Went to the doctors
« on: November 30, 2011, 10:56:30 AM »

I just wanted a bit of a pat on the back really because I feel like i've been really brave today and there's noone around atm for me to talk to at home. A couple of months ago I made the decision to see a counsellor at  uni who has begun to help me tackle my s/h and the underlying issues surrounding it. With her support i've managed to speak to my gp this morning who has formally 'diagnosed' me as depressed (pending blood tests) and i'll be starting anti depressants in a couple of weeks.

Didn't technically tell the gp about the s/h...but i've been doing really well in tackling that with my counsellor so I figured that was ok?

It's really hard for me to open up in person so i'm really proud of myself for going to the gp as it was really scary. I'm looking forward to getting better now :)

Thank you by the way, everyone on here that's chatted to me when i've been struggling.

:hug1: you should be really proud of yourself isn't an easy thing to do welldone xx
behind closed doors, all is not what it seems,
you only have to realise with one look at me.
to see things that you didnt first see,
like the person i once was-i use to be.
behind closed doors is where it will remain,
now her sanity is gone she is no longer sane.
