I have quite a good friendship with my GP and really the only thing I go to seem him for is my issue with migraines; he gave me some new medication a while ago and they worked for a while and have now stopped - this always happens, so I need to go back.
I have spoken to him in the past about anxiety and he gave me a beta-blocker but said it was only temporary but ended up having it for just under a year before he stopped giving it to me. I booked an appointment but ended up seeing a new student doctor who was patronising but sent me to CAMHS for therapy, fast forward 11 months I had my first session which was about a month ago now, and it was a waste of time and nothing happened but she sent a letter to the GP explaining the situation. As I also talked to her about depression.
Which I have briefly brought up (feelings of depression) with my actual 'real' GP but he dismissed it as school related stress (I'm 16, now nearly 17).
I've been feeling depressed every since I started secondary school aged 11/12.
Never felt better and it's got increasingly worse.
I'm going to see my regular GP tomorrow and just want advice on how to bring it up. Depression is worse, anxiety has gotten nowhere.
It's so exhausting and I hate talking about it but it's REALLY effecting school and life as a whole.
