I feel a bit selfish coming back and posting here asking for help again as I’ve been largely absent on the forum recently (got to the point where if I wanted to stay at work I was going to have to just work and not do anything else - in that respect I am feeling a little better at least, though I am saying this after taking a 3 hour nap after work!)
Anyway, I’m really struggling at the moment - my mood has pretty much plummeted over the last few weeks and I’m finding everything a bit of a challenge. I find I’m crying after/at work more often than not at the moment and every little thing feels like a major, unsurmountable error.
However, I’m reluctant to go to the GP about it as I don’t want all my other symptoms to then be written off as related to anxiety and/or depression. I wouldn’t mind that, but I’ve been suffering since last summer pretty much, and actually, in the last few weeks health-wise I’ve been feeling quite a bit better.
I’ve got two hospital appointments coming up in the next couple of weeks - one neurology (a six month down the road check up) and one with haemotology (as more recent blood tests have been showing low platelets and low white blood cells). Should I wait until after these appointments to bring things up with my GP or should I get help asap? I don’t want to ‘put anyone off’ from making a diagnosis but at the same time I can’t continue with work much longer with things as they stand.
Any help would be appreciated, even if it’s just to make me feel like I’m not going crazy.
