    Hello Claire,
    Thank you *so much* for sharing your story. I could have written it myself! Same medication, same issue with prescription not arriving at pharmacy, same fear/dread of the consequences of abruptly stopping medication, as I am so grateful to feel relatively well on it, and yes…it’s happened twice.
    It is so stressful, and for some reason I seem to blame myself when there’s a cock up..then have to steel myself to speak up and advocate for myself, to explain to someone who doesn’t know me, the impact that missing medication it is likely to have. I feel that I will be perceived as emotional/crazy. It’s so silly, and know logically that’s not the case, but those are my automatic thoughts.
    Anyway, it was really reassuring to hear it from someone else, though I am sorry it happened to you too. I almost feel like there needs to be a mental health practitioner in each GP surgery…but that may be a tad ambitious!
    Thank you again

    Not at all. I have only discovered your site today, and will keep reading on. You articulate these feelings so well. Thank you.
    PS I’m Caroline, but I don’t mind being Sharon for today 🙃

        Don’t be mortified at all! It made me smile and is totally the sort of thing I do (most days….!) I’ve been called a lot worse! Xx
