Look after yourself first and foremost!
I was no good to anyone on the days I was too tired and angry to make good decisions. Get your own GP. In South Australia, Doctors Health SA provides after hours and weekend services to doctors and medical students.
If you don’t have a regular doctor yet, get in contact with them or the equivalent organisation in your state. It made all the difference for me. Sometimes I was just too unwell – physically or emotionally – to work, and I needed someone objective to help me get better.
Get your own psychologist too
Plenty of doctors with or without mental health conditions seek help from psychologists when in crisis. It took me a couple of tries with different clinicians before I found someone I gelled with, but it made all the difference. Tell your friends, your partner, or your parents what is going on with you – the good and the bad.
Looking back, I was at my worst when I felt alone, and at my best when I shared with others and rationalised the struggles I faced.
