"GP appointment"

About: Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire

(as the patient),

Went to see my GP today and was disgusted with his comments. I went for help and he just kept asking me what I wanted to do about things. Well if I knew I wouldn't be asking for help. I felt so shamed and belittled he made me feel like a naughty school child not knowing the answer. I feel so low and after that appointment really not sure if there is any point in carrying on as there is in his opinion nothing medically wrong with me and he isn't there to give me a counselling session. I hope no one else is subjected to this shameful experience.
