Despite making several complaints about the treatment that I am supposed to be getting from the kings road clinic and having had a meeting with a Patient Experience manager and colleague and a telephone conversation I am still waiting for therapy for my EUPD to start.
I have been under this clinic since february 2016 and all I have had treatment wise is tablets. I was told in feb it would be a 7 month wait for psychological treatment after seeing the psychologist in august he has now moved the goal posts by telling me that the main objection is to get an alcohol intervention done before starting on 6 sessions of anger management which could have a waiting time of 18 weeks. ( WHAT use is 6 hours of anger management to me) ) if this is the case then it could turn out to be over 52 week wait for treatment from time of referral in jan 2016.
I am disgusted that only being given 50 minutes to explain my life and he tells me lets get the alcohol sorted out first. I disagree with the whole report that I was sent I know my body more than he does. for the last 3 weeks I have been in total meltdown because I am not getting any help from anyone I have considered taking my own life as I just can't handle it anymore ( I will not ring the kings road clinic as I told you before I have no trust in anyone there ) I find my care co-ordinator is about as much use as a chocolate teapot because they have done nothing for me they have not offered me any other form of counselling or offered to get me onto the steps programme as I was told would be sorted out for me. He told me a month ago I had an appointment with the psychiatrist soon and I would be getting a letter but I still have not received the letter.
None of you people seem to care because your not the ones who have mental health issues you don`t have to struggle with the thoughts of maybe today I will kill myself because I just can`t cope anymore. I can`t access any other form of counselling because I am under the mental health team my life is in your hands. I can honestly say I think my mental health has got worse since I have been under the kings road clinic. I am now in a position where the twig in my head is at breaking point. I think the whole mental health system is failing people big time and it is not fit for purpose.
