There seems to have been a lot of posts on here about fear, panic and anxiety recently.
I consider myself a bit of an 'oldtimer' but recent news and the all too well known torturous wait for results has knocked me for 6 this time.
So I 'gave in' and went to the GP and got some pharmacuticals. Diazepam.
I've been prescribed these before to get me through a couple of MRI's and when I was waiting for my initial appointment for my Cervical cancer diagnosis I was prescribed sleeping pills.
The point of this post is to let people know that your GP can be very understanding of the stress waiting for results etc can be and CAN help by prescribing something to tide you over the very worst bits.
We have no shame in getting the docs to sort us out physically so don't forget they can help us out mentally too.
