I'm pretty sure i have some sort pf issue that needs professional help. I know I need to do this to feel happy again. I've been anxious and having flashbacks for years. I know I need help.

but I'm so scared they will tell me I'm stressed and just a drama queen. sad

Don't be scared, they will take you seriously.

Give them as many details as you can about how you feel, your flashbacks etc.

You are doing the right thing getting help by the way, so well done!

Good luck OP!

<<holds hand>> The anticipation is usually far worse than the actually appt. you are definitely doing the right thing

If you have time and if you think you might cry or forget, can you write down the main things you want to say and give that to your doctor?

Hope the GP is helpful.
