    ANON OR DELETE PLEAS

    Basically, I had an appointment to see my Dr two days ago, but I wimped out massively and didn't tell him the real reason I was there, sort of lied a bit, tried to actually speak, pretended I was there for something else and left as quick as I could.
    Essentially, my life is pretty ****ed up at the moment, well, not my life but me. I've always had this problem where I can't talk to people (literally, at all. I'll just freeze and not be able to speak, even sometimes with my Gran if i haven't seen her in a while) I sort of got used to it but It's all gone a bit.. strange, I've gone a bit mad (well, not mad as in insane, just..mad as in weird as ****) and spend most of my time crying about nothing like a massive idiot. also started cutting again, but that's something I'd rather the Dr didn't know because no matter what people say it is embarrassing and people will think you're an attention seeker if they know

    Now, I've got another appointment for tomorrow with a different doctor, because I felt like such a **** and I just know that after 19 years it's not a problem that's going to fix itself, however it's the problem that's stopping me getting help with the problem.. bit of a **** up there, me.

    So, really, what I want to know is...what on earth is it you're meant to say to a doctor about this stuff anyway?
    And won't they think it's odd that I'm back after just two days, I don't want them to think I'm attention seeking and I hate wasting their time, it's just that trying isn't working so well for me at the moment.

    Write it all down, take it with you, hand it over, and just let the doctor read it.

    Only problem is that I also need a note from him that says i'm like, mentally stable enough to go back to college otherwise they won't let me back (and soon, too, final exams looming and all that) and I just think that might not really help my case... but I suppose I don't have much other options
    Thanks for the help

    Has anyone here actually given the doctor a letter to read instead of telling them something? I'm just worried he's going to think I'm incredibly pathetic, because at my age I really should be able to do simple things like that..

    Yeah, when I first went to the doctor about depression I am so **** with words so I just wrote everything out and handed it to him. I don't think he minded at all, and it had the added bonus of not leaving anything out which I probably would have done if I'd said it to him.

    I don't think it's a problem, and if it's that or not getting help, definitely go with the written down route.
