I just called the VU. They had their monthly group discussion yesterday and decided that I should go forward to the diagnostic phase.
The waiting list is still 9 months, but they hope to be able to make it shorter.
I'm currently a bit of a wreck - I wasn't expecting the news to affect me this much, in fact I was just expecting it to be a simple call. Guess I was wrong. Still a little naïve about how I react to things I guess. You'd think at 33 I'd be past that.
Time to pick up the courage to call the therapist in Amsterdam...
