I was just diagnosed today – I still can’t believe it. Such a relief to just know. I went to my GP last September and was told there are no services, but I knew it was possible to be referred to the national service at the Maudsley so I requested that and was seen initially in April by the nurse and today by the doc. So 9 months in all.
I was happy to wait as lived with this a long time and wanted to go to the best place. It was tempting to go private-who wants to wait!! Not us right? But I didn’t know where to go so decided to wait it out. Not been the best year, but feeling hopeful now things are going to start to get better. Good luck to all.
