like you i hate taking medication sometime we do have to admit that we need a little help ,

my doc keeps trying to up mine i refuse as i want to deal with it not disbuise it all

if after conselling you dont feel any better you can always go back and then try meds .

Good luck tomorrow x


I agree with Bee, nobody wants to take medication, but they could help to support you while you have counselling. If you feel extremely anxious and/or depressed then meds can be very beneficial, not sure what I would have done without them!


Hi Nath, you can discuss this in counselling. Its no a one time offer, if you want to have a go and see if you're strong enough to cope without them good on you, but there is also nothig wrong with adimitting you may need a little extra help too. Just be honest with yourself and reach out when you need to. Your GP can still prescribe meds if you decide it may be a good idea later x


Counselling is would opt for because medication I was on 08/09, sent me dizzy, sick, blurred vision and with look after children my youngest was 4. I took them for two days and done self help.
