      I go to my GP again today. I am stressed out. I have been with them since I moved to this area. I told them everything what I was going through and they just watched me and refused to support me. These people are the manifestation of evil. They are abusers too. I hate them.

      I was directed to a new doctor and she was so understanding. She referred me for my pain and she followed up the counseling and I have a telephone assessment soon. She said that she thinks I have PTSD and I need specialist counseling. I have to tell her about the outcome of the telephone assessment and she wants to know which service will take me on. I was surprised. That was so unexpected after all this long time of gaslighting and neglect. I am not happy yet, I am just watching what happens. I still need this service to signpost me. But that visit was more promising for a change.

      I changed my doctor, and I wondered why I hadn’t done it years ago. X

      I cannot do this so easy. For me it depends with whom I have the appointment. That lady was a new doctor in the surgery. My named GP blocks me from everything. She seems to hate me.
      I always have issues with GPs because I have many health issues, some of them are rare and the GPs do not know much about them.
      I have had eight GP surgeries in ten years. I really want to stay with one surgery where they have all the information about my issues. Always info gets lost and I have the same struggle all over again.

      Ayanna you have an absolute right to change GP. I work with doctors all the time, some of whom I have the most eminense respect for and others who I just do the, “nod and smile” routine then go above their head to get an apropriate plan for a patient. They are absolutely not all the same. Look up the bma, check out their specialities, google them, see what they are interested in. There are many wonderful GP’s out there but I have worked with a great many what I wouldn’t even describe as second rate doctors who are on the GP path for the preferable working conditions. Like I say, that’s not the majority, mine has been very understanding and empathetic and patient. Has now suggested antidepressants which ive been trying to put off but have now agreed to. With a review date already in place to come off if apropriate when I’m in a “better place”. If you don’t like your doctor bin them! Couldn’t reiterate this enough, if your gut is telling you they are no good it’s for a reason! X
