    I think my problem at the moment is just sitting down and focusing on revision with all the other stuff going on in my head but when I'm in the exam I can focus. Starting to stress about getting all my notes done in time

    Don't start new ones, trust me. This is the second meds that I've tried now and it's so bad my school are putting in mitigating circumstances as an insurance for me.

    I'm afraid I'd say the opposite, if your meds aren't working for you you usually do have to try different ones until you find one which does

    I get what you mean but the side effects can be so detrimental. But then, I guess it's up to the person themselves. I already regret these new meds because I could actually handle my voices until after my exams.

    side effects are awful but I do feel that it can be worth it for when you find a drug that works well for you

    It does take a few weeks though sometimes for you to know if they work. Well, it does for me anyway.

    One of my drs notes said I had been experiencing it for several years, and that it affected my ability to sleep, concentrate etc. But then I have had other drs notes that have been less specific and just confirmed I had X, was taking medication etc.

    Did the first doctor ask you for other doctor's notes in order to be able to write that?

    No, but it was all in my medical records, and that GP had seen me for it during the academic year.

    I'm going to the GP for the first time about my mental health on Tuesday. I have very lovely friends who have offered to accompany me but I'm only going with one. I'm just a bit scared I don't know what to say. I have some of it written down. Can I just give the GP a printed extract of some of my thoughts written down. I'm going predominantly because of suicidal thoughts, an attempt and my rapidly changing mood. It's slap bang in the middle of exam season too so will they postpone me seeing someone till the end? What have been your experiences with your GP and how does the process work?
    Thanks

    Yes you can jst hand them stuff written down, i have a few times.

    It depends how much of a risk you are, they may put through an urgent referral for therapy and such, or may just put you down as a normal referral. Though mental health services are very much a post code lottery, and an urgent referral could take days, weeks or even months, so no one can say how long it will take.

    Thank you for the reply!!

    Oh no. I live in East London, I have a feeling a referral would take ages in my area. Its the worst it's ever been so I am a bit scared and I just want it to stop now. I'm in a relatively good mood at the moment though which leads to me appearing confident and chatty. I've just come to the realisation that i'll probably end up feeling a bit **** again if I don't get help. Will this reduce the likeliness of me being taken seriously?
