Looking after ourselves

Re: Supporting my wife who lives with Borderline Personality Disorder while maintaining self care.

@Determined πŸ™

Have you made GP appt?  

Gentle encouragement to persist in finding a counselor/ therapist that is a good fit for you.

Re: Supporting my wife who lives with Borderline Personality Disorder while maintaining self care.

Thanks @Darcy 

Need to call in first thing tomorrow for an appointment. Hoping I can get one this week. Usual gp can be hard to get into but don't really have the capacity to explain everything to someone new. 

On a positive note, went to church this morning and message was so relevant and encouraging. Day at a time at the moment.

Appointment made for tomorrow @Darcy 

Called first thing this morning and initially could not get it until next week with Dr of choice :-(

Called back an hour later to book in with whoever I could get and was offered an appointment with Dr of choice. 

This is a huge relief as I was not looking forward to explaining everything to someone I did not know.

Meeting with student support today at the uni.

Trust these appts are  productive Bro.

Re: Supporting my wife who lives with Borderline Personality Disorder while maintaining self care.

Getting your own doctor is one of those little but important Godsends. Hope it all goes well.

Re: Supporting my wife who lives with Borderline Personality Disorder while maintaining self care.

Not doing well at all at the moment @Darcy 

Safe and no risk of any harm (don't want to alarm or worry anyone) but really depressed atm and feeling useless.
