    I passed the exam I took a couple of weeks ago. Got 83% on the part I had to pass, not sure what I got in part that goes toward degree classification but that part doesn't matter anyway. Also don't know what the pass mark was which is annoying but hey, I've passed, time to focus on the other four exams I have.

    Of course you can do that. Last time I saw my psychiatrist I refused to talk at first and made her read a whole A4 sheet of writing

    Went to the doc today. Hated her too. She just kind of didn't seem to care, and wanted me out of there as soon as possible . But she diagnosed me with moderate/severe depression :/ and put me on Citalopram 20mg. I've heard the side-effects are horrible, I'm dreading them.

    -----

    Does anyone have any experiences on Citalopram? Or any advice as to the best time to take them?

    Thank you, the pass mark is likely to have been 70-75% and it was multiple choice (evil multiple choice with more than one correct answer and you have to choose the most accurate) but I'm happy with it

    Sorry she wasn't much help either, although the diagnosis does sound more akin to what you are experiencing.

    I was first put on Citalopram too - it seems to be the go-to drug when doctors first diagnose depression. I had headaches and nausea but that was about it on the side effects front! I can't remember when I took them - the pharmacy will be able to tell you though if you ask them, when you pick up your prescription.

    Is this GP gonna write to your uni/did she provide any written evidence that you could produce to uni? Unfortunately these things always have to be in writing for unis to take it seriously :grumble:

    Must of missed your post. What did you say to the crisis line?

    Maybe its a good thing. Your nurse or the hospital maybe able to help you in a way that others can't?

    I need to go speak to my tutor tomorrow and let her know what happened. I asked the doctor, but she had no idea what to write in the letter, so basically told me to go to my tutor and ask what she wants and then go back to the surgery and tell them and they'll write me one. Thanks for the advice .

    MCQ tests are just awful in my experience. You get like 5 answers and they are more or less identical :nothing:
