unforunately ihavent had much luck with my gp! i was diagnosed when i saw a psychiatrist on a private basis who diagnosed me and then sent a report to my doctor. however i could not see him again due to finances and he lives far away so i went to my doctor as the medication is not helping with my lows and anxiety! my gp is pretty useless and said she cant and wont do anything and has referred me to a psychiatrist so now i am just on a waiting game! i am finding it rly hard and also feel hopeless.. so thank you for your post i really appreciate it.. xxx

Could you try another gp i know that's easier said than done but sometimes we need to shout for help wrong I know for hopefully whilst you wait have a counseler go back to another gp and explain the situation to them as some gps are better than others
Hope you get the support you need soon
