    Thanks for the replies and insights I will discuss it with my therapist I guess during my next appointment (if I dare to ) to see what she thinks and what my options are.
    Good idea :yep:

    I don't think it's that the doctors don't empathise, it's more that they have other patients who need to be seen, and they're trying to maintain order for them. Otherwise some people might just be late all the time, and it turns chaotic.
    If it's their policy to wait half an hour though, then they shouldn't be trying to turn you away! Glad you got seen in the end
    thank you for understanding. Since it was 11 a.m. I think it was more that they wanted to go to lunch. Sometimes it's a very dehumanizing and demoralizing experience going to the doctor's.

    I feel like I go to college to do **** I'm gonna fail. I go to a job I hate and seem to be hated in. I have a long distance boyfriend with depression who I love dearly but when he has moments I can't help which makes me feel hopeless. I just feel like i am a fat, useless blob who just wants an easy access card through life who sits here feeling sorry for myself or over thinking **** I can resolve but am too lazy to, or physically can't resolve anyway. A close friend have said i should go to a doctor after I told them how i felt but i feel like i will be wasting the doctors time.

    It sounds like you may have an anxiety condition, especially with this fear. Do you believe that there are people in your house coming to murder you. The fact that you are able to rationalise and notice that it is not going on is positive. It sounds like this fear can stress you out, which is possibly bringing on these visual illusions (or hallucinations, not possible to tell completely from this but it sounds more like an illusion). I would speak to your GP, they may be able to prescribe some talking therapy or medication to help with the anxiety. I wouldn't worry that you are experiencing any delusions here, from my personal view it doesn't seem like that is what is going on, however you should check with your GP as I am not your doctor, obviously.

    Yeah, I know the feeling :/ my first ever mental health appointment felt very rushed, and the doctor was clearly trying to catch up some time. I could see why she needed to do it, but it made it much harder for me to open up to her

    I just lost a dear friend to me and it hurts so much, I never thought I'd lose a friend in my life, not like this. The pain is too much to handle.

    Really sorry to hear you've lost someone close. Don't bottle it up- if you want to unload on someone, inbox me. We're all here for you.

    I never thought I'd say this, but I'm actually really relieved to have my anxiety back. After the lows of the past month, at least I'm now able to function, and it feels amazing.
    Of course it would be better to have no issues at all, but I would take this any day (compared to being down)!

    Ill with nerves over this PIP medical tomorrow. Just wish it was over already :cry2: not expecting to get PIP anyway, I'll be lucky to get ESA at a push I think. Glad I have a morning appointment tomorrow at least.

    Wondering if withdrawing from meds was actually a good idea?

    Hugely hypocritical of me to say this, but I'm not sure it is a good idea :no:
