I put a thread on the other day about how I've been struggling to cope with mu older dcs behaviour - they're not bad kids really I just can't cope when they play up.

Anyway I went to see mu GP today again and told her about how my older dcs have been with grandparents since Mon am and that im dreading seeing them later, and also about me walking away and leaving dc2 when she ran off and wouldn't come back.
She seemed very concerned and upped my medication and mentioned counselling again, she wants to see me again next week. Then after my appointment she walked out with Me and went straight to talk to my health visitor who has been coming out to see me.

All I can think now that she's going to get SS involved because I'm struggling to cope and I'm neglecting my children. I'm so scared I'm going to lose my kids now I wish I'd kept my big mouth shut sad

Your children will 100% not be taken away if that is all that is going on. You might be offered help and support, take it with both hands.

It is totally your anxiety. I bet they approached the health visitor to see how they can support you.
She's concerned because you are unwell and she is your doctor so responsible for your care. xx
