So - apparently the original psych referral was already sent to the PCT for a funding consideration. And was rejected. It was rejected because the guy wrote a shit referral that basically suggested that I wasn't certain about transitioning yet. It was also rejected because I've had relationships with men and a woman. And it was rejected because I have depression/the psych said I've suffered some stress at work. AND it was rejected over concerns about my turners syndrome. I guess some people consider it an intersex condition but (sorry for the TMI) my puberty was monitored by my doctors as I developed through puberty. I had a perfectly normal female puberty and have a perfectly normal female reproductive system (where the geneticist suggested that I was unlikely to have any fertility issues).

The positive side  - the general psych at the clinic is reapplying for me and will do her best to counter some of issues. She's happy to put forward a diagnosis of gender identity disorder but I am under orders to get my depression dealt with. So I have booked an appointment with my GP to go and get myself on anti-depressants.

So - proper diagnosis and getting treatment for my depression. Not quite sure what I'm going to do if I get rejected again. But I really can't think about it, or I'd spin into a horrible spiral of even worse depression.

After being quite chipper this afternoon after my appointment I am now not doing so great.
