Exclamation tomorrow.....

im crappimg myself again. help people, i see the new GP tomorrow. god its worse than the last TWO times. this time i have to go in with nothing written out, apparently this time i need to just say it, block out all the restraint and just spill it on the floor. i also have been advised to show her the harm if she asks-i can never tell how thatll go, sometimes i keep hold of myself by clinging for dear life, other times i cant handle it and i physically cant seem to show people. but im preparing myself to just do it, otherwise im cornered back were i started.

im nervous, she will have all my bloody notes, im praying she doesnt get influenced by the other opinions, then theres the small matter of possibly explaining that im not a serial GP head hunter and that before i just was frustrated and she misinterprated what i wrote. theres a very large wall to climb over, if this doesnt work im terrified. i will have to find a new surgury all togther and its so much in just 3 weeks, losing the psych help, losing my docs help, losing UNI counselling(not that big a deal lol), then losing another bloody doc before i even started.i think all means of trusting people then will be crushed to complete dust then. why does the *** fall out of everything i go to do!

well, wish me luck-any tips, how do you get a GP to listen(god thats like a joke ).

Re: tomorrow.....

Zoe gave great advice. Try not to get emotional. Stay calm and slowly put everything on the table. You'll get through this and everything will turn out fine. Let us know how it goes.

Re: tomorrow.....

zoe and lilme know what they're talking about. you have been through this before, pucca. you know what it entails and what you have to do. you don't have to fear the unknown anymore.

like zoe said, 'be truthful and (very) honest," and like lilme said, "put everything on the table." you know this is the way to go, and your chance of being heard. if keira told you to show the dr. the arm and self-harm, do it. it may just work in your favor, and it may show the GP that you are in true need of help and assistance.

is it possible for keira to speak to this GP on your behalf? after you see him/her, that is... i'm thinking that keira can explain more to the GP--more about what's been going on with you; more about your struggles; more about the fact that you DO need help.

pucca--you can do this!!! if you went so long and you battled this so much, you sure as heck can do a bit of talking to a GP!!!

we're here for you, girl!!! break a leg! good luck, good luck, good luck!
hugs from across the pond!

then theres the small matter of possibly explaining that im not a serial GP head hunter and that before i just was frustrated and she misinterprated what i wrote

p.s. if the GP asks you anything about the past, and why you did not stick with your last GP, you can simply say that you did not get the help you needed from the last GP. you can say that she helped you as much as she could, but you feel in your heart that you need more than that, and you just came to a standstill with her. tell the new GP that you are not feeling any better, and you feel that you can't go on being this way; you can't function in daily life, you've began to isolate, you're afraid of leaving your house, you're not doing well at school, etc. --so, that is the reason you are reaching out to him/her.

pucca dear, the more open you are, the more likely it is that you WILL get the help you desperately seek.
