> Hope things aren't too bad while you're waiting to see them. Are Ts a part of the NHS too? If so, why is it that you could see your old T, but keep gettiing passed around by p-docs?

My T is affiliated with my university, so there is more flexibility there. When I first went I didn't particularly get a choice, but I've specified now that I have arranged to go back.

> I took Lithium when I was a teen, don't know why, but I remember nausea and weight gain. It didn't do anything positive for me, so I can understand your reluctance. Have you been on benzos for the anxiety?

I haven't really had any anxiety before, nothing usually bothers me. I know this is technically anxiety, but it doesn't feel like it. It just feels annoying.

> It really stinks that you can't see the p-doc of your choice. I sure hope we don't get a health care system like that here. Although I guess the trade off is that the expenses here are high to see the doc of your choice and Rx's are expensive, but I prefer that to someone telling me who I can and can't see. Your GP couldn't Rx the meds you think would help?

I counldn't afford to be treated at all under the US system, so I suppose it is good. You can go private if you can afford it. There are limiations on what treatments the GP can initiate, some meds have to be started by a pdoc (but can represcribe).

> Do you think it's all worse because of the long med school hours, or your work at the hospital?Hope the 3 weeks till you see your T goes by quickly, and that you don't have the awful thoughts or any more panic.

Maybe. I was in til past 2am most nights last week, but have a more lax timetable this week. Whem I'm not busy I can spend the whole day in bed. I'm so behind with my work but can't be bothered to do it.

I hope the time passes quickly too, but I keep thinking 'at least it gives me time to cancel'. I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing.
