About 2years ago I developed acute sciatica which to this day inhibits my pain free movement. Shortly thereafter I lost weight and appetite and was then subjected to a number of hospital tests and scans. Fortunately these tests did not reveal any physical problems but attending hospital on my own during the covid pandemic was not easy.
Following completion of the tests, I suffered with anxiety and extreme fatigue and my GP suggested I contact Inclusion Thurrock and latterly prescribed a course of anti depressants.
My experience with Inclusion Thurrock has been positive and to be able to discuss how I feel with an experienced professional was very helpful. As a woman of 75 I did find some of the literature and techniques somewhat difficult to fully understand but I have managed to take on board the CBT requirements and address some of the everyday activities that I had been avoiding. Unfortunately Covid restrictions are limiting my progress to a certain extent.
I still have periods of fatigue and anxiety but I realise that significant lasting progress will take time and there will be setbacks. I am concerned about my ability to keep progressing following the conclusion of our face to face discussions but I will try to keep applying the CBT skills that I have learnt.
