Unlimited NHS therapy

Hi,

I've been offered unlimited NHS therapy and this makes me feel very guilty as i know most people have time limited sessions and I'm struggling to accept I deserve what they are offering me.

I say go for it! You not doing it won't help other people who can't do it if that makes sense? If you feel it could be beneficial for you I'd definitely allow yourself that opportunity. You do deserve it. I wonder if you could talk to your therapist about the guilt feelings?

My opinion is take what you can get and just try your very best with it. Don't feel guilty, you're just as deserving as anyone else.
Some people may get jealous or frustrated but that's down to the poor state of services at the moment, not to you.

Good luck with it lovely.

Thank you both, I really appreciate that.

I'm going to work really, really hard as I know I'm incredibly lucky to have been offered this opportunity. I will certainly try and discuss my guilt feelings with her. I don't want to be in therapy forever and want to do this once and for all. They said I have a bright future ahead of me and they truly believe I can get better.

Don't feel guilty, you obviously need it and its clear you'll work hard. I'm in/was in open ended therapy and it's helpful to know that it will be a joint decision to finish working. Also it takes the worry away and you can work at a pace that suits you. but yeah, no need to feel guilty =]



sticks and stones may break your bones but words can tear your heart out.

Thank you all so much for your kind words. I definitely won't waste it and going to work my absolute hardest. I don't want to be in and out of therapy forever and I've been given this opportunity, I'm going to try so hard to get my life back.

Another thing that's been on my mind, since my diagnosis with PTSD 4 years ago, I haven't been able to cry. I can't even cry if I watch the saddest film, I couldn't even cry at my uncles funeral and worried what's going on. I don't really feel connected to my emotions at the moment and it's difficult to understand why or to get my head around. Does anyone have any advice as to why this happens?

Thank you all again for your kind words x

Hugs I can so relate I was numb for years . I cry sometimes but it took years. I still spend much of time feeling nothing and so dead. The hardest part for me is people assume I am ok when it could not be further from the truth. Sorry hijacking this. Thinking of you xx
