ATTMP that was terrible *rolls eyes*
I have been in a real fight with myself not to employ one or another of my old coping mechanisms that were very bad for me due to the levels of anxiety I have had recently. But I think I am winning the fight because I haven't actually done anything that is not good for me, apart from not sleep properly but that wasn't much of a choice.
This morning I thought I would see the support worker and then the psychiatrist this afternoon, but it turns out my appointment with the psychiatrist was first thing in the morning. So I won't see the support worker until Thursday now.
The appointment went well this morning. I told him exactly what I thought of the psychologist who is doing my diagnostic progress, but that I felt I could work with him. And I asked him to look into the possibility of having a conversation with someone to see if I had Asperger. We agree that I would ask the psychologist if the treatment I am working towards with them would still be appropriate if I had it.. and the psychiatrist will look to see if it is possible to investigate diagnosis before the treatment starts. We have another appointment booked for January. This feels like progress.
If Mihaela reads this, then I would be interested to know if there is a reliable online test for someone who might have high functioning female asperger? Or anyone else that might know.
Now I am back in bed resting with my laptop because I still have a cold and I have been awake until gone two o'clock for the last three nights and still got up early every day so I am getting really exhausted. But my anxiety is stopping me from feeling sleepy.. so I am knackered and weak feeling, but wired if that makes any sense at all.
What a ridiculous about of spam we had here! So annoying.
I hope you are all doing well
