    Get a psychiatrist sooner rather than later. You can do it. Have old gp release your records before your 1st appt.

    surely, you have a contact nmber for our mental heal team or previous cpn. My neighbour feels the same as yourself on occasions and a quick chat with her cpn or team makes her feel more secure. I haven't been on your meds etc., but I would if I ere you give the team a quick ring. hope you feel better soon and sort any problems out regards,

    He sounds awful! Once you're able to, I'd request a different gp if I were you, and I'd state exactly why. As a gp he should know that you can't just stop taking Diazepam, especially after all those years!

    I hope you get on ok with your mental health team!
