"Out Patient Service"

I have been in adult services since I was 17, little earlier than normal.
I feel my treatment has always been variable, but small positive changes seemed to have started to be made. However, the hard work and effort which I had put into help the service seems to have been thrown back in my face, AGAIN!
I currently have had appointment after appointment cancelled and I have felt my mood slowly slipping and my anxiety getting worse after each cancellation. I have then been told that because I moved for a few months that there had been confusion when I had moved back and letters had been sent to my old address (despite me having have paid for a redirection service). I felt like I was being accused of lying. I have finally had a new appointment made after not answering properly if I could keep myself safe. If I say yes then it's not deemed an emergency if I say no crisis breaks out and I'll find myself back in hospital quicker than I can blink.
I think it's awful that as you get further on in your treatment, cancellations don't seem to bother professionals as much. I'm not fully recovered as if I was I wouldn't be in services, or feeling low and depressed as I am doing with feeling undervalued.
