I went to the doctors about 6 months ago for the results of a test I had because of my anxiety symptoms. The tests came back fine so I said "Could it be anxiety? How do I get rid of them?"
All the doctor said was "Well it's very likely you suffer from anxiety and I would recommend breathing into a paper bag to overcome your attacks."
Hm, not the best advice. She didn't suggest therapy or medication, just breathe into a bag. So now I feel stupid if I made an appointment to talk about anxiety. The GP's don't seem to care about it or don't take it seriously. I think they think it is a waste of time talking to someone about a mental issue when they can be treating someone with a physical one. This is with an NHS doctor by the way and any future appointments would be with one too.
