I was advised to go into a&e after months of anxiety which my doctor refused to recognise. I had never experience mental health problems before and felt my life was spiralling out of control. I had struggled for 5 months to try to get treatment from my GP and don't really know what I would have done had I not went into a&e.
I spoke with a doctor on the a&e department and explained my problems. I can truly say it was the first time in 5 months that I felt that someone might actually help me. I am normally a very strong together individual and to find myself in that situation was incredibly difficult. The doctor was fantastic. I understand the time pressures staff must be in working in a&e, but he made me feel that he truly was going to help make things better. He arranged for me to speak with psychiatry that evening. From that moment, I felt that I was moving forward. Its incredible that it only took 1 good doctor to start to give me my life back. Thank you.
