    I don't know what id say and I've heard lots of people online and irl that claim their doctor just told them they were 'just a bit sad' and to basically get over it. I don't think i could take a doctor saying that to me, it would hit me very hard... help i don't know what to do from here..

    If a doctor tells you that, then they are not a good doctor and you should find another.

    It can be scary to take the first step, I know it was for me. But a good doctor will listen to your concerns and want to help you. It is hard to open up sometimes, but you can tell them how you've been feeling and go from there.

    I am in the same boat i feel like i will be laughed at and told there's nothing wrong with me. I need help tho so i must try i have booked an appointment for next week. i will keep trying until i get the help i need because anything is better than feeling like this. I hope this gives you the strength to do the same.

    Most doctors will not treat you like that so it is best to go and see one. I have seen so many doctors over the last 7 years and they have been supportive,kind and caring. I did see one doctor after an OD who asked me was I looking for attention, I was so angry at him. I told him to change his damn job.
    Please go and see a professional, 99 percent of the time they will be helpful :hugs:

    Sorry but how do you know what really was said in that room between the doctor and the person?

    Just FYI .... I know irl that SOME people tend not want to get the help/hear the facts they need help by painting a picture of a insensitive/horrible incaring doctor to excuse themselves from getting the help they need.
