We all get weeks like this I'm sure - I've been pretty hysterical and vocal with the CMHT. I'm incredibly frustrated I don't even have a working diagnosis yet, so I asked my care co-ordinator outright for her opinion. She thinks complex trauma and high functioning ASD. And you know what, just hearing her say those words gave me some reassurance and calmed me down because at last I felt someone was hearing me.
I had an interesting session with my couselor. We talked about OCD, anxiety and fear. I never viewed myself as having these things in any great degree before, but actually... You know when you get those enlightening moments in therapy, well, this was one of those sessions. And again, I felt that I was being heard properly for the first time in my life and somebody was at last helping me to understand myself better. It's incredibly empowering and such a relief, I can't explain just how much.
Blogging is an amazing concept so here I am giving it a whirl. You'll get words. You'll get pics. Sometimes a vid or two. You'll get tongue in cheek, the odd humble opinion and an honest insight into my travels and writing life. Maybe even a few gems along the way. I'll be musing on home turf as I see more and more of the UK and sharing my experiences further afield on holidays and adventurous trips across the globe.
