Hey everyone, im feeling sooooooo frustrated at the moment. Ive been to see my new psychologist.... last week after my sessions with my previous pysc had to end, and i cant get back into see her for another month...
This waiting, went you need help now , ****** me off.
Its hard enough getting there, and having such a long break(she only works 1 day a week)makes going back all that more difficult.
This is my fifth psychologist, i guess im just sick of it, i want to be better right now.
thanks guys, just needed to vent a bit
xx CME
 Edit: sorry I had to change a word according to guidlines, i dont blame you for being so angry, vent away.

I understand your frustration.  I know it's so hard to hang on when you have to wait for weeks in between appointments....I've been there, too, and it's tough to keep going.  Maybe you would consider using some other methods while you are waiting, to keep working on yourself and your healing.  There are some great self-help workbooks out there, which pose the right questions to you and guide you towards finding the right answers for your situation.  Also, if you have not already tried it, perhaps you would consider the free online CBT course called the Mood Gym.  There are other members here who have used it and found it valuable:
Stick with us, and share whatever you feel is bothering you, as you are up to it.  We would be happy to listen and respond.  Take care.

Good Morning,  I understand the frustration of having to choose a new therapist and not leaving the care of a Psychiatrist as you cannot find anyone else without being on a waiting list for 5 months.  I have been in your shoes.
I guess that is where great programs like MoodGYM posted by Raniah come into play so well.  They give you the opportunity to continue working on healing. 
There is another online program provided by the same company that I am going to mention here,  E-couch. 
E-couch provides evidence-based information about emotional problems (including depression and anxiety disorders) and teaches strategies that may help you to prevent problems and understand yourself better.
Please do look into either program and give one a chance.  Don't expect a sudden cure but do learn about yourself and how to deal with your issues.
Gentle Hugs

I think that you have gotten some very good advice. There is a lot that we can do to help ourselves while waiting to see our therapists. I go every six weeks. Due to the distance of my therapist.

Another thing to try is meditation. That really helps to center ourselves. Think about giving that a try.

Best wishes to you for a wonderful day.

Hugs, Karen

There is nothing worse than having to wait for an appt. My appt. this Monday was scheduled over a month ago and prior to that it took a month to even get him to see me, since he wasn't taking new patients. My prescribing nurse practitioner didn't feel comfortable with my case, complexity and all and needed me to see a psychiatrist. I live in a relatively small town so it is hard to find specialists to begin with. Best of luck to you.

Moodgym is great- its free and it gives you tools to help control your negative thought processes and helps you face the future head on. it may seem quite simple at the beginning of the program, but as you get further into it, it really starts making sense.

Keep us posted, sending positive vibes your way!
