Sorry if i look a bit cheeky signing up and posting a long post. I'm pretty desperate. After a long wait with delays in medical questionaires, docs sending them to the wrong places and forgotten information, i've just gotten the letter to say i'm deferred for a year for something I do NOT have, which is social anxiety. I accept that because i went to a child and adolescent mental health counselling service, and attend a pupil referral unit that takes in bullied and school phobia kids, along with ill kids and does home tuition that it might look like i've been a bit depressed. But i've never ever had a major problem just typical teenage years if that makes sense. I'm going to appeal, since my hopes of harrogate have been dashed if i have to wait a year (i will be 17.3 years ) Can someone give me some kind of heads up on what to include in my appeal and how to go about it. I know i must get a letter from my doc but is there anything else i could include. And should i ask my doctor to say i don't appear to have this? there was not much information on my letter about appealing at all. ANY help at all i'm really grateful PS I have NEVER been officially diagnosed anxious in any way. Just in the therapists notes.
