Obviously I was nervous a little, here I am, female a medical condition, facing a single hour that could shape or halt any positive future I could imagine.
So, as probably expected, sleep was difficult. A mixture of excitement, fear and mild anxiety each taking turns. Exitement won. I arrive 2 hours early, delberately, because for the 1st assessment I made it with minutes to spare - London early morning traffic the cause. Any way, my time keeping meant coffee shops and there are a few outside the clinic. I should have ordered decaf.....Dr Davies saw through the caffiene (I think), made me feel more at ease and comfortable than I could imagine, and accepted me. In the end, the best day of my life so far. I got home and my family (parents and siblings) took me for a meal and fully accepted me for the first time.
Thanks to Dr Davies I feel I had the best day of my life and future is now more positive than I expected.
