I'll do that next pancake day ;)

Yes that's two docs who have been helpful and I'm wondering what's caused this shift!! I've seen so many docs and often so unhelpful! It makes a nice change :)

That definitely is a nice change!

I get scared going on with problems sometimes thinking they're going to dismiss me. Maybe it's just because I'm used to mental health services more.

I always feel the same way Zoe, it shouldn't be that way should it?

It is. It's so silly because the whole point of a GP is to deal with any health concerns you might have.

Exactly ! Everything for years was poo-poo'd by my mh. One even tried to put my asthma of five years which was controlled by inhalers down as anxiety I mean really?! I had an abnormal gait after slipping two disks and was described as a gait 'not unlike those' you'd find in the local psychiatric hospital. That was by a consultant neurologist though, he had seen on my mri the injury but said there was nothing unusual on it. My physio told me.

It's not acceptable one bit..

Nope. I bet they have to be a bit more wary now after GDPR though because you can get copies of admin notes too, not just those addressed to you.

It happens far too frequently unfortunately , rethink did a campaign a few years back about bringing it into general awareness but not much else came of it!

How are you both today ?
