I posted breifly in the introductions section here, but I am going to be seeing my GP soon to start looking at diagnosis and wondered if anyone had any advice about the best way to handle the appointment?
I've been reasearching online and it seems that some GP's can be a bit reluctant to offer refferals and some lack knowledge on the system? I'm really anxious about voicing my concerns out loud to someone other than my boyfriend for the first time and one-one conversations aren't easy for me at the best of times!
I'm 24 years old and have no contact with my family at all (very long and complicated story!) but have my boyfriends full support as he feels there is serious weight to my concerns. We have been together for 7 years so he knows me inside out and has experienced my issues first hand - I read online that sometimes they like to involve family in the process especially re history as a child, but I don't have that available - will that hinder the process?
Any advice or shared experience would be greatly appreciated!
