I just wanted to post a my recent experience with my long term and now ex-GP. Feeling at my lowest and my anxiety on overdrive, I somehow found a tiny amount of energy to go to my GP for help. What did he say when I was sitting there facing him?
Here's a list of what he said:
Dr: "Look at me, I have all these patients, I don't get anxiety"
Me: I need something help me sleep
Dr: (does scroll through- eneey meeny miney mo) says "here take this and this, i shouldn't give you this, but take it" (a sleeping medication)
Me: Could i please have a mental health care plan?
Dr: "no, they take too long to write, come back and see me next time".
How is it that a person who has been trusted to save lives, almost crushed mine? GPs like this should be reprimanded in some way?
