It’s official. Dbt is not going ahead, and it all comes down to resources. I don’t know where to begin to describe how I feel right now, the words I have aren’t big enough. Angry, disappointed, let down – they don’t come close. I’m in ribbons.

I knew this was coming, but I still can’t quite believe it. I’ve waited 8 months. I’ve been told time and again that this is the best thing for me, the only thing that really helps with bpd. To have that hope taken away at the 11th hour is beyond cruel. I realise that this is not my psychiatrist’s fault, and I do genuinely believe that she has done everything in her power to make this happen for me, but right now, that does nothing to change the fact that I’m further than I’ve ever been from getting the help I need.

I have no words.

  1. That’s terrible that you’re not getting DBT right now. I’m so sorry. I hope something happens so that you will receive DBT soon. Crossing my fingers for you. <3

  2. My heart goes out to you. The lack of mental health support in real terms in this country is beyond appalling, it is life threatening. Please hold on, you will find a way through this. I will ask the candidates in the Carlow/Kilkenny constituency what are they going to do.
    Love and best wishes.
