Considering right after this my ex abused me, then I had to flee town, now I...

    How to ask GP for Lorazepam without sounding like I'm drug seeking?

    I have an appointment on Monday with GP and need to get a proscription for Lorazepam because I'm getting quite agitated at little things, I was previously on Lorazepam after leaving hospital and haven't used any in a while. Would it sound like I'm drug seeking just coming out saying I need it?
