I'm seeing my doctor tomorrow anyway but a friend is pushing me to tell them that I'm feeling horribly anxious and panicky at the moment. True, yes, but it's all situational- struggling with placement, finances, divorcing parents, very isolated- and I have my doubts as to what they could/would do. No point medicating when it's outside factors and I have no time/money for counselling (and have always got on notoriously badly with it in the past- often leaving me in a worse state than I started). Friend is concerned about my insomnia, erratic eating, slight obsessive habits- I say this is just stress and what can the doctor actually DO? (Sign me off? I just CAN'T- I was ill recently and even having one day off made everything much much worse; and I really don't want it on my medical record for schools to see when they hire me (haha!)) I'm sure that once I'm off placement and into a job, two of the issues will resolve themselves- and there's nothing a doctor can do about isolation/parental concerns; but my friend keeps pestering. Should I mention this to my doctor or just reassure my friend all is fine and maybe tell her less in future so she doesn't worry?
