My counsellor has encouraged me to book an appointment with a GP about low moods and other possible symptoms of depression (although she hasn’t said ‘depression’ out right she has hinted at it a lot as I don’t think she’s allowed to really say that) and I’ve finally plucked up the energy and everything to do it after telling my friend who then agreed and it was a massive deal for me but then when I called they said they were fully booked so to call back on Thursday (today) in order to book an appointment for next week and so I did but they’ve said that they’re still fully booked and it just seems impossible to actually book an appointment which is already something I’m doubting and I really don’t know what to
Wholeheartedly with Alexander here - no matter how many times you gotta pick that phone up, just keep trying until you get a booking in. Power to you for making the choice to go for it, you will see a positive end to this if you just keep trying!
It's unfortunate how overbooked and overworked GPs are, and it can be a pain in the ass to get into one if you don't have a family doctor to begin with. Just keep on trucking, see if you can get on a waitlist - make as many phonecalls as possible I know it's tough. *hugs*
