• You need to talk Peter, you have made a start here, open up to your friends and family, be honest, you need their support, if there is no-one to talk to then a good GP and AA will certainly help.

    (No defence of the government, just my tuppence)
    There needs to be a better system in place to stop people presenting at a&e with minor ailments. If only those who genuinely needed a&e were there it might be a different story.
