Hi Keith, I just thought you should know that today I went on a plane. The biggest thing I had been working towards. I flew from London Heathrow to Leeds Bradford Airport, taking a total of 1 hour. (1h 15 including boarding) It was the most therapeutic thing I could have done. I'm experiencing a rush from facing my fear, like I can do anything. The sheer freedom.
On May 15th, I passed my driving test and recently did a Pass Plus course too. The freedom is unreal and I am constantly out and about doing stuff, without any anxiety or giving it a second thought.
I feel more freedom, not just within the UK of course. This coupled with driving, I feel like a normal person once again. We are now going ahead with the visa application for Australia, and I am now looking to do regular flights to help prepare me for the final flight out there and ultimately, employment.
I am not under CAMHS anymore so I won't contact again, I just felt you should know since you gave me the tools to do all of this. Without you I probably wouldn't have been able to go through with it, you really helped me when I needed it most.
Thank you once again.
