Today I went to see the GP. I haven’t been to this doctor’s surgery before and so just accepted the first appointment available and I ended up seeing a locum. I explained how I felt and very briefly mentioned what had happened to me. I told her that I had been really struggling with my emotions and especially worried as I keep thinking that the only answer is suicide. I tried to be as open and honest as I could and as a result she prescribed me an anti-depressant and asked me to make an appointment to go back next week.
I really don’t know about taking any tablets. I think that I am feeling this way because of what happened to me and not because of being depressed (think that’s a symptom of, not a problem in its own right). However, after a lot of thought I have decided to give the anti-depressants a go as I don’t think I could feel much worse than I do now so why not?!
