Thank you all so very much for your advice, support and encouragement. Apologies for not having responded sooner as the last few days have been very crazy. My son is going ok, he sees his psychologist for the first time this week and I am definitely looking forward to the outcome.
He still attended his appointment at Headspace on Friday but no more mention was made about having to give up going there because of the psychologist. Outside of that, I’ve noticed some encouraging signs within my son. He’s smiling a little more, engaging with others a little more and probably believing in himself a little more.
Ive mentioned to him to think about things that make him happy and positive, martial arts being one of them. So now, he’s attending the classes more regularly and putting that before a shift at his part-time job.
As a parent, I still worry of course but every small positive step is a small celebration. So that’s where we stand at the minute.
Thank you all so very much again for engaging with me and offering me your support. I look forward to continued communication with you on this journey. I am also here for you as an ear and support should you require it.
With best regards to you all
