I wondered if anyone could give me any advice on going to a doctor for anxiety. I went once before a few years ago and i got sent straight to counselling, but it didnt help and i think medication is a better option for me. I'm 16 from the UK and although i can go to a doctor alone, i do not have access to my medical numbers because my parents keep those.
My parents also know about my anxiety but we're not particularly close so i find it difficult to talk about these things with them.
I also cannot talk on the phone because of anxiety so i cannot make an appointment that way.
Any help would be much appreciated because, after about 4 years, it's got to a point where it's taking over my life.
