Posted , 7 users are following.

i feel devestated and all alone. ive been seeing my previous gp for 8 months who then went off sick (this was 1.5 yrs ago and the gp before this also left and ddnt come back due to illnesi ) we than had lovely gp covering who ive seen twice a month for last 1.5 yrs. she told me today she is leaving as her husband is in the military and they have to move. i feel lost and alone. the mh team have been s**t and my dr gas been invaluable. im now terrified i wont have the same support and feel alone all over again...the loss sldo is so hard to deal with. ive been seeing psychologist over the last yr and feel he isnt that dr has supported me with this too and now i feel im just gonna be so alone.. i suddenly feel extremely low and everything feels bad.

    Hi well you found 2 good gp's so why won't you find another good one? If in doubt ask your doctors receptionist for the nicest most sympathetic one like I did and I found a diamond. x

    Hi k8861, i can see why you would feel so bad. It's hard when you lose the medical support you get. That's what 2 of my counsellors have done and i don't mind saying but this was for assault. When all my support was nearly stopped i made the tough decision to see the male counsellor who worked with my last female counsellor. It's really scary seeing him, he's a male and i'm not! I think once you find a good doctor they should have your notes, it's often a case of finding someone who understands. I can only tell 1 doctor i was assaulted. I now say nothing because my old doctor left, like yours. I can't tell any male doctor and i think my new doctor won't understand. I wish you good luck. Bless you.

    Hello my names Leela.

    It sounds like you need to find yourself a permanent good doctors surgery where there are many good nice doctors in case one drops out. That's what i did.

    I call a supportive helpline like Samaritans or even your doctor. If you feel suicidal you must call the emergency services. They gave me so much love, attention, help and diagnosed me with depression. Now i'm 50 years old and happily on anti-depressants (happy pills) because i didnt have enough happy cells in my brain so i had to top them up. I had to try out a few different ones till i found the right one for me. But I feel much better now.

    You may need to see your doctor again to increase your medicine or try a new or extra medicine.

    Also they let me try out all different kinds of therapy (one to one or group therapy) to help me feel better and learn to love myself and forgive myself for all the mistakes i'd made in my life.

    Many many people would be heartbroken if they knew how you're suffering, including me ! And i dont even know you personally but so many of us feel or felt that same way you do now. So we are all in it together. You are not alone. Just ask for help. Call the emergency services and you will realise just how loved you really people who dont even know you personally !

    Lots and lots of sympathetic hugs from your new friend Leela Davis xxx
