• Hi - if you have tried to donate and found that it hasn't worked please can you hit me up in PM? (Freya) I am trying to figure out with paypal what the issue is and they are asking for more data. It doesn't seem to be affecting everyone. Thank you so much :)
  • Hi - It is possible that I have figured out part of the problem with the donations. I believe that if you try to use paypal balance or your debit/credit card that should work now. Bank transfer still seems glitchy. If you try with a card and it fails please can you let me know? Fingers crossed that part is resolved though. Thanks so much for the support - Freya

I have finally managed to get an appointment to see a doctor. However, I think the doctor I usually see has left. Everytime I ring up they say she's not there. This is a blow because I really connected with her and I felt that she didn't judge me. I am extremely nervous about seeing the doctor I have booked in to see tomorrow. I don't know if he will be as supportive. I have seen him before and he always comes off as very brash. The anxiety is now getting to me. I don't know if I can hold on until tomorrow.

Deep breaths.
Now, write everything down that you want to say to your doc so that nerves don't have you leaving without getting what you came for.
If he is brusque or dismissive, say so.
It doesn't have to be challenging, or degenerate into a row, just calmly state you are feeling cut short or whatever his attitude is invoking.
Yes, bravery needed I know, but remember they are just people and should be doing their job; not hustling people out the door unsatisfied...or worse not treated properly.
Good luck.

I couldn't agree with this more. The one place that you should never worry about what you say offending someone is in the doctor's office. Be direct, straightforward and upfront. If you believe he's short or dismissive, say so. He will respect this. If you can't connect with him, say so and he'll find you another doctor to meet with.

I'm just really frightened and scared. I've been out of meds for 2 weeks cause I haven't been able to get a sooner appointment. I don't want to be told off. I don't want him not to listen. It's happened before I don't want it happening again.

No dazzle. My parents don't know about this and all my friends live quite far away from me and it would be too short notice to ask them now. He won't bully me but I don't know how it's going to be. I'm so worried.

There are a couple of cognitive distortions going on here..1)jumping to conclusions 2) Magnificaation 3) Emotional reasoning.. These can be debilitating..I agree you should write down what you want to say..That way you don't forget anything by freezeing up..I wish you the best..
