Does anybody have any suggestions that could help me? Basically, I struggle to make appointments at the doctors and go to the doctors even though I am in pain or forgetting my medication. How do I make the first step? Just the thought of going to the doctors makes me anxious and it is not enough to know that I am in pain and others would not struggle the same as me, they would just go. I just feel that so many people get to the doctors, sometimes with less issues than mine, so what can I do?People tell me - just go. Doesn't work like that.Any thoughts?
Do you struggle to explain your symptoms? I know often when I've been, i have left things out because the doctor hasn't asked me a direct question. So I come away feeling like I've not got anywhere. There's also the idea that my problem might not be worthy of the Dr's attention. Or I don't realise how bad something is. Yes I agree with others that pharmacist as first point of call. You can also make telephone appointments with doctors too.
