I feel like I can't see a doctor because I have put it off for so long and now there's so much wrong with me that I dont know where to start or how to tell the doctor what's going on. I know some of it will be related issues but there's some stuff that is probably not related to the other issues. what if I mention one thing and then the doctor doesn't realise that I've got other things to say and they focus on that thing for the whole appointment? then they won't think anything else is wrong and it will take me years again to make another appointment and I'll just make it worse because it will happen all over again.
I don't know how to talk to them without them underestimating or overestimating my problems and I'm scared it won't go right. I've never even been to the doctor's before because I don't talk to my parents and I know it's bad but I can't bring myself to tell them anything about me. I'm 16 and I really need to see a doctor about how f/cked up i am.

What problems are going on? Do you feel as though there might be an overarching issue? Usually when you see a GP they deal with 1 issue per appointment. Not always though, I have complex issues and often we deal with multiple things in one appointment, but this is purely because most of my care for each thing is dealt with by various specialists I see.

i think it's likely i have anxiety or something related and I know this can cause things like my terrible back pain and irregular periods but i also know I could be overthinking everything because i've previously thought I had conditions that i realise now is a bit stupid. however there's so much, mentally and physically, I don't know where to start.

If you think it could be anxiety then maybe start with that? Make a note of all the symptoms and anything that makes the symptoms worse (and what makes it better). Book a double appointment with the GP when you make the appointment - it will give you more time to discuss what's going on.
