    I got involved with a very toxic and phsycologically abusive girl who i became obsessive over and it was very bad for my health. I know it sounds petty but it honestly was a horrible experience that I'm still struggling to understand

    Would venting my head out to a doctor be a good or bad idea?

    Yes. They may be able to help you see someone you can speak to, like a counsellor.

    Yeah I would like that but it's just like going to a GP about a social issue just feels awkward

    They are trained to deal with these sorts of things. I suggest you go.

    Is a GP the best path or would I be better off fessing up to my family or even teachers?

    clearly this is affecting your health... it is as valid as breaking your leg... the doctor will not mind.

    A GP, 100% over those other options. A GP is bound by a policy of confidentiality. They have experience. Your teachers are normal people - it's unlikely they have come across such things and it would probably be something they have to pursue considering the abusive angle. Parents would be like 'what?!' and blow it up.

    Yeah your right. I'm quite a self contained person even letting my best friend know was a mountain to climb but I guess I'm just going to have to force my self, I have exams coming up and I need a clear mind. Thanks for the advice

    if its affecting your mental health, your gp is a totally viable and good option. they cannot tell anything you say to them to anyone unless they believe that you are at risk of hurting yourself or others - so it is all confidential.
    they can refer you to other services that can help you better, but your gp is an excelleny first step and i recommend it.

    im sorry to hear about your experience by the way, op. i hope youre doing okay and that things look up more soon. hang in there, man.
