Dr Fitch is the most knowledgeable & credible support for those suffering any kind
d of mental health illness/issue. And as a diagnostician - she outshines ALL.
I've seen a few psychologists & a psychiatrist in my life ... but NONE of them figured out what became obvious to Dr Fitch.
First she diagnosed sleep apnoea & organised a sleep study & cpap machine for me. What a difference THAT made! Finally! A good night's sleep. It'd been years!!!
Then she identified me as having ADHD & helped me understand a lot about my energy levels & how to manage them better.
And finally ... as she got to know me even better ... she diagnosed me, at age 50, as being a high functioning Aspie (Aspergers/ASD). This truly blew me away.
I resisted the diagnosis at first. I couldn't see how it could possibly be me. But with her gentle guidance & suggested reading material, I came to realise she was right & it's changed my life sooooo much.
I now understand so many things throughout my life that puzzled or bothered me.
Most importantly, I finally like myself & understand why I am the way I am.
I'm no longer permanently stressed out & anxious. I understand what's best for me & how to deal with situations I have to involve myself in ... and more importantly, how to look after myself thereafter & deal with the feelings that arise from those situations.
I nap when I need to ... without feeling lazy & guilty.
I stay home & give myself time to recover after having been out & about or spending time with people. I used to think there was something wrong with me ... now I know I just need some time-out to decompress after being overwhelmed by a sensory overload.
I wasn't conscious of any of this before, so I beat myself up constantly.
Dr Fitch has taught me to understand myself better & to give myself a break!
She explained what my brain was doing & used tactile & visual aids so the message sunk in.
Dr Fitch also included my husband in some appointments to help her diagnosis & where she explained EVERYTHING again ... knowing he was my greatest support & also that he needed to know & would benefit from understanding it all too.
I cannot rate Dr Fitch highly enough.
I'm a different person now ... & it's ENTIRELY because of her diagnosis & care.
My normal state is now happy & content.
I still get anxious sometimes when out in some situations ... but I'm no longer overwhelmed 'cause I know I'll get thru it ... & I know how to decompress & look after myself when I get home.
I'm still a bit of a hermit ... but I'm going out more & more.
My husband & I now laugh & joke about my Aspie ways ... which is wonderful. We have a lot of fun with it.
THANK YOU Dr Fitch ... for giving me a life worth living ... & my husband sends a BIG, GIANT, ENORMOUS Thank You as well. We're even more like a couple of young love birds now! = ) …more
