It's kind of hard to write what is happening but I've been really emotional and tearful lately. About three weeks ago went to gp and in tears, asked if he could give me something to calm me a bit he said no. Today, I'm on my period and having bouts of crying/wailing no stop. I'm with my son this weekend but thanks god he was out with a friend. Besides heavy and painful period, I've been throwing up and diahorrea today, so decided to call 111 to see what I could take (been taking codeine). I got a call back from such a lovely sympathetic gp! If I was in her office I'd have hugged her. She said she knew all too well how hashi felt, and made an appointment at an out of hours gp. I said I didn't want to leave the house because I was embarrassed to be seen in such a state(weeping all through the call) she said it would be good if I went. So I did, they took a urine test (?) and told me must be a virus besides the heavy period. I said please give me something to calm me down. My son will be back home by now and I hate him seeing me like this. GP said he couldn't give me anything. I said I had diazepam before and I needed to be well to care for my son over the weekend said he understood but no nothing he could do. He asked if I had anyone I could call. I said no. He said see your GP Monday how does he know I'll be fine till then? I was in such a state swollen eyes from crying all day, hair not brushed and he sent me home to take care of a child. Then we wonder why bad things happen.
