why are you scared? i bet she'll be lovely!

Titania Wed 15-Jun-05 15:49:56

just something new....letting someone into my house....where im safe....something else to deal with....

starlover Wed 15-Jun-05 15:51:04

well, i hope it all goes ok. don't do what i used to, and just say "no, everything's fine".. i never got any help because i used to lie and say i was ok!

Titania Wed 15-Jun-05 16:10:33

ive spent the past 24 years saying that....

It is a great step forward Titania! You have been waiting for this moment for a long time. You are bound to be nervous, but try to see beyond that to the help she might be able to give you.

what exactly do they do??

Lonelymum Wed 15-Jun-05 17:52:05

I don't exactly know The one i saw last week for my phobia mainly asked me questions about my family and how I felt about my phobia, and one or two questions aimed at finding out if I was depressed. When she decided I wasn't depressed, she said there was nothing she could do for me, but pointed me in the direction of some charities that could help. I think a CPn could probably help you more.

right ok. thanks. i have been struggling the past few days and embarrased myself crying on the phone to her when she rang

I would say that was a pretty good indication that you need her! Did she sound nice on the phone? That would make all the difference.

Titania Wed 15-Jun-05 18:02:11

erm.i think so... she was really polite and kept saying 'ah bless ya'....

starlover Wed 15-Jun-05 18:11:39

titania crying on the phone is good! it means that she already knows that you aren't "ok"...
i really hope it goes well for you. I never met my CPN.. she called me once and she had a really strong irish accent and i didn't know what she was saying
