Duty psychiatrist

CARL58CARL58 Member Posts: 178 Courageous
Hi took CARL58 to see duty psychiatrist, due to severe flashbacks one would finish & another would start, can't recall what he gave him but it was only 1mg & dark blue waited 10mins, CARL58 mentioned he could feel it quietening him down,like a soft sea wave,nice youngish psychiatrist.i asked why he's not had treatment for flashbacks, there's no real treatment talking about trauma, counselling can help,in CARL58 case it's very difficult as Androphobia (fear of all men) is actually so real to him,you can see he's absolutely terrified of me,take him home keep a close eye on him,if it starts again call the GP out explain yove seen me, I'll fax across my observations,that was it really jen

    Hi,

    I'm glad things are being sorted. It would be easier for those reading your posts if you could stick to one thread, rather than starting multiple ones. It does get rather confusing when reading so separate threads and not knowing which one to reply to.

    I think it’s helping @CARL58 through the flashbacks of that helps when he experiences them..think of them as big wave
