I went back to my family doctor because she received the recommendations from the psychiatrist consult I had. Neither of us were satisfied with his evaluation of me, or his proposed method of treatment. We are going to get a second opinion from a different psychiatrist. I don’t know if I presented really well that day, or he didn’t deem me that serious, or he just couldn’t see the seriousness of my depression (I was much more anxious that day). Probably it was a combination of the three. Either way, I knew when I left the office that day that I was unhappy with the appointment. I am really glad that my family dr got the same feeling from his letter.
So, I am to continue on the prozac and clonazepam, and stop the wellbutrin in two weeks. By then I’ll have the appointment set up with the new psych. My dr thinks the psych will take me off the wellbutrin and substitute it with something else. Sigh. It’s so frustrating. I can feel that the depression is lifting but the anxiety is still high. I just want to get better, and I’m sick of this waiting game/runaround.
Had some tears of frustration today but have been overall not too bad the past few days.
