Stood up

I was stood up by my case manager/CPN today. I sat at the coffee lounge, nursing my ever growing cold coffee and left after 20minutes. No phone calls, nothing.

I probably didn't need to see her anyway. But being stood up, well, that kinda hurts.

Maybe she's away sick, or maybe she broke her ribs again, but someone should have let me know.

I hope the anger kicks in soon. Right now, I feel sad and abandoned.

I know exactly how you feel because I had a period when my therapist didn't turn up for my sessions (3 weeks on the trot) and it didn't do a lot for my self-esteem or my mood. I hope you feel better soon.

I cant believe how rude these therapists are! they could at least have given you a call..

Dont feel bad about it Polar! dont take on board their bad manners!

I hope there's a good explanation, like a miscommunication or something.

That sucks - I know that feeling well from my old therapist. How do they expect you to trust them when they can't even keep an appointment?

Thanks all, for your support.

Not my therapist - V would never do that. The person who stood me up was my CPN (Community Psych Nurse).

Are you 100% sure your appointment was "today"? I've done that before, sat there and waited, then felt embarassed and skulked out - only to later realise I had the wrong day. :( You absolutely must say something next session - to get the grovelling apology if its due!

I once had an appointment with a neurosurgeon that was cancelled without me being told. It was a 2 hour drive to get there. I was pissed.

PB: I took I'm Listening down for the time being because of the shrink issue.

That's awful. Shows lack of empathy and professionalism too.

Sorry that happened to you.
