Polter, how exciting!!
To whoever asked on the other thread (terrible memory - I only read it about 30 seconds ago): DS2 coped quite well with the assessment. He was anxious but the fact I was there the whole time helped. They assess several children at once so have them all playing together (or not as the case may be ) and the professionals observe all of them interacting etc.
It was very draining for me. It was great they were very in-depth and asked a lot of questions but it did very much fill my weekly peopling quota very quickly! I'm taking it easy today and sunbathing in the garden just doing a little bit of housework.

Scuse me a moment, just trying to get my breath back after hysterical laughter at the thought of me doing a PhD (currently no qualifications to my name except a handful of shit GCSEs) (assuming you meant me?)
Ugh. I'm currently having major stress waiting for my results from my Access course and worrying/ruminating over email correspondence with a woman in the exams department who I was talking to about the minor invigilation fuck-up in my last exam. She seems to have a major problem with reading comprehension 😒 which is fine but not if you're going to work in that role. Now I can't even contemplate going to the handing-out-of-unofficial-certificates-and-getting-pissed-afterwards thing - was wobbly about it before, but now, just… no.

I meant this bit:
Who handed in a thesis recently... was it austi?
(Can't think who else it could mean, although I'm not too good on names so it could mean someone else)
It's not just one person, this other guy who's been involved in a lot of shit that's gone on was copied in to the whole thing and… well, I can't go into it here but it's all very complicated and embarrassing and the upshot is that this person who's helped me a lot is almost certainly now thinking that I'm an ungrateful nuisance.

I know the thesis was rivier, sorry, I was only responding to MrsN's post.
I don't believe and have never believed I have a personality disorder and have been the lone voice arguing against it. But I doubt myself.
I can't bear being sort-of-but-not-really in contact with people. I like to be either friends or not. Or seeing someone or not. When I finished therapy the therapist told me multiple times that the door was open for me to come back. This was after I decided that I didn't want to go down to monthly appointments from fortnightly appointments, because I like to be either doing something or not doing it. I told the therapist repeatedly that I would not be coming back, at least partly to make it so that I couldn't go back to therapy. I knew that if I said "I will not be coming back for more therapy", it would be too embarrassing and it would turn me into a liar. I hate being a liar. So I said that deliberately to force myself into never going back. I won't ever get those kinds of problems again and I refuse to believe I will need to see that therapist again. She knows too much about me and if I could I would make her destroy all her records.

I cut off everyone I knew from my mental health drop-in that I attended quite frequently and where I thought I'd made some good friends, after the referendum. Some of them had started posting racist stuff. Additionally, I had a new life studying and wasn't going to the drop-in any more, and those phases of my life overlapping felt uncomfortable.

Searched; found this in a BPS document, in answer to a bit about what should happen if a client requests destruction of notes:
It is important to remember that there is a minimum period set down for the retention of records – eight years generally; 20 years in the case of those “mentally disordered persons within the meaning on the Mental Health Act (1983)”. Likewise, litigation may occur some time after your contact has finished. Any destruction of material must be considered carefully if is to be carried out before the minimum time period.
I probably count as mentally disordered. She's got dirt on me for many years to come 😒
