I am new to site and have been diagnosed with depression since last September and attending my GP regularly. and on medication - it took me a long time to accept that I had this illness and at the end of April he said he would do a urgent referral to a psychiatrist which he said I needed - on my next visit last week I got so frustrated and felt so desperate I told him I would not bother coming to surgery as he inferred at last app he had done all he could - On reflection I feel that I have been abandoned as I have heard nothing from the psychiatrist and I am doing nothing but cry as I am so desperate - at times I think I am the patient and suffering this horrible illness so surely he should have advised that I continue with appointments until the other team get involved. I feel so lost and so unsure of everything and just dont know what I am to do!!!!!! Life just seem worth it at the moment and even as I write this I am sobbing and in pain!!!! I will stop now because the one this this illness has taught me is that I either am very naive or my expectations are too high before this all started I had not visited a GP for years!!!!
