    So, around a year ago, I went to my GP about panic attacks I had been getting, and she didn't really believe me, I've had anxiety all my life, but recently it's become so much worse.
    I had a uni presentation last week and it went absolutely horrendously, I was shaking, my voice went shaky and it was so obvious to everyone how awful I was I was kind of proud of myself for doing it though If you have anxiety you will understand how hard it is to even try xx

    At the moment I'm really struggling with depression and I feel like I have no one to tell and get help with it. I've never been diagnosed but the one time I did, I got dismissed and I can't do anything. I don't know what to do (

    First thing to try is booking an appointment with another doctor and expressing your concerns make it clear that you didn't feel like the other GP took you seriously.

    Go to a different GP. Mental health is just like anything else at GP's-they are General Practitioners so they know a bit about most things but some are better at certain things than others-so you might have just got a bad one. You could also try asking if there is a GP that's more knowledgeable or understanding about this and ask if you could see them.

    Second option is go to the support services at your uni. Every uni will have them, (I seem to live in mine but there we are) and they will know more about helping through presentations or exams or other work than a GP might.

    I understand what you say about knowing how hard it is to try, if you want to talk to me about anything you can. But either way its good that you are seeking help and remember you don't need to suffer alone.

    Of course you can do something. Sometimes coming a second time, might be sufficient to show, that it is not just "a phase/bad day". What is important, that you explain, how it is affecting your life, because that helps to get help. And then, as the other one suggested, there is allways the possibilities to change doctors. Taking someone else with you is also an option.
