I arrived for my first appointment shrivelled up, a mere speck of my former self. I had spent 6 years searching for the help I needed and had come to the end of my tether, I had given up. I no longer had the strength to search further and was hoping that perhaps The Lord could see how tired I was and see fit to call me home.
Then I met Caroline for CBT and I learned there is a cure for this. It even had a name "PTSD".
Little by sometimes very little but always with encouragement, empathy, explanation that I could understand, a light started to shine.
After 10 weeks of CBT, I was deemed suitable for a "mindfulness" 8 week course to be HSE funded and given by Dr. Martin and Andrea.
I have no words that could expound the virtues of having the opportunity to be receiving CBT and Mindfulness together. Dichotomies of each other, I felt something lift, I felt joy and excitement again for the first time in years.
Thank you HSE for providing these therapies for me. I so so so so hope that they both are available to one and all who are experiencing "Invisible Illness"
I know that without them, I certainly would not be able to write this as only my former self could do that.
