I have just been diagnosed with anxiety and mild depression. It was done over the phone due to COVID. My GP asked personal questions to which I answered "not at all, a little, sometimes, often, all the time". This was done in the middle of some small talk, where I am from, how long I've been in Australia, what I do for a living. I found it strange. It is also very strange for me to be writing this post now. I've never done anything like this. The next step is a mental health care plan, six sessions, and a beta blocker if I want to, to deal with my everyday anxiety.


Is this the beginning of an endless road with mental health issues? I hope something good comes out of this. I feel hopeless and very lonely, but I also know this is the right thing to do.
