confusion, fragmentated and ill equiped to support someone with complex needs.
I know from my own battle with thyroid problems how difficult it is to be heard and here i am again with a different battle.
Your thoughts please
