Very sad but doesn't surprise me. Back when my SA kicked off in 99 I went to my docs they threw antidepressants at me which I was too scared to take for the exact reason as has happened here, I was referred to CBT I'm still waiting 20 years later. Luckily I am 90% better and this stage thanks to self-help books and time, time really is a great healer. But yeah that's the quality of service you get on the NHS

It has to be said the quality varies across the UK. Here in Wiltshire it took one appointment with a pdoc in October 2018 for a referral for an autism assessment to be made. By mid May 2019 I had a diagnosis.

That contrasts with the incompetents in Essex who never took me seriously when I raised the subject. They also had no idea of how badly I was coping . I get much more support here than I ever got in Essex.

Yes a lot of it is due to being near my stepdaughter and having her in my corner. Having said that good mental health care shouldn't be dependant on having family/stepfamily in your corner . For some that is not possible, and as a result they get substandard help and treatment.
