Today I was meant to be seeing the psychiatrist but having had NO sleep last night, and my IBS playing up something chronic I was forced to leave them a message on their answering machine informing them that I couldn’t attend my 4pm appointment. I had to leave a message as they never seem to be able to pick up the phone in fact it once took me over a week of calling daily before I could speak to someone!
So imagine how pissed off I was when I get a phone call at 3.20 asking why I haven’t arrived for my 3pm appointment!
The appointment was for 4pm I know this because I wrote it down while I was on the phone to them arranging an appointment for that specific time!
Then when I told them about the message I left all I get is “oh, they haven’t picked it up then”
And you wonder why we have little faith in our mental health services!
Besides these issues my IBS has been terrible today, I have lost count of the number of visits to the toilet I have had to make today but as an example I had a sandwich earlier and had to go toilet 5 times in the space of an hour after eating it!
So depression is getting its ass kicked but anxiety and IBS are returning – this is just my luck!
