I've been really stuck lately with what to do, as I feel I may have depression, but I have severe social anxiety which puts me off going to my GP to ask about it. However, I know to get help that I need to bite the bullet & do what's best, but I don't know what exactly to say to my doctor?
First of all I don't want to exaggerate the situation if it really isn't depression or anything serious at all, and also, if it was, ideally I really would want to be put onto medication, which I have a feeling he won't be keen on. I'm already on a long waiting list for CBT for anxiety, but to pile the (potential) depression on top I just don't think I can carry on life as usual at the moment without some form of help like medication
If I went to my GP, what could I say to convey that I think I may be depressed? I just feel like he's not going to believe it
