"My anxiety has been really spiking this week.

I spoke to the doctor on Thursday and he has prescribed me some medication. It was worryingly easy to get a prescription for tablets - therapy wasn’t even mentioned. It’s very different to the last time I was in the middle of an anxiety and depression episode - then it was all about the therapy, meds were the last resort. I guess there just isn’t the capacity for talking therapies, it’s probably cheaper just to throw pills at us."
