    i wasnt when i went in to Belmont and truthfully it cost alot of money because we weren't but my dh was at his wits end with me and we were desperate. After that we joined private health and had to wait 3 months for psychiatric to kick in and then i attended a mental health day program for anxiety at buderium private hospital twice a week. It was amazing at learning ways to deal with my anxiety. I still have the workbook somewhere which was brilliant if you would like me to send it to you. I am in Brisbane (paddington) if you ever want to make a friend that went through something similar....

    You don't need to have ph but it will be expensive. Call the hospital and ask about a self funded admission if you think it's something you are in a financial position to manage.

    Default Scared to be alone

    My suggestion would be to go back to your GP to discuss. They should've able to arrange for you to see someone earlier than April. Ask to see both a psychologist and a psychiatrist. Tell them how unwell you are and stress how quickly you need to see someone. There are psychiatrists that specialise is post-natal care. I see one in Adelaide myself for my anxiety issues. As for hospital stays, you usually need to be assessed by a psychiatrist to get admitted and there are options for people under the public system.
    I have experienced severe anxiety myself and have had to navigate the system myself. Please remember that it gets easier and there are people that can help - just ask your GP. Feel free to pm me if you need to talk

    Default Scared to be alone

    First of all, how horrible to be going through this op, i feel for you.
    I agree with pp's that you need to see someone sooner than April!

    I see a psychiatrist for panic, anxiety and when I first started seeing him he gave me some workbooks from here:
    http://www.cci.health.wa.gov.au/resources/consumers.cfm

    There is one on health anxiety and one on panic attacks. Those are the two that I worked through.
    In the meantime while you try to sort out seeing someone, you might like to have a look at some of those info pax.

    I hope you are on the path to feeling better soon!
