i'm depressed if i make an appt with the gp there won't be an appt for 4 weeks, last 2 times i saw her i waited 2 hrs after the appt time in a crowded surgery can't face that

then what is the gp going to do one gp said it was money worries and my ill mother, i'm not sure if pills are the answer to that, though the gp said what's under our control

guess it's too late to make an advance appt anyway tonight

going to a and e again long wait just to be sent home, my nearest a and e is a long journey a taxi would cost a lot, not even sure where my nearest one is since they closed the last one, my neighbour uses a different one though thats physical isssues

Do you have a crisis support number in your area? I use them when I feel this way and no other options. They feed back into your GP too so could help with you getting an appointment?

i have the central point of access for services, last time i phoned they said they'd closed my case, can't see much help from them

was watching panorama about adult social care some seem more in need than me and even then the reason most of them ended up getting care are the cameras were rolling

maybe i should wait until i'm in that situation before moaning, i'm not getting any younger

You could drowning in 6 inches of water and someone else 6 feet, you're both drowning..... you both deserve and need support ♡

Well those people mustn't have much experience of living on benefits, and they certainly don't know what it is like to be you
