    referal letter

    the gp i saw referred to me as a lass, which i think is inappropriate and said i had a bit of anxiety and depression, making me out to be a over exaggerating. like i am not saying i have the worst anxiety or depression and it has not been going on 50 years, but i dont think it is accurate.
